On February 11, 2012, big news saddened millions of people – the death of legendary diva Whitney Houston. The woman that used to be recognized for her pure voice and image faced bad timesuntil her ultimate passing.
Memories of her stand-out performances and songs were still very much alive in the minds of many, yet her catalog still received, quite naturally, a sizable boost after her untimely passing.
How much is her catalog worth though? Everybody remembers the iconic The Bodyguard. Everything is iconic about it – the movie, the album, the single, and, of course, its main actress and singer, Whitney Houston. Such a juggernaut would shadow the remaining albums of most acts. So how do other studio albums from her stand in comparison?
Starting way back in 1985 with an eponymous album, she then returned with Whitney in 1987 and kept recording until her last effort, the 2009 release I Look To You. If her career had ups, it definitely had downs too. Thanks to the Commensurate Sales to Popularity Concept, we will be able to perfectly visualize this evolution and compare her albums with those of her peers like Madonna or Celine Dion.
The concept will not only bring you sales information for all of Whitney Houston’s albums, physical and download singles, as well as audio and video streaming, but it will also determine her true popularity. If you are not yet familiar with the CSPC method, the next page explains it with a short video. I fully recommend watching the video before getting into the sales figures.
