“Gimme More” Soars To The Top!

#1 ON BILLBOARD'S HOT DIGITAL SONGS!

In the midst of another trying week in Britney Spears' personal life, she receives some positive professional news as "Gimme More" opens 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.

"Gimme 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.
