    I can't back up the Spanish numbers but there's nothing wrong with posting the information.
    Actually I said " poster", the word random was paired with the word article. Read again.

    Record labels dont always post accurate numbers, infact they are often known to exaggerate numbers. I am sure you are aware of this.

      You do realize they can't do that, right? Every time a label makes an official statement about record sales, they will have to pay the related artist royalties accordingly. Thanks for proving once again you know nothing about the music industry and are just looking to argue.

          Please. A record label exec once claimed that Janet Jackson had sales of 100 million albums. I am sure no one was writing her a cheque for royalties. So I doubt it a figure on a flyer actually counts as an "official statement". Also I thought we were just having a discussion. You really cannot handly anyone questioning your numbers.

          • Instinct is a great poster and chart expert who can easily tolerate someone questioning Britney’s numbers as long as the other poster questioning the numbers is someone ... smart LOL

            ... or at least someone that can generate an interesting debate instead of non-sense fights.

              That was clearly referring to 100 million records (including physical singles, DVDs, digital tracks, etc).

              These are not my numbers? I don't work for Britney's record label nor do I write for ABC.es. It's very transparent how you only ever come into this thread to question every single thing that's posted.

                  Thank you I'm not even claiming that's 100% accurate (except for the French numbers, which come straight from her record label). I have no problem when someone proves me wrong as long as they receipts or at least some good reasoning. They have yet to contribute anything and that's the issue.

                  What's wrong with posting an article stating x album sold x amount? Is that not the point of this thread?

                    The Janet article said albums specifically. Nothing else. Albums.

                    Well that is not remotely true. Just the other day I posted about her amazing streaming and how it had revived her catalogue WW and i remember posting about how great it was to see My Only wish be certified Silver in the UK.

                    Also you can post whatever article you want, I simply said it is not an actual source, which it isnt. My intention was not to "prove you wrong"

                      Lol nothing wrong. It’s harmless.

                      Anyways, Instinct who cares how much the album sold (or didn’t sell) in pure sales? .. speaking of pure sales in 2021 feels pointless and dated knowing that most countries include streaming numbers in their certification’s criteria these days.... so “Britney” (album) might be even higher than those old pure sales numbers from those articles when we consider the addition of the streaming units to keep on with the current trends and times.

                        Yeah that's true. I'm only really posting about it because it goes to show how undercertified she really is even without taking streaming into account (again, assuming the numbers are accurate). Also as much as I appreciate ChartMasters, they really do underestimate her sales sometimes.

                          It is a shame that certifications are not automatic in every country like the UK. Do any other countries automatically certify ?

                                    They did a terrible job with "3". Looks like they used the free trial of Remini for a sec. But I'll stop complaining I haven’t seen the others yet.

                                        https://www.abc.es/estilo/gente/abci...4_noticia.html

                                        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.

                                        That's great! Maybe we should send Chartmasters these receipts and they might use them for Britney's next sales update.

                                                  Ya it's nice to see a newer song not totally tanking. Especially because lots of people are checking for Britney right now, they might notice that Glory was re-released (or notice Glory at all for the first time haha). I actually think Matches being at the top of the "This is: Britney Spears" playlist is probably getting it quite a few plays. Most people who use spotify know that the "This Is" playlists are the best for greatest hits, and the buzz around Britney will bring people there.

                                                  FYi, Matches does have some play listing. It's been on the top half of the "Pop All Day" list since its release. That is a small playlist tho with only 460k followers.

                                                    It’s incredible the way “Gimme More” escalated that much .... If it continues increasing like that it’ll get close to “Baby One More Time” updates.
