Perhaps it didn't have the opening week that some of her past albums have had, but that doesn't mean that Femme Fatale isn't an ENORMOUS hit for one Miz Britney Spears.
As it was projected, Brit-Brit's latest disk only sold about 278,618 copies in the U.S. It puts Femme Fatale at #1 in its debut week, but it is a far cry from the sales of her last album, Circus. (Over 500K)
This latest rise to #1 has catapulted Britney in the record books on several levels. For one thing, the only other people with more #1 albums than her are Madonna and Celine Dion. If she keeps churning out music, we guarantee she'll beat their records in just a few years.
Furthermore, Britney has had a #1 album in three separate decades and she is the youngest artist to do so. She's also the youngest artist in history to have seven albums debut in the top 2 spots and the ONLY female artist to have 6 albums debut at #1.
In short - BRIT-BRIT IS UNSTOPPABLE!!!!
We're so proud of her and all she's been able to accomplish with this album! We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it and we LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her!
Congrats, girl! You're the fiercest of them all!
