Image Credit: Kevin Mazur/WireImage.comBillboard is projecting that Britney Spears‘ new single, “Hold It Against Me,” will likely become the 18th song to debut at No. 1 since their Hot 100 chart began keeping track in 1958. As we reported last week, “Against Me” has been getting a lot of love at radio and was immediately thrown into rotation at huge stations when it was released last Monday. It also shot up to the top spot on iTunes’ singles chart quickly.

I didn’t exactly give it the best review after I first heard it. But with a No. 1 debut imminent, the people have obviously spoken. What is it about this song you love so much, Britney fans? Do you expect “Against Me” to be No. 1 when the singles chart is released this Thursday? Let us know in the comments section.
