Brit may have released her 13th fragrance this month, but now she’s debuted a different ‘Perfume’—her second new single, that is. “This is like sharing a piece of my heart,” the pop queen said when she posted the audio earlier today. In the vein of similar tender-hearted tracks from her earlier years, she drops the princess act and lets her self-consciousness show in a genuine display that sounds torn from her private diary—minus the drippy T.Swift connotations that brings to mind.
Spears told E! exclusively, “‘Perfume’ is incredibly special to me because it hits close to home, and I think the story is relatable to everyone […] Everyone’s been through an insecure moment in a relationship that’s left them vulnerable and I think this song captures that.”
♫ “I want to believe / it’s just you and me. / Sometimes it feels like there’s three / of us in here baby. / So, I wait for you to call / and I try to act natural. / Have you been thinking ’bout her or about me?” ♪
