Lana Del Rey CAREER CSPC RESULTS
So, after checking all the figures, how many overall equivalent album sales has each Lana Del Rey album achieved? Well, at this point we hardly need to add up all of the figures defined in this article!
In the following table, all categories display figures that way, e.g. in equivalent album sales. For example, singles from Born to Die released in digital format sold the equivalent of 2,055,000 albums – 13,700,000 downloads with a 10 to 1,5 weighting.
As a reminder:
- Studio Album: sales of the original album
- Other Releases: sales of compilations generated thanks to the album
- Physical Singles: sales of physical singles from the album (ratio 3/10)
- Download Singles: sales of digital singles from the album (ratio 1,5/10)
- Streaming: equivalent album sales of all the album tracks (ratio 1/1500 for Audio stream and 1/11750 for Video stream)
Up to now, Unorthodox Jukebox by Bruno Mars, Take Me Home by One Direction and Red by Taylor Swift were the biggest albums from 2012 we have studied so far, in this order, with sales ranging from 10 to 13 million equivalent album sales – please notice Night Visions by Imagine Dragons hasn’t been studied as yet.
Born to Die belongs to the same category of smash albums. The aforementioned albums are showing good consistency too, but not nearly as much as Lana‘s classic record, which may climb higher and higher on this hierarchy from now on.
This success overshadows her other albums. Ultraviolence struggles to pass 2 million, Honeymoon is lucky to be over 1 million while Lust for Life still has a lot of work to do before getting anywhere close. All in all, these results are really negative.
Adding orphan songs also, Lana Del Rey is up to 15,5 million equivalent album sales.
The following pages list her most successful songs as well as her records and achievements.
