I must admit, I’m a Britney Spears fan; whether she’s sugary sweet, showing her c-section scar in public, or kicking ass and taking names, there’s just something about Brit Brit that makes you love her (unless you hate her of course).
Britney’s latest single “Hold It Against Me” broke a record previously held by Taylor Swift for the biggest first-week sales tally for a song by a female solo artist. Swift’s “Today Was A Fairytale” sold 325K in its first week and Britney’s “Hold It Against Me” sold 411K digital copies this week…big numbers for an artist who has had her fair share of hits top the charts for over a decade. Spears is one of only 6 artists who debuted at number 1 and have been stars for over a decade; but she’s in great company as others include Whitney Houston, Elton John, Eminem, Michael Jackson, and Aerosmith.
It is overwhelmingly clear that Britney still has “It” so I guess the only other question is will Britney break her own record with her next single…I guess we’ll just have to wait and see!
