Make Me... is the lead single from Britney Spears' ninth studio album, Glory. It features the rapper G-Eazy.[1] The single was originally to be released on May 20th, 2016, and performed at the Billboard Music Awards on May 22, 2016, but was delayed until a later date due to production difficulties. It was finally released on July 14, 2016 at midnight and premiered on B97 New Orleans radio.

BackgroundEdit

On April 11, 2016, Britney confirmed the release of her new album and single, "Make Me..." (titled 'Make Me (Oooh)' at the time). A reliable source (Las Vegas Sun) noted "Britney will shoot the video for her new single next Monday, and both will be released four weeks later when editing is completed. The concept for the video is all set."

The source also noted, “The single and the video will thrill fans because it’s all new, totally different and somewhat unexpected. It’s different; it’s a turn. She's gone from pretty straight-forward pop to a really interesting vibe with a lot of really cool stuff." If all goes as planned, Britney’s new ninth studio album will follow one month after the single’s release. Britney has said: “I just know that the direction I’m going in is so good. It’s the best thing I’ve done in a long time.[2]

On May 11, 2016, Sony Music Germany confirmed the release of 'Make Me...'. [3]

On May 12, 2016, it was confirmed that Britney would be debuting her single at the Billboard Music Awards 2016[4], and performing a medley of her other hits.[5]

On May 18, 2016, press announced that the single had been delayed for a later summer release due to production difficulties, leaving fans upset.

On May 30, 2016, rapper G-Eazy official confirmed his appearance on Britney's new single, 'Make Me'.[6]

On June 3, 2016, Britney finished day one of the video shoot for 'Make Me...'. [7]

On July 1, 2016, 'Make Me...' was registered on APRA Music as 'Make Me (Oooh)'. [8]

It was released on July 14, 2016 at midnight and premiered on B97 New Orleans radio.

Music video Edit

Original versionEdit

The original music video was directed by David LaChapelle, who previously directed the video for Spears' 2004 single 'Everytime'. Filming began on June 2, 2016. It was, however, scrapped due to being "too racy" and replaced with a second version. After overwhelmingly negative reactions from fans following the release of the Randee St. Nicholas-directed video, a petition demanding RCA to release LaChapelle's original video was created; the petition described the released video as one that was "not a suitable representation of the song". A month after the official video's release, Spears's manager, Larry Rudolph commented: "It’s really simple. The video just didn’t work [...] because it’s Britney there are all kinds of conspiracies. Nobody is hiding anything."

Current/Official versionEdit

The official music video was directed by Randee St. Nicholas. As described by Daniel Kreps of Rolling Stone, the video "offers a lighthearted, fictionalized look at the audition process to cast Spears' on-screen paramour in the 'Make Me' video. When Spears and her posse aren't giggling through auditions, the singer is performing her track in a brightly lit hallway. G-Eazy also appears to deliver his featured verse via hi-def monitor. The video concludes with Spears screen-testing her would-be costars in a series of steamy sequences."

American Dream version Edit

On September 20, 2016, an alternate version of the video was released through the mobile game Britney Spears: American Dream, which cut out the narrative of the video and solely includes Spears's hall sequences and glamour shots.

TriviaEdit

  • It was produced by English DJ, Burns.

LyricsEdit

[Verse 1: Britney Spears]
Friday
I'm dreaming a mile a minute 'bout somebody
This feeling, I wanna go with it, cause there's no way
We're hiding away from this tonight, oh, this tonight
Can tell you want me
By the way I see you starin' 'cross the room, baby
No shame in the game
Just cut the shit, be honest
Yeah, you know what you gotta do tonight, do tonight

[Pre-Chorus: Britney Spears]
I just want you to make me move
Like it ain't a choice for you, like you got a job to do
Just want you to raise my roof
Something sensational (oh yeah)

[Chorus: Britney Spears]
And make me oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh
And make me oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh

[Verse 2: Britney Spears]
No rules
From the butt of the car, let's take it back to my room
Igniting the heat of the woman; let the sparks fuse
Blowing up to the ceiling, we're burning bright
When we cross the line

[Pre-Chorus: Britney Spears]
Cause you're the flame I can't do without
The fire comes in the sapphire sun
There's no way I'm gonna be fighting this tonight, this tonight

[Pre-Chorus: Britney Spears]
I just want you to make me move
Like it ain't a choice for you, like you got a job to do
Just want you to raise my roof
Something sensational (oh yeah)

[Chorus: Britney Spears (G-Eazy)]
And make me oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh
And make me oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh
Baby, cause you're the spark that won't go out
My heart's on fire but you're a gun
Make me oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh
(Yeah, Eazy)

[Verse 3: G-Eazy]
I don't care if it's a random person or the biggest star
Out in Vegas or little bars
Really not a difference if it's near or far
Listen, here we are; need you
I've always wondered what was off limits
Staring at you til I'm caught in this
Back and forth like this was all tennis
I'm all jealous, you came with someone
But we could tell that there's changes coming
See I could tell that you're a dangerous woman
That means you're speaking my language, come on
Now follow me, let's go
Like Penelope and blow
Well worth the stealing you, it's a felony, yeah I know
That's why they keep on telling me to let go, yeah

[Bridge: G-Eazy]
But I need you and I can take you
All the way and I'm able
To give you something sensational, so let's go, yeah
Said I need you and I can take you
All the way and I'm able
So follow me and I can make you

[Chorus: Britney Spears (G-Eazy)]
And make me oooh (move), oooh, oooh (yeah), oooh
And make me oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh
Baby, cause you're the spark that won't go out
My heart's on fire but you're a gun
Make me oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh
Yeah, you make me oooh
