The bow-down-to-Godney press reviews are already rolling in for Britney's seventh studio effort, Femme Fatale. And that's in addition to Rolling Stone giving four out of five stars and Popjustice calling the album "basically brilliant." Check it out:
"...entirely unapologetic, dark, throbbing dance-pop..." —Us Weekly
"Spears shows that she can still give the Lady Gagas and Rihannas of the pop world a serious challenge on the dance floor. Femme Fatale is a nonstop party, starting off with a fun flourish with the poppy 'Till the World Ends' and winding down with the dark, downbeat 'Criminal.'" —Associated Press
"This is a great dance record. Revoke my critic's card, label me a pop poseur, confiscate my Bob Dylan vinyl, but it's the truth. Brit's seventh studio album kills as a dancefloor soundtrack." —Boston Herald
"Spears and her fans needed this record. Pop music needed this record. It’s engaging, and, in pulling the best elements from her past two efforts, Spears and her production crew built a purely blissful account of currently-trending tunes." —Consequence of Sound
"Molded by all-star helmers Max Martin and Dr. Luke, the album is a ballad-free, treadmill-ready playlist of tireless dance beats and top-shelf production." —Entertainment Weekly
"Either taking a gamble or just a reflection of her own tastes, Fatale is the most club-ready album from a major artist since Madonna's Confessions on a Dance Floor." —Hit Fix
"Brit's always delivered on the dance floor — and the beat goes on here with the saucy come-ons of 'Hold It Against Me,' the robot swagger of 'Big Fat Bass' and the Ke$ha-written party-girl anthem 'Till The World Ends.' —In Touch Weekly
"Other pop artists will come and go, but Britney Spears is a true femme fatale who makes the best pop music around — and you can hold that against me." —Pop Boi
"7 out of 10." —SPIN
"Reviews are starting to pour in for Britney Spears' latest release, Femme Fatale, and the consensus seems to be that the pop star has delivered 'another Blackout,' which in the parlance of Spears' fans means it's good — real good." —PopEater

STM Experience: Taylor Swift - "Speak Now" World Tour Live in Manila

It's been a while since the last time I went out to watch a concert. 10.10.10 was the last concert I went to, which is Adam Lambert's "Glam Nation Tour" at the SM Mall of Asia open grounds. 4 months later, here I am again making a concert review to share my wonderful experience to all of STM's avid readers. And trust me, I enjoyed this one so much!

Manila was lucky enough to be part of Taylor Swift's "Speak Now" World Tour. After successful concerts in Singapore, South Korea and Japan, it's Manila's turn to witness Taylor Swift's explosive country extravaganza on Feb 19.

Chosen by Taylor Swift herself, Filipino talent, Sam Concepcion opened the concert at exactly 8pm with his version of Chris Brown's "Yeah Yeah Yeah". His second song was Kung Fu Panda's theme "Kung Fu Fighting", followed by his hit, "Even If". His last song was a rendition of Katy Perry's recent hit, "Firework" which delighted the audience.

Taylor's set did not start until 9pm. When the lights went down, it was Swift's opening song, "Sparks Fly". Audience went crazy! It was indeed the start of a magical night with country music's favorite princess. Here's the concert set list:

1. Sparks Fly

2. Mine
3. The Story of Us
4. Back to December/ Apologize/ You’re Not Sorry (medley)
5. Better Than Revenge
6. Speak Now
7. Fearless (Acoustic)/ I’m Yours (medley)
8. Fifteen
9. You Belong with Me
10. Dear John
11. Enchanted
12. Long Live
13. Love Story

I must admit that this is one of the best concerts I've ever been to. The crowd is awesome, singing all of the songs throughout the entire concert. Right from the start, you'll know that this is an audience full of energy and true enough, they never lost the energy until the concert ended. Even Taylor herself got amazed at how incredible the audience was and expressed her happiness through her Twitter account right after the show.

Of course, Taylor was as energetic as her audience, dancing, jumping and running throughout the entire concert which delighted the crowd. She was even uttering Filipino terms from time to time. I believe she said "Magandang Gabi" (Good Evening), "Salamat" (Thank You"), Mahal Ko Kayo" (I Love You) and "Kumusta" (How Are You) to which the audience responded with loud cheers. She also had a few costume changes: The sparkly gown on "Sparks Fly", the blue dress on "Speak Now", the shining gown on "Enchanted" and the white dress on "Love Story", which added excitement to the whole experience of watching Swift perform.

The moment Taylor appeared on stage, every person at the Big Dome instantly got mesmerized. There's something about this girl that captivates you. Like when you we're a child and obsessed with Barbie. Maybe because her songs are about experiences. Our personal experiences. We easily relate to every heartbreak and tear and happiness and boy crush that she has or had in the past. Not to mention the charismatic beauty this artist has and the heart of a down-to-earth person. Truly, it was enchanting to meet this artist in person and share with her, even for a night, all of the wonderful experiences of being a teen and being in love.

Britney Spears' 'Hold It Against Me' Debuts Atop Hot 100

Britney Spears becomes just the second artist in the Billboard Hot 100's 52-year history to debut multiple songs at No. 1, as "Hold It Against Me" blasts in at the summit.

Spears previously launched at the apex with "3" the week of Oct. 24, 2009. She joins Mariah Carey as the only acts to arrive at No. 1 more than once. Carey made such grand entrances with "Fantasy" and "One Sweet Day" in 1995 and "Honey" in 1997. (All charts will be refreshed tomorrow (Jan. 20) on

"Hold It Against Me" is the 18th song to debut at No. 1 and the first since Ke$ha's "We R Who We R" the week of Nov. 13, 2010.

The track is Spears' fourth No. 1 on the Hot 100. Prior to "3," she reigned with her debut single "...Baby One More Time" (two weeks, 1999) and "Womanizer" (one week, 2008).

"Hold It Against Me" starts atop Digital Songs with 411,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. As previously reported, the sum marks the highest debut frame by a lead female artist, besting the 325,000 shifted by Taylor Swift's "Today Was a Fairytale" the week of Feb. 6, 2010.

On Radio Songs, "Hold It Against Me" begins at No. 23 with 45 million first-week audience impressions, according to Nielsen BDS, the highest audience sum for a debuting title in the chart's history. The song's No. 23 entrance is the chart's best since Mariah Carey's "Touch My Body" began at the same rank the week of March 1, 2008.

Britney Spears' 'Hold It Against Me' Soars Onto Pop Songs Chart

Two other tracks storm the upper reaches of the Hot 100. "What the Hell," the first single from Avril Lavigne's fourth album, "Goodbye Lullaby," due March 8, opens at No. 13. The song starts at No. 6 on Digital Songs with sales of 163,000.

At No. 23 on the Hot 100, Kanye West and Jay-Z debut with "H*A*M." The first single from the superstar pair's upcoming collaborative album, "Watch the Throne," enters Digital Songs at No. 10 (125,000).

Directly below "Hold It Against Me" on the Hot 100, three titles dip one notch each: Bruno Mars' "Grenade" (1-2), Katy Perry's "Firework" (2-3) and Rihanna's "What's My Name?," featuring Drake (3-4).

Wiz Khalifa's "Black and Yellow" lifts 7-5, jumping Enrique Iglesias' "Tonight (I'm Lovin' You)," featuring Ludacris & DJ Frank E (6-6), while "We R Who We R" slides 4-7.

P!nk descends 5-8 with "Raise Your Glass" but claims dual Greatest Gainer/Digital and Airplay honors with "F**kin' Perfect" (57-30). The second new track from her "Greatest Hits... So Far!!!" retrospective bounds 66-25 on Digital Songs (70,000, up 95%) and 68-44 (27.5 million, up 54%) on Radio Songs.

The Black Eyed Peas' "The Time (Dirty Bit)" and Mars' "Just the Way You Are" round out the Hot 100 top 10, each dropping a rung to Nos. 9 and 10, respectively.

"Hold It Against Me" Dominates!

Britney Spears may be on top of the world once again as her new single "Hold It Against Me" dominates iTunes charts worldwide, only a few hours after its release! In fact, Britney even broke the record she set for her other number one hit, "Womanizer" which reached iTunes US' peak 17 hours after its release. HIAM claimed that spot in an incredibly shorter time of less than 10 hoursAs of this writing, "Hold It Against Me" is currently holding the number one spot on iTunes in 13 countries including: US, New Zealand, Spain, Mexico, Sweden, France, Finland, Greece, Portugal, Norway, Italy, Canada and Denmark.

The song also made records on radio, registering the most first day radio spins with 705, beating out Mariah Carey’s 498 for “Touch My Body”. It also got 7.584 Audience Impressions from Pop Radio – Over 9 million impressions in total from all formats. This is millions more than Britney’s last two chart toppers, “3″ and “Womanizer”, both got.

Not to mention, HIAM has been universally critically-acclaimed: 4/5 Stars from Rolling Stone, 4.5/5 from Artist Direct, and positive reviews from L.A. Times, Top 40, The Sun, Popjustice, MTV, Yahoo Music, Idolator, and Neon Limelight.
