CHART SPOTLIGHT. According to Myspace, the opening track of Britney Spears’ upcoming album Femme Fatale has leaked online. “Till the World Ends” is written by Ke$ha and produced by Max Martin and Dr. Luke. Slated for release later this March, Spears’ latest set will include three tracks from the Swedish songwriter/producer Shellback.
“Till the World Ends” was initially meant for debut next week, but it will be made available via iTunes earlier. Not surprisingly, the track sounds very much like Ke$ha.
Britney Spears’ “Hold It Against Me” rebounds 20-15 on the Swedish single tally, falls 11-12 on the Billboard Hot 100 and drops to No.38 on the UK singles chart.
(Update 13/3): This week, Britney Spears officially climbs 55-21 on the UK singles chart with “Till the World Ends.” The track also sold 117,000 copies in its first week in the UK and debuted at No.20 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week.
