Britney Spears makes her stunning return with a dance floor gem Hold Me Closer in a new collab with Elton John.
We all knew Britney could produce a banger for the floor, but who knew Elton John’s songs were so freaking perfect for the dance floor? Having recently teamed up with Dua Lipa, and PNAU, with Cold Heart, The iconic piano man is paving the way for a series of spectacular dance floor anthems.
Hold Me Closer is the perfect song/collab to welcome Britney back to the airwaves. The pop singer’s vocals are steeped in maturity, and depth, engaging the listener to move with through all of the emotions that Elton John’s music is famous for. Hold Me Closer has a lot of depth and feeling to it, encapsulating the feeling of being a free spirit, ocean, sand, and clubs. The lyrics ‘A spirit born of earth and water’ nail it to a T.
A day before the release of Hold Me Closer Britney closed her Instagram account and took to Twitter to share her excitement for the single, which dropped today.
“Okie dokie … my first song in 6 years !!!! It’s pretty d— cool that I’m singing with one of the most classic men of our time … @eltonofficial,” she tweeted. “I’m kinda overwhelmed… it’s a big deal to me !!!”
“I’m learning every day is a clean slate to try and be a better person and do what makes me happy … yes I choose happiness today,” the singer said alongside the announcement. “I tell myself every day to let go of the hurt bitterness and try to forgive myself and others to what may have been hurtful.”
“I’m meditating more and learning my space is valuable and precious!!!” she wrote. “I’m learning every day is a clean slate to try and be a better person and do what makes me happy … yes, I choose happiness today.”
