I have guessed right that Black Eyes Peas were next. Love the band and their songs. I hope they release an album again. I really love their songs.

And wow, My Heart Will Go On is the biggest song. Celibe Dion rules! 🙂


Lady Gaga sold 45 million albums now, but, with your new method, will she bigger than Black eyed peas??


Hey MJD, waiting for Ariana Grande 🙂


Fantastic analysis. Thanks for providing the list of songs and albums, besides CPS all time artists.
One comment: there’s a mistake in the “achievements” page where it says the streak of 26 consecutive weeks at #1 in Billboard Hot 100. It’s only because of 2 songs (Boom Boom Pow and I Gotta Feeling). “Meet Me Halfway” never reached the top position.


Your data is amazing and impressively precise. I would like to know if you could post the Popularity Concept of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Radiohead.


Thank You. This is one that I’ve been looking forward to the most. The had so much success with Elephunk, Monkey Business, and The End.

Also Kinda OT, but I Gotta Feeling’s massive numbers have me wondering, were there any other songs that outside it in digital single sales?


From what I know, it is the best-selling digital song of all time!


Thank You for this. This is one of the ones I have been looking forward to the most and as I expected, their numbers are very impressive. Especially for the Elephunk/Monkey Business/END eras.

This is kinda OT, but after seeing those massive numbers for I Gotta Feeling I started wondering, were there any other songs bigger than it in digital single sales?
