Britney showed what to expect from the album with lead single

'Make Me' featuring superstar rapper G-Eazy on July 15.

The racy track follows a saucy storyline with lyrics referring to a steamy sex session.

Britney sings: ''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.

The mother of two - who has sons Jayden, nine, and Sean, 10, with her ex-husband Kevin Federline - recently revealed the new record will focus on what it's like being a hopeless romantic.

She admitted: ''Unfortunately, I am a hopeless romantic.

''I've been through horrible relationships, but unfortunately I still believe in love and I think you should protect your heart and stuff like that, but I am a hopeless romantic. I believe in love.''
