Britney Storms America - #1 in USA and Canada!

America...the continent that is!

Britney's "Womanizer" has this week shot straight up the chart to hit the top spot in the States in both the Billboard Pop 100 and the all important Billboard Hot 100, making Britney the United States official number one, and has gone in at #1 in Canada's Hot 100 too.

The song made a record-breaking jump to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 breaking the record set by T.I.'s Live Your Life which had previously jumped from number eighty to number one. It also garnered first-week download sales of 286,000, the biggest opening-week tally by a female artist since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking digital downloads in 2003, besting Mariah Carey's take for Touch My Body by just over 200 units.

This marked Spears's first number one single on the US Hot 100 since her debut ...Baby One More Time. This truly is Britney's comeback!
