Album ATRL thinks is a flop, but actually did okay

Recommended Posts

why are people saying albums that nobody ever called flops? :toofunny2:

 

OT: probably Manic by Halsey, it's often compared to Romance and Rare for release date and performance and it was clearly the biggest one by miles

I never get people saying Femme Fatale was a flop
It had #1, #3 and #7 peaking singles, how is that a flop era :psyduck:

I'm assuming becuz it didn't match Circus album sales

Liddos always trying to stir **** :deadbanana4: bite an Oreo or something 

Uhm, she's your fave so find the lie luhv. Circus is bigger than both FF and Lemonade (and chromatica!)

No lol. That shows it hasn't been certified in many, many countries. Certifications are never a good way to show an album's success unless they're up to date. Lover outperformed Witness (significantly) in almost every major European country bar France and Italy despite Witness being supported by a big worldwide hit at the time in terms of Feels.

Many, many countries have automatic certifications once the threshold is reached so your point doesn't really prove anything

So you joined a few days ago yet you’re familiar with threads made a year ago when ATRL wasn’t even opened to visitors?

There's something called lurking babe.

They are in fact flops.

A Girl Like Me and Rated R are certified multi-platinum in the US.

 

If those are flops then so are previously mentioned albums such as Artpop and Joanne which will never scan multi-platinum or Chromatica that isn't even eligible for 1x Platinum yet.

Artpop and Chromatica. Thought the latter really isn’t considered a flop unless it’s an OGH.

Applause and DWUW:clap3: Atleast in the US they were relatively big.

Hmm but you just said ARTPOP didn't flop.

 

Rated R - 6.7M (as of mid 2019)

A Girl Like Me - 6.1M (as of mid 2019)

Artpop - 4.3M (as of late 2020)

 

That's a pretty significant gap. ARTPOP also didn't go Multi-Platinum anywhere in the world, A Girl Like Me is Multi-Platinum in 5 countries and Rated R in 2 countries (both 2xP in the US & UK). ARTPOP had 1 top 10 while AGLM & RR both had 3 top 10s including a #1 hit each. Care to elaborate ? :lakitu:

 Rated R came out in 2009 and according to Billboard it had sold only 1.1M  6 years after its release. It was a flop, sadly.

Little Monsters: Artpop, Joanne and Chromatica aren't underperformances, let alone flops. They did completely fine.

ARTPOP, people treat is as if it was Bionic, Glory, Smile or something like that when it sold 2 million and had 2 hits. :rip: 

considering the multi-million dollar rollout that ended with gaga firing her manager, its safe to say it wasn't a success.

Such as? Without listing them your point doesn't prove anything. The audacity you have to say Lover and Witness were on the same level :rip: This really works well with the thread title.

The complete list is Japan, New Zealand, Spain, Italy, the UK, Denmark, Finland, Belgium, Portugal, Greece, Italy and France. Almost half of the countries currently awarding certifications. :) Once again, I was comparing the number of countries the records are certified in, and not the units sold. But of course you got overdefensive.
