Oops, she did it again. Britney Spears’ “Hold It Against Me,” leaked Monday and officially released on Tuesday, shot straight to no. 1 on iTunes and also set a new bar for first-day radio spins, according to a statement released by her label.
Says industry analyst Kevin McCabe (via MTV), “Top-40 outlets across the country immediately put ‘Hold It Against Me’ in rotation and received instant-reaction airplay at America’s most-influential stations, including Z100 and WXRK in New York and KIIS and KAMP in Los Angeles”—not entirely an unexpected result for a new Britney single, considering her last two, “2008’s “Womanizer” and 2009’s “3,” performed similarly well, and also jumped quickly to the top spot on Billboard’s Hot 100.
Perez Hilton is also reporting today that Spears will be performing at the upcoming Grammys ceremony in Los Angeles on Feb. 13, though her rep will not confirm the news.
