Britney Spears is having a tough time selling Britney Jean, y’all. According to Billboard, it’s her lowest debut ever, moving only 107,000. By comparison, her last album, Femme Fatale, moved 276,000. She landed at #4.
And guess who is in #1? Garth Freaking Brooks.
Seriously, did we time travel? Garth kicked Britney’s ass, and is, according to Billboard, “is tied for the most No. 1 albums with the Rolling Stones and Barbra Streisand, with nine each. Ahead of them on the all-time most-No. 1s list are Elvis Presley and Bruce Springsteen (both with 10 No. 1s), Jay Z (13) and the Beatles (19).”
Guess we can’t expect a huge viewing for her docuseries. Let’s hope her massive Vegas residency fares a lot better or Britney Jean is Britney Flops. (Sorry, that wasn’t even a clever pun. I couldn’t think of something funny that started with “J”. Go for it!)
