Lady Gaga/ Britney Spears mashup: "Hold It Against Me" Vs "Scheiße"

The first Divadevotee produced mash-up created entirely on the free software, Audacity. There are problems with the sound quality, volume, the pitch and speed of parts, and it has an overall unpolished smear about it, but I don't think it's too shabby for a first attempt!

Review: Britney "Hold it against me" (LISTEN TO )

Britney Spears' new song, Hold it against me, has just premièred online and I'm sad to say she has returned with a run-of-the-mill, David Guetta-ish, dime-a-dozen, club track.

Hold it against me is effectively a schizophrenic dance song that can't make its mind up what segment of the dance market it wants to appeal to, so decides to target them all.

Its verses are driven by a thumping baseline, that's clearly aimed at the gay scene. Then the sound is softened in the chorus, by a textbook removal of the bass-line, which makes the song appeal to the pop market. The middle 8, which is the best part of the song and ironically features pretty much no Britney vocals, gives the song an edge by exposing the world, excitingly, to the grimy Dubstep sound of South London. But not being content with the stop off in London the song carries on in to an Ibiza rave, thus hopefully appealing to the big European clubs, with some euphoric atmosphere generating synths. Before it finally ends up back at the gay scene where it all started.

Cover for Hold it against me by Britney Spears

2011 is the year of the Diva, with Beyonce, Britney Spears and Lady Gaga all vying for our cash with new material. Lady gaga got the ball rolling earlier this week by revealing the cover of her new album Born this way and now Britney Spears follows by unveiling the cover art for her new single Hold it against me.

What's most exciting about this album are the reports that claim Britney Spears is dabbling in the UK underground genre of Dub-step. If this were to be true then this album could potentially rival that of her masterpiece, Blackout. Unfortunately the CD cover of Hold it against me doesn't reveal much about the angle or theme this as yet untitled album is taking.
