She's still got it!

    it was actually in 7 hours… by the time i woke up. i'm so proud of her! i must've listened toit at least 200 times since you posted it yesterday… britneys backkkkk

  3. 3

    It's not really hard to shoot to the top of the iTunes top ten list. It's a new single that no one has. Almost every new single released by a major artist spends a couple days at number one.

    SO FUCKING PROUD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have NEVER waited for ANY artist to drop their music so that I can download at 00:00 but it happened with Hold It Against Me. Brit Brit is not just a musician, she is the face and the recovery of Gen Y! We want to see her do well because she has been through as much as the rest of us. Love you BritBrit, dance to you own rhythms, we will be there right along side you

    She DOESN't have it and that's the sad part. She is so autotuned it's pathetic. A two year old could sing as well. People would no longer know what real music sounds like if it hit them in the face.

    christina aguilera must be pissed ….she cant beg someone to buy her shit these days

    Well the song is amazing, what did you expect??? It's fresh and unique yet current. It's truly an amazing record. Thank goodness Brit's back (we needed good pop music already!!!) :)

    If it's not #1 on Billboard, it's still nothing . . .

  15. 15

    she cant sound so old school she threw in there some dub shes awesome.
    i fucking love this women, fuck lady gaga the princess of pop is back!

  16. 16

    #1 in 16 countries… Who is the QUEEN OF POP? ;)

  17. 17

    True be told I really dont like the song like that I think her single 3 was better

  18. 18

    The song is horrible, and will only appeal to idiots, like Ke$ha fans. Its auto-tuned to DEATH, and the lyrics are PAINFUL to listen to. Wait until Gaga drops her new single, she will blow Britney out of the water.

    Its sad because Britney used to be the shit… now she's just shit. She went away for too long, and this new song is generic. Time to put down the auto-tune, and focus on being on a mom.

    Not a big fan of this song. Is average, at best. Not sure what all the hype is about.

  23. 23

    Re: Gary Garvey – Why does ever have to bring her up and be rude in the process? Christina Aguilera is talented. You don't need to sell millions to be recognized as such.

  24. 24

    hating bitches can stay pressed for all i care, Britney is back and personally, this is the best I've seen and heard from her in years. :D I can't wait for the album and music video.
    The dancing Queen is back. :D

  25. 25

    Re: Michael Brumm – #1 in 16 THIRD World countries. American has-beens and rejects are always huge there.

  26. 26

    Well I guess it makes sense they've rammed this crap all over the internet constantly. I'm guessint they're trying to get a jump on caca's next round of mess. Let's see what happens when caca drops her crap. Her followers seem to be way more hardcore than Zitzit's crowd.

    It's Britney you hateful and judgemental fucktards! LOVES IT, and please don't hold it against me!

  30. 30

    People seriously don't like her go then dang.. trolls.. and it's not auto-tuned.. it a synthesizer on the chorus only that threads the voice.. stfu and p.s. stop bringing up Kei$ha an shit bitch sounds like a robot dude talking..

  31. 31

    I can't comprehend how some people say that the new single is "unique and fresh" are you people deaf? I don't hate Britney and all. (Grew up listening to her) But her new single's just heavily auto-tuned. I wouldn't be surprised if it went 1#… I mean almost all singles that are released in our generation just strikes to the top 10 with ease! I just want music from the 90's & Lady GaGa!
    I'm a huge Lady GaGa fan, but if her new album is heavily auto-tuned. I'd be pissed! >_

    i really don't understand what all the hype is about… there's nothing great about this song at all. lead single? please, britney can do better than this. i miss the old britney. MARK MY WORDS: THIS WILL BE HER LAST ALBUM.

  34. 34

    She's still got it, rabid tone deaf fans.

  35. 35

    It was less than twelve hours.

  36. 36

    Doesn't sound all "auto-tuned" like everyone's saying. Britney's got a nasally sound… always has, always will.

    I like it! Don't "love" it like I was hoping, but it will definately grow on me!
    Only criticism (which a lot of people are saying) is the chorus builds up and is all clubby… and then goes flat too soon :(
    Any nee release from Britney is much appreciated! Can't wait to hear the entire album 3/15/11!

  37. 37

    Re: Gary Garvey – Why the fuck should Christina be pissed? She has more talent than Britney EVER did (then and definitely now). At least she can SING! I have nothing against Brit, but I'll take talent and quality over popularity and quantity any day. :P

  38. Laury says – reply to this


    Well, Britney should be thankful for her very loyal fans who love her and defend her no matter what. Because to anyone else, all this hype is ridiculous. Britney, the Queen of Pop? Puh-leeze. She can't sing live, her voice is always auto-tuned to death on her songs and she is not where she used to be 10 years ago as far as performing goes. Don't get me wrong, I'm rooting for her, I really want her to knock my socks off, but this song is just not doing it for me.

  39. 39

    The song is a rip off from a Bellamy Brothers song.

    Hey wake up, Brit-Brit! We aren't all as dumb as you think we are…

  40. 40

    Re: Kim Alejandro Germanotta – I can't comprehend how your complaining about Britney's single not being "unique and fresh" when I don't know ONE Lady Gaga song that can fit that description. They're both bubblegum dance pop, same shit everyone else is doing.

  41. 41

    why wouldnt she still have it :s !

  42. @v@ says – reply to this


    Ooops, the reigning Queen of Pop did it again.

  43. 43

    Well, of course it's going to top iTunes. It's the only site where you can (legally) download it. It was a great marketing strategy, no doubt.
    I tried to listen to the single (several times) because everyone was raving about it. I'm just not getting the goose bumps, chills, or whatever everyone else is getting from it. To me, it's just OK at best. Definitely not her worst, though. I'm sure I'll be hearing it a lot, though, at the clubs and watching the drag queens do it as a number.
    Regardless, congrats Britney!

  44. 44

    awww thats great! i love her new song, cant wait for her album!!

  45. @v@ says – reply to this


    Re: Eyes Crying Purple Tears – Seconded, but watch Brit sell more albums, again. Come on, tho, Brit has an infectious, niche pop talent. Christina has wicked R & B/soul ability, so it's kind of comparing apples and oranges, imo. Christina was first shoved out there as a pop $tar, when she really had more of a different kind of ability to begin with. Marketing her as pop, and then she grew into torch.

    Perez she went #1 in less than 8 hours. You also forgotto say that broke the record of more plays in the radio with 705 plays in less than an hour, previous was Mariah Carey with 498 plays.
    And more importan, in less than a day Britney is #1 in 16 countries at the same time.

    If Gaga does all that you will make 100 posts about it.

    While I agree with everyone that her song has been autotuned as per usual, Britney has jumped onto the latest craze in electronic music which is dubstep. Although there is al limited amount in the song as compared to a typical song in this genre, it is evident. She made a smart move by incorporating it into her music and linking up with a highly praised dubstep producer. I think that's one of the ways she succeeds in staying current is she markets what's popular at the time and makes it her own, it's so easy to morph Britney into so many areas because her voice is often electronically enhanced. Love her or hate her but she's definitely has stay power which she proves time and time again.

  49. 49

    Who are the so many idiots who buy this kind of trash?. I dont mean about Britney, I mean the song is so bad. Its monotone and boring, its all the same. The only way you could enjoy this pieces of crap is in a disco or pub being very high. Otherwise its a snoozefest. I was expecting something else from Britney, something better honestly and more catchy, this is just a cheap way to get people to download it with the poor lyrics and tune… and wtf with the autotune… can celebs stop it with it!!!!!!!

    In less than 24 hours, Britney Spears snatched back her throne, but did she ever lose it? The dominating pop force has broken barriers today with new single ‘Hold It Against Me’. The Dr. Luke/Max Martin produced cut has dominated the itunes top spot in over 10 countries including the United States.

    It gets even better. The track has smashed the record for the most first day radio spins in history with 705, beating out Mariah Carey’s 498 for ‘Touch My Body’. But the biggest news of all is that she will reportedly perform at the Grammy Awards!

    Re: jesyrene – itunes is huge! So you are wrong babe.

    Any artist loooves when they reach no.1 on iTunes. Beeecause today it is almost as good as billboard or any other Single chart! And how FAST she has reached no.1 in 18 countires. Not been done by anyone! So its bvery big… hun ^_^

  52. 52

    Re: Eyes Crying Purple Tears
    Britney has major talent, in bothe singing and dancing. But Yes Christinas voice is better. Even Britney herself says that in a very cool way: I wish I had a voice like Christinas, but I cant do magic so I will just have too stick with mine. Wich isnt THAT bad anyway.
    Simon Fuller even said - Ofcourse britney´s got tons off talent, she just needs to calm down on some moves and get that voice out. Because she truly is something!
    I could continue on but then this post would be too long :) Know you said you dont have anything against Britney. But I just had to clear this up ^_^
    Britney has an amazing voice that she needs to get back, and she can. She just needs to see a voice coach again. Something she unf ended doing in 2003

  53. 53

    Re: Laury – It is not autotuned. And she can sing live, has proven it many times.
    The song is EPIC and Very much electro sound. She is truly one of the best performers of history. And Wich artist SHOULD NOT BE THANKFUL for their loyal fans? If it where not because of the fans they all would be nothing!
    With over 120 million records sold ww. she can take over as QOP. Madonna now days is the Queen Mother Of PoP. With now no.1 in 20 Countries, she proves she is still IT. If anyone is autotuned it is Kesha, who is nothing but autotune! And almost everyone is using autotune today, it brings a cool epic sound to the songs. Britney has been performing with Madonna and M.J, J.T and more who does not wanna perform with non-live singing artist.

  54. 54

    oh god, not another one. why is everyone jumping on this electro music, it all sounds the same. it doesn't take a genius to get a #1 song these days, it's been proven by every loser like Ke$ha. Britney knows what she's doing, it all sounds the same but it's what it sells and that's all that it matters right.

  55. 55

    Just wait until Britney outshines and outsells Tranny GaGa, then watch Mario try to tear Queen Godney down. Godney is the Queen of pop and that tranny hooker is so OVER!

  56. 56

    iTunes? WTF? Shes # 1 in 14 COUNTRIES and piggy only writes about iTunes? If it was lady gaga he would write about her non stop.

  57. 57

    Re: Betch84 – just wanted to point out that lady gaga's lyrics can be painful at times… like "telephone"…. give me a break. britney has got it and her song lyrics don't have to be deep to make a good song.

  58. 58

    i'ts current, relevant, the break is brand new.
    it's breaking records. end of story.
    Numbers do not lie.

  59. 59

    she can be thankful to her fans. for someone who is not her fan, this song is just crap. but congrats brit brit. waiting for the grammy's.
