Washington, Oct 16 (ANI): Britney Spears is back in business, for her new single “Womanizer” has made a record-breaking leap to top spot on Billboard’’s Hot 100 singles chart.

The song jumped from No.96 to No.1 in the past week and returned Spears to the top of the list for the first time since her 1999 debut single Baby One More Time, reports Conatctmusic.

The unprecedented leap of Womanizer was spurred by first-week download sales of 286,000, the biggest opening week tally by a female artist since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking digital downloads in 2003.

The feat marks the third time in the past two months that the record for the biggest jump to number one has been shattered - rapper T.I. soared 70 spots with his Whatever You Like at the beginning of September (08), and he toppled himself last week when he took his Rihanna duet Live Your Life from 80 to one.
