Well look at this. Three of pop’s biggest acts in the world right now have come together for a remix of Britney Spears’ “Till The World Ends.” Britney’s club banger remains in full swing, but now on board are hip-hop queen Nicki Minaj and party-pop queen Ke$ha. Although a countdown to the single’s drop date remains on each artist’s website, it seems that the “Till The World Ends” remix has shown up earlier than expected — but probably just because it was too good to keep in hiding (or because rabid fans no longer will go to the ends of the Earth to get their hands on a leak (see: “Judas“).
The “Till The World Ends” remix doesn’t veer too far from Britney’s original cut, but Nicki opens the song with her usually dramatic flair, dipping into an alter ego (or two), and even taking the time to name-check Ricki Lake. Not mad at that. Ke$ha’s vocals — a signature combination of singing, rapping and Auto-Tune — amps up the electricity, making “Till The World Ends” somehow more fun than it already is, which is quite a feat, considering Ke$ha wrote the song.
Of course, we’re just hoping Nicki Minaj joins Britney every time she performs the song this summer. And we’re hoping for a video. And we’re hoping for a feature film. Maybe a line of “Till The World End” remix-branded clothing? Too much?
