Britney Spears’ Album ‘Femme Fatale’ Certified Platinum

Published: Friday 29th Apr 2011 by TGJ Staff

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.

  7. ann April 29, 2011

    I guess it shipped a million copies and but actually sold about 400 000 so far.

    I can definitely see it selling a million later this year, maybe by end of summer.

    good for britney!

    i hope Chris Brown and Jennifer Hudson eventually go platinum as well!

  8. Lamont April 29, 2011

    Chris Brown & Britney Spears are on the same record label JIVE RECORDS!!! Why the hell they shipped out 1 million+ copies when she has only sold about 440k. They should done the same thing for Chris Brown its just not fair!!!! Chris has sold 485k to date!!! Im too mad!!! Dont worry #teambreezy its gone get certified platinum soon!!!

  9. woodlumboy April 29, 2011

  13. theman April 29, 2011

    Britney is a much bigger star than Chris Brown, even though they have sold around the same amount, or he has sold a little more. But no one knew exactly how Chris’s first weeks numbers would turnout. But Britney is very solid in her first weeks numbers.

  14. bey’knight April 29, 2011

    gaga is lucky judas is just one word, haters can put the word flop in it lol

  15. theman April 29, 2011

    THE WORLD >>>FLOP >>> HAS BEEN EXTREMELY OVERUSED AND TERRIBLY ABUSED. FF IS NOT FLOPPING IT’S BASICALLY GOLD ALREADY, WITH A HUGE NUMBER 1 AND A TOP 5, IT SEEMS AS THOUGH IT’S HAVING LEGS SOME WHAT RIGHT NOW.

  16. pink.kisses April 29, 2011

  17. ImgunnacheckUboo April 29, 2011

  18. mobwife (i’m a dirty s&m lovin’ billy goat) April 29, 2011

    WAIT A MINUTE….WHAT?

    How is she certified PLATINUM when she has yet to be certified GOLD? This sounds like complete BULLSH** to me! What sort of games are being played? Today’s music industry is ridiculous, biased, and must think the fans are crazy!!

  26. Christian April 29, 2011

    Congrats to Britney!!!! I dunno why Jive hasn’t certified “Blackout”. WEIRD!!!!

    But like I said the other day “FF” will pass 500,000 in about a week or two. Plus “FF” will be moving up the billboard charts next week. And obviously Jive is confident that “FF” will go platinum that’s why they shipped a million copies to certify it platinum.

    As for Chris Brown – I have no idea why they didn’t certify his album platinum.

  27. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ April 29, 2011

    Um, no. FF is a good album but its not her best. Blackout>>>>>>>

  28. DUNKFAN April 29, 2011

    Shipped not sold.

  29. Christian April 29, 2011

    WAIT!!!!!! WHO actually buys the certifications? Is it the artists LABEL?? or the artist Management team????

    @RIHMAMA

    You are kidding right? But not for Britney Spears, RAGGEDY RihANNa would not have gotten her latest desposable #1 single! You need to bow down and kiss this chick fat feet while you, (a Rihanna stan) of all ppl are trying to hate on her!

    Yeah right she’s Queen of GOAT NATION….baa

  31. noodles April 29, 2011

    SHOW ME THE RECITES!

    No hate here but her album is NOT platnium in the US at all! It may be Gold by now but for her to be platnium Chris would have to be platnium too because she is NOT selling too much more than him in album sales with FF. And that’s the truth. She has probably sold maybe 500k so far! TGJ why are you lying where did this come from?

  32. mami April 29, 2011

    @Beyonic
    It’s not a Beyoncé post!!!Damn you’re really obssessed with this girl!!Give the girl a break!!Beyoncé will NEVER EVER I SAID NEVER EVER FLOP!!
    And you need professionnal help!!!

  33. Y’all are too fake April 29, 2011

    King of Pop: Eminem??????
    You Rihanna stans are f****** retarded.
    Gaga has still sold more than Beyonce & Britney thus far. Born This Way & Judas both went to #1 and just tha fact that you claim King of Pop: Eminem shows you have no taste in music.
    Rihanna can’t sing or dance either. So Good Job on making yourself look like idiots
    Hateful queens……..

  34. noodles April 29, 2011

    Her album is still selling well and good for her but ya’ll some damn liars trying to tell someone it isb platnium. I’ll be damned. At what point did it even go Gold?

  35. royalkev April 29, 2011

    Congrats, I guess! I don’t know how on earth this is true. I still wish Britney the best though.

    Femme Fatale is an amazing album in all honesty. Britney is very consistent with every album she releases, its always a solid effort. I am impressed with her more than any of her competitors. I would say that in order of albums right now my favorite is Femme Fatale. I can not honestly think of any song on the album I don’t like. <3

  37. Y’all are too fake April 29, 2011

    @ЯĄŁΥΥ`

    Gurl, you really need some help. So quick to call someone a Flop but you can’t recognize good music. Music isn’t always about who sells the most.
    But! When Rihanna has a certified DIAMOND album like “The Fame”, let me know
    I don’t recall Michael Jackson ( THE REAL KING of Pop) wanting to work with Rihanna. Lol.
    Hmmm you fail.

    @ Y’all Are Too Fake:

    Gaga and Beyoncé haven’t released their albums yet… O_o

  42. Mr. T April 29, 2011

    Somehow I knew Beyonce’s name would pop in this post…smh

    Ummm I don’t know how factual this is, seeing as how her live performances suck, TTWE didn’t break the records like HIAM, and she hasn’t really been promoting. Not to mention that FF sounds like a bunch of recycled club beats with Brit “singing” ova them.

    But congrats Brit. At this rate she’ll be double plat next month.

  43. WildChild April 29, 2011

    So you don’t have to actually sell a million copies you can just ship a million and you are automatically platinum? I’m confused. Nevertheless congratulations Brit.

    Femme Floptale isn’t even GOLD in terms of sales yet

  46. noodles April 29, 2011

    DEAD at the people believing she is platnium. I understand if she shipped a mill but she didn’t sell yet. Why would ya’ll post this? To my knowledge I think she has sold 440k…so shouldn’t you be posting about her being Gold and not platnium?

  47. True Blue April 29, 2011

  48. BOLO April 29, 2011

    This is so sad. The record label had to buy her certification for Platinum? You britney fans/stans irk the hell out of me. If this was Rihanna,Lady Gaga,Beyonce or anybody else you all would be calling “Foul” The truth of the matter is the album isn’t selling that well and they are trying to save face instead of being honest

  49. tee April 29, 2011

    ok im not hating but come on certified platinum because of shipments O_o when it hasnt even sold 500k in sells? thats crappy to me
    Giving someone a Gold plague when they sold 300k – 400k is cool because its so close to 500k
    and giving someone the platinum plague when the sold 800k-900k,hell even 700k is cool because its still pretty close and u can understand how a million shipments were shipped to stores
    but i dont understand how or why a million of her album was shipped when its clearly not selling that well
    this right here isnt fair to me at all
    but congratz to britney,because i heard the album is actually good even tho her performances have sucked lately

  50. voinko April 29, 2011

    LOL BEYONCE TEAM SAYS RUN THE WORLD IS A FLOP….AND THEY GONNA MOVE ON WITH NEW SINGLE HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAHAHAHA FLOOOOOOP

    SOURCE: Apparently because Bey’s new single “Run The World” hasn’t charted as well as her team have hoped they are now keeping an eye on the sales and if they don’t improve with in the next couple of weeks or so the single may just get retitled as a buzz single and “Till The End Of Time” could be the official first single.

    The video is still to premiere for the song and the video could be the making of it. Also its being said that her and her team were very excited to do a full out promo tour with “Run The World” but if the fans no likey then it won’t go a head. No dates have been revealed on when this new single will drop or if it drops as the official but like i said the source is super reliable. “Till The End Of Time” is said to be a more of an Urban sound and more radio friendly song.

  52. brody April 29, 2011

    Her album was good the quality was consistent through

    You are kidding right? Britney’s numbers should have been much higher considering she is as you state “a much bigger star than Chris Brown”! Ppl knew how well CB was going to do stop playing! Her 1st week #1’s were not impressive considering her 10 yr standing in the business! She is said to be part of the BIG THREE!!

  58. Gilberto April 29, 2011

    RIAA certifications are based on shipments, not on real sales.
    In that case, it shows that her label was expecting bigger numbers from the album, therefore they overshipped it.
    I wonder if a Britney Spears’ album will be certified multi-platinum again. The last time it happened was 8 years ago or so.
    Nowadays, her albums are selling at the same rate as Katy Perry and Ke$ha’s. I didn’t put Rihanna’s name among these untalented ladies, because at least she has got support from Europe to save her.
    Taking about Rihanna, since she called Britney Spears to save S&M. Both ladies could join together and record a full album. It’ll be great for both. Then finally, Rihanna’ll score a #1 album in US and Britney’ll score a #1 album in UK.

    Oh girl please ain’t nobody moaning and whining….just stating facts. She can’t possibly be platnium if that’s the case Jive needs to give him a certification too cosidering she hasn’t sold much more than him. I’ll be damned if I sit in a corner…not my fault people are throwing around certifications.

    Looks to me like Britney is Jive’s best shot for the rest of the year so they will basically do anything to make the audience thinks she’s slaying while she ‘s not really : her album has been out for only one month and there are arleady two stunt remixes to help to get #1s, and now this certification while the album is not even gold yet…

    No hate on Britney but those tricks are bugging the hell out of me. When the music is good, it’s good, just take a look at Adele. Enough with the scheming.

    People are so f****** stupid, the article clearly says Femme Fatale has SHIPPED 1 million copies, not sold. It has only sold like 450K in the US and about 1 million WW, I’m pretty sure it’ll probably sell around 1 million copies in the US and about 2.5 million WW overall

    Exactly. It’s one thing if she had sold around maybe 700k so far and it was “certified platnium” but she hasn’t even sold 500k yet. It’s not not hate or shade either but they are doing too much just for some of her delusional stans to go crazy. It’s getting old real quick.

  69. Kenny April 29, 2011

    Yes, they are all working for the same people. This is why they laugh at us when we argue over them, they know they are in cahoots with each other and its apart of the bigger picture. Why do you think they have all released a song about end of world, ruling the world, only girl in the world, born this way? They are pushing the same agenda, if these artist were apart then their messages would be different and not the same… none of these people write their own music.

  70. Mysterious April 29, 2011

    RIAA has always used shipments so to you people saying it’s not certified until its SOLD u sound crazy cuz that’s not how it works. The wya it goes in your mind doesn’t count.

    And how do you know her album wasn’t initially undershipped because of her being away for a while and was selling out in stores thus them having to ship more for the demand.

    Im not a britney spears fan but just saying.

WHAT THIS MEANS IS THAT IF BRITNEY’S S*** DOESNT SELL, WHOLESALERS/RETAILERS WILL NOT BUY HER CRAP IN THE FUTURE. SUCKS FOR HER CAREER. SHE’S DONE!!!!!!

    They are no different, they are pushing the same agenda in their music.
    We Are Who We Are
    Born This Way
    Til the World Ends
    Only Girl in the World
    Who runs the World
    Til the End of Time

    Doesnt strike you as odd being that they are on different teams but have the same themes?

  75. Kenny April 29, 2011

    In music Britney will never be done, her label and shareholders will not let that happen… even if they have to purchase. Walmart will always sell Britney’s music because she is apart of the machine….

  76. noodles April 29, 2011

    @Kenny
    In my opinion not really because then I could kind of see the same similarity with all artist and song titles. I mean everybody is kind of singing about the same thing but with a different style and different sound so it’s not odd that they have the same themes.

    Katy perry will probably end up selling more than her when all is said and done This album will be lucky to touch the 3mill mark worldwide. Rihnna has without a doubt suppased her and i dont evn need to bring up B and GagGa

    Really? at people saying her album was great, its a decent album filled with a loads of catchy manufactured pop tracks and souless lyrics, all to be forgotten in the comming months.

  78. fashion icon April 29, 2011

    its britney b****….. ya people are suckkk when you wanna believe somthing you do and when you dont wanna you dont….if you hate queen of pop why you read this news any way???? you r damn haters you should get a life at first… i dont think thy have 2 lie about somthing like this ..in every where i go i heard the femme fatale album songs .. every one will love this album and spacialy (till the world end.drop dead.trip 2your heart.hold it against me.i wanna go).

  79. Kingofleon April 29, 2011

    @Kenny

    its only a matter of time before she becomes redundant. her albums sales are decreasing into the average zone. Soon they will find a better artist with better sales potential, then they wont need to spend so much money tryna create sales, the music will sell itself (adele). If Britney was to suddenly show some pasion and drive, im sure will regain some of her stardom and do well. Her tours still seem to sell ALOT!!!

  80. iLoveXtina April 29, 2011

    LOL Jive obviously expected this album to fly off the shelves so they shipped over 1 million copies but FF sold less than that. It’s a shame that in 4 weeks it hasn’t even sold Circus’ 1st week sales yet as this album is much better.

    britney saw rihanna’s s & m was at # 2 on bb and knew even if just a few of her fans combined with rihanna’s went for the bait it would make the short jump to #1. britney deserves no credit for doing a collab with an artist who’s single is already at #2. britney should be kissing rihanna’s feet for allowing her to sponge off her already high placed single. kiss britney’s feet?! get real!!!

    Even if beyonic knowles collaborate with katy or Britney or Rihanna or Gaga, Beyonic is still destined to be the biggest black joke ever! Hahahaha!

    Britney is not the first artist to certify something platinum at about half sold, I assume they expect it will sell 1 million ( they just skipped right past gold). Same thing happened with Rated R, which eventually sold 1 million in the states ( i think). Its shipped not sold.

    Im not sure who pays for the certifications but I don’t think anyone should be able to have to pay for a certification, they should be given it when the sales, not shipped, goal is reached. I think they do this to make it look like the album is doing better than it is actually doing in real numbers. I think alot of artist do this but I think the bigger “superstars” do it more so they look better ( plus I don’t know how much it cost to get the certification), who wants to look like a failure?

    What????
    Has she even sold 500,000 copies yet???????
    This is hilarious! What Britney has sold this year Mariah is still selling every year, one gold record per year, but a true gold! But then again, who is Britney untalented Spears? She is a joke compared to true artists

  96. E-Type April 30, 2011

    How is shipping a million an achievment?

  97. Beyonic: Round Flop April 30, 2011

    ThatGrapeJuice should also certify Beyonic’s Run this World as FLOPtinum! Hahahaha!

  98. Beyonic: Round Flop April 30, 2011

    @E-TYPE

    How is #43 in iTunes an achievement?? Hahahaha!

  99. GagaStan April 30, 2011

    @Kenny

    Gaga writes all her lyrics check the credits h**!

    your comment about “none of them actually write” must be referring to BeystealingCredits or DontDoShitney

  100. ken April 30, 2011

    Motivation is # 34 on itunes and Girls is #44 GO GO GO GO GO where the kelly stans at…….
    anywaz i just saw a shocking video of Beyonce falling while strutting her stuff to single ladies at http://www.kelsnetwork.blogspot.com/

  101. Brtiney Spears April 30, 2011

    in case yall didnt know! the album is slated to be at #2 next week! the album is selling! and why everyone has to be so harshful on Britney?! she is the only artist i see that NEVER EVER SHOWED ANY DISRESPECT TO NO OTHER CELEBRITIES and yet other celebs hate on her, and so does people!!! DONT HATE THE PLAYER HATE THE GAME! BRITNEY WILL NEVER FALL! dont yall realize Britney has the 2nd highest selling album of the year thus far!!!!!! DUM ASSES!

  102. Brtiney Spears April 30, 2011

    Also remember there are two version of the album the regular version and the deluxe version, last week the regular album went up to #3 on iTunes, hence why the album is currently #5 on billboard!!!!!! so i think the album did sell about 1 million! with both the standard and deluxe version!

  104. mobwife (i’m a dirty S&M billy goat) April 30, 2011

    OMG FURTHER PROOF THAT DELUSION IS A DISEASE!

    Sell figures include all versions of a CD. It does not tease apart CD sells based on how a CD is classified (original, deluxe etc). This has got ot be 1st at leaset for me. Why in the world would JIVE certify this CD as Platinum when she has yet to reach Gold in sells figures. This just stinks to high heaven!!

  105. Cheers (Drink to That) May 1, 2011

    I don’t understand why can’t the artists SELL the # then the certification should be given!

    I think saying that an artist is platinum when they aren’t even gold is hella misleading!

  106. lola May 1, 2011

    All of you stans who are getting excited over this need to sit down! JIVE is obviously up to some fishy s***, just like Def Jam was with Rihanna! They did they same thing to her, ship out 500,000 more copies to get her certified platinum with “Rated R” and the damn album still flopped. Britney is flopping hard! She’s supposed to be this “legend” but has only sold 440,000 thus far! Chris has sold damn near 500,000 copies, so why the hell haven’t they shipped out the rest of the copies for him so he can reach platinum? It doesn’t matter though because Chris will ACTUALLY SELL OVER A MILLION in the US in a few months.

  107. ITS BRITNEY B**** May 1, 2011

    whatever……. she still the pop queen .. we dont care about the number .. the matter is the album is freakin coooooooooooooooool

  108. irene46 May 1, 2011

    correct me if i’m wrong ; but i suspected something smelly when it seemed her album got an extra week after it’s actual release to debute at # 1 on the bb chart. if i’m right chris brown was really at #1 for 2 weeks because bb revised the chart positions a week later than usual. this would give britney’s cd enough time to gain steam and chris’ to fall from the hot spot.

    jive needs to keep jackin’ britney to make it appear they have an icon on their roster even though she’s nothing more than an empty, talentless, totally studio produced entity who is being pushed to rob the talented artist of their well deserved shine. there’s nothing “freakin’ cooooooooool” about it! it’s only freakin’ traaaaaaaaagic!!!

  109. ITS BRITNEY B**** May 5, 2011

    and who the f*** is your favorite pop performer ????? please just tell me about it princes IRENE46…. but i am sure it lady haha

  110. irene46 May 5, 2011

  111. NALFAGD May 6, 2011

    Wikipedia be lieing sooo dont believe that shitt & plus wikipedia says it has been certified platinum!

  112. irene46 May 6, 2011

    i still would like to know if anyone knows for sure if britney’s ‘ff’ debute at # 1 was rigged like her platinum certfication. if someone knows or suspects, tell me please. i’ll wait!

    because chris brown went gold before britney, they fixed it so britney would do him one better by faking her platinum status.

  113. Emily May 8, 2011

    Haha! Britney was certified platinum by the # shipped. She’s that desperate.

  114. Arexx May 15, 2011
