Ratings: Lifetime’s ‘Britney Ever After’ Biopic Flops

After producing a string of hit biopics on popular female singers (see:  Aaliyah, Whitney Houston, Toni Braxton, etc.), many forecasted Lifetime’s latest effort – a film about the life and times of current pop superstar Britney Spears – would be a homerun.  Well, that was the case until they saw the almost parodic casting and shambolic trailer.

In addition, the pop princess the unauthorized bio was designed to depict gave the movie’s production a royal thumbs down.  The aforementioned (and the unforgiving Twitter slamming it suffered) all added to ‘Britney Ever After’ [which aired February 18th] being a ratings miss for the women’s network.

It’s Britney B*tch!

thatgrapejuice-replay-blackout-britney-spears

Welcome back to TGJ Replay!

Designed much like our ‘Retro Rewind’ and ‘From the Vault’ features, ‘Replay’ is That Grape Juice‘s yet another reflective segment to act as a written quest to re-spin the gems and jams of yesterday. Unlike its TGJ retrospective predecessors, ‘Replay’ looks to dust off and showcase entire albums (and eras) from a library of pop and Urban pop music hits.

This week we go back to black…out.  That’s right, an ode to Britney Spears’ most critically acclaimed effort to date awaits inside:

Retro Rewind: 10 Albums That “Turn 10” In 2017 #FBF

Alicia Keys, Chris Brown, Rihanna, Kanye West, & More Make Our “Faves” List

collage-albums-released-in-2007

Following a year that gifted pop music lovers game and/or career-changing albums like Justin Timberlake‘s ‘FutureSex/LoveSounds,’ Christina Aguilera‘s ‘Back To Basics,’ Beyonce‘s ‘BDay,’ Amy Winehouse‘s ‘Back To  Black,’ Ciara‘s ‘The Evolution,’ and Fergie‘s ‘The Dutchess,’ 2007 had some big shoes to fill.

For many of the artists who stood to the challenge (see:  Britney Spears, Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige, Kanye West, Jay Z, etc.) the results may not have matched the commercial response of their previous efforts (or collectively those of the big named releases the year prior), but critically the class of 2007 wielded what many consider some of their (if not their) best work(s) to date.

As we kick off 2017, let’s flashback to 2007 to ode 10 game and/or career-changing albums that turned 10 this year.  Your gateway to feeling “old” awaits below:

alicia-keys-thatgrapejuice-flop-britney-spears-billboard-2016-year-review

Scribbled in history books for some good and not-so-good reasons, 2016 brought with it some of modern music’s most memorable moments.  Now, as the year draws to a close, TGJ is reflecting on 31 moments that rocked – and to some degree shaped – the Urban and Pop musical landscape as we know it.

Now, we’ll reflect on the collection of albums and singles whose barks were certainly bigger than their bites.  For, considering the hype that preceded them, great expectations were placed on their respective commercial performances.

Sadly, they failed to meet them…

Chart Check [Billboard Hot 100]: Britney Spears’ ‘Slumber Party’ Makes Disappointing Debut

Sizzling Tune Slept On By Music Lovers

britney-tinashe-thatgrapejuice-billboard-hot-100

While the likes of Bruno Mars, The Weeknd, and Ariana Grande all saw impressive sales and streaming boosts post their American Music Awards performances (November 20), pop princess Britney Spears – whose latest single ‘Slumber Party’ was released the same weekend of the telecast – unfortunately cannot boast the same.

In fact, the hoopla around the awards is exactly what many are blaming for the failure of Spears’ otherwise highly anticipated release (featuring Tinashe).  And, just as we reported here, ‘Slumber’s worrying response on digital charts didn’t exactly spell hopeful for the ‘Glory’ gem.

Now, with the officially refreshed charts available, we’re saddened to report we were right. Tuck in below to find out where it and all of your other favorites from the day landed on this week’s refreshed TGJ Chart Check:

Sadly for Britney Spears, recent album ‘Glory’ enjoyed a chart and single run that was anything but triumphant.

Indeed, though praised for finally injecting authentic “cool” into Brand Britney, sales have been limp and interest waned.

Thankfully for fans of the singer, it appears more newness is on the way.

If iTunes receipts are anything to judge by, Britney Spears and Tinashe fans are apparently snoozing on the divas’ duet, ‘Slumber Party.’

The tune – the latest lifted from Spears ill-fated 9th opus ‘Glory’ – saw its buzz reach a feverish pitch when its sexy, ‘Eyes Wide Shut’-inspired accompanying music video was unveiled.  That buzz, thanks to the AMAs and more, has quickly cooled and quelled after just three days.
