The truth about Britney Spears’ album sales in Europe


After years and years of conflicting information, there are still doubts about Austrian certifications being based on the current criteria or the one in place upon the release of the album. Thus, Oops can be certified 2xP for 80,000 or 100,000 units depending on the case.

That said, it isn’t a big story as figures in Austria are rather low since this market almost always kept its ratio of a tenth of the German one or lower.

Merging all the data together concludes on the following album sales to date:

  • Baby One More Time – 55,000
  • Oops!… I did It Again – 100,000
  • Britney – 50,000
  • In The Zone – 30,000
  • Greatest Hits, My Prerogative – 35,000
  • Blackout – 10,000
  • Circus – 10,000
  • The Singles Collection – N/A

Hi MJD what was the biggest Janet Jackson’s era in Europe in your opinion globally? Here in France it was clear that it was during the Velvet Rope she was everywhere and did 4 or 5 sold out concert in 1998

Isn’t 1xP=40k for foreign artists since 2002/01 to 2008/01


Until 12/1999, 1xP=100.000 in Nertherlands. BOMT is officially certified 3xP, why did you use the criteria since 12/1999 to 12/2005, which equals to 240.000? (I am talkin about official awards)
