Reaching hits issued during the digital era – although it was just getting started when The Emancipation of Mimi came out – figures overall are much more healthy. At 3,4 million We Belong Together doesn’t seem so big. We need to consider that the South Korean market and ringtones had yet to grow and that even downloads in the US were still rather modest. This is why Touch My Body or even Obsessed haven’t sold that much less in spite of being nowhere near as successful.

I dont mind so much to get a full update, but it would be interesting to see how much Caution has sold after quite an underperformance.

Billboard reported 250000 physical sales only but no clue about the rest of the world

TapestryCK

It’s not reported 250,000 physical sales.

It sold nearly 100,000 copies by May 2019.
Then it drop out of the album sales chart

Probably is the worldwide figure after all
