YAY!

Congratulations to Britney for DEBUTING at NUMBER ONE on the Billboard Hot 100–her THIRD #1 in America!

This is a massive accomplishment and, excluding the assorted Idol singles sung by winners from previous years, hasn’t been achieved since Lauryn Hill‘s “(Doo Wop) That Thing” debuted at #1 in 1998.

What a way to celebrate The Singles Collection.

1, 2, 3!!!
