  1. Outrageous

    "Outrageous" is a song by American recording artist Britney Spears from her fourth album, In the Zone. It was released on July 19, 2004 by Jive Records as the fourth and final single from the album. It was written and produced by R. Kelly. The song was the record label's choice for first and second single, but Spears pushed for "Me Against the Music" and "Toxic" respectively, to be released instead. It was finally announced as a single after it was selected as the theme song for the 2004 film Catwoman. "Outrageous" is an R&B song with influences of hip hop and an exotic feel. Lyrically, it talks about materialism and entertainment. "Outrageous" received mixed reviews from critics. Some praised its funky sound, noting its influence from Michael and Janet Jackson, while others deemed it as "forgettable". "Outrageous" only charted in the United States, entering many of Billboard's component charts and peaking at number seventy-nine in the Hot 100. Spears only performed the song once, on 2004's The Onyx Hotel Tour. The music video was being shot in New York City in June 2004, when Spears hurt her knee and had to undergo arthroscopic surgery. The video was canceled, as well as The Onyx Hotel Tour and the feature in the Catwoman soundtrack. A composite of different scenes was released in the DVD Greatest Hits: My Prerogative.
