I am curious what other lead singles that didn’t do too well commercially won a Grammy. I know Trouble didn’t do well in the States and she had much better success in Europe that era, so it was a nice surprise that she won a Grammy for it after all. Maybe it was to make things right cause they did her wrong with M!ss and didn’t expect for it to have such an impact?

We're talking about songs, but yeah, that Beyonce movie was also a FLOP.

Slave 4 U flopped in America. The Britney album probably has the highest first week sales for an album with a flop lead

Ikr...its no where near her best lead ( So What and  GTPS says hi) and it's the least remember from her leads. I feel like it was a pity Grammy for messing up with M!ss.

Keeps Getting Better was a top 10 hit from Greatest Hits, Not Myself Tonight top 20 from Bionic, and Burlesque soundtrack is approaching Platinum in the US. Your Body was a top 40 hit even. Only Accelerate truly flopped. Try again.

CTTR was a hit at least, so none for Katy so far :fan:

 

I'd say: 

 

Gaga: Perfect Illusio

Britney: Work Bitch/Make Me

Christina: Not Myself Tonight/Your Body/Accelerate

Kelly: Heartbeat Song/Love So Soft
