Britney Spears 'Ends' Up Atop Dance/Club Play Songs
Britney Spears ascends to her seventh No. 1 on Billboard's Dance/Club Songs chart, as "Till the World Ends" rises 2-1.
The song is the second No. 1 on the chart from Spears' album "Femme Fatale," following "Hold It Against Me," which topped the March 19 tally.
Spears notched her first Dance/Club Play Songs No. 1 with Madonna, the artist with the most toppers (40) in the chart's 35-year history. Here are Spears' seven leaders on the list:
2003, "Me Against the Music" (featuring Madonna)
2007, "Gimme More"
2008, "Piece of Me"
2008, "Break the Ice"
2011, "Hold It Against Me"
2011, "Till the World Ends"
"Till the World Ends" peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 two weeks ago following the release of its Nicki Minaj- and Ke$ha (the song's co-writer)-assisted remix. The song has sold 1.3 million downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The track logged an all-format radio audience of 87 million in the May 4-10 tracking period, according to Nielsen BDS, marking Spears's highest-ever weekly total.
As Spears reigns on Dance/Club Play Songs, Katy Perry soars in at No. 32 with "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)," the sixth chart entry from her album "Teenage Dream." The first five singles - "California Gurls," featuring Snoop Dogg, the title cut, "Peacock," "Firework" and "E.T." - all reached No. 1.
Fellow superstar diva Beyonce bows at No. 43 on Dance/Club Play Songs with "Run the World (Girls)." Of her prior 19 chart entries, 14 have risen to No. 1.
All charts will be refreshed Thursday (May 19) on Billboard.com.
