Pop Power: Britney Spears Rockets To #2 On iTunes With ‘Pretty Girls’

Published: Monday 4th May 2015 by Sam

Britney Spears experienced a chart disaster with her last album, ‘Britney Jean,’ but it appears the Pop force has once again found favor from the record buying public.

For, new single ‘Pretty Girls’ is off to a flying start.

Details below…

Released officially today, the Iggy Azalea assisted track has rocketed to #2 on the iTunes US chart.

With its popularity bar rising, the cut’s sole competition is Wiz Khalifa‘s seemingly unshakable hit ‘See You Again.’

Will Britney be able to top it? It’s probable, especially with its accompanying video due any day now.

Haven’t heard ‘Pretty’ yet? Take a listen below…

    Call me after a week. BBHMM went to #1 and still didn’t make it into the top 15

    • #JACKIE May 4, 2015

      Coming from a Kelly Rowland stan?

      • Kisses Down Low May 4, 2015

        @Jackie And you’re a Ciara stan boo whats your point?

      • #JACKIE May 4, 2015

        Honey Ciara has charted way more than Kelly EVER has. The only time Kelly is relevant is if Beyoncé is involved.

      • Kisses Down Low May 4, 2015

        I didnt ask about how many times shes charted. Where is she charting now? If it aint Top 15 either then sit.

      • Queen Brit Brit May 4, 2015

        Not a My Little Pony stan coming for Ciara. LOLOLOLOLOL!!! Where is that horse at now? Did she even see the charts with her last album?? LOLOLOLOL!!!

      • Kisses Down Low May 4, 2015

      • Mark111 May 4, 2015

        Felly! *????*

    • How Many Drinks May 4, 2015

      No lies detected.

    • LB May 4, 2015

      • CherylSoldierr May 5, 2015

        Everyone has

    • TheElusiveLamb May 4, 2015

      Why are both of you concerned with what Mariah Carey is doing?

      • Mark111 May 4, 2015

        We asked where is her single. Care to answer?

      • #1 Lamb May 4, 2015

        Its actually higher than American Methane. Care to explain that?

      • TheElusiveLamb May 4, 2015

        ^^ LOL Exactly.

  4. what’s a Bey Hive May 4, 2015

    The Queen of Rap Slaying With Queen B! If u ain’t on the team then u playing for team D!!!

  5. honeychildplease May 4, 2015

    Let’s see about this week 3…


    SLAY me Queen B! I’m not here for Iggy though… Ugh ????

    • Arc May 4, 2015

      It doest matter how many times u say Queen B its never going to stick. Beyonce or lil kim are Queen B and Britney is the Princess of Pop deal with it.

  7. Godney May 4, 2015

  9. LB May 4, 2015

    How much in royalties have been paid to Charli XXL, Gwen Stefani, Tove Lo and Beyonce (we all know she put her name on it)??? Just curious

    • Mark111 May 4, 2015

      *drops to the ground*

    • Musika May 4, 2015

      Ask Little Mix 😉

  10. LB May 4, 2015

    Plus the song is horrible, but at least Brit Brit isn’t doing the EDM sound anymore.

  11. Vegeta, Prince of Slayans May 4, 2015

    By the end of the week I doubt it’ll be anywhere near there. Gay white bottom fem twinks are the only ones that’ll actually bump this.When it comes to Iggy… ugh, just ugh

    • Jay May 4, 2015

      I’m a gay masculine bottom & black & I’ve been bumping this s*** all day….so, you’re theory is not accurate.

    • How Many Drinks May 4, 2015

      Same question could be proposed to the Navy about their OWN Fave when I look at American Oxygen at the bottom of the charts.

      • LB May 4, 2015

        Maybe you should be looking at Miguel’s new single, what is it called again, TEA? IDK

      • How Many Drinks May 4, 2015

        #173 American Oxygen.

        Enough said.

      • How Many Drinks May 4, 2015

        Death at Miguel being higher in South Africa than Rihanna is in America.

      • LB May 4, 2015

        I’m sure it is an achievement for you, seeing that South Africa is the only country that song charted in, you must be so proud.

      • How Many Drinks May 4, 2015

        Im proud of Miguels artistry. But can’t be as proud as you are of Rihanna for not producing that Ray Of Light era you so predicted. The growth. The artistic flair. They better have her money.

      • Keri Qween May 4, 2015

        The h/I/v is so pressed kii

      • How Many Drinks May 4, 2015

        Yet your master stays thinking of us as usual.

    • Suicide Blonde May 4, 2015

      Swaziland, where the f*** is that?

    • Queen Brit Brit May 4, 2015

      LOLOLOLOL!! Not you listing all these irrelevant countries. R&B is not big outside the US and UK. Plus Ciara hasn’t done any international promo. What is excuse is there for 20k selling American Sulfide? LOLOLOLOL!! Why couldn’t Rih and ha power save Tidal from flopping? LOLOLOL!!

  13. BLACKOUT TBH May 4, 2015

    The slayage is real. Like I said prior to the start of this era – naysayers shall seethe. And here they are – seething. Gaga & Bey stans have been constantly bashing it since its leak yet all they’ve done is contribute to making it the most talked about song on Twitter in the past 3 days, having topped the worldwide trends multiple times. Perhaps you should concentrate on promoting your faves’ singles which have been flopping in their respective latest eras with approximately no one checking for them. The thing about having a career full of ups and downs is that it keeps you interesting and gives you longevity instead of burning out Gaga-style. There’s a reason “Britney Spears” is the single most searched for name online since the internet’s creation. There’s also a reason why Britney & Iggy both have #1s this decade while Bey & Nicki don’t, and trust me, it’s nothing to do with race – it’s to do with having an ear for hits. The Queen of Rap slaying with Queen B, indeed. #StaySeverelyPressed

    • Vegeta, Prince of Slayans May 4, 2015

      Lol Britney and Iggy can keep the number 1s, Nicki and Bey will keep the talent and accolades. Flawless remix was Named best song of 2014, let’s see how s***** girls does with critics

      • Queen Brit Brit May 4, 2015

        LOLOLOLOLOLOL!!! Talent and accolades? Nicki has none of the above. LOLOLOLOL!! Iggy set more records with Fancy alone than Nicki has her entire pathetic and short lived career. Flawless remix flopped like Feelin Myself. Britney has more accolades than Nicki and Bey combined, have a seat.

      • BLACKOUT TBH May 4, 2015

        What accolades?! Britney is the most awarded female solo artist in music history with over 200 million record sales worldwide and counting! LOL you tried though!

      • How Many Drinks May 4, 2015

        Britney has more accolade than Nicki and Bey combined? Like what? That 1 Grammy she has compared to Beyonces 20. Beyonce is one of the most awarded musicians alive. What planet are you on? Must be the same one Britney is riding in that picture cos it aint earth.

      • BLACKOUT TBH May 4, 2015

        I’m on planet earth where people who do their research know the facts sweetheart. Britney has one Grammy that she earned. Beyoncé has 3 billion that she bought. There’s a difference. But that’s entirely besides the point – go count all of Bey’s awards/nominations/sales as well as Nicki’s, add them all up together and put them against Britney’s and it’s night and day. Britney’s accolades crumble your faves. I’m not saying it because I’m biased, I’m saying it because it’s a fact. Deal with reality or remain basic forever more.

      • Queen Brit Brit May 4, 2015

        LOLOLOLOL!! Accolades are more than just awards boo. I can list all of Britney’s but I’ll save myself the time and just refer you to her “Legacy” section on Wikipedia. LOLOLOLOLOL!! A self-drag when Brit’s one grammy is infinitely more Grammys than Nicki has. LOLOLOLOLOL!! #Grammyless&Talentless

      • How Many Drinks May 4, 2015

        Lmao. When all else fails, turn to lies. I win and only talk facts.
        20 Grammys>>>>38272772 irrelevant hype awards. Speaks for itself.

      • How Many Drinks May 4, 2015

        @Queen Brit Brit. Okay hun. Since we want to talk wiki does Britney have her own wiki page on people influenced by her like Beyonce.

      • Vegeta, Prince of Slayans May 4, 2015

        Feeling myself was never a single, flawless wasn’t even on iTunes until LONG after it had dropped, fancy went number 1 because of charli and clear channel, when has Iggy ever been on the hot 100 by herself, the pinkprint was on multiple year end best of lists and outsold Iggy’s tragic year old album in 2 months, and as for Britney, well… McDonald’s outsells 5 star restaurants but that doesn’t give them any worth

      • Alex May 4, 2015

        Last time I checked, Beyoncé is the most awarded artist alive!! Only Michael and Whitney have more!! Seat yourself! ????????????

    • BLACKOUT TBH May 4, 2015

      You see? Always going back to Grammys because that’s the ONLY receipt you have. Again, Britney has more accolades. Like it or not you cannot dispute that fact so stop embarrassing yourself the way Beyoncé did by pretending to have a baby she actually borrowed from Angelina Jolie’s archives.

      • How Many Drinks May 4, 2015

        How is it the only receipt? Shall we talk other awards as well? Tours? Lonegvity? Because Beyonce also has those. Not my fault the Grammys is the most prestigious accolade and your fave flops in that department. Beyonce is a more acclaimed artist than Britney. She simply has more talent in her little finger than Britney could wish for. There is a reason shes still selling in 2015 and Britney started buring out when she went solo. But I’ll let you get an erection over the dime sized piece of relevance Britney will have for a minuite on Itunes. Carry on…

    • BLACKOUT TBH May 4, 2015

      Here’s a little task for you: Search “Superstar” on Wikipedia and see the first picture that comes up. Aaaaaaaand you’re done. Bye.

      • How Many Drinks May 4, 2015

        Answer my question though.

  14. Centurion May 4, 2015

    I’m curious as to how streaming will help Britney.

  15. Bella3 May 4, 2015

    I love Britney I really, really do but for some reason Im not really feeling this song & it has a lot to do with how bad Iggy’s part is & I think Britney is trying to sound like iggy witch is even worse. lol And after everything iggy has said I’m only taking a A+ song like Fancy from her & nothing else’s. And Because Iggy can’t rap she needs a really good chorus or the song just doesn’t work for me. Maybe it will grow on me but Again I love Britney & I loved Fancy.

  16. How Many Drinks May 4, 2015

    I don’t really care for the song, Billboard awards will help it though.

  17. Suicide Blonde May 4, 2015

    This is one of Britney’s worst singles, it’s awful.

    • JOHNVIDAL May 4, 2015

      What do you think of Madonna´s “Forbidden Love” from the Confessions album? It´s one of my favorites from her ever! It has always had the power to take me to another place. I adore it.

      • Suicide Blonde May 4, 2015

        It’s also one of my faves 😀

  18. Queen Brit Brit May 4, 2015

    SLAY Britney!!! LOLOLOLOLOL!! Weren’t yall saying this would flop? That Britney was done? That Iggy was done? Why are they both scalping? LOLOLOLOLOL!! The Legendary Britney is still scalping. It’s just beginning too. Wait till the video, radio release, and performances kick in. #16YearsOnTop

    • BLACKOUT TBH May 4, 2015

      It must be hard to stan for other people when the 1st second of “Gimme More” alone is more iconic than everyone else’s careers though, I mean…I kinda feel bad for these gurls really. BRB, gonna go listen to that one Britney Spears album that outsold Katy Perry’s entire discography, oh no wait…maybe I’ll listen to that OTHER Britney Spears album that also outsold Katy Perry’s entire discography…ugh, so much slayage to choose from yet so little time *sob*

      • Queen Brit Brit May 4, 2015

        YASSSS! *listens with you*

      • Rosie May 4, 2015

        …in 1999? Meanwhile Robot’s LAST album still hasn’t sold 700K worldwide.

  19. JOHNVIDAL May 4, 2015

    Pure crap.
    Knowing how low nowadays standards are it may be a moderate hit in the USA. Who knows!
    Still, that #2 on itunes doesn´t mean anything. It could fall in a couple of days.

    ps: did I really have to read in this post Britney is the most awarded female in music history??? LMAO Not that it is the absolute truth, but wasn´t Whitney the one who got that? Some people cannot separe awards from sales anyway lol Not to mention Britney is not the best selling anything either obviously.

  20. Marley May 4, 2015

    Lol am I supposed be impressed by this? Lol at her stans peeing themselves over #2 itunes.

  21. Janet’s Left Tittie May 4, 2015

    Never under estimate singles from Britney Spears, Britney Jean may not have sold as an album but Work B**** was a hit and so was Scream and Shout, and the album before that had Till The World Ends I Wanna Go, and Hold It Against Me, the album before that had Wominizer, the album before that Gimmie More, Break The Ice Piece Of Me, oh and this is all just Britney in recent years, so Hold On To Your Wigs!

  22. Danny Bey May 4, 2015

    I really hope this goes number on Hot 100

    • Danny Bey May 4, 2015

      *Number One

  23. TheElusiveLamb May 4, 2015

    Congrats Brit Brit.

  24. Stephon May 4, 2015

    Terrible song.

  25. Arc May 4, 2015

    What was Britney’s last number one? I’m not being shady just curious. Was it toxic?

  26. #1 Lamb May 4, 2015

    Dead at the Goat stans bringing up legendary Mariahs chart position. They must be forgetting that everyones faves current songs are currently ranking higher than the Farting Gas song. Even ‘I Bet’ is.

    • TheElusiveLamb May 4, 2015

      ???????????????????? Exactly. If only he was using his 1GB plan to download Tear Gas, then Triumphant wouldn’t be outselling her fav.

  27. TheElusiveLamb May 4, 2015

    I can’t at Ms. Marsha assistant trying to talk about forgettable when Kershaw hasn’t even sold 220k worldwide. These bottoms kill me trying to get their Boost Mobile phones in sync so they can +1 each other comments. ????????????????????

    • #1 Lamb May 4, 2015

      Not Kershaw. They think its still 2011 ‘We Found Love’ days or something. Those days have passed. And Rihannas not even close to a legend yet so she can’t afford to flop like Mariah can.

  28. HYDROQUINONe May 4, 2015

    Kitchen Porń

  29. Roy May 4, 2015

    NUMBER ONE in 31 countries 😀

    16 years later and still slaying 😀 she is like 10% away from passing the falling Wiz song.

    IT’S BRITNEY B****

    • Citi May 4, 2015

      17* years later =]. She been out since 1998 hunty and she still staying. People still check for her. We can compare her to whoever whatever but she is relevant.

  30. Rosie May 4, 2015

    …and? West Coast was #2 for like 5-6 days with a MUCH bigger hit blocking it (plus #1 in 30+ countries also) and we all know what happened to that.

    • CherylSoldierr May 5, 2015

      West coast went to number 3 off of preorders. The demand was never there. You tried.

  31. Mark111 May 4, 2015

    … Can the LAMEs answer my question or naw? Where is Infiniflop? Going on about another artist isn’t answering the question. Funny how them and the pest will run away from a question when their fave is flopping.

    • CherylSoldierr May 5, 2015

      Girl where is American flopxgen, bbhmm, 4/5 head?

  32. TheElusiveLamb May 4, 2015

    Can the closet bottom Battleships answer where is Tear Gas? Infinity is a new single, so wait for it’s debut before you try to throw your weak shade.

    • Keri Qween May 4, 2015

      Excuses fat a**

      Ao debuted in the top 20 of iTunes upon its release

      When will infiniflop?

  33. TheElusiveLamb May 4, 2015

    ^^ Why is a certain stan trying to talk about chart positions and sales when these receipts exist?

    Enermax- FLOP
    A Flopping Woodpecker- Gold after a reissue
    No Certifications Allowed- 202k
    Not to mention mega flops like Slow Dance, Loose Hole, Medicare, One Hit Wonder, Changed Me, I Flop, among others including her RECORD BREAKING flop with Xzibit? ????????????????????????

  34. TheElusiveLamb May 4, 2015

    FYI no matter how high Tear Gas debuted on iTunes, it still made a 91 debut on Billboard with 20k sold.

    • Keri Qween May 4, 2015

      You were the one talkong about itune positions tho so i just losyed a fact, ao debuted in the top 20 of itunes .when will infiniflop get there?and she has fourfive which is at 1.7 million and bbhmm is a sleeper hit like loveeee song it will be gold

  35. Keri Qween May 4, 2015

    How much has me I am irrelevant sold?

  36. TheElusiveLamb May 4, 2015

    Lol ok? Still bragging on the accolades of Riri I see. Can you not answer my question? Why did that entire list I just wrote of Kershaw FLOP? Why is the highlight of Kershaw’s career having Beyoncè CDs thrown at her? Her biggest venue is a Wal-Mart (not even a super center) parking lot? Why must you cling to the hair on Marsha’s balls, slurp the nut dry from Riri’s d***, and never bring up your fav’s album sales?

    • What now May 4, 2015


      • TheElusiveLamb May 4, 2015

        It’s there fault though boo. WTF are you worrying and bringing up Mariah for? These prepaid bottoms stay pressed over the Songbird Supreme.

  37. RATEDXXX May 4, 2015

    the song is not bad per se…it doesn’t sound generic..points for that..and britney’s voice is great..

    but iggy, fukcs it up…. her voice irks me..nicki would have been so much better…

    I would never thought in a million years i would appreciate nicki as a rapper..but thanks Iggy..sarcasm..

    I’m not here for number 1’s and album sales…i’ts britney b****

  38. What now May 4, 2015


  39. RATEDXXX May 4, 2015

    alicia keys has between 12 and 15 grammys

    she’s not even worlwide

    please….did you people really think the beyondfake delusional stans were really going to support Ciara?

    Ha….hahahahahahahhahaaha..good one

    the only reason they’re so call team Ciara is because rihanna is doing good right now…

    • RATEDXXX May 4, 2015

      not doing good

  40. Rosie May 4, 2015

    Death at the Keri “”stan”” getting dragged. Stop hiding behind Rihanna f**.

  41. rihicon May 4, 2015

    girl, trust me, don’t let iTunes positions get you gassed

  42. You wanna love it right bettor then my funky money May 5, 2015

    The remix would be better or Britney spear could of had another rap Artist on there

  43. CherylSoldierr May 5, 2015

    Why are Lana fad rey stans commenting about iTunes positions? Ultraflops combined sing les sales don’t even surpass a fifth harmony second single.
