The strength of the Disney Channel isn’t the same everywhere. This channel is especially big across the American continent. That’s why Gomez‘s early songs sold better there than elsewhere. Songs from her albums with The Scene sold nearly 85% of their digital units in the US alone!
More than 1 billion downloads were sold every year in the US from 2009 to 2011. This context enabled songs like Naturally, Who Says and Love You Like A Love Song to top 2 million units there in spite of never reaching the Top 20. It must be said that Gomez‘s Disney profile made it difficult for her to crush Airplay rankings which are crucial inside the calculation of the US Hot 100.
