The UK only uses Britney for nostalgia with BOMT and Toxic, period. She's never had a #1 album in the UK. Her last certified album was Femme Fatale (Gold) and it peaked at #8. Her last solo Top 5 single was Womanizer in 2008. :rip: 

 

Both ST and Lemonade have sold over 500k units each in the UK, something Britney hasn't accomplished since Britney and In The Zone.

 

Take your guess :sistrens:

You're only going to see Xtina stans talking sales so bravely when it's another artist's career  :dies:

Beyonce was dragged for selling just 900 copies of the gift in a full tracking week:deadbanana4:

 

her album with Jay z Also completely bombed, and the hive dragging Britney for lack of Hits When Beyonce ain't  had a Solo hit in years and years either.

 

Beyonce's last Solo project that was a hit  was 5 years ago 2016 Lemonade....

 

No one checks for Beyonce's music either Lemonade is her lowest selling album that produced 0 hits....:rip:

 

 

The gift was downloaded just 900 times in a week britney's never Tanked that hard and there is absolutely no excuses It was a music project from the beyonce...

Beyonce's not been a huge name here musically for years Know one would even be able you tell you what her last hit was :rip: 

 

They Hive trying to discredit britney when there fave ain't had a hit EITHER in years not a hit album in YEARS... Britneys name alone is way more famous in the UK that's not even up for a debate.

 

The hive really trying it :laugh:

The hive really are trying it. It seems thats all they do these days. 

 

Britney has been a household name over here, ever since DESTINY'S CHILD SUPPORTED her on tour.

 

Please let's not with these pointless Versus. At least pit people, of the same calibre together. ****.

 

Britney's out here having laws changed. Legends only.

I love Britney and don’t particularly like Bey but those very same arguments about her not having a hit era in a while (Lemonade was #11 in year end, it was most definitely a success there) could apply to Britney tracing all the way back to In The Zone :deadbanana:

The way you're trying to compare a mid-week pure sales figure for a compilation soundtrack to anything Britney has released just goes to show how baseless your whole argument is. :rip: That figure doesn't include streams, or several days of sales. Take a break from embarrassing yourself for a minute.

 

Also, not a single person was referring to "hits" in this thread. Everyone talked about how Beyoncé has decimated Britney here in overall sales and touring. They're not even close to one another.

 

Beyoncé's last studio album is certified Platinum in the UK. The last time Britney had a Platinum certified album here was in 2008. Hell, they both released albums in 2016 - one is certified Platinum and the other isn't certified at all.

 

You have literally no argument, and why a Jennifer Lopez stan is even wading into this discussion to talk about hits, I'll never know. She's not even in the top 40 highest selling female artists in the UK. The last time she entered the top 10 with a single was 2011 and her last album didn't even reach the top 40. This is not the discussion for you, girl. :toofunny3:

Zero receipts that Destiny's Child supported Britney on her first tour?? Chile. They were an opening act for a show in Hawaii. Thats facts. lol I mean i said supported cos it sounded less harsh, but since you're going to try it again.... and Zero receipts that they have changed a law due to Britney's conservatorship battle? Again - LOOK IT UP.

 

Also the question wasn't who made more money in sales, or spent longer on the charts lol. The question was bigger Icon.. As i previously stated, Britney's no longer considered an icon. She's in the legendary lane now. Hence why the Hive really should compare Beyonce to someone in her lane. Maybe Rihanna as they both had SOLO careers that started around the same time - BOMT is 14x DIAMOND... FOURTEEN. 

 

Also, while I'm here, Britney's career was and literally is THE BLUEPRINT for countless female artists that followed and STILL TO THIS DAY the same model is used... That's why Britney's a legend, among many other accomplishments and the Hive will forever be fuming about it. :coffee2:

You are embarrassing yourself. Beyoncé has outsold Britney Spears in the UK in both albums and singles. Beyoncé also demolishes her in UK touring numbers. The BBC named her one of the most-influential people and most-powerful artist just last year.

So what if beyonce's outsold britney that doesn't mean **** why ya acting like I said Beyonce wasn't massively successful? I didn't ya all implying beyonce's this massive hit maker and is more relevant then britney when the reality is beyonce ain't had any hits in years and her Last 2 music projects were flops to sis.

Embarrassing myself? lol. Y'all are SO caught up on sales and numbers that you actually missed the entire point of this thread... Now that's embarrassing.. Britney is possibly one of, if not THE MOST searched for person on the planet.. and she had no tour or album out. stay fuming though.

To be fair, the Lemonade singles were not on streaming outside Tidal and UK was very heavy streaming leaning by 2014. Withholding on streaming hindered her singles but helped the album, the same thing even happened to Taylor’s 1989 singles.

 

Both names are cemented in pop culture and music history forever, which is “more iconic” or what not is subjective, Bey is more currently successful and is slightly bigger than Brit overall (UK), the discussion is just absurd at this point :rip:

 

Something actually measurable - in UK

Most searched? Britney.

Bigger tours? Beyoncé.

Bigger album and singles? 1998-2007 Britney, 2008-2017 (and overall) Beyoncé. Neither have released anything (in Britney’s case) or something noteworthy (Perfect and Mi Gente don’t count for Bey) since 2017.
