On Friday, the Queen regained her throne in the clouds of Music as Britney Spears released her first album since “Britney Jean.” “Glory” is the highly anticipated start to the 9th era of Britney, bitch!
“Glory” isn’t anything like the past three album (Circus, Femme Fatale, and Britney Jean for those that don’t know). It’s more of an R&B urban style album with hints. It draws inspiration from two of Britney’s, Ms. Spears if you’re nasty, more claimed albums-“In the Zone” and “Blackout.” Both are not the poppy style that we are used to with Britney but are regarded as her best work.
The album is Sex. Pure sex. Not sure what that means, but Britney doesn’t be around the bush with any of the songs. All have some sort of sexual innuendo or hinting towards it in some way, shape, or form. Britney pretty much wants the D. “Do You Wanna Come Over?”, “Slumber Party”, and “Liar” are just a few of my favorites off the album. The album only has one bad song and it’s not even really bad. “Private Show” just feels out-of-place on the album. I get why she wants it on there but still. It just doesn’t match the feel of the album: Urban dance sex pop. Nothing says dance sex pop like Britney belting the f word while doing a little vocal run. The album makes “Make Me..” look like a bad first single….which it is compared to the other songs on here.
Overall, the album is amazing. It feels like she was actually present for the album. It’s definitely a welcome change of pace, especially after what was “Britney Jean.”I cannot wait to see all that goes into this album. Speaking of which, here’s the album for your ears to enjoy:
