CSPC: Nickelback Popularity Analysis

Streaming Part 2

Track lists from both Silver Side Up and The Long Road follow the same pattern as one another, with one big hit and the remaining songs all over 1 million, but also all under 10 million streams on Spotify.

There is one big difference though – the strength of the aforementioned hit. Someday is solid at 37 million, plus 16 million streams on both audio and video main platforms. It can’t compete with How You Remind Me though which flies at a superb 144 million streams on Spotify and 346 million on YouTube. Consequently, equivalent album sales of Silver Side Up are much higher at 221,000 units against 80,000 for The Long Road.

Very interesting article. I did not expect Nickelback to be ahead of the Spice Girls or Christina Aguilera in the CSPC list! They have very consistent sales even if they don’t seem to be successful outside the English speaking world + Germany.

You should do Chad Kroeger’s ex-wife at some point (Avril Lavigne)!


Exactly. Most of their sales comes from USA, Canada, Germany, UK and Australia. 5 of the greatest markets indeed, but not much outside them.


When you consider the fact that they have 9 studio albums and Christina produce only 5 studio albums, it really isnt a wonder how they produced more total album sales. Plus, they really make use of the booming music market from late 90s until mid 00s. They produced multiple albums back then, while Xtina produced only 2 studio albums.
