Biggest CSPC Songs of the 2000s

After studying the biggest songs of the current decade, let’s continue our travel through the past with the biggest songs of the 2000s! At first glance, the biggest artists were Britney Spears and Beyoncé for female artists, Eminem for male singers, Coldplay and Linkin Park for bands. Does one of these artists top the list of the biggest songs of the 2000s? Are there surprises among the top 10? You will find the answer in this new Data Collector list!

The songs ranked here have been released from January 1, 2000 up to December 31, 2009. All figures are given in EAS (equivalent album sales). They include audio and video streams, downloads, ringtones but also a weighted share of the album they helped to sell.

Please keep in mind that some artists who released big hits this decade have not been studied so far, e.g. 50 Cent, EvanescenceNelly or Susan Boyle. All figures reflect the value as collected at the time of the artist’s respective articles (CSPC article or Streaming Masters). You can check the list of artists that have been tracked at this link.

A lot of lists like this one are available inside the Data Collector, so feel free to read them to gauge how your favorite artist charts on them.

Hi MJD! Is there any chance of having a breakdown of sales per coubtry/continent of I’m Alive by Céline Dion.

Malg

If We Belong Together is on the list, why isn’t Don’t Cha? It reached #1 on 20 charts and top 10 in almost every chart it charted on (except 3), so I assume it would be at least on the list?

César

Because the artist that made it hasn’t been studied

Nuno

Amazing that on 3/4 decade of activity Madonna was still able to have 3 songs on this list TOP 100!
Amazing as well are U2 having 2 songs here and one of them being #02!

Agustin

In The Lady Gaga´s CSPC Say that poker face has sold 24 Million copies on digital sales, why here say that Poker Face only sod 6 Million?

Kris

All your answers are in the text at the top of the article…

“All figures are given in EAS (equivalent album sales). They include audio and video streams, downloads, ringtones but also a weighted share of the album they helped to sell.”

“Please keep in mind that some artists who released big hits this decade have not been studied so far”

Agustin

I read that Hips Don´t Lie is the most sold song of the 2000’s, its true?

Nick bret

Hollaback girl and The Sweet escape??
