As much as I love Work Bitch (and I love it a lot) Make Me sucker punched it right out of that spot in my heart. Make Me is miles above Work Bitch and it's gonna be hard topping that with her next lead single.
I highly doubt Make Me would get the praise it does if it wasn't the lead single.
I don't think it was actually released to radio anywhere, was it? Her label released it as a physical single, so it was an actual single. But it appears everywhere it charted it did so after the first week the digital EP came out.
Of course. This, Everytime, Early Morning, Out From Under, Touch Of My Hand, Criminal.
Gorgeous ballads / mids. Not fluff like Don't Let Me Be The Last To Chart..
I was still a kid then and I feel like radio really doesn't tell the full story of Britney's peak, as what is always mentioned. My generation found her music through MTV and it was blasted in malls, media, etc. Pregnant Britney was such a huge moment to all of us who grew up with her.
Right...... I'm 27, I was around for Britney's peak. I literally don't think the song was serviced by her label to radio.
The greatest interlude in pop music tour history. The goosebumps were literally exploding off of my skin during this bit of the concert.
Make Me, for me, is nothing more than okay. I don't think I would listen to it as much if it weren't Britney either. I think my favorites from the album overall would be 'Man on the Moon', 'Change Your Mind', and 'Love Me Down'.
I'm always amazed at how "unpopular" Britney's music was on the radio during the Teen Pop Renaissance yet how ubiquitous and commonplace it seemed to every millennial child at that time. MTV was far more influential in introducing and promoting an artist and copies of CDs were subsequently passed around during recess. Britney undoubtedly had great hits but a good chunk of her music seemed to have been consumed everywhere besides the radio.Yes, what I'm saying is I probably didn't hear the song through radio.
