christina aguilera lotus review First Week Sales Are In: Christina Aguileras Lotus Sold...

In perhaps her strangest launch campaign yet, Christina Aguilera‘s ‘Lotus’ has been the subject of ample debate as of late.

Though a stellar album, the lack of live performances to push it have raised many an eyebrow, as too have the lack of magazine covers, radio interviews and other promo vehicles. All factors which contribute to the project’s first week sales. Find out what they are after the jump..

According to the ever-reliable Hits Daily Double, ‘Lotus’ will open at #7 on the Billboard 200 with sales of…

73,408

There’s little spin that can take away from the fact that the figure represents the lowest debut numbers from Xtina’s solid-selling catalogue. Indeed, the figure is even trounced by the 110,000 opening of 2010’s criminally underrated ‘Bionic’ album.

Still, what the latter didn’t have was a hit – something ‘Lotus’ seems to be strutting towards with its second offering ‘Just A Fool (ft. Blake Shelton)’. For, having already shown its potential on iTunes upon initial release of the album, the song rocketed into the top 20 of the digital tally again last night following Christina and Blake’s live showing on The Voice. ‘Lotus’ climbed two spots to #14 too following the performance too.

While everyone loves a great comeback story, the reality is that it often takes time to rebuild a brand. Indeed, one needn’t look further than Aguilera’s rival and apt comparator Mariah Carey.

Like ‘Bionic’, 2001’s ‘Glitter’ was certified Triple Tin Foil, while 2002’s intended “comeback” ‘Charmbracelet’ didn’t fare much better. It wasn’t until 2005’s ‘Emancipation Of Mimi’ that Mariah’s commercial viability was restored.

Looking at Christina’s current predicament, we see a similar “slowly, but surely” climb. What we are sure of, though, is that she will have her “moment” again – be it this “era”, next, or somewhere down the line. Gifts like hers are too rare a find.

From our vantage point, it’s now down to Christina and her team to establish a successful “face” of the project, be it with successful singles, touring, steady album sales; or, if they’re up for the challenge, all of the above.

No more lengthy gaps between projects either. For, at her peak (which wasn’t actually that long ago), Xtina was cruising towards a brand of stardom that was ever-lasting. Just like Britney‘s and Beyonce‘s of the world. Yet breaks and knock-backs have thrown things off somewhat. She’s now tasked with getting back in the saddle and shutting down the naysayers – not just by lyric, but by action. We wish her the best of luck!

        @wrinkle flop Oh f*** off one thing you cannot deny Beyonce knows how to promote the s*** out of her stuff, only exception with the 4 era cos she found out she was pregnant and it still sold decently considering. The superbowl is just a tad of what to expect next year is gonna be Beyonces year U WILL DEAL.

        the superbowl does not sell music. Ask Madonna and Black eyes peas-. You need the public on your side, and Rihanna is now the IT BLACK girl, which means Beyonce is finished and you will have to gracefully accept that.

        NO DUH but it adds to major promotion. IDK about Madonna and the BEP but Beyonce has a big fan base that are waiting for this performance and her return and who DO go out and buy her album don’t tell me Beyonce hasn’t got the public on her side with 4 consequtive #1 albums in the US and still acheiveing NOT JUST ACROSS EUROPE. Do you know how dumb you sound using the term ‘it black girl’ Beyonce and Rihanna are different people with different acheivments, Beys return is clearly on your mind. Now have a seat.

        i really couldn’t care what a lot of people think about her anymore or how well she does. i was bullied badly at school and some of her lyrics/songs have helped me sooo much and i’m sure there are a lot of other people out there who feel the same as me! i think she has her guard up to the world but if you listen to some of her songs you can tell she is a nice sensitive person otherwise she wouldn’t be singing about some of the things she sings about. people who aren’t fans probably just think of dirrty, not myself tonight, your body etc and just think s*** etc but there is so much more to her than that! songs like “lift me up” “best of me” “i am” “keep singing my song” etc etc etc show how much depth she has. in my opinion i think she is one of the strongest (on the inside) artists/people in the world and her family and loyal fans who listen to her songs all know that and i think that’s what matters to christina now. money wise she’s sorted for life, i think she’s making her albums now for her/us :-) xxxxxxxx

        Beyonce core fanbase, are black americans. Whites – who make up most of this country and the buying power of albums, do not give a f*** about beyonce. It she never drops another record, whites will not care. Whites are the ones who allowed Rihanna to replace Beyonce as the most famous black singer. As for WW – bEYONCE WAS ALWAYS LOCAL.

        She already did. Her last record only sold one million. That is a disaster for someone known as Beyoncé. Her music became very repetitive lately. All of them must watch. I think Christina will have her time back exacly the same what happened with Mariah, Two records to warm up her coming back. Beyoncé will have to be very careful now as she is not doing well on sales.

      She was in Europe glastonbury which had a lot of whites and people still enjoyed the show. And it was most viewed that night by millions. Yes, Beyonce has her core audience: Gays and urban fans but she is known among whites also. That’s a no brainer. UK and Europe loves beyonce. She always slays the charts over there . Not to mention she’s went Diamond in Brazil more than once. So stfu

        Glasont’ always sells out. It has nothing to do with beyonce, that festival is part of UK DNA. Beyonce cannot sell out the O2 like Ri. In fact, her show for 2013 has sold out in the UK in 10 mins. Sorry, beyonce as a force is over. Rih owns Europe. Beyonce cannot even number 1 in Europe anymore. Brazil? Call me when Germany go nuts for beyonce, in the way they do Rih. Germany is the 3rd biggest market. Beyonce fans are gay black men and ghetto black girls.

        Its not old news when there are massive acts still touring there. The main reason everyone goes to the o2 is because its in a more local area in london (south london to be precise). You specifically said Beyonce doesn’t have the public support when she clearly does because her acheivments suggest otherwise, not just in the UK and Europe but worldwide. Going back to your original comment, you compared Beyonce to Christina Aguilara status wise which is a joke. When it comes down to it, you just want any negative excuse to bring up Beyonce and praise Rihanna. How sad.

      SWEETNESS, Beyonce is known all over the globe, and has sold out tours around the globe, last I recall Rihanna hasn’t. Beyonce’s considered ‘flop’ album 4 still outsold rihanna and pushed over 2 -3 million sales around the world with barely any promotion due to her pregnancy. She’s been working on her fifth album since the fall of 2011, she will come back and dominate, and with super bowl around the corner everyone will anticipate her return. If Beyonce was ‘local’ then why is she recognized globally? Last I check 4 was #1 in the first week of the world charts. In fact all her albums were #1 during it’s first couple of weeks on the world chart.

    Today’s HITS album sales chart has just closed and we’re already peering into our crystal ball for next week, folks, thanks to one-day sales reports from those retailers around the country who haven’t succumbed to tryptophan shock. Heading into holiday weekend, our retail experts ask for your indulgence, with a greater than usual margin of error due to cranberry consumption. Look for Def Jam/IDJ chanteuse Rihanna’s Unapologetic to sell between 240-260k, her biggest debut ever, which is probably good enough to make her #1 next week. Atlantic’s Kid Rock takes advantage of his availability at iTunes for the first time with an estimate of 160-180k for his new, pro-Mitt Romney album, Rebel Soul. 19/Interscope American Idol winner Phillip Phillips’ The World from the Side of the Moon will bow with between 140-160k. Atlantic/Rhino’s Led Zeppelin CD/DVD Celebration, recorded at their much-ballyhooed reunion show at London’s 02 Arena in 2007, should do in the 90-100k range. Geffen diva Keyshia Cole’s Woman to Woman is on target for 75-85k, while 19/RCA Idol album Kelly Clarkson’s greatest hits compilation looks good for 45-50k. RCA Latin star Pitbull’s Global Warning should do 35-40k, while Capitol stalwart Coldplay’s Live 2012 CD/DVD will sell in the 30-35k range. (11/20p)

    I think her being a judge on the voice might of affected promotional duties for Lotus. Since its a weekly show, but I think after this season is over she would be on the run for Lotus, shoot videos for “Just A Fool” and release “Let there Be Love” as third single would e good too! New Years Celebrations are coming up, hopefully she gets booked to perform, and also the Grammys, I have a feeling she’ll be performing this year. Later on for season 4 of the Voice, you know she might return to perform as a guest. Then te Billboard Music Awards, hopefully she performs. Idk, I won’t loose hope for Lotus! It’s a good album and little by little she’ll be back on top. Love you Xtinaaaaaa <3

        She promoted it on ‘the Voice’ last week with the performance of ‘Make the World Move.’ The AMA’s and this week’s ‘Voice.’ Where were the interviews on Ellen with performances, the performance on SNL and the radio interviews? Promo sucked and that’s the reason why. If the public wasn’t interested, ‘Just A Fool’ wouldn’t be selling this good. And no, Blake isn’t responsible because.. he’s never been on the iTunes chart for God’s sake!!

        Times have changed. The same amount of buzz that was on Mariah’s 5th album accounts for 2.000.000+ copies sold today. You know album sales have declined since then right? Not that I’m saying Christina’s success is the same as Mariah’s but NOBODY sells that much today. An average superstar sold 10 million in the 90’s, 6 million in 2002-06 (yet, Christina’s ‘Stripped’ sold 12 million, which would account for over 25 million back in the 90’s) and 3 million in 2012.

    Sam, gurl, you tried it. If Glitter (a soundtrack) was a “triple tin flop” then Bionic is the worlds biggest disaster. Glitter sold 1 million in the U.S. and 3.5 million in the world despite the constant media backlash, 9/11 date release (the day Glitter came out), her personal problems, and label problems. Charmbracelet sold 1 million in the U.S. and 4 million in the world (her fastest selling album) —– the same amount that Xtina’s B2B sold……lets also not forget that Mariah was going through family problems at this time (her father died), label problems, health problems, etc…..

    Emancipation was a success because the material was great as were the videos and promotion that era….Mariah fell from the public and media’s grace and she picked herself up ALL BY HERSELF. I have no idea why you are trying to write Bionic and Lotus as Glitter and Charmbracele 2.0 when in fact Mariah never flopped that hard. #DEAD at you calling Mariah Xtina’s rival….Mariah is her idol, her superior and her elder. Lol. Xtina’s rivals are/were Britney, J.S., N*sync, etc…Mariah’s “rivals” were Whitney, Celine, Madonna, Janet in terms of competitive eras and chart rivalry.

        1. Glitter was released on 9/11 == aka the day U.S.A (Pentagon, Twin towers, PA) was under terrorist attack. RIP stupid c***, you can’t read, nothing we didn’t know already. Clearly it was Sam that compared it in the article and I am setting him straight. Glitter sold more than Bionic the flop #deal even MOIA sold more in the U.S. than Bionic did in the world. #DEAL

        2. Charmbracelet sold 1 million (Soundscan + Billboard + RIAA certification) and 3.5-4 million in the world (World music charts + Universal Group certification). B2B sold 1 million in the world (Soundscan + Billboard + RIAA certification) and 3.5-4 million world wide (World Music charts). #DEAL

        3. LOL dead at Christina’s 3rd album!!!! Mariah was selling 10th album with Charmbracelet. Mariah’s third album sold diamond in the U.S. and 34 million around the world. Would you rather that I compare it to Daydream or Mariah Carey debut? lol

        4. You owned yourself when you said Bionic sold 1 million world wide. The fact still remains that Xtina sold 73k first week less than Kelly Rowland’s 1st week sales and Ciara’s and Mariah’s MOIA sold 168k. DEAL WITH IT.

        I get the parallels you’re stretching for dude; but Charmbraclet sold 241K in it’s first week (and Through the rain peaked at 81 on Billboard 100). Mariah’s albums have never been anywhere near Christina’s sales on they’re worst day. Worst Day: glitter 116K first week and that was a damn album glorifying the NY club scene released the day of the 9/11 attacks) …

        I’m a Christina fan too man. Bionic’s my fave album of her’s. but it’s numbers and facts. Christina’s promo has been wack !!

        Mariah again, sold 24K of her first Christmas Album, Merry Christmas and now nearly 19 years later it’s consider one of the few classic modern christmas albums, right there with Bing Crosby & Elvis and his White Christmas.

        I think this single with Blake is gonna be the ‘Beautiful’ of this album that will set it on fire. ‘Your Body’ was simply ‘Dirty’ of ‘Lotus’. Xtina loves to release a dance style thing first (always), then something with bigger appeal.

        Mariah sold 45K with her first Christmas album and 56K with her second Christmas album but they are HOLIDAY albums, not actual alums. And “Just a fool” will not be as successful as”Beautiful” regardless of what country star is on it. Anyways, she can still bounce back from this first week sales, but her stans need to learn to keep it cute and not try to come for Mimi like that again.

      You are ALL wrong. You can’t compare album sales of 2001 to album sales of 2012. Selllng 3 million TOTAL copies in 2001 was indeed a HUGE, GIGANTIC FLOP. In 2001 an average album sold 6 million copies. A huge hit sold 10+ million. Nowadays, a huge hit sells 5+million, while an okay selling album sells 1+million max. 2 million. But in 2001, selling 3 million albums was huge. Album sales are down 42% from 2000. If ‘Daydream’ came out in 2012, its total would be 10+million. ‘Glitter’ sales would be 250.000 WW sales.

    6. Find a topic that will make ppl relate to her (like actually discussing what went wrong with her marriage and apologizing for what she may have done wrong even if it was his fault. Then she should showcase her “emotional” journey to become a working single mom and how much she loves her son)

      as long as people like you keep perpetuating the claim that christina has a bad attitude she’s never going to win over the public. the media did a great job of searing that image into the public’s brain.

      she comes across a likable enough on ‘the voice’ but i think a lot of what is seen as a bad attitude is because she’s really a self conscious introvert and has never had the sparkling personality that made the press fall endlessly in love with britney spears (not even as a mousekateer).

      lotus and even bionic were every bit as good as what britney and others have been putting out but they didn’t have to overcome being beat down for everything they did the way christina was all through 2010 and 2011.

        I disagree with you. I remember the first time I heard Genie In A Bottle on the radio my first thought was “who is this girl? She can sing!” I fell in love with Christina. When she did At Last at the VH1 special in ’00 that sealed the deal for me…I was definitely a fan! I played Stripped to no end when it came out and drove to target to buy Back to Basics the day it came out. But since that album, I haven’t cared for the way Christina has presented herself to the public. She decided to sell s** instead of her talent. That “Not Myself Tonight” was completely distasteful and made me realize she was no longer the artist I fell in love with. The media had no influence over my perception of Christina…Christina herself took care of that.

      Of course I didn’t forget about “Dirrty”! I loved that song and the video as well. I was original, artistic and she wasn’t trying too hard. The song and vid were very fun and actually had a hook and melody. NMT was just a mess. However, I did like You Lost Me and Woohoo. Everything else was just trash.

      I honestly don’t know what you mean by the media tearing her down because Christina really hasn’t gotten that much media coverage over the years.

      Aside from the period running down her leg at Etta James’s funeral, the divorce, the drunken nights with her boyfriend and the weight gain what did the media make up that wasn’t true?

        unless they were reporting something negative they ignored her all together which creates the question of an artist’s relevancy (this is why when britney sneezes the media reports it).

        besides focusing on the drizzle running down her leg, her divorce, and lying about her being arrested for being drunk there was berating because she missed a line during the star spangled banner performance though the performance was great, ripped her for slipping on stage after her aretha franklin tribute even though her ovation was the longest and loudest, accused her of ripping off gaga when a lot of gaga look came from christina, labeled her a flop because for the first time her album failed, lied that her movie ‘burlesque’ was a flop although it’s made 3x it’s cost to produce. they keep the profit success a secret. mustn’t give the appearance of her accomplishing anything. one celeb mag claimed she was a useless judge on the voice and compared her to nicole schwinger stint on x factor (sp).

        the press could hardly do more to ruin this girl’s image. if you think this isn’t media tear down, you’re blowing smoke or living in another world.

      If she’d tone it down a bit, and bring back that soulful softness she used to have. She’d probably be more popular now. She really goes at it with the belting to the point where it straining.

      She used to use her power better. I mean, listening to her older stuff she had amazing control and she could have just continued singing exactly like that. And back then, we knew she could sing her ass off. There was never the need for her to just start up with this yelling stuff.

      She doesn’t use her head voice much anymore either. Which sucks.

      It’s like she lost her vocal ‘restraint’ or something. Sometimes, Christina, less is more.

      Love the new album though. Didn’t like Bionic.

    Sam you are certainly a big hypocrite first you said Bionic was a mess now its criminally underrated but I guess you gotta kiss Christina ass now since you or your staff went to her album listening party in the UK. Also please stop using Mimi as a spring board to justify when other females fall short there are plenty other female artists you can use as an example like your favorite Ms. Kelly who could only sell one single off her last album, and her album hit the skids when it hit the streets in every market. At least when Mimi flopped she was paid 50 million from a label to move on where as your fave just got dropped. As for Christina she needs to clean house and start over and change from the same freedom theme era after era.

    Everybody, this is beyond promotion. She could have sang “Your Body” on every show imaginable and it still would not have helped album sales.

    This is a very different time for music. Christina is now in the second generation of pop girls. The new generation are Rihanna, Katy, Ke$ha, and Taylor. This is simply the way the it is. THEY are going to do better than her and there is nothing anyone can do about it.

    Will X be able to make a comeback later in her career remains to be seen but “Lotus” will not do it.

    Look. I stan for Janet and she is a THIRD generation pop girl. This is how these things go.

    I personally don’t love “Lotus” but I still think that X has the album in her that will remind us of who she REALLY is regardless of sales.

      Lotus is ABSOLUTELY better than Femme Fatale but the mainstream has a completely different criteria for “greatness.”

      I’m a strange Britney fan. I think “Circus” is her best album so you know they don’t think I know s***. Unfortunately, Christina will never receive the favortism as Britney so we can forget that. The only thing we can hold out for is a Xtina album that TRULY comes from her.

        there’s worse things than breaking out paparazzi window but it is a sign of imbalance. she has done worse. like running over the foot of a photographer.

        you haven’t the slightest idea whether britney’s a good mother or not; nor do kids necessarily openly fear a bad mother. she still doesn’t have custody of them so there is some question as to her competency as a mother.

        britney may be a nice person but that’s no reason to keep hyping her career elevated to superstar status when she’s no longer a worthy performer and actually is not selling a huge amount of albums.

        christina was shy and introverted even as a child and peers bullied her because they were jealous of her singing ability.

        even now people are shady her. such as coughing loudly during her interviews (without attempting to stifle it) or referring to ‘the voice’ as her “having a little show”.

        she’s been treated so badly, i can’t image how she’s avoided a mental breakdown.

      Although Mariah Carey’s ‘Glitter’ sold 1 million in the U.S, it was at a time when 700 million albums were sold yearly. ‘Glitter’ was the biggest commercial failure seen in years. Had it come out today, it would’ve sold less than 200.000 copies WW. I’m not a hater, I’m just stating the facts.

      2001: 712 million TOTAL ALBUM SALES
      2012: 150 million TOTAL ALBUM SALES

      In 2002, Eminem’s ‘The Eminem Show’ was the best-seller WW, with global sales reaching 20 million copies. Little did we know that the next time an album would sell 20 million would be 2011 and that it would be Adele’s ’21.’ But there was much more buzz surrounding Adele’s album than Eminem’s mainly because back in 2002, if you were a big name, you sold 20 million albums. Prior to 2002, If you a big name, you sold close to or over 30 million (Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys, Eminem, Mariah Carey, Madonna, Janet Jackson). 2010′s best-selling female album was Rihanna’s ‘Loud,’ which sold… 5 million copies. You see where I’m getting at?

      If 2012′s album decline had taken place in 2001, then ‘Glitter”s 3 million WW would equal 200.000 copies. Mariah Carey’s ‘Glitter’ was a DISASTER commercial wise and even R&B singer Monica, who was the 78th best-selling artist of 2001, outsold ‘Glitter.’

      And I’m probably the biggest Mariah fan. So this is not hate, just stating the facts and irritated that people don’t use their brains.

      In 2002, Eminem’s ‘The Eminem Show’ was the best-seller WW, with global sales reaching 20 million copies. Little did we know that the next time an album would sell 20 million would be 2011 and that it would be Adele’s ’21.’ But there was much more buzz surrounding Adele’s album than Eminem’s mainly because back in 2002, if you were a big name, you sold 20 million albums. Prior to 2002, If you a big name, you sold close to or over 30 million (Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys, Eminem, Mariah Carey, Madonna, Janet Jackson). 2010′s best-selling female album was Rihanna’s ‘Loud,’ which sold… 5 million copies. You see where I’m getting at?

      If 2012′s album decline had taken place in 2001, then ‘Glitter”s 3 million WW would equal 200.000 copies. Mariah Carey’s ‘Glitter’ was a DISASTER commercial wise and even R&B singer Monica, who was the 78th best-selling artist of 2001, outsold ‘Glitter.’

      And I’m probably the biggest Mariah fan. So this is not hate, just stating the facts and irritated that people don’t use their brains.

      Btw. Mariah’s ‘Glitter’ came in her 11th year in the business. Christina’s failure came in… her 11th year in the business

    This is very sad, specially because she is considered Britney’s rival and the Legendary miss Spears has never fail so bad like Xtina, these numbers belongs to Ciara, Brandy and the likes, i still like “Lotus”, she needs to release “Let There Be love” now and “Blank Page” is beautiful, it’s like “You Lost Me” part 2, btw, that shade to Mariah was unnecessary, the sales of Mariah and Madonna’s flop are great for other artists, it’s just that for them are not enough, for example:

    Madonna flop albums:

    1- Erotica – US sales: 1,893,000 – Worldwide sales: 5,000,000
    2-Bedtime Stories – US sales: 2,312,000 – Wordlwide sales: 9,000.000
    3- American Life – US sales: 680,000 – Worldwide sales: 4,000,000
    4- Hard candy – US sales: 744,000 – Worldwide sales: 4,000,000
    5- MDNA – US sales: 512,000 – Worldwide sales: 1,600,000

    Glitter sold over Gold status and produced the #2 single “LoverBoy” which was also the best selling single of that year

    Charmbracelet sold over Platinum status and produced the #1 dance hit “throught the rain”

    How does Bionic and Lotus flop failure even compete with that? both of those albums combine wont sell what Glitter did

    You guys really hate on Mariah, but in reality Mariahs flops are that bad, its just Mariah set the standard sooo high its even impossible for her to match it.. Christina never set the bar so she has no sales or chart standard..

    and btw yes taking a couple years off may or may not have helped Mariah with “MiMi” but lets be real, Christina wont ever sell or have singles do what that did..

    MimI sold over 5 million in 2005 in the US . We Belong Together was #1 for 14 weeks .. Dont forget about us #1, Shake it off #2, Its Like that #16 .. all of those singles reaching #1 on the dance charts.. I can go on but Mariah broke sooo many records that era it would take to long to write..

        you know many fans don’t give a crap about singing ability and voice flaws. if they did, there’d be a hell of a lot more artists flopping.

        although she still has great tone in some ranges her voice has declined somewhat. singer’s voices naturally decline with age and if her style is contributing you would think she would want to turn it around if possible. a good voice “is a
        terrible thing to waste.”

        but voice aside, i believe no press (making her appear irrelevant) and then consistant bad press is more to blame than anything.

      Yes, voice declines with age. At like age 60-70, not at age 30. Unless there’s some other issue like drugs (Whitney) or medical problems such as nodules (Mariah). In Christina’s case it has decline due to complete lack of singing technique. Even Mariah and Whitney as they entered their 30’s were in better vocal shape Christina is in now. The human voice, if taken care of, doesn’t hit its peak till the mid 30’s for medium size voices and mid 40’s for large voices.

    Comparing this to sales even last year and two years ago is bad. Sales are down for everyone. Look for Usher or Chris Brown, their albums also sold badly, but you know, they don’t have competiton on week when they was debuting. Over 70k in this year is a good number, look for other numbers, like nelly furtado or look for some weeks on billboard, this year there was weeks when number one album has like 30-40k sold. And Adele with number 20-30k was still in TOP 10. So stop saying it’s flop, it not a succes but it isn’t bad in those days.

    The Voice is not PROMO!!! Her team completely mishandled the project all together. It’s sad too. We were all rooting for Xtina. Her 3 biggest failures:

    1. Wrong choice for Lead Single

    Your Body was a good song, but it wasn’t great as a lead single. Classic Pop for Xtina. However, it was not the song to get Xtina the new fanbase she needed. She’s been gone too long, so new demographics have missed out on her potential. They only relate her to “that judge” on The Voice and not a club banging hit singer. I grew up with her, and I’ve honestly forgotten about her potential (see Turn to You, Beautiful, Candyman). The right song would have garnered her new fans and rekindled flames with old ones.

    2. Absence of live performances

    Until this day, Xtina still has done few live performances. This is your opportunity to show audiences that you have returned! Not many Late Night TV shows. No TodayShow. No SNL. She could have at least done a Promo Concert. The minute Rihanna came out with Diamonds, you know her team booked SNL and the 777 concerts. She has only performed on The Voice. How do you expect to reach multiple fanbases? Not everyone watches The Voice even with its high ratings. And when she did perform live, it was a little too late….such as the AMAs. People aren’t checking for her now. They are more interested in the other competition (ie Nicki, Kelly Clarkson, Ke$ha).

    3. No creative PR
    I saw her on like 1 magazine. She did a few tweets. There was much originality she could have used to play up Lotus! It’s such a creative project! She did no interactive projects with her fans like RIhanna does on Twitter/Facebook/Website. She used her “7th” album as a segway into the Promo Concert and the project itself. All Xtina did was release a few still shots of “Your Body.” She hasn’t done any big interviews to date either!!!!

    I know you’re grasping for straws, Samantha, but even Glitter and CB performed better than Lotus and Bionic. Mariah never had a studio album sell under 100k, either.

    Awww, Christina it’s okay girl. I still love you and I think your album is great so you really have nothing to be ashamed of. I really don’t think she cares about album sales anyway because the promo for “Lotus” wasn’t what it should have been.

    That being said I don’t think it’s about the sales, especially first week ones. I think that the album can sprout legs and surprise people with the right singles. I know that JAF is single #2 and already is popular :)

    Keep doing your thing girl, I know you have it in you and I hope that you continue to strengthen that beautiful voice although I’m indifferent about her technique at this point.

    Keep rising up!

    This has nothing to do with Mariah though. And besides, both Glitter and Charmbracelet have sold more than Bionic AND Lotus COMBINED. Stay pressed Sam

      although Mariah Carey’s ‘Glitter’ sold 1 million in the U.S, it was at a time when 700 million albums were sold yearly. ‘Glitter’ was the biggest commercial failure seen in years. Had it come out today, it would’ve sold less than 200.000 copies WW. I’m not a hater, I’m just stating the facts.

      In 2002, Eminem’s ‘The Eminem Show’ was the best-seller WW, with global sales reaching 20 million copies. Little did we know that the next time an album would sell 20 million would be 2011 and that it would be Adele’s ’21.’ But there was much more buzz surrounding Adele’s album than Eminem’s mainly because back in 2002, if you were a big name, you sold 20 million albums. Prior to 2002, If you a big name, you sold close to or over 30 million (Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys, Eminem, Mariah Carey, Madonna, Janet Jackson). 2010′s best-selling female album was Rihanna’s ‘Loud,’ which sold… 5 million copies. You get my point?

      jlo’s record company hasn’t dropped her and she’s had more flops than christina.

    Let me give you the exact (shocking) details:

    Note: these are U.S. sales.

    Last year was the first time album sales registered an increase since 2004, and it was a small one at just 1%. Sales of digital songs, meanwhile, ended 2011 up more than 8%, a trend that has continued into this year.

    Overall, 150.46 million albums have been sold in 2012. Compare 150.46 million TOTAL album sales to 2002’s rounded-off 649.5 million, compared with 712 million in 2001, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

    2001: 712 million sold albums
    2002: 649.5 million sold albums
    2012: 150.46 million sold albums

    If that isn’t shocking enough, here I compared the 2002 best-seller’s list to 2012 best-seller’s list. (Note: Due to Christina Aguilera’s ‘Stripped’ being released at the end of 2002, the album is counted as the best-selling female album of 2003, not 02)

    2002 TOP TEN SELLING ALBUMS

    1. Eminem Show / Eminem 7,420,840
    2. Nellyville / Nelly 4,757,876
    3. Let Go / Avril Lavigne 3,858,398
    4. Home / Dixie Chicks 3,430,694
    5. 8 Mile / Soundtrack 3,185,537
    6. Missundaztood / Pink 3,049,865
    7. Ashanti / Ashanti 3,049,516
    8. Drive / Alan Jackson 2,998,114
    9. O Brother Where Art Thou? / Soundtrack 2,704,299
    10. Up / Shania Twain 2,646,107

    2011 TOP TEN SELLING ALBUMS

    1. 21 / Adele ~ 5,823,628
    2. Christmas / Michael Bublé ~ 2,452,140
    3. Born This Way / Lady Gaga ~ 2,100,885
    4. Tha Carter IV / Lil’ Wayne ~ 1,916,909
    5. My Kinda Party / Jason Aldean ~ 1,575,681
    6. Sigh No More / Mumford & Sons ~ 1,419,952
    7. Take Care / Drake ~ 1,246,774
    8. Under the Mistletoe / Justin Bieber ~ 1,245,074
    9. Watch the Throne / Jay-Z and Kanye West ~ 1,231,676
    10. Own the Night / Lady Antebellum ~ 1,203,640

    As you can see, No. 10 in 2002 sold more than No. 2 in 2012.

    Meanwhile, singles’ sales are up around a whooping 74% since 2001.

    What I’m trying to tell you is that although Mariah Carey’s ‘Glitter’ sold 1 million in the U.S, it was at a time when 700 million albums were sold yearly. ‘Glitter’ was the biggest commercial failure seen in years. Had it come out today, it would’ve sold less than 200.000 copies WW. I’m not a hater, I’m just stating the facts.

You see where my point?

Secondly that 4 album was concidered a flop to many b**** couldn’t even get a hit but she’s the queen. Okay! And thirdly that b**** know when it’s time to sit down like now. Rihanna been killing this b**** for years hits after hits, she’s not the best and wayyy overrated. That’s why they gave her that super bowl performance because they know this b**** time is running out. Remember, you don’t stay on top forever.

    this is so sad for christina. i feel really bad for her especially the way she was brought down. the hateful media is a lot to blame for surrounding her with a shield of negativity.

    until now, tgj even shaded her.

    I’m wondering why there was NO promotion for this album? Not one single live performance prior to it’s release. Thats the only way to promote awareness for your album.

      yeah! this is pretty messed up. makes no sense. if they thought her exposure on the voice would do the work, they were def wrong.

      as the most hated girl in music she needs all the promo she can get. that means putting on good performances.
