Will You Be Buying? Britney Spears’ ‘Glory’

Published: Friday 26th Aug 2016 by Rashad
britney spears glory win competition thatgrapejuice

While many-a-Britney Spears fan will point to the singer’s lengthy catalog of hits as reason why she has “nothing to prove,” 2016’s reality – nearly 20 years into her storied career – spells of quite the contrary.

At one time the diva, even at her worst and most “absent,” was still able to shift units on the strength of her name alone.  2013’s ‘Britney Jean’ brought evidence of the opposite, delivering with it the first time the stageblazer rightfully missed the top of the Billboard 200 on the premiere week of an album release (see:  Eagles/Billboard drama during ‘Blackout’ era).  Granted, most will defend the misstep by citing her Vegas residency as reason it was not properly promoted, but others took the failure as indication her popularity had finally begun waning.

Fast forward to 2016, post her history-making run in Las Vegas and a redemptive Billboard Awards performance, “forgiveness” in the court of public opinion may have very well been granted if critical response to the singer’s 9th album, ‘Glory’ (in stores today), is anything to judge by.

Based on the set’s first releases – ‘Make Me’ (featuring G-Eazy), ‘Private Show,’ ‘Clumsy,’ and ‘Do You Wanna Come Over’ – some worried the pop diva’s nonary effort was set to crash and burn.  However, upon the set’s full unveiling early this morning, critics are singing quite a different tune – some even citing it as her best effort since 2007’s underrated, game changing ‘Blackout’:

As the positive reviews come rolling in, we won’t know until tomorrow what the predicted commercial response will be.  What we want to know is if you – That Grape Juice faithful – will be joining the number of critics singing the singer’s praises.  In other words:

P.S.  We definitely know two people who won’t have to answer the question above as they’ve been deemed the winners of That Grape Juice’s ‘Glory’ competition.  Congratulations to:

C.D. Hale of Dallas, TX

    Um, no.

    • LAlaLAla LOVE ME August 26, 2016

      i dL’d the leak and kept my pre-order cuz the album was HAWT and TGJ hated on it the most so you know it was fire and had to be part of my collection. keep it locked on TGJ where a hateful post on BRIT BRIT means she’s doing great 🙂

      • Truth(yaaasss honey) August 26, 2016

        Gorl hush

      • P August 27, 2016

        She has 2 diamond albums.
        Something Beyonce, Adele, Rihanna, Ariana, Selena or Justin Bieber yet to achieve.
        All arguments below will be irrelevant immediately. 🙂


    • Amy August 26, 2016

      This is definitely one of the best albums of this decade. Like Blackout, personally I love this album more than Blackout.
      The production, vocals and melodies are beyond amazing which being lacked in her previous album Britney Jean.
      I heard most people are praising this album because it’s different and something you don’t expect Britney could deliver.
      This album is her highest Metacritic score. Insane!
      Good job Brit Brit.

      • Amy August 26, 2016

        If you have some guts, go listen to Liar, Slumber Party, Just Luv Me, Better and Coupure Électrique.
        These songs are truly amazing and I’m sure they will be released as Singles out of this album.

        Very unexpected from her after 20 years into this career.

      • JKC August 26, 2016

        Yeahh! dont forget Man On The Moon.
        omg i love her. queeennnnnnnnnnnn

      • Amarie Fans August 26, 2016

        This album is perfection.
        Different side of Britney, who needs same old Beyonce with her recycle and non-iconic sounds? LOL

    • Jessica August 26, 2016

      Yes! amazing album

    • ririwannaslayvma August 26, 2016

      Get my $14 for this! epic

    • vivian August 26, 2016

      the French song is super sexayyy!
      i cant believe britney sings that. bwahahaha

    • Britney who? August 26, 2016

      This is her best album and same par with Blackout and In The Zone. F***** mindblowing.

  2. Angel candice August 26, 2016

    Nah. I’m saving for b7

    • Erik August 26, 2016

      Your saving for a $20 album??…Damn, OK.

      • candice August 26, 2016

        hey erika, well opposed to you i don’t suck for money

    • Erik August 26, 2016

      I don’t get down like that, I work hard for mine. However, whatever TF you do for yours clearly isn’t working.

      • Angel candice August 26, 2016

        It’s not the topic. Next.

    • Caleb August 26, 2016

      It takes you 2-3 years to save up $14-$17?

  3. BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 August 26, 2016

    No mam Pam!

  4. pat August 26, 2016

    no way she should’ve flopped before 35…but i wish her the best

  5. OQRAM August 26, 2016

    I’d sooner by Polka-edition KidzBop than something from Britney Spears. Her music is cheesy beyond words and her singing voice is just flatout ugly-sounding. It would be different if she made good music despite her bad voice (i.e. Bob Dylan, Macy Gray)…or if her music was bad, but was a good singer (i.e Jennifer Hudson, Leona Lewis.) But I can’t reconcile both of those fatalities. So, no…Britney wouldn’t get any coin from me.

    • OQRAM August 26, 2016


    • Bee August 26, 2016

      You have to listen first before judging h**

      • OQRAM August 26, 2016

        No I don’t. Britney has been around for nearly 20 years. I’ve seen and heard enough of what she does to get the general gist of her. I don’t need to hear this before judging it, because it’s pretty safe to assume that it’s not going to be a radical enough of a deviation from what she’s always done – which I’ve never been impressed by. I’m simply not a fan of hers or what she brings to the table.

    • Johnny Gill Nicole Scherzinger Brian McKnight August 26, 2016

      In what world is Jennifer Hudson’s music “bad?”

      Her music >>>> beyonce’s music.

  6. Bee August 26, 2016

    Nobody can’t win cause other fan bases don’t want to listen just because it’s not their fav, what happen to just enjoying the music!! So I’m just going to do the same when caca and h** release, its a petty notion but you got to do anything to keep other stans from winning

    • wrosy3 August 26, 2016

      Britney cannot sing and really cannot sing white privileged at best the public feeling sorry for her and she moves slow on stage with no energy she cannot even lipsinc that good its sad to watch

      • MovieAmi August 26, 2016

        Hmmm. Now what kind of “privileged” is allowing Rihanna to get away with being as bad a singer as Brit?

      • SMH August 26, 2016

        Um, Rihanna isn’t 10 years past her expiration date.

      • wrosy3 August 26, 2016

        Rih can sing and do not need to lipsinc her voice is unique Rih get bash dragged by people especially the black community they never support Rih unlike Britney is supported by her white people Rih has built her fan base by herself over the years rih broke records with the help of the Navy everyone wrote rih off period but rih rih climb her way to the top without any mother fuckers supporting her now they trying to be her friend you go rih

  7. grapejuicefan August 26, 2016

    It’s good

  8. Mark111?️?️?️?️?️?️?️?️?️?️?️?️?️?️?️?️?️?️?️?️?️?️ August 26, 2016

    The only album I both is year was a physical copy of Anti. That’s after streaming like crazy and her & Samsung buying me a digital copy. I just wanted something great for that useless CD player in my car.
    As for British, I stream about the first 4 songs so far. Just Love Me is good, but I was never a Britney Spears ALBUM listener, I always liked the singles and a few album tracks here and there.

  9. truthtea August 26, 2016

    I listened to it, not in its entirety, and I’m impressed but her vocals make it hard to enjoy it.

  10. Msdan August 26, 2016

    I streamed it today and its surprisingly amazing. I’m definitely going to buy it.

  11. Mother August 26, 2016


  12. #JACKIE August 26, 2016

    The polls on here never work, but no I will not be purchasing or listening to her album.

    • QueenBritney August 26, 2016

      Suh, you mad because Ciara can never seem to shift more than 30k? LMAO Girl, I would be mad too

      • #JACKIE August 26, 2016

        Why would I be mad at a mentally challenged, stiff, untalented ass bimbo? *sprays Raid* BYE roach and take Zombney with you.

      • Johnny Gill Nicole Scherzinger Brian McKnight August 26, 2016

        Well at least ciara uses her real voice, even if it isn’t that great. And at least ciara has a few good songs throughout her discog. At least ciara has some sort of talent. s****** is about as talented as a cardboard box. The b**** about as interesting as a cockroach. She offers nothing to music. How do we still let this girl get a pass doing a career that she can’t even f****** do herself? The b**** lipsyncs and the dumbass even f**** that up. She messes up everything she does. The world has no use for s******.

    • QueenBritney August 26, 2016

      Chile a pressed Ciara fan. Its only 30 of yall in the flop squad, and yall always coming for the BIG ARTIST, LMAO! Ciara will NEVER reach Britneys stardom. She can barely book stages,sing, keep a man. Her moves and stage costumes are dated just like her WIGS.NOW BYE WIG…

      • #JACKIE August 26, 2016

        F*** Britney’s level. She has NO TALENT. No one is pressed over her Prozac’d ass.

      • Johnny Gill Nicole Scherzinger Brian McKnight August 26, 2016

        Well Ciara can still sing much better than shitttney smears

    • QueenBritney August 26, 2016

      But sis, what talent does Ciara have? Back bends, and popping v***** isn’t talent sis!!! What is talent sis? Selling K-Swiss, and chap sticks? Let me know queen!

      • K August 26, 2016

        Who is Ciara btw?
        Seriously I dont know her.

      • Johnny Gill Nicole Scherzinger Brian McKnight August 26, 2016

        What talent ddoes shitny have?

    • Johnny Gill Nicole Scherzinger Brian McKnight August 26, 2016

      *s*******, it censored it out

  13. Stephy August 26, 2016

    No. My coins are going towards Motha Barbra’s album.

  14. Indie August 26, 2016

    Best Britney album since Blackout and possibly get best work to date as a body of work, The reviews are going to be amazing and I think thats what’s going to make Glory push through the fact that the work is solid! The Make Me video controversy slowed things down a little, but the album is 10/10

    • Mr.StLaurent August 26, 2016

      Best album since Blackout.

    • FC/JC August 26, 2016

      The Devil Is A LIAR, Femme Fatale was a pop gem!

  15. Rihboy August 26, 2016

    Already did! She has so many hits on this album. Better, slumber party, love me down, liar!

    • QueenBritney August 26, 2016

      Better is a BOP! Do you here me? I’m 8 counting down Hunni!

  16. Nikko August 26, 2016

    Got it!!! 10stars!!

  17. FC/JC August 26, 2016

    Absolutely NOT… Femme Fatale is better

  18. FC/JC August 26, 2016

    I’ve not purchased 1 album this year, NOT ONE!

    • FC/JC August 26, 2016

      I plan on buying Sevyn Streeter Album though

      • QueenBritney August 26, 2016

        Who is that? Chris Browns background singer right?

      • SMH August 26, 2016

        Who is Chris Brown?

      • QueenBritney August 26, 2016

        No. Who is Sevyn Streeter? Never heard of her.

      • SMH August 26, 2016

        Chris Brown….oh yeah, that’s right. Usher’s butler.

  19. orangeyougladIdidntsaybanana August 26, 2016

    I have never been into Britney Spears but I really like this album and I don’t know how to process this ?

  20. lolhart August 26, 2016

    The critics can rave all they want. The album will drop be a moderate success at best. Even Blackout which her fans think is akin to Like a Prayer or Thriller only shifted average numbers.

    • Bee August 26, 2016

      I thought it was quality over quantity not the other way around ?

      • lolhart August 26, 2016

        Like a Prayer and Thriller were huge sellers and critically acclaimed. That’s why I mentioned them. Britney will never have that classic album like the greats.

    • P August 27, 2016

      but she has an album which sold over 30M. Your point?

  21. LOL August 26, 2016


    • QueenBritney August 26, 2016

      Aww, the predictions say 150-175k.Stay mad queen! Lol

    • P August 27, 2016

      Lolhart, dont be paranoid.

  22. Sasha Fierce Representative August 26, 2016

    Nope. I like singers that can actually sing.

  23. The Kpop Guy, Matt~ August 26, 2016

    Gaga will block her like she did in 2013

    • Caleb August 26, 2016

      Gaga didn’t block s*** in 2013 but her own career.

      • Nikko August 26, 2016

        Lmfao!!!! ??

    • P August 27, 2016

      dont be defensive

  24. Kyle August 26, 2016

    Yess! Of course I will be buying. Physical & Digital Copy. Album is hot. Better, Love Me Down & Liar are my favorites! Album of the year!! Gonna be #1 !!!

  25. Kyle August 26, 2016

    Queen Brit!!

  26. Lake Erie August 26, 2016

    Well I listened to half the album today… It sounds way better than the “Britney Jean” album… This album has a more authentic vesatile sound vs the “Jean” album sounded like something TOO computerized… can’t explain it but I only like 1 song off of it anyways..

  27. Ropeburn August 26, 2016

    I have NEVER been a Britney fan but I have to admit this album is damn good. I’ve been listening to the leak all weeklong and now I’m gonna go give Brit some coins and purchase the official version. “Slumber Party” and “Change Your Mind” slay!!!

  28. Royalkev August 26, 2016

    This album ain’t touching Blackout! That remains Brit’s most solid album, but it does feel like a lot of effort when into making this album good sonically (as a whole). From what I heard I like: ‘Slumber Party’, ‘Love Me Down’, ‘Liar’ and ‘Better’! ‘Do You Wanna Come Over’ can grown on me! I’d give it 3/5 stars!

  29. COOKIE LYIN’ August 26, 2016

    I bought Glory. I also bought Lemonade, and Anti. Nothing wrong with variety. As far as I am concerned, these women all deserve to win.

    • Mr.StLaurent August 26, 2016

      Same Here.
      Celine Dion also release a french album today.

  30. Johnny Gill Nicole Scherzinger Brian McKnight August 26, 2016

    Fck no I won’t be buying that pile of s*** by that no-talent having piece of trash “artist”

  31. Amy August 26, 2016

    This is definitely one of the best albums of this decade. Like Blackout, personally I love this album more than Blackout.
    The production, vocals and melodies are beyond amazing which being lacked in her previous album Britney Jean.
    I heard most people are praising this album because it’s different and something you don’t expect Britney could deliver.
    Good job Brit Brit.

    • Johnny Gill Nicole Scherzinger Brian McKnight August 26, 2016

      Shitny? Vocals? Amazing? Shitny? Vocals? Hahaha

      • P August 27, 2016

        dont be defensive.

  32. Jessica August 26, 2016

    If Im Dancing is viral on twitter. hahah

  33. Johnny Gill Nicole Scherzinger Brian McKnight August 26, 2016

    Shitny spears is a certified piece of trash.

    Maybe if I was a 14 year old white girl, I’d buy it.

  34. Nice Nowd Reddish tran ivy blobukz Need UK timely Ukuno eremixi August 27, 2016
