Pop icon Britney Spears is continuing her recent streak of success, as her 7th studio album ‘Femme Fatale’ was certified platinum today by the RIAA. The album, which was released March 29th, debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200, becoming her 6th #1 album and has since shipped 1 million copies to retailers in the US.
This news definitely comes with a sigh of relief, as many fans were considered with the fate of Spears’ latest album. With minimal promotion, lackluster live performances, and with her use of a body double in her latest music videos, many, including myself were worried that the negative press would overshadow what is, what many believe, her best album yet.
With the pop superstar’s U.S. album certifications now reaching 32 million, her first single ‘Hold It Against Me’ shattering airplay records and becoming her 4th #1 hit, as well as her latest single ‘Till The World Ends’ reaching Top 5 on the Hot 100, it looks like Britney’s music, is indeed, overshadowing her controversy.
