Happy Anniversary, Blackout!

Britney Spears' 2007 album turns 3 today and I think it's only fitting for STM to dedicate this special post to celebrate the anniversary of this kick ass album. Dubbed as "Blackout," the album's title refers to "blacking out negativity and embracing life fully". True enough coz this album turned out to be a pivotal point in Britney's personal life. She may not be at her best state at the time but Spears managed to come out with one of the best pop-dance-rnb driven albums ever! She was even the executive producer of this album, something she's never done before with her previous efforts.

The album sold 124,000 copies on its first day of release in the US, with sales of 290,000 units in its first week, making it debut at number 2 on Billboard's 200 albums chart. It went on to sell like hot cakes and to date, it has already sold 987,000 copies in the US alone, with total sales of 3.1 million copies worldwide. It also gave Britney a year full of awards including her three-peat win at the 2008 MTV VMAs for "Best Female Video", "Best Pop Video" and "Video of the Year" for the hit "Piece of Me".

With 4 singles "Gimme More", "Piece of Me", "Break The Ice" and "Radar", Blackout is a testament that Britney Spears is the true queen of the dance floor and the only pop artist this generation who could make the bitches go wild on stage.
