CSPC: Christina Aguilera Popularity Analysis


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. If you are not yet familiar with the CSPC idea, the next page explains it with a short video, I fully recommend you to check it before getting into sales figures. Of course, if you are a regular visitor feel free to jump to the following pages. Let’s go!

Happy 3 year anniversary of no update! keep up the good work MJD!!!!


First of all, this is not me. Second of all this is not Billboard where they have hundreds if not thousands of employees to updaye charts every single week. So be realistic. If u want Xtina to be updated so much. Do it urself. Make ur own website.


3 years. . . .

Adam Silver

So Adele, Rihanna & Britney (first and only 3 I checked) have all had updates this year, not one has been active in over 3 years . . . Christina releases a new album last year and . . . . zippo and no update in almost 4 years. Makes sense.


Doesn’t really mean much since all acts you mentioned are still outselling her with or without a new album.


I too would like to see Christina updated as I’m curious how her new album did and I think her streaming has seen a big boost in the last few years. But no need to bring other artists into this conversation. The guys at the website spend a lot of time and effort on this so let them do which artists they want.

Adam Silver

Maybe MJD, you could just give us in indication if she will be getting an update anytime soon? 4 year old information is worthless.


Hi Adam!
Christina currently has 3.701 billion streams on Spotify which is equivalent to 3.695 million album units and she also has 4.772 billion streams on Youtube which is equivalent to 406000 album units which means that she reached 4.101 million album units from streaming alone.
Her streaming numbers were equivalent to 1.642 million album units in 2017.

This means that her CSPC numbers are currently at 53.191 million excluding new album sales, digital song sales and physical single sales.
I hope I could answer your question. 🙂



Hi MJD. Is it possible that her Asian sales are underestimated. Because based on the MIAK year end charts. Her debut album sold 200k and above and Stripped sold 120k and above in Korea. If thats the case then based on ur estimate her debut album would sell 300k and stripped less then 200k in the Asia, non japan/korean market. Wouldnt that be too small for her standard? It seems like she have very good views from various Asian countries like Indonesia and The Philippines. What do u think?

Can we get an updated version? Since this analysis we got gold certifications for Keeps Gettin’ Better, Bionic and Lotus in the USA, a new album Liberation, more streams etc.

James Tinsdale

What is the point in having sales that are 3 years out of date? Her new album has been out for a year and a half and isn’t even mentioned! You choose to have this website open MJD, either close up shop or actually do something once in a while.


Can I ask why only one Burlesque song is included in Christina’s Spotify numbers? surely that is a mistake, also Lady Marmalade is on her Spotify so that should be included aswell. You guys have shaved off 250-300 million Aguilera streams.


Not on the Spotify Streaming Numbers page. They are on these pages yes, but not on the Streaming Tool. Am I mistaken? I have just checked again.


Ok, thanks MJD, can it be fixed?


I understand Lady Marmalade but not Burlesque. Whitney Houston has The Bodyguard on hers, not sure what the difference would be . . .


and GAGA with A Star Is Born


I would love to see an update for Christina Aguilera! Interested to see how her sales will adjusted 2 years later and how Liberation performed.

Michael T

But why isn’t Keeps Getting Better (album) or Mi Reflecto there? They came out well before her stuff was updated.

I was also under the impression you were the only person updating stuff, I apologise.

Michael T

You say you don’t favour Britney over Christina but for some reason Britney has had her pages updated April of this year even though she hasn’t done anything in 3 years, Christina released an album last year plus the 2 albums you have decided not to include . . . . hmmm

Michael T

Also, why have you not included Keeps Getting Better (album) or Mi Reflecto?
