There’s a good reason why Britney Spears’ “Toxic” causes memories of your youth to come flooding back. Brit’s hit will turn 15 next year! So what better time to give the pop standard a makeover ahead of its big milestone?
High School Musical alum Ashley Tisdale does just that by stripping down Spears’ 2003 pop wonder and turning it into something, well, mature.
Tisdale covered the song as part of her “Music Sessions” series with her husband Chris French accompanying on guitar. “I grew up with Britney Spears and ‘Toxic’ is one of my favorite songs,” gushes Tisdale.
The dance beats and Bollywood strings are gone, and an all-grown-up song emerges. Check it out below.
