Conclusions

As expected Laundry Service closes up counts as the most successful album of Shakira. At more than 16,7 million EAS across all formats, it is a highly valuable record which continues to grow.

Although the runner up stands much lower, on 8 million EAS, there is much more to say about her discography. Both Oral Fixation, Vol 2 and Dónde Están los Ladrones? are virtually tied at this second spot. It’s all the more impressive for the latter since it is a Spanish record.

Pies Descalzos, Fijación Oral, Vol. 1 and Sale El Sol are all around 5 million EAS. All Spanish records, that means 4 out of her top 6 are in her native language. Stunning. If She Wolf, Shakira. and El Dorado suffer from the absence of ground breaking global smashes like the remaining albums, they all maintained a healthy consistency. Each of them breaks 2 million EAS to date with the most recent one still increasing at very fast pace.

All in all, the artist sold 58,6 million EAS to date. While this is already a great achievement for a mainly Spanish language singer, the fact she is now over 6 million units from streams alone is highly promising for the future. Her back catalog also performs very well in this format. The massive market increases currently seen in Latin America, an area which jumped by more than 17,7% in 2017, are also paving a golden road for Shakira.

To go deeper…

Thanks to our new ASR (Artist Success Rating) concept, we know that her sales represent 13,8 million times the purchase of her full catalog. Coupled with her total sales, it translates into an ASR score of 161. She is tied with Ed Sheeran and ahead of Usher and Katy Perry.

Additionally, 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.

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
