Her best song. Her best video. It could have been huge,hype around Britney was huge after 2010 break. To bad she wasn't in right state of mind when HIAM was realeased,and refused to promote it. Delayed mv and 300 teasers killed the song. Plus the fact she went fishing instead of promoting it was :rip:

It was a nice song but had no legs. I would have loved if Britney were actually in it and promoted it. Would have loved if the song's structure and lyrics were slightly different. 

 

Queen of bringing dubstep to the mainstream! :jonny5:

A tragic lead single, totally forgotten with literally zero longevity. Did nothing to the era.

“Hold It Against Me” was the 99th number one song on the Billboard Hot 100.

That doesn’t sound right at all though like... not even remotely, especially when Billboard itself said Born This Way was the 1,000th #1 on the Hot 100.

 

That aside, it’s a fun song with a fun video. Femme Fatale isn’t my favorite Britney album, but the singles do go off in the club.
