BIONIC is her least favorite album by the GP, if we talk about streaming. It is consistently below Lotus by a margin :dizzy_face:

"Unless It's With You" has now more streams on Spotify than "Like I Do" (even though the latter was released before, had a bit of "promo", a lyric video and Grammy nomination hype). 

The HIT that got away :shook:

Please X, release UIWY as a radio single now that the Christmas freeze is over! It can't be ignored like that! :shook:

we're taking liberation here right? If yes then that's quite a feat esp for doing practically nothing to promote the album.

Unrelated but still, a reminder of how great her best album to date truly is:

It could've been 3.4M+ had she just added 4 more songs to disc 2 in order to meet the time requirement for double disc RIAA certifications. My queen of self-sabotage and not giving a fuck. :cry:

Oh well, at least it was sold for double the price so she still got double the coin lol

Liberation needs to cross 100M already on Spotify. WeRUselessCA should playlist some of the songs, especially UIWY since it has already passed LID and it's just an album track. "Twice" also gets good recurrent streams (with a proper playlist push it could even pass "Accelerate" in total number of streams)

Is Liberation likely to catch Lotus at some point in terms of WW sales? 

Liberation is ~300k at the moment, right? Does anyone know how many Lotus had sold after 6 or 7 months?

I don't think RCA would EVER do something like this for Xtina. They didn't do sh!t for her during Stripped, I don't think they will start now.

Lotus is at 1 million ww sales, I think...

I hope Liberation gets to 500k with time. It all depends on how she handles the album. If she stops promoting it, then no. If she has one or two more singles, and does more promotion for it, then sure, with time.

Oh okay. It's miles off Lotus. No chance then I guess. :rip:

Genuinely surprised that Lotus is at 1 million WW. Didn't it do Liberation-esque numbers domestically in its first week?

It kind of did, but she went off to have massive hits like FTM and SS right after that, and she also promoted the album on TV more.

I guess people were more aware of what she was doing thanks to the Voice. I am glad she left the show though, because we finally got the tour.

Liberation made Lotus look like a Stripped-sized level smash era :rip: I mean "Your Body" is eligible for Gold certification (on top of the video nearing 200M YT views), "Just a Fool" is Platinum eligible, and Lotus itself is Gold.

Liberation, unfortunately, is far from Gold. It's struggling to reach 100K in the US (but WW it's at 300K+ so not too bad there). A push is sorely needed as the album as it's just standing there. FIL is likely somewhere closer to Gold due to streams, though.

Lotus is certificated gold in the US and Canada. Liberation sold two times more outside US than in US so I think Lotus is at least around 1 million worldwide by this time.

Gary Trust is Billboard's Senior Director of Charts/Hot 100 Chart Manager and posted these in 2014:



"Just a Fool" was last updated at 802,000 in 2015 (downloads only). With streams and the extra paid downloads since then, it should be near Platinum or Platinum eligible. Wikipedia says that it's at 1.3 million but I can't find a source for that number, only for 802k here: https://www.billboard.com/articles/colu ... ongs-debut

And this was the U.S. sales number for Liberation as of December 1 last year (the most recent update):
Christina Aguilera = the hits
Stripped = the impact

And this is source for FIL. It's a little outdated since it's from October:


So FIL is more than halfway towards Gold certification. Continue to stream it y'all! I hope the GRAMMYs gives it a push.

They certificate albums based on single sales also. So if Your Body was a platinum hit and Lotus still sold the same, it'd be a platinum certified album.
