Britney Spears, “Hold It Against Me” (Lyrics + MP3)

10 Jan

New Ms. Spears. Produced by Dr. Luke and Max Martin — Brit-Brit’s money spends well — this is “Hold It Against Me,” and should be the first single from Britney’s as-yet-untitled seventh studio album.

The beat throbs with some heavy dubstep bass and synth work as Britney coos in a potential hook-up’s ear on the floor, but it ultimately feels more overwhelming than impressive; the sum is less than the parts, though there are great moments in the chopping of “now” in the bridge and the chiming keys in the first half of the hook. And “Hey, over there / Please look at me” is certain to get lampooned. For a woman who will be turning 30 (!) this year, Britney sure sounds locked into a mid-twenties “I’m gonna PARTY!” mode. I’m not sure that’s going to work. (What will? The absence of any gendered talk, which makes this as universal as a dance track should be.)

Lyrics

Hey, over there
Please forgive me
If I’m comin’ on too strong
Hate to stare
But you’re winnin’
And they’re playin’ my favorite song
So come ‘ere
A little closer
Wanna whisper in your ear
Make it clear
A little question
Wanna know just how you feel

If I said my heart was beating loud
If we could escape the crowd somehow
If I said I want your body now
Would you hold it against me?

‘Cause you feel like paradise
And I need a vacation tonight
So if I said I want your body now
Would you hold it against me?

Hey, you might think
That I’m crazy
But you know I’m just your type
I might be
A little hazy
But you just cannot deny
There’s a spark
In between us
When we’re dancin’ on the floor
I want more
Wanna see it
So I’m askin’ you tonight

If I said my heart was beating loud
If we could escape the crowd somehow
If I said I want your body now
Would you hold it against me?

‘Cause you feel like paradise
And I need a vacation tonight
So if I said I want your body now
Would you hold it against me?

If I said I want your body
Would you hold it against me?

Yeah
Oh

Gimme something good
Don’t wanna wait, I want it now
(Now-nah-now-now)
Pop it like a hood
And show me how you work it out

(If I said my heart was beating loud)
If I said I want your body now
Would you hold it against me?

If I said my heart was beating loud
If we could escape the crowd somehow
If I said I want your body now
Would you hold it against me?

‘Cause you feel like paradise
And I need a vacation tonight
So if I said I want your body now
Would you hold it against me?

    Frequently, a full day would be required to make the journey, discuss
    the company affairs and travel back home without really gaining much information.
    This was because until the new system information of employers and employees was held regionally.
    Typically, a professional accountant online works individually without
    leaving his or her house yet is hired and is capable of delivering the best results after completing the transactions on the web.

    It is a classic case of spending too much on the wrong property.
    Our proposal was to add a new second floor, which would capture a
    sweeping view over the Fraser River and an extension to
    the rear with basement. Aside from do-it-yourself projects,
    you can also consider some renovations in its structure.
