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 turned it down. 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. Its lyrics draw an extended metaphor of a lover as a dangerous yet addictive drug. In the United States, it became her fourth top-ten single, peaking at number nine. It features Spears as a secret agent in search of a vial of green liquid. After she steals it, she enters an apartment and poisons her boyfriend. The video also includes interspersed scenes of Spears naked with diamonds on her body. It's really different, that's why I like it so much.
