Elton John and Britney Spears released the music video for their “Hold Me Closer” collaboration Tuesday (September 27th).
Neither artist appears in the visual, but the Tanu Muino-directed video features dancers performing in Mexico City.
John wrote on Instagram that the clip “beautifully captures an immeasurable feeling of intimacy so missing from the world through the turmoil and chaos of recent times.”
Fans were not happy to see that Spears was not featured in the video. One commenter on John’s Instagram post wrote, “Yup! As we expected: no Britney. Rather boring.” Another added, “No Britney = fail. What’s the point?”
