CSPC: Michael Bublé Popularity Analysis

Itunes

Digital Singles Sales

Download singles destroyed the whole concept of albums and singles. As soon as you can pick any track you want at any time you want, downloading songs can perfectly replace the purchase of an album.

This fact is very visible within’ Michael Buble download singles sales. At a cumulative 35,4 million, they are utterly impressive considering the very little impact of his songs on charts. As the artist wasn’t at all a singles seller during the physical era, this means those singles downloads replaced in fact albums purchases. His biggest download hit so far remains Haven’t Met You Yet at 4,8 million.

As a reminder, the weighting is done with a 10 to 1,5 ratio between one album and one digital single.

Is Christmas past 20 million already?

Hi MJD,

just wondering with various countries beginning to count streaming into their singles and albums certification, will there be double counting?

Thanks!

Nice work MJD! Buble’s total results are quite impressive, surprassing the likes of other big pop stars.

Also, i noticed you haven’t done a CSPC analysis on one certain act-Female groups! Hence, i hope you will do one for TLC🙏🏽 CrazySexyCool was one of the biggest R&B albums of the 90’s with multiple successful singles. Moreover, Fanmail was a nice comeback after their 5-year hiatus. I also wonder how they compare to other R&B acts (eg. Alicia Keys)

Keep up the good work!
