I consider the Britney Spears discography as one of the most interesting arrays of pop and dance songs I have ever heard. Her music brought a new level of excitement for people around the world for dance and pop music. After Madonna, Britney Spears was the next generation female artist who dominated both the stage and the music charts.

 

The First Album From The Britney Spears Discography That Made Her Career

The first two albums of Britney Spears were actually the defining albums that launched her career. You may remember the song “Baby one more time” which was also from her very first album with the same title. This album was released in January 12, 1999 as her debut album. It became a number one hit in the Billboard 200 charts. It stayed there for 6 consecutive weeks. This album sold around 1.8 million copies after only two months that it was released. Britney Spears became phenomenal and her place in the music industry was permanently established when she launched her second album the following year.

 

The Second Album That Established Her As A Worldwide Pop Icon

Britney Spears is considered one of the most popular female pop singers of today mainly because of the launch of her second album entitled “Oops, I Did It Again.” She was recognized on her first album but this second one affirmed her position in the music industry. This album topped the charts in the U.S. Billboard 100. It also sold more than 1.3 million units on the first week. It was a phenomenal feat. Not only did it become number one in the U.S. but it also became number one in thirteen other countries.

The Rest Of The Albums From The Britney Spears Discography

Princess of Pop Britney Spears released a total of seven studio albums. The first two was already discussed to you previously. The rest are just as successful. The albums were ‘Britney’ released in 2001, ‘In The Zone’ released in 2003, ‘Blackout’ released in 2007, ‘Circus’ released in 2008 and the latest in 2011 which was entitled Femme Fatale. All of her albums were under the label Jive.

Although none of these albums reached the same feat as her first two albums did, it still reached record sales of more than 1 million in the U.S. and millions more all over the world.

 

Britney’s Musical Influences

Britney Spears DiscographyBritney Spears had several musical influences and top of the list are Madonna and Janet Jackson. She has been a huge fan of Madonna growing up. Eventually, there came a time when both Madonna and Britney shared the stage and even made headlines with their controversial on-stage kiss. Her other musical influences included Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston.

Today, Britney is considered a musical inspiration and major influence by many of the new artists including Katy Perry, Girls’ Generation, Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez.

If you notice her singles, the songs were mostly written about her personal experiences and life story. Every heartache she experienced in life was turned into a song, so many people felt for her and related to her experiences through her songs. Her song “Everytime” for example, was written after her much publicized breakup with fellow artist Justin Timberlake. That is why the entire Britney Spears discography is truly a reflection of her life and talent.
