“Thank you Tiny Dancer!!” wrote John’s husband, David Furnish commenting on the post.
Spears shared a message with her fans on Twitter and Instagram on the same day, where she tweeted: “Thank you to my fans for making my song number one for a week now.”
Visibly it also reflected on her working with John, she wrote on Instagram separately, “The fact that I’m doing a song with Elton .. makes me wanna freaking cry.”
In a part she added, “He’s me and my mother’s favorite musician. What an honor to be with such gifted hands!!!”
On 26th August “Hold Me Closer” was released which is a combination of John’s hits “Tiny Dancer” and “The One.” The Rocket Man spoke about the experiences of working with Spears.
In an interview with The Guardian, the 75-year-old said: “I’m so excited to be able to do it with her because if it is a big hit, and I think it may be, it will give her so much more confidence than she’s got already and she will realize that people actually love her and care for her and want her to be happy. That’s all anybody in their right mind would want after she went through such a traumatic time.”
Further, he shared that it was his husband who suggested for the collaboration with Spears on the single with him.
“He said it would be wonderful for Britney Spears to do it. I said, that’s a pretty amazing idea. She hadn’t done anything for so long. I’d been following what’s been happening to her for a long time,” he said, referring to her conservatorship battle that ended the previous year.
