Anticipating

[an-tis-uh-peyt]

"Anticipating" was the fourth French single to be released from Britney Spears' third studio album Britney, While "I Love Rock 'n' Roll" was released as the fourth European single. In Brazil, "Anticipating" was released in 2003 during the Brazilian summer. The track was the fifth single to be taken from Britney.

The song was written and produced by Brian Kierulf, Josh Schwartz, as well as by Britney: it is her first single that has her own writing credits. The track was featured in a commercial for the Toyota Vios. Spears said of the song, "It's just a fun song that I wrote. It's just like being with your girlfriends and just dancing. I think this track also has a very Seventies' feel to it.

Music video

Having no time to shoot a proper music video for "Anticipating", the performance from the Live from Las Vegas concert was used in place of a video. This is the very first music video of Spears in which she performs live. In it, Britney and her female performers dance around the stage in colorful outfits. Then, Britney hops into a pink car and encourages the audience to sing along. The video was originally intended to be an animated video, featuring a cartoon Britney cruising around Paris (because of its release in France) in a convertible.
