"Britney Jean," Britney Spears' anticipated new album, is expected to arrive in the top tier on the Billboard 200 albums chart next week.
According to trusted sources, the album could debut with sales figures of 115,000-120,000 copies sold by week's end, which could give it a debut somewhere between 2-4.
The top spot is expected to go to Garth Brooks' box set, "Blame It All On My Roots," which is projected to move 150,000 copies.
"The six-CD/two-DVD set, which is exclusively sold through Walmart stores, debuted at No. 3 on this week's chart after less than four days on sale. It bowed with 164,000, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The package was released on Thursday, Nov. 28 (Thanksgiving day), and the most recent tracking week ended on Sunday, Dec. 1," reports Billboard.
Spears' last studio album, 2011's "Femme Fatale," debuted at No. 1 with 276,000. Before that, 2008's "Circus" opened at No. 1 with 505,000.
