Britney Spawns TOP 10 Hits

Britney Spawns TOP 10 Hits
Britney Spears spawns her 11th top 10 hit with "I Wanna Go" jumps from #11 to #9. Remarkably, seven of these top 10 hits have come since Spears' public meltdown in 2007, when she seemed to be cracking under the pressure of a life in the tabloids. Happily, Spears got it together, personally and professionally, and has since delivered hit after hit. Her current album, Femme Fatale, is her first to spawn three top 10 hits.  "Hold It Against Me" debuted at #1 in January. "Till The World Ends" peaked at #3 in May. Billboard is giving Spears credit for a top 10 hit for her guest role on a remix of Rihanna's "S&M." Joel Whitburn, who publishes a series of reference books based on the Billboard charts, isn't counting that as a top 10 hit for Spears. Let's take a look at this: Spears received featured billing on Rihanna's hit on the Hot 100 (as published in Billboard) just once. The very next week, the billing reverted back to simply Rihanna. I agree with Whitburn that Spears' period of prominence on this recording was too fleeting to have this count forever as a top 10 hit for her. Thus, I count "I Wanna Go" as Spears' 11th top 10 hit, not her12th.
