Britney Spears is back on the Billboard charts, and on at least one ranking, she rules the game. This week, the singer claims the No. 1 spot on the Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales ranking with her latest collaboration, "Mind Your Business.” The tune is another duet with the talented frontman of Black Eyed Peas, Will.I.Am.
The song's ascent to the pinnacle of the chart comes as no huge surprise, given Spears' track record of chart-topping hits and her undeniable star power.
"Mind Your Business" debuts at No. 1 on the Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales chart, the ranking of the bestselling tunes in America that can be labeled either dance or electronic. The song opens with a sales figure of over 4,600 copies, as reported by Luminate.
To put this achievement into perspective, the second bestseller on the chart this frame, "Real Hips 2" by Bandmanrill and DJ Sliink, pales in comparison, failing to even secure a spot within the top 50 bestselling tunes in the United States. Will.I.Am and Spears' collaborative effort has not only triumphed but has done so by a significant margin, perhaps outselling its closest rivals many times over.
"Mind Your Business" nearly achieved the status of a top 10 bestseller across all genres. The song debuts at No. 12 on the Digital Song Sales chart, missing out on entering the highest echelons of this all-encompassing tally by around 1,200 copies.
Spears' latest triumph adds yet another jewel to her crown when it comes to the Billboard rankings, as it marks her fourth No. 1 hit on the Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales chart. This winning streak started in 2011 with "Till the World Ends" and was followed by "Scream & Shout," another collaboration with Will.I.Am, in 2013. Spears once again clinched the top spot just last year with "Hold Me Close," a duet with the legendary Elton John.
"Mind Your Business" contributes to Spears’s record of a dozen top 10 hits on the Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales chart. This tally has become very familiar to the pop sensation throughout her career. Will.I.Am, on the other hand, has reached the summit of this chart only twice, and both instances have been alongside Spears. His five top 10 victories include notable collaborations with artists such as Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus, as well as another successful partnership with Spears in the form of "It Should Be Easy."
