Britney Spears Blocks Justin Timberlake From UK #1

Published: Sunday 20th Jan 2013 by Sam

Romance to rivalry.

Indeed, that’s the trajectory of former lovers Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake – at least on the charts.

Details after the jump…

Despite being on a musical hiatus of sorts, Spears continues to enjoy mammoth success with current single ‘Scream & Shout’ – particularly in the UK. The track, which is a co-headlined release from will.i.am, retained its spot atop of the Official UK Singles Chart this week – extending its stay at #1 to two consecutive weeks.

The impressive feat saw the single fend off major challenges from 50 Cent and Eminem‘s ‘My Life’ (#2), as well as Timberlake’s comeback effort ‘Suit & Tie’ (#3).

**********

While it’s somewhat easy to wallow in the “chart battle”, we see the numbers as “winning” for all. For, despite their collective highs and lows, the trio have each been chart forces for over 10 years. A testament, no doubt, to their individual longevity and a challenge to new stars to ensure the same can be said for them a decade down the line.

      Four years ago, a surprise performance by Beyonce at President Barack Obama’s Neighborhood Ball became arguably the most talked-about musical moment of the inauguration festivities.

      At the Jan. 20, 2009 event — broadcast on ABC and watched by 12.6 million U.S. TV viewers according to Nielsen — she serenaded the newly-elected president and first lady Michelle Obama with a cover of Etta James’ “At Last.”

      Video clips of the performance went viral on YouTube, other TV networks played it repeatedly, and sales of the song immediately surged. Beyonce’s already-released cover version earned a 1,318% sales gain according to Nielsen SoundScan in the tracking week ending Jan. 25. The tune sold 31,000 downloads that week — up from just 2,000 the week previous. (Her version of “At Last” had been released late in 2008 on the “Cadillac Records” soundtrack. She co-starred in the film as James.)

      Beyonce is back again for Obama’s second inauguration, though this time she’ll be performing at the Ceremonial Swearing-In Ceremony on Jan. 21. Also on hand for the ceremony: Kelly Clarkson and James Taylor.

      Obama’s first inauguration was a major TV event. The Jan. 20, 2009 ceremony was watched by 37.8 million U.S. TV viewers — the second-most-watched presidential inauguration after President Reagan’s first in 1981 (41.8 million). Leading up to that were an array of concerts and balls, broadcast on HBO and Disney Channel, all of which earned many millions of viewers and boasted A-list talent.

    • Truth ( Number 1 Nicki Stan) January 20, 2013

      She is still featured on the song tho so it counts as a number 1 for Will.i.am and Britney.

    • J January 20, 2013

  5. ƸӜƷ MC ƸӜƷ January 20, 2013

    I cannot express how disappointed I am in Justin and his music at the moment. WTF was that song all about? I mean the song itself, the production, the lyrics, his voice, etc….everything was just disappointing. I was expecting a lot from him so he felt extremely too short in my eyes. I dislike Scream&Shout but I dislike Suit&Tie more. I hope the rest of the album is not like this song AT all.

    • BEYSUS CHRIST January 20, 2013

      This isn’t about Justin tho it’s about BEYSUS & S******

      stay on topic lessor

    • Vegas Girl January 20, 2013

      I agree. I’m not the type that needs a song to “grow ” on me by listening to it multiple times, either I like it or I don’t, only need one listen to know that. (i dont even understand that line of thinking anyway). I just think its a weak single but because people like Justin and have been desiring a comeback, they’re willing to almost convince themselves it’s a better song than it is.

      That’s what we do with folks we like .

    • Benron (King of The Phucking Navi) January 20, 2013

      Diamonds > Suit and Flop

      Rihslayna stays outdoing legends.

      • ƸӜƷ 3 ƸӜƷ January 20, 2013

        Suit and Tie actually sucks so I agree. Justin isn’t a legend so idk what you mean, confused ho.

    • RoyalKev January 20, 2013

      @ ƸӜƷ MC ƸӜƷ

      I hate to agree, but that Justin song really don’t do it for me! I don’t like Scream and Shout either, but that is far more listenable… Never thought the day would come!

  12. denise January 20, 2013

    Uhhh that’s will. I.am song and unlike americana who buy hype other countries don’t. The only reason be-yawn-ce singing at the inauguration is because he likes her husband. We don’t want to hear her warble!

  13. Music Soul Harmony January 20, 2013

    There’s nothing disappointing about the song. It’s just not everyone’s taste but I think it’s pretty catchy and not some typical euro s***. But on a positive side, at least he is ahead of bruno mars. Go JT!

  14. J January 20, 2013

    Well Done Britney, keep the haters at bay.

  15. Masterpiece (Beyonce’s Weave) January 20, 2013

    Yasss Queen Britney is not one to be messed with. With only a few lines to a song, she has given every person in the game a seat.

    Go Britney.

  20. jaiyah January 20, 2013

    Go Britney, I like her and glad that her and her babysitter oops I mean Jason have broken up. Seems like she’s trying to get her stride back and hope that the 200 million vegas deal go through for her. Maybe performing in one spot can build up her confidence and maybe she can get a life coach to help build her self-esteem back up so she can start making more tv appearances without looking so uptight. I’m rooting for Brit Brit.

  21. BEYSUS CHRIST January 20, 2013

    I FEEL LIKE PRAYING TO BEYSUS….

    DEAR WONDERFUL LORD BEYSUS ITS BEEN SO LONG SINCE WE LAST SEEN EACH OTHER THE BEEHIVE MISSES YOU SO MUCH PLEASE SAVE US FROM THESE LOW BUDGET B****** LIKE KE$HA RIHANNA KIM NICKI ETC… I CAN’T DEAL WITH THEIR FUCKERY ANYMORE IM READY FOR YOU & LADY GODGA TO SLAY MY SOUL… IM SO EXCITED ABOUT YOUR ARRIVAL BEYSUS I CAN’T SLEEP IM SO FILLED WITH EXCITEMENT.. PLEASE HEAR MY CRYS LORD I NEED & WANT YOU 🙁
