Melbourne (ANI): Britney Spears has jumped to the top of iTunes
singles charts in the US and Australia with her latest single,
'Hold It Against Me". The heavily-auto tuned dance number vaulted
past Bruno Mars' Grenade in the US and Dirty Talk by Wynter Gordon
Down Under, reports News.com.au.
"Seriously, I have the best fans ever," Spears tweeted after the
single leaked. "I love you all so much!! Everything I do is for
you! xoxo Brit," she added. The erratic pop music star single
success came despite accusations from 1970's country music duo The
Bellamy Brothers that the song steals their lyrics.
The Bellamy Brothers had a No. 1 hit in 1979 with If I Said You
Had a Beautiful Body, Would You Hold it Against Me? Spears' new
song includes the refrain "So if I said I want your body now, would
you hold it against me?" David Bellamy, half of the duo, told TMZ:
"Howard [Bellamy] and I have no personal beef with Britney. She's a
talented gal. But professionally, well, in all honesty, we feel
completely ripped off. Where's the originality?"
