Elton John and Britney Spears’ Hold Me Closer Comes Strong For No.1 Position In U.K Chart

Elton John and Britney Spears’ Hold Me Closer” is the top trending song on the Billboards chart since its release. If it continues to maintain its position, it will be yet another hit of Spears after the release of Scream & Shout in 2012.

The eight-week LF System monopoly in the UK is now facing tough competition from Elton and Britney’s new collab. The Scottish production duo has been unbeatable for the past two months with “Afraid to Feel” (via Warner Records). This track gained an unbreakable record since its release, and now its position seems to be at risk. Seems like the song was on the loop by the listeners and have not been beat by any other single in 2022 till now.

The groovy beat now has formed a three-way battle with DJ Eliza Rose’s “B.O.T.A. (Baddest Of Them All)” (Rosebud), Elton John and Britney Spears’s “Hold Me Closer” (EMI), but still continues to be on top in the midweek leaderboard.

According to the Official Charts Company, there are only 1,200 chart units dividing the top three at this point in the week.

U.K Chart Ranking

Elton and Britney’s collab song stands sturdy in the top trending list in the U.K and has also scored the title of being the most downloaded track of the week. While  LF System’s hit has created a long streak of being the king of streams.

the current position of Hold Me Closer on the U.K charts is at No. 3 and if it continues to be in this position it would mark Britney’s another record for a highest-charting single after Scream & Shout became No.1 in 2012. It would also mark the Rocket Man’s fourth straight appearance in the top 10. His run for the No. 1 position also included singles with Dua Lipa on “Cold Heart,” Ed Sheeran on “Merry Christmas,” and LadBaby and Sheeran on “Sausage Rolls For Everyone.”
