Britney Spears has scored the lowest-selling album of her career with her latest self-titled release.

The “Toxic” hitmaker, who starts a residency in Las Vegas later this month, released her eighth studio album, “Britney Jean” on Nov. 29.

The record sold just 107,000 copies in the U.S. in its opening week.

The tally gave Spears fourth place on the Billboard 200, marking the lowest U.S. album sales of her career.

“Britney Jean” also fared badly in the U.K. after barely scraping into the top 40 chart. The record entered at number 34 with sales of just 12,959 in its first week, marking Spears’ lowest ever album chart position in Britain.
