Britney’s New Hit about a “Threesome” Jumps to Number One

Ooops… she did it again.

Britney has discovered the secret to releasing number one songs- over-the-top sexuality!

On September 29th Britney released a new single called “3″ … a song about a ménage a trios. Here’s a glimpse of the lyrics:

Merrier the more
Triple fun that way
Twister on the floor
What do you say?

Are – you in
Livin’ in sin is the new thing (yeah)
Are – you in
I am countin’!

1, 2, 3
Not only you and me
Got one eighty degrees
And I’m caught in between
Countin’
1, 2, 3

You can read all the lyrics here on BritneySpears.com.

The song isn’t even 10 days old and it’s already the number one downloaded song on iTunes. If you’re curious what people think of this song, jump on iTunes and read some of the comments from listeners like, “it’s fun, catchy, and filled with playful lyrics about having a threesome- what more could you want?!”

Billboard reported that the song was part of the “Britney Spears The Singles Collection,” a hit compilation due Nov. 24 on Jive.

Produced by Swedish hitmaker Max Martin (Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson), “3″ finds Spears singing about the racy subject of a ménage a trios with her signature coy delivery. “Three is a charm, two is not the same,” Spears coos seductively on the verse. “I don’t see the harm, so are you game?”

Hmmmmm. “I don’t see the harm, so are you game?” (This is the mindset I was just talking about out of Spears and other celebs in my Gaga article- point #3, ironically, at the bottom of the article)

I almost wonder if this song will slip under the radar again like so many pop songs do, with little tweens singing “1, 2, 3…” and their parents won’t have a clue what they’re singing (Just like If You Seek Amy and the Superman dance). Teenagers, on the other hand, definitely know what she’s singing about. They just don’t admit that the lyrics DO affect them.

    Wow, that is so disgusting. How low will Britney Spears go? Is this really her way of being “cool” and back in the game? I can’t imagine people actually thinking a “threesome” is cool just because Britney says so, but apparently they like the song. Scary.

    One of my kids put a vid on facebook the other day of her teacher doing the “Soldja Boy” or “Soulja Boi” or whatever the spelling is. And this student goes to the area Chiistian school that I am crazy about. This is why I love your site. If you hadn’t told me what that was all about I’d probably be singing it in the Christmas play here at church or something. Keep spilling info on us. Thanks S4YM. By the way if you’re in the middle tennessee area at Christmas, join us for “Big Christmas with Lil’ Wayne.” It’s off the chain.
