CSPC: Norah Jones Popularity Analysis

Norah Jones Career CSPC Results

Norah Jones (photographer unknown)

So, after checking all figures, how many overall equivalent album sales each Norah Jones album achieved? Well, at this point we barely need to do the addition of all figures defined all over this article!

In the following table, all categories display figures that way, e.g. in equivalent album sales. For example, Come Away With Me singles released in digital format sold the equivalent of 1,590,000 albums – 10,600,000 downloads with a 10 to 1,5 weighting.

As a reminder:

  • Studio Album: sales of the original album
  • Other Releases: sales of compilations generated thanks to the album
  • Physical Singles: sales of physical singles from the album (ratio 3/10)
  • Download Singles: sales of digital singles from the album (ratio 1,5/10)
  • Streaming: equivalent album sales of all the album tracks (ratio 1/1500)

As previously mentioned various acts fully replaced studio album sales with huge digital results. This is clearly not the case of Norah Jones. Her streaming results aren’t bad, but she hasn’t sold much digital singles nor compilations or live albums. All those facts put together mean her good catalog sales for Come Away With Me are not as good as we think since they are largely benefiting from the absence of competition from other formats or other LPs.

In spite of being the biggest seller in studio album form, her debut set ends up being topped by the main records of Eminem, Linkin Park and Lady Gaga among the 00s top eras. Don’t get me wrong, owning one of the five biggest records of the decade in the world is still absolutely amazing, an achievement even more impressive for a singer with Norah Jones style of music.

In total, her tally is 50,3 million equivalent album sales. As she is struggling more and more with her new records, she will be relying in her first album catalog appeal to continue to increase her results.

Do not forget to check our amazing lists posted inside the CSPC: Data Collector which includes the full listing of all CSPC results compiled so far to better gauge her position in the history of the music industry.

Hi dear MJD !!! Congratulations again for the website, well after just two days you have published CSPC analysis Norah Jones I’m really very fast, quick, I’d appreciate if you post every 2 days some singer or group, that would be great. I am very astonished by your great wisdom, you are an encyclopedia of music. Then as you did for the compilation Gold (ABBA) that you analyzed in detail for each country with the respective image or album cover; could you do the same with the three famous and important compilations of Beatles that are The Beatles 1 (One);… Read more »

Certain dear MJD, indeed I apologize to you for my insistence, I also ask why the Beatles are the artists who have sold more ‘discs of all but I do not think they sold more’ than a billion records as many sources cite type wikipedia. I think between albums and singles have sold about 500-600 million records. I believe that the Beatles will not be analyzed before Christmas.
Then as I understand the next artists analyzed are the Rolling Stones. Did I guess ?

Great job as always MJD! Glad you did an article on her.
