"1...2...3 days until the premiere of my new video, but don't stress," she wrote on BritneySpears.com. "I will be sending out lots of pics and clips for the next 3 days."
Spears has been teasing fans with "3" video news for a while now, posting pictures and details from the clip's set on her Twitter and Web site. "I am so happy y'all love it because I do this all for you," she tweeted October 14. "I can't wait till you see the video!" The week before, she informed her followers, "2nd day shooting my 3 video in LA with Diane Martel. Lot's of new choreography from Tone & Rich. It's gonna be hot!"
Spears also took to Twitter to thank her fans for making her new track an instant hit. "I want to thank my fans for making '3' the #1 song on the Billboard Hot 100," she tweeted. "I am truly blessed with the greatest fans in the world."
With "3," Spears is the first artist to break onto the singles chart at #1 since Taylor Hicks did it three years ago, and she's the first non-"American Idol" alum to pull off that feat since Lauryn Hill broke into the Hot 100 with "Doo Wop (That Thing)" in 1998.
