Britney Spears makes her second-highest debut on Billboard's mainstream top 40-based Pop Songs radio airplay chart, as "Ooh La La" roars in at No. 22. She arrived at a higher rank only with "Hold It Against Me" (No. 16) in 2011. The new song marks Spears' 31st Pop Songs visit, pushing her past Mariah Carey (30) for the second-most appearances in the chart's 20-year history. Rihanna leads with 36. "Audience reaction has been as expected thus far: her fans react to everything she does," says Erik Bradley, assistant program director/music director of WBBM Chicago, which played "Ooh" 56 times last week (June 17-23), according to Nielsen BDS. "Britney's important to the format and I really like the sound of the song."
