Sales Figures: Britney Spears & Chis Brown Continue To Flop

  Britney Spears was once major force on the Billboard charts but now it seems that her ability to sell records has diminished along with her skills on the dance floor. Indeed, after only 1 week at #1, her ‘Femme Fatale’ album has already been replaced.

However, the LP was not evicted from the top spot by a new release; it was forced out by Adele’s ‘21′ which returns to the summit of tally after 8 weeks on the chart. It seems that lights in Spears’ circus have begun to dim.

Spears’ ‘Fatale’ sold a mere 76k this week, representing a striking 73% dip in sales. The album now sits at #2 on the Billboard 200 behind ‘21′ which moved another 88k units and became the 1st album of 2011 to sell more than 1 million copies in the US (1.03 million to be exact).

Further down the list, Wiz Khalifa’s ‘Rolling Papers’ slipped from #2 to #5 with 59k (down 70%) and convicted felon Fist Brown’s ‘F.A.M.E’ continues to flop, dropping from #4 to #6 selling a pathetic 51k (down 44%). At this rate, 'F.A.M.E' will never reach platinum. Lastly, Kirk Franklin’s ‘Hello Fear’ experienced a minor sales decrease, falling 1 spot to #10 with 31k (down 33%).
