"Hold it against me" hit charts strong and was a defining #1 hit according to Billboard:

The 75 Moments That Defined the Decade in Music (So Far)

January 29, 2011: Britney Spears' "Hold It Against Me" debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100
Britney Spears' Femme Fatale lead single, helmed by the early-'10s dream team of Max Martin, Dr. Luke, and Bonnie McKee, immediately returned the pop legend to the top of the charts with her first release of the new decade. But the success of "Hold It Against Me" would have implications well beyond the artists involved: The song was one of the first major hits to employ a dubstep breakdown, establishing the largely underground EDM phenomenon within the pop mainstream. Soon, smashes by Justin Bieber, Flo Rida and JAY-Z and Kanye West would drop down the rabbit hole after Britney. -- A.U.

The single has sold over 3,7million units in pure sales according to MJD from Chartmasters.

Too bad she seems to hate HIAM. It would look so amazing live if she performed it in the shape that she's currently in.

Happy 7th anniversary to this impactful #1 hit 8-) Not one of my faves but I'll always appreciate its impact in the music scene! :D And the fact it sold almost 4 million worldwide without any promo (until album release week when the song was already dead) is very impressive.

The 20 Best selling female albums of all time (Pure sales - My estimations):

1. The Bodyguard OST - Whitney Houston - 38,000,000
2. Come on over - Shania Twain - 34,000,000
3. Jagged little pill - Alanis Morissette - 33,000,000
4. 21 - Adele - 31,000,000
5. Lets talk about love - Celine Dion - 31,000,000
6. Falling into you - Celine Dion - 30,000,000
7. The inmaculate collection - Madonna - 28,000,000
8. Music box - Mariah Carey - 26,000,000
9. Baby one more time - Britney Spears - 24,000,000
10. Whitney Houston - Whitney Houston - 24,000,000
11. True Blue - Madonna - 22,000,000
12. Come away with me - Norah Jones - 22,000,000
13. 25 - Adele - 21,000,000
14. Like a virgin - Madonna - 21,000,000
15. All the way .. A decade of song - Celine Dion - 21,000,000
16. Tracy Chapman - Tracy Chapman - 20,000,000
17. Oops I did it again - Britney Spears - 20,000,000
18. Daydream - Mariah Carey - 19,000,000
19. Tapestry - Carole King - 19,000,000
20. Whitney - Whitney Houston - 19,000,000

Am I forgetting / excluding someone?

I think that it will be extremely hard that a new female album get close to these numbers in the future. At least I don't think its happening anytime soon. Artists like Adele are like 1 in a decade phenomenom.

This is a good list :wink: Some might argue different numbers for some of these releases, but you're not missing anyone and I believe all of these albums belong in this list.

"Toxic" was released 14 years ago today!

Image
"Toxic" is a song recorded by American singer Britney Spears for her fourth studio album In the Zone (2003). It was written and produced by Christian Karlsson and Pontus Winnberg (known collectively as Bloodshy & Avant), with additional writing from Cathy Dennis and Henrik Jonback. The song released on January 13, 2004, by Jive Records, as the second single from In the Zone. The song was originally offered to Kylie Minogue for her ninth studio album Body Language (2003), but she rejected it. After trying to choose between "(I Got That) Boom Boom" and "Outrageous" to be the second single from In the Zone, Spears selected "Toxic" instead. A dance song with elements of bhangra music, "Toxic" features varied instrumentation, such as drums, synthesizers and surf guitar. It is accompanied by high-pitched Bollywood strings, sampled from Lata Mangeshkar and S. P. Balasubrahmanyam's "Tere Mere Beech Mein" (1981), and breathy vocals. Its lyrics draw an extended metaphor of a lover as a dangerous yet addictive drug.

Happy anniversary to "Toxic"! IMO her magnum opus!

This is Britney's top catalog seller and one of the most famous Pop songs of the 2000s.

Despite being released prior to the Digital era it has sold over 5,5million units in pure sales (according to MJD from Chartmasters) and counting!. This will definately surpass 6m eventually, this song is always relevant.

THE BEATLES

Yesterday, a list of the Biggest Digital Single Sellers has been published. We saw that Rihanna easily dominates this ranking but there is no suspense, she does not appear among Best Physical Single Sellers. It is becausethe physical single market was dead a long time before she has released her first record. So, who leads this category? Are there well ranked artists in the two formats? You will find the answer in the list below!

Please keep in mind some artists with strong results in this format haven’t been studied so far, e.g. Elton John, Elvis Presley or Diana Ross. All figures reflect the value as collected at the time of the artist’s respective articles.

A lot of lists like this one are available in the Data Collector, so feel free to read them to gauge how your favorite artist ranked in it.

Reminder of the formula:

Equivalent Albums Sales (EAS) = 0.3 * Physical Single Sales
Artists Ranking – Physical Singles SAles

1. Beatles – 116,080,000 units (34,823,000 EAS)
2. Michael Jackson – 79,350,000 units (23,805,000 EAS)
3. Madonna – 75,210,000 units (22,563,000 EAS)
4. Bee Gees – 72,790,000 units (21,837,000 EAS)
5. Rolling Stones – 72,770,000 units (21,832,000 EAS)
6. ABBA – 54,400,000 units (16,320,000 EAS)
7. George Michael & Wham! – 49,880,000 units (14,964,000 EAS)

7th Best selling physical singles artist.

Keep in mind that other strong physical sellers have not been studied like Diana Ross. But it is safe to say Britney was the biggest physical singles seller of her generation (even bigger than Eminem). Pretty impressive considering many of her singles didn't even have proper releases in the US (the biggest market) so most of her total comes from international sales.
