Lotus Never sold 1 Million :eek:
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. 
Sis Liberation barely charted outside of the US. It was the only market that made a splash. It did ok in Spain I guess.

Liberation sold around 300k copies worldwide and hasn't even marked 100k in US so there is no lie in what I have written, "sis". What splash are you talking about? It opened at #6 and fell to #98 following weak and left the chart completely after that.

Liberation selling 300K worldwide is mostly due to actual fans how much more if she actually cared to promote the album. I mean she only performed FIL twice.

esse perfil não divulga os números do Liberation com Streams. Já deve ter passado dos 100K nos EUA faz tempo!

Those numbers are mediocre for a superstar like her. She needs to PROMOTE!

I remember when I thought that her comeback will have 100k opening in US at least. I don't think that there are any huge plans in the making. She is probably releasing spanish record with minimal promo which can actually do better commercialy than Liberation due to her popularity in latin countries.

I don't know why RCA knowing how popular she is in latin american didn't release spanish version of You Lost Me, Just a Fool ( with Alejandro) and Twice or Unless its with you.

They tried it with Get Mine , get Yours....

Sales of the albums and WW SPS would be huge!

Exactly. Except the thing is that after Bionic, Xtina doesn't care about commercial success anymore. She's knows that she's an established artist and all, but at this rate she's going to keep diminishing in sales with every new album. It's basically the Fighters, other stanbases, and a select few from the GP that tuned in to Liberation. These one-week long eras of promo aren't enough, not to mention the fact that she hasn't promoted an album overseas since Back to Basics, pairing this with RCA being a cheap label that doesn't fund or do anything to help sell the album causes these numbers as a result. It's sad because Liberation has plenty of gems that people would love if they only knew about them.

She's way too talented to not be smashing at the top of every chart available. Us stans can only do so much to help sales.
Christina Aguilera = the hits
Stripped = the impact

I don't understand why she releases material she's not going to promote.

What's the point?

Promotion costs money. She is preparing material on her own terms and clearly with no deadline at all. I'm not suprised that her record label is not treating her as their primary target. There was no more promotion because there was no intrest from the public. She released colaborations with most currently relevant producers/artists as singles from the album and hadn't even entered the Hot 100 this era. It's obvious that the album would have done somehow better with more promo but I'm sure that for her label there were other more payable projects to invest in. I don't blame her for doing things on her own terms but each and every flop lowers the chances for getting budget/sponsor for the awaited proper promo for her next project.

Legend is worth approx. $200 million. She could have just paid for the promo herself if she really wanted to.

I feel like she just doesn't want to play the game anymore and hates doing promo shit...and she either doesn't really care or doesn't realise that unfortunately an unwillingness to "playing the game" has consequences even for someone as iconic as her.

It seems like you are still living in the 90s lol
Promoting your music doesn't matter anymore. Now it's all about streaming and being in the right playlist.
The only thing she's doing wrong is not being "present" overseas. She could have easily sold more by only visiting each country with the tour. But,you know, now she has other goals in her life and we only have to deal with it :)

As of today, Liberation's most listened to on Spotify:

FIL = 34M
"Accelerate" = 15M
"Twice" = 8M

Again, UIWY (5M) having more streams than LID (4.9M) despite only being an album track and receiving zero promo/video treatment (unlike LID) is interesting to see. Definitely a song with potential to pop if given the opportunity.

Keep streaming and spreading the word y'all.

The song could have 100 million streams and Queen will pay it dust.

True. So she's sold like 90 times the amount of albums than the current number 1 :laughing: Oh wow, it is so sad Christina is always blocked from the top spot. Anyways...

So Liberation is selling about 1k copies every 3 weeks in pure within the U.S. according to that chartdata update. I would like to see the next WW update with SPS included, though.
