On the song, Spears repeatedly asks what the song's title implies. The singer offers several reasons why her lover should come over ("Nobody should be alone if they don't have to be") and options ("I could get into that kissin' and touchin'/Or we could be good and do next to nothin'").
The song features writing credits from Julia Michaels and Justin Tranter, a pop songwriting duo who have penned hits for DNCE, Hailee Steinfeld and Selena Gomez. Mattman & Robin produced the track.
On August 28th, Spears will perform at the MTV Video Music Awards with G-Eazy. Glory will debut in full via Apple Music two days before her appearance at the show where she'll perform "Make Me."
