World Premiere: Listen To Britney Spears’ Lead B9 Single “Make Me”

Britney Spears will make you oooh on her new Burns-produced song “Make Me.”

She knows she shouldn’t have kept you waiting, but it’s here now.

If you’re in the Britney Army, you’ve paid your dues… and then some. In May, fans received word the pop princess’ new single would premiere during a live performance at the Billboard Music Awards, but at the eleventh hour, supposed production delays forced Brit to rethink her rollout – instead she rocked a medley of hits lifted from the Las Vegas Piece Of Me residency. Naturally, the “Born To Make You Happy” singer rocked it, but it wasn’t entirely what fans wanted.

From there, it was weekly updates from anonymous sources claiming to have insider information as to when “Make Me” would officially drop. If it wasn’t for Britney’s participation at the music video shoot, we’d still be in the dark. It was only until today had Britney confirmed the song’s existence:

Justin Tranter and Julia Michaels (Justin Bieber “Sorry,” Selena Gomez “Revival”) are several of the song’s co-writers. “Nobody ever talks about Britney as a writer and she’s f**king great, like insane,” Tranter recently said of Britney. “Her concepts were bold and smart and very left of centre, in a good way,” he said. “Melodically, she has melodies for days. How come no one mentions that this girl can write the f**k out of a song?”

Back in February, Britney’s longtime manager Larry Rudolph warned fans they should expect to see a new side to Britney. “The last few albums have been pretty straightforward pop. This is different,” he affirmed. “This is almost like a Britney meets The Weeknd.”

Burns never publicly described the song, but admitted it was “crazy for someone like me” to work with someone of her magnitude “because she’s such a massive legend.” He added: “She’s this crazy entity [with a] huge, ridiculous fan base. She’s been doing it for so long, since she was so young. So it’s such a privilege for a producer like me to meet someone of that stature. I’m excited by it. I’m just glad to be able to be doing it right now.”

“Make Me” is bouncy, breathy and sexy – everything we know and love Britney Spears to embody in her music. Typically she hands over a booty shaking club tune, but this time around is different. This time around, Britney’s pushing herself to deliver her greatest release yet.

“It’s a little melodic, a little more not so poppy,” Brit said last month of what will be her ninth studio album. “It’s kind of chill. Very chill.”

Expect that later this year. In the mean time, play and repeat:

[Verse 1: Britney Spears]
Surrounded
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 sh!t, 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 in “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
