Yearly Most Successful Female Album: The New Generation (1999-2017)

2011 – Adele – 21

There is very little surprise in seeing Adele topping the year 2011 with her album 21. The lead single Rolling In The Deep instantly convinced millions of consumers to buy its parent album although the diva wasn’t that much famous by then. Someone Like You soon confirmed the insane crossover appeal of Adele. The rest is history. Her label exploited this popularity and sales kept going up and up and up.

21 topped 30 million pure sales last year, the first female studio album to break this threshold since 1997. It wasn’t only big in this format though. Believe it or not, you can completely exclude its 30 million album sales, 21 would still be easily the most successful female era of the year. It powered 3 million sales of the Live at Royal Albert CD/DVD, nearly 60 million downloads and ringtones were sold by its songs and its Streaming Equivalent Album tally is over 2 million, a comprehensive total of 14 million sales generated from remaining formats, 44 million overall!

The hype was tremendous for the return of Lady Gaga. She did well, although many expected even better, selling nearly 12 million equivalent album sales with Born This Way.

Rihanna is among the top sellers one more time with her 9-million selling era Talk That Talk. Beyoncé comes 4th with her 4th album titled 4, it sold nearly 9 million units in total.

Hello, why are there no female band listed?

Martin

The article is solely based on solo female albums, female bands are not included…not that many would feature, even if the scope was extended to female acts in general.

i hope you can update the article! doesn’t Blackpink have a chance in 2020?

Britney’s Greatest Hits, My Perogative sold 6 million albums in 2004, that puts her on this list since you include album sellers from 2004 that were only selling 5 M.
Britney had 5 albums in a row that made this list, plus Circus gives her 6, all in less than 1 decade!

Greatest Hits are included in Studio albums as CSPC’s formula. You can check this in Britney’s article.

Shouldn’t Britney hold the position for 2003 or 04? In the zone had already sold 8 million copies by the end of 2004

Sorry to bump this old topic but isn’t there a chance that Colbie Caillat’s debut Coco has done 5 million CSPC?

It’s double Platinum in the US, Bubbly did well in 2007 and seems to remain relevant on streaming. Realize did decently if I remember well too.

Hi MJD!
If I Counted Right the Stream:

In 2017, Right now Both Reputation , Dua Lipa passed 5 Million EAS By Far, and sitting in the 7-8 million area.
. In 2018 Sweetener Is very close.
In 2019, When We ALL Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, and Thank U,Next Already Got There, While Lover is Pretty Close.

Could you Please Update this Amazing analysis of women?
By the way, I Love This Website It Is So Well Thought and interesting.

Hey,MJD
The Sweet Escape By Gwen Stefani may reach 5m CSPC 2006
The Album Sold at least 3.5m WW I Thought
Digital Song Sales should be around 4m in united states (The Sweet Escape 3m digital downloads in U.S.)
WW Digital song sales at least 6m
And some other formats
5M is enough for it

That is huge improvement at 400k! So, I doubt whether the 400k comes from catalog sales. Maybe the 3.2 million figure also include Southeast Asian sales? LOVEppears actually released in very few countires in Asia, for example, a google book said that all Ayumi Hamasaki’s CDs were only legitimately available since 2004 in Indonesia. I think 400k catalog sales in 19… Read more »
