    So Britney has sold 100 million pure single sales and 76 million pure album sales, so around 176 million pure record sales

    With streams a total of 100 million alhum album sales so that’s 200 million SPS roughly?

    "Greatest Hits: My Prerogative" shipped 4,4million units in less than 2 months of release.



    Chartmasters: Official Global Top Sellers of 2004 – with Sales

    #13 Britney Spears – Greatest Hits: My Prerogative – 4,400,000

    With a jump of 700,000 sales to 4,4 million with the #13 album in this ranking is Britney Spears‘ first compilation Greatest Hits: My Prerogative. It is always difficult to sell a best of when all your studio albums are already owned by most of your target audience. However, the American pop star still did so in great fashion.

    The positive feedback provided by Toxic and Everytime gave her enough credibility to succeed with this package by opening a slightly older audience for her. As this is the first Christmas cash-in we met, we need to point out that November releases always enjoy heavy shipments upon release, leading to a notable gap between sales to consumers and sales to retailers by the end of December.

    It takes nothing away from the success of this package which enjoyed the last days of mega-compilations, getting released precisely when iTunes was created. Unlike albums mentioned previously in this ranking, sales of this set were perfectly balanced all over the world. It made the Top 5 in every relevant market, including the always hard to break Japan where it shot to #1.
    Source: http://chartmasters.org/2018/02/officia ... h-sales/9/

    ------


    The album was released on November 3, 2004 and managed to become the 13th biggest album of that year with less than 2 months of release. Shipments were huge in short time and demand for it was big.

    As of 2018, "Greatest Hits: My Prerogative" has sold over 6million units (pure sales) worldwide as MJD estimates and was a big international success selling over 1million in UK and almost 1million in Japan where it debuted at #1 on the Oricon chart, an extreme hard feat for foreign acts (this was IMO the biggest and the most valuable chart achievement that this album brought to Britney's chart history and career). It is Spears' best selling album in Japan and only #1.

    The album was supported with 2 singles ("My Prerogative" and "Do Somethin") which became international hit singles for Britney peaking within the Top 10 in many countries, in addition of 2 promo releases with the itunes promo song "(I've just begun) having my fun" and a Chris Cox Megamix. A successful DVD was issued to promote the release.

    Sometimes we forget this album was as big as a Studio album and was basically another era in her career ...... We forget mentioning it when we discuss her big eras.

    Yes, there are actually several supportive European markets for Britney like France, Ireland, Belgium, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, etc.

    I was just thinking how Britney was the only American teen pop act who truly made it big in the UK and France.

    American Teen Pop music rarely had big international repercution I don't remember Debbie Gibson, Tiffany, Hilary Duff or the likes of Hannah Montana, Demi Lovato, etc making much waves outside the US. Its not that easy to export that music genre.

    There are markets that are harder to crack with certain genres and especially Teen Pop music like France or the UK. Britney was a weird case, being American and selling +1m with a Teen Pop album in UK while smashing in France wasn't usual.

    Also the way her first single smashed was unprecedented not only for a Teen Pop song but even in general for a debut single. I don't think there are many debut singles that worked that way.

    Baby one more time (song)

    Australia - 9 weeks at #1
    Austria - 8 weeks at #1
    Belgium Flanders - 8 weeks at #1
    Belgium Wallonia - 9 weeks at #1

    I'd say Ireland is undoubtedly one of her strongest markets. From 1999 until 2008, she only missed the Top 10 once (with "Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know", which peaked at #12). And not only that, but she has the most #1s there for a female artist, tied with the Queen of Pop Madonna.

    20 years later she just scored another #1 album and another sold out arena show there.
    Yes, "Blackout" did as good as "In the zone" in Ireland, in fact both albums charted for 46 weeks which is great from Blackout's side considering "In the zone" is a prime / golden era Britney album which was supported with a Tour.

    "Circus" did good in Ireland too but I think it was one of the very few markets where "Blackout" was a bigger era (the only other market I can remember for it is Russia), unlike most of the the world Ireland never perceived "Circus" as a comeback album because Britney's popularity and chart relevance never dropped there, so after following a #1 hit album with a #1 hit smash she had nothing to "comeback" from in Ireland, "Circus" was just another standard hit album for Britney there whereas it was seen as a bouncing back album in most other markets.

    And yes, overall Ireland has been an extremely supportive market towards Britney, her run has been impressive and like you said, "Glory" debuted at #1 there and she has a sold out show there this year which is great.

    The "Blackout" era seems to have been quite popular in Ireland



    Ireland

    Blackout (Chart-Run):
    01, 03, 11, 21, 26, 31, 33, 25, 18, 11, 06, 03, 03, 06, 07, 14, 13, 19, 27, 26, 22, 18, 13, 13, 13, 13, 14, 21, 14, 29, 35, 45, 73, 90, 66, 68, 67, 52, 46, 62, 42, 63, 87, 87, 100, 93 (46 weeks)
    Gimme More (Chart-run):
    09, 02, 04, 05, 05, 07, 10, 12, 16, 16, 16, 17, 20, 23, 27, 34, 34, 45 (18 weeks)
    Piece of me (Chart-run):
    24, 09, 04, 01, 01, 02, 03, 04, 03, 05, 08, 10, 17, 21, 26, 33, 39, 44 (18 weeks)
    Break the ice (Chart-run):
    37, 16, 10, 11, 07, 11, 11, 12, 16, 18, 23, 37 (12 weeks)

    The album had a chart-run of 46 weeks and charted within the Top 40 for 31 weeks which is solid for an album that only had 3 singles and wasn't backed up with a Tour.

    Every single from the album was effective in Ireland causing a boost to the album as the chart-run reflects. "Piece of me" was quite a smash too.

    It was a popular era over there with a #1 album and #1 hit single.

    Since the tour is now "extended" through September, I do feel like they will add more shows. Especially after Paris sold out so quickly. I hope they don't forget about Italy or Spain, I feel like she'd sell out in minutes since she hasn't been to those countries in 14 and 18 years, respectively.

    And yes, she should totally do Latin America again. Just don't do stadiums + focus on the main markets (Mexico, Chile, Brazil, Argentina).

    Her team should add Latin America and Oceania.

    Palacio de los Desportes and Arena Moonterrey, Mexico
    Jeunesse Arena and Allianz Parque, Brazil
    Movistar Arena, Chile
    Explanada do Estadio Monumental, Peru
    Estadio GEBA, Argentina
    Jockey Club, Paraguay
    El Capin, Colombia
    Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Dominican Republic
    Agrelot Coliseo, Puerto Rico
    Plaza Figali, Panama
    Parque Viva, Costa Rica

    Oceania:
    Qudos Band Arena, Sydney
    Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne
    Perth Arena, Perth
    Hope Estate, Hunter Valley
    Mt Duneed Estate, Geelong
    Spark Arena, Auckland

    + Milan/Rome, Zurich, Barcelona, Prague, Amsterdam, Copenhaguen, Warsaw, Vienna and Minsk in Europe (1 date in Turkey would be nice). Berlin deserves extra date (or Munich). Her demand in Ireland was insane. I think it would be enough to sell out 3Arena in three or four shows (that would be like 1 date at Aviva Stadium)

    Next tour she can book Wembley, Stade de France or Parc des Princes, Aviva, Valle Hovin, Olympiastadion...

    That was his opinion about Vegas in general, not once did he mention Britney and for the most part artists do go to Vegas when their commercial careers are bottoming out. Britney hasn’t had a hit album or single since before Vegas so it’s not totally incorrect.

    U$ 1.35-1.45 million in gross I think.
    That'd be amazing. Her show in 2011 only grossed $978k and I don't know how much her show in 2009 did, but probably around the same.

    If the second Paris show sells out, I think we can expect $3 million gross and 30k attendance

    Her haters who are always proven wrong ...

    - She shaves her head .... Oh she's over she won't come back after this they said ... She inmediately pulled a comeback with "Circus" and a massive #1 smash hit

    - She releases "Britney Jean" ... Oh the album is cr*p she lost it, she won't ever release good music again they said .... She released "Glory", one of the best albums of her career with great support from critics.

    - She performs in Vegas ... Oh she can't Tour, its impossible, she's rotting in Vegas they said ...... She's selling out, breaking records worldwide with concerts all over Asia and Europe since 2017 with massive demand.

    She always bounces back
