Though listed among Britney Spears‘ most critically acclaimed projects, her 9th LP – 2016’s ‘Glory’ – is her worst selling and only studio album to date to lack a certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
However, renewed interest in the ‘Make Me’-led set may be making a change to its criminally underrated story.
Much like her idols Madonna, Janet Jackson, and Mariah Carey (as we previously reported here), the Pop diva is seeing a prized member of her catalog get some modern day glory – even earning mention alongside today’s top sellers years beyond its original release.
After Carey and Madge both topped real-time sales tallies with their ‘E=MC2’ and ‘Bedtime Stories’ albums respectively, consumer interest has been reawakened in Britney’s 2016 set.
So much so, the project is found at #1 on the iTunes Pop chart and #4 on the overall iTunes chart (as of time reported). Unlike Jackson, Carey, and Madonna, Spears’ opus is not benefiting from a $4.99 sale.

If sustained, the upped sales could see ‘Glory’ enter the upper half of the Billboard 200 next week.
Bonus: After learning of the unexpected boost, Brit took to Instagram to thank her fans – affectionately called the #BritneyArmy. See the footage below (courtesy of our friends at DailyMail):
