The Predictions Are In! Christina Aguilera’s ‘Liberation’ Set To Sell…

Published: Tuesday 19th Jun 2018 by Sam

Christina Aguilera ended a six year hiatus from the charts with the release of ‘Liberation.’

Her first body of work since 2012’s ill-fated ‘Lotus,’ the set was led by focus single ‘Fall In Line’ with Demi Lovato alongside taster cuts ‘Accelerate,’ ‘Twice,’ and ‘Like I Do.’ 

With the set being showered with critical acclaim, how is it performing commercially?

The first week estimates are in. So, the answer awaits after the jump…

Per Hits Daily Double, Xtina will comfortably open in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 with the following:

[Sales Plus Streaming]
[Pure Sales]



All things considered (those “things” being a lack of Billboard hit, duration of hiatus, and industry sales plight), Aguilera has held up well.

It’s worth mentioning that she’s benefitting from a ticket-bundle with her upcoming intimate tour. Smartly.

Go her, though. The album is exquisite and deserves the applause it’s receiving.

Your thoughts?

  2. Erica June 19, 2018

    But is this counted with her concert ticket bundles?

  3. Liam June 19, 2018

    Well I heard the album today and I’m impressed… I guess once she keeps promoting it she will be fine

  4. Bad B**** June 19, 2018

    After all that promo??? Lol this washed up hoee been flopping since last decade. I cant lol

    • whut June 19, 2018

      Just stop. She didn’t start promo for the album until days before it was released. You wanna talk about flopd go talk to the carters.

      • whut June 19, 2018


      • Bad B**** June 19, 2018

        Didnt she release 3 songs prior to the release of her album..was she not on carpool karaoke? Billboard awards,? Stop..the carters will be fine

    • Teflon Boy June 20, 2018

      This is what you call being willfully ignorant just to be able to post a shady comment.

  5. The Wig Snatcher June 19, 2018

    So Bey and Jay (combined) only sold less than 15k physical units more than Xtina??? So much for being a power couple anymore. LOL

    • Bad B**** June 19, 2018

      Dont speak too soon

    • Caleb June 19, 2018

      There aren’t any “physical units”’of Bey and Jay album so what you’re saying makes no sense.

      • XYZ June 19, 2018

        Buying on iTunes counts as physical @caleb

      • Caleb June 20, 2018

        No XYZ. It doesn’t. It counts as a traditional album sale yes. But it’s still a DIGITAL album sale. Physical by definition must be a physical copy.

    • DanYiel Iman June 19, 2018

      Funny they’re both more talented so your hate does nothing in the beginning anyways!!

      • ??? June 19, 2018

        lmao bug bye, Xtina has more talent in her pinky finger than roach has in her entire overrated flopped body lmfaooooo ???

    • RealNegro June 19, 2018

      How many days are counted for xtina versus the Carters? Ill wait!

  6. Meteorite June 19, 2018

    So if her tour tickets weren’t included weren’t included, would her numbers be lowers?

    • Caleb June 19, 2018


    • XYZ June 19, 2018

      Depends on. Maybe not much, as people who have bought the tickets would have bought the album anyway

  7. Luchi June 19, 2018

    The album is a actually good. She released the wrong damn single. Great album tho. Vocals on point.

    • Jasmine (The Real Jasmine) June 19, 2018

      Which single was wrong? She had 3 singles.

      • XYZ June 19, 2018

        There are no real singles on that album. What i don’t understand is that she just promoted fall in line and not the album as a whole by singing different songs. I love her singing fighter, but girl, you‘re not promoting stripped and if you perform three songs only, then perform the new ones

  8. Caleb June 19, 2018

    Honestly considering how albums are doing these days and how long she’s been out of the music scene seemingly, these sales aren’t bad (though not extraordinary).

  9. Jasmine (The Real Jasmine) June 19, 2018

    She has not connected with the younger generation. Her physical sales are good but her streams should be higher. I think she should extend her fan base. Targeting more than one audience would have helped.

  10. DIABETES UNBOTHERED June 19, 2018

    Thank you KING QUEEN JAY & BEY ? for effortlessly shutting down NAS and XTINA (album eras before they even start ?lol)… not that either of them needed much help… both nas and xtina have ZERO presence in music outside of their very small NEVER GROWING Fanbase. thats the difference cause even NON FANS check for Hov and Bey cause their music is bold expressive and most importantly stand out ABOVE the pack which is why they can actually do big ww tours NOT just intimate venues. POOR STRUGGLE TINA ? ?️

    • GARBAGE June 19, 2018

      Too bad Jay & Bey’ new album is trash. Maybe next time, Jan!

    • whut June 19, 2018

      You might want to sit. 5 Seconds of Summer is on track to shut down jay and bey. Effortlessly.

    • Jasmine (The Real Jasmine) June 19, 2018

      You are dumb as bricks Diabetes. Xtina’s numbers would have been the same with no competition moron. Same goes for Nas’s album because he used Kenyatta to produce and most of his older fans would not buy an album with only 7 tracks at full pric. This has nothing to do with roach and her ugly husband that was screwing her and other women when they were underage.

    • Richard 86 June 19, 2018

      Yes the Carters talking about their bootleg marriage,illuminati given wealth as well as Beyonce riding jay z d..k is pure art isn’t it? FYI Jay z looks like ape s*** literally.

      • Jasmine (The Real Jasmine) June 19, 2018

        I agree. He does look like ape sh!t literally. Apes look better than him. At least apes look kind despite their strength whereas Jay-z looks like Ape Sh|t with a permanent resting b|tch face.

  11. SMH June 19, 2018

    These are respectable numbers after a 6 year hiatus and next to no promo. Now selling only 120k after a surprise gimmick and a previous album that “sold”over 600k first week only 2 years ago is what you call a disaster.

    • Jeans June 19, 2018

      ???????true tea

    • Mr.m June 19, 2018

      No lies! the monkeys flopped.

  12. Bey June 19, 2018

    The most underrated artist! She is an amazing singer!

  13. DIABETES UNBOTHERED June 19, 2018

    In other words nobody Bothered to stream this hot garbage lol and id hardly call 73 critically acclaimed. more like generally possitive which it deserved a 65 at best.

    • whut June 19, 2018

      Just like nobody is bothering to stream or buy Everything is Garbage since 5 Seconds of Summer is on course to end them.

  14. NBJ June 19, 2018

    Liberation is still my album of the year. I hope she releases videos for Like I do & Deserve!!!

  15. QUEEN. June 19, 2018

    Those lip injections though. She was cute during her ‘Stripped’ sessions.

  16. Pat June 19, 2018

    It’s a good album regardless!

  17. Fifi June 19, 2018

    Such a good album, pipe is a hit! Terrible release so far but she shouldn’t give up on the album!

  18. ??? June 19, 2018

    lmao her numbers are just fine. roach still hasnt matched xtina’s total album sales anyway, and she never will now that Everything Is Tanking has FLOPPED despite her petty little desperate surprise drop gimmick lmfaooooooooooooooooooooooo

    • DIABETES UNBOTHERED June 19, 2018

      STRAINTINA and Bey are the same age yet Bey sold 35 MILL SOLO plus 40 million in DC compared to GARBAGE TINA whom sold 45 million with zero longevity. thats 75+ million vs 40 mill. then add the HITS GRAMMYS AND TOURS and youll see bey on top. Plus beys next solo album will probly sh*t on Lemonade while Xtinas career is on a steady DECLINE. Xtina had to bundle just to sell that much

    • DIABETES UNBOTHERED June 19, 2018

      *edit* STRAINTINA and Bey are the same age yet Bey sold 35 MILL SOLO plus 45 million in DC3 compared to GARBAGE TINA whom sold 40 million with zero longevity. thats 75+ million vs 40 mill. then add the HITS GRAMMYS AND TOURS and youll see bey on top. Plus beys next solo album will probly sh*t on Lemonade while Xtinas career is on a steady DECLINE.

      • ??? June 19, 2018

        lmao stop clinging bug, floponce still sold LESS albums than xtina, so that makes her a LESSOR to xtina. You don’t get to cling to her sales as one of TLCs maids just because she FLOPPED lmfaooooo ???

      • Red Pen June 19, 2018

        According to wikipedia

        As of 2014, in the United States alone, Aguilera has sold 17.9 million albums
        As of June 2016, in the United States, Beyoncé has sold 17.2 million albums as a solo artist and a further 17 million albums as part of Destiny’s Child.

  19. DIABETES UNBOTHERED June 19, 2018

    Most of xtina money comes from Being a JUDGE lol christina aguilera net worth $130 MILLION. MEANWHILE BEY = $500 MILLION

    • Jasmine (The Real Jasmine) June 19, 2018

      Diabetes net worth = 20 dollars.

      Diabetes moral worth = -340

      Burger King, McDonalds, and KFC got all his money. Illuminati puppet Beyonce got his soul. He has no value or purpose left.

    • Helios June 19, 2018

      Please b*tch go eat some triple cheeseburger.. beyonce has released the double of the albums maybe the triple u cant just compare it… that apeshit is officially a flop even if im sure they gonna try to increase the numbers by saying they sold 500k on tidal their very own flop platform

    • ??? June 19, 2018

      lmfaooooo the lies you roaches tell. roach is not worth 500 anything lmfaooo, and she made her money being pimped by both her daddy and camel…and she still FLOPPED lmfaooooo ???

  20. mntq June 19, 2018

    These numbers obviously does not include the CD bundle. Her total with SPS is estimated at 75,000 your missing a zero

    • Erica June 19, 2018

      That’s what I’m thinking

  21. Mr.m June 19, 2018

    Aftet all THE MONKEYS fake hype
    Xtina sold only 10k less than them?
    Loool I wonder if they release their album in a traditional way.. it probably will sell less than 13k lmao flopppppp
    Come through xtina! Keep promoting that album is fire!

    • RealNegro June 19, 2018

      1 week versus 1 day of sales and streams! Remember Tidal numbers aren’t included. lol

      • JayD June 19, 2018

        Right they really think Bey and Jay finna do those numbers lol i cant wait til the real numbers come out .. but u kno they gonna say oh tidal inflated numbers lol lol

      • Mr.m June 19, 2018

        The lies of it al looooool
        Liberation was released 15/6
        Everything is a flop released 16/6
        That is a ONE day apart honey
        Stop crying and deal with ur flop.

      • RealNegro June 19, 2018

        Mr. m I ain’t your honey ! Stop talking like Ms. m and start conversing like your name Mister.

    • QUEEN. June 19, 2018

      Eeee…lets ask Britney how much dat that last album sold, girl bye!

  22. Luis June 19, 2018

    She’ll be ok if she releases the right singles. “Maria” Pipe” or “deserved”. Otherwise is a waste of a good album. Hope she keeps promoting and I think she’ll be rocking the grammys. So that would be perfect.

  23. Datredd23 June 19, 2018

    Her worldwide sales should be good waiting for all the numbers to come in

  24. Theman June 19, 2018

    These are good numbers for such a long hiatus without a hit. She just sent her single to radio which was silly. But this is an album that she can work with. Her other two singles were album tracks. They weren’t official singles.

  25. justafan June 19, 2018

    haha so low! even with ticket-bundles with her upcoming intimate tour….

  26. Keith June 20, 2018

    Hopefully, Liberation will be a slow burner. There are some “hits” on the record, Christina just needs to keep consistent with promotion/performances. She might try, as some have suggested, a multi-format approach.I would give “Pipe” and the Goldlink track an urban push, remix Accelerate for the dance clubs….

  27. LegendTina4eva June 20, 2018

    Xtina has been in the music business for over 20 years, her last actual single and album promotion plus tour was over 10 years ago, her last album release was 6 years ago and her not doing anything for it. Xtina is doing really GOOD with #Liberation⁠ ⁠ and I’m so proud. LONGEVITY!

  28. Teflon Boy June 20, 2018

    This is respectable, Xtina is well aware what her diminishing numbers and absence would have had on this era. Which is why she’s entered into it with different focus and willingness to visit radio, TV shows etc. and promote. Her goal this era is to remind audiences that A. She still has a voice and B. That she can still make relevant artistic strides. Both of which she’s done. C. Her next goal is to ensure the masses hear more of Liberation so they can build a fuller picture of the album, which hopefully she will do via the tour.

    • Richard 86 June 20, 2018

      I agree. This era is basically her reintroducing herself and getting reconnected with her fans. After the tour she need to drop another album within 2yrs and stick along the hip hop and r n b side like liberation.

  29. tesha June 20, 2018

    Great Album,!

  30. mickey June 21, 2018

    Other then a few phenoms pretty much nobody is selling anymore. Even Shawn Mendes had bad first week sales numbers for someone so young and hot right now. The older artists like Christina usually sell less than younger artists so these numbers aren’t bad. Although this also includes her ticket bundels so I was expecting a bit more. Hopefully this doesn’t mean her tour isn’t selling.

  31. BigGirl June 25, 2018

    Hate Hate to be the kid here but britney spears glory sold more, even without tickets and flat promotion.

  32. Mario B Zelaya September 27, 2018

    She is amazing but always wonder why radio station don’t play her song she would have number 1 hits
