The most clever exploitation of an artist with a dedicated fan base, that failed to truly cross over among the general public, is to divide his catalog in to various releases. That’s exactly what has been done with Justin Bieber and the release of several secondary versions of his earlier albums as can be seen in the table below.
How to understand this table? If you check for example My Worlds Acoustic live album line, those figures mean it sold 1,100,000 units worldwide. The second statistics column means all versions of all the songs included on this package add for just over 300 million streaming plays on Spotify as of August 9 2016.
The second part on the right of the table shows how many streams are coming from each original album, plus the share it represents on the overall package streams. Thus, streaming figures tell us My World’s songs are responsible for 81% of the My World Acoustic track list popularity, which means it generated 894,000 of its 1,100,000 album sales and so on for the other records.
