Christina Aguilera No Longer Britney Spears’ Shadow

Contributed anonymously:

A lot of people make the comment that is in the shadow of her supposedly bigger and better rival . But those days are over, Christina’s album sales are miles ahead of Britney. I believe that Britney’s albums sales are somewhere around the 28 million mark maybe 30 with the 2 million copies of ‘In The Zone’ sold. I think she sold 13 million of her debut album, 10 million with ‘Oops…’, 5 million with ‘Britney’, and currently 2 million with ‘In The Zone’. Those figures are really good. But her shadow has surpassed 40 million total album sales. I know people will not believe this so I will break it down for you. ‘’ was certified 8x platinum in the US, 5x in Canada, and platinum in the following places: Australia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Spain, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Korea, and Taiwan. In these places she was certified gold for the same album: UK, France, Ireland, Switzerland, Venezuela, Malaysia, South Africa, and Indonesia. Those all combined total to 26 million. Then her Spanish language effort ‘Mi Reflejo’ and the Christmas CD ‘My Kind of Christmas’ both of which sold 3 million copies. So now her total is 32 million albums, and then the album many refer to as a flop, ‘Stripped’. This album has sold 8 million copies worldwide and give her a total of 40 million albums sold. So who is in whose shadow?

    Sorry, you’re wrong… Britney has a world wide sales of over 76 million albums… check your facts with credible sources.

  2. David says:

    Sorry, as Maria said, WRONG!!! Britney has now sold over 84 million records internationally. Way over “her shadow”. Hence, Christina is still her shadow….
    Much Love

  3. Angelina says:

    Lol they got to you first but damn, where did you get such wrong information?? Just Britney’s first 2 albums sold more then all of Christina’s albums and singles put together

  4. Wow. says:

    You must feel stupid now.
    Britney: 84M
    Christina: 37M

    There’s a reason for it too.

  5. Kyle says:

    Lol what a jerk, why would you come on here and embarrass yourself with such a stupid non-factual post. Britney spears is the best selling female artist this decade, 1998-2008, she’s even beat Madonna, Mariah Carey.

  6. WAZZAROO says:

    OH PLEASE, I LOVE BOTH ARTISTS BUT, YOU CANNOT SAY THAT BRITNEY IS BEST, YES SHE MAY HAVE SOLD MORE ALBUMS BUT ONLY FROM KIDS MAINLY. CHRISTINA IS THE VOICE BRITNEY WAS THE PERFORMER, HOWEVER BRITNEY HAS GOT A LITTLE RELAXED WITH HER RECENT WOMANIZER PERFORMANCES (X FACTOR). WHO WANTS TO GO TO A CONCERT AND HERE SOMEONE MIME, ITS BORING AND SAD!!!! CHRISTINA CAN SET THE ROOF ON FIRE AT ANY CONCERT SHE DOES! “STRIPPED” WAS A HUGE HIT HERE IN THE UK AND BRITNEY’S “IN THE ZONE” FLOPPED! PLUS SHE HAS TOTALLY STOLE CHRISTINA’S CIRCUS THEME IDEA FROM HER CONCERT AND “HURT” VIDEO. GET YOUR OWN IDEAS LOVE.

  7. QueenAnn says:

    I think that the Britney fans are getting the 73 million number from total SINGLES not ALBUMS! Now who feels stupid?

  8. Jajaja says:

    Ahahahaha !! Christina is 23132131093210931 x better than Britney !! But wait… who is Britney ?? Is she the one who she showed her VAGINA , the one that she had sex a 14 years old, took drugs at 15, drink at 13, had 20 plastic surgeries and the one who doesn’t ever sing live and does always lip syncing because she has a crappy voice and a fake voice? Oh now I know who she is! You people are so fu**ing gay to compare Christina to Sh**ney ! Christina is a true artist not a fake who does anything to appear in the magazines with her vagina showing! Come on people….

  9. saby says:

    Christina doesn’t prostitute herself like Britney in womanizer

  10. LOL says:

    @jajaja Britney’s still better,:D she makes Christina look sh*t. Britney has a star on the Hollywood hall of fame, Christina doesn’t. personally I like them both but I prefer Britney cause her musics better, and she just WHOOPS Christina A_S_S.

  11. bellz says:

    Christina is a sl*t…..in her newest sh** Gaga wannabe video not myself tonight…Britney is so much better than she is…… Christina always is in the shadow of our goddess Miss Britney Spears!!!!!!

  12. Floptina says:

    you are really stupid!
    You are comparing Britney’s US sales, with Floptina’s worldwide sales!
    that is really unfair.
    And Britney’s first two albums combined sold 45 million copies WW, five million more than all Christina’s albums combined!
    so, you are a real idiot,

    goodbye Floptina fan!

  13. Gorkem says:

    You idiot.. Britney’s first album has sold 28 millions, second one 24 millions, third one 15 millions and fourth one 10 millions.. Britney is an international superstar and she’s the biggest selling female of the decade.. Nobody even knows who FLOPTINA is in a lot of countries.. Britney has a global impact and don’t compare that unpopular losers to Britney.. You are taking Britney’s US SALES to that loser’s international sales LOL.. You are INSECURE.. FLOPTINA is an EPIC FAILURE and everybody is already making fun of her latest failure FLOPONIC whereas Britney is already one of TOP 3 most powerful musicians (Forbes)

  14. fixmenow says:

    What an idiot. A platinum certification does not amount to 1 million albums shifted in all markets. That’s only in the US. In the UK an album only has to ship 300,000 to get a platinum certification. In the Australia it’s only 70,000. Ireland = 10,000.

  15. claire says:

    hey Britney is still the best no matter what happen many loves her music till now!!!!

  16. BrtineyLover says:

    Christina fans need to stop being so delusional Britney is the best and always will be.for example Britney made a big comeback with womanizer while Christina hasn’t had a hit in like 8 years. Christina fans need to face the facts and stop lying to themselves because Britney will always be better

  17. kelly says:

    who cares who sold more the fact is CHRISTINA CAN SING AND BRITNEY CAN’T!

  18. Court says:

    Britney has had two number one singles in the past two years…when was the last number one Christina had?

  19. katrina says:

    I think it’s funny both those chicks are making millions and you guys are all on here swearing at each other about who is better, do you think either of them care? They’re both rich and famous all they ever wanted.

  20. britneylover says:

    Queen Ann is really stupid because her albums sell more than her singles so it makes sense if she sold 100 million albums

  21. buyflopneyjean says:

    LMAO britney has sold more because she has 8 studio albums and xtina 5…. its bound to happen idiots but now ya’ll can’t talk about flops when brittlekneee untalentedspears flopped harder than bionic with flopney jean, she can’t get a hit song with a 6 million dollar music video and now she’s stuch at a sad ass casino show where she sucks at performing. flopney fans please stop embarrassing yourself and wait in the dark while britney goes back to Louisiana to wrestle some pigs meanwhile legendtina has some fun with say something slaying the charts and watching lady gaga’s fall from grace.

  22. buyflopneyjean says:

    btw she stepped out of her shadow when stripped came out……. how come she has 5 grammys and britney 1?…. is she was so much under her “shadow” how come she has three number 1 singles in her debut and britney only has one?…………… huh?……….

  23. buyflopneyjean says:

    christina’s past solo hit single gas keeps getting better released 6 years ago not ten you morons. her last hit single was say something this year and britney had *crickets* with work flop and perfume.

  24. SpearingForLife says:

    @buyflopneyjean I would never usually post on a thread that’s so old but since you decided to try and be cute let me educate your ass!! Britney’s albums selling so much during her debut was so a lot more important than getting a number 1 single!!! 14 Million copies in the US ALONE with baby one more time is much much much better than getting 3 #1 singles and selling 8 million albums. Christina’s debut album sold 17 million worldwide… Britney’s debut sold 30 million! Britney’s 2nd album sold 24 million worldwide with no #1 US singles but 10 million US album sales… Yew mad boo? Britney’s star power shifted albums not single songs! Her first 2 albums are certified DIAMOND in the US ner ner ner ner…..Britney was banned from radio starting from her first single from her third album slave for you up until her 2nd single from her fourth album toxic (toxic reaching #9) which made it impossible for her singles to make any dent on the billboard hot 100. Still she has had a few #1’s in recent years WOMANIZER, 3, Hold It Against Me, S&M remix with Rihanna, Scream & Shout with Will I Am wasn’t #1 but still sold 3.2 million digital copies in the United States! Till the world ends remix with Kesha and Nicki Minaj did well also even though Till the world ends sold 2,815,000 in the US I wanna go became her biggest radio hit ever! And sad ass Casino show you say? Britney makes 1 million per show these days in Vegas when all is done with merchandise profit and her new negotiated deal! Britney’s song with Will I Am was one of the biggest tracks of 2013 you fool!!! That was a feature but so was Christina’s so your ass can’t say shitsu!!

    BTW in 2012 Britney made $58M and was the highest earning female artist at #7 on Forbes list….. Yet she didn’t have any new music out LOL what a legend! You damn well know that Britney didn’t promote her album! She didn’t perform her single anywhere and first time she entered a stage in 2013 was for her first Vegas show on December 27th! OVER 3 WEEKS AFTER HER ALBUM WAS RELEASED…. It was obvious that album was created for it’s extra material in Vegas!

    I mean look at this… Christina”s top selling digital songs are all features apart from one song from 2006….

    Top-selling digital songs:
    6,507,000, “Moves Like Jagger” (Maroon 5 feat. Aguilera)
    3,859,000, “Say Something” (A Great Big World and Aguilera)
    2,406,000, “Feel This Moment” (Pitbull feat. Aguilera)
    1,783,000, “Ain’t No Other Man”

    If Britney Jean was created for anything other than Vegas and Vegas hype then Britney would have gone on a promotional tour that was more like Taylor Swift’s promo tour for 1989 than I am Britney Jean… The documentary that was all about Britney’s Vegas show. Stop acting like Britney did everything she could to make Britney Jean successful when all she did was have a listening party with Ryan Seacrest….. Girl bye! Stay mad boo.
