500k is enough. I think it’s not on chart because time period they cut and some people play it offline? The number that Instinc show was just comparing from previous day in total, not from official tracking period.

In Germany it really needs more downloads for a re-entry inside the Top 100. It would be great to see it this week, but a re-entry is possible lately in the next week.
50 million is a given. I'm predicting 55-60 million this season. :wink:

^huge sales for the song only 1 time promoted.
5.5 million when IFPI 2010 reported.
4 female artists: Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Beyonce and Britney were on the list.

I remembered most peolple were surprised because they thought it’s no way on the top 10 (comparing to others in the list, Circus was kind of short life). :lol:

"Circus" (song) wasn't that short-lived tho, that song spent more weeks inside the Hot 100's top 20 than several of her other singles and its overall her 6th most successful single released in the US according to Billboard. In the UK the song had an unlucky peak of #13 but that song charted for nearly 6 months inside the UK top 100 chart, thats more than what "Gimme More" (which was a Top 3 hit) charted, thats why "Circus" went Silver in UK and some of her actual Top 10 singles didn't.

Thats cool, I didn't know "Lucky" was performed on The Voice.

First Madonna covered "Toxic" 3 days ago, now "Lucky" gets covered on The Voice last night, not bad!. . . Her catalog lives!

I wouldn’t say it was short lived at all. It was the 17th best-selling song of the year in the US, as well as the 13th most played song on pop radio. It underperformed in Europe for some reason but it was a really big hit in the US, Canada, Australia and NZ. Even in the UK it had good sales and longevity considering its peak. It was huge in South Korea as well.

"Born to Make You Happy" was released 18 years ago today!

Image

"Born to Make You Happy" is a song recorded by American singer Britney Spears for her debut studio album, ...Baby One More Time (1999). It was released on December 6, 1999, by Jive Records, as the fourth single from the album in European countries. Before recording the song, Spears had to ask the writers of the song, Andreas Carlsson and Kristian Lundin, to re-write it, since it was a sexual song. The singer first recorded her vocals in March 1998, and re-recorded them later in the same year. The dance-pop and teen pop song alludes to a relationship that a woman desires to correct, not quite understanding what went wrong, as she comes to realize that she was "born to make [her lover] happy".
#1: Denmark, Ireland, UK
Top 5: Belgium, Europe, Finland, Germany, Greece, Netherlands, Norway, Romania, Sweden, Switzerland
Top 10: Austria, France, Italy
Top 20: Spain

"Born to Make You Happy" is one of Britney's biggest European hits, hitting #1 in the UK, and reaching the Top 10 in every country it charted except for one. Fun fact: "Born to Make You Happy" actually sold as much as "Oops!... I Did It Again" in Germany. It peaked at #3 for two consecutive weeks and had crazy longevity during the Christmas season. 8-)

Happy 18th anniversary! :D

^ Amazing update, Instinct.

Britney is pretty much the biggest female star from her generation in France and by a big lead. I'm so glad she could slay that market, it seems to be a quite hard one for other divas.

Thank you 8-)

And yeah, France is one of the most difficult markets to crack, especially for female pop stars. And she had a very solid and consistent career for 15 years. 8-)
