Riff: Britney Spears – “Brightest Morning Star”

Dec 2, 2013

I lift my hands and pray ’cause life’s tough somedays/But I will not lose faith ’cause you will lead the way

from Brightest Morning Star lyrics by Britney Spears

Perhaps wisely relegated to bonus track status, Spears pays tribute to her sons Sean and Jayden with a series of over-earnest sentiments which appear to have been lifted from a Hallmark card on a cloying Disney-esque synth-pop ballad which lacks any genuine emotional punch.
