Britney Spears’ Latest Album May Be Considered A ‘Flop,’ But She Rocked The Mannequin Challenge
Britney Spears’ new album has already become a flop, according to Forbes. The 34-year-old pop star may have released her latest album two months ago, but it’s already fair to say that Glory is a surprising flop.

When Britney Spears told her fans she had her ninth studio album coming, everyone was excited. In fact, pop music enthusiasts said the singer could be entering a “new era” in her pop career, but they couldn’t have been more wrong.
Now, with Glory becoming a huge flop on the music charts, Britney Spears’ singing career doesn’t look as bright as many had thought. In its sixth week, the new album had already dropped to No. 138; it debuted at No. 3.
There can be no excuse for a high-profile singer such as Britney Spears having her new album sitting at No. 138. In fact, it must be embarrassing for the “Toxic” singer to have her album lower than albums that have been on the chart for months.
And the fact that Britney Spears’ new album debuted at No. 3 is not good either because even the idea of Britney Spears not debuting at No. 1 is wild. When Glory debuted on the Billboard 200, it was already behind new albums by Barbra Streisand and country duo Florida Georgia Line.

It wouldn’t be such a disappointment if Glory was bested by new hit albums by Solange Knowles and Bon Iver and would be sitting somewhere between the No. 5 and No. 10 spots on the chart in its sixth week, but Britney Spears’ new album can’t even compete with Adele’s 25, which has been living on this chart for more than 46 weeks straight.
In fact, there are records that have been out for years that still managed to defeat Britney Spears’ Glory on the chart. The album’s debut at No. 3 was the singer’s second-lowest debut after her last album, Britney Jean, which was pushed to No. 4 during its first week of release.
It’s also fair to say that Britney Spears’ new album was one of the most highly-anticipated of 2016. Why wouldn’t it? The world hasn’t heard much music from the “Toxic” singer in the past few years, and her last album was released more than three years ago.

But Glory sinking on the chart says a lot about Britney Spears’ future. The album managed to stay in the upper half of the Billboard 200 chart for only a month, something that only albums from lesser-known artists manage to do.
It’s fair to say that Britney Spears’ new album will disappear from the chart at all in the next couple of weeks unless the singer pulls out some promotional magic to make her fans and non-fans give the album a shot and listen to her new music.

Britney Spears may not have what it takes to release another blockbuster album, but she and her crew certainly rocked the Mannequin Challenge. The “Toxic” singer released a video showing a brilliant attempt at the latest social media craze.
