Two major albums, but who will be victorious?!

Both Katy Perry and Fantasia are releasing albums this week and both are poised to do very well. Katy's Teenage Dreams is said to likely sell in the range of 170,000 to 200,000 by week's end. Fantasia's Back To Me is quoted at a range of 150,000 to 175,000, somewhat overlapping Katy's mark.

Who will pull ahead?

Our money is on Katy, with Fantasia pulling in a very close second.

What do U think?

    Fantasia can credit her publicity stunt suicide attempt for about half of those numbers. Bull shit. Katy's album is REALLY good - shockingly.



  2. 2

    Well it looks like the suicide attempt/publicity stunt worked



  3. 3

    well duh..Katy will.

    So tell me, did Fantasia swallow some pills for attention, new album, blah blah blah just saying. I mean, do we know for a fact that she was in any danger. Not as if Katy is gonna be around in 3 years, but I do believe she is a bit more deserving of a #1 album, at least for talents sake?



  5. 5

    They're both gross…



  6. 6

    Who cares about this Fantasia person



  7. 7

    What do I think, i think that pathetic attempt at a suicide is paying of for the ugly bitch. Well played bubbles, well played.



  8. 8

    Can I have a third choice?



  9. 9

    They could both be slammed by Usher, who also just released a new record. We'll see.

    ok so when xtina does 200k. its sooooo bad and she is a flop even after 4 yrs of hiatus and when your beloved katy does that she is the bomb. youre are so biased. Katy had 2 hit songs already and should really do alot more. Cali gurls came out like 3 months ago.

    Xtina's NMT came out days b4 the album release. F-you and f all the ppl you kiss $$ even though i like Cali Girls and Teenage dreams.

    Seriously, when was the last time Fantasia was relevant? Was she ever relevant?



  12. 12

    fuck katy perry i prefer the black one even tho i dont know who she is.



  13. 13

    katy perry is gonna kill fantasia. you can even compare the two. i havent even heard of fantasia in the past year



  14. 14

    Re: joliepitt007 – i agree with you but katy perrys got two hits california gurls and teenage dream.



  15. 15

    again, who?



  16. 16

    the one who can actually sing deserves to be #1. guess who that is.



  17. 17

    someone needs to cut those things off the sides of her head.



  18. 18

    Re: joliepitt007 – my thoughts exactly.



  19. 19

    Who?



  20. 20

    I can NOT stand Fantasia's annoying voice! It is like a cartoon character! It is NOT pleasant at all!! I never liked her on AI, I don't like her as a person and I certainly can't stand her voice!



  21. 21

    i'm not a fan of either but Katy will more then likely pull in the numbers.
    Sounds like the suicide attempt was for publicity here though :/



  22. 22

    Fantasia's suicide attempt was a PR stunt. Two days after the stunt she was caught filming for her reality show in a park with the married man she's been screwing. Less than two weeks after the suicide she hit the TV talk show circuit for a ton of appearances. To be so distressed that one attempts suicide is pretty damn serious, but there she was, ready to talk the world about it. She needed the sympathy to get her Christian fanbase to overlook her affair with a married man. She's a damn holy roller always-thankin'-God hypocrite and a dirty whore whose legs have been spread wide open since she was a teenager. Still, I hate Katy Perry even more. Fantasia for the #1 spot, but it's not gonna happen.



  23. 23

    so you just have a fuck a married man and fake a suicide attempt to become relevant again…



  24. 24

    Re: joliepitt007 – Ha-ha, I totally agree with you. X-Tina did pretty well I believe. Not her best, but she has outdone many artists with her true talent. Let's not forget she's been busy filming a movie.



  25. 25

    Furthermore, I didn't know Fantasia was still singing. LOL. I love Katy Perry and her songs are catchy. I hope she outsells Suicidal Fantasia.



  26. 26

    My money's on Fantasia! Go Fantasia! xD

    hahaha…and people are dumb if they buy Fantasia´s album because of that publicity stunt…
    what´s wrong with people, seriously?



  28. 28

    The world will be in a sad state for sure if has-been FATasia's album debuts at number 1. Who is buying that massive pie of shit???



  29. 29

    I don't want to buy these 2 cds



  30. 30

    I hope Katy's album is number one just so that Fantasia's album isn't.



  31. 31

    Too bad the ugly Magilla Gorilla Dominican Fantasia Barrino's wasn't real. Katy Perry all the way!



  32. 32

    I have never heard a Fantasia song.



  33. 33

    katy perry is only expected to sell 100,000 thousand more copies than christina's BIONIC at the most. and ur not calling her a flop? u kiss ass, FUCK U!



  34. 34

    Usher should be #1



  35. 35

    excuse me? I would hardly call fantasias album a major album……?



  36. 36

    Re: AttFinch – is that a trick question? neither.

    Both. Crap.



  38. 38

    Well.
    Katy Perry didn't have to screw a married man & then try to kill herself (she maybe giving Dina Lohan a run for her money for bad celeb mom), to get album sales. When you turn on the radio which of these two do you hear MUSIC coming from.

    so Christina Aguilera can debut in the same margin, after her what- 4 year hiatus, not being in the limelight like Katy or in the middle of a scandal like Fantasia, but she's a "flop" & they aren't? I don't like either of these singers but if we are going for talent I'd say Fantasia deserves it more, but these are sales numbers & chart spots so talent doesn't mean a damn thing. Also, whoever believes Fantasia actually tried to kill herself, I've got some land I'd like to sell you! She got caught with a married man, a new album about to come out, she HAD to do something to redeem herself in the eyes of the public to help her reputation & to not kill her album before it even came out. Come on now.



  40. 40

    There are actually people who would buy a Fantasia album? That's news to me..as is the fact that she even is coming out with an album.



  41. 41

    fantasia wishes she looked as good as t-boz circa 1995. and her voice makes me wish i were deaf.



  42. 42

    Re: perez12345 – it's only a trick question if your tone deaf and stupid.



  43. 43

    Katy perry will sell more cause nobody else in the world know of fantasia. Only americans. And the whole world loves katy perry :D



  44. 44

    Acorn head in a black body suit vs. trussed up voluptuos breasts - no contest.



  45. 45

    the suicide king



  46. 46

    RANDY ROGERS BAND!!!!

    funny how fantasia's "suicide" attempt comes before her album drops. I had a friend who committed suicide and i know it isn't something you consider one day and then are fully recovered the next. so i find it very hard to believe that this was a "serious suicide attempt." you don't try to kill yourself then the next day talk about how you are so much better and healthier. this whole stunt is unfair to families who have had to deal with REAL suicidal relatives and it's unfair to fantasia's poor daughter. there is clearly something mentally unstable about fantasia and she should be in therapy, not on every talk show. i'm sick of hearing about her "situation." I hear more about fame-whores in the news than i do about our american soldiers and other real tragedies around the world. all katy perry needs is her music to sell albums, not these shameless and sick publicity stunts. "the media is the message," so what sort of messages are we sending to people by focusing on fantasia and her pathetic need to publicity?



  48. 48

    fantasia has a beautiful voice. i wish her only the best. 2 many judgmental sinners leaving comments on here they should all look in the mirror and move to the left..



  49. 49

    Katy Perry definitely deserves the number one spot on the billboard charts. Her new cd is stupendous. Each song is catchy and brilliant. :D

    I do think fantasia stage it for album sales but the dumbest thing said on the ccmments is katy should the number one have due to her talent! Um what talent? there's better high school vocalist what the hell is wrong with you people? Look we as fans should know what goes on is none of our business because we don't like people in ours. As long as the artist is doing quality music then who cares. Katy is prettier and her videos are hella funny but talent wise fantasia is beyond katy
