Streaming Part 2
The digital smash of the Demi album is confirmed again with outstanding streaming tallies. Heart Attack is on 118 million Spotify streams and 539 million at YouTube. It isn’t alone in the success column as Up, Neon Lights and Really Don’t Care all break the 100 million plateau at both audio and video streaming avenues. Strong album tracks too build a cumulative tally of 699,000 equivalent album units from streams.
Confident’s total isn’t that far behind at 614,000 units, although it should be seen as a truly weaker result. In fact, from 2013 to 2015 the streaming market exploded. It isn’t the only reason to be slightly disappointed, since album tracks and secondary singles are clearly weaker overall than the Demi album too. Its two big hits, Confident and Cool for the Summer, completely counterbalance them with solid showings.
