A new acoustic version of Elton John and Britney Spears’ “Hold Me Closer” has arrived.

The most recent version has a piano-only, stripped-down version of the song that highlights Spears’ vocal ability.

Olympic Gold Medalist Nathan Chen ice skates to a routine he choreographed using the stripped-down version of Elton and Britney’s song for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, where he won gold.

“Elton John’s music means something to anybody who’s ever listened to it,” Chen shares.“I couldn’t believe it when I heard Elton thought of me for this video. Elton and Britney created something really beautiful with this version of ‘Hold Me Closer’ — and I’m so honored to be a part of it.”
