P!nk CAREER CSPC RESULTS
So, after checking all the figures, how many overall equivalent album sales has each album by P!nk 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 Funhouse released in digital format sold the equivalent of 3,114,000 albums – 20,760,000 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)
It is a matter of months, or even weeks, before both I’m Not Dead and The Truth About Love cross the magical barrier of 10 million equivalent album sales. From there, P!nk will be up to 4 albums topping that tally as Funhouse is up to 12,4 million and M!ssundaztood remains her top seller overall with 15,9 million equivalent album sales.
Thanks to the CSPC format we notice that the last 3 albums are indeed much closer to her 2001 global breakthrough LP unlike what just pure album sales suggest. This confirms even more the incredible consistency of P!nk lately.
Both Can’t Take Me Home and Try This are all but dead so the gap will only get bigger with the remaining albums. Respective equivalent album sales of 5,3 million and 3,8 million are still decent.
The picture brought by the table is somewhat similar to the one of Madonna, although obviously at a lower scale. She started with a good selling album and then exploded with the second effort. Her weak albums are still good sellers and she has been able to reinvent herself several times. She has no record-breaking seller in any format, but she is solid and consistent in all of them.
As for Beautiful Drama, it is just getting started. The first bits of information about its debut are very promising so we will soon know how much it will boost her totals not only by its own sales but also by regenerating her valuable catalog.
In total she has sold 62,9 million equivalent album units so far. This puts her behind Adele, Taylor Swift, Rihanna and Beyoncé, but the ballpark is really similar. She tops the likes of Shakira, Norah Jones, Christina Aguilera, Alicia Keys and Lady Gaga, confirming her status among the elite sellers of the last 15 years. As usual, feel free to comment and / or ask a question!
