Combining elements of Sir Elton’s past hits 1971’s “Tiny Dancer” and 1992’s “The One,” the danceable bop has so far peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100. Thanks to its top 10 debut, the song marked Spears’ highest-charting single since 2012’s “Scream and Shout” with will.i.am.
Just last week, Spears and John shared the first official remix of “Hold Me Closer,” featuring a reimagining by British DJ and producer Joel Corry.
