Los Angeles - Britney Spears is facing embarrassment over sales of her new album.

According to early figures, Britney Jean, the singer's eighth studio album shifted just 6 400 copies on its first day of release, including pre-orders.

Critics have described the songs as "disappointing" but the 32-year-old singer said she is proud of the effort.

In an open letter on her website, she said: "I poured my heart and soul into this album.

"I know I keep telling you it is my most personal record yet, but it's true and I'm really proud of that.
