Streaming Masters – Panic! at the Disco

Panic! at the Disco started off big in the US with their 2003 debut A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out, but never managed repeat the success or reaching other markets with their next albums. Ironcially, 15 years into their career with all members gone except lead singer Brendon Urie did the “band” manage to get a global hit with High Hopes ! But how many streaming units is their entire catalog worth?

Method

As detailed in the Fixing Log articleSpotify 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

Results

Total: 5,068,758 EAS
