Album artwork can often cement the legacy of an artist's hard work, and how fans remember that album for generations to come.

We all know the Pink Floyd's iconic The Dark Side Of The Moon artwork, Nirvana's legendary Nevermind shot, and Micheal Jackson's instantly recognizable Thriller cover - but if somebody asked you to describe the album artwork to Britney Spears' 2016 studio album, Glory - could you?

Probably not... because, in all honesty, there's just not much to it.

Spears' ninth studio album may have received mainly positive reviews from critics, but failed to achieve commercial success - despite featuring tracks like 'Make Me...', 'Slumber Party', 'Private Show', 'Clumsy', and 'Do You Wanna Come Over?'.

The original artwork featured a close-up show of Britney taken by Randee St. Nicholas on the set of the 'Make Me...' music video - and in all honesty, it is a little underwhelming.

Here's one fan's tweet from 2016:

There was even a change.org campaign set up urging RCA Records/Sony Music Entertainment to "change the album cover to one that would be a better and more suitable choice for the album".

Now, nearly four years after the album's original release, the cover has been updated.

Thanks to a fan campaign to get Glory to the top of the iTunes charts, Spears announced that the cover had been updated.

Sharing a shot of the new cover with her 24.2 million Instagram followers, Spears captioned the new racy artwork:

"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."

The new artwork was shot by famed photographer David LaChapelle and shows Britney posing seductively in the desert sand, while donning a tiny glistening gold bodysuit and writhing with a giant chain.

Britney recently revealed that she burnt down her gym:

Earlier in the week, the 'Womanizer' singer shared a short video where she thanked her dedicated fans for the surprising placement of the four-year-old album. She said:

"Hi guys, so I'll tell you I just figured out that Glory went to number one on the iTunes charts. I have no idea what happened,' she gushed in a breathless stream. Because of you I'm having the best day ever."

Do you prefer the new album cover?
