Video: Miguel Covers Britney’s ‘Hold It Against Me’

Published: Monday 28th Mar 2011 by Sam

R&B newcomer Miguel has been making quite the name for himself since the release of his critically acclaimed debut ‘All I Want Is You’ last November. Though the album didn’t necessarily fly off shelves, the singer has continued to grind – gaining new fans as the months progress.

The most recent stop on that grind is Billboard’s ‘Mashup Mondays‘, where the 24 year old performed a cover of Britney Spears‘ #1 smash ‘Hold It Against Me’. Both Miguel and Spears are signed to Jive, hence we’re sure there’s a little cross-promotional motive going on here (never any harm in that, though).

Check out the reworked live rendition of the song below…

Great interpretation of the track. I like.

Randomness: Oh the irony of another act singing the song live before Britney.

Your thoughts?

    There is something about Miguel that seems a tad “zesty”? Not quite Jason De HELL NO zesty but zesty none the less!

    He sounded good but he looks a damn mess!

    What the hell is he wearing?

    What is going on with his hair?

    So many questions…

  13. Kisses March 28, 2011

  14. AREIS March 28, 2011

    NOW THAT WAS GOOD I MUST SAY…..I’m now a fan

    Luving his version. OMG slowly becoming one of my fav artists. Love his music so far, his voice, and the fact that he’s kind of out of the box. Variety is good.

  16. BeyonceFan March 28, 2011

    OMG I LOVE HIM this is great

  17. ShadyHo March 28, 2011

    He looks like a wack version of Pharrell and that annoys me so much. His version was good but I don’t like when people take stupid songs and try to spruce it up even if they sound good.

  18. Who’s Cedric? March 28, 2011

    Hated it.

  19. Robier March 28, 2011

    This is So good

    He killed it. Funny though like you said, an act sung her song live 1st!, lmao.

    Miguel is doing his thing. Anyone catch his performance at SXSW? If you haven’t you’re missing out for real… Peep it!
