Britney is back, baby!

Pop star Britney Spears drops her first single since 2009 this week. Titled “Hold It Against Me,” the track features hard-driving verses and an airy chorus to tell the story of a romantic encounter she can’t resist, no matter the consequences.

She sings: “If I feel my heart was beating loud/If we could escape the crowd some how/If I said I want your body now/Would you hold it against me.”

The single, which goes on sale Tuesday at midnight EST, is produced by Spears’s long-time collaborators Max Martin and Dr. Luke. It’s the official lead single from her as-yet-untitled seventh studio album, due in March on Jive Records.
