Britney Has Officially Sold 100 Million Worldwide

According to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), Britney Spears has officially sold over 100 million records.

Britney’s phenomenal sales first began in the late nineties, when her debut album “…Baby One More Time“ went Diamond and sold around 28 million copies worldwide. Her next effort “Oops… I Did It Again” was also certified Diamond and sold 20 million copies in total, putting Britney close to 50 million albums sold off her first two releases alone.

Billboard ranked Britney as the biggest selling female artist of the past decade, the best selling teenager in history, one of the highest selling female artists of all time. All six of her studio albums have topped the Billboard charts, except for 2007′s 3 million selling 'Blackout' which peaked at #2 after chart rules changed just before the release.

Her previous album "Circus" has reportedly sold up to five million copies worldwide. Her follow-up to that is in recording process and expected to be released at the end of the year.
