There's no doubting Britney Spears' ability to sell records and fill arenas with adoring fans. Only a month after it's release, Britney's Femme Fatale has officially gone platinum. The million-copy selling album is the entertainer's sixth number one studio release - making her the only female artist in history to do so. Although Enrique Iglesias was initially publicized as Britney's opening act, the Latin pop star quickly pulled out of Britney's impending Femme Fatale Tour. Fans buying Britney Spears tickets will instead have the pleasure of enjoying the hip-hop and R&B stylings of Nicki Minaj. The New York-based Minaj's studio debut, Pink Friday, has also reached platinum status, flying up the charts on the strength of her singles "Right Thru Me" and "Did it On' em".
Featuring the likes of top music producers Dr. Luke and will.i.am, Femme Fatale has been called by some Britney's best album ever. The 12-track disc is riddled with danceable beats and electro pop melodies that should translate over perfectly to the concert stage. A veteran of multi-million dollar grossing world tours, Britney will likely be one of the biggest concert acts on the road this summer. The pop icon's North American leg will kick off this June in Sacramento and finish up in August in Montreal. The all-female billing of Britney Spears, Nicki Minaj, promising new act Jessie and the Toy Boys, and Aussie twin sensation Nervo will soon be entertaining thousands.
