Streaming Sales

Below table lists Spotify streaming of all songs from the five albums we are studying. The Comprehensive Streaming is reached by multiplying Spotify figures by 68/26. In fact, as shown in IFPI 2015 Report, there were 68 million paying subscribers to all streaming platforms by the end of 2015. While the exact count of Spotify paying subscribers by the end of 2015 is unknown, that figure reached 20 million in June 2015 and 30 million in March 2016, thus an estimated 26 million is used as of the end of 2015.

The equivalent album sales is the division of the comprehensive streaming figure by 1500 as it is now the norm in the new industry model.

The original Frozen album is made of two main sections. The first one contains 8 new songs, from Let It Go to Fixer Upper. Each of them has 19 million streams or more. This showing turns out to be even more impressive when we consider album tracks aren’t available for stream since many months. Obviously, the leading song of the album is Let It Go which cracks 250 million when combining Demi Lovato and Idina Menzel versions.

The second section of the record is made of 22 Christopher Beck score instrumentals. All of them are over 3 million streams, once again an impressive result for such material.

In total, all songs together add for 1,1 million equivalent album sales when converted. Guess what? We aren’t done with the album streaming results.

  1. Hi dear MJD !!!

    Congratulations for the website and also for CSPC analysis on Frozen Soundtrack.
    Then I’m curious to know after CSPC analysis on The Rolling Stones, which singer or group you will analyze. I hope you will answer me soon !!!

    1. Just wait and see!

      Nothing is frozen as of now, it will depend on my available time and what I’m willing to do when that available moment comes. I fully handle Chartmasters.org during my free time because I love studying charts and sales, I don’t want to commit on artists and dates as it would start looking more like a job rather than an entertainment and I would hate that!

  2. Hi everyone!

    Here are the 4 Frozen’s tracks that have generated the most sales:
    1 2013 Let It Go [Frozen] – 7,220,000
    2 2013 For The First Time In Forever [Frozen] – 1,620,000
    3 2013 Do You Want To Build A Snowman [Frozen] – 1,580,000
    4 2013 Love Is An Open Door [Frozen] – 1,100,000

    Like you probably remember, particularly if you have a children, “Let It Go” was an enormous hit! As a reminder, here are the biggest track for some recent artists:
    – Adele – Hello [25, 2015] – 15,730,000
    – Lady Gaga – Bad Romance [The Fame / The Fame Monster, 2009] – 4,700,000
    – Taylor Swift – Love Story [Fearless, 2008] – 4,560,000
    – Ed Sheeran – Thinking Out Loud [x, 2014] – 4,250,000
    – Bruno Mars – Just the Way You Are [Doo-Wop & Hooligans, 2010] – 3,730,000
    – Rihanna – We Found Love [Talk That Talk, 2011] – 3,290,000
    – Katy Perry – Dark Horse [Prism, 2013] – 3,260,000
    – Justin Bieber – Sorry [Purpose, 2015] – 3,070,000
    – Drake – One Dance [Views, 2016] – 2,800,000

    Adele is again an exception! All the other tracks, which are real hits, cannot compete with “Let It Go”.

    If you have any questions / remarks, do not hesitate to let a comment!
