CSPC: P!nk Popularity Analysis

Streaming Part 4

Artists considered as album sellers rarely have strong songs outside of that scope. P!nk is the exception to this rule. Both 2010 hits from her compilation set, Raise Your Glass and F**kin’ Perfect have great streams on  both audio and video platforms. Lady Marmalade remains a 2001 Hits playlist favorite with streams up to 73 million plays on Spotify. Then comes Just Like Fire. The single from the Alice Through the Looking Glass Soundtrack from 2016 was much stronger in downloads relatively speaking, but still registered 131 million streams on Spotify.

This long list of relevant tracks add for 697,000 equivalent album sales.

  1. I actually like Pink…….she’s got a soulful voice and her choice of pop song’s is great compared to other divas of the 21st century

    1. Hi Pedro,

      I suggest you to read the page 2 to understand the concept. The Greatest Hits is distributed into “Other releases” sales among her studio albums, its own sales are listed page 23.

  2. Good career! Her GH album’s stats are impressive.

    You should update Beyoncé & Rihanna since they’re two of the artists whose recent changes in the CSPC methodology will impact the most.

  3. Britney only had a big peak, but she has sold about forty percent more than Pink. And they debuted at the same time. There are no excuses. Britney’s success is far superior in spite of the fact that she has not kept up so well as Pink (although the reasons are obvious and she had a lot more potential). In addition, without Britney there would have been no anti Britney: Pink, Avril … Her impact will always be greater than any girl of his generation, who appeared thanks to her. None of her generation can boast that if they had not existed in the industry, the industry would be different. She, yes. Definitely.

      1. Gus, respect to P!nk for her longevity, but Britney’s imprint remains on P!nk and Avril Lavigne, two artists whose careers were propelled by being anti-Britney’s during the 2000s decade and it has no choice but to be acknowledged.

        1. Not sure why my comment was down-voted.

          P!nk, Amy Lee of Evanescence and Avril Lavigne (and perhaps others) became anti-Britney’s through either their own music or their marketing. They’re the ones who wrote about Britney. Not Britney. It’s already imprinted on their music.

          Same with all the literature of at the time from the critics. You can’t go back in time and change it.

          It’s worth being brought up as Pitchfork and other losers try to go back in time to pathetically overrate Destiny’s Child to boost Beyonce’s legacy.

    1. Im a Britney fan, she is my no 1 favorite artist of all time. But seriously stop talking trash. Britney and Pink came out at around the same time. Pink always have different image, different music type, different personality, etc. So just stop it, because its getting embarrassing and desperate. They both are great. You totally bring up about Britney in a pink’s page. Totally unrelated.

  4. Great article as always! P!nk’s career consistency is amazing, although I’d disagree that “Try This” did decently. I feel like it was actually a huge bomb, I mean, selling 2.8 million pure/3.8 million CSPC in 2003 right after such a big era like “Missundaztood” was quite terrible. You recently mentioned that Britney’s “Blackout” was unsuccessful (despite having 4.4 million CSPC and being released during a weaker period for album sales), so you can imagine how much of a flop “Try This” was.

    Of course though, I’m not denying that she’s had a great career regardless. Most acts have a flop album/era every now and then, and it’s amazing that she managed to recover with “I’m Not Dead”, plus 3/4 other successful releases.

    Her greatest hits album did amazing numbers! I assume it must be the biggest greatest hits album of the 2010s decade?

    She’s not really a successful streaming act(which is fine considering not many pre-2005 acts are), but her digital sales are quite good.

  5. Regarding her overall career sales, it’s weird how she’s so massive in countries like the UK, Australia, New Zealand and Germany, where she has extraordinary results and completely overshadows her peers, but in other countries like Spain, Italy, Japan, Brazil, Finland, Norway, Belgium, Mexico, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand etc she’s actually very, very weak! Dare I say, her sales in France are not that great either, but still good of course. I’d argue that her success is very Anglophone-based (with the exception of German speaking countries, as well as the Netherlands and France).

  6. Cant believe she has higher total than Christina Aguilera. I guess Christina was bigger when they both first came out. But Pink has a much consistent career.
