              I always thought it never got a proper single rollout in the UK or any promotion there?

                Probably must not have gotten a proper release there, and must've been part of an instant gratification offer for the album.

                  • I'm trying to figure out how much Greatest Hits: My Prerogative sold in its first week globally

                    US — 255,000
                    Japan — 173,145
                    UK — 115,341
                    Canada — 20,400
                    Ireland — 5,430

                    In Taiwan, Britney achieved a 22.57% market share of album sales, the best start for an album since 2002 and the biggest start for compilation album in the country (as of 2004).

                    Source

                    Does anyone know the album's peak in France? i found this chart run as of December 2004, but that gotta be the compilation chart, right? Were compilation albums not allowed on the main chart?

                    France : #1 ;#3 ;#5 ;#7 ;#12 (179,395)

                        It sold around 850k first week with shipments probably around 1.5 million.

                        Americas - 330k~
                        Europe - 250k~
                        Asia: 250k~
                        Aus/NZ - 15k~
                        Other - 10k~

                          Yeah, this seems pretty reasonable. It shipped 4.4 million worldwide in less than 2 months, per the IFPI.

                          Quite impressive considering it "only" debuted with 255K in the US.

                              No it was released. It just flopped. The 2008 Xfactor performance killed her singles career in the UK for some reason. They took the lipsynching to an extreme.

                                Yeah UK wasn't there for Britney lip syncing while eating gum and sometimes not even doing that

                                • Still “I Wanna Go” peaking at #111 was very weird considering after that “Work Bitch” peaked at #7 and the terrible “Pretty Girls” made the Top 20 at #16.

                                  Even piece cr*p “Ooh La La” made the chart and peaked at #72.

                                  I think they were not releasing her singles properly in the UK during FF era. I do remember they messed up TTWE big time with a mid-week release when back in the day release date was a very important thing in UK.

                                  Labels used to hold single releases in UK for weeks. Labels would release singles everywhere and UK would be the last place where they would release the song like a month and a half later. In 2011 this practice was still key and artists of the time (Gaga, Rihanna, Kesha, Kitty, J.Lo, etc) were treating their singles that way in the UK. For some strange reason Jive ignored this “key” hold with FF singles and neither “Hold It Against Me” or “Till The World Ends” received this treatment.

                                  They resume the strategy with “Work Bitch” and it was an automatic Top 10 by the time it got released.

                                    In the US definitely. It spent 22 weeks in the top 10 on Mainstream Top 40 (Pop Radio) and 5 weeks at #1. It only peaked at #8 on the overall Airplay chart because it didn’t receive as much support by other radio formats. In Europe as well since it was the biggest radio hit of 1999 there. Oops is probably her 2nd biggest radio hit in Europe as it finished #6 on the YEC.

                                      On that note I remember Hold It Against Me was released on midday Monday after fans demanded it be brought forward… It peaked at #3 on iTunes for the majority of the week but missed out on crucial Sunday sales and airplay build up…. Femme Fatale era was destined to flop.. Till the World Ends was released on a Friday, missing 5 full days of sales.. A mess.
                                      we will rise to meet the challenge every time

                                      • The Femme Fatale era was handled horribly in the UK. Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the album get released during Mother's Day, which is why it ended up missing the Top 5?

                                          I think by that time her team only cared about the USA market. Everything was scheduled and made to work for the USA market needs.

                                          For that reason they didn’t give a d*mn about the messed up singles releases in the UK or even booking one of the bussiest weeks of the year in UK with bunch of competition to release the album (“Femme Fatale” debuted at #8 with higher sales than some albums that went #1 on the chart on prior months).

                                          But they only cared about the USA and they got her a #1 album and single there. That’s all that mattered to them.

                                            No #1 album in UK , did they even care for her their, ITZ #13 In it’s 34th week…..

                                                    ​​​​​​​Rihanna - Pon de Replay - 31 million

                                                    I'm sure it's missing a few songs but it was what I remember. Maybe I searched the wrong way but I couldn't find numbers for Love Story and You Belong With Me that weren't from the "Taylor's Version" released last year.
