The wait for Britney Spears' first single from her upcoming seventh studio album is over. "Hold It Against Me" has been pushed out to radio and online early. We thought we would have to wait until tonight to hear the new hot hit. On first listen, this is one of the most mature dance pop creations of her career thus far. The opening verse and chorus structure is catchy and then the bridge takes off in electropop glory. The pop music of 2011 has an early shot in the arm here. Whether or not "Hold It Against Me" follows "Womanizer" and "3" to #1 on the pop singles chart, it will quickly take its place among Britney Spears' best singles. Check the song out below.
