OK … so I think I finally have some semi-official and somewhat definitive news regarding the release of Britney Spears’s new single Hold It Against Me. I was contacted, along with a selection of other bloggers, by Britney’s record label to be part of a fun fan-driven Facebook campaign to help get Brit’s single released. If everything goes according to plan, it will be the concerted effort of Britney’s fans that will get the song released at last.
The way it will work is YOU fans will be asked to spread a special message on your Facebook pages and once 2 million fans share the message, the song will automatically unlock and be released. In the coming days, a customized Pink is the new Blog widget will appear here on the site and then it will be up to YOU to use the widget to spread the message on Facebook. Thus far, there has been no official date released as to when this Facebook campaign will go down but I’m hearing it could be as early as next Monday January 10 … but, as with all the release dates we’ve been hearing, we cannot be sure of anything just yet. Know this, Britney’s new song will be unlocked within hours if not minutes of the Facebook campaign’s launch.
Now, I should clarify … it’s not clear if the song will actually unlock and be heard on Facebook or if the campaign will merely play out on Facebook and the song will unlock on some official website … but it is clear that fans will have to spread the message on Facebook to unlock the song and get it released.
I’m certain it will not be difficult to get 2 million people to work together in order to get Hold It Against Me released. Be ready … I’m counting on all y’all to help get Britney’s song released! I know I can’t wait a second longer than necessary — can you?
