Just like with physical sales, Shakira is someway poorly represented by digital sales. English-speaking countries, most notably the US and the UK have been by very, very far the leading downloads markets along with South Korea. In these markets, among global stars of the last 15 years the diva is likely one of those who’s getting the lowest share of their sales there.

It doesn’t mean she hasn’t sold some downloads though, she clearly did, even getting as high as 11 million with the gigantic smash Hips Don’t Lie. In total, she is over 56 million downloads and ringtones in her lifetime.

Her spanish catalogue is waaaaay bigger.

Her first album has an unique certified on her country. And billboard itself said she sold 1,2 milion copies in brazil on her debut album.

I believe in you and in your data, but try a little to look better at south american market. Shakira is a power of nature here
