Glory is the ninth studio album from American singer Britney Spears. It was released on August 26, 2016, by RCA Records. After renewing her contract with RCA, Spears began work on the album in 2014. Lacking a deadline for completion, she continued work into 2015 and 2016, which, according to Spears, provided her with the opportunity to create one of her favourite albums in her catalogue.
Glory received positive reviews from music critics, who praised Spears’s vocal performance on the album and called it her most involved and engaged record in over a decade. The album was also included on year-end lists of best albums by several publications. The album debuted at number three on the US Billboard 200, moving 111,000 album-equivalent units in its first week, with 88,000 coming from pure album sales. The album topped the charts in Czech Republic, Ireland, Italy and also peaked within the top 10 of charts in another 20 countries.
“Make Me…” was released as the lead single for the record on July 15, 2016. The single debuted and peaked at number 17 on the US Billboard Hot 100. “Slumber Party” was released as the second and final single and peaked at number 86 on the US Billboard Hot 100. Glory was further promoted with three promotional singles—”Private Show”, “Clumsy”, and “Do You Wanna Come Over?”—which premiered weeks prior to the album’s debut. Spears promoted the album with television appearances and televised performances, including the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards.
In May 2020, following a fan campaign for the album, an alternate cover—featuring Spears in a gold bathing suit in the middle of the desert—was uploaded to streaming services for the standard edition of the album.
On May 28, 2020, Spears announced that “Mood Ring” would be released worldwide on all streaming and download platforms the next day. Subtitled “By Demand”, the song was released as an additional gift to her fans for supporting Glory. It has ranked number 1 in several countries, including the United States and France on iTunes.
