    Happy anniversary to "Toxic"! IMO her magnum opus!

    This is Britney's top catalog seller and one of the most famous Pop songs of the 2000s.

    Despite being released prior to the Digital era it has sold over 5,5million units in pure sales (according to MJD from Chartmasters) and counting!. This will definately surpass 6m eventually, this song is always relevant.

    "Toxic" was released 14 years ago today!


    "Toxic" is a song recorded by American singer Britney Spears for her fourth studio album In the Zone (2003). It was written and produced by Christian Karlsson and Pontus Winnberg (known collectively as Bloodshy & Avant), with additional writing from Cathy Dennis and Henrik Jonback. The song released on January 13, 2004, by Jive Records, as the second single from In the Zone. The song was originally offered to Kylie Minogue for her ninth studio album Body Language (2003), but she rejected it. After trying to choose between "(I Got That) Boom Boom" and "Outrageous" to be the second single from In the Zone, Spears selected "Toxic" instead. A dance song with elements of bhangra music, "Toxic" features varied instrumentation, such as drums, synthesizers and surf guitar. It is accompanied by high-pitched Bollywood strings, sampled from Lata Mangeshkar and S. P. Balasubrahmanyam's "Tere Mere Beech Mein" (1981), and breathy vocals. Its lyrics draw an extended metaphor of a lover as a dangerous yet addictive drug.

    20. Whitney - Whitney Houston - 19,000,000

    Am I forgetting / excluding someone?

    I think that it will be extremely hard that a new female album get close to these numbers in the future. At least I don't think its happening anytime soon. Artists like Adele are like 1 in a decade phenomenom.
    This is a good list Some might argue different numbers for some of these releases, but you're not missing anyone and I believe all of these albums belong in this list.

    "Hold it against me" hit charts strong and was a defining #1 hit according to Billboard:

    The 75 Moments That Defined the Decade in Music (So Far)

    January 29, 2011: Britney Spears' "Hold It Against Me" debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100
    Britney Spears' Femme Fatale lead single, helmed by the early-'10s dream team of Max Martin, Dr. Luke, and Bonnie McKee, immediately returned the pop legend to the top of the charts with her first release of the new decade. But the success of "Hold It Against Me" would have implications well beyond the artists involved: The song was one of the first major hits to employ a dubstep breakdown, establishing the largely underground EDM phenomenon within the pop mainstream. Soon, smashes by Justin Bieber, Flo Rida and JAY-Z and Kanye West would drop down the rabbit hole after Britney. -- A.U.

    The single has sold over 3,7million units in pure sales according to MJD from Chartmasters.

    2017: $38,882,634 (60 shows) [$648,043 average]

    $551,033 average per show overall
    So 2017 was the best year

    I think she could have easily extended this for another 2 years and would have kept selling and even grossing higher.

    She simply wanted to close the show and move on to new ventures.

    Around 55K equivalent units for "Glory" in 2017.
    Not too shabby, not great, could be better, but 55k considering no single came last year, with other streaming services and Pure Sales glory may have sold more than 100k globally last year
