“Do Somethin'” will be Britney’s 18th single in the UK and I think will chart pretty highly considering the airplay the song is already getting (currently at #37 in 95.8 Capital FM’s airplay chart) and isn’t facing much strong competition from other artists that week.
Here are that week’s releases:
Akon – Locked Up
Anastacia – Heavy On My Heart/Underground Army
Annie – Heartbeat
Elvis Presley – (Marie’s The Name) His Latest Flame
Girls Aloud – Wake Me Up
Idlewild – Love Steals Us From Loneliness
Iron and Wine – Woman King EP
Kaiser Chiefs – Oh My God
Kaptain Black – Drone The Queen Bee (7” only)
Maximo Park – Apply Some Pressure
New Found Glory – I Don’t Wanna Know
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – Get Ready For Love
Nine Black Alps – Shot Down
Rakes – Retreat
Tears For Fears – The Closest Thing To Heaven
The Earlies – Bring It Back Again
The Frames – Fake
Tokyo Dragons – What The Hell
The only real competition there are Girls Aloud, but they won’t acheive number 1 as the song has already recieved critism for its lyrics concerning alchohol abuse, which will prevent a few sales from little girls. The other factor is that Britney’s tracks that are a bit ‘out there’ and aren’t really like anything out in the charts, tend to do well e.g. Toxic, Everytime & I’m A Slave 4 U.
UPDATE: It has now climbed to #33!
