Watch Britney release B10 in 2021 with a huge world tour and 400k sales in its first week after 23 years in the business at 39 years old after all the positive publicity she’s getting Everyone i

If someone had told me in 2014 that in 6 years a Katy album would flop worse than any Xtina album I never would've believed it. 

I think it will sell between 150k and 200k and reach the #1 spot. There´s been a lot of visual promo and that's a good thing. also the album was promoted more than any Britney album here in Exhal

Its currently at #3  on iTunes and its only Saturday. Albums that don’t go number one on iTunes upon release typically stay at their position or fall :mattafact: I am going to guess Smile will debut with 65k in sales :katyclown:

Not Shocking.  The Album Isn’t Good.  

I honestly like the album and thought she had a chance of debuting at #1 but at this point I genuinely think she doesn't care about numbers anymore and just enjoys making music

I really, really hate to say it but I think she might have reached the end of her chart success days. I’ll support her no matter what but she has a lot of factors against her succeeding from here on out, none more so than the sexism/ ageism of the music industry meaning that she’ll be largely ignored now that she’s hitting her mid 30s. I only knew a few lucky female artists who haven’t had this treatment - Beyoncé (who, while not necessarily getting big chart hits, is still very much relevant and a big name), Madonna (at least until the MDNA era), Kylie Minogue (in the UK I think?? Definitely not past her mid 40s though sadly) and P!nk. Feel free to point out others I might have missed from recent years. I feel like Rihanna will definitely be considered “relevant” well into the future though. Britney is obviously relevant to us but musically, I’m not so sure if she is to the general public. That’s a discussion for another day though. 

On the other hand, she might pull a Madonna at some point with a big revival and new direction but... well.... Katy isn’t Madonna 😬 However I love her to pieces and as long as she’s happy, nothing else really matters. I imagine baby Daisy is her main priority now and rightly so.

Well The numbers are in. Industry experts and chart data predicts Folklore to stay at #1 for a fifth consecutive week, And Smile is expected to enter at #5 on the Billboard 200. Becoming Katy Perry's lowest charting album since her 2008 second studio Album "one of the boys" peaked at #9 on the Billboard 200.


I think I understand why. She released an album that literally had no demand. 


RIAA did an update. Teenage Dream us 8X Platinum. Plus all those singles saw several recerts as well.


Maybe Katy Perry reign is over. She is also turning 35 in October, so there's also that horrible ageism agenda playing against her as well as 30 became the new 40 in the music industry standards. 

I'm the hunter, you're the fox 🦊.

And the queen was the same age when she released Glory and it performed well for how she treated the album. Yes she did promo, but I mean KatyClown promoted the HELL out of this album and in a time where more people are paying attention to what’s going on online no one was here for her. Her time is over and she got her wish of not caring about being relevant anymore :riri: and not Spice Chino Madonna’s number one stan using ageism as an excuse when ha fave is still selling number one albums at her age

The I don’t care about charts anymore card is just an excuse. They knew this flop was going to happen so Katy just pulled this card in our faces and pretends she’s just this edgy artist who don’t care about success. Like bich, please?! You’re the best example of a fabricated pop star but people are leaving the traditional formula of the perfect pop star behind so I expected this m\e/ss. I love Cry About It Later and Tucked, though! :akii:
