    Britney Spears heats up the dance floor like never before with her brand new single, "Hold It Against Me."

    In fact, "Hold It Against Me" is one of Britney's catchiest club bangers yet. She serenely croons the track's verse over a brilliantly bouncy beat that swells from futuristic to funky. The single's pre-chorus reaches heights of pure pop ecstasy as lilting synths lift Britney's voice vibrantly. Pop's ultimate starlet embraces her dance influences more than ever, perfectly delivering an angelic refrain over a propulsive backdrop of potent production from Max Martin and Dr. Luke. The song proudly stands alongside Britney classics like "Womanizer," "Gimme More," and "Toxic," but there's a refined ethereal elegance to it that sees Britney stepping into new territory and pushing the boundaries of dance pop once more.

    She hits new levels of sexiness cooing, "If I said I want your body, would you hold it against me?" mid-song. It's the hottest pop track of the year, and it signals another new age for one of its brightest stars. Hold this track tight for the night of your life…

    Available Tuesday January 11th at Midnight on iTunes and Radio (Tonight!), the song perfectly previews what's to come on Britney's as-yet-untitled seventh studio album due this March. "Hold It Against Me" couldn't come at a better time, and it's bound to be in everyone's head within a day.

    Welcome back Britney…
