Randomness: Christina Aguilera’s ‘Bionic’ Will Sell…

Published: Wednesday 26th May 2010 by Sam

With the release of Christina Aguilera‘s new LP ‘Bionic’ drawing ever nearer (June 8th), all eyes will no doubt be on the record’s first week tally.

While such scrutiny is a given considering Christina’s position as a major recording artist, it’s undoubtedly heightened by the drama surrounding the project as of late (cancelled tour, flop single, and a leak a full two weeks prior to release). So with that said, we’re eager to hear what first week numbers you think Ms. Aguilera is on-course for…

    Hoping for a succesful run, because i don’t wanna see anyone who tried hard to fail … but i don’t think it will be.

  3. cflop May 26, 2010

    Her new single “WooHoo” was serviced to radios yesterday and got ZERO adds on pop radio, and only two adds on Rhythmic radio. Another flop. Im starting to think she’ll do 180-200K and then fall off the charts fast without a strong single on the radio

    XTINA’S ALBUM. QUESTION: WHICH WILL HAVE HIGHER NUMBERS – SOUNDSCAN OR LIMEWIRE?? MY BET IS ON LIMEWIRE, HAHA!!

  5. Wack May 26, 2010

  6. Socivol May 26, 2010

  9. Javier May 26, 2010

    She has a few more performances before the album comes out, she will sell at least 300,000 …trust me, this is Christina people.

  10. bbq May 26, 2010

    Surprisingly I think she’ll do just fine the first week. I think It’s the second week that’ll hurt her.

    The record is sure to push over 250,000 copies in the first week. And she will most definitely have the number one album here in the States.

    But who knows her crazy promo schedule is set to start the week the album is released. So that may fuel a bit more interest in the record pushing a strong second week as well. For the three weeks, it’s gonna be non-stop Xtina on our TV’s.

    Get your Bibles out!!!

    Did her song really not get any adds on pop?

  14. BEYDABESS (DA REAL ONE) May 26, 2010

    100 COPYS FURST WEEK

    DEN ABOWT 5 COPYS SECUND WEEK!!!

  15. Kev May 26, 2010

    The outcome of these unfortunate happenings has changed things slightly. It’s a little unfair under these circumstances, but I think Xtina will pull off 300,000 and that 300,000 will be well deserved (and really be a 450,000 debut week including the copies that have leaked). She has a strong fan base, the album is undeniably solid and after all the hype with a certain blonde it will benefit her. So many are choosing sides and if they’re siding with talent, Aguilera will have the big pay day she deserve!

  16. Xisme May 26, 2010

    i think 300,000 to be onist.. if were talking worldwide.. could be a little more say 350,000.. especially with the 2 big performances tonight American Idol and one on the 6th june VMA awards.. but she really needs to release a new single asap! or do a fantastic performance.. if she wants to show the world what bionic really is! p.s the album is amazing and ive bought 2 copies.. 1 deluxe and 1 standard.

  17. PRECIOUS YOURE A DUMMY B****! @VonniMediaMogul MediaBrunch.com May 26, 2010

    Xtina doesn’t have the industry hold she once had. I think she’ll do average. 150k? Naw…I think she’ll do a little better than that. She’s not off into Brandy, Letoya or Mariah’s level of current floppage lol

  18. Madea May 26, 2010

    The christina fan base is loyal. i think she will sell 300 k or more. And …take a note all Xtina haters. She doen’t need to climb the idiot hot 100 charts. Bionic is a hit on the internet… Billboard is for idiots!

  19. ryan May 26, 2010

    I think she is going to do around 200K, with at least a 50% drop, and shouldnt spend more than 4 weeks in the top 20. Everyone is entitled to an album flopping (Britney, Mariah, Diana Ross…all the greats have taken a flop in their career). Let’s just hope there isn’t another 4 year wait for another album.

  20. jammy May 26, 2010

    IF her album flops i think she will be more creative the next time around, and come back even stronger.. maybe all the controversy has finally taught her to stop being a b**** to other musicians, i mean pop stars… lol..

    I am a fan of hers, but i think she just needs a reality check. I predict her third album will save the album, like Irreplaceable did with BDAy, and y’all know B almost flopped with that album sort of!

  21. May 26, 2010

    think she’ll do well
    for a preorder her album is high on the charts

    the leak is a bad thing…hope she finds that asshole who put her cd on the net and sue him into jail

    her cd is really good and she deserves to be no. 1, such a great talent…

    and beydabess…guess you are mad cause you know aggie can sing beyonce under the table while she sleeps…

    i think maybe about 300 k in the us..first week

  22. jammy May 26, 2010

    third single*

  23. May 26, 2010

    @jammy

    cause bday was garbage except 2 or 3 songs…and irreplaceable was by far the best song on that album

  24. matt May 26, 2010

    @DANBOFFICIAL

    if xtina fans are loyal, how come not myself tonight flopped & woohoo is flopping as we speak.

    Plus her tour has been postponed ( COUGH: cancelled) because she needs more rehearsal time (COUGH: poor ticket sales)

    Good first week sales (Despite future promo to come) and then it will be all downhill from there, the facts are there and you cannot deny them!!

    and that is it

    PS: i was still checking for xtina despite her lack of originality lately, but i’ve had a listen to ‘bionic’ and it just doesn’t do it for me!!

  25. Sarah May 26, 2010

    What album did Britney flop with? If you people are referring to Blackout, that album is not even a flop. Get over yourselves. BO sold 3.1 million copies worldwide and had two hit singles, with Gimme More being a top 10 hit. Not to mention the fact that Blackout wasn’t even promoted, so I would hardly call BO a flop.

    Mariah’s last album was a flop, but not Brit’s Blackout. As for Christina, I heard Bionic in full and it is definitely a solid album. Glam, S** For Breakfast, Bionic, Elastic Love, I Am, NMT, Prima Donna and All I Need are all good songs. As a matter of fact, some of these songs are even hotter than NMT. Elastic Love in particular.

    I think she’ll pull in 250k-300k. Keep in mind that Christina is in it for the long run, and doesn’t give a s*** about hit songs and album sales…

  26. CC May 26, 2010

    It depends on how much promotion she gets…how many tv show appearances and award show performances etc.
    But i’m guessing she will get a hell alot of promo so she will probs sell about 220k first week

  27. Ken_E May 26, 2010

    Y’ALL ARE F****** STUPID BECAUSE ALICIA KEY’S “DOESN’T MEAN ANYTHING” FLOPPED ON THE CHARTS, THEN HER ALBUM GOT PUSHED BACK LIKE A WEEK OR TWO I THINK AND STILL MANAGED TO SELL 417k THE FIRST WEEK AND THE ALBUM WASN’T ALL THAT GREAT EITHER. SAME WITH MARY J. BLIGE, “THE ONE” FLOPPED AND HER ALBUM KEPT GETTING PUSHED BUT YET SHE SOLD OVER 300K HER FIRST WEEK! MARIAH CAREY’S LAST 2 ALBUMS WERE FLOPS. USHER HAD TO GO THROUGH A COUPLE OF SONGS AND PUSHBACKS BEFORE HIS ALBUM GOT RELEASED AND HE STILL MANAGED A #1 WITH OVER 300K SOLD THE FIRST WEEK.

  28. Alex May 26, 2010

    I’ll say 220k-270k

  29. Spunkypoop May 26, 2010

    I think she will do 150k to 200k ….My original prediction was 350k to 400k but due to the full leak….My numbers have to drop.

    However, her Itunes pre orders are already in and are major.

    I wish her the very best and it’s a Dope album, I downloaded it but I got my deluxe version on pre order.

    GO XTINA! GO XTINA!! GO XTINA!!!!

  30. Keke May 26, 2010

    @Ken_e:

    Alicia and Mary J have built in loyal fan bases that gurantee them an openning week of over 300k plus Alica’s previous album as did Mary’s openned with over 700k. Xtina has never openned with more than 375k. Mary and Alicia’s song were moderate hits on their core formats i.e r*b/hip-hop

    Xtina’s songs are hits no where and both ladies didn’t have negativity surrounding their releases or videos. mary and Alicia had their albums rank high on Itunes and Amazon prior to release. In fact Alicia had both her standard and deluxe album top 40 on Itunes pre-order.

    Xtina’s album fell of Itunes top 100 albums this morning as did NMT. Whoo Hoo is #83 and a cancelled tour.

    I say first week sales 225-250k if that and then steep declines. I doubt this album scans 800k when said and done.

  31. phil May 26, 2010

    I expect first week sales around the 300-350,000 mark with a considerable drop afterwards. However, the album sales will increase again when more successful singles are released. I’ve heard the whole album and there is plenty of single material!

  32. Anthony May 26, 2010

    Damn, Xtina flopping already. SMH! She has a powerhuse voice but I guess shes not a powerhouse superstar. Then again she never was.

  33. Young One May 26, 2010

    I’ll say between 150- 200k! She’s been a decent at best first week seller.

  34. ThatPankcakeMix May 26, 2010

    I predict 150-200k!

  35. PopCulturePrince May 26, 2010

    175K. The album is nothing special. I was rotting for her and i will buy it, but this is not something im emailing friends about.

  36. Christian May 26, 2010

    I’m predicting Christina will sell around 250-300k in her first week.

    SIDENOTE – I agree with Sarah as to where she doesn’t consider Britney’s ‘BlackOut” a flop because clearly it really isn’t. She hardly promoted the album at all. She only performed at the VMA’s, released 3 music videos and she had radio airplay.. She didn’t do any other live performances, no tour to support the album, no radio interviews, no talk shows, no late night talk shows, she wasn’t on ANY of the big magazines, etc And plus in the US alone “BlackOut” has sold around 900,000 copies. YES it’s her least succesfful album in comparsion to her others but it’s definitely not a flop. Sorry Ryan 🙂

  37. Last Boy on Earth May 26, 2010

    I dont like Christina very much but I downloaded the album. Let me say that there are very good songs, the ballads are awesome.

    One of the major problems is that in 18 songs, there isnt any that make a potential single to sell the album.

    Bionic (the song) could be in a Santigold album, I know she was the one producing the song but atleast she could change a bit from her songs, even the voice sounds a like. The same goes with Elastic Love, I dont know who produced it but it is very M.I.A. I mean, everyone on Christina team were saying that it would be a revolutionary album and futuristic but what I hear here are styles from not so known artists. People on her team where saying that the song “Glam” is the new “Vogue”, well, let me tell you that is one big insult for Vogue, since Vogue is an epic song and Glam is one of the worse songs in the album. The worse being definetely Not Myself Tonight. They said she was going to tone down a bit too but I still hear alot of screams (not that it bothers me, I love her voice).

    “Lift Me Up” “Desnudate” and “I Am” are the best songs on the album IMO.

    Overall, the album is good and I think it will sell just because it is Christina Aguilera, her name is enough to have big sells atleast in the first weeks.

  38. Last Boy on Earth May 26, 2010

    and btw, before starting to hate, it is my opinion

  39. h May 26, 2010

    How can a POP ACT with no hit single pull in over 300k? That’s like saying Britney can still 1.3 million in her first week. Christina is about as relevant as Ciara and Mariah hell at least both of them had top 10 singles, Christina still hasn’t got that and Not Myself Tonight is out of the top 100 on itunes and out of the top 40 on mainstream airplay and WooHoo is following in its shoes. It’s gonna flop… hard, I say about 110k. I don’t care if it’s ‘CHRISTINA’… we could have said the same thing for… it’s ‘MARIAH’

  40. Xt1N4 May 26, 2010

    I predict about 200,000 to 250,000 at best. I don’t see this album having any more hits, either. These days, you have to really bring it with the first single, or you’re done. At least when Janet flopped with Damita Jo and 20 YO she admitted the music was bad. Xtina is so full of herself, I can see her defending this half-baked clunker until her dying day.

  41. FUSION May 26, 2010

    185,000

  42. Robert May 26, 2010

    I dont think it will pull more than 200k and will QUICKLY decline afterwards and go on to be the LOWEST selling album of her career. The ballads are AMAZING but the rest is just ok some of it is complete TRASH and as a whole the project is really disorganized.

  43. RANDOM May 26, 2010

    i’m buying and when she tours i’m going.

  44. evening May 26, 2010

    150-200K

    @jammy

    HOW DID B’DAY FLOP. IT WAS A #1 ALBUM WITH ALMOST 600,000 IN THE FIRST WEEK 3 WORLDWIDE #1 HITS SOLD OVER 6 MILLION COPIES AND THE HIGHEST FIRST WEEK SALES OF 2006

  46. Blasian May 26, 2010

    This may not pull in Big first week Numbers it needs a hit and lets just face Not Myself Tonight wasn’t a hit in the STATES

  47. GangsterA May 26, 2010

    Random the same here

  48. geronimo deuces May 26, 2010

    can i get that link guys… i want to download it too.

    thanks

  49. blackboyjerry May 26, 2010

    Christina will FLOP SO HARD HA HA HA HA!!! LADY GAGA ROCKS!!!

  50. Waddie G. May 26, 2010

    Christina Aguilera’s “Bionic” can EASILY outsell Lady Gaga’s 2 albums
    IFF the right singles are release because “Not Myself Tonight” is weak
    compared to all the hot tracks in “Bionic.” The album mashes up the
    best of M.I.A., Gwen Stefani, Pink and Mariah Carey. I LOVE “Bionic!”
    But, Mrs. Bratman needs to get her inse…curities in check and quit trying
    to beef with the other divas.

  51. Waddie G. May 26, 2010

    I’m living for “Vanity” “Glam” “Prima Donna” “S** For Breakfast” “I Am” and “Elastic Love” on Christina Aguilera’s “Bionic” album.

  52. Dave May 26, 2010

    300k, & idk y you’re worried, you don’t like her. So stop worry about what she’ll sell. You ain’t buying it are you?

  53. Leepcd89 May 26, 2010

    Will Be A Hit…No Doubt…Xtina Rules!!!

  54. Jarry May 26, 2010

    Honestly, it will be her usual first week sales 300k – 330k

    Anyway Bionic is a great album I love it so Im buyin 🙂

  55. mo May 26, 2010

    150-200K

  56. BEYONCE VS. WORLD May 26, 2010

    I AM NOT A C.A. BUT I THINK IF SHE HAS GOOD MUSIC ON THE ALBUM IT WILL DO GOOD LOOK AT STRIPED THE BIGGEST SINGLE FROM THAT WAS BEATIFUL AND IT STILL DID VERY WELL

  57. BEYONCE VS. WORLD May 26, 2010

    I PREDICT 400 SOMETHING WATCH

  58. steven May 26, 2010

    Ugh why is everyone hating on xtina and saying her album won’t sell or its a flop you Y’all haven’t even heard it. I mean I know some of you have but now this is an album that is worth your money standard or delux I’m sorry 4 yrs is the makin was worth it I’m sorry this is how you make a dam album. Hhhhm vanity is the s*** how does xtina put it in the song who owns the throne and what’s does little max say in the szong you do mommy this b**** is back vanity is the shirts glam,all I need,lift me up,I hate boyz I mean every song is good. I’m sorry but this album is a slap in the face to all the haters who trying to bring her down ain’t gonna happen. Everyone go buy hella copies of bionic show ur support. This album will earn her grammys next year let me tell u.

  59. ~TeAM WeeZY~ May 26, 2010

    Not a Christina fan, but I think she has pretty solid fanbase. And I don’t think she’s going to add any new fans because of her lack of “hot single.”

    So I think she’ll sell between 200k-300k first week. Which is pretty good considering number one albums are selling around 150k.

  60. Chris May 26, 2010

    have no Idea, just know I wouldn’t pay for it, she needs to go back to the studio and rework it

  61. tommy May 26, 2010

    50k i’m not kidding

  62. ULISES May 26, 2010

    Had u done something more along the lines of “Lift Me Up”, “All I Need”, ,”U lost me”… then maybe I would have bought a copy. I really think that in this age in time where downloading music FREE from the internet is so easy, she will find it hard to sell. Sorry Christina. Wish ya the best though.

    http://WWW.ULISESWORLD.COM
    “Jungle”- s***, tribal, exotic summer anthem. Don’t click on the link! You’re not ready for it, or are u?

  63. Phatmat May 26, 2010

    It would be a shame if she didnt sell a ton of records, that just means that many people will be missing out on the awesome-ness that is this album. I mean its literally brilliant from the uptempos to the ballads to the messages she’s sending. I love how she can still do generic pop songs i.e elastic love and desnudate, and still give records with amazing feeling i.e I Am and U Lost Me. Unlike GAGA whose entire album is filled with nothing but generic records (not saying its a bad thing, but sumtimes i need feeling in an album)

    I WILL DEFINITELY BE BUYING MY COPY ON JUNE 8TH!!!

  64. Beysus May 26, 2010

    DEATH @ the baboons saying she’ll sell 300k. You mean overall, right? Her single flopped hard and she’ll have nothing out on radio when the album drops, that’s a recipe for a bomb. And ROFL @ people saying she’ll sell 300k anyway “because she’s Christina”. Her fans are really delusional when it comes to how the public cares about her. It’s beyond obvious no one’s checking for her anymore, accept it and move on.

  65. phil May 26, 2010

    I think Phatman has nailed it! There is a lot of variety in Bionic which is missing from the albums of other artists (such as Gaga)! I am buying it!

  66. iDrag4MCAndBey May 26, 2010

    Christina will be lucky if she can push 220,000 copies. Toni Braxton only pushed 54,000 with a much better record, but then again Christina is white, so it’s natural she would sell more.

    ONLY her fans will buy the s***. I’d give her no more than 200k, even then, it wont sell much after the first week.

  67. May 26, 2010

    what the f*** you’re talking? thats not a black/white thing
    usher sold a lot, beyonce sells

    fact is people arent into rnb these days…and tonis cd was a straight rnb cd and even if it has a few songs with more meaning (xtina’s has some, too)…its kind of boring…nice to listen, but aggie’s is way more fun

  68. h May 26, 2010

    what kind of “solid fan base” does she have, if her new single is already out of the top 100 in itunes? I mean Katy Perry went straight to #1 without any promo, why couldn’t Christina?

  69. TrizLuvsBee May 26, 2010

    I really hope the album doesn’t flop! The album is actually pretty good but not her best. The best songs are I Am, U Lost Me, Desnudate and Vanity. ‘Dirrty’ only peaked at No.48 on the Hot 100 and ‘Stripped’ sold over 330,000 copies copies in the first week and later sold over 11 million copies. Go and support Xtina on June 8th!

  70. Emmi3 May 26, 2010

    I’ll be honest… i have all ready heard the album by now..and well its not my cup of tea…though i am a big xtina fan..i appreciate the courage she has shown to do something different …but. maybe it needs 2 grow on me ..i dont know…..Still i will buy the album …even if not for the music…i will do it for my xtina collection 🙂 and a real fan is there with the artist when they go up and when they go down ..so am i …and all the drama bout her..most of the people hating on her …comparing her to gaga and stuff…come on i love gaga and i also love xtina…why isnt that an option..whats wrong with that…

  71. geronimo deuces May 26, 2010

    she just killed it on american idol…. amazing performance.

    go christina go

  72. geronimo deuces May 26, 2010

    i want the link guys…. i want to download it too

  73. ~AalexisR~ The Summer King (The Bahamas) May 26, 2010

    How many creative hats does she have again?

    Two? Oh yeah, she’ll sell around that.

  74. No Ma’am May 26, 2010

    I would base it on her Name, anticipation, & (loyal) Fan Base alone along with the quality of Music which is in my opinion, very Low.

    With all that being said I predict a Max 145K the 1st week, It will most likely Flop, sorry…

  75. No Ma’am May 26, 2010

    Let me re-phrase:

    I would base it on her Name, Anticipation, &. (loyal) Fan Base alone because if we look at the quality of Music alone which is very Low, It will undoubtedly Flop.

    With that being said I predict a Max 145K the 1st week, the odds arent really in her favor, It will most likely Flop, sorry…

    Sidenote: The only XXX-Tina song I like anyway is ‘HURT’, Her best song So I would never bother to listen to Bionic in full & most certainly wont be buying.

  76. Kyle May 26, 2010

    I don’t think she’ll do anything over 200K. I wish her the best but I just really don’t think she’s holding many peoples interest this time around.

  77. Xtina_wins_at_life May 26, 2010

    What will the numbers be? It doesn’t matter, she could sell only 1 single CD for all I care. Numbers and charts aren’t the kind of thing that I think about or check, ever.

    I will purchase the DELUXE version of BIONIC on June 8th, regardless of everything. BIONIC will get played a lot on my mp3 player.

    (Note : Christina is here to stay. She’ll always sing. You think it’s a joke, haters? LMAO)

  78. TheWise May 26, 2010

    “Bioflop” will open with 95k first week. She is very disrespectful and I don’t like her attitude. It’s about time we knock her down that high horse we put her on. Next >>>>>>>>>>>

  79. DIVAback May 26, 2010

    Diva Xtina’s vocal is amazing, touching!
    Her voice and sound touched deep inside of my memories

    Gaga lovers, you guys love gaga dance music and outfit, no fault, no offending, ok?
    Christina said gaga is great, ok?
    Christina and lady gaga are irrelevent
    Pls do your own gaga page, gaga thing.

    Just listen to your own gaga music, don’t annoy her,Ok? Xtina’s Bionic is really fun to listen, and touching. Some songs would be definately classic, I mean, after decades, people would still listen to.

    Christina got her voice and her own fans, and she got her big Asian (China, Japan, HongKong, singapore, taiwan, Tailand…..) fanbase too, at least 100 million people know about Christina Aguilera is great diva . Xtina’s songs are available in each karaokey house here. We just so enjoy the BIONIC. don’t bother us~~~
    tks!

  80. SunDee May 26, 2010

    I don’t give a damn about album sales! WTH..
    the real thing is She already SELL it to me!
    Love the Variety of BIONIC album…

    I BET!!! You Brit – Gaga fans also love the tracks inside it 😀
    it’s very coollllll! Like almost entire tracks is possibly a great singles
    (maybe 70-80% of it)… I can’t stop listening to “Vanity”!!!
    All the Ballads are awesome as ussual…
    I AM, ALL I NEED, YOU LOST ME & LIFT ME UP

    it’s a Quality MUSIC

  81. Gucci May 27, 2010

    300k a.k.a 300 times more than every artist you stan for on this blog Trentisha.

  82. SerinaJane May 28, 2010

    I Love Christina and I Pre- Ordered the Album on Amazon and Itunes I also ordered the fan edition lol. I really couldn’t care less for ME personally if she sells. But of course I know its better for her if she does good. SO i wish the best for her. I Enjoy her music and her presence every minute of my Life and I hope I can keep on doing so for a few more decades. Therefor she has my Support 🙂

    Haters stay mad cause it keeps getting better and keep talking about her – that is exactly how RELEVANT she is :))
    There is nothing like bad Press…..

    Wohoo

    I honestly can say I was never a really big fan a of Christina. I mean I liked some of her stuff just never crazy about her. However I have no problems with her. But it pisses me off that all the Christina fans consistently bash Gaga. Gaga worked her f****** ass off to get where she is. She is truly one of the most creative individuals in the music industry today, my personal favorite. Her lyrics have true deeper means. Bad Romance was all about loving someone so much that you want to learn about all there bad stuff. That is not your “generic” lyrics like some on here say. She is not just a musician she is a true multifaceted artist.

    that’s not what “bad romance” is about. it’s about having a romance with your best friend. hence the part where she says “i don’t want to be friends”. besides, do your research before you make any comments regarding a topic you’re commenting on. it shows your ignorance and lack of relevance.

    This album will definitely not flop. The leak will only aid sales, because this is not an immediate pop record. I hated NMT the first few times I heard it, but it has grown on me much like this entire album has continued to grow on me. The album takes multiple listens to be able to fully grasp. Not Myself Tonight is nowhere near the strongest single on the album. This isn’t the cookie-cutter pop that has dominated the charts in her absence. She didn’t run to Dr. Luke, Max Martin, etc. for a surefire hit. She’s taken a risk with this work, and it has definitely paid off. Christina has never really been a “singles” artist which is demonstrated in the fact that her albums are lengthy bodies of work to be appreciated. Christina cancelled her tour so she could do proper promo for this album, which will help sales. She gave an outstanding performance on American Idol, and will surely deliver on the night of the MTV Movie Awards as well. Unfortunately, the album will probably only enjoy one week at number one due to the fact that Drake’s album will be released the next week and Eminem and Miley’s the week after that. As far as numbers go I’ll project at 350-400k.

  86. Chris May 30, 2010

    I think she will sell 150k

  87. FUTURESTARdelux May 30, 2010

    probably 300k+ (US) and in at No1, As long as the future video’s etc are on form i don’t see why the album can’t do better than her last, it’s more friendly to the masses.
    Alicia Keys released “doesn’t mean anything” and slated it but then she dusted herself off and came back strong.

    BEYDABESS….hunny, check your facts ok? beyonce is far from being the queen. her last song was an epic fail it didnt even crack the top 50. her last number 1 was over a year ago with single ladies. and gaga? shes just a fad.
    and to gagamonster. christina fans never bash gaga. it is completely the other way around. in fact gaga fans bash EVERY other artist. and deeper meanings? i wanna take a ride on your disco stick, yeah thats super deep.

  89. Random J June 5, 2010

    Album sales are anybodies guess these days. But Christina’s always managed to pull good numbers in the past – so I guess we’ll see. She has a larger fan base than people think.

    In terms of where I stand? I think ‘Bionic’ is rubbish. It’s as much of a mess as Britney’s weaves. But it has just about enough decent songs that she can have a good singles run and have the album sell well over time. She definitely needs to consider dropping “Desnudate”.

  90. Gorkem June 8, 2010

    It won’t sell because there a lot bigger and hotter artists around.. It can debut at a high position if there’s no any other new release on the release-day, but will fall down fastly.. GaGa’s Alejandro will take all the piece.

  91. Philip June 9, 2010

    ARI, you have the best comment! I laughed so hard when you wrote “i wanna take a ride on your disco stick, yeah thats super deep.” Ahahahahha. PS: I have Bionic, and I like it!

  92. chris June 9, 2010

    FLOP… talk about a FLOP.. she can sing. but she over sings everything.. like she has to prove to everyone that she can sing.. we get it aguilera… no shut up. … this album will FLOP

  93. Tash June 9, 2010

    Lady gaga was just the substite for Christina on her vacation she needs to get off the screen with that ugly ass face making every ugly person thinking their hot ..,

  94. Jen June 10, 2010

    Bionic is number one in the Uk and number three on Itunes so I wouldn’t consider it a flop and her concert tickets were number two in the country so she didn’t cancel her tour because of low ticket sales. So stick that in your juice box and suck it!

  95. dotty46 June 10, 2010

    i’m a christina fan but i don’t give this cd much of a chance because of the singles falling so fast. maybe 200k in the first week. downhill after that. i hope i’m wrong! if christina got one drop of the hype the media gives to britney (if she breaks a nail they consider it newsworthy), stores wouldn’t be able to stock her cd fast enough. this won’t happen though because the media for some reason are ‘christina haters’. you barely see reports of her on ANY of the celebrity news shows even when she gives amazing performances on tv venues such as oprah, american idol and mtv movie awards…etc there are no comments.

    to explain to sarah may 26 why britney’s ‘blackout’ cd could be considered a flop is because it only sold 880k in the u s (not even platinum in u s sells). it did manage to sell 3.7ml worldwide. she may not have promoted that cd but the media promoted it for her. when michael jackson sold about 10ml copies (w/o promotion) of his ‘invincible’ cdworldwide it was called a flop. i guess the media defines a flop!

  96. james June 10, 2010

    uhhh comn its chirsitna aguilera dickwads….shell sell millions of records within time just like her previous albums…. shes been promoting her album with outstanding performances theres no way she would flop…the album is one of the best ive heard over the years by the way…. this posting is definitely from a xtina hater

  97. Cassandra June 10, 2010

    As far as the “hype” between the two artists…It was probably started by the “other party” as a media ploy to attract attention which it has been doing fairly well.But heck what do I know, Christina’s side could have started it. Ingenious marketing strategy; whose ever idea it was. And anyone who thinks gogo gaga has talent over Aguilera is obviously deaf. As far as album sales go, I BOUGHT my copy June 8th. Got straight out of bed, took a shower, and raced to get it. The album is actually quite amazing. I have to say this also, I’ve noticed CD racks shrinking in general. It’s quite depressing. People would rather download, whether legally or illegally, and sacrifice quality for simplicity. SO not cool. Shows who the true music lovers are. I mean people thought going from 8’s to CD’s was terrible…now what! lol just sickening isn’t it?
