Because putting such a big picture of the album cover there was totally necessary. Anyway, even if it wasn't meant shady, your post still read as if it was trying to fling shit.

No. I've nothing against Nelly. In fact I liked many singles from Loose. It was one of the big blockbusters of the past decade. I also listened to the song TSI on Youtube and it was catchy enough.

Why did they pay her dust even with the long break though? Are there many other popular artists on Interscope?
OK then, my bad. Interscope's roster of artists is way too big, they only care about spending money for Gaga and Lana Del Rey. I'm pretty sure Interscope wanted her to put out a follow-up to Loose ASAP since it was such a huge seller, and when she didn't, they were obvs 'robbed' of some cash. Nelly has stated a couple of times that Interscope has always supported her 'musical detours' but I don't buy it. They probably turned from TSI immediately after Big Hoops didn't do that well.

Re: Christina Aguilera - Where to from here?

So I have Interscope to blame for the existence of "Lana Del Rey"? Allrighty then.

No, you have her self-made viral video for Video Games on YouTube to blame.

Im not saying its not successful, but 2.6 million records in 2.5 years considering how popular her singles were in my opinion shows that she is more of a singles artist.

Re: Christina Aguilera - Where to from here?

Yeah, didn't Taylor Swift sell 2.6 million records in, like, a month?

I'm pretty sure her album has passed 2M already, but she still has her (blind it seems) country music-loving stans in the US, even though Red is more of a pop album. But yeah, she is still doing great, along with Adele regarding album sales. The other pop girls not so much.
