Britney Spears and Sir Elton John have confirmed their collaboration single and everyone is freaking out.

Rumours started swirling that the two musical icons had been cooking up a storm in the studio last month, with sources teasing that it would be the ‘song of the summer’.

Well, it seems we won’t have long to wait until the track blesses our ears, as the pair have made the big announcement.

Hold Me Closer will be a new rendition of Sir Elton’s classic 1971 hit Tiny Dancer, marking Britney’s return following the end of her 13-year-long conservatorship.

The Gimme More hitmaker hasn’t released an official single since 2016’s Slumber Party, the video shoot for which she met her now-husband Sam Asghari.

But, fans are more than ready to eat up something fresh, especially after the pop queen shared a clip of her singing a new, more sultry version of debut single, Baby One More Time.

Well and truly breaking the internet by confirming reports that he had collabed with Brit, Sir Elton shared the artwork for Hold Me Closer, which simply features a heart and a rocket emoji.

He also shared the link for his 1.1million Twitter followers to pre-save the track, but didn’t offer and further details.
