CSPC: Christina Aguilera Popularity Analysis

Britney Spears en Mickey Mouse Club

Streaming Sales

As seen with the example of the Beatles, today weight of Spotify is steadily increasing, representing as much as 63,5% of overall streams on their example. The Swedish giant recently announced they broke the 50-million barrier of paid subscribers.

We will keep that ratio Spotify-All Audio Streaming services updated as much as possible, especially when next IFPI RIN comes out next month covering 2016 Global market. For now, we will be sticking with this 63,5% rate.

What is this section about? Here we will be reviewing streams from all songs and all albums of today artist, converting each of them into equivalent album sales. The equivalent album sales is the division of the comprehensive streaming figure by 1500 as it is now the norm in the new industry model.

Streaming Part 1 – US Arrival

As CSPC rules focus on rewarding records which created a value rather than new packages of past songs, songs of the Spanish effort Mi Reflejo are spread here in two categories – translations of Christina Aguilera songs are owned by this album itself, while the remaining ones go into the Orphan album.

Unsurprisingly, the biggest hit from her debut album is her breakthrough song Genie In A Bottle at 56 million streams. All other singles from the album keep getting streamed with 7,5-20 million plays each. Those decent figures overall provide 123,000 equivalent album sales.

Streaming figures are often pretty good for Christmas albums. Many people didn’t though it was worth it to buy one just to air it for a couple of days. Meanwhile, those same persons can perfectly stream a bit those records at the best time of the year. My Kind of Christmas has enjoyed that way 46,000 equivalent album sales.

Back to basics sales are far from disappointing, it’s a double disc with a not commercial sound selling over 6.6M units, it’s actually pretty good.

also some stats are deflated. Your Body sold 1.350.000 digital copies not 900.000.

also, is it possible to update it? it’s been years and she released 1 album and a half since then.

I’ve been tweeting to him and posted comments here, but still got zero response. I hope he will update it as soon as La Luz EP is released.

Angelo

When are you going to update all her albums, singles and sales?

Eminemfan

She didn’t even last longer than katy. Horrible stats for someone to be known as rival of Britney back then.

That is what happens when someone copies when they can’t come up with their own thing.

It’s hard to sell albums when you’re crafting amazing albums like Stripped and Back to Basics and not releasing an album a year by just singing whatever is put on front of you by Max Martin or Dr Luke . . .

Lmao those albums streams proved that they are not seen artistic by gp except by xtina fans and never got much acclaim. Stop making excuses. Brtney released albums bcoz she had demand for them.

Xtina didn’t and outside usa , she was never a match for britney. Britney’s success and celebrity was top. If xtina had released so much, she would’ve became irrelevant by 2004! Easy to bring artistic integrity to justify flopping! Those albums tragic streams show otherwise anyways!

The rivalry was mainly due to both artists being on the Mickey Mouse Club together, being nearly the same age, and then debuting their pop careers around the same time. There was never any competition when it came to sales–Britney outsold Christina by a massive margin, plus released more albums in her first few years. Looking at the chartmasters numbers, just Britney’s first two albums (BOMT + OIDIA) total more sales than Christina’s entire solo career to date (and equal her total career numbers with features included). However Christina is still ahead of Kay Perry’s career total so I’m not… Read more »

Can’t wait for Eminemfan posting in the Prince thread “Horrible stats for someone to be known as rival of MJ back then”.

He already did that with Janet, “Horrible stats for someone to be known as rival of Whitney” or something. Trolls gonna troll…

Eminemfan

Just because someone point out the numbers doesn’t make them a troll. But i understand it is tough concept for blind cult deluded worhippers to understand.

Na i won’t do in Prince’s post , because he was actual a true artist, even though his music isn’t my taste, who went against label. Other 2 were mainstream as it gets. But to hide their flops, their fans act like they were some Kate Bush non mainstream artistic side lmao. When their music was as commercial like any other cringeworthy pop star.

Oh another reply I missed, isn’t it possible to show more “Recent Comments” with WordPress ? Subscribing to every thread is rather annoying…

Anyway, I assume Eminemfan is banned at this point but here he was pretending that Prince wasn’t in the same genre as Janet and Christina (pop/r&b) 🙄

Hey MJD, could you please add Liberation at least to the CSPC table? I have seen other artists being updated with their latest releases, but not Christina. If you have the time we would love to see the pure sales breakdown of the album too. Thank you, much appreciated.

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.

AndrewMark

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 »
