Released as the second single from In the Zone , the song was initially offered to Kylie Minogue for her ninth studio album Body Language , but she rejected it. A dance-pop and techno-pop song with elements of bhangra music , "Toxic" features varied instrumentation, such as drums , synthesizers and surf guitar. It is accompanied by high-pitched Bollywood strings , sampled from Lata Mangeshkar and S. Balasubrahmanyam 's " Tere Mere Beech Mein " , and breathy vocals.
It was released on November 27, by Jive Records as the second single from the album, but was actually the last song recorded. The song, acting as the singer's manifesto , has biographical lyrics retelling Spears's mishaps. It can be classified as an electropop , dance-pop and EDM-pop song that features an "electro instrumental track" and runs through a down-tempo dance beat. Most music critics cite "Piece of Me" as one of the highlights of Blackout.
