CSPC: Alicia Keys Popularity Analysis


Physical Singles Sales

Just like every other act from her generation, Alicia Keys got big when physical single sales went weak. Her breakthrough hit Fallin’ is pretty much the only exception to this fact as it enjoyed some solid sales in continental Europe. After No One era physical singles were truly dead. In total, the American pianist still sold 3,7 million units in this format which ain’t bad considering this abysmal market context.

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