It is believed that the “Hold Me Closer” song is “refashioning” of John’s 1971 hit song “Tiny Dancer” which was leaked on social media on a Thursday night and it gathered different reactions from fans as stated by Metro.
Britney fans noted that the leaking of the song incident was “disrespectful.” One fan expressed anger to the incident saying it is ruining the release of the first solo of Spears as “free” woman after the conservatorship battle.
Another fan reacted to the leaked song saying, “I’m so tempted to go find the Hold Me Closer leak but I want to respect both Britney & Elton, I’ve been waiting for this moment for almost six years.”
But one fan talked about knowing who is the possible mastermind behind the “leak song” incident he said that he did a back-trace on the username of the person who leaked the “Hold Me Closer” snippets and indicated that it was none other than Spears sister, Jamie Lynn. The ‘Hold Me Closer’ collab of the two artists will also spot Spears initial current material since 2016 album after 13 year conservatorship battle with her family.
The single is set to be released on August 26 by Universal Music.
