Britney Spears ‘Circus’ Tops Billboard Charts

If nothing else, Britney Spears is back on top of her album-selling game, as her latest album Circus will debut at #1 on next week’s Billboard album charts.

Her Circus album will debut at #1 on next week’s Billboard albums Chart, selling just under 505,100 copies of her Circus album. It’s Spears’ fifth album to debut at #1 on the chart, and it sold nearly twice as many copies as last year’s Blackout album, which was denied the top spot on the chart by the EaglesLong Road Out of Eden.

Circus‘ first-week sales total is certainly big, but it’s only the sixth biggest opening of 2008, behind albums like Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter III, AC/DC’s Black Ice, Coldplay’s Viva la Vida, Taylor Swift’s Fearless and T.I.’s Paper Trail. Still, it outpaced the first-week numbers of some of Brit’s pop peers, including Beyoncé’s I Am … Sasha Fierce, Mariah Carey‘s E = MC2 and Miley CyrusBreakout.
