CSPC: Arctic Monkeys Popularity Analysis

Arctic Monkeys

Streaming Sales

Streaming is made up of audio and video streams. Our CSPC methodology now includes both to better reflect the real popularity of each track. The main source of data for each avenue is respectively Spotify and YouTube. As detailed in the Fixing Log article, Spotify represents 157 million of the 272 million users of streaming platforms, while YouTube is pretty much the only video platform generating some revenue for the industry. Below is the equivalence set on the aforementioned article:

Audio Stream – 1500 plays equal 1 album unit
Video Stream – 11,750 views equal 1 album unit

Equivalent Albums Sales (EAS) = 272/157 * Spotify streams / 1500 + YouTube views / 11750

Streaming Part 1

Whatever was a smash immediately, eventually it became a classic too. Its two #1 UK singles lead the way at 105 and 87 million Spotify streams, respectively. Meanwhile, it’s its album cuts which impress the most at more than 15 million each. The album concludes on 616,000 EAS as a result.

Seen as a disappointment at first, Favourite Worst Nightmare has fully recovered. Fluorescent Adolescent grew immensely in later years to jump at 180 million streams on Spotify. Likewise, the status of the LP improved strongly. All its songs top 14 million. Its EAS total is identical to its predecessor.

Kinda sad how their worst album is the 2nd best selling.. Well, guess it’s just how pop industry works

Please can we have Tool or Smashing Pumpkins or Marilyn Manson that sold a lot more than AM?

RLAAMJR.

I don’t know them but I recognized their biggest track. Ill check on the rest time.

But im actually wondering why Arctic Monkeys and not other music artists that are more requested. Im not complaining though.

This is cool………but why not focus on the biggest acs of all time as a priority?

Great article! But I don’t understand how their sales stand at 65,000 in Spain while AM sold 110,000 copies there alone, I’m pretty sure the latter is the one that’s wrong 😉
