View Full Version : Christina's Had More No. 1 Singles than the other 3 pop acts combined:o !

I was always under the impression that Britney/Backstreet Boys/NSync had more no. 1s than X-Tina (in fact, I only knew of Genie In a Bottle:o !) I was just looking up the US Charts since 1990, and X-Tina has 4 US no. 1s (Genie, Come On Over, What A Girl Wants, and Lady Marmelade.) Backstreet Boys have 0, NSync has 0, and Britney has only 1 (Baby One More time.) Very interesting, isn't it:) . And even more surprising, to me at least, is that Stripped, with somewhere around 9.5 million copies sold worldwide after one year, outsold Britney at the same point. Just goes to show you how biased the media can be. Even as a devout X-Tina fan, I thought for sure the other pop acts would have had more success.

I lied. Nsync's "It's gonna be me" went no. 1:) . Still, 4 to 2:o .

"Beautiful" was also #1 last year!
Christina can really sing. I love stripped, I did not buy it until I heard "Beautiful" and read that none of the remaining songs where like "Dirty" which I hated. I'm so happy I bought Stripped, it's a fantastic album!

I think Beyonce wins that battle. I know "Survivor", "Independant Women, Part 1", "Bills, Bills, Bills", "Say My Name", "Baby Boy" and "Crazy in Love" all went to #1.

Granted, some are Destiny's Child, but Beyonce wrote all of Destiny's child stuff (or most)

i dont think its fair to compare destiny's child(though bee was the lead singer) to x-tina. we'll have to see how wee bee does in her 2nd album.

Survivor didn't hit no. 1, but Bootylicious did:o :confused: .And Beyonce isn't pop.

Britney however is more popular world wide.

Not at all:eek: ! X-Tina's worldwide album sales have ALWAYS been higher than Brit. That is why "Britney" has only sold an estimated 6-8 million worldwide 2 years after release compared with "Stripped" selling 9-9.5 million despite "Britney's" 4.5 milllion US Count to "Stripped's" 3.8 million US Count.

If it's "not fair" to count Beyonce's Destiny Child hits, then you shouldn't count Christina's Lady Marmelade either.

How is the media biased towards X-tina? I don't see where they have been, because ever since she came out with Genie In a Bottle she has been praised.

I think her new attitude about everything sucks. She has turned into quite a bitch. Maybe it's because she is feeling herself since she has sold so many albums. She does have some good singles, but Stripped is not a great album.

If you are going to classify Beyonce as "R&B", then Christina should be as well. "Stripped" has more "R&B" than pop

i thought Britney had 3 US NUMBER ONES? Dirrty and Beautiful went to number one in the UK Stripped is a brilliant album aswell. Didnt Britneys album ''Britney' sell 4 million worldwide and not just in America. I think its funny Britneys on her 4th album and Christina hasn t even started number 3,,,, interesting

I don't really like Christina as a person or a performer - just as a singer. Her songs are good and very addictive to listen too and her ballads are very well done.

But as an entertainer/performer, I've always preferred Britney. It's true that her voice is not as great as Christina but Britney's performances has always been entertaining for me.

I think that both of them are good for each other. No one can deny that there is definitely a rivalry between the two. And I think that this rivalry will definitely just push them both. To where is beyond me.

The thing I don't like about Christina is how two-faced she's been. I think she is bipolar. I've read interviews where she publicly thrashed Britney for the Madonna kissed. She did it, too. I think she's pissed that noone really paid as much attention to her as they did to Britney.

I do. Maybe it's because when she first came out she put the facade on that she was the girl next door who just happened to be able to sing.

Then Stripped comes out and she is just buck booty wild. :D :lol: She becomes a straight up bitch. I guess maybe you are saying that was the real her all along.

I do like Xtina's songs, but that attitude has got to go. ;) :)

Singles rankings can be very misleading. The charts rank singles based on airplay AND sales. A lot of people don't even put out singles anymore to be sold because they just don't sell well enough. Too many people can download that one song, or for a few bucks more just buy the entire CD.

Therefore, you really cant compare unless you know that each artist you listed did indeed have out a single to sell for each song listed. If so, then ignore my post. :)

The album "Britney, was Britneys 3rd album, Stripped is Christina's 2nd. So Britneys 1st album outsold Christina's and britneys 2nd album (oops i did it again) has sold a lot more than christina's 2nd album (Stripped). There is no point comparing "Britney" with "Stripped", they werent even released at the same time and have come at different stages in each singers careers.

So chirstina's 3rd album sales should be compared to Britneys album "Britney". So far, Britney's sales have declined with each album, but so to have Christina's, so at this point, Britney is ahead, as far as i see it.

I like them both though, they are extremely different however. :wavey:

being in australia i have no idea about who has got what or how many US #1's. but what does everyone think about jessica simpson? she certainly has the looks and she has a pretty good voice, the songs she sings dont really show her vocal talent i dont think, she needs to sing some ballads, actually all these girls do to prove who really is the best singer. stacie orrico has a great voice. and what about mandy moore? and this new girl brooke hogan?

she didn't put it on...her record label did. you could always tell Christina was the bad girl underneath all that blonde all american girl look.

why do you think it took her so long to come back? she was struggling with who she was and who other people wanted her to be.

she's real, and she can sing. i like her :)

yeah i'd agree with that, but i havent heard too much of jessica so not totally sure.

whats this new girl brooke hogan sound like? i heard a little clip of her singing over the net, it was a news thing, and to be honest she was absolutely no where near christina etc, she sounded kareoke to me. but she has a single out and i saw part of the clip but it was only a few seconds so im wondering what she sounded like. is she any good? apparently her goal is to be bigger than britney or at least that is what the media have put on her.

Jessica Simpson for some reason i thought was the smartest out of Brit, Xtina, Mandy and herself, but now after watching newleyweds for about few months, i have to say she is the dumbest...She is a great singer but Xtina has a better one, Have u ever watched the behind the music of Jessica Simpson, well Xtina sang before Jessica during the MMC tryouts and Jessica was Struck that she didn't have the BEST singing voice compare to Xtina

I think her songs DO show her singing ability, most of her songs are ballads because she can sing them very good and she likes singing ballads

Christina has the best ballads because one she wrote them herself and has a great voice, Jessica and Xtina both have good voices, but Jessica is emotion when she sings isn't the same as Xtina even though i think Jessica does a great job at it, Christina does it better

Mandy Moore probably will only sing ballads now only for her movie, i think she is smart to move on to movies more than trying to compete with Britney and Xtina because to compete with them she has got to show skin and she has always said she isn't doing it, she won't even wear a swimming suit in any of videos

As a Britney Fan, i knew Britney only had one number 1 song in the US and i think only 2 Top 10 (the other one being Stronger), maybe im wrong, Xtina just came out with #1s, i was surprise that that ALL of her singles on her first album made it there, hey #2 ain't bad either, but she almost took the record away from Mariah (sorry if my info is way off, just that i remember something about Mariah having 3-4 straight number 1 off her record) Britney's ballads are, well in my opinion are pretty good, From the bot.. Lucky (not reallie), Not a girl, not yet, and finally everytime, i loved them all, even though it didn't show her voice like Xtina and Jess does, those are still great songs and states that she can actually sing good...

Stacie Orrico is good, only heard one of her songs thought, no idea who brooke hogan is

Gowza
Jan 8th, 2004, 12:13 AM
thanx for addressing my post, brooke hogan is hulk hogans daughter. does jessica simpson really sing a lot of ballads? well i guess it all depends on what you call a ballad. like i wouldnt call britney's 'not a girl, not yet a woman' a ballad, but that's just me. jessica's first single from her first album wa a ballad but other than that i havent heard her sing any appart from one which was for a movie i think, but she's been kind of forgotten in australia since her first album, dont know why.

AnDyDog621
Jan 8th, 2004, 12:16 AM
Yea, well i do think Not a girl, not yet a woman is a ballad but for Jessica her 2nd album didn't have much but her third one in the skin does, her first two singles are pretty much ballads, well pop ballads

I weird thing was in our Hip-Hop station they play Christina Aguileras songs the first one I heard from them was What a Girl Wants and ever since they always play her songs. She's about the only "Pop" person that I heard played on that station coz mostly its R&B, Hip-Hop, and R lots of Rap.
