Britney Makes & Breaks Records With Femme Fatale

| Filed under: Music MinuteBritney Spears


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.



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!

    We are not in 2008, why u always put in the light something negative??? Yhe album debuted number ONE, nothing more to add. Al Cesar lo que es del Cesar.

    FF is a much stronger record than Circus, the record sales out the gate are not spectacular but they will hold steady for longer in the coming weeks and months whereas Circus tapered off quickly.

    Perez, it is Barbra Streisand and Madonna that have more #1 albums than Brit. Not Celine.

    "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)" Hey fatback, that's passive aggressive bullying coupled with your complete sarcastic comments about how much you love her.

    Best dance record of the year!

    Re: VictoriaLabelle – He bashes her while congratulating her. I know. Mario doesn't make sense. He's trying to project a "I'm not a bully" persona, but deep down he's still a bully. He think he's hiding it but saying a few nice things, but somehow sneaks an insult in there.

  8. 8

    Too bad she didn't write or produce a thing on it… She's a phoney.

  9. 9

    Only Celine & Madonna? Barbra Streisand has more #1s than both of them, and she accomplished this in 5 different decades.

  10. 10

    Congrats Max Martin and Dr. Luke. You did it again!! :)

  11. 11

    Even though he forced himself to congratulate The Legendary Britney Spears, deep down inside it was tearing him apart. I know it hurts him that Britney is still successful and not even Gaga can get in her way. And it hurts him that Lady Gaga wont ever break these records. Face it Perez Gaga ain't the biggest thing. Isn't it funny that till this day she doesn't have a number one album?!?! She will finally debut at number one with "Born This Way" and that is because she ripped-off Madonna's hit Express Yourself!!

    Bow to Britney Spears!! She is the Queen of Pop!!!

  12. 12

    um perez isn't making this about himself..don't know why you are! congrats britney. hope everything in your life is coming together like you deserve :) ps like the song too!!!

  13. 13

    Regardless of if you like her or not, you're talking about her, you know who she is. She's an icon there is NO denying it. She's a force and a pretty big one at that. This is a record not even lady gaga can beat.

  14. 14

    Re: ToxicBoy07
    Congrats for being the first to bring up GaGa in a non-GaGa related post, but to stay on topic with you, Lady GaGa doesn't have a #1 album? It actually went #1 in numerous countries. Try thinking outside your small little world.

  15. 15

    britney has had #1s for 3 seperate decades? um pretty sure she hasnt been producing music for 30 years perez…

  16. 16

    I guess you are seeing this as "half full" there Perez…

  17. 17

    No accounting for taste, or the love of real music. I can't believe how many people like Fake Auto-Tuned Computer generated music. What's wrong with real talent, perhaps playing an instrument? In a market like this Milli Vanilli would kill!
    It's a shame in such a depressed economy people are being sold such crap for music. A bigger shame that they buy it!

    how much she pay ya this time mario?

  20. 20

    Re: Annie Marie Gibson – She had #1 album IN three separate decades not FOR three decades. 90', 00', and 10' Try reading it before u speak.

  21. 21

    bout time u acknowledged this!

  22. 22

    woo! i bought the album, it's certainly #1 material. and if it wasn't for the damn leaks it probably would of sold 500k

  23. 23

    Gaga's fame monster Did HORRIBLE first week and debuted at #5 so shut up perez.

    Re: LizardKinG – "Sinatra didn't write a song, Garth Brooks barely wrote anything," songwriter Ryan Tedder from OneRepublic, who also wrote tracks for Femme Fatale, tells THR. "I love that Britney does that. She knows where she is, and she shows up to the studio and says 'What am I singing today guys? Okay, cool! Let me look at it.'"She's not trying to… Sinatra didn't write a song, Garth Brooks barely wrote anything, George Strait has had I think 51 No. 1's and he has yet to write a song. Rascal Flatts are one of the biggest country acts in the world, and all of their hits are written by other people. So to me it's whatever, be thankful for what you have,” he continues.Heather Bright, who wrote songs for Femme Fatale, also defended Britney for having no co-writing credits on the new album."I would just like to address one thing! The media is talking trash about how Britney didn’t write any of the songs on her album … HELLO! Wake up everybody! NONE OF THESE ARTISTS WRITE THEIR OWN SONGS!!!!!!"Valid points. Actors do not write the scripts for the movies they star in! But, I think some of the frustration comes from having albums where Britney did co-write songs, to not having any at all.

    Perez writes: "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"

    ^^^Once again, you're wrong! I think you're forgetting Mariah Carey?? Moron.

  26. 26

    Perez wirtes: "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!"

    ^^^ Liar!! Fake!!! You used to write the most awful and vile things about her. Perez. are this F'ng stupid to think no one will notice that you're now trying to play nice when you were once a vile, nasty pig? People notice ya' fake! That is why YOU are HATED!

  27. 27

    If this was CaCa there'd be infinite amounts of exclamation points. Lulz flop blogger.

  28. 28

    Re: Ivybby – Of course there would be more exclamation points, he loves Lady Gaga and thinks Britney Spears is just 'alright' …."flop blogger".. he does plenty worse to be called out on besides not containing his excitement for another Max Martin album.

  29. 29

    Considering the amount of people who illegally download and the fact her full album leaked a week before it release, her numbers are damn good.

  30. 30

    Re: SlaveMeh – You're right, and same for Elvis Presley. He didn't write his own songs either, and he's among the artists with the most #1s of all time.

  31. 31

    Re: OriginalRecipe – And lady gaga would be nothing without redone!! Do you really want to go there E-thug!!

  32. 32

    Re: SlaveMeh – That may be true, considering how amazing RedOne is… but at least Lady Gaga wrote the lyrics, and sings them live… Elvis didn't right his songs, like the gentleman above mention. But he did sing, dance, and play guitar. Elton John is a horrible lyricist and has all of his lyrics written by someone else, but he makes the music and sings it and plays Piano very well. Everyone has their specialty and their weakness, but Britney Spears doesn't do ANY of it! she doesn't write the lyrics, write the music, sing it live, play an instrument… she is cute but in reality just NOT a good musician! (I like some of her songs don't we all, but I wouldn't accredit her for them)…… And also, I'm not an E-Thug, I'm just pop music fan with really long work days. I enjoy arguing with y'all. Nobody else I know cares enough about Britney or Gaga too argue. lol thanks for providing me the social charity I need to make it through my day. (don't tell me I'm being pathetic, I already beat you to it, lol)

  33. 33

    u cant say something positive about her without throwing some negative shit all over the place right?

  34. 34

    Britney is cute,she deserves her fame….unlike Gaga,who is on minute 13 of her 15 minute fame

  35. 35

    Re: SlaveMeh – I get that completely and you make a valid point, but you forget something else: Sinatra could sing live and act really well, which explains why he won the Oscar. I'm not a fan of people who can't sing or write their own songs. Britney is well known for miming AND for not writing her own music. I am a fan, but I'm calling a spade a spade, she's a guilty pleasure and nothing more.

  36. 36

    Re: OriginalRecipe – Thank you! Guilty pleasure and nothing more!

  37. 37

    Re: OriginalRecipe – elton john is BRILLIANT.. and if he has other people write his songs how fo you know hes a "horrible lyricist?" dont ever talk about elton john and britney fuckin spears in the same breath. britney is absolute trash.

  38. 38

    Re: Annie Marie Gibson – um, she released albums in the 1990's, 2000's and now the new decade, the 2010's…thats a span of three decades dimwit.

  39. 39

    Re: LizardKinG – You do know Frank Sinatra barely wrote anything he sang right?

  40. 40

    Re: OriginalRecipe – LOL you are so odd…..

  41. 41

    Re: SlaveMehRe: Kelly Jesberger
    If you twats had half a brain, you'd realize 1) Britney shouldn't ever be compared to people like Elvis and Sinatra, and 2) Sinatra and Elvis were master interpreters of song. They could take someone's song and make it sound like it WAS written by them. Not only do Britney's songs sound like they could be sung by anyone, they're now starting to sound just like everyone's.

    Re: Baron87Re: pearlchavezRe: OriginalRecipe – Ohhh please dont give me that bullshit!! The facts are the facts!

  43. 43

    Re: SlaveMeh
    You would know facts if they fucked you up the ass!

  44. 44

    Re: Baron87 – don't you mean "wouldn't know facts"? #fail

  45. 45

    at least that fat motherfucker realize who's the queen… perez i was so close to like you because of your honesty and sincerety in this post but as soon as i read this "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)" it makes me still want to hate you more you jealous bitch. but its good you recognize whose the queen and this album is the best album in 2011 so for those of you that haven't gotten femme fatale go get it you wont regret it. GO BUY FEMME FATALE THE BEST ALBUMMMMMMMM IN HISTORYY

    Re: Ben LeBrun
    I forgot I was addressing Britney fans. I didn't think I was talking to geniuses who worried so much about grammar. I'm glad it made you giddy inside for pointing out a typo. I'm sure it was the highlight of your week.

  47. 47

    Re: Baron87 – It wasn't really grammatical. It was more about content. It changed the whole meaning of what you said. rofl…just sayin, chill out. TEEHEE :D

  48. 48

    Re: sunandsand – I never said he isn't brilliant. I said it's known that he is not a good lyricist so he has Bernie Taupin write his music. (yes I had to Wiki it to spell the name, but I really did know that information. Think before you post, dummy.

  49. 49

    Re: SlaveMeh – Oh please, you didn't present any facts. All you did was tell us a bunch of country artist who don't write songs either. Useless information! lol

  50. 50

    Re: OriginalRecipe – They are the facts most artist do not write there own music not just country artist but even stars like cher and bette midler and all the greats did not write there own music!!!! Im done with you i think your alittle 13 year old who dont know shit!!!

  51. 51

    Re: Baron87 – Looks like you dont know the facts!! BLOW ME!!

  52. 52

    I love that you try to make it sound like you love Brit but your post is full of jabs. Get over yourself. Theres life beyond Lady Gaga. Her new songs a Madonna rip off, so get over yourself.

  53. 53

    Re: SlaveMeh – I already responded to this… see comment 32. THEY actually sing and play music.

    Re: BritneyQueen90 – I wouldn't call it jealousy, Brintey's lifestyle is a little out of my league. If we set our standards as high as a her, wouldn't we all be jealous and depressed?

  59. 59

    Re: OriginalRecipe – WOW you actually made an intelligent comment! Of course Godney's life is out of your league, that's so very true! You can't even think about being like her and breaking so many records, winning that much money and stuff… BUT if it's NOT jealousy, then STOP commenting 5 times in EVERY post about her… it makes you look like you have no life, i don't go to CaCa's post to comment, i don't even bother…

    First of all, I am a Brit fan, and wish nothing but the best for her. But this album…my gosh, horrible. Absolutely terrible. It's such a shame too, because I really want to love her music. But lets be real…the album is so over-processed it's practically unbearable to listen to. But as we know, she will remain number 1 no matter how bad her music is. She has a loyal fan base and has cemented herself into pop legacy. At this point girlie is on cruise control! She can do no wrong in today's music industry (of poor quality). I've noticed there are more and more songs from the 90s-early 2000s being uploaded onto my ipod which does not bode well for today's music. And I'm sure I am not alone ;-)
