Britney’s Hold It Against Me tops Canadian Hot 100

Hold It Against Me, the new single from Britney Spears entered both the Billboard Canadian Hot 100 and Digital Songs charts at No 1; while Avril Lavigne entered the Canadian Hot 100 at No 8 with her new single What The Hell. Emerging artist Zameer scored a digital hit with his cover of Glory Of Love.

Hold It Against Me sold 411,000 digital singles in the US within just one week of its release on iTunes. This is the biggest first-week track number for a female artist, say media reports. The record was previously held by Taylor Swift. According to Billboard, she’s the second artist in the trade magazine’s 52-year history to “debut multiple songs at No. 1,” and she “joins Mariah Carey as the only acts to arrive at No. 1 more than once.”

Outside of the United States, the single debuted at No. 1 in 19 other countries including Australia, Belgium, Japan, Canada, Switzerland, France, Ireland and more.

Britney’s new album is set for release in March 2011.
