CSPC: Lana Del Rey Popularity Analysis

Lana Del Rey CAREER CSPC RESULTS

Lana Del Rey

So, after checking all the figures, how many overall equivalent album sales has each Lana Del Rey album achieved? Well, at this point we hardly need to add up all of the figures defined in this article!

In the following table, all categories display figures that way, e.g. in equivalent album sales. For example, singles from Born to Die released in digital format sold the equivalent of 2,055,000 albums – 13,700,000 downloads with a 10 to 1,5 weighting.

    • As a reminder:

  • Studio Album: sales of the original album
  • Other Releases: sales of compilations generated thanks to the album
  • Physical Singles: sales of physical singles from the album (ratio 3/10)
  • Download Singles: sales of digital singles from the album (ratio 1,5/10)
  • Streaming: equivalent album sales of all the album tracks (ratio 1/1500 for Audio stream and 1/11750 for Video stream)

Up to now, Unorthodox Jukebox by Bruno MarsTake Me Home by One Direction and Red by Taylor Swift were the biggest albums from 2012 we have studied so far, in this order, with sales ranging from 10 to 13 million equivalent album sales – please notice Night Visions by Imagine Dragons hasn’t been studied as yet.

Born to Die belongs to the same category of smash albums. The aforementioned albums are showing good consistency too, but not nearly as much as Lana‘s classic record, which may climb higher and higher on this hierarchy from now on.

This success overshadows her other albums. Ultraviolence struggles to pass 2 million, Honeymoon is lucky to be over 1 million while Lust for Life still has a lot of work to do before getting anywhere close. All in all, these results are really negative.

Adding orphan songs also, Lana Del Rey is up to 15,5 million equivalent album sales.

The following pages list her most successful songs as well as her records and achievements. Do not forget to check our amazing cross-artists lists posted inside the CSPC: Data Collector which includes the full listing of all CSPC results compiled so far to better gauge her position in the history of the music industry.

I believe this deserves an update.. it’s been so long! Born To Die is doing amazingly in longevity. The latter should be at around 11.5M-12M CSPC?? Considering it has over 3B on Spotify.

Hope it can get updated soon.

[…] Del Rey, a este ponto, dispensa apresentações. Tendo já movido mais de 15 milhões de unidades equivalentes a álbuns, é seguro afirmar que o seu nome e a sua presença na música pop é incontestavelmente […]

Really good article. Are you going to be updating the sales any time soon specifically Honeymoon & LFL sales? Thanks 🙂

Nid

I think there’s a typo for Australia born to die number 240,000 instead of 140,000.

Also do you know if any of lana’s Songs are eligible for any sort of certification in the US?

Nid

Thanks for the clarification! Also in Sweden btd paradise edition is certified 2x plat so why only put 15k?

Lizz

hi u should update this since btd was just last week eligible to go 3x platinum

Lizz

on us*

joel Reis

hey if u go on mediatraffic it says 609k units for lust for life , so with the streams on spotify (355million) and track sales the album surpassed 1 million units?

Liz

For digital song sales is that pure or with streaming?

Helloo

If born to die paradise edition (the reissue) has 5 million sales wand born to die 7 million wouldn’t that make the complete units for born to die over 13 million?

Helloo

I’m confused, why does wiki have the sales separated as two different studio albums?
