  1. Thank you for this article!

    Do you plan to study P!nk? Even though there’s no word about a new album, it would be interesting to see her CSPC results given she’s been active since 2000.

  2. Hi everyone!
    I reversed MJD’s formulas to determine the CSP for each track. We could interpret this as the CSP total “due to” a track, so its success.

    I have calculated the top 5 below:
    Song [Album] = CSP total (millions sales equivalent)

    Thinking Out Loud [x] = 4,25
    Photograph [x] = 2,61
    The A Team [+] = 1,96
    I See Fire [x] = 1,87
    Don’t [x] = 1,68

    4.25 millions equivalent sales is quite big. To give an idea, it’s more than any track released by Rihanna (please see here: http://chartmasters.org/2016/06/cspc-rihanna-popularity-analysis/#comment-1348).

    If you have any question/remarks about the method/calculation I used to obtained these numbers, I will be pleased to answer you.
    Tony
