Let’s face it, as far as loyalty goes- very few can say they show up and show out for their favorite act in the way ‘Team Britney’ does for Britney Spears.
Ensuring her last album ‘Femme Fatale’ topped the Billboard 200 with 276,000 units upon release, her fans continued to put their money where their mouths are with the release of her Will.i.am forged duet, ‘Scream & Shout‘.
Now, in enjoying the fruits of their digital labor, yesterday saw them take the cut to all new heights in the UK.
Chart check below…
Believe it or not, ‘Shout‘ now sits at #1 on UK R&B chart and #3 on the nation’s overall tally, one spot down from last week’s position.
Marking her first #1 in the country since 2004′s ‘Everytime‘, Will & Brit‘s chart win comes two weeks after Grammy nominated songwriter Elijah Blake revealed that he had begun working on the icon’s 8th studio album alongside ‘Telephone’ producer DarkChild and the singer herself.
Elsewhere on the charts, Rihanna‘s ‘Stay‘ comes in at #2 on an R&B tip, while her Platinum single ‘Diamonds’ snaps at its heels at #3. Meanwhile, on the ‘main’ chart, ‘Stay’ sits at #4- making her the second Roc Nation act to score two or more UK Top 5 singles from an album released this year, after ‘Crazy Girl’ singer, Rita Ora.
