* I am picking FF era as that was the last "era" we've had with multiple singles, and the previous eras were quite successful *

I thought it would do well but didn't: Till The World Ends. When I heard the first 10 seconds (I don't know if you guys remember that 10 seconds release they did of all Ff songs) I thought "this is a banger and will stay relevant forever, it's the new toxic" and then it just wasn't this massive hit that destroyed careers

The opposite: I wanna go. I felt like "yeah okay s'alright I guess", and I still hear it on the radio sometimes :cheese:

Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know is one of the best ballads sadly it didn't chart :crying1:

Make Me... did quite well on charts tbh. But it's definitely not my favourite from Glory tho :ehum:

Also there was a time when I didn't understand why HIAM was number one. I really didn't like it but it grew on me and now it's one of my absolute favourites :lizzie:

I thought Criminal, Ooh La La, Perfume, Pretty Girls and Make Me would all do well but I guess I was deluded. I had a feeling when it was released Slumber Party would do little to nothing because RCA left things too late imo.

I thought Till the World Ends and I Wanna Go would have been hits in my country like they were in the US... nope :gloria:

Eh I guess, but it didn't do as well as I thought it was going to. I thought it would have gone top 10 in most countries :orangu:

OIDIA was pretty huge but I thought it would hit #1.

When I got ITZ, I didn't love Toxic. I wasn't excited that it was the 2nd single. I was shocked that everyone loved it lol.

I thought MP was going to do better, it's a great cover.

S&S was big but I thought it would hit #1.

I thought WB and MM were both going to do better. They were lead singles.

Honestly, I Always Though That Work ***** Would Not Do Well.  But Then It Was Quite Remarkable Longevity Wise.  And Had A #12 Peak, Even Went Top 10 In The U.K. 

I Really Though That Songs Like Criminal, Ooh La La, And Slumber Party Would Have Been Huge, Groundbreaking Hits. The Only One Of The Three That Was Successful Was Criminal.

I thought that Slumber Party would've been a hit considering it had that tropical beat that was popular in 2015-2016

It also had one of her best videos ever!

Im ashamed at fans who didnt even bother buying or streaming it.

I definitely think it would've at least been in a top 20 hit

All of her singles released from ITZ I thought would have charted better. Britney was the biggest name in music at the time and none of her singles reflected that. MATM only peaked at #35 even though it featured Madonna coming off of their controversial VMA kiss. Everytime publicly addressed the JT breakup and only peaked at #15. Toxic is arguably one of her most widely known songs and still only reached #9. The whole era should have done better :sobbing:

Well, what's weird with Britney is that sometimes singles that don't do that well are still well known and love by the gp lol...

I can only talk since blackout because I started following her like 5/6 months before it came out so those albums are the only ones I knew the songs before they became singles. 

-Break the ice: I thought it would do great until we had the animated video and I lost all hopes.
-If U Seek Amy: I thought it would be a new iconic song like BOMT but nope, I was so excited for it to be a single...
-Till the world ends: I still think it's weird how it didn't end up being a classic Britney, they still force it on us on every tour lol
-Perfume: It such a beautiful and mature song, a nice follow up to everytime but didn't work I guess
-Slumber Party: everything was perfect, still don't understand why it wasn't a big hit. 

Other songs I knew after they were released as singles but was surprise years later that they're not huge hit:
-My prerogative, this is so damn good... 
-Toxic, so surprised it didn't went n°1

Perfume, the Sia hype and stuff, the demanded ballad that fans were asking for... I really don't understand why it didn't become a hit.

I thought Slumber Party would've been a bigger hit. It had an amazing video and the song was perfect for radio.

The gap between mm and sp were huge and  the era was killed after mm music video fiasco
