(Listen) Elton John Gives Britney Spears Her First Number 1 Since 2011 with “Tiny Dancer” Remix

August 27, 2022

And just like that…Britney Spears can thank Elton John for putting her right back at number 1. At midnight, Sir Elton dropped his remix of Tiny Dancer — now called “Hold Me Closer” — featuring Britney Spears. Elton recast his mighty “Tiny Dancer” from 1972 as a dance number, and now there isn’t a person in the land who won’t be humming that damn chorus all day and all night. “Hold Me Closer” also includes bits of a great later Elton hit, “The One,” from 1992, with production from Cirkuit and Andrew Watt. Oh PS: This isn’t the last we’ll be hearing of “Tiny Dancer” this season.
