Britney Spears (40) continues to soar: her single with Elton John (75) landed in the top ten almost two weeks after it was released. "Hit Me Closer" peaked at number six on the Billboard Hot 100, making it the singer's first top ten hit in a decade.
For Britney Spears, the party should continue: last week she shared her happiness about how successful her first song was in six years. The track shot to number 1 on the iTunes charts in Germany, the United States and dozens of other countries. On social media, she rejoiced in a video: "Holy shit …! I'm sitting in the bathtub right now and I'm going to have the best day ever!"
