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 table, all categories display figures that way, e.g. in equivalent album sales. For example, Come On Over singles released in digital format sold the equivalent of 900,000 albums – 6,000,000 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)

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!
