Are you able to update her sales? I want to see her super bowl’s performance impact on her sales!

Alexander Rodriguez

But in 2012 Shakira said that Laundry Service has sold 20 millions https://www.facebook.com/5027904559/posts/10150830049184560/

Debers

Accordinf to you, “Try Everything” had 1.08 million digital sales until 2018 but in 2019 the RIAA updated it to 2x Platinum and BPI gave it Silver (Total – 2,2 Million) taking into account that it was launched around the world the number grows even more, could you explain this to me MJD?

This is all fake because: •Billboard stated that Shakira had sold 10 million album units in Latin America *before 2001*, that Donde Estan Los Ladrones was close to 900k in the US in 2005, and that Laundry Service has sold 13 million copies worldwide until 2005. So the sales of Pies Descalzos and Donde Estan Los Ladrones are not real. https://books.google.it/books?id=4RQEAAAAMBAJ&pg=PA23&lpg=PA23&dq=billboard+shakira+13+million+laundry+service&source=bl&ots=IDKTkEOoY3&sig=ACfU3U1MvvoDV_p6DL95ZxNa3XRDnt8OSg&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwi3s8yuyMzqAhXIfZoKHeYRDooQ6AEwCXoECAQQAQ •Shakira herself in 2012 reported that Laundry Service has sold 20 million copies worldwide, so even the laundry service data is fake. https://m.facebook.com/5027904559/posts/10150830049184560/ •in 2007 BMI reported that Pies Descalzos had sold 5 million copies, and Oral Fixation 8… Read more »

The “10 million copies in Latin America only” is completely nonsense, in most Latin countries an artist get a platinum certification for sales between 3,000 and 150,000 and Laundry Service was not selling at millions in the biggest Latin markets as Brazil (it sold 150,000 there less than Pies Descalzos and Donde están…) and Mexico (it sold less than 500,000 there) where those millions came from?. Billboard can’t say nothing about sales, except those that came from United Stated, thanks to Nielsen Soundscan. The thing is for years there’s no way to know about artists sales, fans and record companies… Read more »

This data is the fakest thing I’ve ever read. She has sold more than that, as official sources have confirmed throughout the years. Do it again with more research, thanks.

MJD, I’ve heard several times over the years that Shakira has been a consistent seller in Near Eastern and Middle Eastern countries. I wouldn’t be surprised if she was popular in India because I know they’re fond of Latin music. What do we know of her actual sales in those areas ? I’m sorry if you already answered that question, I haven’t found any answer in the comments.

Chika

You can check the studies of the MENA and India by Al to check her streaming numbers there, but I don’t know if there’s any information on the site about her actual sales.

Al

Her sales in India are very strong with Laundry Service at 160k and a career total likely past 300k. This makes her one of the very best selling international acts there. I’ve read some huge download claims for her as well

Jose

“Ciega Sordomuda” entered the Top 10 of Spain, remained on the chart for 2 weeks. Are you sure I can’t sell anything there?

See this is problamatic. Example: In Colombia Pies Descalzos was certified Diamond Prism for 1M copies by ANSINCOL and that was in 1996. Source: https://books.google.co.za/books?id=sQkEAAAAMBAJ&pg=PA64&dq=shakira+billboard+million&redir_esc=y#v=onepage&q=shakira%20billboard%20million&f=false

Peter

Not many people, but billboard wouldn’t report on it if they didn’t know what it stood for, right?

Nicolás

Hey, Tere are some things wrong, for example, Shakira. was certified diamond in Colombia for selling 200k
