LMFAO spends its fifth week atop the Billboard Hot 100, to be released tomorrow (Aug. 4) on Billboard.com, with “Party Rock Anthem,” featuring Lauren Bennett and GoonRock, while Britney Spears scores her third top 10, “I Wanna Go,” from her album “Femme Fatale,” marking her first-ever set to produce a trio of Hot 100 top 10s. Katy Perry’s “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” remains at No. 2.
“Party” takes over the top spot on Radio Songs, lifting 2-1 with a 2% gain to 146 million in all-format audience, according to Nielsen BDS. The track tallies a fifth week at No. 1 on Digital Songs, although it declines by 4% to 202,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
At No. 9, Spears’ “Go” enters the top 10 from No. 11. The cut concurrently reaches the top tier on Radio Songs (13-9; 76 million, up 22%) and rises 9-7 on Digital Songs (116,000, down by less than 1,000 downloads). With the song’s Hot 100 advance, Spears has tallied three top 10s from her seventh studio album, “Femme Fatale.” Lead single “Hold It Against Me” debuted at No. 1 the week of Jan. 29, and “Til the World Ends” reached No. 3 in May.
Spears had twice previously banked as many as two Hot 100 top 10s from an album. The title cut from “…Baby One More Time” spent two weeks at No. 1 and “(You Drive Me) Crazy” reached No. 10 in 1999. Spears repeated the feat with the first two singles from “Circus”; “Womanizer” topped the Oct. 25, 2008, Hot 100 and the title song rose to No. 3 that December.
“Go” is Spears’ 12th Hot 100 top 10 and fifth in-a-row. Her streak began with “3″ in 2009 (from “The Singles Collection”) and, along with the first three singles from “Femme,” includes Rihanna’s “S&M,” on which Spears guested; the song ruled the April 30 Hot 100.
Dating to Spears’ first week in the Hot 100′s top 10 (Dec. 12, 1998), she trails only Rihanna (18) and Beyonce (14) for most top 10s among women.
“Now listed as featured artist on “S&M,” Spears earns her fifth Hot 100 No. 1 and second this year, following her own “Hold It Against Me” in January. She had previously reigned with her debut single “…Baby One More Time” in 1999 and returned to the summit with “Womanizer” (2008) and “3″ (2009).
Joseph Kahn is one of the biggest video directors in the world, but he didn’t get to where he is today by burying his head in the sand. So when he was approached about doing Eminem and Rihanna’s “Love the Way You Lie” clip, he said yes, even though he was due to start shooting a feature film two weeks later.
But it wasn’t only the big names that attracted him to the project … it was actually the fact that everything about the project reminded him of another video he’d directed: Britney Spears’ comeback single “Womanizer.”
“It is like ‘Womanizer,’ ” Kahn told MTV News. “Part of the success in [the video industry] is to be smart enough to recognize when those opportunities are given, and, you know what? I think if I didn’t do this video, I should just quit pop videos, because it’s obviously a giant thing that was about to happen. You couldn’t get me away from this one.”
So Kahn famously hammered out a treatment for the clip in one furious session and turned the video around at a breakneck pace. His hustle has already paid off, because “Love the Way You Lie” has quickly become one of the most talked-about videos in recent memory. And much like “Womanizer” did for Spears, its success has only added another chapter to Eminem’s rather remarkable comeback story, which sort of proves just how smart Kahn is. Though, the way he tells it, this one was pretty much a no-brainer, all the way.
“I think that this is Eminem’s finest album … trust me, at the time, I was going to shoot my movie in about two weeks, so taking a week of my time away from my movie to do this is a huge commitment on my part,” Kahn said. “The only reason I did it [was] because the song was so amazing, and the album is so great, and Eminem is in such a great moment, and it was such an important topic to do. He’s dealing with these massive issues in such a brilliant, pop-y, artistic way, that, as a pop-video director, I cannot step away from this.”
Britney Spears’ seventh studio album was at first rumored to drop this May, but it appears the Brit circus won’t hit town again until June. We know you Brit diehards need your precious pop music, but the wait will be worth it—Billboard’s Sexiest Pop Star has lined up an all-star cast of producers for her latest offering.
We already heard names like Nate ‘Danjahandz’ Hills, aka Danja (“Gimme More,” “Break the Ice”), Max Martin (“3,” “If You Seek Amy,” “Baby… One More Time”) and Sean Garrett (“Toy Soldier”) rattled off as producers on the as-yet untitled Spears album. Now being thrown in the mix is K. Briscoe (”Womanizer”) and Corte Ellis (”Naked,” “Get Back”). Basically, Brit’s keeping close company on this release and working with producers with whom she shares a history.
However, there is a bit of new blood in the studio — Idolator fave David Guetta is reportedly conjuring up a hit for Brit too. Does this mean Spears will be dipping her (usually barefoot) toe into house music? And we’re still intensely curious about the rumor that some sort of Britney-Lady Gaga duet is in the works — though as Blackbook points out, these kinds of super-mega-star pairings have a tendency to under-deliver and/or hurt people’s ears.
We’ve got high hopes for this album, and the music certainly looks like it’s in the right hands. As for the songs’ lyrics, well, Britney doesn’t need any help coming up with clever witticisms to share with the world.
Tons of upbeat, exhilarating songs came out in 2009 to add some pizzazz to your workout mixes. “Boom Boom Pow” by the Black Eyed Peas and “TiK ToK” by KeSha were a couple of your faves, but surprise, surprise — guess whose song you liked best?
Oh, Britney Spears, you’ve done it again, for the second year in a row. Last year you moved us with “Womanizer,” and this year, your song “3″ is another fave. I don’t fret over the meaning of the song, but revel in the repetitive, fast-paced beats that are perfect for running to.
