Ever since the new [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Britney Spears[/lastfm] single, “Hold It Against Me,” leaked onto the internet Monday morning, we expected it to be an instant hit.  Now we’re getting word that the popstar shattered a major record for her latest efforts.

The single shot to the top of iTunes almost instantly, but that’s not what’s making waves in the radio industry today.

[lastfm link_type=”similar_artist_radio”]Britney Spears[/lastfm] broke the previous record for most spins for a first or one-day (that means how many times radio stations have played her song). “Hold It Against Me” had 595 spins according to BDS and 619 according to Mediabase, two of the top companies that study the industry. Kevin McCabe, a radio analyst, commented:

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.

So clearly us radio geeks have a love affair with BritBrit, but are you digging the song? Listen to the song again below and let us know how you feel!
