My Nguyen June 14, 2012
According to TheCelebrityCafe.com, Britney Spears’ 2007 critically acclaimed fifth studio album, Blackout, has been inducted into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s music library and archives this month
This is a huge honor for the new X-Factor judge. The archives were specifically created to be the “most comprehensive repository of materials relating to the history of rock and roll,” and for Spears to be able to contribute her own slice of musical history into this collection of comprehensive rock material is considered to be a huge milestone for the Toxic-singer.
TheCelebritycafe.com also reports that this is just the latest accolade for Spears’, Blackout, which went on to sell over a million copies in July 2011. Although this is the only album of Spears’ that seemed to have missed the coveted number one spot on the Billboard 200, all of Blackout’s singles, which includes Gimme More, Piece of Me, and Break the Ice happened to top the Billboard’s Dance/Club Play Songs chart. This is considered an incredible feat, and makes it her only album that was able to accomplish this.
