Live Performance[edit]

I think a section should be added for the live performance of the song. It has already been performed on Britney Spears: Piece of Me so I think some information about that and a picture of the performance would make this article even better. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.101.77.42 (talk) 04:38, 16 March 2014 (UTC)

Review

Overview[edit]

Prose[edit]

Lead

— "It is scheduled to be released in 2014 by RCA Records as a single from the record." (Move this to the end of the first paragraph)

  • Yes check.svg Done

— The part referring to the album reception is unnecessary considering the scope of the article. (Only the 'Despite...' part)

  • Yes check.svg Done
Background

— "The song was recorded on August 5, 2013." (Unsourced)

  • Yes check.svg Done
Composition

— "Mid-tempo" doesn't need a hyphen. — What reference supports it being a dance-pop midtempo number? If there is one it should be next to that part of the text.

  • Yes check.svg Done
Critical reception

— "shared a similar sentiment, expressed" → "expressing" — Try to paraphrase the section a bit; right now it is kind of a quote farm.

  • Yes check.svg Done
References

— FN13 has an incorrect title.

  • Yes check.svg Done

— Digital Spy's publisher is Hearst Magazines UK.

  • Yes check.svg Done

— The Huffington Post shouldn't be italicized.

  • Yes check.svg Done

File usage[edit]

— One image that has OTRS ticket to confirm permission. Checks out okay.

2:14 mark skip[edit]

Shouldn't it be mentioned somewhere that the song noticeably skips at the 2:14 mark during "and the light in your eyes"? William Orbit has confirmed this glitch.

"Alien" 'glich'[edit]

The 'glitch' in the song "Alien" is, in fact not a glich. It is acutally at te point on the song where someone accidentally erased the end of the track and they had to re record it. I have no source because i was reading about it on a music forum years ago. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Graffiti Heart (talkcontribs) 08:42, 11 August 2015 (UTC)
