UK Album Charts Update

Contributed anonymously:

In her second week on the chart, Britney Spears’ ‘In The Zone’ drops a massive 23 places from its initially disappointing #14, to #37. Her pre-release rival Kylie Minogue drops a less embarrassing, but still poor, 9 places, from #6 to #15. Pink is also doing poorly, slipping already to #21, although she’s so far had a better run than both Kylie and Britney.

Ironically, despite being on the charts for over a year, Britney’s biggest home-land rivals Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera maintain their top 30 placings, and this week land higher than her, at #29 and #27 respectively.

    Well, I’m sure Britney will climb back up the charts, as soon as she brings a tour over there. Anyhow, it’s no big deal, she’s not doing well in the UK.. not really important

    If rest of the world is not important, why even release ITZ overseas?

    I didn’t say the rest of the world is not important.. I said UK is not that important.

  4. lopez_lover says:

    Cause ITZ is a flop in UK, so it’s not important…hmm… right

    Well that understandable…both Christina and Justin have way larger fan bases in Europe. The tour only gets sales so high…so I wouldn’t count on the tour. And whoever said Europe wasn’t important…well that’s where over half the sales come from…so it must be important.

    I just can’t take any place seriously where Michael Jackson debuts at #1 and it isn’t the 80s. There’s something seriously wrong with that. So as far as I’m concerned, the UK means nothing because they’re obviously stuck two decades behind us.

    International debuts include #1’s in France, Korea, Mexico and Argentina. In The Zone also had top 10 debuts in Germany, Canada, Australia, Denmark, Japan, Austria, Holland, Switzerland and Ireland. 14 – Spain 6 – Israel (not sure if it’s in Europe) and probably many more.. that’s pretty good, isn’t it?

    Christina’s ‘Stripped’ dropped all the way down to the 50’s after only a few weeks following it’s debut on the UK album chart. It didn’t start to climb up the charts till a second single was released. Stripped had a worse debut on the UK chart than In the Zone a fell faster. In the Zone might not prove to be a hit in the UK till another single is released. Anyway Britney is #1 on the World Album Chart.

    I like Me Against The Music a lot, but I dunno if it was right as first single material. Just like Xtina’s Dirrty didn’t seem like a great first single for her either. However, Dirrty set up Xtina’s whole new image and attitude, so maybe MATM is just the first stage of what Britney has to offer. If I Got That Boom Boom is her second single, I can’t imagine it doing much better in the UK. I don’t think the UK is used to our new Southern hip hop sound. But leave it to Britney to be original and get people listening.

    Why didn’t you mention albums which have achieved something rather albums which have dropped? Something like …..WESTLIFE are number 1 in the UK Album charts!

    WHAT THE HELL EVER;; Britney is doing great in other bigger music markets like the US and Germany. The UK is one country and not that dammed important for overall music sales. And by the way Christina was at 40 during her second week in the UK charts with STRIPPED!
