Riff: Britney Spears – “Perfume”

Nov 7, 2013

I want to believe/It’s just you and me/Sometimes it feels like there’s three of us in here baby

from Perfume lyrics by Britney Spears

Suspicious that her partner is playing away, a paranoid Britney sprays him head to toe with one of her many designer fragrances in a transparent attempt to mark her territory on an emotive Sia-penned ballad that sounds exactly like every other emotive Sia-penned ballad; [LISTEN].
