    RCA is probably to cheap to spend any money on that.
    ? Girls' Generation ?
    ? HyoYeon ? Britney Spears ?

    Girls' Generation is the best-selling girl group of all time.

    • It's because current label doesn't care about records that were released before in different label.

        Well, but she is their artist now so they should care about her achievements.

        • If they have the power to make her recent efforts (Circus, Femme Fatale, her singles) multi-platinum they really should..
          we will rise to meet the challenge every time

          • RCA is probably the worst label when it comes to certifications. Even Epic is better at it. They should at least certify Work Bitch, Pretty Girls, Perfume (if eligible), and Britney Jean.

            Here are my estimations of what her single certifications should look like. For every song, I'm assuming 35% of its streams come from the United States (this is based off what Billboard reported about Work Bitch's streams back in 2013). Only VEVO and Spotify are being counted so this is not the end of it. Many could be higher.

            • Billboard's Top Money Makers Of 2015:



              Vegas has been good for Spears. For an act without an album, she sold a respectable 923,000 digital tracks, generated 350 million streams and earned her songs $500,000-plus in publishing royalties. She reaped only $31,000 of that though, because she uses outside songwriters.

              • ^ Cool, according to the list, Britney was the 5th top female musician earner of the 2015 year.

                Females

                1. Taylor Swift (#1) - $73,5m
                2. Adele (#9) - $20,5m
                3. Shania Twain (#12) - $14,4m
                4. Madonna (#14) - $12,7m
                5. Britney Spears (#22) - $10,6m

                Top 5 is pretty decent for someone who didn't release an album or new era in 2015. Her earnings were not much different than those of Madonna who release a studio album and toured in 2015. Also surprised that many other newer females such as Rihanna, Lady Gaga, or Katy Perry are bellow Britney. I mean its not like Britney did that much in 2015.

                      From what I remember MJdangerous had estimated that ITZ was 200k, and GH:MP at 100k.

                          For sure! I would even go as far as to say GH:MP and TSC will both go top20 on itunes!

                            I don't think so. Billboard Awards are not as big as the Grammys. Her compilations would probably go back to top 200 but thats it (unless they discount them which would make them chart very high), IMO the performance will generate more buzz towards her upcoming new era rather than her past catalogue.

                              The added combo of Britney opening the show, plus Madonna tributing Prince, Celine, Rihanna, and P!nk performing should bring higher ratings than usual.

                                    • I really think we need confirmation on Britney Spears album and single sales

                                      I noticed billboard said Rihanna has sold 60 million albums and 215 million singles!!

                                      That's 275 million records!!! OMG she is gunna pass 300 million and she is only 28 years old!!!

                                      I think Britney has sold 80 million albums and 110 million singles! Plus dvd sales so around 210 million records however im really unsure and think billboard need to confirm it! She is bloody opening the show

                                                What does this have to do with Britney
                                                I was responding to this;

                                                I noticed billboard said Rihanna has sold 60 million albums and 215 million singles!!

                                                That's 275 million records!!! OMG she is gunna pass 300 million and she is only 28 years old!!!

                                                I think Britney has sold 80 million albums and 110 million singles! Plus dvd sales so around 210 million records however im really unsure and think billboard need to confirm it! She is bloody opening the show
                                                But I should've posted my thoughts/facts in her thread, seems like a lot of people have.

                                                    • iTunes has discounted all of Britney's albums to $6.99



                                                      The BBMAs effect should be bigger now.
