‘Stripped’ A Flop? I Think So…

Contributed by BSnews:

It has been over a year and a month or so since ’s second album ‘Stripped’ was released. It has sold around 3.5 million in America and 8,643,000 million worldwide according to Nielsen Soundscan. I might be wrong about America, she probably sold less but I’m pretty sure it’s around that much. Those are the sales for 2002-2003, 1 year sales.

Many Christina Aguilera fans were laughing how Britney Spears third album, ‘Britney’, supposedly flopped, selling only 4.5 million in America and roughly 10 million worldwide… Those are the sales for 2001-2002, 1 year sales.

Well, guess what? ‘Stripped’ is a bigger flop than ‘Britney’, in that case.

Not only does Britney got Christina beat, in first week sales, she also got Christina beat, in one year sales and overall sales.

Who’s laughing now?

I know many of you Christina fans are going to deny the fact that ‘Stripped’ is a flop but there is proof(Nielsen) to prove it. Christina may reach 10 million next year and you might claim, she’s selling more than Britney but don’t you think Britney would of sold more than 10 million since 2002? Yes, she would of. Too bad, Christina fans… Maybe next time.

    And the point of this was…?? It’s not about album sales- it’s about quality. and in that category, Stripped is the obvious winner. So brag about sales all you want. It doesn’t prove anything.

    I think the person posted this because Christina fans were laughing at Britney’s album yet she sold more than ‘Stripped’, in one year. Who has the last laugh?

    It’s not surprising that another Britney fan is jumping around crazy babbling about sales again. After all, her sales are the only thing Britney has got going for her. It’s all they can brag about. Btw, I think ‘Britney’ was only considered a flop compared to Britney’s own previous sales, you moron. 10 million isn’t a flop. Stripped could sell 100 copies and it wouldn’t change a thing. Sales don’t tell anything – look how much Xtina’s first album sold, and that album was pure crap.

    nobody ever denied the fact that Britney sold more albums than xtina. no duh. but Christina sold them through her talent……..Britney sold her albums through publcicity. when it comes to quality OVER quantity…..xtina wins hands down. and compared to Britney’s big expectations her fans keep shoving in everyone’s faces…..Britney’s album was a big flop. Christina fans knew she was gonna turn some fans away with her new look. not only that….but all her singles got major airplay. Britney’s songs are hardly ever played…….I’ve heard overprotected like once on the radio….I’ve only seen boys on special biographies…..and I’ve never seen I love rock n’ roll anywhere except the net. as for xtina…..I’ve seen all her songs and videos practically EVERYWHERE.

    Firstly your figures of 8.6 million worldwide are from early October 2003 she has now surpassed 9 million quite easily and heading for 10 million. Firstly an album that sells over about 5 million worldwide by a major artist is not a flop whether that be Christina,Britney or Justin. I think the worldwide figure of 10 million for Britney is utter tripe used to give your argument some strength I think you’ll find she sold 6 million worldwide with Britney(which is not a flop) it’s pretty good sales. People take insults such as flop used on this site too seriously to suggest these sales figures are flops is utterly ridiculous. ITZ is going to struggle to match Stripped worldwide because Britney sells very well in America but worldwide she sells very poorly. EG 3 Weeks and she’s out of the UK TOP 50 Albums charts , At 30 in Australia etc. While Christina’s probably going to have less sales in America but sells her arse off Worldwide after over a year in the charts she’s 25 in The UK album charts and top 15 Australia etc. But after all that I wish these moronic essays that are usually trolls are banned from the site. Most of them are stupid and have no factual information , just biased fans looking to have a dig-what a waste of time.

    quality over quantity, you say.. Well, Britney’s got Christina beat.. Stripped *yawn*, if I wanted to listen to bitching, I’d work for those help lines.. Britney sold albums because obviously people like her music. Why would we buy her album because she posed topless? Yeah, well maybe a few people brought it for that reason, but majority didn’t. We like what we hear, we buy, what we like… That’s the truth, y’all can’t deny it.

  8. hellahooked says:

    Britney’s album never sold 6 million worldwide. She sold at least 10 million. ITZ has just been released. MATM wasn’t a strong single. Once she releases a new single, tours and so on, her album will probably move up the charts.. If you didn’t read the persons essay, you’d see, she said those were the final figures for a whole year. Duhh. I agree with you though, that these essays need to stop.

    How about Stripped is not a flop by any means. I come here every day and read some absurd comment about Britney vs Christina. First of all Christina and Britney are not in the same place. All you fans out there be honest with yourself. Does Britney have the great voice that Christina has, Nope, did Christina lose some of her fan base when she broke the mold and Dirrty came out, YES! Once parents saw Dirrty do you think they ran out and bought stripped for their 12 and 13 yr olds. no they didn’t, Do you think Christina and her management company new that, YES! Why is Stripped not a flop because after all the changes she has still sold records and she has been asked to host or co-host multiple shows and her voice is finally being reconized as a leader, Why because Christina, Britney, Beyonce, Mandy, Jessica , these women are all around the same age and it’s time to grow up, how many former teen pop stars are still singing, TIffany, NO,Debbie Gibson, No, It was time for Christina to do something before all she could sell would be bubble gum. Christina has secured a place for herself as a strong women who can get down and dirrty and can still pull off a power ballad with a ball gown on. Christina has pulled ahead of the game and made you look, now she can do anything she wants, which leaves her open for so many other things, Stripped a Flop Not on your life, Christina has made sure there won’t be a vh1 special on Where our they now for her. Whether you like it or hate it doesn’t even matter because she has made sure you know her name.

    OK YOU JUST FLAT OUT MADE UP THE 8 MILLION…SHE IS JUST A FEW HUNDRED AWAY FROM 10 MILLION. AND YOU SAY IT’S A FLOP. WELL IT’S SOLD MORE THAN BEYONCE AND JUSTIN…BUT BOTH THEIR ALBUMS ARE CONSIDERED SUCCESSES. AND BRITNEY DOES NOT HAVE CHRISTINA BEAT…HER ALBUM WAS LOW ON SALES AND IS DROPPING…SHE WENT FROM #1-#3-#8…IN LESS THAN A MONTH…CHRISTINA STAYED AT #2 LONGER THAN THAT. EVEN THOUGH CHRISTINA’S DIRRTY ONLY DEBUTED IN THE HIGH 40’S…IT WAS #1 EVERYWHERE ELSE. LITERALLY. WHERE AS MATM HAS FALLING OUT OF THE TOP 30 IN OTHER CHARTS. AND REALLY DO YOU THINK ANY OF BRITNEY’S SONGS WILL HAVE THE IMPACT OF “BEAUTIFUL”? YOU ASKED WHO LAUGHING NOW…I AM…BECAUSE YOU MADE YOURSELF LOOK LIKE A DUMBA$$!

    Who cares how much Stripped sold? I mean, Britney’s always going to outsell Christina because she has a more likable personality and because she does a lot more press. However, Christina did good too. The days of popstars selling 10 million here in America are gone for both Britney and Christina. I think as fans we should be very pleased because 10 million worldwide for Britney and 8 million worldwide for Christina is still excellent. Both albums were good and I may prefer Britney, but Christina’s Stripped album was hardly a flop. It was good and I really liked it too.
