US Chart Roundup: "Chain Between My Snatch" Is Still #1, Britney's "Work Bitch" Tanks

With Miley Cyrus currently straddling the Hot 100 with "Chain Between My Snatch" yet again, we look to the Top 10 debut of Britney Spears' terrible new single "Work Bitch"...except that it didn't debut in the Top 10. Alas, it only squeaked its way to #12.

According to Billboard, "Flop Bitch" sold 174,000 digital downloads in its first week — a far cry from vastly superior lead Femme Fatale single "Hold It Against Me," which moved 411,000 paid downloads out of the gate in early 2011 and entered the Hot 100 at #1.

Chalk it up to the involvement of toxic demon will.i.am in the song. The good news is that Britney's got a whole album of new material on the way, and surely there's something better lying in wait, right? Oh, wait — will.i.am executive-produced the entire thing.

Better luck next album, Britney.

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Wrecking Ball" - Miley Cyrus *2 weeks*
2. "Roar" - Katy Perry
3. "Royals" - Lorde
4. "Wake Me Up!" - Avicii
5. "Blurred Lines" - Robin Thicke feat. T.I. & Pharrell
6. "Holy Grail" - Jay-Z feat. Justin Timberlake
7. "Hold On, We're Going Home" - Drake feat. Majid Jordan
8. "Applause" - Lady Gaga
9. "Summertime Sadness" - Lana Del Rey & Cedric Gervais
10. "Safe And Sound" - Capital Cities
