In music history, few acts have moved more units than Britney Spears.
We're talking about album sales, not that she hasn't moved a fair share of units in other ways, if you know what me mean. Just not 80 million of 'em.
It's hard to believe, given her current status as redeemed train wreck, but Britney has now been around and cranking out hit music for a full decade.
In celebration of the 10th anniversary of her debut on the scene, Jive Records is releasing Britney Spears: The Singles Collection on November 24.
To help launch the special package, a brand new Britney single entitled "3," which she just recorded with Max Martin, will debut Tuesday, September 29.
There will be two configurations of The Singles Collection:
- The standard version, which will contain 17 of Britney Spears' chart topping favorites along with the new song "3," all on one totally awesome CD.
- The ultimate fan box set version, containing all 29 of singer's singles, including the new "3." You also get a book of cool Britney Spears photos.
During her stellar 10 year career, Britney has had five albums debut at the #1 spot on the Billboard Top 100 Album Chart, as well as 23 (23!) Top 40 hits.
Britney is currently touring in support of her most recent studio album Circus. The Circus tour started in her home state of Louisiana in March 2009.
