MAROON 5 Career CSPC Results
So, after checking all figures, how many overall album sales equivalent 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 3,370,000 albums – 33,700,000 downloads with a 10 to 1 weighting.
One-album wonders? Certainly not. If the 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 16,7 million tally, all their albums proved undeniable consistency at 6,5 million or more a piece.
If you check carefully figures, you will notice Hands All Over will soon top It Won’t Be Soon Before Long since it is going much stronger in digital and streaming fields. Why does it matter? Because it will mean that since the drop seen in their second album sales in comparison to their smash debut set, the band 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 47,3 million album equivalent units through all formats. Will that sixth record push the total to 50 million before the end of the year? With their catalog still going strong too, I would take the risk to bet on the ‘yes’.
As usual, feel free to comment and / or ask a question!
