    When you take everything into account: Album + singles performance + streaming activity + radio performance + touring performance , the FF era was bigger than “Blackout”.

    As for “Blackout” selling more albums , well, it was released in 2007 which was a healthier period for album sales than 2011. Not to mention than “Blackout” didn’t even make the IFPI Top 40 best selling albums of the year (not with the shipments from 2007 and then not with the continued performance through 2008) ... in the meantime “Femme Fatale” was one of IFPI’s Top 25 best selling albums from 2011 meaning that “Femme Fatale” as an album did better than “Blackout” in relation / proportion of their market sizes during their respective years.

    Obviously “Blackout” is the better album but the “Femme Fatale” era was bigger.
    True, but blackout was released Oct 31st if i remember right so tricky to make an impact on the annual chart

    • Blackout more dancey and is the better album but i love FF also. It’s a sexual album and very pop

        IFPI works with shipments so the release date doesn’t matter that much. In fact the initial shipments during the first couple months are generally the strongest.

        ”In The Zone” was released on November 12, 2003 and based on shipments alone it automatically became the 8th best selling album of that same year (2003) according to IFPI. The “Circus” (album) also made the list and became the 15th biggest album of 2008 on the IFPI report with just one month of release (December, 2008).

        “Blackout” wasn’t simply enough to make the annual Top 40 in any year.

        I’m not against “Blackout” , I’m just being honest and transparent with the era.

          .

          You're wrong.

          "Blackout" was #32 on IFPI's 2007 best sellers list with 2 million copies shipped.

            Thanks for the correction. Obviously in this case I absolutely love being proven wrong as I’m very glad that “Blackout” managed to make the list. For years I thought it never made the top 40 (perhaps I was confused with that Mediatraffic Top 40 year end chart).

            Still it was her lowest position on the annual IFPI chart out of her first 7 studio albums right?

              Don't know exact info, but when it was re-entered @ #155 it has sold 943 copies and total was 226,733, now is 233,527!

              Which means that it has sold 6,794k from no.165 to no.148 (7wks)

                      So it sold 970 copies as a weekly average for those 7 weeks. That isn’t pure sales though is it or is it .. it includes sale points..

                        Britney has had 10 eras really, not 9 (9 studio albums). I have based the order on album and singles sales only. Not tours/streams/radio plays. Have weighted albums 10 times more than single/digital sales.

                        • I class 3 as part of the Circus era. So Circus era has 5 singles lol. Radar was released during the circus era so is a circus single not a blackout single.

                          Scream + shout (late 2012) / ooh la la (2013) as part of the Britney jean era (2013). Gives it 4 releases then p

                          Pretty girls (2015) part of Glory era (2016), it gives it 3 releases then. Makes each era look decent then. I believe it was initially meant to be the 1st single anyway.

                          Baby one more time - Someday is chapter 1
                          Gimme more - Slumber party is chapter 2

                          Will there be a chapter 3 after ‘free britney’ .. not that there needs to be. Maybe 2022

                            This concept of Era only serves for fanbases of Teen Artists inflate the albums stats

                            Britney certainly doesn’t need this... doesn’t make any sense include 3 in Circus stats

                            In fact what makes The Singles Collection Gold eligible on US are 3 sales and streams

                            It just doesn’t work like that. “Circus” didn’t have 5 singles and “3” was not a single from “Circus” LOL

                              I’m sorry but this is not chart analysis. I think this would be better off in her general thread.

                              • There is this narrative that Britney chart-runs have no longevity... of course she is far from being a record breaker, but besides Hold it Against Me, her hits had good runs

                                had no idea Womanizer & 3 had almost as many weeks at the top10 as BOMT, that’s impressive

                                  During the digital / itunes era from 2007-2013 Britney spent 63 weeks inside the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100

                                  Weeks inside Top 10:

                                  - Gimme More - 4 weeks
                                  - Womanizer - 13 weeks
                                  - Circus - 5 weeks (4 weeks at #11 )
                                  - 3 - 11 weeks
                                  - Hold It Against Me - 5 weeks
                                  - Till The World Ends - 9 weeks
                                  - S&M Remix - 1 week (credited for one week)
                                  - I Wanna Go - 4 weeks
                                  - Scream & Shout - 11 weeks

                                  Total = 63 weeks

                                  —-

                                  The yearly distribution of the 63 weeks was something like this (I could be slightly wrong):

                                  Weeks inside Top 10:

                                  2007 - 4 weeks
                                  2008 - 10 weeks
                                  2009 - 17 weeks
                                  2010 - 2 weeks
                                  2011 - 19 weeks
                                  2012 - 0 weeks
                                  2013 - 11 weeks

                                      Ha it’s just 3 was released like 4 months after radar. As great as 3 is it’s one single. Need at least 2 singles to call it an era in my book ha. 11 weeks on the Billboard top 10 was impressive for 3 and i remember that was around xmas/new year. A lot of competition then.

                                      • Britney on the uk itv news today, regarding the conservatorship. ‘Over 2 decades after her 1st number 1’ That’s chart analysis newsreader said. It’s like 2006-2008 again. Scandal. In fact 2004-2008 (from Jason Alexander to 2008 rehab)
                                        baby/oops and toxic videos played as standard

Need at least 2 singles to call it an era in my book ha. 11 weeks on the Billboard top 10 was impressive for 3 and i remember that was around xmas/new year. A lot of competition then.
                                          How old are you, 10?

                                          No matter what’s in your book. “3” won’t ever be counted towards the Circus’ album in any chart system / criteria in the world, so it’s pointless to come with theories and fantasies. “3” performance, SPS units / streaming activity will be counted towards “The Singles Collection” album which is where the song belongs.

                                            Please, remember this is the chart analysis forum.

                                            For these kind of non chart related posts you should better use her thread in General Artists forum.

                                            Thanks.

                                                will take like one year to reach 500M views

                                                far from a Huge figure, but at least is better than Glory (220M) & Britney Jean (410M)

                                                currently these 3 albums are Britney only under Half Billion views

                                                  Well, the “Britney (2001)” has at least 5 different music videos uploaded (“I’m A Slave 4 U”, “Overprotected”, “I’m Not A Girl Not Yet A Woman”, “I Love Rock N Roll” and “Boys”) while “Britney Jean” has what? 2 music videos? .. “Glory” 2 music videos + 1 VMA performance.
