Lover for sure. You'd think the album crashed and burned ala Witness the way the were talking about it here when its success was admirable at worst. It's only fault was that she wasnt able to tour with it and then she dropped two far more acclaimed and talked about milestone albums back to back less than a year later so its gonna be an era/album thats obscured in year to come when looking over Taylor's career.

Lover sold millions in China and millions in USA and this is “concentrated in certain markets?”????

That's two markets so... yes? :toofunny2:

ARTPOP was a flop but it really didn’t do that bad considering everything that happened during 2013. Being a fan during that time was stressful cause the amount of hate she got. :toofunny2:
 

Applause however was a HIT which people only erase now because the album and subsequent singles bombed. It spent 14 consecutive weeks in the Top 10. Also did great on radio, they couldn’t even move onto the next single when they wanted cause Applause was still slaying.

Only two of the world’s biggest markets???

That doesn't change my point, which isn't about the number of copies sold, but the number of countries it's certified in. And I wasn't even talking about Lover to start with, I just threw it in there to compare. :skull:

I'm not saying it wasn't an underperformance, cause it was, but calling it a flop isn't fair imo: It went #1 and is eligible for platinum, sold 2.5M units ww, had a big hit (Say Something) and a moderate hit (Filthy) and the tour did amazing (+$200M gross).

Nobody calls it a flop. Some people were saying it was bigger than Lemonade.

:skull:

Britney fans are just...something else

It was a colossal failure

 

It didn't even chart for 20 weeks in the US, and is certified Platinum in zero markets :deadbanana: and after the SUPER BOWL. Filthy was also not a hit. It charted for 6 weeks :deadbanana:Say Something was a cute hit WW, but the album itself was a gigantic bomb

Not the instant finger-pointing to try and sweep under the rug that there was just a whole ass thread where britney stans said FF was bigger. :deadbanana2:

right ? :lmao:

Imagine believing FF was bigger than LEMONADE :skull:

 

 

Also,  No matter how hard you try, ARTPOP did average, not the flop OGHs want you to believe. 

2.5M and 2 hits isn't the biggest failure ever :toofunny3:

From last year, Rare and Chromatica actually did well.

Rare is certified in 3 countries despite having great peaks worldwide and a re-release... I don’t think Rare did well at all minus it’s debut week.

 

like having the top 10 peaks all around the world is an amazing achievement but if the longevity isn’t there then that’s all it is. And the album served none clearly.

Chromatica done well for Gagas standards after Joanne, if we’re counting ASIB then it bombed completely but if we’re going from studio albums it’s pretty much on the same level as Joanne So it wasn’t an underperformance by any means.

Avril's Goodbye Lullaby. It was a flop and a big drop off for her standards, but overall it was in the top 40 best selling albums of 2011 ww.

certified at least Gold in 15 countries, 1.7M pure, 10M digital singles, probably Platinum-eligible in the US, and has over 480M on Spotify and 1B on YouTube :clap3:
