CSPC: Whitney Houston Popularity Analysis

Full Length related records Sales – Summary

Here is the most underestimated indicator of an album’s success – the amount of compilation sales of all kinds it generated. Due to the dependency of the original studio album sales on those releases, they are a key piece of the jigsaw.

The massive strength of The Bodyguard is confirmed as on top of its incredible sales on all formats – pure album sales, physical singles, download singles, streaming – it also generated sales of 6,7 million compilation albums and videos. Whitney’s first two albums are rather strong as well.
