    I don't like these rules though. I wish we had 2011 rules again.
    Well, with this rule several other "flop" albums will go Gold as well, so its not that special for "Britney Jean". On the other hand "Circus" getting 2x Platinum is very cool

    That would be great. How much streaming do you estimate for "Femme Fatale" in the USA?

      It's hard to estimate tbh, but worldwide

      546,996,919 views on VEVO = 164,654,911 plays on Spotify = 711,651,830 overall streams. Probably more when you include other streaming services. I'd guess about half of that comes from the US?

      Overall I'd estimate

      ...Baby One More Time - 14x Platinum
      Oops!... I Did It Again - 11x Platinum
      Britney - 5x Platinum
      In The Zone - 4x Platinum
      Greatest Hits: My Prerogative - 2x Platinum
      Blackout - Platinum
      Circus - 2x Platinum
      The Singles Collection - Gold
      Femme Fatale - 1x Platinum/2x Platinum
      Britney Jean - Gold

      Some albums could be higher depending on their music club sales/shipments, like OIDIA or Britney.

      • Ok thanks.

        "Circus" makes nearly 1million extra units bases on digital sales alone, that rises the album from +1,7m to 2,7m. How strong is "Circus" streaming in the US? Its quite short to 3x Platinum actually.

        Nothing will happen if her label doesn't pay for these certifications updates tho. Hopefully they do something about it.

        • You're right, Circus is very, very close to 3x Platinum. Her total RIAA total should more more than 40x Platinum. Massive.

          I really wish the RIAA was automatic like the BPI. If they haven't certified any of her singles, I'm doubtful they will do anything about the albums. Maybe I'm wrong though.

          • @MrLeonix, @JadeBritx,
            Maybe if someone could go back to the singles/era threads to see how much streams Work Bitch or Pretty Girls got (reported by Billboard) on video debut weeks... My guess is that it should be safer to say US streams account for 25-35% of her total, though it's hard to know.

            I do remember Work Bitch getting around 25% of the total streams on its video debut week in the US.

                "RIAA will include on-demand audio and video streams a track sale equivalent in Gold & Platinum (G&P's) Album Award".

                    • It clearly says: "A track sale equivalent". I'm confused now.

                      Well, if they only count streaming, then "Circus" would be her only album eligible for rising in certification to Double Platinum. If it counts track equivalent sales then several of her albums would be eligible for update.

                          No digital single sales!
                          I know how it works, but I've read two different articles about the "New rules" and one of them mentions "Track sales equivalent" as well.

                            • Work Bitch

                              Youtube + Vevo (official audio, videos, uploaded by third parties, remixes, live performances, dance videos, etc): 253,000,000+ on its first 200 most watched videos. I don't have time to go through the rest probably makes about 255 million since there are thousands of performance videos.

                              Spotify: 72,077,807

                              Youtube + Spotify: 325,000,000+

                              What other streaming services are we missing (that Billboard/RIAA count as on-demand services)? Pandora? Apple Music?? Tidal ?
                              What other WORLDWIDE streaming services are we missing so we can estimate its ww streams?

                              I'd say it tops 350 million WW for sure, but maybe there's some service as big as spotify in other countries, then it could be 400 million or more.

                                                    Great that it's increasing though!
