    Yup... I hope BS9 goes #1 in there

    Why do they reveal only pure-sales figures for Britney and sales + streaming figures for other artists?

    With Britney-mania in full effect since "Make Me" arrived at midnight Friday morning (July 15), let's recap her best-selling albums in the U.S. and song downloads, according to Nielsen Music (while remembering that her 1998 career launch predates the digital download era).

    Albums
    …Baby One More Time (1999), 10.6 million; Oops!...I Did It Again (2000), 9.2 million; Britney (2001), 4.4 million; In the Zone (2003), 3 million; Circus (2008), 1.7 million; Greatest Hits: My Prerogative (2004), 1.5 million; Blackout (2007), 1 million; Femme Fatale (2011), 794,000; Britney Jean (2013), 272,000; The Singles Collection (2009), 260,000

    With 33.4 million albums sold in the U.S., Spears is the 17th-best-selling album artist since Nielsen began tracking sales in 1991. Among women, she's fourth, after Mariah Carey (55 million), Celine Dion (52.6 million) and Shania Twain (34.7 million). After Spears, Reba McEntire rounds out the top five among women (30.5 million).

    Songs
    "Womanizer," 3.5 million downloads sold; "Circus," 3.2 million; "Till the World Ends," 3 million; "3," 2.4 million; "Toxic," 2.3 million

    "Piece of Me," 1.9 million; "Gimme More," 1.84 million; "I Wanna Go," 1.78 million; "Hold It Against Me," 1.6 million; "If U Seek Amy," 1.3 million

    Those 10 songs represent Spears' 10 million-selling downloads. Next on the list: "Work B**ch!," at 967,000.
    TTWE passes 3M and almost 1M for WB.
    Wow, great numbers. 4th biggest female of all time in the US and biggest female of her generation... so impressive

    Yes, those sales and emails were indeed fake. It's more than clear now. Which is why they won't be used anymore. I apologize for the mistake.

    We need to be more careful with our sources now.

    1. There is no such thing as fake emails, RCA provided worldwide sales last year for some songs and albums, not US figures. Those RCA emails are real as they were sent to a real RCA email address and multiple fans sent them emails.

    2. The leaked numbers we thought were real were then backed (or we thought so) by a billboard article that was rounding the sales, and that's what nympho posted in the last page, showing Work Bitch at 1 million. Those numbers came out of a Britney fansite, they were so many and even for non-singles, that we had no reason to believe they were fake. They weren't much different in the end, though. Only Work Bitch had sold a bit less.
    1. Those mails are fake. They make no sense. A fake mail can just be a photoshopped actual mail. Some Britney fans tend to make up receipts a lot, just like this fake Mexican certification for "Pretty Girls."

    2. Britney fans tried to pass off that fake leak as real for almost a year even though those sales were proven to be fake. None of them took the time to explain me how the FFT video managed to sell 40k in three years. But, no surprise they couldn't since that is just impossible. Also, the fact those sales came out of a Britney fansite should have told you immediately they were more than likely fake.

    It doesn't matter anyway... Higher or lower those all were fake emails, and you trusted them and called haters those who said they were fake. You should apologize...
    They also don't seem to understand that if the sales from the fake leak were real then those sales would be higher now and therefore higher than what BB published today.

    And lol @ you being accused of "causing problems & fights" when you've said nothing but the truth. Britney fans were collectively naive (and rude for some of them) but now act like they've been angels the whole time.

    Also, great to see TTWE officially passing 3 million. Her 4th song to cross the 3 million mark (based on pure sales).
    I think Britney will pass Shania in album sales and jump to No.3 as third best selling female artist in the US since 1991.

    If B9 flops, it will contribute between 200K - 300K.
    If B9 is a moderate smash, it will contribute between 300k-500K
    If B9 smashes, it will contribute 500k-1M.

    Britney will reach 34M after B9.

    Do we know if Shania is a good catalog seller? How well does she do compare to Britney?

    Nah, those last leaked figures said "Circus (song)" was at 3,1m, "Till the world ends" at 2,9m and "Toxic" at 2,2m. And now Billlboard says they are at 3,2m , 3m and 2,3m respectively. So its better
    Stop lying.

    And when some users said those were fake, (as record companies don't send emails with sales, Ask Billboard publish it on their web not via email, and anybody could fake that email) they were called "haters" and "to get a life".
    Some should say "Sorry, you were right, those were fake fan-made emails".
    But its ok, since most of this last Billboard numbers are higher than the "fake email ones".
