What has Britney got in store for us this week? You will need to wait and see – we hear it is pretty exciting though… EEK!
Over the last week – we missed a very important milestone for one of Britney’s most iconic singles! So this week, we dedicate our entire Planet Britney to ‘Boys.’ Happy 14th Birthday!
The Neptunes remixed their own original production with a Hip-Hop beat for the movie Austin Powers In Goldmember. This version is known as the Co-ed remix and features vocals by Pharrell Williams, who is one of The Neptunes members. The other member of The Neptunes is Chad Hugo. Together, they record as N.E.R.D.
Mike Myers appears in the video as Austin Powers. Britney in return appears in the movie as a Fembot and gets blown up!!
Other than the obvious – The video features actors DJ Qualls, Jason Priestly and Taye Diggs.
In the UK Britney’s 2002 single from the soundtrack of “Austin Powers In Goldmember,” “Boys (Co-Ed Remix feat. Pharrell Williams)” was released as the 4th single, whilst “I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll” was released as the 4th single in Europe, Australia & Asia. The CD also includes the album version of the song, which was not commercially released.
The music video for “Boys” was directed by Dave Meyers. The video was nominated for at the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards for Best Video from a film, but lost to Eminem’s “Lose Yourself.”
Celebrate with us by watching the epic music video – that BTW deserves way more than 35 million views! Get to work y’all!
That is all for this week! We are excited to see what this week has in store for us!
