BRITNEY SPEARS
 
 
  Home
Britney is my favourite female singer. There is no doubt the songs written by the Cheiron songwriters played a huge part in her success. The songs suit her voice perfectly and I can't imagine that these songs could ever be sung better by another female.

6 October 2008: Ages ago on the forum, I heard that Max Martin has a song on Britney's "Circus"!!

 
  Rami Yacoub Could this be true??? That the song is the best Max has ever done?? !!

  Songwriters

23 November 2006: Niklas from Gotheburg, Sweden emailed me and said he remembers that he read in a Swedish newspaper that Max, Rami and Robyn went to the States to write for Britney's album In The Zone. Though when In The Zone came out there were no Max Martin songs on it. It would seem that Jive records changed the sound of the album because of Britney recording a song with Madonna. One song that could have been written for Britney is "Extra Ordinary Love" which has been recorded by Darin on his album Break The News. Another could have been Celine Dion's "Love Is All We Need".

Very interesting, thanks Niklas for letting me know this information.
