Britney Spears opens on top of Billboard 200 albums chart

Posted on

The numbers for Britney Spears’ new album, Femme Fatale, are in.

Her seventh set debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with 276,000 copies sold. Though it opens at the top spot, that’s a pretty underwhelming tally, considering it’s her second-lowest opening. Only her first record, 1999’s Baby One More Time, sold less, with 121,000 units.

Hip-hop talent Wiz Khalifa’s Atlantic Records debut, Rolling Papers, begins its stay on the chart at No. 2. 197,000 copies of his “Black and Yellow”-featuring set were purchased. While Adele’s 21 holds at No. 3: this g0-around she sold 94,000 albums. Check out the full top 10 after the jump.
