Circus Debuts @ #1

While Spears’ previous release Blackout also debuted  @ #1, it quickly fell down the charts amid her increasingly negative publicity and lack of promotion. But industry insiders say Circus is altogether different, proven not only by the #1 single “Womanizer” but also the quick skyrocketing of the second single “Circus,” which gained the most radio airplay of any single since its release last week. Britney’s taught and hot body is also being shown-off in her high-profile performances of “Circus” on the TV circuit. Spears’ manager sums it pretty good, “Professionally, she’s feeling great…and it’s great for her to hear she has the #1 album again.” Debuting over a decade ago, Britney Spears is a multiplatinum sensation and has sold over 30 million copies of her albums in the United States alone. Circus is available from JIVE Records in retailers nationwide or for digital download through iTunes.
