Til It's Gone

Album: Britney Jean (2013)
  • This bass-heavy David Guetta and will.i.am produced club banger finds Britney declaring how you'll never know what is truly good until it is gone. This is one of several tracks on Britney Jean that draws inspiration from her split from fiancé Jason Trawick. "Well during this album, I had a breakup with Jason that I went through that I wrote a lot about," she explained during a sit-down on Good Morning America. "They suck. Breakups suck, they do."
  • Britney described this as "a post-break up song." She added: "It's true... You never really know what you have until it's gone. Life is funny like that. Think I've kicked myself a few times after breaking up w someone. Don't know why it's always so clear AFTER you breakup."
