Hold Me Closer Director: Sir Elton John and Britney Spears’ collaboration was emotional

The director of the music video for Sir Elton John and Britney Spears’ collaborative track Hold Me Closer says the experience is “an emotional experience.”

Anu Muino said she was inspired to become a director after seeing one of Spears’ videos and “grew up” with the work of Sir Elton.

“Hold Me Closer” mixes Sir Elton’s 1971 hit “Tiny Dancer” with his 1992 song “The One”, while parts of 1976’s “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” are also included in the track.

The official video, released on Tuesday, shows couples of dancers performing intimate routines and embracing in different, colorful settings.

Muino, who is also known for directing music videos for the likes of Harry Styles, Lil Nas X, Cardi B and Lizzo, said she wanted to create something that would “raise eyebrows” and make Sir Elton and Spears “proud”.

“It was very emotional for me as I grew up with Britney,” she said.

“After seeing Slave For You I decided I wanted to be a video director (and) Elton John is an icon that I and the world grew up with.”

She continued, “Walking into this video, I knew the audience and fans would have a lot of emotional expectations.

“With this responsibility I had to do something different and unexpected. The optics had to be different.

“The dance had to be prescient to raise eyebrows and make Elton and Britney proud.

“It was easy to find the best dancers, the best crew and access to some of the most private places on earth as everyone wanted to work with Elton John and be a part of his legacy.”
