hold me closer Britney spears Britney Spears officially returned to music just a few months after being released from a nearly 14-year conservatorship, and boy, are we living. The Princess of Pop hasn’t released any new music since her 2016 album Glory, and “Hold Me Closer” is a disco-infused remake of a few of Elton John’s songs.

hold me closer Britney spears sings the line, “Hold me closer, small dancer/Count the headlights on the highway,” on the song, which combines “The One,” “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart,” and “Tiny Dancer” by Elton John into a dance-floor-ready bop. Lay me down with some linens; you had a busy day.

Before Spears breaks out with “Tiny Dancer” in the chorus, the two icons sing “The One” together over a powerful dance beat at the beginning of the song. improvisations from John and

Prior to contacting Spears with the notion of turning the record into a collaboration, John originally wrote the single as a solo piece. According to a news statement, Spears “quickly said yes.”

John exclaimed, “I am overjoyed to have gotten the opportunity to work with Britney Spears. She is a true icon and one of the greatest pop stars of all time, and she sounds fantastic on this album. I adore her a lot and am proud of what we’ve accomplished together.

Spears posted a video of herself celebrating the song’s success in 40 different nations on Friday morning. Holy crap! In the video, Spears uses her best British accent to say. “I’m going to have the best day of my life,”

Prior to the song’s release, Spears expressed her excitement for it, stating that collaborating with John was “a big thing to me.” It’s pretty wonderful that I’m performing with one of the most iconic men of our time, she wrote in a tweet. I feel a little overwhelmed.

Spears’ attorney Mathew Rosengart commended the pop queen for her triumphant return to the music industry after years of legal issues in a statement to Rolling Stone. “I was flooded with questions about what Britney would do after our arduous legal fights, our triumph in removing her father as conservator, and the termination of the conservatorship last year. For the first time in 13 years, that is up to one person and one person only: Britney, was my straightforward reaction.

A basic rocket emoji and a red rose, which are symbols used by John and Spears, respectively, are featured as the artwork for the track, which John announced earlier this month. Days earlier, Page Six had reported that the two had been collaborating in the studio. In the end, John played the song for diners at a restaurant by the seaside on Thursday at a meal in Cannes.

Before the song’s official release, there were allegedly further leaks on Twitter. Spears stan account @BritneyLawArmy tweeted, “Please respect artists and the hard work they put into making new music by not leaking songs and/or sharing tracks released by others.”


According to the insider, Britney is a tremendous perfectionist when it comes to her music, so until she believes the song is completely done, she won’t release it. But once she provides her final clearance, everything is ready to move forward quickly.

She had “a lot of creative control” in creating the tune, which she did not have when under her conservatorship, the source continued. The source told Hollywood Life that the actress was “simply thrilled that she’s been able to have her say in each draught of it.” She is anxious for its release, but she and her audience genuinely believe that this is one of her best recordings to date.
