    It is amazing these days what decent streaming numbers can do for an album on the charts.

    The #freeBritney movement has clearly reignited interest in her catalogue worldwide.

              • Till The World Ends can still grow on streaming so Femme Fatale might start doing 10M monthly streams eventually. As for Hold It Against Me I guess it’d probably need to go viral on Tik Tok or something like that

                  “Hold It Against Me” is like “Me Against The Music” ... they won’t ever get revived / viral no matter what.

                  “Femme Fatale” already has a song doing pretty good on Spotify for many months now (“Criminal”) and yes, I do see some potential on TTWE and IWG getting a revival with some Tik Tok support or something in the future ... but HIAM is d*mned and cursed forever.

                    Sadly Britneys team and probably herself just ignored the song through the years but if it would get some playlist support or something it would do much better...the fact it’s dated and sound old doesn’t mean it wouldn’t fit to a ‘10 playlist

                    for matm the case is different, it was overshadowed by toxic (like all her stuff from 2003-4) back then and till today

                    • I think every artist has certain hits that just don't stand the test of time or translate well into the streaming era no matter how big they were initially. It's especially common for those with long careers and hits spawning decades. You can't expect everything to smash.

                      Look at Madonna's Music for example (huge #1 hit all around the world, only 42 million streams).

                        Well, HIAM was outshadowed (and big time) by TTWE too. And also in order for a song to get playlist support there needs to be demand for it, songs are not playlisted randomly or just because. There’s no demand for HIAM so it won’t be playlisted anywhere anytime soon.

                        Exactly, not every song can smash. Britney already has several other songs doing very good at the moment and it’s hard to have them all smashing.

                        Also it’s very unpredictable to know which song will get revived or get a boost next, like for example it’s happening at the moment with “If U Seek Amy” which has been pulling solid numbers for the last weeks now. And I didn’t see that coming, it was a surprise (in the same way it happened to “Criminal”).

                        • I think that 'HIAM' just needs time. In fact, Britney didn't promoted it through the years like other songs and it's got forgotten even by her fanbase. During this new whole decade, will certain have a throwback/revival moment to genres (as Disco in 2019) that dominated early-2011 like electro and dubstep and HIAM will certain benefit from that.

                            Pretty much! And it's not like ITZ and FF are struggling. They're being represented by other songs (Toxic and Criminal). I actually like that unlike her other albums, it's not the lead single that's the biggest.

                            In addition, Everytime, TTWE and IWG also pull good numbers. They range between 80-110M streams, so hardly anything to cry about.

                            • I don’t get why some fans are so interested on HIAM getting revived. Don’t get me wrong, I love the song and I think it’s one of her finest singles ever but there’s no demand for it and that’s ok.

                              I honestly think that if a dance-Electro 10s nostalgia wave eventually comes back at some point either “Till The World Ends” or “I Wanna Go” will get the benefit first or the priority over “Hold It Against me”.

                              HIAM (Imo) is her MATM of the 10s, that forgotten hit lead single that won’t stand the test of time ever. Look at MATM, it will turn 20 years of released in a couple years and still forgotten with nothing able to revive it. HIAM will kinda follow that route which means that 20 years after it’s release (in 2031) it will likely still remain forgotten.

                                Because this song was a hit back then and they just burned it this song wasn’t encore on the piece of me like ttwe and wasn’t the opening song like work, I’m glad ttwe and iwg doing nice but for the attention they got through the years they are not much better than hold...the song wasn’t include in her Pom tour not even in her remix album and its f**ing #1 song in the us and the last performance we remember with it was from the gma... as her fan I like seeing her as a hitmaker not just because oops baby and toxic...she has much more stuff the world love and don’t remember...

                                • Even the picture of this music video in YouTube was changed last year and it was the first time since 2011

                                  • For matm it also needs time cause the song wasn’t that catchy and toxic kinda hurt it but it’s still one of the videos that shows her in the best and with Madonna no one actually knows what will happen next just like no one would guess criminal will be the most streamed single from ff, let’s not forget oops was also considered forgettable in 2016 and you see how it’s doing today

                                      • So glad that Britney of the 2010s is finally being given the respect she deserves.
                                        we will rise to meet the challenge every time

                                        • According to this, "Britney" sold 250K copies in Spain as of March 2002
                                          Las canciones que aparecen en la película fueron elegidas personalmente por ella y pertenecen a su último trabajo «Britney», álbum del que tan sólo en España ha vendido 250.000 ejemplares.

                                          ChartMasters has it at 150K as of 2019. Combine that with the fact it had sold 500K in France by September 2002 while ChartMasters has it at 425K, and that's nearly 200K sales missing, assuming it has sold 0 copies since then.

                                            Maybe we can assume it has sold at least 280k copies in Spain overall? If it was at 250k by March 2002 and assuming it kept selling well throughout the year 280k seems a reasonable figure. I don’t know if it could be as high as 300k because teen pop albums usually don’t have strong catalog sales and GH:MP most likely ate up a big chunk of possible catalog sales too

                                            • The record company may have been counting shipments as opposed to actual consumer sales.

                                              And how would abc.es have access to accurate sales figures ? I mean its not an actual source.

                                                If this is accurate, then yeah. 300K seems like too much.

                                                Shipments are sales.

                                                  Well regardless just because something was written on a poster or in a random article doesnt make it true or definitely accurate. I mean be realistic.

                                                    It's not a "random poster" but a flyer distributed by her record label. That's as official as it gets. Don't speak on things you clearly know nothing about.

                                                    I can't back up the Spanish numbers but there's nothing wrong with posting the information.
