Projected Sales For Britney's Femme Fatale Are Disappointing!

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?

    I know a lot of people that are big fans that downloaded the illegal copy. I bought it though because I know how important these sales numbers and the royalties to the artist are in order to keep them making the music that I like to listen to hear.

    I love this album more than circus. Different strokes for different folks.

    I hope people realise that her music suck these days. It's pretty sad actually.

    THEY ARE ONLINE YOU MORON!! DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE HIM. SORRY IF YOUR LITTLE RETARD BRITNEY JUST DOESN'T HAVE "IT" ANYMORE.

    Even though I already downloaded the tracks I wanted [which were, like, 10 out of the 12] before the album came out, I kind of want to buy the album from the store. I want Britney to do well and I want to support her, especially in today's music climate. You can talk shit about Britney all you want, but at the end of the day she has put out and is continuing to put out some pretty fucking good pop songs. I wish her the best!

    The reason that the album sales are "low" is because people just buy their favorite songs off iTunes which have hurt the album sales dramatically these past years. The album is good but people want the old Britney, the one that her management didn't fuck up with autotune- Her reason voice (BOMT up to Britney)! Since "In The Zone" all of her songs have been autotuned, not that they are not good but…The reason I haven't purchased the album yet is because I am waiting for the Japanese edition. Her stupid ass management always gives the rest of the world extra bonus tracks and since I am a Britney superfan, I want the best…

    IS THAT DISAPPOINTING? HOW DISAPPOINTING WERE CACA'S SALES FOR "THE FLOP MONSTER"? 176K… NOW, THAT SUCKS! OH, WAIT… BUT AS YOU SAID, BRITNEY ALWAYS HAS HUGE SALES… AND #1 ALBUMS, CACA HASN'T HAD ONE YET AND HER SALES ARE NEVER IMPRESSIVE… I GET IT NOW… WELL AT LEAST IT WILL BE #1! :D AND I THINK SHE WILL BE SELLING LIKE 550K ;)

    Femme Fatale is the most amazing pop-dance album in history. Trust me!
    It received 4 out 5 stars from Rolling Stone and positively reviewed by critiques. It's a hidden agenda for Perez with this post. He wants to make sure Femme Fatale fails like Bionic. Seriously, i really doubt Gaga and her management buying Born This Way single for them-self to make sure it spend 6 weeks on Hot 100. Born This Way is a ripped-off but entire of Femme Fatale is fresh, brilliant and amazing. I don't know why Perez always like this, but, honestly I'm not a big fan of Britney. But after listened to this album, this is her best album and it's hard to top this project in future. Each song capable to be presented as a single! Seriously, all songs are greatly amazing. I bought my copy and the album is selling out everywhere. The projected number sometimes ridiculous. Last time Circus also projected to be sold around 300k but ended-up to be like over 500k! Femme Fatale is one of the greatest pop album in 2011. Go buy it now! You'll be surprised with amazing and brilliant songs!

    i like only one song 'i wanna go' and i'm NOT buying it, cause brit brit needs no support and labels got enough money already. suck it interscope!

    Not surprised, it's her worst album yet, she just borrowed her voice to it. Her other songs rocks. What happened to Britney? She sang good songs before, why did they stop writing good songs to her? Because I think these songs sucks, I really hope she sings live so I have one more reason to see her. I would love to see her again, just wish she will show any charisma (she didn't last time) and talks to her fans more on stage. And of course, sing live!!! Her dance isn't that hard. I've seen a lot of people dance more than her and sing live at the same time.

    Ok, its clear nobody knows NOTHING about the music industry here. Look at sales of katy perrys Teenage Dream album..compared to her last. Or Lil Wayne latest compared to his last, Lady gaga 1st compared to the fame/monster or Carrie Underwoods 1st compared to her latest EVERY ARTIST IS SUFFERING FROM from illegal downloading. Its not just Britney…Every artist who will put out an album this year ( and has in the past ) is going to see a STEEP SALES DECLINE …the only ARTIST IT HASNT AFFECTED IS TAYLOR SWIFT …go taylor

    PEREZ do you have ears? She did not lypsynch on GMA. MTV however…. that was partly lypsynch. She sounded completly different on GMA MORON. Those who say she lypsynched should really learn what it is!

    well i think the album sells will not be that bad she sells better than other artists and all artist had poor album sells during thier career even madonna so thier is no deal but the problem is this girl is not giving something new she was cool in her earlier carrer days but now i think people dont have a huge passion of her any more only they like to watch her and sadly she is not dancing like before but her album is catchy so it will sales
