Spotify Early 2000's

Imagine another dimension where streaming was around when Britney first started her career and just as important to the charts as it is now :crying1:

BOMT + OIDIA would have racked up 15 years of streams by now, the numbers would be huge, possibly a #1 for Oops :crying1:

Her radio ban in '01-'04 would have been less impactful, possible another #1 for Slave, Toxic, etc. :crying1:

She would be so much more statistically successful :crying1:

She would have pulled in Rihanna numbers :crying1:

Agreed.

Even if you insist on buying digitally, use FLAC at least.

Only audiophiles care about bit rate. The general public isn't going to pay more for a quality difference they won't even notice *cough cough TIDAL*

Most people stream on Spotify for free and most people only stream at Normal Quality (96kbps) but they do have the option for 320kbps which is what I stream at.

So do you also stream Britney music or do you import it onto your iTunes in Apple Lossless and play it back from there? 

I do stream a lot because it does take up less space than a cd. When i was younger i always bought cds because streaming obviously wasnt a thing so i guess its nostalgia for me aswell, but now i only buy the cd version of albums if i really like it and obviously i buy britney's albums. It is definitely more convienent to stream and i understand why it has overtaken physical releases :mhm: i rip the cds and listen to the mp3s because if im gonna buy music i like having the cd as a back up. Although i will play the cds on my stereo from time to time

That's exactly what I do, I'll only buy an album if I really love it just to collect but I rarely ever actually play the disc itself, I'll just stream it. 

I guess my point is imagine the numbers Britney would have pulled if people who don't really care for her still streamed her music.

Yeah it would be interesting to see what numbers she would've pulled. The only thing i prefer about the way music was consumed in the 00s is that it seemed more like an event for your fave to release a song/video/album. Now people just tweet and thats it a no.1, its kinda boring and lifeless nowadays

Buying a cd will always be better than streaming or buying an mp3 :tbh: 

Yes, this.

I miss the days were people went out and bought CDs. I still miss the Virgin mega store. It was such a good feeling. Now everything is digital and going to Target or Walmart to buy Cds is a depressing experience... No variety at all.

I personally buy CD's to have an actual physical copy, and to look at album artwork. NOT when my fav Artist uses screenshots from a video I've only seen half of...once.

God, Glory is the first Britney Album  I haven't physically purchased! My first was "Oops" on Cassette, then "Baby" on CD, then "Oops" CD, and on.

Yes she would have had better stats on the Hot 100 (higher peaks, more chart hits ect) but she wouldn't have had a lot of album sales though.

I didn't even think about this.

The number of streams would have balanced out the lack of sales. She would probably end up with the same numbers she has now, omg that's kind of crazy

You have to go to a real music store. I'm in LA so thankfully there's still a few around and buying a physical album is still an experience. :saycheese:

I live in Florida, about an hour and half north of Miami and we have no music stores around here. It's so sad.

But yeeesss I love going to LA and honestly, it's one of my favorite cities in the US.
