will.i.am, Britney land another top 10 on the Hot 100

will.i.am & Britney Spears Enter Top 10

After five weeks between Nos. 12 and 15, the superstar pairing of will.i.am and Britney Spears results in a top 10 rank at last, as "Scream & Shout" storms 12-8 on the Hot 100. The duet pushes 9-4 on Hot Digital Songs (203,000, down 29%) and passes 1 million sold to date. It rises 16-11 on On-Demand Songs (668,000, up 26%) and 27-21 on Hot 100 Airplay (46 million, up 21%).

With the song's ascent, will.i.am scores his third solo top 10 and first as a lead artist. He'd reached the top tier as a guest on Flo Rida's No. 9-peaking "In the Ayer" (2008) and Usher's four-week No. 1 "OMG" (2010). He's added 10 top 10s as a member of the Black Eyed Peas for a total of 13 top 10 visits overall. 2013 also brings the lucky 13th top 10 appearance for Spears. She first reached the region the week of Dec. 12, 1998, when her debut single and first of five Hot 100 No. 1s, "...Baby One More Time," climbed 18-9. She'd last populated the top 10 with the No. 7-peaking "I Wanna Go" in summer 2011.
