CSPC: Will.i.am Popularity Analysis

Original Album Sales – Comments

2007 Songs About Girls – 350,000
2013 #willpower – 600,000

Well, the most ardent fan may say the trend of Will.i.am‘s albums sales is increasing.

This improvement occurred thanks to big singles, but let’s be honest, it was made very easy by the disastrous numbers achieved by the first albums. Although some kind of a breakthrough, Songs About Girls still sold only 350,000 copies, which is a dreadful result. Fergie‘s The Dutchess sold nearly 20 times more a mere one year earlier, and the band’s LPs Elephunk and Monkey Business performed even better.

At 600,000 sales, #willpower is hardly a smash. In spite of featuring singles by Britney Spears, Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus, it was never able to claim an audience.

    1. Don’t worry Mat. An article for Michael Jackson will definitely come soon. MJD is a huge MJ fan so just wait. 🙂

  1. Hi MID,

    Could you do Diana Ross and the Supremes, similar to how you did Beyonce.

    I am certain that the Supremes are still the top selling female group ever.

  2. I bet this long pause and wait is because the next artist that MJD analyzes is Cher or he is on holiday vacation !!!
