    None of those songs or music videos were released in the 2000 year tho. Maybe you just didn't read well?

    Whenever Wherever and Complicated were released in 2001 and 2002, respectively. Please read again before bringing irrelevant non-sense into this thread, thanks!

    Weirdly enough, and despite only getting released in Europe, "Born to Make You Happy" is getting more views than both "3" and "Hold It Against Me".

    Other than that, I agree with your analysis. The trinity ("Toxic", "...Baby One More Time", "Oops!... I Did It Again") remains untouchable, "Womanizer" feels more iconic than ever, and "Everytime" is her best catalog seller in the UK and one of her most streamed pre-2008 songs on YouTube and Spotify. The rest are all 100% forgotten IMO.
    Thanks for that info @Instinct, so yeah based on the numbers and stats you posted it seems like "Hold it against me" is getting even more forgotten than "3" by now.

    While "3" is definitely pretty forgotten, I'd argue "Hold It Against Me" is even more forgotten, as its recurrent streams, sales and airplay are actually worse.

    "3"

    Other than that, I agree with your analysis. The trinity ("Toxic", "...Baby One More Time", "Oops!...

    Britney's had 10 #1 US / UK hits over her career.

    Chronologically:

    - Baby one more time
    - Born to make you happy
    - Oops I did it again
    - Toxic
    - Everytime
    - Womanizer
    - 3
    - Hold it against me
    - S&M Remix
    - Scream & Shout

    If I had to rank them from the most impactful to the most forgotten #1 the rank would be:

    1) Toxic
    2) Baby one more time
    3) Oops I did it again
    4) Womanizer
    5) Everytime
    6) Scream & Shout
    7) Hold it against me
    8) 3
    9) Born to make you happy
    10) S&M Remix


    I think the first half (from 1 to 5) held up pretty well, they all have decent recurrent stats and are signature hits in Britney's career. The second half (from 6 to 10) on the other hand is quite patchy.

    "3" was a popular #1 back in 2009 (11 weeks inside top 10, Pop radio success, solid sales, etc) but it is very forgotten now with tragic streaming and poor recurrent activity.

    I agree, I feel that post from the mod was completely out of order and actually a form of bullying towards mr Lenox, it’s a discussion about glory in a Britney Spears chart thread

    "Glory" is a Britney Spears album and I can discuss everything about it, it doesn't matter if it was released 2 years ago, we also discuss here about "Blackout", "Circus", "Femme Fatale", "In the zone" etc. its not like we can't mention "Glory" or what I felt about its chart performance in a Britney Spears: Charts & Sales History Thread. By the way "Make Me" is officially turning 2 years next month and Glory's anniversary is in 2 months so we will likely post about "Glory" again in those months, hope people don't mind it.

    I'm in a Britney Spears thread, I'm not attacking anyone, I'm not visiting other threads, I'm not trolling other non-Britney topics or going off topic and I didn't mention any name because what I posted doesn't necessarily has to be about Xtina, what I posted its a general notorious issue that has happened recently, many artists lately having these terrible debuts and people saying "Great" (Hilary Duff, Gwen Stefani, Kelly Clarkson, etc) and the fact that when Britney does something decent people say its bad. It is simply a thought.

    As for stopping mentioning something else about "Glory", I will stop because I already posted and said what I thought about it yesterday, so don't worry we won't likely keep on going with it.

    And reporting? LOL that doesn't work, I have tried it in the past and mods do nothing in most occassions.

    Mr. Leonix and Instinct:

    I let it go yesterday, but I see you keep going with the same discussion…

    I'd like to remind you that you just came back from a 7 day ban from trolling in Christina's thread.
    The fact that you're avoiding to say her name and that you're posting it in this thread instead of hers doesn't change the fact that you keep doing it.
    You both seem too bothered about people being happy or celebrating her opening numbers in US so you felt the need to come here and be really shady about it, bringing Britney into the equation and talking over and over about a supossed dragging when Glory came out… 2 years ago.

    Even if that dragging happened (which, in my opinion, didn't), saying it's easier to get good peaks in Summer or that sales are lower in Summer is not dragging, it's a fact... as I said myself yesterday, it'll happen the same with Liberation surpassing Lotus peaks. Anyway, what's the point of bringing it now if not to flame bait?

    So I'm going to ask you to please stop if you don't want this to go further and this thread being locked, etc.

    If you see something in Christina's thread that you feel is an attack or trolling towards Britney or whatever (as it happened yesterday), report it and it will be dealt with. But don't start a stan war yourselves here.

    Thank you.

    It should be noted that Brazil's official album chart is limited to a Top 10, so spending five weeks inside the chart is a very good result. "Britney Jean" never made the Top 10 in Brazil, in fact, its shipments were quite frontloaded

    "Glory" was actually selling, as proven by its chart run, so there was demand to ship new copies to stores

    AA15000
    AB5000

    Yeah I remember this, it did good in Brazil.

    She most certainly got dragged for debuting with 111K, and mostly by the same people who seem to be okay with lower debuts. It's not surprising though, even "Femme Fatale" got dragged for debuting with 276K. She's one of the few artists who get dragged no matter how much they might sell or how high they might debut. The double standards are real.

Obviously not everyone can do that (not even during the summer) but she was treated like a piece of sh*t to be honest.

    People have always been so pressed about her for some reason, like when she debuted at #2 in UK people were trying the most to dismiss the peak in any sense: "It wasn't that good", "its summer everyone easily charts high now", etc.
    Lol Mr.Leonix this thread was bumped up a lot in the last day because you chose to be petty and throw unnecessary shade. You should learn to be less insecure about Britney's achievements.

    Originally posted by MrLeonix
    I remember how "Glory" opened with 111,000 units without any ticket bundle and people were like "Horrible numbers", "she's over", "tragic", etc.

    . . . And now we see so many people praising way worse numbers than those.
    Honestly you're reaching, she was not treated like a "piece of sh*t" about her first week sales. I think you just wanted to be shady lol In fact I think general consensus was that she improved upon BJ's numbers and did well during that first week.

    BTW, another myth that needs to de debunked is that Glory's drops on second week were horrible and out of every chart. More extreme markets for her like UK or Germany are not the only countries in the world.

    There were several other markets were "Glory" was still charting inside the Top 10 / Top 20 on its second week:


    Belgium Flanders #3 - #14
    Belgium Wallonia #4 - #6
    Canada #4 - #16
    Czech Republic #1 - #11
    Hungary #10 - #10
    Italy #1 - #3
    Mexico #5 - #7
    Portugal #3 - #18
    Spain #2 - #7
    Taiwan #1 - #1
    USA #3 - #12
    I quite liked Glory's chart run in Brazil!

    Brazil: # 2 - 4 - 3 - 5 - 4
    It should be noted that Brazil's official album chart is limited to a Top 10, so spending five weeks inside the chart is a very good result. "Britney Jean" never made the Top 10 in Brazil, in fact, its shipments were quite frontloaded

    AA25000
    AB7000
    AC5000
    "Glory" was actually selling, as proven by its chart run, so there was demand to ship new copies to stores

    AA15000
    AB5000
    AC2000
    AD3000
    AE3000
    AF4000
    AG3000
    AH5000
    In Mexico, "Glory" spent 10 weeks inside the Top 100 and ended up at #87 on the Year-End chart, overtaking some hit albums from that year, like "ANTI" and "Lemonade".

    And it actually did okay in some European countries, at least for like four weeks or so.

    Spain - # 2 - 7 - 4 - 22
    Italy - # 1 - 3 - 25 - 44 - 66
    Belgium (Flanders) - # 3 - 14 - 23 - 51 - 107 - 89 - 142 - 186
    Belgium (Wallonia) - # 4 - 6 - 27 - 29 - 46 - 51 - 88 - 173 - 188 - 131 (#142 on the Year-End Chart)
    In Italy, Glory's second week (#3) would be good enough to outpeak all her other albums

    #1 "Glory"
    #3 "Glory" (second week)
    #4 "Femme Fatale"
    #5 "Oops!... I Did It Again"
    #6 "Blackout"
    #8 "...Baby One More Time"
    #9 "Circus"
    #10 "Britney"
    In Spain, "Glory" spent as many weeks inside the Top 10 as "Blackout", "Circus", "Femme Fatale" and "Britney Jean" did combined

    "Glory" - 3 weeks
    "Femme Fatale" - 2 weeks
    "Circus" - 1 week
    "Blackout" - 0 weeks
    "Britney Jean" - 0 weeks
    Asia showed some love as well

    Taiwan - # 1 - 1 - 1 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 10 - 13 - 20 - 11 - 20 - 12 - 2 - 3 - 5
    Hong Kong - # 6 - 8 - 10 - 15 - 20 - 20
    But anyway, no one is claiming "Glory" was a successful album, we're just saying it had great/good peaks around the world. which is true. And not every flop album can achieve that - not even during the summer. Flopping and scoring good debuts will always look better than flopping and scoring bad debuts.

    At the end of the day...

    In Italy, "Glory" became her first #1 album ever
    In Czech Republic, "Glory" became her first #1 album ever
    In Brazil, "Glory" became her highest peaking album ever
    In the UK, "Glory" became her highest peaking album in 9 years
    In Germany, "Glory" became her highest peaking album in 13 years
    In Spain, "Glory" became her highest peaking album in 16 years
    In Belgium, "Glory" became her highest peaking album in 15 years
    In Ireland, "Glory" became her highest peaking album in 9 years
    In Austria, "Glory" became her highest peaking album in 9 years
    In Poland, "Glory" became her highest peaking album in 15 years

    According to Mediatraffic which was still estimating pure sales (only) at the time, "Glory" had a 73% drop on its second week which wasn't good but not that far away to some other usual second week drops (most albums drop about 67% - 70% on second week, that was the % drop of Justin Timberlake's and Gaga's last albums). There have been albums with 80% drops on second week.

    I'm amazed by the amount of random users that are visiting the thread, Britney is definately highly analyzed and monitored every day.

    ^

    Disagree. Peak without logenvity could be quoted but doesn't become remarkable.

    Toxic was #9 and is much more remarkable than #1 Hold it Against Me.

    Sure. It has sold over 20K there tho, but yeah it was a flop. No one is saying otherwise. I was rather addressing how people rave about much worse debuts than that one.

    I'd rather have a flop album with a great peak than getting a flop album that misses the top 10 and that will still be out of the chart on second week anyway. If you're going to flop give me the peak at least.

    Peaks are what people, media and press remember anyway: "the top 10 single", "the top 10 album", "the number hit", etc no one remembers or refers to albums as "the album that spent xx weeks on chart" outside of limited chart forums.

    - Sold out Arenas, Stadiums and Parks in Asia

    ----

    - I'm confident that her next album could open with +100K if they pull a ticket bundle (she's never had one before).

    Glory was bigger flop than BJ for me...

    Yes she was dragged and her peaks were completely dismissed. People were like "Oh those peaks have no merit because its super easy to chart high around summer, everyone can do that" .... Obviously not everyone can do that (not even during the summer) but she was treated like a piece of sh*t to be honest.

    People have always been so pressed about her for some reason, like when she debuted at #2 in UK people were trying the most to dismiss the peak in any sense: "It wasn't that good", "its summer everyone easily charts high now", etc.

    If she continues with Vegas there will be no ticket bundle. I'm quite sure there wasn't one for Glory due to her contract. That's the only reasonable explanation.
