Britney Spears has kept quiet since wrapping up her Circus Tour in 2009, but the pop-princess is once again storming the charts and reminding the pop industry she is a forced to be reckoned with.

“Hold It Against Me,” the first single from Spears’ seventh studio album “Femme Fatale,” was released on Jan. 11 and immediately shattered records.

Debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, it set the record for most radio plays in one day, broke the record for the largest spin-increase in a single week, and sold 411,000 digital copies which is the highest debut sales for a female artist. The single also hit No. 1 on iTunes in 19 different countries. A music video for “Hold It Against Me” will premiere on Feb. 19. Until then, Spears’ management has been releasing short clips every day before its release.

Fans and the media continue to speculate on what the she might have in store for her greatly anticipated follow up to the wildly successful “Circus.”

According to executive producers Max Martin and Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald, fans should expect a return to the slightly edgier, more electronic touch of her critically-acclaimed fifth studio album “Blackout.”

According to Rolling Stone magazine, “Blackout” was “possibly the most influential pop album of the last five years.”

“Femme Fatale” will be released on March 29. Britney took to her twitter account and expressed her excitement with her upcoming work.

“I’m almost done with my new album and it will be coming out this March. I AM IN L-O-V-E WITH IT!” Spears’ management has also stated to multiple bloggers like Perez Hilton that the singer is ready to go all out to promote the album with a “major TV event.” In the meantime, she is busy with album photo shoot and setting up promotions.

There will be deluxe and standard editions available for purchase and  additional songs featured on the deluxe package. Spears’ fans have been waiting for these singles since her last  CD.

Fans have been so enthusiatic about the CD that they have been leaking any and every leaks thatseem credible. “Circus” re-established Britney Spears as the “pop princess,” but the pressure is on for her to repeat that success.
