CSPC: David Bowie Popularity Analysis

Streaming Part 5 – Let’s Dance… Just a bit

Album tracks from Let’s Dance aren’t as strong as those from his early 70s classics. With half of the songs being sizable hits though this has very little impact. Let’s Dance remains a very strong track with 66 million streams while three more songs total 53 million. Combined, this equals to 217,000 album sales.

Clearly, next two albums are massive disappointments in comparison. No song from Never Let Me Down comes even close to 1 million plays.

  1. Great articel! I know the legend because Barbra covered her classic Life on mars. I still waiting for articels abou France Sales and CSPC for Barbra

  2. Bowie did well for the kind of act he was.

    I really like this series. Can you do wholr popularity analyses for Red Hot Chili Peppers, Little Mix, Janet Jackson, Radiohead and Queen?

    Thanks =)

  3. David’s total is quite good, amazing considering he doesn’t have a hugely successful album but surpassed those who have one (Britney, Guns and Roses etc.) He is definitely up there among the most successful artists in history, despite going against the typical music industry rules and being highly risky and innovative.

    Anyway, i don’t know if you know this, but January 16 would mark Aaliyah’s 38th Birthday! I hope you would do a CSPC analysis on her as it would be quite fitting. I don’t expect her to have a huge result, but as an R&B artist who only released 3 albums, i’m quite curious into how she would rank among her peers.

    Keep up the good work!
