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.
