          • Using the yearly averages given last December, "Born to Make You Happy" should be at 395K, "(You Drive Me) Crazy" at 374K and "Piece of Me" at 371K. But keep in mind "Gimme More" sold more than its average (50K instead of 30K), so all of them should be higher.

            "My Only Wish (This Year)" will be certified Silver this month, too. She has a lot of new certifications coming up.

            • Britney must have sold around 12 million singles in the uk now

              Comment


              • Womanizer yearly average was 50k units. It must have sold more than its average considering that its recurrent streams are better than Gimme More. Also, Womanizer randomly charts on UK Apple Music at times and the Circus album is always charting there too.

                  Yeah, all of her songs must have sold more than their average. Her streaming numbers have improved a LOT this year.

                      All of those numbers are ridiculously inflated.

                      • It’s from a fans page so it’s not best selling females of all time cause Mariah celine etc are missing and I don’t think SPS are included for Ariana etc. I wouldn’t take it seriously.
                        Britney, X-tina, Lana, Janet, Spice Girls, Kylie, Dannii

                        • What is the point in even posting these fan twitter images in chart analysis? It achieves nothing. Other than some nice graphic design. But if the real sources aren't provided, it's crap.

                            As much as this list makes me mad to see them above her...
                            we all know she’s the only girl(maybe with Beyonc้ and Adele) that most of her catalog sold by just being herself and people actually go to cd store to buy a Britney Spears cd, which is pretty different from hearing a song on YouTube or just listening to iTunes and buying a song .. we all know that if the social media, YouTube or Spotify would be back in the 00 Britney would have does numbers as well....(along with Mariah)

                                    I swear I don't understand how that Twitter account is still open and even worse, most fanbases believing those completely made up and absurd numbers...

                                          All you need nowadays is a cute graphic and people will believe anything Stans inflating their fave's sales has always been a thing, but with streaming I feel like it's gotten worse than ever. Mostly because of double counting and those weird, made up methods they use

                                                • The entire concept of "records sold" drives me crazy because it doesn't reflect the changing music industry of the last 20 years. The term should be obsolete.

                                                  Even in the physical era it was confusing sometimes when record labels would switch between album sold figures in one case, and then records sold in another case without specifying if they are including physical singles sales or not.

                                                  Then in the digital era is when the term really stopped making sense because digital downloads became so cheap and people could freely download any track from an album for like $0.99. One person could download 5 tracks from an album and that would be five records sold, but if another person paid for and downloaded the whole album, that's just one record sold. Obviously a stupid and useless form of information. So the "records sold" term clearly favours artists who peaked in the digital era, like Rihanna, Gaga, Katy, etc, because of the crazy high digital singles sales.

                                                  But then as we moved into the streaming era, the term really lost all meaning. Obviously a single stream is not a record sold, and different countries use different formulas to convert to equivalent albums. So there is no consistency. But what it does show you is that the conversion is necessary in order to make any total of "records sold", which should just always be called equivalent album sales, EAS. A conversion is also necessary to make sense of digital singles sales, but most people won't do that because it effects their fav's totals negatively. And then we have artists that are smashing in the streaming era that don't benefit from single sales, so they can't reach the crazy high "records sold" totals of artists like Rihanna who were popular only years before them.

                                                  The idea of converting everything to EAS is why I like chartmasters.org, because the guy running it does his best to use formulas that best reflect the sales climate of each era and different types of music consumption. However even he tweaks his formulas from time to time, which will suddenly change the EAS for all artists. And as streaming numbers become higher and higher over the next few years, I imagine most charts around the world will also be tweaking their formulas.

                                                  Let's not even get into the fact that all the numbers on those graphics are made up. Haha.
                                                  _______________



                                                  It's kind of a bummer to see "Matches" dip below 200k daily streams already. I was hoping decent streams would last through the holidays and into January at least. It seems weird to me that Make Me did so much better in 2016, when spotify numbers were so much lower in general. You would think 4.5 years later a Britney and BSB collab would pull similar numbers. But it is what it is.

                                                    Is it really weird, though? Make Me was an actual single and it spent weeks, if not months, inside Today's Top Hits. Britney was actively promoting and the song was actually sent to radio which helps with streams. Matches had no push besides New Music Friday placements and some minor playlists. It's only a promo single after all, similar to Do You Wanna Come Over or Clumsy.
