Don’t Hold It Against Me
Team Britney or Team Bellamy Brothers?
Britney Spears’ songwriter is firing back at the Bellamy Brothers’ claim that her hit song Hold It Against Me is a rip-off of their 1979 song If I Said You Had a Beautiful Body Would You Hold It Against Me?
Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald is countersuing the duo alleging that they launched a “smear campaign” against Britney, claiming that it was “a publicity stunt aimed to increase their record… and to combat their dwindling relevance.”
He’s suing for defamation damages as well as a court order that states that Britney’s song has nothing to do with the Bellamy Brothers.
Besides the one lyric, the two songs sound nothing alike. The line “if I said you had a beautiful body, would you hold it against me” was a double entendre said by Groucho Marx.
What do U think?? Is Hold It Against Me a rip-off or just a coincidence??
