Britney Spears

It's Too Early To Tell

Britney‘s comeback single, Gimme More may NOT debut in the Billboard Hot 100 after all and if it does, it will be a low entry, a well-placed music industry insider tells
Here’s what we’re hearing!
Gimme More is being played on 19 stations around the country, which is typical for a superstar record in its first few days.
This airplay is not near enough to get her a debut on next weeks’ HOT 100.
HERE is the airplay tracking info.
KSMB-FM in Lafayette, LA, near Spears hometown of Kentwood, has played the song more than any other station in the country- A LOT more!
We are also hearing that the 2 most IMPORTANT stations in the country (Z100 in NY and KIIS FM in LA) are giving it “curiosity play” just because Brit is a star AND because JIVE gave them the single before any other station, hoping that the “exclusive” would create some buzz.
Some stations are apparently getting Negative feedback on the song. Listeners are wondering why the stations are playing the record.
BOTTOM LINE … We will NOT know if this single is a hit or flop until 2 weeks from now, to see see if AFTER RESEARCH they are still playing the song AND to see if ANYONE buys it when released!
Good luck, B!
