Britney wasnt ready for an era, she was completely medicated and performed this song like 3 months after its release for the first time, looking completely bloated and unfit.

OT : Ahhh a trendsetter :clap3:

That’s my least favorite FF single but it’s a great song and the video is very good too. Some popgirls wish they’d release quality and bops at the same time, like HIAM !

:heart2:

Too bad for you it did not :ahh:

Despite never being promoted, HIAM debuted at number 1, breaking new records. It was a single for a very short period of time. After one week, the song was #6 on the Hot 100, if I’m remembering correctly.

I remember playing the hell out of it when it was released. The release was mishandled tbh.

Its been 8 years since Britney Spears released the lead single off her 7th studio album Femme Fatale. “Hold it Against Me” also became Spears’s fourth number one single on the Billboard Hot 100 and her second single to debut at the top spot. 

 

Fun facts:

- The song is the 18th song to debut at number one on the Hot 100.

- With “Hold It Against Me”, Spears became only the second artist in history to debut multiple songs at the top spot on the Hot 100, only behind Mariah Carey.

- The song held the record for the highest first week sales numbers with 411,000 sold in its first week up until 2015 when Adele’s “Hello” sold over one million copies. 

- The song holds the record for the highest first day radio spins with 619 spins. 

- The song has sold over three million singles worldwide.

- The music video was VEVO certified in the fall of 2012 having surpassed over 100 million views on YouTube. It currently sits at 123 million views.

It's not one of my favorite Britney songs or favorites of her leads, but it's alright. I really liked it at the time.

She brought this sound to mainstream, she did the **** outta that. The breakdown still gives me chills to this days and this is also one of her best videos.

Among her top 5 songs for sure. The video is amazing. There was so much hype for her back then. Ugh :weeps:

I’m still mad at her make-up artist for ruining every look in that video. What did they have against eyebrows?
