"Break the Ice" is a song by American pop singer Britney Spears. Written by Nate "Danja" Hills, Marcella "Ms. Lago" Araica, Keri Hilson and James Washington, it was produced by Danja for Spears' fifth studio album, Blackout. The track was released as the third and final single from the album in the first quarter of 2008.
Some critics have suggested that this would have been a more suitable album lead-off track than "Gimme More ," since in this song, Spears re-introduces herself at the top and apologizes for being gone for so long. .
