We've heard the single, seen the daily video teasers, and anxiously awaited the premiere of Britney Spears ' "Hold It Against Me" music video. At long last, the Jonas Åkerlund-directed clip for the first "Femme Fatale" single premiered tonight (Feb. 17) at 9:55 PM EST on MTV and VEVO. Check it out below:
The video opens with a comet invading earth's surface, and Spears is quickly shown on a video set, mingling with half-naked male dancers while camera capture her every move. As the tempo changes during the chorus, the pop star is shown in a huge white gown, rising through a cylinder of video screens that display her past music videos.
The highlight of the "Hold It Against Me" clip comes during its dubstep-inflected breakdown, where footage of Spears shooting multicolored fluid out of her fingers is intercut with shots of the singer physically beating up a clone of herself. The video closes with an extended choreographed dance sequence as Spears sports the sexiest of the video's outfits: a tight black dress with leather gloves and boots.
Spears shot the music video on Jan. 22 and 23 after the single -- which was produced by pop hitmakers Lukasz "Dr. Luke" Gottwald, Max Martin and producer Billboard -- was released on Jan. 10 and hit No. 1 on the Hot 100 in its first week. Beginning Feb. 4, the pop star previewed the clip by posting seconds-long video teasers  each day on her Twitter account .
