"Gimme More" will open at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Digital Songs with 179,000 downloads and soars 68-3 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Both charts will be posted tomorrow (Oct. 4) on Billboard.com."More" is her fifth Hot 100 top 10 and her best showing on the list since her smash debut "...Baby One More Time" hit No. 1 for two weeks in January 1999.
Her last top 10 was "Toxic," which peaked at No. 9 in March 2004.
Spears' as-yet-untitled new album is still on target for a Nov. 13 release via Jive.
I am sure many of you have listened to the song, and my feeling is that it is okay. It's not great, but not Paris Hilton bad. I would put her high sales down to hype and people wanting to hear the song and see how bad it is, but those are some really big numbers and so there must be a huge number of people that actually love the song and are going to buy the CD.
Now, it could be Britney just doesn't have anything to do after tanning at night and so is downloading her song over and over to make it look good.
