CSPC: Gorillaz Popularity Analysis


Physical Singles Sales

As a reminder, the weighting is done with a 10 to 3 ratio between one album and one physical single.

Gorillaz (2001) – 402,000 equivalent albums

Tomorrow Comes Today – 20,000
Clint Eastwood – 1,130,000
Rock the House – 30,000
19-2000 – 160,000

Demon Days (2005) – 222,000 equivalent albums

Dirty Harry – 90,000
Feel Good Inc. – 390,000
El Mañana – 30,000
DARE – 230,000

Plastic Beach (2010) – 6,000 equivalent albums

All singles – 20,000

Orphan – 3,000 equivalent albums

Lil’ Dub Chefin’ – 10,000

In physical format, Clint Eastwood has no competition among the Gorillaz’s catalog. Selling over 1 million units, mostly in Europe, the song is a nice addition in terms of equivalent album sales to the self titled effort.

Both Feel Good Inc. and DARE did just as well, if not better, in the singles chart. However, the market had changed by then with download sales starting to replace the dwindling physicals market. That said, they still sold a combined 620,000 units.
