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

The Heist (2012) – 21,000 equivalent albums

Can’t Hold Us – 35,000
Thrift Shop – 35,000

Orphan – 2,000 equivalent albums

Arrows – 5,000

Unsurprisingly, very few singles from Macklemore have been released in physical format. Here they are with estimated total sales of 75,000.

IMO, you should return the artists table to the last page. It’s just not comfortable when it’s in a separate article.


Thanks a lot for doing Macklemore! Didn’t see that coming.

I knew that The Heist would have a good total due to its very strong streams but I didn’t expect it to be close to 10 million.

It’s good that Gemini doesn’t seem to continue the decline and even reverse the trend after the flop of This Unruly Mess I’ve Made.
