It’s official: Christina Aguilera’s ‘Bionic’ has bombed. According to Hits Daily Double, the album has only managed to sell an embarrassing 111, 838 units. This marks the lowest 1st week sales in the history of Aguilera’s career.
So that’s the way the cookie crumbles. It seems that the industry has truly left Aguilera behind. With a flop single and a poor-selling album, there is no question that people just aren’t interested in what she has to offer anymore. It’s a shame though because ‘Bionic’ is truly a solid effort. Bye.
There’s always Vegas…
OMG!!!only 111 838 units!O_o
i can’t believe it!all the promotion she did was useless!
it’s just sad.
WOW, even after a four year break that’s the comeback…
I don’t know how people can be happy about the bad things that happen to others, I think that is what you do when you are full of hate and negativty inside and no, I’m not even a Christina Aguilera fan
THAT S*** FLOPPED LIKE A SET OF SAGGY TITTIES.
COME OUT, COME OUT, WHERE EVER YOU ARE CRUSTINA STANS!
IT IS TIME TO HAVE FUN!
I TOLD YOU SO.
shame, theres no excuse cause she did so much promo, performing at all the award shows, tv shows, oprah, she had Fuse concert specials, she was all over my tv with promo and still did that smh
I’m shocked……I thought she would atleast sel 200k…..all these main stream artists flopping. Music is in a sad state. People don’t buy albums like they used to smh
You know despite the sad numbers, I think she should keep her head high and keep doing what she’s been doing. At the very best, satisfy the loyal fans she does have out there, because Bionic is a good album. She’ll find that best seller again one day, maybe not now, but as long as she continues to do music that makes her happy and reinvent herself in different ways, then at least she’s trying.
GAGA WRONG FOR THAT
The industry is s*** anyway. At least she hit 100,000. I don’t see the point in announcing it as a flop… but ok
Blackout sold more in its FIRST DAY then this b**** did in her first week!!!!!!
Omg..no more calling Janet/Mariah a flop.
Britney vs Christina?? Lol
Madonna vs Cyndi?? Lol
Bye Floptina <3.
TRENT your such a looser!!! carma is a b**** man and its going to come bite you right on your ass watch! but i mean not the best #s but not the worst ether and its only first week so plus know a days no one is selling first week anywise so STOP HATING TRENT
I loved her first album and dirrty era but Im not feelin it either just like her previous back to basics album.. I want dirrrty genie in the bottle christina lol :))
thats such b******* … she’s still no.1 … in the us and the uk … and you say it bombs? Erghh maybe its got to do with the fact nobodies buys music.. anymore …. so it makes sense she has the worst sales of her career … but yet she is still no.1.
your the worst thing that happened to this blog trent … you really areee
TRENT FORGOT ABOUT THE ULTIMATE FLOP – FLOPMARIAH – “MEMOIRS OF A FAT ANGEL”. WHAT, IT TOOK LIKE 6YRS FOR THAT S*** TO HIT GOLD RIAA. TOTAL F****** JOKE!!
i’m pretty surprised. given all the promos she’s had, i thought she could pull 200k.
that “bye” is unwarranted, though. seriously?
her album is AMAZING…and i love her no matter what
Pop music has an expiration date for all artist and its usually 10 years. Britney better be paying attention because she is next!
SO SAD!!!!!!!!! Maybe one day she will catch up to the staggering sales of the critically praised, grammy award winning album ‘Graffiti’ featuring 6 top ten hits with over 15 million sold worldwide, a sold out European stadium, crushing hits competitors in the states. GO CHRIS!!!!!!!!!!!!
OH MY GOD THIS IS A SHAME
She’s not no.1 in the US, don’t lie, and even in the UK it’s her lowest first week sales ever.
LOL @ Go Breezy, riiiiight
SO!!!! CHRISTINA IS STILL BETTER THAN BEYONCE WACK ASS
All I know is Christina has longevity. With the current state of pop music stars, so many others are here today, yet they’ll be blasted into OBLIVION. The album is really solid IMO. Unfortunately, she released it at a time when hardly anyone sells great their first week, and it’s only the first week though. So in months time, she may be gold or platinum. So sad she has soooo many doubters and haters. Oh well, the most talented are ALWAYS the most feared and hated on.
Do you wanna talk about Mariah’s fourth album? It was a little thing called Daydream, debuted at no.1 first week, sold 30 million, one of the best selling albums of all time, contains the longest no.1 in history ‘One Sweet Day’, I could go on…
SHE CAN BLAME THIS ON 3 THINGS:
2.HER FOUR YEAR BREAK
3.THE FACT THAT SHE’S BEEN DOING ALL TYPES OF DESPERATE S*** LATELY
First week album sales alone determine an albums’ status as a success or failure? Really?
i have a feeling @gobreezy is NOT really a CB fan
Yeah, people keep hating on Mariah, at least she got a top 10 single and sold more than 111k. Stop hating just because she’s fat!!!
And that comment about Britney being next? Being next for what? Her last album sold 500k first week out and her last single debut at #1. Britney’s had her flop… even which sold more than this in its first day ¬_¬
Bionic is an awesome album too bad it flopped tho
HAHAHAH, Floptina Haguilera FLOPS again! Mariah went gold within 3 months…i cant say the same for xtina…No one gives a f*** about her anymore. Gaga, Beyonce, Mariah, Usher, & Justin Bieber RUN This S***. #WhoMadd?! #YouMadd. #StayDaFuckMad Pressed ass FLOPTINA Stans
🙁 OH WELL WHEN SHE RELEASES MORE SINGLES PEOPLE WILL TAKE MORE INTEREST. I THINK SHE SHOULD HAVE RELEASED TWO SINGLES BEFORE THE ALBUM DROPPED TO GIVE PEOPLE MORE OF A TATSE WHAT WAS ON BIONIC. AND TRENT U ARE A HATER I BET YOU COULDN’T WAIT TO POST THIS
CHECK OUT MY NEW ENTERTAINMENT SITE >>> http://WWW.FRESHURBANENT.CO.UK
well shes still gonna be doing promo, so maybe it will do better later on, first week sales dont determine the success of the album alot of times
my, my. Congratulations Trent … for the most ridiculous article ever. This is clearly disrespectful. ThatGrape Juice is such a bit disappointment these days.
Besides, since when quantity is a synonym of quality
she did around the same numbers as Mariah’s last cd
What a load of rubbish you sprout, Christina is fantastic and very versatile. Britney sounds like a ton of sugar, Mariah is a warbling harlot and Christina is THE VOICE. Just wait for the film BURLESQUE ……… a sure fire hit!
You are such a delusional lamb, Sam please fire this loser!!
I love how Trent said bye at the end. Classic!
Things probably would have been different if a different song was released as the first single…and someone above said she performed at all the award shows, ummm only award show she performed at was the MTV Movie Awards
haha, “trent” IS this how you get people to read your writting, my using Christinas name? is SHOWS how irrelavent she is considering you cant do anything else but write about HER. FYI she is #1 in UK, #1 in dance charts * TRY i know your limited in your abilitie* but try to write about that! I FEEL sorry for you, where would you be? how would you make a dollar with out CHRISTINa giving you something to write about. AND lastely ( selling 100,000 coppies in a week = more money then YOU will see in a lifetime SO DONT hate we know your jelous BUT DONT HATE hahahahhahaha
@CHRISTINA’s THE BEST
…but this post is about the sales of her album… we all know she can sing but she’s a flop… that’s the point.
I’m totally with you mate!
@TrentGrapeJuice – I think you secretly love Aguilera so much, it conflicts with your love for Mariah. And as a “lamb”, you wouldn’t wanna p*ss MC off, no? Scared-of-the-diva-itis!!
@ChristinaAguilera Girl, this album is solid (Even Tinie Tempah, one of the biggest upcoming UK acts around knows it!!). Rock on!
She’ll bounce back. This album is too good for it to end like this.
@TRENT : YOU ARE MENTALLY RETARDED!!!!!!!!
Trent you better watch your mouth before Sam has to check you again. One flop, so what, doesn’t necessarily mean “the industry has left her behind”. I think everyone is entitled to one flop, I don’y really like Christina but you’re doing way too much, Trent.
HAHA FLOPTINA IS AN EPIC FAIL
For all u haters who think she’s a flop or anyone else for that matter are idiots. All u are just b****** cause u get off others peoples bad news I don’t see this as a flop either come on now look at the other 2 albums in fist and second didn’t sell that well either come on. You think xtina cares if the album came in last no cause she isn t in the music industryb for number 1 albums or songs.
“Bye” – yeah as if album sales are going to somehow conceal her talent. In ten years time, a hundred years time, people will still be listening to Christina Aguilers: – she is the most talented of all the popstars in the public eye today.
oh please. they are just numbers. catty ass post…where’s sam?! yeah its a flop, but its about the work behind the album. the influences behind the album (mia, sia, santigold, le tigre, etc) their numbers would be considered flops. so whatever…its just a shame cus piece of s*** music like ke$ha and rihanna are seemingly doing better. bionic just isnt music meant for the masses. “When you talk all I hear is
Wah, wah, wah, wah, wah, wah, wah, wah
Wah, wah, wah, wah, wah”
Bionic is Christina’s 4th album. Daydream was Mariah’s 4th album and the album sold over 25 million WW and garnered 3 #1 singles with OSD being the biggest BB chart topper ever with 16 weeks at number 1.
You people want to tease Mariah because Memoirs tanked but Mariah has been in the music biz for 20 years, earned the utmost respect as an singer and songwriter thus no longer having anything to prove. Mariah can retire today and would be relevant thus selling more albums. Plus, she has 18 #1 BB Hot 100 singles and is very close to surpassing the Beatles with the most US #1 hits. With over 160 million albums sold, Mariah shits all over Christina’s career.
Memoirs flopped? Boo-hoo. At this point, a flop for Mariah isn’t s***. After all, Memoirs is her 12th studio album and it actually doesn’t hurt Mariah to have one studio flop out of her amazing 20 year catalog of music.
However, this is a really bad look for Christina because Bionic is only her 4th studio album and she’s bombing badly like this??? And after a 4 year hiatus?? You know why she’s bombing like this? Because the general public doesn’t give a f***. Musically, Christina is on the wrong page and the general public isn’t looking for a powerhouse singer gone Gaga/Spears. Christina needs to stay in her lane musically because although Bionic is a solid effort, it is just not CHRISTINA AGUILERA.
Christina needs to stop trying to be something she isn’t. She is not Britney, Madonna and GaGa so why is she trying to desperately be in their lane? Christina, you are a powerhouse vocalist. The general public isn’t interested in hearing synthesized & autotuned vocals coming from you.
And no…Trent has not forgotten about Memoirs flopping but he is aware that Mariah’s career is 10x that of Christina’s. Plus, at least Memoirs did have one hit song which was Obsessed.
Also, Britney never flopped with an album so you people need to stop telling that damn lie.
At this point i think the industry will have to adjust its expectations & standards for success…
There was a time when artist were selling 1,000,000 in the first day.
what was the last huge opening week? half that..1/4…?
also i love xtina but like rihanna she is trying to hard, just sing honey- the voice is on your side!!!!
ALL THESE PISSED OFF FUKTINA FANS WAS THE SAME ONES WHEN RATED R CAME OUT THEY WANTED TO CALL IT A FLOP NOW THE TABLE HAVE TURNED SO U AREN’T FOCUSING ON NUMBERS NOW THAT THE TABLE HAVE QUICKLY TURNT ITS SUPPOSED TO BE A SECRET IT GOOD TRENT POSTED THIS S*** CAUSE ALL U B****** WAS ON MARIAH’S D*** WHEN SHE FLOP NOW CALL IT WHAT IT IS SHE IS A FLOP NOW UNTIL SHE PROVE NOT TO BE A FLOP PEREZ IS GOING TO EAT THIS UP WITH HIS FAT ASS
make sure u make a special post when kelly flops.
i stan for no one but i do notice that u guys have out out for certain celebs but kelly gets a post everyday like shes really that hot.
i am just going to copy paste what i wrote on toyas world.sorry
i am going to say that a lot of it has to do with the fact that regardless of not having a hit on the radio,which is instrumental for good sales,she doesn’t really have audience,as she is constantly changes the direction of her music.
there are not so many people who love diversity on albums.
people would rather stay in a box.
and can u imagine people who liked You Lost Me,for instance,adult audience to buy the album,after they hear Not Myslef Tonight on Regis & Kelly morning after.
Bad promotion strategy – there was no target audience,and of course huge break,loosing fans in process and no single
AND TO ADD TO ALL OF THIS ( RELEASING ALBUM IN JUNE!!!!!-kids are studying then?!?!?)
The only people who bought this are her die hard fans!
this is what happens when young pop stars take a long break, why do you think Britney Beyoncé Rihanna and Lady Gaga never go on a break? In these days, if you go out, you go out forever and it is very hard to come back
@Last Boy on Earth. Preach!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
the sad part is that people let bloggers influence them. this site has been draggin this girl for a while and I am not a fan but I know the girl can SING. I use to think they hated on rihanna because she does not have the best voice, but I think they have a clear agenda. if u are not ,gaga, Mariah, Kelly, a keys or Chris brown they will drag the s*** out of u. they are on the fence with bey because they know other than talking about her lace fronts they do not have a chance. artist beware, if these two people who run this site have decided that u should no longer be relevant they will try their best to tear u down. When their favs flop they will make excuses. and so many people fall for the oakey doke. I pray that she comes out on top.
but there is always a positive way to look at it
rihanna’s rated r turned out to be major success even though,after major promotion and BIG NUMBERS on radio,she debuted at 4 and didn’t have expected big numbers,star of her caliber should have. (and that was in november,when albums actually do sell)
Big difference here is her labels acts.Rihannas team immediately released Hard after lukewarm response to Russian Rulette,while Christinas are doing nothing,month after Not Myself Tonight disappeared from top 40 !!!
That single isnt even listed on all access as current single …
so i am thinking her label gave up on project in which case BIGGER THE FLOP,BIGGER THE COMEBACK is going to be … 🙂
@RAYDEEOHCITY NO THEY AIN’T GONE POST THAT BUT WHEN SHE FLOP AM GOING TO POST IT ON ALL OF THE POST BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW KELLY WILL FLOP LETS KEEP IT REAL COMMANDER IS A HOT SONG BUT HER DUMB ASS DIDN’T RELEASE IT IN THE US THOSE OTHER TWO SINGLES WILL FLOP FAST AND HARD
please. album sales dont mean anything anymore. ESPECIALLY first week sales. people are just downloading 90% more for free these days. Aguilera just had bad luck cuz her album leaked so early. This b**** will still make money from touring.
Dryyy even Monica sold more : / http://thatgrapejuice.net/2010/03/monicas-still-standing-debuts-2-183766-copies-sold/
It is a shame considering Bionic goes hard. I’ve been listening to it nonstop. Christina is such a versatile artist. She is never stuck in a box, and I really love that about her. Listeners can always expect something new.
NOOOOO BUT I SAW THIS HAPPENING. AT LEAST SHE WILL BE #3 ON THE CHARTS. I HONESTLY DON’T THINK ITS THAT BAD. SHE CAN RECOVER FROM THIS BUT ITS GONNA TAKE A LOT OF WORK AND DEDICATION. IF SHE WANT HER SPOT SHE GONNA HAVE TO WORK FOR IT.
I think that it’s due to an unofficial ban on Xtina with radio! I wish the fans were able to listen to songs that we request. That all went out the window and now the brain washing and programming at radio dictates what becomes a hit. Xtina’s album wasn’t getting promotion at the start of this project because of this beef. Bionic is a quality album and would have been sucessful in 2008. Now that things have changed(the industry as well as a few other things) Xtina is no longer able to benefit from having a solid project the way she used to. When radio stop fading these artist out and playing their old hits and intentionally neglecting to play their newer material , we will have some justice! I don’t think that Xtina was losing her fanbase, I just think it’s design for her to have a hard time. I still respect real artist and 2 to 3 years from now things may return back to normal. That’s all I going to waste time going in to!
THE AUTHOR OF GRAPEJUICE.COM IS VERY FUNNY, BECAUSE I SEE NOWHERE ON THE WEB THAT SHOW’S HOW MANY RECORDS CHRISTINA’S-BIONIC HAS SOLD………… SO WHERE ARE YOU GETTING YOUR INFORMATION FROM………CAN WE GET THE WEBSITE’S URL SO WE CAN SEE FOR OUR OWN EYES BECAUSE I DON’T BELIEVE THIS FORUM
I wouldn’t consider 111k a flop simply because of where the industry is. If she would have sold below 100k then I would have considered it a flop. Its for artists to take breaks and stuff but no longer than 2 years.
OH MY GOD!
Are you being serious?
Bionic is a Number 1 album in the UK, it may not be her most succesful album to date but it certainly didn’t bomb. RCA should take all responsibilty for this, there has been a serious lack of promotion in the UK and in Mainland Europe. What I do not get is your sites loyalties to Christina Aguilera, I published a link of your review of Bionic because it was one of the few reviews that did not jump on the media bandwagon of Aguilera copies Gaga. (Dont get me started on this one) There is a massive need for you to do a decent amount of research before producing such false and harmful articles.
I AGREE RADIO DOES NOT LISTEN TO THEIR REQUESTS. THEY PLAY WHAT THEY WANT TO PLAY AND REALLY ITS ALL UP TO Z100 NEW YORK TO DETERMINE IF SOMETHING IS A HIT. ONCE YOU’RE ON Z100’S POWER ROLL YOUR SONG WILL AUTOMATICALLY GET 2-3 MILLION LISTENERS A DAY AND THAT’S ALL YOU NEED. MOST STATIONS ARE PRO GAGA ANYWAYS SO SHE REALLY SHOULDN’T HAVE RESPONDED AT ALL TO THE BEEF RUMORS. THAT TURNED PEOPLE OFF AND REALLY ITS OUT WITH THE OLD IN WITH THE NEW. NEW ARTISTS ARE KILLING IT NOWADAYS.
ACTUALLY ITS HERE AND YOU CAN CHECK IT EVERY WEEK. SO NO THEY ARE NOT LYING BUT THAT IS ONE OF THE REASONS WHY THIS STUFF SHOULDN’T EVEN BE AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC. PEOPLE USE IT TO THROW SHADE. ONCE UPON THINGS LIKE THIS WEREN’T AVAILABLE TO NON INDUSTRY PEOPLE.
another perspective on this! http://canweclubtothat.b*******.com/
no wonder her nickname is floptina! i dont think its THAT bad tho! but since its lowest sells of her career! that means shes doing something thats not right! i’m sure her record company is mad disappointed! o well
for once i can agree with LAST BOY ON EARTH
Y’ALL ARE FORGETTING THAT CHRISTINA SOLD OVER 200K IN HER PRE ORDER SALES
WHICH EXPLAINS HER LOW PHYSICAL SALES!
Ummm… this is THE FIRST WEEK and if all anybody has to go on is “Not myself tonight” then obviously ther arn’t going to buy the album.
Once “woohoo” & then a ballad are released sales will pick up.
Trent your a joke so i cant even take you serious & how are the Mariah stans here talking about flops when (even though i love her) mariah has had 2 flop albums in a row? PLUS GLITTER LMAO….
@ Obeloved, that is one of the main stations… They’re a problem! Alot of the DJ’s are pro Gaga and any artist you request, they bring her name into the equation. I requested artist that are popular and worlds away from Gaga and they make remarks about this and that person not being able to compete with Gaga. It’s so bias! They run this and that is at the core of this whole thing. That station have tons of request, but keep Lady G as their only record in heavy rotation. In one hour all you’ll hear is Fame monster, even when it’s a fail(Telephone, Alejandro). Let me not go in! It’s just sad… No hate on any artist doing there thing but make it a fair fight. They all scared and threatened by just about anybody.
everyone thats coming out is gonna FLOP Christina did Ciara will next and Kelly def. is nobody buys albums anymore thx to itunes and limewire its a rap
MARIAH HAS BEEN IN THE INDUSTRY FOR 20 YEARS YOU F****** RETARDS!!!!
So if your comparing….lets compare this to Mariahs fifth album….THE 25 MILLION SELLING SMASH ALBUM!!! Which had three number one singles including One Sweet Day (16 weeks at number 1) – Fantasy (8 weeks) and Always be my baby (2 weeks)
So lets try to keep things into perspective here. At this stage in Mariahs career she was untouchable and undeniably the number one female artists in the game.
So lets stop trying to compare an album Mariah released in the 20th year of her career to and album Christina released in the 10th year of her career.
first week sales mean nothing, mark the sales after a year, that is the point where you can say something has flopped, trust TRENTISHA to cover this post.
this album will sell more than Mariahs E=MC2 & memoirs combined
She can recover from this. This is her “Glitter” moment. Xtina just needs to remember that Mariah had three hit albums after “Glitter,” and there’s no reason why Xtina can’t do the same.
WHY ARE WE EVEN CALLING MARIAHS NAME?????????????
This post is about CHRISTINA’S irrelevance!!!
And @ REASONABLE VOICE – This is not her Glitter moment because there is no terrible movie and no mental breakdown.
SHE’S FLOPPING WITH NO HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Uhm….two flops in a row? Mariah has only ONE studio flop and that is Memoirs but the album did go gold. Even when Glitter flopped she still managed to get a hit song off of that album. As well as Glitter selling over 3 million copies WW. Plus going platinum. Not so bad for a disastrous year for Mariah.
E=MC sold 1.3 million copies with a #1 single and a top 20 hit, so there is no way E=MC is a flop.
We shall see if Bionic outsell E=MC. I bet the rest of the songs released off of Bionic will flop as well.
You gotta love how Christina’s stans are claiming that sales don’t matter and how the illegal downloading has had an impact on music yet they tease and tear down other female artists for flopping (Mariah, Rihanna, Ciara, etc.)
@BEYONCE VS. WORLD
well at least Xtina can write her own sh!t , not stealing songs from other and make it her own
like Sasha Fat did , lol
first week sales well not stop the album of selling more in the coming weeks with the right singles coming after , coz this album is the sh!t
not like ” Memoirs of a FAT angle ” which flopped hard and not even above 400k
xtina greatest hits album sold even more LOOOOLZ
Xtina alwaysss >>>> Fatyonce >>>>> Flopriah
It’s funny though and Mariah stans should be proud to see that after 20 years Mariah still remains part of these conversations…RELEVANT!!!
Unlike Toni Braxton, Whitney Houston and Celine Dion.
All I gotta say is I TOLD YOU SO!!!!!
You cannot let me repeat CANNOT leave for 4 whole years and expect to have a hit album when you come back IN POP MUSIC. Will some of these people at least think!!! You can’t leave no more than 2 years and during those 2 years yo ass better stay in the media. I would even say don’t go any longer than a month without being seen on blogs. The music industry is in danger for real. At this point nobody is truly safe. Radio is running thangs right now and I’m talking 2 or 3 stations. Itunes is also running thangs so if your fan base does not consist of itunes consumers you might as well look for another job. Christina is a prime example that talent will not even save your ass anymore. There is nobody with a voice like hers and she’s out here flopping. I’m saying that if you a stan of somebody you better let your fave know how to play the game because people are dropping like flies. Soon the people that were hot from 2000-2007 will be irrelevant and people from 2008 and beyond will be running the game. This happens every so often when the old gets replaced with the new.
EXACTLY WHY BEYONCE HAS NEVER TAKEN A BREAK!!!!!!!!!!!
In this game today….you get replaced so fast you don’t even see it coming!!!
loooolz stop trying to make Flopriah lookin more funny
Glitter was not a flop ??? yeah that’s why she had a beak down and got her ass kicked from her lable ? hahahaha
Mariah have got in her belt not only one flopped album but FOUR , glitter ( for Sure ) and the flopped album which comes next ( include Through the rain ) , which dont have ANY hit single
E-MC2 was also a FLOP selling 1.3 in the us and 10 k outside the US ( lol )
AAAAND not forgetting the AMAZING super flop ‘ MEMOIRS OF A FAT ANGLE “
i’m a huge fan of Xtina and I RESPECT your opinion and agree with it
its the music business .
Xtina can do better and i’m sure she will ^^
You stans keep bringing on the excuses! Ya’ll sound so stupid! If she would have sold 300,000-800,000 you idiots would be all over this post bragging and allergic to shutting your mouth about it. But now that she’s flopping, the first week sales don’t matter, huh? LMAOOOO! Excuses, excuses, excuses! Why do you have to bring up other artists’ to justify for this flop??? Let’s focus on this one! LMAOOOO! If this was an artist you guys didn’t like you would be ALL OVER THIS POST calling that artist a flop regardless if it were just the first week sales, so stop the B*******! So far this album is a FLOP! FACE IT!
I’m quite upset at this article to be honest with you. Why is numbers so flipping important! She’s number 3 overall and with tour sales will make a crap load of money anyways and her album isn’t half bad.
A good single will put her in running position again. I just hope next time she doesn’t take so long with an album! But people also have to remember that during that break she did give birth to her child and was still touring!!
Make sure when Kelly flops you make a post saying bye to her.
This is exactly what I am saying. When the media and the industry wants to get rid of the old heads or anyone for that matter they do it in such a slick way. Its no coincidence that she went from selling 300k to 100k come on now. She left for 4 years so it was basically like she set herself up to be left in the dust. Yahoo was writing about how she is irrelevant on their front page. They even had Vibe magazine talking about how she needs to fix her career. VIBE MAGAZINE PEOPLE! Nobody was interested in her music and when I say nobody I mean radio. NMT is not that bad at all and I bet if Gaga released it it would be #1 right now. Its just the person that is singing it is not relevant to the radio Djs or the media anymore. And like ROYALKEV said it was basically designed for her to flop. They didn’t give anyone a chance to let her come back and appreciate her music. She was shut down from the beginning. There are a few people I see being next in line its currently being done to Ciara.
But look on the bright side Strain Tina Fans. Shes still talented, can sing, has a beautiful voice (Yells & screams & all) & though most of her album is S***, she still has some good Ballads on it (You Lost Me, Im OK, Lift me up, Etc). So that stands for something, right??
@MR.M BEYONCE MAYBE THICK BUT I BET ANY MAN WOULD WANT BEY BEFORE FUNKTINA SHES A DUMB B**** WHO HAS BEEN REPLACED BY GAGA BACK TO BASICS FLOPED AND SHE TOOK A 4 YEAR BREAK THE B**** WAS BEGGING TO BE REPLACED AND EVERYONE WHO KEEP SAYING MARIAH THIS AND THAT MARIAH FLOP ON HER 10TH AND 12TH ALBUM FUNKTINA IS ON HER 5TH ALBUM SHE SHOULD NOT BE FLOPING
I have purchased all 3 of her past studio albums but this “Bionic” era just wasn’t working for me. But I have to say, in this state of music where albums barely sell, it might not be as big of a “flop” as this Trent states it is. I’m wondering what Christina and her label are thinking right now.
@Sarah1 we arnt talking about 4th alnums were talking LAST albums. Memoirs was a great & underrated album but it flopped, I’ll be sad if Bionic flops too but it’s still a great album and 1st week sales are just that 1 weeks sales.
As for Mariah’s Flop(s) Glitter is like the epitomy of a flp, the flop all other flops aspire to be like lol
E=MC2 did flop, Emancipation sold like 11m E=MC2 sld 3m. But again it was a good album but over the past too album Mariah had the same problem XTina is having now BAD SINGLE CHOICES (besides touch my body).
Hopefully XTina can turn this around and if not i know she’s gonna be back in that studio and back with a hit album ASAP because she isnt the type to take time out with a flop on her back.
Back to Basics did bot flop | BYE
PINK IS GOING TO LOVE THIS NEWS
This album has no feeling or emotion. The songs are too studio generic,,,Insta-Hits/Ramen Songs. I would’nt call it a flop yet, she’ll have a hit ballad off this album…I think it will be a slow and steadt seller like Rated R.
ALL OF THE EXCUSES ARE WACK IF BEY EVER FLOP WHICH SHE WON’T I WANT BE HEARD MAKING WACK EXCUSES I’LL JUST GO HIDE
BEYONCE VS. WORLD
Oh loool , well i’d rather look at xtin than TOUCHING Fatyonce , eww
i could tell her ass is burned @_@
no suprise she married to the UGLY Jay-Z hmmm
B2B sold 5 million copies , is that a flop? and her tour was the higest grossing tour by a female artist in 2007 , even better than fatyonce ,, HA ^_*
she released only 3 singles from B2B and manage to sell 5 mill
not like FLOPYONCE who shot clips of all the album songs sell her B’Day which was a crappp , bad thing beyonce is repeating herself
i dont care if xtina flopped , at least shes a risk taker , she always changing her look , style , etc
beyonce is the same since DC days

@Beyonce Vs. World
SOOOO TRUE! Pink can’t stand X-tina! And that’s just one of the many reasons I LOVE Pink to death!
@TeamWeezy is definately @BeyonceVsTheWorlds bitgch lol
Even though we dissagre on some things i like BvW she is cool, TW on the other hand is a lil b**** lmao
Wane is not even close to XTina’s sales | goodbye.
@ MR. M
H**, BEYONCE Shits all over Strain Tina
B’day sold more in just 1(ONE) Day(200+K) than Scream-Tina sold in 1 week & that will probably still go for next week & the week after that as well. FLOP:
Why Strain Tina Flop? Above everything else It is because QUALITY & SUCCESS GO HAND & HAND. You release CRAP & you will get S*** in return.
@MR.M BEYONCE DOES NOT REPEAT HERSELF BEYONCE 3 ALBUMS SOUND TOTALLY DIFFERENT AND BEYONCE DOESN’T NEED TO CHANGE HER LOOK TO SELL RECORDS THANK U AND MAYBE THAT’S THE REASON BIONIC FLOP BECAUSE FUNKTINA IS STILL ROCKING HER BACK TO BASIC HAIR AND LIPSTICK HMMMMM
@TEAM WEEZY SHE MUST BE A B**** CAUSE THERE AUDIO OF MARYJ.BLIGE SAYING SHE DON’T LIKE HER
I CAN’T WAIT TIL MY GIRL FERGIE COME BACK OUT SO SHE CAN S*** ON HER TO
Coz Fatyonce is stealing songs LOOOOLZ

But to stay relevant to the topic, lets talk about this FLOP! What do you think of X-Tina’s sales? Are you upset with that it is such a dissappointment or do you have more excuses?
I HAVE NO TIME FOR NAME CALLING MR.M FUNKTINA HAS FLOP NOW INSTEAD OF CALLING BEY NAME GO BUY A BIONIC I WOULDN’T BE SHOCKED IF U SITTING UP HERE TALKING ALL THIS S*** AND U PROBABLY DIDN’T EVEN BUY A BIONIC YOURSELF
THAT SOOOOOOO TRUE !!!!!!!!! DAUMMMMMM
OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG
FUNKTINA’S FANS EXCUSES:
THE RADIO STATIONS
THAT GRAPE JUICE DOGGING HER
HER SHIRT BEING RED ANYTHING STUPID IS A GOOD EXCUSE FOR THEM
@ Mr. MAGET
B****, BEYONCE can sing circles around STRAIN-Tina H**!! or shall i say SCREAM-Tina?? Bey has a way better voice & doesnt need to scream & rumble & force every note.
& Beyonce doesnt copy nobody H**!!, Its Strain Tina whos swagger jacking Lady- Gags-Alot.
Flopyonce?? Dont make me laugh. Beyonce SOLD WAY MORE than Strain tina. They both started out in 97 & Bey has since sold over 70 Million albums & 150 Million Records worldwide so H** have a seat B****!! Scream Tina needs to be asking Beyonce how to get a #1. Bey has 9 but where is XTina’s with her S***** ass 2nd rate Music (with the rare exeption of Hurt & You lost me). bey has 16 grammys, Where is Strain tinas Grammys??
@S*** THESE FUNKTINA FANS JUST NEED TO FACE IT BIONIC HAS FLOP SHE WASTE A GREAT ALBUM COPY
Trent or whatever your f****** name is. You are a asshole. How the hell is getting to number 3 a “bomb”???? Its still in the top 5. How can anyone say its even a “bomb” or “flop” now, its only the first week sales and its only come out idiots. What the f*** is your problem with this woman. She has been getting lots and lots of backlash and critcism from a lot of blogs and websites and it is very unfair and disrespectful. Shes doing a different sound so what???? she can do what the hell she likes. Am sick of people like you being biased and just writing nasty stuff about her. This woman has the best voice around, out of all the pop stars in her age group, its about time people respect her talent instead of trying to bring her down. The reason for reduce sells is because people like you, Perez Hilton, and lots of other websites, giving her negative publicity, and making her look bad, radio stations and music channels boycotting her music, unfairly comparsions to other artist, and poor promotion. Just because the sells are low now doesnt mean its gonna “bomb” and even if it does so what??? she will always be more talented than all of her rivals, none of them can take that away from her. I dont even think shes even worried about how much she sells. Trent seems more concerned than she does. You people claim you dont like her, yet again you do so much research about her, like how much albums shes selling, or whats shes doing. Some of you know more about her than the fans. Leave her alone and get a life.
Christina Aguilera in my opinion had an outstanding debut year, with 3 number ones and top cd and a surprise grammy win. Other than Lady Marmalade and Aint No Other Man and Beautiful shes nothing. Ive never seen her as a threat to beyonce, mariah, alicia, or britney
I really don’t think these album sale figures is a failure compared to the sales of other albums on the charts remember its only been out for only one week / I don’t think y’all remember “STRIPPED” when she release “DIRRTY” lol that song only peaked at NO. 48 and then at the time of release of her second single the album sales increase because of “BEAUTIFUL”.But clearly the reason for “XTINA” not doing well is because of the skanky song “Not Myself Tonight” NO.23 wrong choice for a first single. I must say I love the album I think she really did an outstanding job by doing electronic music and the ballads are still raw and amazing. The album will gain momentum with the release of a second single as well as the tour she needs to hurry up if she wants to save her album sales.I do believe that her sales will reach platinum status by the end of the year. I disagree with all of these hating ass eratic comments on here about XTINA .BIONIC forever B****** you either love it or hate it.
The album still is filled with good music.
It still debuted in the Top 3, was the highest non-soundtrack album of the week.
It’s not like all of Christina’s albums have debuted at # 1, anyway.
I wouldn’t call it a flop until she’s done promoting it. I still think there is potential for singles to do well on iTunes/radio.
YOU DO NOTICE, that 1 thing RCA and Christina did not do, was push the album back after the first single didn’t do as expected unlike another Pop star which one of the writers stans for and another which the other ‘lamb’ s for. I think that shows something.
IDK I still enjoy XXXTTTIIINNNA
HOW IS IT A FLOP YOU HATERS
SHE GOT TO #1 IN UK ALBUM CHARTS BEATING OT LADY GAGA (MUHAHAHA) AND ALICIA KEYS ETC…
YOU AMERICANS JUST DNT APPRICIATE TALENT :S
* EVERYBODY SPREAD THE WOD AND BUY BIONIC ITS AMAZING* – SHE IS BACK!!!!
SHE IS #1 IN UK ALBUM CHARTS SO HOW IS IT A FLOP ?
U AMERICANS DONT APPRECITE UR OWN TALENT!!!
BUY BIONIC NOWW ITS AMAZING ESPECIALLY SOME SONGS THT WILL B ON THE DELUXE ALBUM
XTINA IS BAK!!!!!!!!!!!
it’s so sad but i think her fans aren’t as loyal as britney’s fans point blank! im a fan of both but that’s what it looks like to me,it really is a sad thing because i love the album and she should be selling more than that in her first week sales especially after the promo she did. i don’t think britney will be next though people still love her and she can’t be compared to gaga like xtina has because Britney’s sound is kind of BRITNEY.
don’t give up christina you know what release a ballad as a 3rd single you could still save it like you did stripped.
TRENT…lol…I love your commentary. People may not appreciate your viewpoints but personally I do. I feel the same way. XTINA: GIRL BYE. The bleach blonde THIN hair, too much make-up & overall style: HATEDIT! NEEEEXXXXXXTTTTT.
I do love her voice but screeching for the sake of screeching gets old and annoying.
well isnt that a b****…………………….Oh well, we all know it was going to happen, Usher sold more than her, MJB sold more, alicia keys sold more, trust people is buying music, just not that lame Pop s*** she was trying to do with this album, Maybe she can bounce back in the next 4 years
Again. E=MC did NOT flop. It was a disappointment compared to TEOM but the album was still a success.
@ Mr. M
Where yo Wack Ass at now H**?? You ready for another Ass Whopping B****??. You sorry Strain Tina Stans are being dragged left to right & Back & forth. I will drag your Bionic ass all over this Blog!! Try me…
OMFG *DEAD* http://i45.tinypic.com/noblme.jpg
i love BEYONCE god im like ahhhhh when i hear her sing and ill never forget the halo performane for the little australian girl ive cried every single time ive watched it. it’s true at times christina goes overboard on the vocals like she wants to show she has something to prove but it ends up being meh.when she just SINGS though it’s such a beautiful sound and voice, in all honesty i think she released bionic 2 years later than she should have.
Unfortunately from the performance of her other LPs this doesnt really matter to me. I think that Christina will show and prove in the long run that she knows what she’s doing. Most artist these days open with these big numbers then tank 2-3 months down the road. I don;t see this being the case I think its going to pick up once she releases another song, w/ a hook LOL
So much for taking a break and waiting for people to miss you and anticipate your next album…guess that doesn’t always work after all. Don’t believe me…just ask Christina.
I know it’s a tough blow for the Christina fans but attacking/hating other artists won’t change the fact that Christina’s album is flopping hard. Christina has a great voice (when she’s not screaming or straining) BUT, she needs BETTER SONGS!
Hate to say it but I don’t see this album picking up, as much as I think it is a good effort and a listenable album, I don’t see any other songs on the album making a hit. Maybe “You Lost Me” which Xtina is already pushing but doesn’t seem to be getting people buying the album.. This is a wait and see situation, it’s too early to call it a flop but not looking good.
You know Trent, the way you generalized and summed up her career because of record sales on ONE album is incredible to me. What if people just didn’t like the music. So they didn’t buy it this time around. You live and you learn and now she knows that her funs were expecting something different and maybe she’ll deliver next go round. Back in the day, it took months for albums and singles to reach #1. Records had a chance to grow on you. This time, ppl look at 1st week sales and throw away the rest…WTHECK is that? You talk about a lot of artists on this site with a very negative tone and spirit….why waste YOUR time?
This won’t be the last you hear from her, this will just push her even further, and inspire her to do something bigger and better next time.
Every Artist has an album that’s least successful than the others, and this is Christina’s. This album was also quite experimental for Christina, using more electronic sounds, so hopefully she’ll learn and move on. Also, the term “comeback” is silly, she has been absent from the music scene because she was raising a family, and lets not forget she released a Greatest Hits back in 2008 that had some success.
Can’t wait to see what she does next. Lets hope we see another album from her in the next couple of years, doing what she does best. She has one of the most amazing voices in the world, I doubt this is it for her, she’s just getting warmed up.
“And if you don’t like it F*** You!”
Why is everyone talking like the album is dead and done. She stiill has more singles to release, more performances to do and more promo. Its only the fist week. She could release a single or video and things could take off. At least give an album 6 months to a year before you say its a flop. You never know what can happen.
Christina’s goooooooooooooooooaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaalllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll should be being true to herself as an artist. On this record she failed to do that and this is why it is a commercial failure. She is a soul singer who incorporates R&B, Jazz and Blues. That is what she should be doing. she should not be making dance music. Most of her fans want an album with soulfulness, an album with meaningful, heartfelt songs. She should deliver those songs with the beautiful voice she has. This album does not cut it. Its not going to get her a grammy either. I know many people will not want to hear this but if “Not Myself Tonight” does get nominated for Dance Recording it will certainly lose to Lady Gaga. This is an album that the general public will forget about by the end of this month.
I truely love Christina. I am a huge fan of her work but this time I am very dissapointed. I have bought all of her albums but I could not buy this album. I can not buy an album where an artist abandons their musical roots. I’m sure many other people felt the same way.
Xtina did not flop, well compare to what Kelly and Ciara will make. lol
N why is Mariah in this thread. Mariah is over. 1st Glitter, then EMC2 then that Angel s***. Shes done again. Mariah stans need to stop leing about them albums beings hits cause they were clearly not. Esp compare to EMC 05 N her 90s work.
I KNEW IT!!!!!!!!!!!! I KNEW THE ALBUM SALES WOULD BE VERY POOR!!!! THE ALBUM WAS FULLY LEAKED IN EARLY MAY!!!! SO HOW DID SHE EXPECT TO DO WELL IN SALES A MONTH LATER AFTER IT WAS LEAKED IN FULL????? THAT MAKES NO SENSE!! SHE NEEDS TO WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE, I AM SURE WAS A WARE THAT THE ALBUM WAS LEAKED! AND THIS IS THE PRICE SHE PAID FOR NOT WAKING UP!! AFTER SO MANY YRS IN THE GAME YOU’D THINK SHE WOULD BE AWARE OF HOW TIMES AND MUSIC AND TECHNOLOGY CHANGE! SORRY XTINA, A DAMN GOOD ALBUM, BUT RELEASED THE WRONG TIME!
FollowTINA is late and the industry is no longer interested in what she has to offer. How many parties did she crash demanding that she be let in. With a flop career, they’ll for sure refuse her entrance to any celeb party she decides to crash..
Mariah Carey is some where in the world laughing her ass off..
Bionic sold less then MOAIA even with all this promo. It’s Christina 4th compered to Mariah’s 12th album.
It’s called Gaga effect.
Now yaw know you need to quit!
A second video and a tour and by the end of this year, that album will be platinum.
Don’t be so quick to count her out…….
now i’m gonna cry!
cuz she flopped, that means she has no talent!
wah wah wah!!!
yea whatever. She’s gonna keep doing what she does… who gives a f*** if she’s a flop.
She’s doesn’t make music to please every single person, that’s why no body likes her.
well she’s here to stay. whether she flops or not, if u don’t like it F*** YOU.
this negative blog wished her to flop. but look who else is flopping, falling behind Queen BEY… *COUGH*COUGH*kellly*COUGH*COUGH*
i am BIONIC.
I don’t understand you Trent.
So you think that sales show the measure of talent? Because she is a singer. And talent counts. Not sales.
I can show you tons of great singers and artists, who never sold millions of record, but they had million times more talent, than e.g. who sells 300-500k in the first week.
So I don’t think you should say BYE to Christina. I think you should say BYE to yourself, because you think you are someone because you write some shits on Sam’s blog, and you think that because of this you are SOMEONE.
Sorry darling. You are NO ONE. 🙂
ANd whatever you write, that doesn’t mean that you are right, or you have the truth.
Don’t forget this, because you really live your life and thinking in a very bad way.
You will have tons of problems in the future with yourself, just belive me.
i dont blame her,its the blogs and the comparisons and the obsessed fans,just exactly what they did to chris brown,if there was no internet she would have sold better
LMAO!!!!! POOR FLOPTINA!!!
So these days if your album debuts in the top 5 in the US and several others countries and in the top 10 in lots more then you’re a flop? My God if that’s the case around 99% of the world’s musicians are going to be hurling themselves off the top of buildings. Makes you wonder why Billboard bother having a top 200 album chart – they could just have the top 2?!
i want to see how many copies Britney sales on the first week and i will laugh of all Britney Stans insulting Christina …
I don’t get all this fights between fans! I am huge Xtina fans but I love so many other artist. My top artists: Xtina, Beyonce, Kelly Clarkson, Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Black Eyed Peas, Robyn, Katy Perry (love her for not taking herself so seriously!), Korn I can’t imagine my iTunes witout all these artists and many more. I used to like Lady GaGa but I’m sick of hearing the same s*** all the time! People that are slaging other artist to make their favs look better are just pathetic!
It’s fascinating that on the same blog where people scream about record sales now they are no longer important, interesting!! I think Bionic could still have some legs later on (even though critics are not as favorable), Whether people want to realize it or not, radio is absolutely controlled by labels, they are given the songs to play. Alot of the artist receiving the most play are under Univeral Music Group ( interscope,def jam, etc) which is the MOST POWERFUL music group so there may be some truth to some of the posts above.
No one is really moving that much music anymore, in fact, the Thom Yorke of Radiohead said that major labels are about to fold in a matter of months so who knows ( I think Usher said the same thing recently)? Christina will be fine whether the album “flops” or not, she may be embarrased but it is not the end of the world. Granted she did have a LOT of PROMO but things do happen.
OH MY GOD SALES ARE LOW….. I GUESS THAT HER CAREER IS OVER!!!!! LOL
At the end of the day the album is still top five in the US and is top 10 or even top 5 in a lot of other european territories so hardly a flop album PLUS as peeps have mentioned there has only been ONE OFFICIAL SINGLE release off Bionic so far….. Woo Hoo hasn’t even got a video yet. Bionic is a solid album with a lot of potiential hits as long as they are picked right. I am a huge fan from the UK (where Bionis is number 1) and I have to admit I am disappointed with these numbers but huge numbers don’t always = the best music or best album. In the long run Christina will be fine it’s not like her label will drop her or she will disapppear…. she has REAL TALENT and is a REAL ARTIST and that always endures and bounces back!!!!!
The people who say that floptina has a talent, can you please tell me what kind of a talent she has??? Having a powerful voice is a physical feature not a talent.. There are a lot of people who have weaker voice but sing much better than floptina.. Plus she cannot even perform.. If she would have talent, she would not need to COPY other artists.. She deserved to flop and flopped hard… Industry has place for Britney,Beyonce,Gaga and Rihanna.. Not for poor floptina.. End of story…
Commenter LOLI: u are a loser.. Britney is a high-class superstar and stop comparing Britney to flop-singers just to make your flop idol relevant.. U asked about Britney’s sales.. Circus has sold more than 500.000 copies in it’s first week in the US… Is that enough for you??? Britney is a brand with a strong fame unlike that loser floptina who is an UNPOPULAR COPYCAT.. The funniest thing is that FLOPTINA also disses the artists who she also copies.. What a shame!!! The biggest disaster about floptina is her horrible personality.. Although Britney is away and does not care about her career right now, she is still ultra-relevant.. Coz she is the queen and got the throne, also got a great personality.
Floptina’s loser fans thought that having a break will make floptina more interesting when she comes back, but they sucked their own ass-holes haha, nobody even remembers who is floptina:) I remembered who she is when i saw this post:) she totally suxxxx
Now you see why Bey is smart enough to not leave the spotlight completely. It’s hella hard to stay interesting to the public. Does the name Toni Braxton ring a bell? Unless you have mega fans like Madonna, the late MJ, and Whitney, ain’t nobody going to be checking for you. Bey, keep working and staying relevant to the public. You and Jay know what to do.
Hahahha OMG Trent you are hate is now gettin really funny… Oh well yeah Christina career is over but its good to know that your idol Mariah is still rocking … my ass
F*** OFF BITCHESSS
F*** where’s waldo…….where the f*** is Mariah sweetie? Maybe in line for a wing ding dinner at KFC boo! Nobody is checking for her you act like her last album sold that much more…..
Xtina it’s okay honey these Gaga stans must have bumped their head and forgot that her album sold 20k in the first week but then went on to be a success. But that Alejandro video has people scratching their heads. That’s why Katy Perry replaced that b**** <3
XTINA girl your album is amazing and you know it. No need to entertain these half baked dried up haters. Get some water boo.
To Trent and the sea of haters who came here to pan the best singer of this generation, I have one thing to say. F*** you.
You’re nothing but a bunch of regressed a-holes who probably spent the good half of your lives watching people you envy bask in the spotlight while you stay in the background waiting for them to fall so that you can shoot them down. You’re all disgusting, and I don’t even have to be a fan to know and realize that.
“The Industry has left her behind”? Take a good look at the kind of music you’re posting here and think hard if you really have the authority or the knowledge to back that up. I have no intention of bashing other artists, but the music videos and songs you feature here can barely even crack the mainstream. a.k.a Kelly Rowland.
SO WHY ARE YOU SO INTENT ON SHOVING YOUR STANDARDS OF HIT OR FLOP IN THE THROAT OF READERS WHEN YOU’RE IDOLS (WITH THE EXCEPTION OF MARIAH) CAN’T EVEN COME AT PAR?
I don’t get it. Mariah flopped many times but that doesn’t take away any of her talent. Christina, as much as how I would have wanted her “Bionic” album to sell well, don’t need records to rein herself in an industry infested by “artists” who can’t even write a song or sing. This site is proving to be a disgusting channel that measures artists’ worth by how much their album sell and how high their singles chart. Do you even listen to great artists that are outside of mainstream, Trent? Oh. never mind, for I don’t think that you know that such is possible. Add that your taste in music, in all honesty, truly sucks.
I’m ready to wash my hands of your filth. The fight is not over yet for Christina and you’re a complete idiot if you think otherwise, so know this. I’m gonna be the first person to comment on your future chart-driven (as usual) post on how Christina slay them b****** for a comeback. Sooner or later you’re gonna be debunked again.
And to all haters, Christina is the best singer of this generation. If you really think (insert big laugh) that in terms of vocal ability your idols can even come at par, then congratulations is at hand… You’re an official r*****.
@BEYONCE VS. WORLD
I found you are spending too much time on christina.
Are you absessed with her?
Why are you putting Mariah, Beyonce, etc. here…?
It’s about Christina Aguilera’s album… I’m a fan of these all (Well, Mariah always comes 1st… 🙂 ) and it’s sad to see such news… I don’t like Christina’s new album much, it’s maybe the style, the production… I expected something more classic and pure, some ballads maybe… but whatever… Hope it gets better with time… The sales, I mean…
“This marks the lowest 1st week sales in the history of Aguilera’s career.” That could be said for SO many albums nowadays. This is such a sensational statement.
This album will defo work it’s way up high on the chart……..watch this space!!!!!!
artist cant take breaks in this industry why do you think rihanna and gaga are both already working on there next releases while they are touring once you take a break you might as well consider retirement
I love Christina, she has a powerful voice, & actually has talent. She has staying power because of it, but I don’t think it was a good idea that she took 4 years off, a lot can happen in 4 years.
Pretty girl Katy Perry shits on Ugly face Gaga
KATY KATY KATY
Men lie women lie numbers don’t…the excuses are killing me tho…now all of the sudden album sales don’t matter…lolz

@chicky (amanda bynes) tweets lyrics from her songs quite often. “After all the fights and the lies, ur wanting to haunt me, that wont work anymore cuz its over :)” … “I wanna thank u cuz u made me that much stronger – Fighter by Christina Aguilera” “Time 4 good song lyrics! Keeps Getting Better by Christina Aguilera….. ” “Some days I’m a super b**** up to my old tricks but it won’t last forever next day I’m ur super girl and it keeps getting better so hold on” “’m gonna tell u right now, I’ll make it sweet on the lips i’ll simply knock u out cuz when we’re both in the ring ur gonna like it my way.”
& of course the people who work with her (her dancers, stylist, people she worked with for bionic etc) are always tweeting about her.

You’re right, Perez. Christina is such a FLOP!
She’s such a flop that she has sold 43 million albums worldwide with less studio albums than her peers.
She’s such a flop that her debut alone sold 16 Million copies, 8 in the USA alone.
She’s such a flop that her debut is in the top 100 albums of all time by the RIAA certifications.
She’s such a flop that she had three #1 hits off of her debut album.
She’s such a flop that she won Best New Artist even though all of the hype was for Britney Spears.
She’s such a flop that she has won 5 Grammy Awards, one being a Latin Grammy (setting a record there).
She’s such a flop that her sophomore album Stripped sold about 13 million worldwide.
She’s such a flop that she co-wrote Kelly Clarkson’s “Miss Independent,” winning song writing awards for it.
She’s such a flop that she released a Blues/Jazz album in a world of autotune and still managed to go to #1, selling 4 million copies.
She’s such a flop that her last tour was the most successful of 2007 earning over $90 million.
What a FLOPtina! HIGHlarious! LOLz!

Celebrity Juice, Not from Concentrate
Trent is secondary fat f** Perez Hilton.
Stop with her PAST accomplishments. This is 2010 and her album just FLOPPED!
Them #’s are pathetic and it dont matter what she did before she is irrelevant now. Even with all them sales you just lamely listed she still came in below Glee and Twilight a mere 112,000.
Her voice is stll great She just didnt come original she was a little GaGa some Madonna
i am loving me some trent by now. THAT was a funny post.
dont feel sorry for the b****, she has an ugly big ass house and lots of cash to find herself a new hobby that wont require us to run to the doctor because our eardrums threw their hands up.
@PoorLowSeller, u must be joking mate
@Jerome: PREACH!!! This blog is too hate filled, didn’t see it at first as I was used to concreteloop’s more unbiased style…, hysterical queens who love to bask in the failure of others seem to run and predominately read this site, it is totally disgusting. Albums take time, effort and talent (if not the talent of the artist’s then the talent of the producers) and it’s really gross that projects people who have worked so hard on can be so flippantly dismissed esp’ down to sales…, I guess I just find it a worrying sign that between irresponsible blogging, maintream radio and major labels there is a strangle-hold on the industry at the moment.
People need to remember that these gate-keepers are merely ‘elected’ fans, they are not musically gifted, nor are they authorities on the music business. Stop taking what Sam, Trent and the likes of Perez Hilton’s personal angendas as reason to stop investigating the music and artists for yourselves. Sales are important for the artist not the fans so who cares…, if you like Bionic go buy it, or at least go to the tour when it happens, if you don’t then at least decide that after listening to more than just ‘Not Myself Tonight’ jeez… Don’t be a SHEEP
Last word, all this ‘Strain-Tina’ nonsense…, she’s a quality vocalist with range in rnb, rock and blues. The amount of jealousy on show is embarassing.
what are considered normal opening week numbers? how much did other comeback artists like whitney get their first week? can someone please fill me in on these details?
i think with the release of a couple more solid, non-swagger-jacking, singles, she will establish herself in the public eye once more, and sooner or later she will raise herself back up to the platinum status she is used to enjoying.
christina got Monroe look.
lady gaga looks like 43 or so, ugly
mariah is huge, so is big fat britney
beyonce is ok, but her thigh is too strong.
rihanna or pink looks like an aggressive man.
Katy Perry is the sexiest in the world!!!!!
Okay i think some of you forget that RIhanna’s CD debuted less than this. And as for Britney, Circus didn’t flop, but the album before it sort of did. I can’t even remember the name of it. opps
hahaha BRITNEYS SOLD WAY MORE :):)
christina should come up with her own material and not copy every other artist on the planet!
and then her album might get somewhere!!
oh please dont compare britney to christina… britney has a nice attitude and most of celebrities loves her. thats why even her public meltdown she still have many supporters because shes really a sweetheart.. while christina she may have a great voice but her attitude is REALLY a TURN OFF!
Just a little thought for all those who think numbers are the be all and end all of things…
Who has had 23 singles chart on the Hot 100 in 2010? Who has had 4 Top 10 albums in the UK this year (including 2 number 1s)?
Answer: Glee, yep bl**dy Glee! So much for sales equalling talent / good music!
Toni Braxton’s 50k first week sales were stellar, (let Trent or Sam tell it)
Right? Because that’s what they said in the interview. i mean girl ignorance is bliss but in this case it’s a chronic disease. The bias kills me. Anywho X-X-T–T-I-I-N-N-A did well considering the smear campaign. SMH.
This is music, dude!!!!
I thought people love music because they love peace, BUT you guys are just expecting a battle, a cat-fight, a war, like today AA vs BB, tomorrow CC vs DD……
it seems you guys are watching wrestling games???
that’s so funny.
Xtina is not just as simple as a singer, perfomer or celebrity, she is an artist, and so is Alicia Keys, Linkin Park and etc.
i do confess that XTINA is not as popular as sweetdumpling Britney Spear, or sells as many as Brit does. Also Beyonce sold more than Britney or Christina. But they are of different styles and sometimes attracting to different people. If music start to set up a standard, then people will have less choice, and all the world will just like eating in the same McDolnal’s or whatever.
In those female artist, Britney is also one of my favourite, her voice is very sweet, the lyrics are very catchy and she looks lovely, she is like a BIRTHDAY CAKE to me. “Toxic” is one of my all time favourite, I know Britney Spear knows how to stay top in Entertainment Biz. Brit’s “Baby one more time” , Xtina’s “Genie in the bottle” , N syc’s ” Bye Bye Bye” were my favourites when I was in high school. Christina phoned Britney several times to comfort her when she got lowest downturn in her life back in 2006.
Bee can control her voice and breath like playing a piano with perfect skills, “Irreplaceable”, “Sweet Dream” are just like African Drum with good beats. I just love Beyonce Live on stage. She is of course one of the greatest in R&B genre.
Mariah Carey’s voice is so great, I love her ballads and R&B. Although she is getting heavier because of her age, who cares? We love her voice! Mariah is lengendary in an era when there was no internet download. Christina has the highest respect for her, she mentioned 10 years ago when she got her first grammy, I watched the interview before. She also used to sing mimi’s “vision of love” when she got an interview as a young kid. The tabloids know how to exaggerate a small incident into a super large news. Those are trivial things common in our daily life because we are human, and we knows how to forgive. MC and CA have respect for each other, they do not have any feud at all.
BUT Xtina is very unique, she got something that Britney or Beyonce DID/DOES not process, the guts to take risks, she hates to be labeled as buble gang pop-singer, she fired her manager and obtained the freedom to choose her own music style she loves. She did different genres, jazz, r&b, blue, pop…every time she changed, she did amazingly well!!! Back2basics is very classic!!!! Christina got the abilility to face those critics that she knew will happen and uniquity ways to express herself about being vulnerable, being timid, being stronger, being happy, being a woman, and feeling sexier as she becomes an mom. Her voice is very infecting, she’s got the talent and creativity and knows how to express the feeling, the emotion through her vocal. Now she tried dance music, returned to her pop roots this time. Bionic is actually a super great album. This is first time i enjoy the electronic pop version of XTINA (meanwhile she also provides some great ballads like “lift me up”, “You lost me”, “I am”…, and i personally feel that it is the greatest xtina ablum till now. The bonus track “Monday Morning” is now my favorite dance music played in my ipod.
Some of you guys just are not able to know what is art, instead some of you just care about the sales, charts, britney vs christina, mariah vs whitney, beyone vs AK, or lady gaga vs katy perry, etc….and disses….ridiculous! Actually those singers supplies us with different choices, like coke, beer, or vodka, or like Franch food, Chinese, Tai food…
I know lady gaga is super popular and on top now like britney did ten years ago, but it is ridiculous for those PerezHilton-like people who constantly diss xtina because she jumps into a genre called “dance music”. Lady gaga’s perfomance is interesting, especially her wears, she is definately most popular now. But the American media should not follow Lady Gaga’s trend and give revenging,biased, or unfair review on Xtina, or forbid xtina trying dance music because many of you become “Monster”. Xtina will never be a treat to gaga as she has never been reaching the popularity as britney spears. More than that, xtina’s version of electronic dance and style is completely different from ladygaga’s except that they both show some homage to Madonna in their music videos. Xtina stated she would try electronic pop back in 2007 b2b tour. So pls stop dissing xtina, and her fans because you love lady gaga.
We are people who love music, we love peace. Madonna kissed both britney and christina, she thinks they are both great singers, she is not comparing their sales amount, grammy numbers, or whatever.
Artists are those group of people who are daring to push the boundaries, break the norms, and overcome the limits. Those who only follows charts or sales are commercial singers, they are as simple as celebrities. Xtina always has the guts to take risks to express herself in different dimensions.
That why I like her music. BIONIC is actually an amazing album! I am also expecting Britney come out another great ablum!! So let’s party instead of hates!
“Music makes the people come together”—–Madonna
@music makes people come together you know what whatever you say its still useless! the most problem with christina is her ATTITUDE! look when she sing on stage look at her facial expression after the song its like ” IM THE BEST B******” just like when she performed in american idole finale look at her face and mouth, shes not humble..even last grammy 2006 or 2007? when they mentioned her name for nominee her face its like ” I WILL WIN AGAIN B******” ! i really hate that ATTITUDE! she should knw how to look back where she came from, because before she get LITTLE FAMOUS she doesnt have any millions in her hands..so, now she is RICH, meaning she should become a DIVA? NO!
i could say, you really got really good imagination
and I know lots of people come here because they got mental problems.
they come here to relieve their mental depressions by dissing others.
many of those only see dark side of everything.
i just wish you well.
Its a shame. I hate to see anyone go down like this, but what I can laugh about is all the xtina fans that thought gaga was gonna be blown out the water by xtina,like foreal? They talked all this s*** about gaga and how xtina is the queen…hmmm doesn’t really look like it does it?
So, Bionic is now the official number 1 on the European Top 100 album chart – no doubt a fact that could only be interpreted on this site as another piece of evidence to prove what a complete flop it is.
Go read yhis bionic review see he gets what aguilera was doing with the album and her direction the last paragraph totally true
I’ve always thought people in Bulgaria (the country I live in) are haters and my dream was to communicate with people with different cultures because Ive always trusted that you’re more understanding, polite and kind. More mature in your development, if I must say. Now, reading this blog Ive convinced myself that haters around the world are just the same. Poor you, that just shows how immature and narrow-minded you all are. When you read your posts, do you feel good about yourself? When you look in the mirror, do you find yourself pretty? Because you probably ain’t – people full of hatred are ugly on the inside and on the outside.
Anyways, Christina pulled out an amazing album. Her voice sounds better than ever and each song has an unique touch. This album is not actually for the masses – it’s for people who cherish real music. Lyrics are unique, music is amazing. Have you even listened to it? Have you heard Birds of pray and Stronger than ever? I hardly doubt. It;s a masterpiece and those who have a decent taste and musical culture know that.
And blaming her for taking a 4 years break? Dudes, she became a mother, for Christ Sake. I doubt any of people who are hating on this blog have children because if they did, they wouldnt spend so much time on hating. Family comes before ANYTHING ELSE IN THE WORLD. Yeah, Beyonce and Rihanna, Lady Gaga (which I respect a bunch) can pull out an album every year and who of them all have a child? Freaking George Michael has only 4 studio albums in his 25 years old career and he’s still one of the most respected artist worldwide (and don’t go all f***** s*** on that).
I personally don’t give a damn about sales. Ive never done, never will and I will tell you why – quality is always over quantity. I enjoy this album every single minute every day.
I actually really like your point =)
All this selling crazy business we are into is ridiculous. An artist is as good as the number of albums he/she sells.
Bionic is an amazing album. The production is excellent. So many sounds in every song. The more I listen to it, the more I find. An despite all the electro and disco twist, she still produces good pop melodies easier for all of us to follow.
She is not trying to take over the songs with her, possibly one of the best voices around, but instead it blends in such a way that it works 100%. Even when she shares a song, she allow the other artist to shine. I love the attitude.
She has done again. She has reinvented herself. They say she looks like Madonna, a very improved version I would say.
Basically. Well done girl. Keep on following your instints. Keep on looking so georgeous cause the more you show, the more I want to see.
Good luck Christina you have done enough already to be a music legend.
I’m not like a lot of people up there who are genuinely excited about Christina’s failure, but…. I am truly happy that this album failed. I’m a huge Christina fan, always have been, but you can’t be gone for 4 years leaving true fans hanging, and then just come back and expect to have the same following, even after you’ve changed your style so dramatically. Bionic (to me) SUCKS!!! It’s her first album I haven’t liked at all! This album deserved to fail and I’m SO glad that an artist is finally be held accountable for releasing CRAP!
I feel bad for her, cuz un-like Britney, Cristina can sing for real and has REAL talent. Maybe after this embarrasing Lady Gaga-esque attempt, the real Cristina will come back. The girl CAN SING!!!! This is NOT Britney Spears or that cat in heat Kesha.
Exclusio Video: Christina Aguilera N*** ( VIDEO )
Enjoy!!! She pretty s***….
Christina is amazing and I love this NEW album! YOU GO GIRL! I think it’s right up there with Stripped! CA has the most amazing voice and is beautiful! I bought the album and advise others to do so… People STEAL music too much now and that is why the sales are low. AND PLEASE STOP COMPARING HER TO GAGA. There is no comparison!
wtf! ITS FUNNY THAT AGENT_Mariah WANTS TO TALK S*** WHEN MARIAH HAS A BIG FLOP ON HER HANDS AS WELL!!!! ITS FUNNY CAUSE MARIAH CAREY HAD A TOTAL FLOP! SHE WASNT EVEN GONE FOR A LONG TIME!! MARIAH’s ALBUM HAS BEEN OUT FOR ALMOST A YEAR AND STILL HASNT EVEN SOLD 500,000 COPIES YET! what a FAILURE!!! CHRISTINA WILL BE PLATIMUN IN LESS THAN A YEAR! BANK ON THAT!!!
Bionic is Great! im serious. best album to date. too sad for her but even miley cyrus ‘cant be tamed’ got lower than xtina’s sales. it seems like all of this is because of lady gaga but alejandro has bombed also. too bad for these girls. mtv was better back then when xtina,justin and beyonce is ruling the music industry,
well, based on sales, bionic is a major flop.
but as a fan, after listening to the entire album (deluxe edition), bionic will never be a fail.
it lacks direction but it offers variety. and variety equates to talent.
an album which produces electro mainstream to powerful ballads. only christina can live up to that.
DENTISTA. youre comment here was the best one ive read so far about bionic.

fans will always be fans. =)

i honestly dont get it. i’m not even an xtina fan, but she has some fun songs (my faves are bionic, i hate boys, i am, glam) ballads are not my thing, but xtina has a good voice either way. you’d think her hardcore fans would support her more and buy her album even if it wasnt her best. i am a justin bieber fan and even though i dont like the idea of an acustic album (lets face it, justin’s voice sounds better with edition) i will still buy it to support him. xtina has s***** fans i guess, that download everything instead of supporting her.
i feel tempted to buy bionic out of pity lol.
bought the album, some song are really great and the rest is really bad. stripped was truely the best album yet from christina. wish she comes out with a new one. a really good one so she get taken seriously
I really disliked this album, I understand that Christina likes to try new things, but I just think that this idea was nowhere near where she needed to go. This has nothing to do with how well or not well the industry is doing. I think that this album just does not demonstrate her true creativity.
She is one of the best singers of this age , and I think that if she puts all her resources to good use she will get somewhere. Back to basics was phenomenal, maybe going back to her roots is where she needs to be, instead of doing the total opposite ( which this album was- it was like complete blast to the future after a throwback album with a hint of stripped). My recommendation– her collaboration with Herbie Hancock was really great, do more jazzz!!! I still have huge hopes for her, I believe in her voice and her music. BRING IT XTINA!
YOU ALL ARE PIECES OF SHITS! CHRISTINA’S ALBUM DID NOT FLOP! EVERYBODY NOW A DAYS STEAL MUSIC SO THE ARTIST GET F***** OVER. CHRISTINA AGUILERA IS THE BEST AND MOST TALENTED ARTIST AROUND TODAY! ALL YOU BRITNEY AND GAGA AND BEYONCE FANS CAN GO CRY IN THE CORNER. CAUSE NOT ONLY DOES CHRISTINA HAVE THE PIPES TO OUT DO ANY OF THEM, BUT SHE HAS THE MONEY BRAINS AND TALENT TO BE A LEGEND. SO STOP BEING MEAN AND ACKNOWLEDGE WHEN SOMEONE IS GOOD. YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE MEAN TO HER CAUSE YOU LIKE SOMEONE ELES. YOU REALIZE THEY ARE ALL FRIENDS. YOU GUYS ARE THE ONES FORMING WARS AND CLICKS. THEY COULD GIVE A S*** LESS!
