After days of speculation and a churning rumor mill, Britney Spears has come forth to set the record straight about her upcoming single, “Hold It Against Me.” Produced by Dr. Luke and Max Martin, the high-energy tune, a demo of which surfaced on the Internet on Thursday, is set to hit airwaves on Tuesday, she tweeted.
“Heard an early demo of my new single leaked. If u think that’s good, wait til you hear the real one Tuesday,” Spears wrote on Twitter Thursday night. She also posted the track’s artwork, a close-up of the pop princess’ face partially covered by her blond locks.
“Hold It Against Me” is the lead single from Britney’s currently untitled new album , dropping in March.
In the leaked demo of the scorching club track, singer/songwriter Bonnie McKee sings Spears’ part. She proclaims her lust for a person while surrounded by a crowd of people. “If I feel my heart was beating loud/ If we could escape the crowd somehow/ If I said I want your body now/ Would you hold it against me?/ ’Cause you feel like paradise/ And I need a vacation tonight/ If I said I want your body now/ Would you hold it against me?” she sings over a pulsating bass.
The track’s producer cautioned that the demo is a very early version of the song. “That version of hold it against me is really really old… it don’t sound like that anymore… it’s WAY better :-p,” Dr. Luke tweeted.
