According to the Recording Industry Association of America, Britney Spears is the best selling artist of the decade, as she’s sold more than 100 million records over the past 10 years.
She’s been keeping away from the music limelight since her latest studio album release in late 2008 and the world tour that followed it, but still, Britney Spears is the princess of pop, and there’s nothing you can do about it.
The RIAA stats say that Britney’s debut album, Baby One More Time, sold more than 28 million copies within a year, and her sophomore album, Oops!… I Did It Again, sold over 20 million copies and debuted at #1 with sales of 1,319,193 million in the first week.
Ranked the top seller of the 2000s, Ms. Spears also enters the list of the five best selling artists of all time, sitting alongside such names as Janet Jackson, Whitney Houston, and Mariah Carey.
Congrats, Britney! Hope your new studio release will be as good as your first ones.
Britney Spears is currently working on her seventh studio album. The tentative release date is November 2010.
