In recent years, the market of downloads has dropped a lot as a consequence of the emergence of streaming. Just like in pure album sales, it is difficult to know how much of the drop in results, from 12 to 7 million download singles per era, is due to market changes or down to a possible popularity drop.

Before getting an answer to this question we must highlight the overall total of 57 million download singles sales.

Can you updated the one direction album tracklist


One direction music has really aged well. Selling over 2 million a year and increasing by 10 million is good feat. Averaging 11 million per era. Damn! They will be over 70 million by end of decade. Amazing stuff.


So now three of them have at least one solo album that has debut top five in the US. Looks promising for them all.


Hi. Please update Harry Styles’ solo CSPC. Thanks
