Britney Spears' latest single, "Hold It Against Me," from her upcoming new album, was released today. It has all the makings of a classic Spears song: thumping bass, breathy, pouty vocals, and a catchy melody. And its chorus employs a pick-up line normally used by creepy guys at singles' bars (not to mention one that was used by the Bellamy Brothers in their 1979 hit, "If I Said You Had a Beautiful Body Would You Hold It Against Me?": "If I said I want your body now / Would you hold it against me?"
