Losing Grip – 170,000
Complicated – 990,000
Sk8er Boi – 470,000
I’m with You – 390,000

Girlfriend – 420,000
The Best Damn Thing – 10,000

Goodbye Lullaby (2011) – 18,000 equivalent albums

What the Hell – 40,000

Avril Lavigne (2013) – 6,000 equivalent albums

All singles – 20,000

Orphan – 2,000 equivalent albums

All singles – 7,500

By 2002 majors weren’t releasing proper singles anymore in the US. Hits from Let Go were only available as video singles, a format with limited impact. The success in Europe and Oceania was big enough to grant Complicated nearly 1 million sales, while Sk8er Boi and I’m with You sold around 400,000 units a piece.

Hits from Under My Skin had a lower impact and also during a less favorable context with physical sales starting to collapse in Europe too. The situation  only worsened by 2007, but Girlfriend was so big that it still registered 420,000 sales in that dying format.

Please update


What’s wrong with this place? First, they took sales away from P! Nk and now they took 1 million from Avril Lavigne ??? With what credibility do they want to be seen if they even have the albums Head Above Water and Love Sux changed places, they don’t update their sales to the letter. The sales they show for Head Above Water are the same as they did in 2019 as if they had removed the album from everywhere after 2019. Correct your mistakes. 1 month ago Let Go had 20.5 million and now 19.3? This is a fraud and… Read more »
