CSPC: Norah Jones Popularity Analysis

Spotify Mobile

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.

With Come Away With Me and Don’t Know Why singles averaging 70 million plays on Spotify, Norah Jones early hits are very solid streaming songs. Her appeal as an album artist is visible on her streams too as every track from her debut record amassed more than 7 million plays. Overall, all those play equal to nearly half a million album sales.

Feels Like Home contains a notable hit with Sunrise too, but the rest of its track list although not doing bad is on a lower level. On its side, Not Too Late saved the consistency too but utterly lacks a smash single with Thinking About You up to only half of the weakest Come Away With Me tracks.

  1. Hi dear MJD !!!

    Congratulations again for the website, well after just two days you have published CSPC analysis Norah Jones I’m really very fast, quick, I’d appreciate if you post every 2 days some singer or group, that would be great. I am very astonished by your great wisdom, you are an encyclopedia of music.
    Then as you did for the compilation Gold (ABBA) that you analyzed in detail for each country with the respective image or album cover; could you do the same with the three famous and important compilations of Beatles that are The Beatles 1 (One); 1962-1966 (The Red Album); 1967-1970 (The Blue Album) ? I would be really grateful !!!
    Then after Norah Jones what singer or group do you analyze ?

    1. Hello Anthony,

      I think that by now everyone got that you are expecting a Beatles analysis ;p

      It will take a couple of months from now to get everything done the good way. Norah Jones is an easy case with a few albums only and released recently with data fully accessible. It still takes roughly 3 hours per album to complete such a study, while I also have a job outside handling Chartmasters.org plus I’m off several weekends a year like this present one.

      From now I’ll be posting compilations breakdowns as soon as they topped the 10 million mark, which obviously includes the three Beatles sets you mentioned.

      In the pipeline is the Rolling Stones too as I want to post their article before the release of their new album. Drake, Alicia Keys, Robbie Williams and Sia will be coming too plus David Bowie and Whitney Houston for the 1 & 5th ‘anniversary’ of their passing. I do not have a frozen schedule as depending on the free time I have I’ll go for an artist with a softer or a deeper discography!

      1. Certain dear MJD, indeed I apologize to you for my insistence, I also ask why the Beatles are the artists who have sold more ‘discs of all but I do not think they sold more’ than a billion records as many sources cite type wikipedia. I think between albums and singles have sold about 500-600 million records. I believe that the Beatles will not be analyzed before Christmas.
        Then as I understand the next artists analyzed are the Rolling Stones. Did I guess ?
