  • I think that MJDangerous really underestimated some of her records, not acknowledging her success in Asia.

    1999 Baby One More Time – 23,500,000
    2000 Oops!… I Did It Again – 18,600,000
    2001 Britney – 10,000,000
    2003 In The Zone – 7,400,000
    2004 Greatest Hits - My Prerogative – 6,800,000
    2007 Blackout – 2,500,000
    2008 Circus – 3,900,000
    2009 The Singles Collection – 1,100,000
    2011 Femme Fatale – 1,700,000
    2013 Britney Jean – 600,000

    = 76,100,000

    Her Greatest Hits not even at 7 million? I doubt that. :-?

    Oops is definitely beyond that number, too.

    Britney at 10 million flat seems deflated imo.


    The big question is if all those numbers for Asia that have been posted here 2015/2016 are truthful or made up. Can somebody clarify that ?

    According to one comprehensive post with all of her certifications, she sold huge numbers in Asia: I have saved this overview:

    • So is safe to say Britney Spears has sold 180 million records world wide!

      Really hope glory and few other albums can take it over 200 million

      Especially if she does like 9 more! If she can sell 1 million worldwide for each she will have sold 90 million albums worldwide

      • TBH, i believe MJD's estimations quite good. Oops is the only one i have a probem with, but that album,is nowhere near the 22m figure reported by mediatraffic. It's barely at 20m. Also, MJD's estimate for GH:MP isn't far from the 7m mark. It shipped over around 2m in North America, Asia and Europe each. 1m for the rest should be right.

        Also, Luminator, do you have a source for those sales/certifications? Where did you find them? Is there a website or a newspaper article from Billboard that says so? Some of those figures look a bit inflated. For example, I believe BOMT should be around 500K-600K in Japan. Her biggest selling album there should be GH:MP, with around 900K shipped. Her other albums from 2000-2003 should be around 500K. South Korean and Taiwan looks ok, but the others I'm doubtful, especially Indonesia and Philippines. Still, Asian sales are very hard to estimate. For me, all of Britney's albums from 1999-2004 had shipped in the range of 1,5-2m in Asia. Perhaps a little more. Who knows?

        • If you search this thread, there was a post with all of her certifications. I myself don't know if that one was to be trusted, but it stated all those certifications for Britney in Asian countries.

          I kinda doubted those figures since I couldn't find any source for them anywhere on the internet.

          Here is the post:

          • What I find is interesting is Britney Jean has sold 1.1 million copies when including sps! That's a good total actually

            Comment


            • I think most of those Asian certifications are made up, unfortunately. However we will never truly know her sales in most Asian countries. Which is a shame as Asia had some pretty healthy music markets during Britney's peak (90s, early 00s)

              Britney.com has the following certifications for her, although you should take them with a grain of salt because that site has some mistakes for other countries.

              Korea

              BOMT - 150,000 (5xP)
              OIDIA - 300,000 (10xP)
              Britney - 300,000 (10xP)
              ITZ - 120,000 (4xP)
              GH:MP - 90,000 (3xP)

              since 01/2004 :: G 15,000 P 30,000
              These actually add up to the numbers we have (BOMT has sold 150k, OIDIA 300k, Britney 350k, ITZ 150k and GH:MP 100k, so we can assume these are accurate)

              Philippines

              BOMT - 300,000 (10xP)

              • People always deflate britney sales while inflate others, it sucks. And asian fans are always support britney though the music market here is dead(Also the music industry all over the world is dying ). However, the music market of asia used to be massive from 1998 to 2002.

                Comment


                • And if there is no official sales figures released, just use IFPI figures. After all, IFPI is official.

                  Comment


                  • But even if we just take the lower pure certifications for her albums in Asia, you come to an overall figure that is significantly higher than what MJDangerous estimated.

                    • That‘s the point. OIDIA absolutely OUTSOLD BOMT in Asia.

                      Comment


                      • I also believe OIDIA and Britney (especially OIDIA) are underestimated. He had OIDIA at 19.6 million and Britney at 10.8 million several years ago.

                          I wouldn't say the overall figure would be "significantly" higher though. As lambs, you and i both know Asian sales are a pain in the neck. Still, we gotta be careful about these Asian certifications, as Instinct said, those might be fake. Even huge acts in Asia like Mariah, Celine and MJ (aside from Thriller) didn't get those type of sales in countries like Indonesia and Philippines.

                          Let's look at MJD's estimation for BOMT. He has it at 23,5m worldwide, with 15,6m coming from North America, 865K from the 3 main markets of South America, 4,74m in Europe, and 370K from Oceania. Deduct the 23,5m to those figures and you get 1,925m. That 1,925m albums comes from the remaing countries, which includes the remaining part of South America, Africa and the entire Asian continent. The remaining part of South America does not have strong markets like Brazil and Mexico, so BOMT should have sold around 100K-200K in that region (perhaps even less). As for Africa, I don't know about Britney's sales there, but I'm guessing it should be around 200K+, considering she was big everywhere. That leaves around 1,5m for Asia, with 500K coming from Japan alone. Personally, I find that a bit deflated. I believe that BOMT, OIDIA and GH:MP each sold 2m units in Asia (perhaps even more). With that being said, BOMT should be around 24m, 500K more than MJD's estimate. I wouldn't call that significantly higher.

                          The only problem i have with MJD's estimate was OIDIA, which i believe is quite deflated. Not only do i think he deflated Briteny's Asian sales, but i believe he deflated Britney's US sales as well. MJD said that OIDIA must have been sold exclusively at BMG clubs. Even if that's true, let's not forget that even during 2000, SoundScan only tracked around 70%-80% of the music market, so it's actual over-counter sales should be slightly higher than 9,2m. Moreover, MJD has OIDIA at 10,5m, but we come to that figure with just BMG club sales and SoundScan sales alone. Personally, i think OIDIA should be AT LEAST 11m shipped in the US. And like i said, OIDIA must be around 2m units in Asia, yet MJD only has around 1,5m+ in Asia. Therefore, I believe MJD's OIDIA estimate is deflated by 1m copies! With 500K deflated in both Asia and the US!

                          Overall, aside from MJD's OIDIA figure, and a little deflation on her Asian sales, MJD's estimate is quite alright. Britney should be around 80m albums sold worldwide, which is close to what MJD has estimated (76m+).

                            Although, I'm very confused about the Brazilian sales for her first two albums. Billboard Magazine reported that BOMT and OIDIA have sold 1 million and 850k respectively, while quoting Jive Records as their source. MJDangerous claims they've sold 300k and 250k, and this site claims they've sold 508k and 317k. I don't know what to believe.

                            Here'sthe link to the Billboard article



                            I believe his estimations for other albums are fine, but OIDIA seems very underestimated to me.

                            Comment


                            • I noticed some other minor stuff that don't add up in my opinion. MJD is working with shipments, but he estimates 850k for Femme Fatale in the U.S when it's officially certified for 1 million by the RIAA. He estimates 100k for Greatest Hits: My Prerogative in Italy, but according to Zago it had sold nearly 150k several years ago, this may not seem like a big deal, but that would bring its total European sales to 2 million. Femme Fatale is also certified Gold in Sweden (20,000), but he estimates 5,000 for it. This one is a minimal difference, but my OCD is kicking in so I had to point it out.

                              GH:MP should be at over 2 million in Europe (he estimates 1.96 million)

                              UK - 1,025,000 (shipped)
                              France - 255,000
                              Germany - 150,000
                              Italy - 150,000+
                              Ireland - 120,000
                              Belgium - 50,000
                              Russia - 50,000+
                              Austria - 40,000
                              Denmark - 40,000
                              Portugal - 40,000
                              Finland - 35,000
                              Norway - 30,000
                              Spain - 25,000
                              Netherlands - 25,000
                              Sweden - 25,000
                              Switzerland - 25,000
                              Greece - 10,000+

                              = 2.1 million from known info, so it should be around 2.15+ million in Europe. Overall I think he did a great job with Britney's stats, don't get me wrong, but I feel like certain stuff are underestimated. His article was pretty interesting.

                              OT: Does anyone know if GH:MP re-charted in the UK this week? It made the mid-week but I haven't seen it on the full chart.

                                                583,865.75 per night is really good.
                                                the residency should get at least 490k per night to cover all cost (most of it paid to Britney).

                                                BTW, boxscore this week is weird that 2 million at #43, so many tours reveal the bigger revenue.

                                                          Thank you. Those were great first week sales for a non-top 10 album!

                                                            • Can somebody tell me how many albums Britney has shipped in Japan? According to MJD:

                                                              BOMT-500,000
                                                              OIDIA-450,000
                                                              B-450,000
                                                              ITZ-450,000
                                                              GH:MP-1,000,000
                                                              BO-100,000
                                                              C-140,000
                                                              TSC-100,000
                                                              FF-70,000
                                                              BJ-25,000
                                                              Total: 3,285,000

                                                              As much as I love MJD, i think some of these figures are a bit underestimated. I remember seeing BOMT over 600K. Also, didn't ITZ outdid both OIADA and B there? Aside from underestimations, i also think he inflated GH:MP. Wasn't it reported 800K+ in 2005? If so, i highly doubt if it shipped an additional 200K there, considering album sales in Japan are often frontloaded and have dismissal catalog sales. I'd say it shipped 900K max.

                                                              Can anyone elaborate on this? Does anyone have Britney's Oricon figures and import figures so we can get a close estimations on her album sales there? IMO, Britney must in the 3-3,5m albums range. The only females (western) i can think of who outsold her there are: Mariah, Celine, Madonna, Enya, Avril and perhaps Janet. That should make her #6-#10 of the top selling western female artist (albums) in Japan!
