    Nope, its fine. The image and its data ara besed on "2000s" achievement. "Baby one more time" was released in January 1999 and sold the majority of its units through the 1999 year but its sales also extended through 2000 and its estimated that it sold 7 million units after that year.
    Awwww sorry I misread it. I thought it was from the beginning of her career. I never knew that BOMT sold 20M copies a year

        Just found this list through a link on her wikipedia page. Not sure what "most profitable tours" means and how they calculate it but Britney appears twice on the list. Beyonce appears twice too. So this is amazing.

        • Yeah but that list is quite old, Circus probably is out of top 10 now.

          • Right now in the 10s there have been more +100m and +200m Tours than ever before. However by the time Britney did the "Circus Tour" the standards were different, and in order to have an idea how huge it was its important to know that by the time she pulled that Tour it became the 5th Highest grossing female Tour ever made / in HISTORY and 2 spots on the top 5 belonged to Madonna which means that as of 2009 4 female artists (Madonna, Celine Dion, Cher and Britney Spears) pulled the biggest female tours ever known until that point, so the "Circus Tour" was a massive and record breaking Tour for the standards of that time / previous decade.

              Madonna fans will do ANYTHING to enhance her status [as if she even needs it].

                        • Hard to believe Work Bitch sold 91k in Germany, but not impossible.

                          Do they include streaming??

                          I do remember though, that back when it was released it got discounted several times so its peak position sucked since it's a chart based on money grossed, but from that to 91k seems very unlikely :-?

                              • Just shows people that they don't care for her album discography unless it has actually 'good' songs on it

                                She should release an emotion and maybe she will slay again

                                          That is an actual / official RCA compilation release from Britney, but it had no announcement and wasn't promoted or supporting with any new songs or singles like she did with "Greatest hits: My Prerogative" or "The singles collection". Its probably just a contract filler release, I wonder why is it charting so high in Germany tho? What did happen? Was a Britney documentary aired or Did someone sing one of her songs on some talent show or what?

                                            TTWE sold almost 60.000 units here in 2011. Work Bitch had a similar chart run and our singles market was a lot healther during 2013 than it was in 2011. I believe it... Work Bitch was bigger here than the peak would tell you. To me it felt bigger than other singles from her in a long time. not counting Scream & Shout obviously

                                                          • The Femme Fatale era brought several peaks and new things for Britney's career.

                                                            - "Femme Fatale" produced her Most successful and biggest Radio era of her entire career with over 315million Audience impressions and 3 consecutive pop radio hits.

                                                            - "Femme Fatale" produced the Biggest solo Radio / Airplay hit of her entire career two times, first "Till the world ends" became her biggest Radio hit during its release just to be surpassed later by "I wanna go" which ultimately remains as her biggest Radio hit ever.

                                                            - The lead single "Hold it against me" broke digital and radio records at the moment, and as of today still remains as the 4th highest debut ever on Pop radio in US.

                                                            • Great post. This is why I don't consider Femme Fatale a career low for Britney, I never did. One can never go against several records, a #1 single (two if we count the S&M remix), two big radio hits, 15+ million records sold, 3 top 10 singles, 3 platinum singles, etc. Even if the album underperformed, it gave her certifications in several countries including her 8th Platinum RIAA album. Like you said a while ago, every era (until Britney Jean) was her peak in some way.

                                                              Unrelated to the FF era, but Britney is one of the few females that have topped the official singles chart of every relevant music market

                                                              Not counting Japan (Oricon) because none of them would be eligible. Has any international female ever topped the Oricon singles chart? If we count the international chart though, Britney has a few #1s there, as well as some others.

                                                              The following females have topped them all at one point:

                                                              Rihanna

                                                              Whitney Houston

                                                              Lady Gaga
