Body Ache

Album: Britney Jean (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This ode to dancing hard in a club finds Britney singing,

    "I wanna dance 'til my body ache
    A little bit longer
    Turn you on, make you radiate
    A little bit stronger."

    She explained the song's meaning: "I think this song speaks to my biggest passion which has always been dancing. I think at my core, I am a dancer through and through. When I cut this song I was right in the middle of dance rehearsals for my Vegas show. The show I'm putting together has more dance than any show I've ever done. I guess I was dancing until my body ached every single day."
  • The song was produced by Black Eyes Peas leader will.i.am, his frequent collaborator Anthony Preston and French DJ David Guetta. Will.i.am sported producer credits on seven of the ten songs on Britney Jean. As the album's executive producer, he was responsible for shaping the sound and direction of the record.
