Britney Spears Over? I Think Not

Contributed by Rob4Britney1788:

I don’t really respond much to posts on this website because the haters are worst here than anywhere, but sometimes I just have to get my thoughts out there. The fact that people can sit here and say that is “flopping” or “over” is absurd and beyond me. “Me Against The Music” was #1 on the World Charts for 5 weeks combining the Sales Charts (3 weeks) and Sales/Airplay Chart (2 weeks so far.) Her album “In The Zone” was number one for two weeks and let me say that not many artists hit #1 on the World Album Charts since most don’t release CD’s in every part of the world like Britney, Dido, and few others. That right there is proof that Britney isn’t close to over… she has a record label in every country from America to Brazil to Germany to Israel to Korea to Australia. I don’t know many other artists that do. Not even Christina Aguilera herself does. I’ve ran into Britney fans on the net from Kuwait, Israel, and Qatar (all in the Middle East) who didn’t know who Christina was.

I’ll stop rambling and show you facts Britney isn’t close to over. In fact, she’s just begun.

In four short weeks “In The Zone” has already sold close to 2.5 million worldwide. 1.15 million in the USA alone and 1.4 million everywhere else. Christina and Justin weren’t even passed 1mil worldwide in their fourth weeks. It wasn’t until their second singles that their albums took off. Unlike Christina and Justin, Britney’s first single “Me Against The Music” was a huge hit worldwide. It hit number one in almost 20 countries and is STILL hitting #1 in countries as we speak (Me Against The Music hit #1 in Chile this week and is expected to in Colombia and Brazil in the next 1-3 weeks.) Me Against The Music peaked at #35 in the USA which I would HARDLY consider a flop. That is extremely well for an artist getting played on one format alone. Most pop artists only peak around #50. She is in her ninth week on the American charts right now and is expected to climb at a rapid pace (no pun intended) this week with the release of the Maxi-CD Single. It’s rumored she sold a whopping 4k with the Single which is amazing considering the average #1 single on the American Single Charts only sells 4-6k a week.

This week “In The Zone” remains number one in Korea and Greece and stabilizes from last weeks big fall around the world. “In The Zone” fell no more than 5 spots in 99% of the countries this week basically saying sales are evening out and she should continue to sell a decent amount worldwide until the release of “Toxic” which is expected to do extremely well. Toxic is a very radio-friendly song in Europe and will show many Europeans that there is more good songs than “Me Against The Music” on her CD. In America I don’t have my hopes up for “Toxic” to do that great, but her, anything can happen. I also want to remind you of Britney’s World Tour coming up in 2004. So far it has been confirmed she’ll be visiting North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Latin American shows are rumored as well. Britney hasn’t done a world tour since 2000 when she was at her peak. Notice how after she stopped touring sales have been at a decline? I have a good feeling this tour will shut a lot of people up sales-wise.

    “I’ve ran into Britney fans on the net from Kuwait, Israel, and Qatar (all in the Middle East) who didn’t know who Christina was.” Why do you have to bring Christina into it? I don’t think Britney is a flop – she’s just a marketing machine who makes crappy disposable music.

    hypocrite…..u are a hater. you didn’t have to mention xtina’s name…..but I guess that’s kind of obvious seeing how all of Britney fans feel threatened by her. pretty soon….everybody will be focused more on xtina……and forget about Britney’s sex life…..which is the source of her success.

    Will these essays ever stop. They won’t change anyone’s mind about the artist. I can understand wanting to get your point across, but that’s what the comment section is for. At least this one has some fact and is not just an opinion. Her sells really aren’t as bad as some people would like to think they are. But there will be another essay disputing this one in a few minutes, just wait and see.

    Oh please..if the post would’ve been about Christina, Britney would’ve been mentioned as well.. People get used to it, there is always a battle between the two.. “You didn’t have to mention Christina”…what a stupid comment!!!.. That’s what this site has been about for a while now, haven’t you guys notice?

    Compared to her previous cd’s. Britney’s new one has flopped. her career is on a steady decline, she will be the next Debbie Gibson. Since you brought Christina into your stupid essay, I would like to say that Christina has many fans all over the world. She has had great success in Europe and Australia. Furthermore, I know many people in Central and South America that love Christina and don’t have a clue who Britney is. Those that do remember her (Britney) for flipping off cameras in Mexico, many people were insulted.

    People fail to realize that ALL music sells are down, not just Britney’s. In reality CD sells are down like 50 to 60%, all across the board. It’s nice to know that not everyone here is 12 years old.

  8. Gimmeabreak says:

    Britney is here to stay…DEAL WITH IT…’, ‘lifeorsomethinglikeit…u are right…sells are down across the board…which is why slutina’s sells for stripped were nothing compared to her first cd…people don’t realize that Brit is worldwide…she’s #1 in other countries…just because you don’t like her…doesn’t mean others don’t…she’s not going anywhere…

    I agree with this 100% The haters who call her a flop are just in denial. They just can’t face the facts and make a fool outta them selves, which is quite funny. ‘In The Zone’ has just begun. Once her tour get’s on the road and releases her second single, surely her sales will go up. ‘Me Against The Music’ is still #5(stayed #1 for 2 weeks, dropped on the third week because of Australian Idol winner) here in Australia after like 4-5 weeks which is pretty good. She hasn’t had a number single in Australia since ‘Oops I Did It Again’, I think making it her third #1. and HELL YEAH, she’s coming to Australia!!!!! I am so happy to hear that.

    Christina Aguilera is a true artist’, ‘why does everyone compare Christina Aguilera to Britney Spears I mean they are sooooooooooooooooooo different. And both have things to offer different things. I love Christina I think she is great but I like others also and I cannot see why a brit fan cannot like Chris or Chris fan cannot like brit.(i don’t like her but that is just my opinion) people on this website need to know everyone is different so stop being soo arrogant (misspelled) and except that. Christina rox
