About Clumsy

"Clumsy" is a song recorded by American singer Britney Spears for her ninth studio album, Glory (2016). It serves as the record's second promotional single, being released on August 11, 2016 for digital download and streaming by RCA Records and Sony Music. It was provided as an instant gratification track for those who pre-ordered Glory. "Clumsy" was written by Talay Riley, Warren "Oak" Felder and Alex Niceforo, while production was handled by Felder and Alex Nice; Mischke served as a vocal producer. Musically, "Clumsy" portrays a "synth-laden" electro song which incorporates doo-wop hand claps, stomping drums, finger snaps, soulful vocal riffs and an electronic drop in its instrumentation. Spears also alludes to her 2000 single "Oops!... I Did It Again" during the track's breakdowns. The lyrical themes of the recording delve on sex and how the singer and her suitor are clumsy during intimate moments. Writers from AllMusic, The Boston Globe, musicOMH and Rolling Stone considered the track a highlight of Glory while the latter listed it as one of the best songs of 2016. Commercially, "Clumsy" charted at number 142 in France, where it remained for two weeks on the SNEP chart. Spears added the song to the setlist of her Britney Spears: Piece of Me Tour in July 2018.

Clumsy
But I love how you go down
Head first and slide it out
Again and again

Clumsy
Keep on bumping into you
Bangin' all over this bedroom
Again and again

Call me a fool, call me insane
But don’t call it a day
Closer to you, closer to pain
It's better than far away
Whoaaa

Fooling around and then we smash
Again and again (come here, baby)
Clumsy
Never told a soul about what we've done
You let it roll right off your tongue
Again and again

Call me a fool, call me insane
But don’t call it a day
Closer to you, closer to pain
