Listen To The Demo Of Britney Spears’ New Single “Hold It Against Me”

Jan 6th, 2011 // 41 Comments

“Hold It Against Me”, Britney Spears’ first new single since 2009′s “3″, was rumored to debut sometime this month (perhaps even as early as tomorrow), but no need to wait any longer — it’s here! Sort of!

Okay, don’t be too excited — it’s just a demo, and the vocals clearly do not belong to Britney. Still, it’s a pretty hot club number, and with Brit’s cooing and a killer video to boot, this could be the first mega-hit of 2011. Pop below to hear it!

We could have sworn the lead vocals sound like they came from Ke$ha, but it’s actually singer-songwriter Bonnie McKee on the track. In fact, a few references to getting plastered on Jack Daniels, and this banger could feel right at home on K-Dolla’s Cannibal. Hopefully Spears will give it her personal baby-voiced touch so it doesn’t sound like a copycat track. Still, we agree with z100′s TKTK when she said “the hook is just amazing.”

What do you think? Has Brit got another hit on her hands? Or is it too soon to tell?

    I think it’ll be a hit. That’s not to say that I like it–I feel like I’ve heard it already, 10x over in various iterations. I’m just so sick of these kinds of songs. I want melodic music to make a comeback… with real, actual vocals… by people who can really, actually sing.

  2. This is the first time in a while I’ve felt “you know, this is okay, but if Britney Spears sang it it could be great.” So color me excited.

  3. PLEASE! DELETE THIS TOPIC!!!
    We must help Britney with her new single’s release !!!
    Please!

    You must remember, this is a VERY early DEMO of the single that is officially going to be released on Tuesday January 11th. it is not the real thing. lyrics can be added, or taken away, and the beat can also change. NO ONE knows what the final version sounds like right now except of course Britney and her team.

  10. Britney’s release on 1-11-11 is gonna be LEGENDARY!

  11. Angel666

    It”s great!!! But it is very similar to Keshа. Have told that Britney’s song will strongly differ from a demo

  12. BenGray10

    The chorus is good, but the verses are very annoying. I hate it when the syllables don’t match the beat.
    I can’t really say I’m excited b/c I’ve never liked Britney Spears as a musical artist. But still, good luck to her.

  13. A Miley

    So Dr. luke tweeted earlier saying this is super old and it’s gone under major transformation since this was done. No worries yet people, Britney’s version will be AMAZING! I’m really liking the lyrics though :)

  14. jhon

    my god
    cant wait tio hear it
    sound amazing

    I LOVE BRITNEY SO MUCH!! THE QUEEN OF POP IS REALLY BACK!!!

    Imagine this song with her beautiful voice, with your mojo and the finished track!!!! @________@

    It’s GONNA BE HUGE AND SUCESSFULL and it’s gonna be a LEGENDARY release of the year like Kairy Walker said – 1-11-11!

  16. Ivann

    me parese buena msica me gusa mucho!

  17. Ivonne

    britney esta de vuelta es la reina unica ahora si lady gaga bye y la verdadera cansion es aun mejorr este es un demo viejo!

  18. GAGABRIT

    I like it, well the chorus, the rest of the song lyrically is not that good.
    I just don’t like how some people are saying the Queen is back. I am a huge Gaga fan and a Britney fan. Gaga has never said anything bad about Britney for you guys to be causing rivalry between them. Gaga has even stated herself that Britney is the Queen of Pop. Why can’t both of them be on top? Why does one have to be better than the other?

    LA REYNA Y DIOSA DEL POP ESTA DE VUELTA; TE AMOOOOOOO BRITNEY <3

    I don’t understand what the “wow” factor about her is.
    She can’t sing, she can’t play anything, and she doesn’t write her own music.
    She doesn’t even have the decency to sing live for the millions of people who show up at her shows yet everyone gawks at her as if she were a goddess.

    I’m definitely rooting for Lady Gaga to win their little “competition” against each other. That girl is the antithesis of Britney and does everyone a real musician and a decent pop star would do.

    I wish the old days when pop music was melodic and meant something returned. Back when lyrics weren’t about grinding on a dancefloor or having a sex with strangers.

  21. Andy

    I really hope that day comes soon because this is getting ridiculous.

  22. Dewayne Shreffler

    I’m sooo EXCITED about hearing the (Queen Of POP Britney Spears) NEW song “Hold It Against Me” this tuesday! She is Amazing and so beautiful.
    Love you Britney Spears
    -Dewayne- xoxo

  23. If she cant sing why would she sing “You outta know”, and sound good??? answer that please. Okay you cant good bye :)

  24. Love it!! It’ll be hot with Brit’s voice, can’t wait!!! <3 <3 My girl is back at it again with yet another smashing album..just watch!!

  25. john

    boring, already done. shameful… and on her next single could she actually sing without heavy effects. i think she should stop the albums…

  26. Nunya Bizness

    I agree with Daniel. They are both in the pop music industry, so they are competing… SO WHAT?! That doesn’t mean they hate each other. Grow up. Brit and Gaga are both great.

  27. ella es lo mejor del mundo!
    ya escuche el demo, y el de ella sera mucho mejor!
    solo habra que esperar!
    britney te amamos!
    y jamas eso va a cambiar!
    por que vos naciste para hacernos felices!

    she is the best in the world!
    and listen to the demo, and it will be much better!
    you just have to wait!
    britney love you, and that will never change
    that you were born to make us happy!

    我爱布兰妮

    Another dance number… shes definitely on the right track with this.. it’ll follow us into the clubs… Although i am hearing Ke$ha in this song, probably due to the vocals, i hope britney can kill it with a hot new video.. but its been a minute since we heard a britney song..i think itll debut at number 1 on sales…

  34. VR

    OMG she’s very obviously stealing Ke$ha’s sound.

  35. alexander

    LOve it

  36. tom

    Britney managed to make #1 songs with Womanizer & 3 without that much promotion.

    I believe that Hold It Against Me will be a sure hit!
    Brit still has a huge fanbase

  37. aaaaaaaa … This beautiful … will get better with her voice .. it’s Britney Bitch

  38. JME†

    Okay Love the song even though its a DEMO but really Britney when I hear this song it soooo belongs to Ke$ha like when I hear I want to hear Ke$ha not Britney Speared I mean really…

  39. JME†

  40. STEFY
