Britney has more US Top 40 radio hits this decade than ANYONE else!

According to

Billboard just confirmed, “Radar” will be her 21st entry + they gave an update on her album sales in the U.S.

Should Britney Spears’ “Radar” debut on the Mainstream Top 40 radio airplay chart next week *it’s #37 on MB*, which looks likely based on the format’s building chart, Spears will take sole ownership of most entries on the tally this decade. She’s currently tied with Nelly, each with 20 charted titles in that span. Here is a look at the hefty sales figures of Spears’ charted albums on the Billboard 200, according to Nielsen SoundScan:

10,534,000, “…Baby One More Time,” 1999 (No. 1, six weeks)
9,184,000, “Oops!…I Did It Again,” 2000 (No. 1, one week)
4,336,000, “Britney,” 2001 (No. 1, one week)
2,970,000, “In the Zone,” 2003 (No. 1, one week)
