Thats because not only its her best single in years but it perhaps could pass as one of her finest singles overall. Its indeed a great pop song.

Happy birthday to "Make me", such a beautiful song.

"Make me" is IMO Britney's best and finest single this decade. :o

"Make me" was such a great pop song, I love that it could be erotic yet melancholic at the same time, there's something seductive yet sad on it, the whole mellow and soft direction was also unexpected for a Britney lead single, it seemed to be more simple, chilling, moody and organic than her recent singles.

Make Me is her best single since If U Seek Amy/3 imo.

It's definitely high in my list of favourite Britney tracks ever. It's such a perfect song. I hate the video but the song itself, is outstanding.

It's a good pop song, but probably my least favorite Glory track and I really didn't need G-Eazy on this.

I really love this song, if it was G-Eazy-less it would've been perfect tbh.

I don't mind the G-Eazy feature!

It's a strong song and a great choice for a lead single
Especially after the BJ debacle

I think G-Eazy part flows very well in the song something that is unusual for these Pop / Rap guests songs. This song is Top-notch seriously.

Regarding the visuals, Like someone else said, I don't think this needed a slutty video tho, and this isn't only an observation to the weak music video we got where she's showing skin and stuff also to the original music video which seemed to be quite S&M, I always found really strange that they wanted to portray such soft and mellow song like that.

It needed a concept video, this was the perfect time to call Jonas Akerlund (the guy that developed such brilliant concept for "Hold it against me") back to direct and create another substancial and artistic music video, and the difference between HIAM-Britney and Glory-Britney is that she now looks in shape, beautiful and totally into it, so a Jonas Akerlund music video in 2016 would've been pure slayage right, left and center. Its such a shame that they couldn't find a director that was actually able to handle and understand a song like "Make me" (I don't think not even her team understood what they had in their hands with this song).

I'm genuinely surprised that a song like this was a Britney Spears lead single.

The video was a mess. The song did not deserve such an atrocious music video. She should've used the original idea tbh.

G Eazy complemented Britney very well. Their vocals were a perfect marriage like the Nelly and Kelly Dilemma for me.

+1 .. It also helped that G-Eazy is really into Britney.

Yes and they looked nice together performing the song at the VMAs, they seemed to have a good low-key kinda pleasant chemistry unlike many collabs
