EDITORS’ NOTES

On her ninth album, Britney Spears sounds happy to have settled into her status as a grande dame of forward-thinking pop. Downtempo offerings like the gauzy come-on “Make Me...,” the reggae-inflected Tinashe duet “Slumber Party,” and the cooing “Man On the Moon” put Spears’ sensual side on full display. On the wide-eyed, bouncy “Clumsy,” the swaggering “Do You Wanna Come Over?,” and the vampy “What You Need,” she gets playful over booming beats.
