CSPC: Jackson 5 & The Jacksons Popularity Analysis


Digital Singles Sales – Part 3

As a reminder, the weighting is done with a 10 to 1,5 ratio between albums and digital singles.

The Jacksons (1976) – 33,000 equivalent albums

Enjoy Yourself – 150,000
Remaining tracks – 70,000

Goin’ Places (1977) – 3,000 equivalent albums

All tracks – 20,000

Destiny (1978) – 246,000 equivalent albums

Blame It on the Boogie – 740,000
Shake Your Body (Down to the Ground) – 870,000
Remaining tracks – 30,000

Enjoy Yourself has been surprisingly weak lately, with Show You the Way to Go doing even worse. Both songs had almost no impact even during the much hyped passing of Michael Jackson.

The same can’t be said about Blame It on the Boogie and Shake Your Body which continue to be pretty popular. Even before their inclusion on various Disco hits playlists they were doing well on iTunes.

Just curious, did you add the total of video sales from MJ solo and Jackson 5? Hope those weren’t counted 2wice.


In the case of Queen, their Greatest Hits 1 & 2 alone are well above 50 mill.
I think there are only 3 more artists with the shot of being above 200m: Queen, Elton and Elvis. The latter has a chance of breaking 300m, though i doubt it.

I can’t wait to see Michael’s article. OMG


Are you combining Michael Jackson’s total with these like you did for Beyonce with DC?


When will we ever get a Michael Jackson CSPC. 🙁

Only a few albums were not certified Gold/Platinum, that’s great! 60s and 70s albums didn’t sold a lot of copies by then, with some few exceptions.


Not a huge showing………..but the boost to MJ’s solo material is going to be significant

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
