In the Spotify numbers tool, is there a reason why:

  • Angels Cry (feat. Ne-Yo)
  • Somewhat Loved (There You Go Breaking My Heart) – feat. Mariah Carey

don’t appear at all?

Martin

Not for Angels Cry (11,669,265), as it does appear.

Somewhat Loved, I’m guessing, the tool doesn’t pick it up as hers, but instead a Jam & Lewis track. So it will just need to be added to her orphan/features.

Angels Cry Original track – you are correct

Angels Cry Remix (feat. Ne-Yo) – 10,569,352 – missing

Martin

For me, the remix is greyed out/unavailable and can’t be found in her discography. I only managed to access it, through searching for the track and managing to locate it in someones playlist. It could be that her or her label etc have withdrawn the track or blocked it in certain regions.

https://open.spotify.com/track/0TJRfA2MIIRd3tTDK9tPPf?si=1d086fdfb9154337

So, I am guessing this is the reason it is not being returned in search tool.

Ah ok. That makes sense then! Thanks!

Martin

Can you access the track or find it in her discography?

Michael440

Yes I can. My membership is portuguese however, don’t know if it’s been made available only to certain countries…

Martin

Seems quite peculiar that it’s available in Portugal but not the UK or I’m guessing France, where MJD is from.

Another thought I had, was perhaps it’s greyed out/unavailable to free subscribers (like me) and available to premium (are you premium) but I’m sure before Taylor withdrew her catalogue from Spotify, she suggested it was only available to paying subscribers, Spotify refused this and said if it’s on the platform, it must be available to all subscribers, so I don;t think it’s this.

Hi Martin, Yes I am premium. Don’t know if that’s the case. The same issue happens with “Up Out My Face” Up Out My Face – 4,834,217 (shown) Up Out My Face (feat. Nicki Minaj) – 1,205,207 (missing) And Emancipation of Mimi album (the last 6 songs never show as part of the album for some reason): Don’t Forget About Us – 28,808,963 (shows in #1’s) Makin’ it Last All Night – 1,183,391 (missing) So Lonely – 485,513 (Shows in Features) We Belong Together – Remix – 5,636,036 (shows as a single) Secret Love – 100,014 (missing) Sprung – 192,397… Read more »

I’d definitely be more inclined to assume, its to do with different licensing rights, in different territories, than free or premium subscriptions.

Michael440

Does anyone know when her debut album is due for Diamond? It’s been 9x Platinum for quite some time now

Anon

Hi MJD,

Is there any way you can explain how her album “Merry Christmas” was recently certified 8x Platinum? It was certified 6x Platinum in 2019, so the jump seems hard to figure out.

Also RIAA has had some other album certs that are confusing recently. Kanye West & Jay-Z’s “Watch the Throne” is certified 5x Platinum, even though the equivalent units seem to be barely past 3 million!

Thanks

Sweet Serenity

I think merry christmas was already eligible for 7×/8×platinum in 2019 but Mariah’s label only paid for the 6×platinum cert.

Jazz

Probably her record label havent issued for a re audit on the album for quite some time, and when they finally request for an audit, the album jump from 6-8 million.
