MAROON 5 Career CSPC Results
So, after checking all figures, how many overall equivalent album sales each Maroon 5 album achieved? Well, at this point we barely need to do the addition of all figures defined all over this article!
In the following table, all categories display figures that way, e.g. in equivalent album sales. For example, Overexposed singles released in digital format sold the equivalent of 5,055,000 albums – 33,700,000 downloads with a 10 to 1,5 weighting.
As a reminder:
- Studio Album: sales of the original album
- Other Releases: sales of compilations generated thanks to the album
- Physical Singles: sales of physical singles from the album (ratio 3/10)
- Download Singles: sales of digital singles from the album (ratio 1,5/10)
- Streaming: equivalent album sales of all the album tracks (ratio 1/1500)
One-album wonders? Certainly not. If they looked that way barely five years ago, Maroon 5 impressively reversed the trend. More, in spite of never coming close to Songs About Jane big 17,8 million tally, all their albums proved a undeniable consistency at 7,5 million or more a piece.
If you check carefully figures, you will notice that since the drop seen in their second album sales in comparison to their smash debut set, the band’s popularity has been in the rise for four albums in a row, a pretty unique trajectory. Clearly, it will be very difficult to continue this trend with their upcoming album. Still, who guessed the band would be that big right now after Hands All Over started bombing?
So far, the group sold 53,8 million album equivalent units through all formats. As usual, feel free to comment and / or ask a question!
