Like a serving of grits without cheese, no one asked for this — but it’s here now.
“It Should Be Easy (feat. will.u.not)” was just added to Britney‘s VEVO/YouTube account this morning.
That’s right: Not “Alien.” Not “Til It’s Gone.” Not “Tik Tik Boom.” Nay, not even “Chillin’ With You” with Queen of Country, Jamie Lynn Spears — “It Should Be Easy.”
For the record (REFERENCE), according to The Very Official MuuMuse Poll, “It Should Be Easy” came in at #6 as the ideal next single off of Britney Jean, The Album For The Fans.
Let me tell you a fun fact about “It Should Be Easy”: It’s not very good.
Now don’t get me wrong — it doesn’t completely suck. If you take a step back and imagine that the robot speak-singing into your ears in between will.u.not’s nasal nonsense is just a no-name session singer, “It Should Be Easy” is a perfectly acceptable club jam that would probably go down real big at a shirtless twink club night called, like, Slip ‘N Slide.
But it’s not just a robot in those verses: It’s the Legendary Miss Britney Spears.
And let’s not get it twisted: This is still a thinly veiled will.i.am song featuring Britney — not that it even sounds like her beneath all the overly produced noise. She’s vocoded to such a degree that it makes Heidi Montag‘s Superficial sound like an homage to Adele‘s 21.
As a single, this’ll do no favors for the defenders of Vocalney.
Let us come together and pray that this is only some sort of club promo — or just a sick joke at the paws of Hannah Spears.
It should be easy…but it’s not.
