[artist id="501686"]Britney Spears[/artist] continues to tease fans with seconds-long previews of her forthcoming video "Hold It Against Me," and the offering on Saturday (February 12) was another lightning-quick snapshot of the vampy visual.
In the seven-second preview, a cache of professional studio lighting flashes on surrounding an empty, circular, milk-white platform. Suddenly, Britney appears on the platform amid the bevy of lights in red hot pants, heels and a white top, her blonde hair falling at her shoulders and her feet apart, looking ready to groove. A team of dancers in all-white ensembles flank the pop diva in a similar stance, and with a similar intensity, looking ready to rock it.
The entire video for Spears' Femme Fatale lead single will premiere on MTV on February 17 at 9:56 p.m. ET, just before a spankin' new episode of "Jersey Shore." The video will also simultaneously premiere on MTV.com. In addition to exciting fans with her quick video previews, the clip's choreographer, Brian Friedman, told MTV News that Spears is "definitely setting the bar" with "Hold It Against Me."
"She's showing that you have to push it as an artist: that you can't just settle, that you can't be calm with your choreography, that you have to make a statement," he explained. "There's so many people out there competing in this world to be the queen of pop, and she's definitely claiming her throne."
Friedman also added that even with a slew of memorable videos under her belt, the megastar is still trying to push the envelope with her latest visual.
"Artistically, this video I think surpasses a lot of her other videos," he teased. "So many of her videos are iconic, though. You look at 'Toxic' and you look at 'Slave,' even 'Oops ... I Did It Again': People are gonna remember those videos forever. [In] '... Baby One More Time,' she made school-girl outfits relevant and so popular. This video is artistically a masterpiece, and I don't think that Britney has pushed the envelope in this way ever in any of her videos."
