Well, the very same release date –Monday, January 10- the song has garnered the highest number of U.S. radio plays in one day.
Not only that: The song has immediately topped the digital sales charts as soon as it was available.
A spokesperson for radio analysts Musicrunch says, “Top 40 outlets across the country immediately put Hold It Against Me in rotation and received instant-reaction airplay at America’s most-influential stations including Z100 and WXRK in New York and KIIS and KAMP in Los Angeles.”
The track has been involved in some controversy lately: The Bellamy Brothers are a bit concerned with Britney Spears and they accused her of ripping off their 1979 hit “If I said you had a beautiful body, would you hold it against me?”
