"Womanizer" of Britney Spears, Jumped to No. 1

Britney Spears’ “Womanizer” is the first single from her upcoming sixth studio album, "Circus" which is due in stores on December 2, 2008. This was also announced as the lead single from the said album. 'Womanizer' was first released to radio stations worldwide on September 26, 2008 and was released commercially in the United States on October 7, 2008 through digital distribution jumping from No. 96 to the top spot and selling 286,000 downloads in its first week.

This latest album of hers which is titled “Circus” from Jive Records featured collaborations with Max Martin, Danja and Bloodshy & Avant. It contains these track lists: 1. Womanizer, 2. Circus, 3. Out From Under, 4. Kill The Lights, 5. Shattered Glass, 6. If U Seek Amy, 7. Unusual You, 8. Blur, 9. Mmm Papi, 10. Mannequin, 11. Lace and Leather, 12. My Baby and 13. Radar [Bonus Track].

This music video was filmed on September 24 & 25, 2008, at a Los Angeles nightclub and restaurant. It was directed by Joseph Khan, who had previously directed Spears' videos, 'Stronger' in 2000 and 'Toxic' in 2003. She dons assorted wigs and costumes in which the video begins with Britney lying in a sauna completely nude. It then switches to a not-so-innocent looking Britney wearing a grey satin robe with a black bra peeking out; she's cooking her beau [Brandon Stoughton] breakfast. He checks his schedule, and sees he has an important business meeting. He dresses and appears in his office. He sees another Britney dressed like a secretary with short black hair and glasses. She and many of the other workers dance around him while she calls him a 'womanizer'. They go into a copy room, and he takes pictures of her on his phone and flirts with her. She sits on the copy machine and copies her buttocks showing nothing but black underwear. She rips it in half and throws his face on the copy machine … etc., etc. This has stormed up the charts to hit the top spots in several different countries, France, Spain and Sweden including Canada and the U.S.

There are two versions of the video, the rated or the censored version (featured on ABC) and the Director's Cut [Uncensored]. The differences between the two is, the unrated version shows Spears completely nude, while the rated one shows steam covering her body. A comparison from her flirtatious "Toxic"[2003] music video and her first "Oops!...I Did It Again"[2000] could be well made as you watch them below.
