So….. with the return of Britney Spears to the game, radio and the charts the public has begun understandably comparing her to resident Queen B…Beyonce. As of right now it’s pretty much a draw. Where one lacks the other excels: Britney’s a better dancer, while Beyonce can sing circles around her…

There albums both shifted 505,000 copies in there first chart weeks but the metrics have changed since then… Below are the current chart positions for both divas:

Beyonce:

“I am Sasha Fierce” – #9 Billboard 200

“Single Ladies: – #30 Billboard Hot 100

“Halo” – #28 Billboard Hot 100

“Diva” – #38 Billboard Hot 100


Britney Spears:

“Circus <album>” – #22 Billboard 200

“If U Seek Amy” – #26 Billboard Hot 100

“Circus <single>” – #17 Billboard Hot 100

Both Beyonce and Britney’s first singles have dropped out of the top 50, “If I were a Boy” and “Womanizer”

As you can see Beyonce’s album is still selling strong at #9 despite backlash from some fans and bits of the media. Britney’s album is way back at 22 but her singles are performing much better then Beyonce’s…”If U Seek Amy” is probably going to crack the top 10, if not become her next #1 hit, while I don’t see “Diva” or “Halo” performing those feats for Beyonce…

Both divas are on the road right now. Britney is packing arenas and selling out stadiums all over the states while Beyonce cleans house in Canada and Europe. At the end of the year I’ll be able to see more finalized sales for there albums, know what there singles did and the concert revenue can be tallied. Can’t wait! 

FYI:

Jamie Foxx and Keyshia Cole’s albums debuted on the same day but he’s selling well…right under Beyonce at #10 while Keyshia is chilling at #26. Maybe she come harder with this next album…

Kanye sits happy at number #18 after “808s and Heartbreak” debuted way back in November, very good Mr. West!

Kelly Clarkson has the number one album in the country with “All I Ever Wanted” seizing the top spot!

The Dream lands at #4 after debuting at #2 a couple of weeks ago…

Rihanna proves to be perhaps the biggest chart diva since Mariah Carey at #49 after 144 long weeks on the chart…going on 3 years.  4 or 5 number one singles off “Good Girl Gone Bad” alone. That’s a BAD chick right there!
