WOW! Was our first reaction to Britney's hot new video for her single 3 when we first spotted it online this weekend. And the song ain't bad either...
The star has already bagged the US chart top spot as she went straight to number one when the single was released stateside. It's the first time since 1998 that a non American Idol singer has gone straight in at the top of the US charts.
When we say the video is hot, we mean quite literally. At the beginning of the clip we see Britney dolling herself up at her dressing table and then getting down to some serious dancing action with her backing dancers. Britters dons a variety of skin-tight outfits including a lacy jumpsuit and plunging white leotard. She then dispenses with the dancers and goes solo in a steam-filled room.
The song was produced by Max Martin who is arguably the man responsible for Britney's rise to fame as he wrote her debut track, Baby One More Time as well as the hits Oops!... I Did It Again and Stronger.
