HI MDJ, can you tell us how many physical singles has whitney houston sold in USA?

What about Waiting To Exhale?

I wonder why hers and mariah touring numbers arent nearly as good as celine and madonna even if all their sales are insane

Stephy

Mariah was never a huge touring act, even at her commercial peak, she only did like 13 shows total. Whitney Houston was a touring machine, doing over 400 shows between 1985 – 1999, but she toured before ticket prices spiked thru the roof, during the 00’s and 10’s.

What’s interesting is that even in the 80s and 90s Madonna far outgrossed both Whitney and Tina if you compare how many concerts they did.

Tina for example did hundreds of shows on her tours, but Madonnas tours were far more successful if you compare how much they grossed with the number of shows they did.

Tina Turner Break Every Rule tour made 60 million out of 218 shows.

Madonnas Who’s That Girl made 25 million out of 38 shows.

Stephy

That shows a lot about Madonnas star power if anything.

Stephy

Yes, Barbra Streisand charges even more than her. But its still greedy imo. Adele is starting to do it now. Horrible.

Can you please correct in Page 34 at the article, the seventh album doesn’t have question mark(?) in it’s name, which looks like (Just Whitney?) instead of the correct one (Just Whitney)

Ultimate Master

To those creators of this site, especially MJD, we need an update for Whitney’s article since it’s already longer than we expected.

Hello MJD , what are your estimations of Whitney’s albums sales in Argentina , Mexico and Brasil besides The Bodyguard? for the markets that are N/A i read that you use some formula were there’s no certification/known sales.
