Elton John Reveals Release Date for Duet Featuring Britney Spears

 Elton John Reveals Release Date for “Hold me close, tiny dancer”: Fans highly anticipate the collaboration between Elton John and Britney Spears‘ new duet. The internet has been buzzing with this, and both Britney and Elton fans are looking for info on their new song.

Britney Spears and Elton John have recorded a duet together. The cute part is that they are doing it with their flashback photos. 

The duet we eagerly await will be Britney’s first single since “Slumber Party” in 2016. Britney met the love of her life and her current husband, Sam Asghari, on the set of that music video. The duet with Elton John will also mark Spears’ first song since she departed from conservatorship in November 2021.

The news of Elton and Britney’s duet became public in July this year. Elton and Spears recorded this song earlier this year if the rumours are being believed.

Recently, the 75-year-old music legend Elton John revealed to the ecstatic fans the release date of his due with the Princess of Pop titled “Hold Me Closer.” This song covers Elton John’s hit classic “Tiny Dancer,” which was released in 1971. The name of this cover song came from the chorus line, “Hold me close, tiny dancer.”

Elton John captioned the Instagram post that revealed the cover art of the duet as

“August 26 #HoldMeCloser” 

The caption also included a red rose and a spaceship emoji. The two artists are depicted as children on the cover art. Many fans believe this to be some sort of cryptic message. However, in my opinion, it’s just a flashback of memories going back to the time of the original song in 1971. 

Britney also tweeted after the announcement of the duet. She wrote:

“Tiny Dancer #EltonAlways @eltonofficial.”

 AJ McLean of the boy band revealed in a 2020 Instagram video that they had recorded the song in 2017. The song was initially made for the Backstreet Boys’ latest album, “DNA.”Due to reasons unknown, the Backstreet Boys declined.

Now, that’s what’s called ” Made for Someone.”
