CSPC: Norah Jones Popularity Analysis

Norah Jones Career CSPC Results

So, after checking all figures, how many overall album sales equivalent each Norah Jones 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, Come Away With Me singles released in digital format sold the equivalent of 1,060,000 albums – 10,600,000 downloads with a 10 to 1 weighting.

As previously mentioned various acts fully replaced studio album sales with huge digital results. This is clearly not the case of Norah Jones. Her streaming results aren’t bad, but she hasn’t sold much digital singles nor compilations or live albums. All those facts put together mean her good catalog sales for Come Away With Me are not as good as we think since they are largely benefiting from the absence of competition from other formats or other LPs.

In spite of being the biggest seller in studio album form, her debut set ends up being topped by the main records of Eminem, Linkin Park and Lady Gaga among the 00s top eras. Don’t get me wrong, owning one of the five biggest records of the decade in the world is still absolutely amazing, an achievement even more impressive for a singer with Norah Jones style of music.

In total, her tally is 49,4 million equivalent album sales. As she is struggling more and more with her new records, she will be relying in her first album catalog appeal to break the 50 million barier.

As usual, feel free to comment and / or ask a question!

  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 ?
