Britney Makes It Into Billboard's 100 Greatest Song Bridges of the 21st Century

Recommended Posts

Billboard staff ranked Britney's Hold It Against Me as the 42nd song with the best bridge from the 21st century. They further discuss the songs impact on dubstep : " [HIAM] became the first song to ride a dubstep drop to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 -- opening the floodgates for about two years' worth of subsequent pop hits to find similar success doing the same".

Gaga's Shallow (#6) and Marry the Night (#50), Rihanna's Whats My Name (#18), Enrique's Bailando (#19) and Beyonce's Crazy In Love (#25), Dua's Levitating (#26), Christina's Beautiful (#33), and Miley's We Cant Stop (#44) also made the list.  

As for the Top 5:

1 - Outkast - Hey Ya

2 -  the Killers -  All These things That 've Done

3 - Olivia Rodrigo - Drivers License

4 - Ke$ha - Praying

5 - Kelly Clackson - since U Been Gone

Madonna's hung up made the cut. I was expecting three more Vogue, Like a Prayer and of Course Sorry where the Bridge is Madonna saying forgive me in 3 languages. 


But the Bridge to Hung up is essential Madonna.


Alluding to her strength and referencing her past triumph in Evita. 


"Don't cry for me, cos I'll find way, then her sassy kiss off delivers the sucker punch to the guys balls..


"You'll wake up one day, but it will be too late.

Those were not released in the 21st century.

Also Billboard picking the original Don't cha over PCD was shady and had me screaming.

What about Everytime?


I may have made it rain

Please forgive me 

My weakness caused you pain

And this song is my "Sorry"


At night I pray

That soon your face will fade away

It’s definitely a beautiful ballad & bridge but not as legendary/groundbreaking as HIAM
