More importantly, it's number 1 on my chart

Is there any creature on earth as unfortunate as an ugly woman?

Re: Best-selling female album debuts in the US

But Britney's album sales becomes lesser the more her albums are released (the more recent her albums the lesser the debut sales number). What's the debut sales for Femme Fatale?

Didn't know Mimi's E=MC^2 has higher debut sales than TEOM.

The sales are lower these days, unless you do some special discounts to sell more like Taylor and Gaga did. 'Circus' sold 505k in it's opening week during the holidays, but it's very impressive because it didn't have any discounts.

I didn't know Underwood was that popular given the record of Idol winners' sales.

Well maybe that should become the new trend, sell your album cheaper, you'll sell more. Not like the artists make much money from album sales anyway, its mostly touring where they get their cash.

But then again, that's if you care enough about album sales.

Re: Best-selling female album debuts in the US

Why is there a distincion made between female and male album sales?

Is there any creature on earth as unfortunate as an ugly woman?

Re: Best-selling female album debuts in the US

I think sales was better back in the late 90's early 2000's because Illegal downloading wasn't as big or advanced then.

Re: Best-selling female album debuts in the US

Funny how most of the best selling albums aren't necessarily the ones with biggest debuts. Unlike movies, most artist will take an album with good legs over one huge week of sales. But that doesn't make it any less amazing going platinum in just one week!

Re: Best-selling female album debuts in the US

Some facts about this list:

- Britney Spears is the one with biggest number of albums (4 albums) followed by Alicia Keys with three albums.
- "Oops...I Did It Again" is the only album to sell 10 million.
- Only two albums released in the 90s.
- The oldest release is "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill" released in September 1998.
- Madonna & Janet Jackson have only one album.
- Mary J. Blige have two albums in the top 10 both released in the second half of the 00s.
- Notable names (who were very active & successful in the last decade) missing from the list are Christina Aguliera, Kelly Clarckson & Pink.
