CSPC: Christina Aguilera Popularity Analysis

Christina-Aguilera_02

While watching a group of teenagers on the Mickey Mouse Club way back in 1993, nobody would have guessed that four of them, Justin TimberlakeBritney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Ryan Gosling, would be superstars two decades later. It just happened. Following the foot steps of the former which got big along with N’Sync boys band, the two blonde girls both arrived in the Pop Music scene in 1998 / 1999 with a huge #1 hit, instantly drawing attention and creating the perfect rivalry story for gossip magazines.

If recent struggles of both Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera moved away public eyes on other new popular singers a la Taylor Swift or Adele, the battle was fierce for several years between both artists and even stronger within’ their respective fan bases. One has more US #1 albums, the other has more #1 singles. The latter has the biggest UK album, yet the first has the biggest global seller. With valid arguments both sides, it becomes hard to accurately define which one was the biggest. The only thing which remained safe up to now is that from their debut to 2004 they both recorded an impressive string of hits.

Now, we will fully clarify the situation setting Christina Aguilera overall popularity from her self-titled debut until her last effort Lotus.

As usual, I’ll be using the Commensurate Sales to Popularity Concept in order to relevantly gauge the diva results. The concept will not only bring you raw data of all Christina Aguilera albums, physical singles, download singles, music videos and streaming, it will also accurately weight all this information to conclude on meaningful popularity indicators.

Stripped not selling 10M pure sales is what I’d call disappointing, Back To Basics moving only 6.5M units is simply tragic. Aguilera only lasted for 4 years.

What an exaggeration! Back to Basics is a double CD, and in most countries it costs more, which puts off casual shoppers – not fans, of course. The three Back to Basics singles have earned gold and platinum certifications in the US and other countries, nowhere near a failure. The sound of the record is not as catchy and mainstream as what was playing at the time. In comparison, Madonna released in 1990 the CD I’m Brathless, with the same type of sound and which sold about 6 million copies worldwide, even with a (catchy) song like Vogue – which… Read more »

When will you finally update her stats from other streaming platforms other than Spotify? Lotus – 179,000 – this is data from Spotify only. Your Body has over 200m views on YouTube, which is 20k sps (using your method). Where is Mi Reflejo (STUDIO ALBUM)?Why this album is in “ORPHAN”?

Maybe she is not that BIGGER but she has amazing and better sales worldwide… Those sales are not updated and there is still one album (Liberation) and others singles that must be updated to the current year.
