Despite being on the same label, Pop stars Britney Spears and Chris Brown are set for a March chart showdown. The news comes after Spears’ new LP was confirmed to have pushed back by two weeks today.
Full story after the jump…
Initially set to hit stores on March 15th, Spears’ ‘Femme Fatal’ will now arrive in stores on March 29th – according to Billboard.
The new date puts the singer in direct competition with Jive label-mate Chris Brown, who looks set for a comeback with his latest effort ‘F.A.M.E’. Indeed, Brown has been on quite the roll as of late – notching up hits ‘Yeah 3x’ and ‘Deuces’.
However, with ‘Fatal’s’ lead single ‘Hold It Against Me’ being the worldwide smash that it was, insiders predict the 29 year old will take the top spot – by quite a margin.
Sidebar: Despite official reports of a March 29th release date, Brown himself has declared that ‘F.A.M.E’ will still hit stores on March 22nd. Stay tuned.
