Britney Spears - Circus: Wikipedia Album Entry
Circus is the sixth studio album by American pop singer Britney Spears. It was released on November 28, 2008 by Jive Records. Spears started working on the album earlier that year with a range of new producers as well as with Bloodshy & Avant and Danja, combining the electropop and urban sounds from her previous album, Blackout, with producers of her first early pop hits such as Max Martin.
Circus takes influence from a variety of pop genres, such as electropop and dance and has been called a sequel to Blackout. She described the album as more lighter than its predecessor, which was more urban sounding. To a lesser degree, the album draws elements from other genres, such as a 1960s go-go rock guitar in Mmm Papi. Circus focuses on different themes and Spears "does double duty as a dance diva and brokenhearted balladeer." Lyrically, it has been compared to Blackout, due to the fact that they are both "fiery" and "confrontational."
