    Yeah, I wonder why! The video was so popular back then because it was directed by Herb Ritts and Britney and her love interest made quite the headlines too! I feel like the image was so raunchy that it felt like a Britney era song more than an Oops! song to be honest.

    Boys is at least in Goldmember and that gets played on US television quite often. It will continue to be known because of that. Break the Ice I think is a "gay classic" for younger fans so again I think that helps it.

    It's such a shame Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know is mostly forgotten. It's one of her best ballads in my opinion.

    Well here in Latin America, "Break the ice" is the least known out of those 5 songs

    "Don't let me be the last to know" and "Criminal" were popular here (DLMBTLTK is indeed forgotten tho), and "I love Rock N Roll" and "Boys" were massive on Latin MTV with heavy rotation, so people of my age that grew up with MTV when it was still cool can identify those Britney songs here.

    "Break the ice" came out at a time when MTV was not about music videos anymore and the overall "Blackout" era wasn't really that big here. So people didn't really know that song here.

    ----

    Overall I would agree with you that her most popular flop would be between "Break the Ice" and "Criminal" on a global scale.

    I think it truly depends on where you live. For example, "Boys" was easily the biggest hit in the UK, while "I Love Rock 'N' Roll was the biggest hit in Australia / Germany and "Criminal" was the biggest hit in France / Canada. I'd say "Break the Ice" was the biggest hit in the US and Canada by a mile.

    "Criminal" was a very nice Top 20 hit in France and Canada, plus a Top 10 hit in Russia (among other countries) and a smash in Brazil, but it failed to chart in many important markets like the UK, Germany, Australia, Italy, etc. Overall I'd argue it was the second most successful single after "Break the Ice".

    Btw, it should be added that "Criminal" was a Top 20 airplay hit in Spain. Pretty cool since I believe she doesn't get much airplay there ever since 2007.

    My ranking:
    1. Break the Ice
    2. Criminal
    3. Boys
    4. I Love Rock 'N' Roll
    5. Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know

    As much as I love "Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know", I feel like it's one of the most forgotten singles she's ever released. Out of all the songs mentioned, it is the only one with under 10 million streams on Spotify. And it didn't even chart on the Bubbling Under chart in the US, something even the "Britney" singles managed to do.

    I think I worded it wrong . . . I meant these are her Biggest / most successful singles (out of her flop ones).

    Let me edit the original post

    ------

    Having seen the stats, amount of Top 10s, amount of Top 20s, the markets they cracked and their streaming numbers how would you rank them in terms of success?

    I'd say:

    1. Criminal (her most streamed flop, plus it smashed at #1 in Brazil for multiple weeks)
    2. Break the ice (almost made the Top 40 in US, cracked the Top 10 in some good markets and has the second best streaming)
    3. Don't Let me be the last to know (Made every major international market, plenty of Top 20 entries, decent video views for a 2001 flop song)
    4. Boys (Top 10 in UK, lots of Top 20s, decent video views for a 2002 flop song)
    5. I Love Rock N Roll (Similar stats to "Boys" but less impact, and the least watched music video out of the 5)

    Yas! at "Blackout" being her biggest album in Russia

    Mess @ the amount of effort put onto that fake PDF file

    Anyway, we do have Britney's official sales in Russia, and like MJD stated, she has extraordinary results there. 300,000 records (albums) sold as of June 2009.

    Since 2003, Britney has been getting extraordinary results there, averaging over 50,000 copies per album until Circus. By 2009, she had sold 300,000 records in the country, while we know singles are non-existent. This gives us some 90,000 units sold by her first three albums. As the Russian market hasn’t been following the same patterns of other countries, I’ll simply divide that tally into 3.

    Merging all the data together concludes on the following album sales to date:

    ...Baby One More Time – 30,000
    Oops!… I did It Again – 30,000
    Britney – 30,000
    In The Zone – 50,000
    Greatest Hits, My Prerogative – 60,000
    Blackout – 60,000
    Circus – 40,000
    The Singles Collection – 9,500
    + "Femme Fatale" was the 16th best-selling album of the year, scoring a Platinum certification (10,000 units)

    "Glory" peaked at #3 and I don't care enough to check for "Britney Jean". Russia must be the only country in the world where "Blackout" is her best-selling album.

    If Britney did more promo and if the rollout is really good, she can get another US #1 debut with an album. A hot uptempo would be a killer lead single.

    Wasn't Platinum for international artists in Russia 20K back in the day?? .... I think it was reduced to 10K this decade.

    Of course, people on ATRL are eating all this like it's legit…

    That's the problem with info from countries we usually don't get info from, like Russia or Asian countries, and where the vast majority of online fans don't speak the language… people quickly believes what they read.

    All the info comes from a web called INSIDERS SPACE, who claim to have
    "Exclusive information from trusted insiders in the world music industry".

    That chart is fake...

    A .pdf uploaded on a web to upload your own pdf's….

    Platinum for international artists is 10k in Russia, Gold 5k. (Not 20k and 10k). There's no Silver and Bronze awards in Russia.

    https://web.archive.org/web/20120810090 ... levels.pdf

    Liberation certified Gold or Everything Is Love certified bronze… while Madonna, Celine Dion, Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Adele, Taylor Swift... not having a single album certified.

    (When Hard Candy, MDNA, Celebration, The Fame, BTW, Taking Chances, etc. were officialy certified in Russia and published on Lenta.ru and 2m-online.ru websites back in the day)

    I mean... it's time for a #1 album in the UK

    Yeah, but at least she has 7 Top 5 albums in the UK which is a very good result nonetheless

    Speaking of Germany...

    1. Madonna - 12
    2. Alanis Morissette, Britney Spears, Whitney Houston - 3
    3. Adele, Amy Macdonald, Anastacia, Avril Lavigne, Celine Dion, Cher, Jennifer Rush, Lady Gaga, Mariah Carey, Norah Jones, P!nk, Tina Turner, Tracy Chapman - 2

    I believe these are the only international females with at least two #1 albums in Germany, which shows how difficult it really is to score a #1 album over there. She's tied with Alanis and Whitney for second most #1 albums as far as international female acts are concerned.

    @ Madonna's slayage.

    that poor album . . . . . Wasn't "Britney Jean" #1 in China or something like that tho?

    Great list @Instinct. I think its shocking and unlucky the fact that she has 5 (five) #2 albums in UK . . yet I have to say that is even harder for other artists to get a #1 album in Germany, France and especially Japan and she has them.

    Yes I'm glad her VEVO is managed properly. "Overprotected (darkchild remix)" is the only music video that is missing on her channel. They probably forgot it exists

    What's your source for all these yearly charts you're posting? I mean, are you taking the info from some web or something, or just looking on YouTube the figures of female artists that come to your mind from that year?


    2013
    1. Katy Perry - Roar (Official) 2,534,151,091
    2. Ellie Goulding - Burn 1,241,793,563

    14. Beyoncé - Drunk in Love (Explicit) ft. JAY Z 469,790,302

    24. Britney Spears - Work B**ch 282,085,084

    https://kworb.net/youtube/topvideos_published_2013.HTML

    Kworb only has these lists per year from 2010 onwards, so I'm not going to check all the other yearly charts you posted to see if there are mistakes there as well…

    All time female videos:
    https://kworb.net/youtube/topvideos_female.html

    And videos released before 2010:
    https://kworb.net/youtube/topvideos_pub ... rlier.html

    In case you need them.

    The problem with the pre-YouTube era videos is that, despite all the songs being released on that same year, the videos were later uploaded to YouTube at different times... Most of them 8-9 years ago, but some, later. So some of them have that disadvantage.
