Sales Predictions: Britney Spears’ ‘Femme Fatale’ Projected To Underwhelm

Published: Wednesday 30th Mar 2011 by Trent

Despite scoring a record-setting #1 hit with ‘Hold It Against Me’, another top 10 single with ‘Till The World Ends’ and massive media campaigns, Britney Spears’ ‘Femme Fatale’ album is on track to underwhelm. The record may be a guaranteed #1 entry on the Billboard 200 but the expected sales are far below expectations.

‘Femme Fatale’ is projected to enter the chart with 275-300k. These figures represent a stark difference from the 505k that her previous LP, ‘Circus’, garnered in its 1st week in 2008 and much less than R&B singer Adele achieved with her ’21’ album which debuted with 352k earlier this year.

Expect other entries on the lineup to include Whiz Khalifa ‘Rolling Papers’ at #2 with  190-215k, Snoop Dogg’s ‘Doggumentary’ with 45-50k and Mary Marys ‘Something Big’ with 35-40k. Big fat bass? I think not.

Thoughts?

    Britney’s music isn’t the problem… It’s her ability to perform live!!!

  2. yooummaddd March 30, 2011

    has nothing to do with the music, her performances lately are just not cutting it !!

  3. Jesse March 30, 2011

    aww and this album sounds good.

  4. TeamKelly!!! March 30, 2011

    Mary Mary cd is banging in my ears right now!!! YES MA’AM!!!

  5. James March 30, 2011

    Britney is and will always be a force to be reckoned with, but it’s based on her past GLORY days… It’s the same for people like Mariah, who just doesn’t have the same “IT” factor that she once possessed… I’ll continue to support these artists because their track records allow them to work with some of the best producers, writers, etc. in the business, so you know the product will be stellar… BUT the delivery is less than desirable!!!

  6. Topman March 30, 2011

    It’s a good album, but it leaked so far in advance it was bound to be affected. I predict 300k plus

  7. AREIS March 30, 2011

    I’m not surprise by these numbers, which are still good for an artist BUT this is Britney. Unfortunately The album is lacking quality and fulfilled with the same sound all the way through. The Big Fat Bass is hit. And I have not yet seen good live performance from her yet sense her Toxic days.

  13. d March 30, 2011

    Funny how Britney with around 300k sales is considered underwhelming yet all the world appluaded Rihanna’s 206k sales…………Rihanna has far more prominence in music the last 3-4 years and has just about the same promo(if not more)……….and before people come with the ‘well Britney has been in the game since blah blah blah” let’s not forget Rihanna has almost as many CDs out as Brit( 5-7).

  14. Prince&Queen March 30, 2011

    @Life Size Bobble Head Formally known as rhitard lol i like the Aubrey show too!! its soo entertaining. I watch BGC sometimes.

  19. Badd March 30, 2011

    WOWW…that really sucks.
    I definitely expected her to do like 600K
    Especially with the hype she had for HIAM

  20. Prince&Queen March 30, 2011

    I think so is Ashley the 1 that got in2 a fight a got a black eye?

  21. Penelope March 30, 2011

    it just a prediction. an album which leaked with over than 2 weeks.
    That’s impressive for first week sales.
    Last time Circus also predicted for being sold around 250k-300k. her promo will help the sales.
    Can’t wait to see her on Ellen soon.
    Femme Fatale is an amazing album. Seriously great!

  22. Christian March 30, 2011

    I’m a bit shocked by the early predictions of 275-300k. I honestly thought it would pull around what “Circus” sold it’s first week. But it’s still early – So we’ll just have to wait and see

  23. Christian March 30, 2011

    @ PENELOPE – Her Ellen promo has been postponed til further noticed because she was suppose to be on Ellen yesterday and today. 🙁

    Britney,

    Please show us your private parts and beat up a spouse and cut a fool on a journalist. Don’t forget to wear crazy hair. Your album will be successful if you do these things.

    Thanks,

    Chris Brown.

  29. Prince&Queen March 30, 2011

    @TheLifeSize lol she is pretty. I like Char though she pretty too and Nicki lol she jus Ugly and do look like a man i cant stand her!! Her eyes so close together. I need to catch up with some of the episodes.

  30. Ariana March 30, 2011

    Her album is far from a flop but these are truly underwhelming numbers. I bet Britney was hoping for better album sales. I guess she gets what she gives.

  31. James_9481 March 30, 2011

    Wow 275-300k .. The power of Britney I guess!
    She had two flop singles, hardly any promotion, flop video, FLOP PERFORMANCES!! … and she can sell 300k .. Smh.

    Meanwhile Rihanna had two smash #1 singles, performing everywhere(and actualy singing live), 2 hot videos etc and she does 207k! Smh!

    Britney’s success is so underdeserved! She’s a f****** lazy b****! And im glad these figures are way lower than what she’s used to! B**** better keep going down hill!! Big fat flop is the next single… So let’s just watch that one flop too! YASSSSS!!

  47. royalkev March 30, 2011

    This is a little surprising, but 300k is still pretty good. Someone mentioned, Aubrey and I was predicting that she would really be big this year. She reminds me of Brit, but like I said before – Britney has made her mark. She’s sold damn near 100mil, so who cares about the numbers anymore.

    Correct me if i’m wrong, but hasn’t BREEZY been promoting his album since LAST YEAR in every shameless way possible? Brit’s promo trek just REALLY started within the last couple weeks. Sit.

    These are predictions so Im going to wait for the real s***

    And Why do people on this site Love to throw the word FLOP every second *Rolls Eyes*

    All I know is she will be Number soo I’m Happy *Side eye*

  50. Christian March 30, 2011

    @ GangsterA – I so agree with you.

  51. Adelina March 30, 2011

    WOW I expected at least 500,000. why? because it’s BRITNEY and she had so much hype. I would expect over 500,000 for Britney, Taylor, Beyonce, Gaga ect.

    Dont use the “it leaked” excuse because Chris Brown ‘s album leaked, and he had the GMA incident the same day as his release, and bad publicity that week. On Britney’s level this is bad especially when she has everything going for her. This would be great for Rihanna, not someone like Britney.

  52. jj March 30, 2011

    what i noticed since lady gaga arrived in the business she is really trying to destroy the pop divas of early 90s from xtina to britney!

  53. Adelina March 30, 2011

    @Floridagators
    PLEASE. He started promo the week leading to his album release. Those numbers are great for him especially when people said he would never be #1 and would never be successful. The way the stans praise her, she should be able to sell that much just on name alone and extra with promo.

    If Gaga or Bey did these numbers y’all would forever call them a flop. Stop making excuses.

  54. James March 30, 2011

    Mary Mary’s album on the other-hand is STELLAR…

  55. Prince&Queen March 30, 2011

    @TheLifeSize oh lol i started thinkin she announced it on the show that she had down syndrome and stuff since i’ve missed a couple of episodes.

  56. Mari (RIP Dwayne McDuffie) March 30, 2011

    “Funny how Britney with around 300k sales is considered underwhelming yet all the world appluaded Rihanna’s 206k sales…………”

    @D

    That’s because 206K was Rihanna’s best opening week in the US ever, and unlike Rihanna, Britney is supposed to be apart of the “The Trinity,” the elite of the elite. Blackout opened higher than FF, and that was after Britney’s disasterous VMA performance. Britney’s numbers would have been higher had she done really good, live performances earlier than 2 or 3 days before the album release. It will be interesting to see how well Britney’s tour sells.

  60. The Life Size Bobble Head Formally Known as R****** The Goat March 30, 2011

    *MINI*

  61. Christian March 30, 2011

    The numbers that the Hits Daily predicted for “Femme Fatale” was also around the same amount they predicted for “Circus”. And how much “Circus” sold it’s first week. Time will tell

  62. JohnVidal March 30, 2011

    If she performs like this on the charts (it´s only a prediction) is not a flop. 300.000 is not a flop. I just wish she could have a big flop and retire. She was never deserving of being famous in the first place. Untalented is the best word to describe her! Probably not reaching her usual 500.000 is also cos of the constant decrease of album sales. We´ll see for example how Beyonce performs on the charts. Maybe her sales will decrease too. I´m curious

  63. MISHKA March 30, 2011

    People barely buy hard copies those days and her music is straight gym/iphones music. I’ll wait for the itunes numbers.

  64. Mari (RIP Dwayne McDuffie) March 30, 2011

    @Johnvidal

    Britney is a talented entertainer. She makes good pop music, but this era is sloppy and all over the place. I still don’t understand how any of the promo shots and performance looks pertain to the theme of “Femme Fatale.” She’s hasn’t even been wearing white in the performances to match the album cover. Jive isn’t trying to be creative with the sets for her perfomances. So for example, every time Rihanna performed Only Girl, it looked different than the last. So, the Only Girl performance on X-Factor UK looked different than the Only Girl performance on X-Factor Italia and so on and so forth, but despite the tweaks and variations on her costuming and stage show, the Loud theme (red hair, flowers) was still evident. The only thing that changed with Brit’s 3 live performances has been her costume.

  65. S*** March 30, 2011

    WHERE IS @F** KYLE ANYWAY?????

    LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  66. the kiddz March 30, 2011

    I’m sure if her team had a better promotional plan, she would sell much more than that. And the fact that she simply can’t perform anymore is quite the turnoff.

  67. KaVion March 30, 2011

    So, we can expect Chris to be at the Number 3 spot next week?
    Alright, I’ll take that. I mean, at least he was able to achieve his first Number 1 album!

    I guess all the people who said that Britney was coming for Chris should hold their tongue, she sold just about the same amount as him.

    Femme Fatale is nowhere near a flop though. Anything over 100,000 isn’t a flop to me, and for a mega artist, anything over 200,000 isn’t a flop either.

    To Kyle, Lol, IASF sold damn near twice as much as FF in the first week, so you better not dare come for Bey’s numbers ever again. I’m not one to judge off of numbers though anyway.

    I really wanted Britney to EXCEED expectations, but this is nowhere near a flop. It’s safe to say Gaga & Bey will both beat Brit’s debut sales. Gaga will probably have the highest. I won’t be surprised if she goes Plat, first week.

    Congratulations Britney!
    The BB 200 chart is getting some huge competition with all these albums doing well.

  68. KaVion March 30, 2011

    @THE KIDDZ
    Her team thinks she doesn’t need promo. They’re too damn cocky!

  69. I’m a billy goat & Windy is still a man (wendell) March 30, 2011

    Does anyone know when the DIGITAL SELLS FIGURES WILL BE IN FOR THIS WEEK? What are F.A.M.E.’s actual numbers please! Thank you!

    Now on to this hot mess! Her live performances have been dreadful! I am shocked and not sure what’s really going on with her? She is not a strong vocalist and we all can attest to to that but she use to be able to mimic Janet Jackson with the best of them! I hope she pulls it together before she does another perfromance. Are they rushing her to put this CD out?

    Oh well in any event, I’m sure her fans will purchase her CD and her numbers will be soild. I’m purchashing 2 copies of F.A.M.E. for my nieces this week. Wait make that three as my mother has suddenly developed and interest in Chris Brown after watching him on DWTS!

  70. I’m a billy goat & Windy is still a man (wendell) March 30, 2011

    Oh an dmight I add, ary Mary’s CD will also be purchased this week. I love those ladies always upbeat and positive! We ae living in a hateful word ppl get that Kirk Franklin and Mary Mary in your system to chill you out!!! 🙂

  71. Tim March 30, 2011

    Circus was also predicted to open to around 300,000 copies, but actually debuted much higher. I expect more than the predicted number.

  72. Jamie March 30, 2011

    What ya’ll classify as a flop, her team/label might not. You don’t know what their expectations for this project were. They didn’t even over-hype it so it’s whatever. Ya’ll may say flop, but to be quite honest, it’s just another number one album under her belt!!!!! I just call it like it is…

  73. Taylor swifts number 1 fan March 30, 2011

    I hope she does alright, But i think lady gaga will easlier have the best selling album for a female singer this year… i can see her album selling 750,000 in the first week….. while britney, probs will seeling 400,000 which is still great.

  74. Alejandro March 30, 2011

    Oh My Gosh what is your fu**ing Hate against her give her a break.

    @ADELINA and THE LIFE SIZE.
    Chris has been promoting his album since last year. Not in a major media blitz way all the time, but he has been plugging and promoting his album WAYYYYYYYYYYY before it was ready to be released. Let us not even get started on him leaking his own d*** pic (isn’t it funny how he says “Since we talkin about my d***/all of you haters can say hi to it…..and then it magically makes its way online) Stop pretending like your THAT oblivious to that fact.

    As far as twitter…..it’s damn twitter. Just because someone has a lot of followers, DOES NOT mean everyone is a fan and everyone is going to run out and buy an album. A good number of people only follow certain celebs for the sole purpose of BASHING them on a regular basis (*waves at Trentisia*).

    @Kavion

    If Beyonce had s***** promo and performances leading up to the album release, then she would probably only sell 275-300K in the first week as well, perhaps less. Let’s not sit here and pretend that Britney and her team launched this awesome campaign and got lackluster first week sales despite the effort. Britney gave craptastic performances and had next to no promo and still pulled 275-300K. So yeah, Kyle can still come for you and Bey stans with numbers.

BOTH COULDNT EVEN CRACK THE TOP 10 IN THE MAJORITY OF COUNTRIES THEY WERE RELEASED IN EXCEPT THE USA.. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  83. theman March 30, 2011

    Lets clear something up. 300k is still great, but i expected her to sell about 400 to 500k. Her performances have effected her sells. She needs to step her performance level back up. The passion seems to be lacking.

    As far as Chris is concerned he’s garnered major media attention. He was all over the media. He’s released about 3 singles before his album. Britney doesn’t perform that often. Also, physical copies sell far more than digital copies. I want her to do well. Britneys very likeable. As far as Rihanna. Y’all are still trying??? Turn the damn page already. She couldn’t sell 250k during the holiday season. Nextttttttttttt …………

    Rihanna fans keep bringing up worldwide sells, because it’s not cutting it in the states. Congrats to Britney for another number one.

    Mariah/Britney have that “It” factor because they just do. Mariahs sells were toe to toe with Rihanna’s and that was a holiday album. Know your facts. She went gold in less than 2 months.

    FROM BILLBOARD.COM……..

    A sixth No. 1 album would place Spears in rare air, tying her for the third-most No. 1s among women with Mariah Carey and Janet Jackson. Only Barbra Streisand (nine No. 1s) and Madonna (seven) have earned more No. 1s.

    UR FAVES COULD NEVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BRITNEY IS COMING FOR BARBRA STREISAND AHAHAHAHAHAHAH

    OK SO this is very low, to say she is BRITNEY SPEARs, come on, i was thinking over 500k just like circus, No doubt, GAGA is going to sell a million the first week..she is the biggest star right now….i can honestly say i dont know about beyonce, if she comes out with something hot, then it will blow up, if not, then i predict the same sales britney has in her first week….

    Beyonce was never a first week seller like britney,…Dangerously In Love 317 went on to sell 8.5 world wide…….BDAY 541K, went on to sell 6 mill world wide….IASF 481K, went on to sell 7 million world wide………

  92. iloveXtina March 30, 2011

    She needs better promo, she can’t depend on her name to sell albums anymore, Xtina learned that lesson as well. Besides, these are first week sales let’s wait until the era is completely over and compare her album sales with other stars.

  93. TASHA March 30, 2011

    B**** THAT 200K IN THE STATES

    YOU MAD? LMFAOOOOOOOO

  94. MusicFan March 30, 2011

    Well this sucks… I’m not a Britney fan, but she should have gotten a number one with this album. It deserves it. Not just that, but she needs to be have a number already cuz we all know Gaga will come and snatch her wig, so she should get a number one now while she can.

    She’s been underwhelming as far as sales. I mean Hold It Against Me was number one just for like two weeks on iTunes and for a week on the Hot 100 and shows no signs of coming back. Idk why because that song is great. And Till The World Ends didn’t hit number one anywhere. I remember EVERYONE saying oh Britney gonna snatch Gaga’s wig, and right now, from what I’m seeing, I don’t see ANYONE snatching Gaga’s wig. Born This Way after almost two months is getting into the top 5 after being number one for 6 weeks. I don’t think it’ll fall of the top ten of Billboard until May when her next single Judas comes out. Which by the way, will slay E.T., and whatever Britney’s next single is. Oh and RiRi, Idk… S&M is great, and is having good success. NOt groundbreaking success, but a fair amount.

    Who cares how much she sells? thats not important its the tours thats important because thats whats bringing home the bacon and she will definately be making loads of money from it so I doubt she is worried about sales of the album. Also shes already sold over 100million albums it dont matter if she cant sell that much anymore shes already proved herself the same like Mariah Madonna and Christina. BTW Adele is not a “R&B singer” nothing about her music is R&B her music is more pop/soul

  96. KYLE March 30, 2011

    THE ONLY ARTISTS WHO HAVE MORE NUMBER 1 ALBUMS THAN BRITNEY ARE MADONNA AND BARBRA STREISAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    WHAT DO THE HATERS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THAT??????? LMFAOOOO

  97. MusicFan March 30, 2011

    Heaven knows, I love Bey, but honestly. She’s just been out of the loop for a LONG ASS TIME. She better come out with something hot that blows up fast. Not just that, but It’s very rare that I see Bey fans showing any commitment to her. Single Ladies was mostly fueled because it was a hot track and it’s video became a pop culture phenomenon. I mean, all the singles after single ladies underwhelmed. It’s funny I Am… Sasha Fierce only had two number one hits if I’m not mistaken. Gaga will surely snatch everyone’s wigs. Now when it comes to ACTUAL album quality, I don’t know yet because I’ve only heard Born This Way and a bunch of remixes from Gaga and have heard nothing but rumors, dates tossed around, and images from Beyonce, so honestly I don’t know what she’s up to so I can’t compare. I hope her sound is good. So far I like where Gaga is going with this disco/house/techno/rock thing she has working for her. I heard that Bey’s album will have party music(which leads me to believe will be dance/house music) and some combination of many different genres including older genres and put together as one production. IDK yet, but so far Gaga’s winning.

  98. MusicFan March 30, 2011

    Lol@Kyle…

    Haha. listen boo, just a few months ago you were talking about how Britney was gonna slay everyone. Now here we are…

    -Two singles out that underwhelmed and may I say were SNATCHED and when I say snatched I mean SNATCHED by Born This Way. Which I also recall you and many other Brit fans saying would flop.

    -Album is now out and is projected to underwhelm. (Born This Way will most likely annihilate this too, same goes for Bey’s new album.)

    Just filling you in on the info here cuz you seem to be misinformed my friend. And I’m not trynna come at Britney, i’m simply stating the solid facts! Please don’t hold it against me…

  99. Adele March 30, 2011

    Rihanna is at 3.5 million WW after almost five months. Adele is over 3 million WW after just 2 months, and still selling over 300,000 weekly…Who mad.

  100. gio88 March 30, 2011

    she deserves it.I hope she will flop .Maybe she will learn how to perform and how not to do a generic electro pop album.

    @ThaMan

    Since when is Loud not cutting it in the States? Last I checked, Loud yielded 2 #1’s, 3 top 5’s, a Grammy, and over a million copies sold in the US in 3 months. Rihanna fans have no reason to be be mad about her opening week sales. Her opening week sales have only increased with every era. The only ones shook over not having a #1 album in the US are her haters. Neither one of the albums that openend the same week as Rihanna’s have matched Loud’s US sales.

    . . . you can have a seat, now.

  105. JER March 31, 2011

    i ovehow Britney has performed two times, has one video out and 2 singles and her album selling 300k is “underwelming” yer when Chris Brown releases FIVE SINGLES, makes more than 20 appearences and can’t even scrape together 300k he’s a brilliant success.

  106. B@tch Please March 31, 2011

    What is this mess about Rihanna not having a number 1 album.So….. P!nk never had a number album and still sales like crazy and great at what she does. Having a number 1 album doesn’t mean your gonna go platinum or less popular.

    GOOD DAY……

  107. irene46 March 31, 2011

    @ kidd & kavion…

    if britney’s album isn’t being promoted what is your idea of promo?!! she’s been on gma, jimmy kimmel, video station ‘fuse’ is doing a 24 hr britney takeover, there’s going to be an ‘ff’ special and she’s showing up on the ‘kids choice awards’ and i’m sure i’m leaving something out! oh, yeah! she’s all over this blog site!

    whew! people will say the silliest things to make excuses for their favs low sales. is it possible the lower than expected sales may be that many fans have gotten over her. some have said as much!

    200-300k is not a flop but it sure won’t be putting the pop queen crown on her head!

  108. KaVion March 31, 2011

    Whoever that was who replied to me.

    Actually Kyle still can’t come for Bey’s numbers because it’s not our fault that Britney couldn’t perform and we never see her ass. Her fans have been blowing twitter UP. She’s had enough promotion to where everyone who bought Circus could’ve bought Femme Fatale.

    @KYLE
    Lol, we’re talking about FEMME FATALE, not Circus. It’s all good, let’s just waith for Round IV’s numbers.

    Also, the Circus Tour only sold that much because a) some people wanted to see another infamous VMA performance b) all that damn hype she had from the insane things that were occuring in her life. Let’s talk about which tour was BETTER. I Am Tour beats it by a landslide.

    I’m nowhere near mad, I don’t hate Britney.

  110. AnthonyJCRM March 31, 2011

    This is a HIT, IDK Y, but its a HIT. The ? is in overtime will it sell more than Circus, we have to wait N see.

  111. theman March 31, 2011

    Pink is a real artist with real talent. She isn’t manufactured. She can actually perform and sing live. Yes Rihanna is platinum but it took everything she had to get there. She can thank holiday sales for that big boost. She would have been lucky to move 150k minus the holiday rush.

    I’m not speaking about worldwise sells. I’m talking about US sales. It’s funny that people are buying all of these singles, yet they fall back on the album, and tours. Sit Down? Who? Y’all sit down. Y’all are the ones that have failed to get Rihanna a #1 album. Then you wanna talk about she’s doing this and that, well first she needs to work on becoming a performer and a tolerable singer. She did do good at the grammys.

    Oh and i do like Rihanna.

  112. theman March 31, 2011

    Rihanna’s been performing everywhere? Stellar performances? …………

  113. Jordie March 31, 2011

    So Britney has hit an all time low where her numbers have to be compared to an R&B MALE SINGER. LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
    Let me try that again…. LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO who’s wigs are she snatching again????????

  114. Jordie March 31, 2011

    Yeah 200,000 or 300,000 isn’t a flop. BUT the way people were talking about her comeback…………………………….. fans/stans/media swore her comeback was like the next apocalypse. NO EXCUSES. Try again 😀

  115. Vegas girl March 31, 2011

    I guess this is pretty decent but comparing her sales to artists who have NEVER been as popular ( brown) is stupid. The people talking about how much she promoted versus how much he promoted…. Really?

    She’s BRITNEY SPEARS. She supposed to sell more with less work, she’s BRITNEY. SPEARS! For them to be opening at around the same numbers is a big positive for him. Remember what Brown’s last one sold opening week?

    Her numbers aren’t bad they just aren’t as good as before, she will probably still go platinum. She still will have one of the better openings this year. I just wish she wanted it as bad as her fans want it for her.

  116. FLORIDAGATOR March 31, 2011

  118. kashbmaryd March 31, 2011

    I don’t listen to Britney like that, but from what I’ve been reading it sounds like she’s having a similar problem as Drake did last year. Just couldn’t live up to the hype. And that’s especially bad for her because the media have finally stopped bringing up her private life (that was getting a little irritating).

    As far as Rihanna (who’s album I bought on the first week), not only is it a shame she couldn’t do more than 200k first week, it also kind of a slap in the face (no pun intended) that Chris Brown OUTSOLD her in his first week for a #1 album (and I bought his album too). He is back and the media failed to stop him (and from what I saw, they most certainly tried, lol).

    And, finally, look people, Lady Gaga is that fire right now. I don’t really like Beyonce (and she’s got paid more than Jay-Z last year btw) so I could care less about her albums. But Gaga has truly taken over. And she actually has something to say about the issues (I’ve never heard Britney or Christina say anything for or against anything other than “yeah my album is coming out). I might even be one in the pantheon that buys Gaga’s album. She really does make great music.

  119. marcus March 31, 2011

    i’ve been hearing a lot of negative feedback of brit’s vocal ability (or lack thereof). i love the album: i downloaded it weeks ago when it leaked and i was in the to buy it when it came out. that being said, she is not adele! these two artists (whom i both love dearly) are going to go headed to head for sales this year, and a lot of people are dissing brit for not singing as well as our lady from across the pond. you know what i say? who cares??? take it for what it is! i can’t listen to “21” the same way that i listen to “femme fatale” but they are both awesome in their own way. so what if brit is autotuned? it’s a fun album with good songs. get over it!

  120. lisa March 31, 2011

    BRITNEY IS WACK AND SHE IS OLD NEWS THAT’S WHY!

  121. YOOS March 31, 2011

    amazing songss after the promotional push she will do good i believe!

  122. lola March 31, 2011

    LMMAO at these prediction numbers! I JUST KNEW THAT SHE WOULD FLOP! Face it, Britney doesn’t have IT anymore and people are finally seeing how untalented and boring she is. She’s a mother and just needs to worry about being a better mother/taking care of her kids instead of making music. Her performances are humiliating and this woman cannot sing whatsoever. Britney never had any real talent, but I will admit that back in the day, she had the beauty, body, style, hot beats, and she could move well onstage. It’s funny because for someone of her status, these numbers are horrible. It’s the same with Rihanna. 200,000 your first week and 3.5 million sold worldwide is nothing when you’re supposed to be this big superstar and have sold 9 million copies worldwide with your previous album! 270,000 is wonderful for Chris, especially since he’s making a comeback and is still young in the game, but for Britney, it’s laughable!

  123. tws0305 March 31, 2011

    275-300K for the first week is still a respectable amount, especially in this sales climate. But yes these numbers are a bit underwhelming for an artist on Britney’s level. But to call it a “flop” is unfounded and that claim holds no water at all. This is Britney’s best album to date, and considering Rolling Stone gave it 4 stars is saying a lot. I think if the album hadn’t leaked 2 weeks early, the numbers would have been closer to the 500K mark for the first week. I see this record having longevity and going on to sell 1 million copies in 6 months.

  124. Britney just sucks March 31, 2011

    She will NEVER EVER be the superstar she once was. People are not interested in a 29-year old ADULT that needs to be babysat every day to make sure she behaves, that has a pretend boyfriend to make her appear normal, that is not “allowed” to have a cell phone and every one knows she doesn’t do her own tweets. Furthermore, interviews are done via email so her management can answer them for her (save for the Z100 she just did in which people are making fun of her saying “um” and “like” a lot. Also, she didn’t even know about her own website). Her music sounds the same and her dancing is pathetic. Time for this mental midget to retire already while she has just a tiny shred of dignity left.

  125. Nichole March 31, 2011

    I’m not team Britney this time around, but Trent really need to STFU and sit his ass down somewhere.

    Who is he to talk about Brit underperforming, when Mariah’s last two albums under performed and she has more flops than Britney does in her 13 year career? I love Mariah, but lets not act a fool now.

  126. irene46 March 31, 2011

    200-300k not good for an artist of britney’s stature? her ‘superstar stature’ has been mia since 2003!

    hardcore fans (can you say…kyle) help her sales big numbers the first week but they’re short lived. it took two years for her ‘blackout’ cd to reach platinum in the u s!! ‘circus’ did better but plenty of other females sold more.

    200-300k is damn good for an artist who is completely talentless, and is only kept relevant by media overhype, and hopelessly deluded fans (many of which can’t let go of the sight of 16 year old britney in pigtails and the short plaid shirt ).

    Femme Fatale is a great album. As far as Gaga goes her song is selling very well but it is terrible. It’s her worst song, yet her most successfull. I’d rather have Britney “flop” and deliver great music than sell a lot of crappy songs. Britney’s beat selling album is her worst and her worst selling album was her best. When I listen to music I don’t care if other people buy it, it’s not going to affect me at all how much records an artist sells. It won’t make me any richer so I could care less. I just care if they make a great album that I can listen to all the way through and Britney has delivered with Femme Fatale, well done Britney.
