Review

Hold It Against Me, single petama dari album ketujuh Britney Spears yang akan rilis di bulan maret ini. Masih dengan tim lama Max Martin dan Dr. Luke (Baby One More Time, Oops… I Did It Again, If U Seek Amy). Seperti hal nya single hits 3, Womanizer, Gimme More, lagu Hold It Against me ini tipikal tipe-tipe lagu dance hits dengan lirik menggoda/seductive “If I said I want your body now/ Would you hold it against me?” serta “You feel like paradise and I need a vacation tonight“.

Dengan ramainya tipe musik serupa ini seperti pada lagu We R Who We R (Ke$ha), California Gurls (Katy Perry) dan Poker Face (Lady Gaga), lagu Britney kali ini terasa lebih edgy dan dark dari lagu-lagunya sebelum ini. Dengan beat synth ala Euro Rave Dance tahun 90an, dentuman bass, dan pola lagu yang tidakpredictable, mulai dengan pelan, namun makin keras dan intens di tengah sampai ujung lagu, rasanya lagu ini masih bisa membawa Brit bersaing ditengah gempuran dance pop female artists yang muncul belakangan.

Vocal Britney yang masih diberi sedikit efek Auto Tune, memang masih sering memancing kritik yang meragukan mutu vocal nya. Hey! Tapi ini dance music. Everybody knows Britney’s voice isn’t so good. But Who cares?! Tidak perlu suara semerdu Mariah Carey atau Celine Dion untuk membawakan genre seperti ini, tapi lebih kepada pesona penyanyi dan koreografi tarian di video klip nya yang membuat orang menyukai artis-artis seperti Ms. Spears.

Lagu ini memang dancefloor friendly, dengan refrain pop yanglikeable, terasa mirip dengan formula yang dipakai Black Eyed Peas di album terakhirnya. Memadukan unsur modern dengan unsur lagu retro yang melodius dan gampang diingat. Suka atau tidak, cewek yang satu ini telah berevolusi seiring waktu selama 12 tahun karirnya, mulai dari princess of pop sampai dengan dance diva, dan tetap menarik perhatian orang dengan musiknya, walau berita kontroversial kadang lebih dominan. The Queen is back, bit*h!

Song Lyrics

Hey over there
Please forgive me
If I’m coming on too strong
Hate to stare
But you’re winning
And they’re playing my favorite song

So come here
‘Little closer
Wanna whisper in your ear
Make it clear
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 ‘little hazy
But you just cannot deny

There’s a spark inbetween us
When we’re dancing on the floor
I want more
Wanna see it
So I’m asking 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

[Spoken]
If I said I want your body
Would you hold It against me?

(Yeah) (Uh huh) (Oh)

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

(Alright)

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
