Britney Spears’ new single Hold Me Closer with Elton John leaks online

Britney Spears’ long-awaited collaboration with Elton John has leaked online.

Fans are furious that the new song made the rounds on social media before the Princess of Pop could officially release it herself, The US Sun reported.

The song, titled Hold Me Closer, is Britney’s first new music in six years.

It is said to be a mashup of Tiny Dancer, one of Sir Elton’s most memorable tunes, mixed with samples from his other songs, including his 1992 song The One.

Britney, 40, has reportedly adapted the lyrics and offered to sing a new verse for the remix, which will be out every day.

But some fans online say they got it early and leaked what they believe is a preview of the single.

In the clip posted to Twitter, a voice allegedly belonging to Britney can be heard in her signature high-pitched tone that includes singing “hold me closer Tiny Dancer.”

While the short snippet has not been confirmed or denied, fans who have been waiting for the whole thing to be released in proper format are slamming the sneak.

“This is not okay. She works so hard,” wrote one Britney fan, citing the care the singer has put into her big comeback track.

“Stop leaking,” another pleaded, while a third shouted, “Remove it.”

One fan even wondered if the leak was even the final version of the song.

“Why leak if she’s not happy about it?”

Still, some anxious fans were all preoccupied with tasting her return.

“Can’t wait” one person exclaimed, while another tapped “OMG I want it.”

A third, who apparently listened to the alleged preview, praised it.

“She sounds so good,” the fan tweeted.

The partnership follows Elton’s team-up with Dua Lipa last summer.

Their hit single Cold Heart reached the top of several Billboard charts.

Britney hopes for a similar reception as she begins the process of performing again.

A source told The Sun that Elton has helped countless artists over the years, both publicly and privately, and was well versed in Britney’s fights.

“They’ve known each other for years, with Elton personally inviting Brit to some of his famous Oscar parties,” the insider revealed.

“He really wants the best for her and to hear them together on a track is great.”

About her love for Elton, Britney previously said: “I am the biggest fan in the world of his.

“Me and my mother, we love him to death.”
