CSPC: Celine Dion Popularity Analysis

think different

Original Album Sales – French Discography – Comments

1991 Dion Chante Plamandon – 1,500,000
1995 D’Eux – 7,200,000
1998 S’Il Suffisait D’Aimer – 3,900,000
2003 1 Fille & 4 Types – 1,500,000
2007 D’Elles – 700,000
2012 Sans Attendre – 1,300,000
2016 Encore Un Soir – 800,000

If it is already difficult to create a successful discography, creating two is even harder. It gets even more incredible when you do it in such an incredible fashion.

In comparison to global albums, those figures may seem low. Some perspective is needed. From 1995 to date, the biggest selling album in the US is Come On Over by Shania Twain at more than 20 million copies sold. In the same time frame, the highest selling album in France – indeed, the highest selling album ever – is D’Eux by Celine Dion at 4,21 million, ironically an other Canadian female star. The difference? Given respective markets, 4,21 million in France equals to some 34 million units in the US, more than what Michael Jackson‘s Thriller did.

S’Il Suffisait D’Aimer sales of 3,9 million are nowhere near D’Eux, but still enough to put it among the Top 3 best selling French albums ever, which shows the absolute madness created by those records in France, Quebec, Wallonia and such regions.

All in all, those albums shipped 16,9 million units, with Encore Un Soir likely to quickly sell its current shipments and to get new and big orders during the Christmas season.

Falling Into You

I just noticed that this page was made just 28 days since the release of Encore Un Soir (that’s why it only has 800k). Would love to get an update of Celine Dion and Courage sales to be added too.


Question, where did the sales of ANDHC, One Heart and Taking Chances go? Because the singles from those albums didn’t do wonders in the charts, maybe overseas yeah but in the Billboard Charts, not so much. I was surprised the sales cam close to self titled album

Falling Into You

She’s an album artist. Some of the biggest rock artists who are also in the top 15 best-selling artists of all time barely had any #1 hits and they have albums that sell 30 million or more.

Laundry service

Would be nice see some update over here


we’ll see in 10 years.


Hey is it possible to see Celine Dion’s sales per country, just like the others? Itll be interesting 😉


S’il suffisait d’aimer finally reached 5 million eas, her eight record to do so 👑


Hope we get to see Celine a dion global heat map soon 🙂


Hope you can add atleast the pure sales for Courage album. Interesting it got 113k from streaming alone.
