I thought it was around 0.7/8:

How much has lotus sold?
"Bionic" has not sold 1,5M , it never reached the 1M mark ... however the digital sales of the tracks / songs of the album surpassed the 1M mark in the US :wink:

"Lotus" is probably at 500K WW or even less, it hasn't reached the 300K in the US, and it performed terribly outside the US.

This is interesting.

I don't know if its positive or negative the fact that she improved in her singles performances but declined in album sales between "Bionic" and "Lotus" in US.

Bionic's 2 singles flopped and bombed terribly in the US specially "You lost me", while both Lotus' singles achieved -Gold- status in the US (one of them with no performances and a peak outside top 30, and the other one without a music video), a Gold single is nothing to be impressed these days though, but at least an imporvement in the singles department.

In terms of albums sales it was the opposite, "Lotus" sales were disappointing considering the album was released by the end of the year and had Black friday and Christmas sales unlike "Bionic".

Despite the singles improvement in the US , the situation is not the same worldwide, I still think "Not myselft tonight" remains as her best chart performer (solo) single worldwide since 2010. :wink:

US Digital Sales:

“Feel This Moment” by Pitbull featuring Christina Aguilera tops the 2 million mark in digital sales this week. It’s Pitbull’s fifth 2-million-seller as a lead artist. The song peaked at #8.

Another 2X Platinum classic for Legend X.

Come on guys, its pit bulls single and she is only featured guest , that doesn't count

in the year 1987 aretha franklin had also a number 1 hit in the us with george michael, as she was only collabo-singer after sales and charts decline of more than a decade (as an example) :lol:

there is no arguments, both BIONIC and LOTUS were huge flops , really no discussion
plus as you mentioned nowadays GOLD and PLATINUM singles are not overwhelming

back in 1999 it was an effort that GENIE IN A BOTTLE sold 500,000 copies in the us in the year 1999, but at that time no single sold more than 1,000,000 in the us

The worst part is that actually Xtina's only multi-platinum sellers in the US are her 2 featurings: "Moves like jagger" and "Feel this moment". :-?

I'm not sure about "Ain't no other man" tho. as for the rest, Xtina's been failing to get platinum singles since "Candyman".

^ "Genie In A Bottle" is in the 2 million mark when you add up physical & digital sales.

"Keeps Gettin' Better" also sold over 1 million digitally.

there is an anomaly in xtinas carreer

keeps getting better as a single from a best of reached both us top 10 and PLATINUM

only 1 year and 3 months later her lead single from new studio album reached only # 23 on the hot 100

cannot understand this,

IM NOT MYSELF TONIGHT had everything what a good song needs

GOOD CATCHY refrain
awesome and expensive video -(directed by the great Hype williams )
promotion without end
perfect climate in music landscape to succeed with this dance song (lady gaga led era)

im not a fan , but she is a legend and an icon

especially with STRIPPED she had a critically and commercial success

STRIPPED by 2002 was very innovative and unexpected after her debut,

I don't think she is.

Though like Britney, she has iconic status.

that's because Billboard rules changed in 2010 (compared to 2008)

billboard changed rules and therefore she fllopped ???

Her debut was just a debut of a young teenage girl with 3-4 good songs and the rest fillers

Stripped was an awesome album, it was highly risky and touched different audiences,

Back to basic was also risky, but boring and more an art album with 40+50s influence

She has made great legacy and big impact on pop culture. Her voice inspired millions and millions of singers around the world. Hurt is one of the most covered songs in music competitions. I don't care if she flops or not, she is a legend in my heart. ;)

Don't you think it's a bit overestimated? The last updated figure I saw, after Lotus was released (I think), stood at 320-330k or a bit less, I think, and I doubt it has sold that much in one year... :-?
