    Maybe I would've been nicer if you didn't have a story of causing trouble in other threads....and your first reply wasn't exactly nice either. But anyway. The YouTube numbers come from https://charts.youtube.com/. Type the artist name, change the date to past 12 months and type the country, in this case, the US.

    ^^ Firstly I never questioned the audio converted streams. When I quoted you the figure you were working with was 300 million.
    So now there is nothing wrong with my reading comprehension, I simply asked you to show receipts for your claims that she had totalled circa 500k, which you have now done. Of course I'm not going to doubt official receipts, which is why I asked you to provide them, which surely you could have done in the first place without being rude. Thanks.

    Are those youtube views all from official sources, as they are the only ones that count for sales purposes ?

    InFamous Let me make it clear for you, since apparently you lack reading comprehension.

    378.9 million AUDIO streams in the past 12 months is an official figure, not speculation. And they equal to 252k album sales. Now that we got that very clear, let's take a look into her album sales.

    January 2019
    Spears has sold 33.6 million albums in the U.S.

    May 2020
    Spears has sold 33.8 million albums in the U.S.

    That's an increase of 200k in 16 months. Around 150k in a year. But these numbers are rounded so yeah could be anywhere between 100-150k. Remember, her vinyl re-issues sell like hot cakes and that's why she had such a big increase.

    According to YouTube, she's gained 163 million views in the US over the past 12 months. That's 108k albums (and yes, they do count for certification purposes whether you like it or not).



    Pure Album Sales - 100-150k
    Audio Equivalent Sales - 252k
    Video Equivalent Sales - 108k
    Track Equivalent Sales - ?
    Total: 460-510k

    All of these numbers are based off official sources like Billboard and Rolling Stone (which compiles data from Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, etc), so tell me again, how are we just "speculating"?

    I made my point in my first reply, that your number was just pulled out of nowhere. Looks like you are the one who wants to argue ?
    Unless you have receipts for what you claim you are just speculating.

    Incorrect, not for albums. For singles yes. That person was talking about albums. It was announced in Dec 13, 2019 and started to count from Jan 3rd.

    https://www.vulture.com/2019/12/bill...e-streams.html

    For RIAA yes you're right but only from official sources. But they dont recognize anything until you hit a certification level and they ignore any sales that fall between those levels basically.

    Those 378,9 million streams are from the Rolling Stone artists chart and I’m pretty sure they don’t count YouTube views, but RIAA does

    Also Circus has most likely surpassed 3M SPS units in the US imo.
    1,7M pure sales
    9,345,000 track sales (based on the numbers in the OP)
    414M US streams from Womanizer and Circus alone (confirmed by Billboard)

    That adds up to 2,910,000 SPS. I’m pretty sure the rest of the album can add up to 90k units from streaming

    378.9 million USA streams means she sold 2.5 million single units and 252,000 album equivalent units! Not too shabby for a year

    Certifications are useless in the US. You could be the highest selling artist of all time and have zero certifications. They either need to be automatic....or how about just do away with them all together?

    I just listened to the Mood Ring pride remix and I love it! Well done. I wonder why it got that big boost July 3 as I thought most pride parties were cancelled this year.

    She would enter the list easily.

    I believe she would pass the 100M mark

    Her singles pure sales are over 40M and she has over 3.7B US streams

    So something like 60M in singles units + 46M album units

    Not bad 500k in album sales per year is amazing, also have to remember she has no new music for 4 years now

    I personally think her album sales if you combine everything pure streams and club sales your looking at 43 million total units in the USA

    It was Christmas time so all albums were selling more. She has just been incredibly unlucky in the UK.
