‘Me Against The Music’ Debuts Strong In Germany

According to Yahoo-Deutschland has landed at number 5 in the German singles chart, this week’s highest debut for an international/non-German act. This will come as especially good news for Britney and her label since Germany is the world’s 2nd biggest market for Western pop music, behind the US. The only other international act in the top 5 was Seal, who rose one spot to #4 with his song Love’s Divine. Pink rose 3 spots to #8 after 2 weeks in the German charts. Britney has in the past enjoyed enormous popularity in Germany, where all 3 of her previous albums have gone German platinum (300,000 sold) but German music sales have declined more dramatically than in most countries as a result of net piracy and a weakened economy. This could be a good sign that Britney may get good sales for ‘In the Zone’ despite the general decline in German music sales.

    I don’t think this person’s lying… Germany *is* more heavily populated, after all. We just hear about the UK more because their artists can sort of easily break into the US market — but German artists have a harder time.
