CSPC: Celine Dion Popularity Analysis

Celine Dion - My Heart Will Go On

Physical Singles Sales – English Discography

I know, I know, Celine Dion is an album seller. Well, she still has million selling singles in the US, in the UK, in Japan, in Germany and in France – each time with at least one different song.

Often, that million seller was the hit that made her explode in the country. Pour Que Tu M’Aimes Encore in France, To Love You More in Japan, Think Twice in the UK, The Power Of Love in the US. In each of those countries, Celine Dion was already known, already an OK-ish seller and she just went into an incredible success roll after those respective songs. This perfectly displays her unparalleled appeal during the 90s.

The fact she instantly moved into a huge album seller after her breakthrough hit obviously limited her physical single sales. At least two big hits in most countries though – the breakthrough plus My Heart Will Go On – plus a bunch of average sellers still created a cumulative tally of 32 million singles sold, counting English songs only.

As a reminder, the weighting is done with a 10 to 3 ratio between one album and one physical single.
