The truth about Britney Spears’ album sales in Asia


A third country from Southeast Asia confirms a pattern which is more than a coincidence. While music industries of East Asian countries see foreign artists performing similarly than in Japan, Southeast Asian markets are closer to the American one. The 1 to 120 ratio of sales between each album from Malaysia to the US fits perfectly with market size of 7,6 million to 940 million in 2001, respectively, in these countries.

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

  • Baby One More Time – 90,000
  • Oops!… I did It Again – 85,000
  • Britney – 50,000
  • In The Zone – 25,000
  • Greatest Hits, My Prerogative – 25,000
  • Blackout – 7,500
  • Circus – 12,500
  • The Singles Collection – 5,000
