This single is really lazy and low budget in all aspects (cover, video, lyrics and production), fascinating how she's actually losing to Demi this time when their prevoous eras were the opposite. Shame, cause Fetish was underrated
"Hold It Against Me" by Britney won't be remembered by the general public either. Even Britney doesn't like the song that much but it was a #1 single and the song had a huge dubstep part. She was one of the earliest pop artist making use of dubstep. She heavily influenced pop music as well at that time (music critics, magazines are backing this up as well).
Same happened to Selena and Justin around 2015/2016.
Maybe they didn't create evergreens but they clearly left their mark in pop music because their sound and songwriters got so popular.
