When The Essential Britney Spears greatest hits record was released in August, 2013, it failed to make any commercial impact or break into the Billboard 200. But that's all changed.Lifetime's unsanctioned biopic on the pop star that recently aired was garbage and earned piss-poor ratings, but it did inspire people to listen to Britney's expansive music catalogue. So much so it gave Essential a much-needed boost up the charts and pushed it into this week's Billboard 200 chart, debuting at No. 185.
