Final Numbers Are In: Christina Aguilera’s ‘Liberation’ Sold…

Published: Monday 25th Jun 2018 by Rashad

Six years have separated fans from 2012’s ‘Lotus’ to the latest album of powerhouse vocalist Christina Aguilera.  

Delivered after years of false starts and reroutes, the set – kicked off by the Ty Dolla $ign-assisted buzz single ‘Accelerate’ – saw promotion for its follow-up singles and parent album do just that with appearances on Carpool Karaoke, Billboard Music Awards, ‘TRL,’ and more to support.

Released June 15, the set’s chances at #1 were dashed by opposing releases from 5 Seconds of Summer and a surprise drop from Beyonce & Jay Z, but that certainly didn’t stop it from moving a respectable figure.  Curious to see how close her final figure was to the predicted 70-75,000k units it was projected to move?  Look inside to see:


Pop diva Christina Aguilera returns to the Billboard 200 albums chart after a long break, as her new studio album Liberation bows at No. 6. It’s the singer’s seventh top 10 effort, and first album since 2012.

Liberation — released on June 15 via RCA Records — starts with 68,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending June 21, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 62,000 were in traditional album sales. [source]


The numbers fall just below that of the first week figures of ‘Lotus,’ which moved 73,000 units in its inaugural 7 days!  Congratz to Xtina for her latest top 10.  Welcome back.

  2. iamdiego June 25, 2018

    congrats Xtina! 20 yrs in the game.

    Lol, the only good songs on DEPRESSION are TWICE and UNLESS ITS WITH YOU. the rest is trash, or Luke warm at best like Maria for instance. Lol even Nas (NO-SIR Album) broke the top 5 leaving Straintina to settle for 6th place. ? meanwhile the Carter’s came in over 120k with a 9 track TRAP MIXTAPE/EP and no promo

      Stop calling Roach n Jigabbo’s album a “mixtape”. It is an official album being sold at album price not mixtape price. Go get that gastric bypass. I’m afraid ur insulin levels are affecting your mental reasonings skills.

    • Richard 86 June 25, 2018

      Yet Christina has sold more albums than Beyonce as a solo artiste ?

  4. DIABETES UNBOTHERED June 25, 2018

    Everything metacritic score: 80

    SUMMER 4/5
    APESHIT 4/5
    BOSS 3/5
    NICE 3/5
    713 4/5
    FRIENDS 3/5

    Overall: 4/5 = 80%

      Shut your fat diabetes a s s up! It still flopped and didn’t hit #1 h0£!!

      • DIABETES UNBOTHERED June 25, 2018

        This release was intended to shut down Xtina and Nas release. It did just that. Sounds like a success to me. Jays last album only sold 400k after the 1 mill givaway. Jayz past his commercial prime thanks to Tidal and still out sold straintina and Nas after their long extended break. ?

    • ??? June 25, 2018

      lmao sorry fatso, metacritic don’t mean sh*t since roach FLOPPED harder than Xtina’s lotus album lmfaooooo ???

      • DIABETES UNBOTHERED June 25, 2018

        Lol Lotus debuted top 7 ?

  5. gina June 25, 2018

    Not bad. At least she didn’t flop as hard as the carters did.

    • DIABETES UNBOTHERED June 25, 2018

      The Carter’s actually managed to crack the top 5. Xtina hasn’t seen the top 5 in 8 years ?. And The Carter’s shall remain #UNBOTHERED

      • XSh June 25, 2018

        She technically didn’t flop. Those were her projected sales, and that’s what she sold. Beyonce and Jay Z always see such high numbers, debuting at number one with respectful figures. Yet, this time arpund they didn’t sell shyt. If it wasnt for streaming they wouldn’t have debuted at number 4 or 5 lol.

      • DIABETES UNBOTHERED June 25, 2018

        Actually streaming HURT their sells. Tidal ALWAYS sell less then they would have. This is 4 day sells vs 7 day sells for everyone else. So far the everything EP sold 100+k PURE SELLS no promo required

    • Caleb June 25, 2018

      Well she sold less so I guess she kind of did

  6. DIABETES UNBOTHERED June 25, 2018

    xtinas HIGHEST selling album this decade was BIONIC which sold 330k and got a 53 score on METACRITIC. Lol the jokes write themselves ??️

    • Jasmine (The Real Jasmine) June 25, 2018

      Why are u so pressed on Christina? You probably weigh 4x what she does. Get a life. I guarantee she don’t know u and would not want to know a troll like u.

  7. Caleb June 25, 2018

    So why do people keep saying she sold more than the Carters when she didn’t?

    • DIABETES UNBOTHERED June 25, 2018

      Wishful thinking… The real test is the self titled album sold more in 3 hours than Liberation in 1 week including streaming stats. ?(80k). If Everything had a full 7 days on iTunes it most likely would have gone #1 but the Carter’s got cocky. They needed sum humble pie anyway and I’m sure it tasted good ??

  8. Teflon Boy June 25, 2018

    The reality is that The Carters have been in audiences faces 24/7 so this joint album should’ve been a home run. Meanwhile Xtina has been MIA for 6 years. The fact she sold mildly less than a couple frequently heralded as modern ‘Music Royalty’ is reason to say ‘Kudos Xtina, she held her own’.

    • Richard 86 June 25, 2018

      Exactly! Beyonce and ape s*** are always in people’s faces vs Christina who have not toured in 10 yrs and took a 6 yr break from the music scene yet she managed to pull in some decent figures.

    • SdotB June 30, 2018

      How did she sell mildly less when she sold 68K compared to The Carters’ 120K?? I fail to see the similarities in those two numbers…

  9. Mntq June 25, 2018

    Wow I thought Christina would have at least sold 95k to 100k . She had a ticket bundle and only did 68k something is not right here. She needs to do more promotion perform on Ellen, maybe do a deluxe version. Christina needs better producers and management. I’m still rooting for Christina she’s truly talented.

  10. Mr.m June 26, 2018

    ALBUM OF THE YEAR. Period.
    They tried to outshine her
    THEY TRIED IT…. but they fail
    Welcome back, the voice.

  11. JOHNVIDAL June 26, 2018

    The sales number itself is no bad. But how so low in the list? Number 6? Who is selling more this week? Is this summer week strong in sales for some reason?

  12. CJ June 26, 2018

    So, long story short, This is Floptina’s worst selling album.. lol Nobody has cared about her since the 90’s yet she thinks she’s this “legendary, Iconic” artist, Homegirl is straight up delusional.. lmao
