With one era, plus a couple of of feature songs, Sam is already up to 5 singles over 3 million sales. The leading smash is obviously Stay With Me. This ground-breaking ballad is up to 8,3 million sales including over 4,5 million downloads in the US.
Then comes I’m Not The Only One close behind at 7,3 million. This may seem surprising as this song sold just over half the figures Stay With Me sold in both the US and the UK. However, tt has been an insane blockbuster in South Korea where it is now over 3 million sales.
As for features, Latch was huge in the US as was La La La in Europe. Both have similar tallies of over 3,7 million. The new single, Too Good at Goodbyes, has a long way to go before reaching such heights, but in all fairness nowadays it is all about streaming.
