Whitesnake’s ‘Forevermore’ Outselling Britney Spears In UK
March 27, 2011
Ben Arnold of uk.music.yahoo.com reports that 80s hair metallers Whitesnake are set to scupper Britney Spears’ comeback.
The band’s 11th album ‘Forevermore’ has so-far received 35% more pre-orders on Amazon.co.uk than Britney’s latest, ‘Femme Fatale’.
A spokesperson for Amazon said: “Britney Spears is one of the most successful global pop acts with a career spanning more than ten years but, even with this pedigree, she is being overshadowed and outsold by the elder statesmen of British rock.
“Whitesnake were already releasing their fourth album in 1981, the year Britney was born, and it is a major achievement to be racking up more pre-orders than the pop princess.”
‘Femme Fatale’ is due out this Monday (March 28), with ‘Forevermore’ following on April 18.
