Britney Spears' "Hold It Against Me" is shaping up to be a very big hit. After setting a record for first-day airplay, the single is now tied with Madonna's 1998 hit "Frozen" for the second-highest launch in the Billboard Pop Songs chart's history, eclipsed only by Mariah Carey's "Dreamlover" in 1993.

"Hold It Against Me," which Rolling Stone's Rob Sheffield called "prime Britney" in a four-star review, is currently the top-selling track in the iTunes store.
