Britney is the third studio album by American pop singer Britney Spears. The album was released worldwide on November 5, 2001 by Jive Records, and one day after in the United States. Britney is notable for Spears' increasingly prominent role in the production, and being the transition album away from her bubblegum pop sound and teen pop image from her previous two albums, and leaned increasingly toward more R&B and Hip hop, along with more sexual influences. Although the album's singles were slightly less successful than her album's previews singles, Spears assumed some creative control by co-writing five of the album's tracks. The uneasy transactional music styles for the album Britney garned it at the number one position in the Billboard 200, in which gave the Jive label its eleventh chart-topping album. The album became 2001's most successful debut by a female or female group artist. The album's success made her the first female artist in music history to have her first three studio albums to debut at the number one spot. This record however would later be broken by Spears herself with her 4th studio album In the Zone which charted in the same position.
