CSPC: Shania Twain Popularity Analysis

Shania Twain Career CSPC Results

Shania Twain Portrait - by: Ian Rees

So, after checking all figures, how many overall equivalent album sales has each Shania Twain album achieved? Well, at this point we don’t need to add up all of the figures defined in this article!

In the following results table, all categories display figures in equivalent album sales. If different, pure sales are listed between parentheses.

*Pure sales figures updated on 02/25/22.
'Av.' stands for Average, 'LD' for Last Day.

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 for Audio stream and 1/6750 for Video stream)

See where the artist ranks among remaining singers

At current pace Come On Over cracks the 45 million barrier. As impossible as this may seem, this isn’t enough to make it the most successful Canadian album released in November 1997. In fact, the album falls 1 million short of the Celine Dion‘s blockbuster album Let’s Talk About Love.

Still, it is very easily the biggest Country album of all-time and one of the biggest overall. With more than 31,8 million combined, The Woman In Me and Up! are both huge albums too.

In total, she sold 80,5 million album equivalent units through all formats. With a mere three years between her worldwide breakthrough and her retirement, this is a superb result. Considering her low streaming sales and the split with Robert John “Mutt” Lange, things aren’t looking good for a possible return. However as Tony Tomjanovich once said, never underestimate the heart of a champion!

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.

Hey , When were these pure sales updated? It says Feb 5th 2022 in the breakdown table but on the main “best selling artists” page, it says May 12th 2016. Is there a difference between the two? Which date is the correct one? Thanks!
