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.”

OUCH!

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??

Hold it against me
