Yearly Most Successful Female Album: The New Generation (1999-2017)

IMG_0095

Our female celebration continues with its final chapter. From 1999, a new wave of female superstars replaced the former one with the inevitable Britney Spears leading the way.

The fantastic run of Madonna, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion and Whitney Houston came to an abrupt end with this switch. This big 4 topped 12 out of 15 years from 1984 to 1998. We will see that the story has been completely different since 1999.

As a reminder, guidelines of this articles can be found on the first chapter here.

How well did Femme Fatale and Blackout do?

FF had 3 international #1 hits with TTWE, IWG, and HIAMe (#1 in 6 nations), plus she had sold pretty well with her album as well, letting her catchup to Blackout. Due to the lower sales expectations of 2011, I would be surprised if Britney wasn’t close to the #5 spot for 2011.

Blackout I assume would possibly be top 10 for 2007? But I understand you likely don’t bother listing that low for a years best.
