They're not bad. They're not great, either.
Industry sources project that Britney Spears latest venture, Femme Fatale, will sell somewhere in the neighborhood of 275,00 to 300,000 units in its first week in America. If they are correct, the disc will surely be dubbed the highest-selling album of the week, but it is a far cry from her former glory.
Consider that Circus sold an impressive 505,000 units in its first week and that was only two-and-a-half years ago! By comparison, this would be a disaster!
Shame! We love the new album, but there are just too many factors working against it, we fear. The fact that it leaked weeks ago sure doesn't help, combined with the fact that there was literally NO promotion for it before this week. Add on the fact that there was some really bad buzz about her much-hyped GMA performance and even worse buzz around her tour…this is just a bummer.
But we will say this…we encourage you to get the album, if you haven't already OR if you have from some other, illegal means. Brit-Brit needs the support of her fans to prove its worth going through all the trouble. Right?
