Lily Allen Cover of "Womanizer" by Britney Spears

Britney vs. Lily: Whose "Womanizer" Is Best?

It certainly doesn't take long for a song to get covered these days! It's only been a few weeks since we first heard Britney Spears's "Womanizer," and British star Lily Allen has just released her own, slightly slowed down version.

I was actually surprised by how faithful Allen's version (which apparently has gotten her in a bunch of trouble with her record label!) is to the original — a few fewer vocal effects, maybe, and a little more downbeat, sort of "Lily Allen sings 'Womanizer' in a piano bar." I could see myself listening to it, but at the same time, there's just that special Britney energy to the original. Take a listen to both versions and let me know: Which "Womanizer" wins?
