When you look at the career path for David and Howard Bellamy — known as the Bellamy Brothers — one song stands out as the pivotal point that took their music to the next level.
“Back in 1979, I wrote a little song called ‘If I Said You Had a Beautiful Body, Would You Hold It Against Me,’” recalls David Bellamy. “That little song went No. 1 and has since become one of the defining songs of our career.”
Earlier this week, the Bellamy Brothers have noticed a spike on YouTube when the video for ‘If I Said You Had a Beautiful Body, Would You Hold It Against Me’ was up 270,000 views. Turns out it’s no coincidence. Pop icon Britney Spears’ new single ‘Hold It Against Me’ hit radio Tuesday (Jan. 11) — and it holds much similarity to the Bellamy Brothers’ hit.
