Whether it’s boredom caused by the pandemic lockdown, or simply a slavish devotion to their idols, fans of various pop divas have been keeping themselves busy lately with a new kind of initiative. Fans across the globe have been launching campaigns on various social media platforms to get their favorite singers’ less successful albums to the top of the download charts, years after the albums have initially been released. First it was Mariah Carey’s turn, her 2008 album lambs peaked charts in late April. Up next was Madonna, who’s devotees took the same approach with the 1994’s album Bedtime Stories.
This time it was Britney Spears’ turn. Her faithful following rallied to get the album Glory, originally released in 2006, to the top the iTunes charts. The blonde diva thanked her fans by releasing a video message acknowledging the strange feat of the resurgence of a years-old album and said, “I have no idea what happened, but because of you, I’m having the best day ever.”
So how good a day does she actually mean? Well, apparently good enough to decide that her fans deserved a treat — and push sales of the dormant album further at the same time. Britney switched the official cover art of the album. Fans have always hated the original cover that was presented 4 years ago. Finally the dull head shot of the original cover is no more, and in its place we are treated with a completely new, provocative image.
The new cover takes a whole different approach. We can see the sexy singer lounging in the desert in a kinky way. Surrounded by chains and not afraid to show some skin, Britney is seductively squirming her hot body and it looks like she’s about to orgasm. Yep, this cover is classic Britney!
“You asked for a new Glory cover and since it went to number one we had to make it happen. Couldn’t have done it without you all.”
Needless to say, fans were besides themselves with the new photo from the hands of Dave LaChappelle, a photographer known for his artistic as well as kinky approach. Dave has worked before with Britney in her early days, but his ideas were occasionally rejected or censored. The new nude shot is actually said to be the image that was originally planned for the album, but since Britney was facing some public hardships at the time, it was decided that something less controversial would be a safer direction, and the photo got scrapped.
Regarding the switch sources say that “she just kinda did it on her own” to thank her fans for their support. Glory was critically praised at the time, but commercially it was a disappointment.
Britney later teased that if “fans wanted more updated, explicit covers”, they knew “what to do”.
