Britney & Will.i.am's "Scream & Shout" Video

Will.i.am and Britney Spears‘ recent club-pop banger “Scream & Shout” may not have made much of an impact on the Hot 100 (so far it’s floundering at #3 on the Bubbling Under chart), but at least it’s finding some success on iTunes: For the singles chart in the week ending 12/3, the song snagged the #1 spot — probably buoyed by the highly GIF-able video for the single, which dropped last week. Never doubt the power of Britney’s stans, although whether that portends Billboard chart success for “Scream & Shout” remains to be seen.

Also finding success on iTunes at #2 was 50 Cent‘s Eminem and Adam Levine-assisted “My Life,” which has yet to make an impact on the Hot 100. As Britney herself would probably say: It’s iTunes, bitch. Read the full chart info below.

  1. Fail

    Do Idolator editors understand Billboard charts at all? The same day Billboard reveals “Scream and Shout” topped the digital songs tally for the week (meaning it will place in the Top 20 for sure), Idolator says it’s been “floundering” on the Hot 100. The week Billboard reflected this “floundering,” it was pretty low on the iTunes chart as well.

    Success on iTunes chart one week = success on Billboard Hot 100 the next week.

    it;s #12 in the Hot 100… check your facts bitch!
