Shania Twain Career CSPC Results
So, after checking all figures, how many overall album sales equivalent has each Shania Twain album achieved? Well, at this point we don’t need to add up all of the figures defined in this article!
In the following table, all categories display figures that way, e.g. in equivalent album sales. For example, Come On Over singles released in digital format sold the equivalent of 600,000 albums – 6,000,000 downloads with a 10 to 1 weighting.
At current pace Come On Over will easily break the 45 million barrier in 2017. As impossible as this may seem, this isn’t enough to make it the most successful Canadian album released in November 1997. In fact, the album falls 1 million short of the Celine Dion blockbuster album Let’s Talk About Love.
Still, it is very easily the biggest Country album of all-time and one of the biggest overall. With more than 31 million combined, The Woman In Me and Up! are both huge albums too.
In total, she sold 79,9 million album equivalent units through all formats. With a mere three years between her worldwide breakthrough and her retirement, this is a superb result. Considering her low streaming sales and the split with Robert John “Mutt” Lange, things aren’t looking good for a possible return. However as Tony Tomjanovich once said, never underestimate the heart of a champion!
