Hold Me Closer, Britney Spears and Elton John’s duet, is officially a smash. The pop anthem – which is based on the first three lines of Elton’s classic 1971 hit Tiny Dancer – has debuted at number three in the UK and is the country’s most downloaded song of the week.

Britney’s first original song since the termination of her conservatorship, Hold Me Closer has become the highest-charting song for the pop icon since she topped the charts with her collaboration, Scream & Shout.

It also marks Elton’s fourth consecutive top five entry in a year, following Cold Heart (with Dua Lipa and Pnau), Merry Christmas (with Ed Sheeran) and Sausage Rolls for Everyone (with Sheeran and LadBaby), all of which reached number one.

In a statement, Elton said it’s “such a thrill” to see how Hold Me Closer is “connecting with fans” around the world. “Scoring my first Official Number 1 in over a decade with Cold Heart was a wonderful feeling,” he said. “I thought my days of having hit singles were behind me.
