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.

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.

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

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.

Compared to TSI, Lotus did quite ok in the US (Your Body reaching top 5 on iTunes + Lotus selling around 80k opening week). But it's still a flop considering Xtina is on a big TV show multiple times every week currently and still can't get a hit. TSI can't even be called a flop because there was nothing to suggest that it would do better than it did.

If Nelly had Xtina's promo, TSI would be selling quite well right now, because contrary to Lotus, it's actually a really good album.

Re: Christina Aguilera - Where to from here?

I think it's sad. The state of the music industry. It's like alot of the music now-a-days lacks alot of substnace, alot of meaning is lost. That's why I listen to music from the 50-80s. Good Music, artist had classic periods where they would release 3,4,5,6 consecutive HIGH QUALITY in a row.

Well it's been out for over two years .

Re: Christina Aguilera - Where to from here?

The funny thing is that Kesha's album is amazing and has been critically acclaimed as well. Every song could be a single, really.

Kesha may become the female Flo Rida. Her latest album sold less than 100K during the first week in the US even though the lead single reached number two in Hot 100 and number one in mainstream radio.
