Among the first albums that fully exploited download sales, All The Right Reasons has a golden spot. As many as five of its songs sold 3,8 million or more. The biggest of them is Rockstar with 9 million copies sold. The overall total of 30,8 million units sold by tracks from this album is already incredible, but the 25,2 million achieved in the US is pure madness.

On a lower scale, Dark Horse reproduced a similar pattern with an impressive 7 singles moving more than 1 million copies for a cumulative tally of 16,5 million.

  1. Very interesting article. I did not expect Nickelback to be ahead of the Spice Girls or Christina Aguilera in the CSPC list! They have very consistent sales even if they don’t seem to be successful outside the English speaking world + Germany.

    You should do Chad Kroeger’s ex-wife at some point (Avril Lavigne)!

    1. Exactly. Most of their sales comes from USA, Canada, Germany, UK and Australia. 5 of the greatest markets indeed, but not much outside them.
