While the piano ballad is quite lovely and surprisingly emotional for the usually robotic, hyper-produced Brit Brit, it doesn't exactly fit with the rest of the booty-shaking anthems on 'Femme Fatale,' so it's not entirely surprising it was left off the album.
"Everyday, the sun comes up again/ A little hope begins/ And it starts with you, 'cause you get me through it/ And everyday closer to the shore/ I smile a little more/ And because of your faith, I get closer now everyday," Britney sings, flexing her pipes without (as much) Auto-Tune to hide behind.
Pretty as the Britney B-side may be, some are already starting to draw the comparisons between the newly surfaced track and another ballad, Christina Aguilera's 'Beautiful.' From chord progression to lyrics, the new track may resurrect the old pop princess rivalry between Brit and her fellow ex-Mousketeer Xtina -- or at least between their fans.
