Britney Spears has always been a tough act to follow and Beyonce and Lady GaGa are about to find out why. The megastar’s new single, ‘Hold It Against Me’, has roared onto the Billboard Pop chart, debuting at #16 on the tally with a record-breaking 4,071 plays.
Not only has the song entered the tally with the highest 1st-week detections in the 18-year history of the chart but is also tied with Madonna’s ‘Frozen’ for the 2nd highest debut on the Pop format. However, even the Queen and Princess of Pop could not dethrone head diva Mariah Carey’s ‘Dreamlover’ which entered the lineup at #12 in 1993. Girl power.
