LEAST FAVOURITE SINGLE SURVIVOR! ROUND 34

Rules are simple.

Simply vote for your LEAST FAVOURITE Single in the poll. The one with the most votes leaves this round and progresses no further!

---
BUH-BYE:



Into the top 5 we go and starting us off is the forever underrated, under appreciated, self empowering anthem 'Stronger'. It went on to be a big top 10 hit here in the UK and I believe it did well in America too! It served as the 3rd single to be taken from her huge 2nd album. Had it not been released Christmas week and saved for January, I genuinely believe it would have been a top 3 hit, or perhaps even a surprise number 1 like BTMYH was. But it's OK. It was still a hit and in January, after falling to #14, it somehow managed to climb back into the top 10! Not sure why it received a random boost, maybe promo? But whatever it was, I'm here for it. One of my all time favourite Britney singles.

Don't worry. I've put a message in the thread. laugh.gif I wanna get away from that sort of rubbish in these topics. I get enough of that crap on Twitter/social media lol.

Thank you for not biting! I know it must've been hard for you, so I really appreciate it. wub.gif

Stronger peaked and entered at #7 in the UK on Sunday 10th December 2000, so it was released two weeks ahead of the Christmas week! [07-11-14...] - #14 in Christmas week. It climbed to #10 in the Sunday 31st December 2000 chart. I'm not sure how much promotion she did over here for the single, but she performed it on CD:UK (not sure which week it was aired in though).

Stronger was the 123rd best selling single of the year, with 127,000 copies sold in 4 weeks. Her weekly sales for week 2 & week 3 are unknown unfortunately, but probably somewhere in the 30,000-39,999 region in both weeks. So even though she climbed 4 places and back into the Top 10, her sales probably more than halved in that week, to 17k. #8, #10, #12 & #13 from the week before experienced worse declines than Stronger.

drama.gif at Who Let The Dogs Out outselling her in Stronger's release week. Not sure if that's better or worse than Kylie being narrowly outsold by The Tweenies a week later? laugh.gif

If Stronger had been scheduled for January, I think she may have managed a #4 or #5 peak with it instead - but I assume it'd have been on weaker sales than the 44k she sold to reach #7 in December. I'm not convinced she'd have pulled off another 'Born To Make You Happy' scenario and taken it all the way to #1. The first two #1s of 2001 were Rui Da Silva on 68,473, and then Jennifer Lopez on 67,879, so quite a lot stronger (lol~) than Stronger's first week.

It's certainly a shame that Stronger was her first single to miss the Top 5 here. Although obviously her single after that did a lot worse and became her first single to miss the Top 10, so the Oops! era took a downturn with each single release. DLMBTLTK entered and peaked at #12. 25,000 copies were required to make it into the Top 10 that week, but it's not known how much she'd have sold for #12... maybe 20k? Curiously it was her first single since '...Baby One More Time' to be released with a CD1 & CD2 (every single in between only had 1 CD), so that really was quite the flop for her!

YES. GIVE ME THE STATS *.*

I misread polyhex. They do "Week Ending" and I took it as "Week Beginning" haha.

That's interesting to see though! Thanks as ever! heart.gif

This top four is so strong now ohmy.gif I plumped for 'Oops...! I Did It Again' as it may have an iconic video and spoken middle 8, but has the weakest chorus of those left.
