Britney Spears obtains her first #1 album on ARIA Charts

After twelve years of remaining amazing, Britney Spears has lots to smile about as she has shown her critics that she still has staying power. The pop princess has achieved the feat of obtaining her first number one album on the Australian charts with “Femme Fatale”. Not only has it debuted at number one, but it has gone gold its first week selling over 35,000 copies.

The Holy Spearit is also on course to debut in the top three of the UK albums chart. The singer is expected to obtain her sixth number one debut on the Billboard 200 with a range of 275,000 to 300,000 copies its first week. If this happens, Spears will be tied for the third-most number one albums among Mariah Carey and Janet Jackson. Only Babra Streisand (nine number ones) and Madonna (seven number ones) have earned more number one albums.

Spears' last studio release, 2008's "Circus," blasted in at number one with 506,000 copies, led by the Billboard Hot 100 number one single "Womanizer." "Femme" was preceded by the Hot 100 number one debuting single "Hold It Against Me" while its second single, "Till the World Ends," rebounds 23-22 on the Hot 100 this week, already peaking at number nine.

I’m really happy for Britney’s success, but I expected the album to sell more. She is one of the only pop acts to continue to churn out amazing pop music and always makes pop music that is different. It’s a pity that she has no more drive left to perform like she used to and her fans can see it. I mean the album leaked almost two weeks before the release date, the “Hold It Against Me” music video disappointed with its hyped up dancing and Britney waited to promote the album only during the album release week. I hope that she continues to promote this album and not promote it like she did with “Circus”, when she performed for a week then toured. This album is congested with hits.

Expect to see a review of the album during the week. I’m so busy that I forgot to write one but the album is fantastic and worth buying, although she has no credits.
