CSPC: Enya Popularity Analysis

Streaming Part 3

As the numbers above prove, Only Time didn’t just have a great momentum when widely used to cover the September 11 attacks more than 16 years ago, but it has been able to sustain great popularity with a very strong 78 million streams on Spotify, and an even more massive 197 million views across YouTube. Apart from her signature song in the USA and other countries, tracks like A Day Without Rain, Wild Child, Flora’s Secret and One By One top the 10 million mark on Spotify, albeit with mixed luck on YouTube. These five songs, coupled with the other album tracks, which all achieved at least 2 million streams, put A Day Without Rain at 187,000 equivalent albums sales when all is said and done, which surpasses Watermark.

Amarantine, with another four songs reaching at least 10 million streams on Spotify, and amongst them the title track ranking as the most sreamed, gives her an additional 99,000 equivalent album sales.

Hi MJD, can we get a breakdown for The Very Best of Enya? It’s the only major release that is missing :))


pleased to know her sales in Ireland!



I was just looking over all the estimates and found a calculation error in the album sales total concerning her Asian sales.

Adding all her studio album plus PTSWS compilation, the total for Japan adds for a little over 6m, while sales outside Japan in Asia is over 5m. But in the page where the total album sales listed, her Japanese sales total a 7,26m, leaving just over 4m for the rest of Asia! I hope you’ll correct this soon!


Did you include the frog prince (French Lesson) soundtrack from 1984?
I looked it up and it was Enyas first project. She wrote 9 instrumentals for the soundtrack.
I would think that should be included


Not a fan of Carribean Blue. Orinoco Flow should outsell it someday, soon

Nuclear dolphin

Damned she’s sexy too!


Never in a million years, would I have thought she would’ve had a higher album sales than Britney Spears. But unsurprisingly she have lower CSPC than Britney.


I knew she had great sales, but I didn’t expect her to be this global! She’s one of the few females who truly made it big everywhere – North America, Europe, Oceania, South America and Asia, with the last two being quite hard to crack for most artists!
