New Britney Spears single might signal a real comeback

She’s played a really safe card by putting out a song that’s exactly the sort of thing you expect from a pop star in 2011, but Britney Spears looks like she’s making a real attempt at a comeback this time with her new single, “Hold It Against Me.”  The song is nothing spectacular musically, but it’s all about the electro-house beats and the half-raunchy-half-cheesy bubblegum pop lyrics that made her a star in the first place.

Overall, the reception seems to be positive, and even the haters have to admit that the tune is catchy and she’ll probably have a decent hit with this.  I can definitely see that it’ll be a club favorite, what with the thumping bass and the dubstep grooves.
