CSPC: Avril Lavigne Popularity Analysis

Avril Lavigne CAREER CSPC RESULTS

So, after checking all the figures, how many overall equivalent album sales has each album by Avril Lavigne 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 The Best Damn Thing released in digital format sold the equivalent of 2,873,000 albums – 19,150,000 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)

At 19,34 million equivalent album sales, Let Go is clearly one of the most successful albums from the 00s. There may be some frustration in seeing both Under My Skin and The Best Damn Thing under 10 million, but over 9 million three times in a row is no easy feat. Often regarded as a one-album wonder nowadays, the figures prove that Lavigne was a terrific seller for 3 successive campaigns.

Goodbye Lullaby and Avril Lavigne show a decline that can’t be contested, but their figures aren’t as chaotic as they were upon release. They close in on 3,6 million and 1,6 million respectively, not big nor consistent, but not irrelevant either. The positive indicator for the singer is that all her albums are solid on streaming platforms which means her fans can hope her upcoming records will not automatically bomb, plus her catalog is going to increase steadily in the future.

Her five albums together, along with the few orphan tracks released sparingly, add for 43,06 million equivalent album sales. This puts her in the same league as the likes of Christina Aguilera, Lady Gaga and Norah Jones. All the aforementioned artists are on 50 million equivalent album sales in total, but also all with slightly larger discographies.

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.

As usual, feel free to comment and / or ask a question!

Can you update Head Above Water sales?

Iris

I remember her being popular but I did not know her debut was so huge. The 3rd biggest seller for a female during the 00s.

If am I do not wrong, “Let Go” has sold over 18ʼ000,000 pure copies until now, cause the 16ʼ220,000 is till 2004 the last update from ARISTA RECORDS. Mediatraffic give the albums over 19ʼ000,000 and put the album on their list “100 best selling/successful albums of all time”
And “Under My Skin” over 9ʼ600,000

How Can I see total digital sales for every countrys?

[…] genuína e astuta o suficiente ao ponto do seu álbum de estreia, lançado em 2002, conseguir mover números impressionantes para um projeto de estreia de uma jovem artista, cuja imagem não parecia conformista o suficiente […]
