Saw it on a site and thought it was very interesting. I already imagined that 'Come On Over' should be the best selling female album on United States as it is worldwide, but i was very surprised to see the lack of albums by Madonna, Céline Dion, Barbra Streisand etc. Which of these albums are your favorites? Which albums you thought that were featured here but aren't? 

 

I really stan the Shania, Britney and Jewel albums on this list :yaskween:

This really is interesting! Shania isn't really a big deal over here in Australia so I'm always surprised to see how popular she is overseas. It's also interesting that artists like Alanis, Jewel and the Dixie Chicks had so much success when they're barely heard of at all nowadays. I definitely thought that Madonna, Barbra and even Cher would have albums up there, but I guess they're all singles artists more than anything...Shoutout to Michelle Visage for having the second highest selling female album out there though! :cackle:

I actually looked a few days ago and the entire Cher discography has sold about 12 million copies in the US. I guess her only album that sold a lot was 'Believe', she has a lot of big failures on her catalogue that hasn't even entered the Billboard 200, so they probably sold almost nothing.

The fact that someone never heard 'Man! I Feel Like a Woman', "You're Still the One" or "From This Moment On" really scares me because these songs still play here a lot and they are like timeless hits for us :o Also not forgetting "You've Got a Way", which is a lowkey classic too!

:yaskween: I wonder if "Oops!" ever figured on that list before the Adele albums made it? I wouldn't be surprised tbh, we love a legend with two classics that outsold entire discographies :yeah:

I can't believe country music is even popular in Brazil... :shocked:Over here it has some fans but most people are more into alternative rock or indie folk kind of music than they are Shania. ;)

      Britney Spears announced on Sunday that she was engaged to her longtime boyfriend, Sam Asghari, three months after she told a Los Angeles judge that the conservatorship that has governed her life since 2008 was robbing her of the ability to make personal decisions.
      Brandon Cohen, a talent manager for Mr. Asghari, confirmed the engagement on Sunday night.
      “The couple made their longstanding relationship official today and are deeply touched by the support, dedication and love expressed to them,” Mr. Cohen said.
      Ms. Spears and Mr. Asghari each shared posts on Instagram to announce the engagement and to show off Ms. Spears’s ring.
      Mr. Cohen said a New York City jeweler, Roman Malayev, designed the ring.
      The engagement came just days after lawyers for Ms. Spears’s father, James P. Spears, wrote in a filing, “If Ms. Spears wants to terminate the conservatorship and believes that she can handle her own life, Mr. Spears believes that she should get that chance.”
      Ms. Spears gave a statement in her case in June, sharing that she had been drugged, forced to work and prevented from removing her birth control device.
      “I just want my life back,” Ms. Spears said. “I truly believe this conservatorship is abusive. I don’t feel like I can live a full life.”
      In her statement, Ms. Spears said that under the conservatorship she was not able to marry or have a child.
      “I want to be able to get married and have a baby,” the singer said. “I was told right now in the conservatorship I am not able to get married or have a baby.”
      In a highly contested legal battle, Ms. Spears in July filed to have her father removed from his role as conservator of her estate. Mr. Spears initially pushed back on the request, but announced last month that he would step aside and work with the court to assure “an orderly transition to a new conservator.”
      Mr. Asghari is an actor who has worked on a number of movies and TV shows, including the Showtime series “Black Monday.” He also works as a fitness trainer.
      Mr. Asghari told Men’s Health in 2018 that he met Ms. Spears in 2016 while working on a music video for her song “Slumber Party.”
      Ms. Spears has been married twice before. In 2004 she married Jason Alexander, a childhood friend, for 55 hours.
      Later that year, Ms. Spears married Kevin Federline, a backup dancer, actor and rapper; they have two sons. Ms. Spears filed for divorce from Mr. Federline in 2006.

      A few hours later, Britney posted this on Instagram, using the hashtag #FreeBritney for the first time:
      I'm so proud of her and hoping that her new layer will lead to some significant changes! Stay strong Britney!

      After 13 years of a conservatorship which she has said has left her "abused" and "traumatized", things are suddenly moving very very quickly in Britney Spears' efforts to reclaim her own independence.
      Just a week after a well-publicised court day in which she addressed the conservatorship publicly for the first time, and four days after her co-conservator Bessamer Trust officially quit, Britney has now made it known that she has no plans to return to music anytime soon.
      While she has yet to discuss her plans publicly, Britney's longtime manager Larry Rudolph (who, incidentally, she alluded to several times during her court hearing) has revealed the news in a letter he sent to Britney's co-conservators - her father Jamie Spears and the controversial Jodi Montgomery. As well as the bombshell about her retirement, Rudolph's letter also elicited other tidbits of information, including the fact that he hadn't talked to her in over two and a half years until today - an interesting point given that her record label has released several songs under her name in the last year alone.
      While we're somewhat reluctant to trust anything that Britney allegedly said that we're not hearing from her very own mouth, Britney's plans to retire haven't come as a total surprise to fans. Last year, her son Jayden stated in a controversial Instagram live that Britney may never return to performing; and in her own Instagram posts, Britney has said that was unsure if she would ever return to music again.
      Still, the news is a sad moment for Britney fans who have supported her recording career for the last 23 years.
