CSPC: Sam Smith Popularity Analysis

In the lonely hour

Physical Singles Sales

As a reminder, the weighting is done with a 10 to 3 ratio between one album and one physical single.

In the Lonely Hour (2014) – 9,000 equivalent albums

Money on My Mind – 10,000
Stay with Me – 20,000

Orphan – 21,000 equivalent albums

Writing’s on the Wall – 50,000
La La La – 20,000

In spite of a market that has been dead for very long, Sam Smith still sold a few physical singles. His biggest hits have been issued to some success in the last remaining countries that continue to sell this format, namely Germany, Switzerland and Austria. Writing’s on the Wall has the specificity of being a James Bond theme. A lot of collectors buy all of those which is why it moved nearly 20,000 units in the UK alone.
