CHART SPOTLIGHT. Britney Spears fans all over the world are trying to get their hands on coveted Femme Fatale tickets for the upcoming tour. Expect busy days for Ticketmaster when Britney goes on tour. Following her recent duet with Rihanna on “S&M,” a third track is issued from her latest set.
Produced by the Swedes Shellback and Max Martin, “I Wanna Go” has already bowed on the Hot 100 as a digital download track off Femme Fatale.
