Elton John and Britney Spears joined forces to produce the song “Hold Me Closer.”

The song combines “Tiny Dancer” with his 1992 single “The One.”

Additionally, Britney Spears returned to music after 13 years of conservatorship ended.

According to sources, Elton John held a little party at a restaurant in Cannes this week, playing the song to attendees while singing along. The event was live-streamed and posted to Instagram.

Spears took to Twitter on Wednesday to commemorate the release.

She said, Okie dokie … my first song in 6 years  !!!! It’s pretty damn cool that I’m singing with one of the most classic men of our time … @eltonofficial !!!! I’m kinda overwhelmed… it’s a big deal to me !!! I’m meditating more  and learning my space is valuable and precious!!!”

She went on, “I’m learning everyday is a clean slate to try and be a better persona and do what makes me happy… yes I choose happiness today. I tell myself everyday to let go of the hurt bitterness and try to forgive myself and others to what may have been hurtful. I want to be fearless like when I was younger and not be so scared and fearful. I pray there actually is truth to the Holy Spirit and I hope that spirit is with my children as well!!! Yes … I choose happiness and joy today!!!”

Spears and John were absent from his annual Academy Awards Viewing Party. However, Britney’s husband Sam Asghari attended in her place. He said at the time, “I wish she was here. She’s at home doing a couple of stuff… She’s traveling a lot.”
