In 2007, Britney Spears released “Piece Of Me” from the Blackout album, and the song prominently featured the Philippines in its lyrics. Verse one of the song goes: “I’m Miss American Dream since I was 17/Don’t matter if I step on the scene or sneak away to the Philippines/They’re still goin’ put pictures of my derriere in the magazine/You want a piece of me?”
Britney finally gets to go to the Philippines and she may have to sneak into the country as well if she wants to avoid the mob of millions of fans awaiting her arrival for the Piece of Me tour at the Mall of Asia Arena on June 15.
The song peaked at No. 18 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and went on to become a hit. When Britney performs this number a few weeks from now before thousands of Manila fans, it will definitely be extra special.
Expect Britney to light up the stage with special effects and a catalogue of hits that speak for her pop icon status. Let’s enumerate some of them and remind her fan base of the soundtrack of their lives: “Oops… I Did It Again,” “Baby One More Time,” “Toxic,” “Womanizer,” “Stronger,” “Don’t Let Me Be The Last To Know,” “I’m A Slave 4 U,” “Me Against The Music,” “Gimme More,” “Hold It Against Me,” “Circus,” “Lucky,” among many others.
Those songs are enough reasons to watch Britney live.
