Original Album Sales – Comments
2012 Trilogy – 950,000
2013 Kiss Land – 450,000
2015 Beauty Behind the Madness – 2,150,000
2016 Starboy – 600,000
Up to 4,15 million albums sold, I would be lying if I say The Weeknd album sales are record breaking. In our day and age, the more than 2 million units moved by Beauty Behind the Madness ain’t bad at all still. More interestingly is the fact all first albums are continuing to sell well which is a positive sign for the future.
Clearly, Starboy hasn’t sold 600,000 units to consumers up to today but this represents the number of copies already sold plus the ones shipped in anticipation for the holiday season. The album will quickly get there.
Of course, we won’t stop on those relatively low album sales as the artist has been making the news for his results on digital formats instead.
