Recently, her boyfriend, Sam Asghari, posted an Instagram story of the two driving. In the video, which shows the car stereo and road, Britney belts out the lyrics to "Lonely" from her 2001 self-titled album.
As the track begins playing, Britney says, "This is a song I wrote that I was proud of." In response, Sam says, "I love this song."
Lyrically, the song explores a woman escaping from a manipulative relationship. Some of the lines Britney sings include, "Think of times / You made me cry / You had me so confused / I'm tired of trying / Leave behind this / What's a girl to do?"
It's hard not to read between the lines (or just read the lines, honestly), especially given the hell Britney has been through for the past 13 years under her conservatorship.
And "Lonely" seems like the perfect anthem for Britney right now.
