Figures listed in this section reflect pure sales of long playing formats, either albums, compilations or videos. Streams are excluded.

CSPC Bad Bunny album sales breakdown


Bad Bunny Songs Sales

Figures listed in this section reflect all metrics of songs’ sales, these are audio streams, video streams, and sales (physical singles, downloads, ringtones).

These numbers are converted into Equivalent Albums Sales (EAS), formula below.

( Spotify streams * Latin Ratio + Genie streams * 3.05*2 + AWA streams * 100/5.5 ) / 1500 + ( QQ views* 50(or 5) + YouTube views ) / 11750 + Digital sales (DL+RT) * 0.15 + Physical sales * 0.30

Latin Ratio = Spotify market share in Latin America minus Brazil is estimated at 77.5%. Bad Bunny gains 81% of his streams there. The US represent 16.3% of his streams, among which Spotify covers 48%. Elsewhere, the standard ratio of 310/207 is in use. All together, these numbers set the Latin Ratio at 72.40%.

In case a song was a non-Latin crossover, like Cardi B‘s I Like It or Drake‘s helped MIA, the standard ratio is used.

Bad Bunny stands at 32,448,000 equivalent album sales after a 5 years career.

He decided to entirely skip paid-for sales, barely releasing physical products and adopting the productivity that is a key to success in a streaming dominated industry. Few do it as well as him.

The list is compiled in album equivalent sales generated by each song. Therefore, these figures are not merged units of singles formats. Instead, it includes weighted sales of the song’s physical single, download, ringtone and streaming as well as its share among sales of all albums on which it is featured.

Will this artist have any problems to double that CSPC number in his career? Is Bad Bunny already guaranteed a 70-80 Million CSPC career?

Johndsu

hello, excellent job, could you study Gloria Estefan, between Gloria and Shakira, who is the best-selling Latin artist of all time.

Analord

Santana might qualify as the “best-selling Latin artist of all time”, as for Gloria vs Shakira I think Gloria might be a little above.

binderella

Impressive numbers. Also glad to see that you guys have a Latin ratio for streaming. It would be nice if you guys had a similar ratio for US-urban based acts. Although it is unlikely that the heavy hitters, such as Lil Baby and NBA YoungBoy, would ever be studied on this site, I do think it is needed for artists like Drake. Applying the current standard ratio would give albums like Future Nostalgia with astronomical Spotify streams miles more Apple Music streams than Lil Baby and co albums, even though that is not the case; Summer Walker’s ‘Over It’ was… Read more »

Fanofpop

I’m not sure if it’s more a US ratio that’s needed (because of the 48 percent)
or a Europe ratio (as Spotify is proportionally bigger in europe)

Gus

He is the leader of the latin explosion. Streaming platforms were the gasoline that fueled this movement.
I am from Argentina and now, after years of market depression, a lot of artists are surging collecting millions of streams and gaining popularity in other latin countries. Particularly the producer BIZARRAP. He doesn’t sing/rap, but he’s got the beats and his tracks are very popular (he is something like a local Timbaland or Mark Ronson). Is he successful enough to be studied?

El Jolito

I couldn’t tell you one Bad bunny song!

Martin

Yes, we do not seem to go for foreign voices at all.

Saying that, I’ve listened to a few of his tracks, on the back of his excellent streaming numbers and I’m baffled to his popularity! It all seems to be sung/rapped in a kind of silly, sort of comedic voice. It all seems rather childish sounding to me!

Martin

Yeah, I’m stumped by it all and not just him. I’ve listen to a few similar acts to Bad Bunny, like Ozuna and I just don’t get it or the appeal.

I wouldn’t say I was a fan of the Asian stuff either but having also listened to a few acts, I can at least see the appeal.

I guess the difference with the UK and US is, that there is a far greater diaspora from Spanish speaking countries, in the US, not so much in UK.

You should take a holiday trip to Latin America and you will understand the appeal.
Although I am not a fan, reggaeton/latin trap music is inescapable.
Particularly Bad Bunny releases a lot of stuff, so you end up liking a song here and there and at the end of the day you realize you like a handful of hits.

Martin

I’d love to take a trip to Central/South America/Caribbean but sadly I don’t think it would change my opinion on this style of music, Gus.

I have listened to a reasonable amount of Reggaeton, Dancehall and old style Reggae etc and I just think it’s not for me. I really do not like the style or delivery of the vocals, I like some of the music but prefer music with more straight forward singing. Also, I’m not a fan of a lot of their videos and imagery, again it’s just not something that appeals to me.

I get it. Here it’s something generational… young people listen only to reggaeton/trap. People older than 30 Y.O. usually don’t understand it and say music from the (insert the decade you want, 80s, 90s, etc) was better, they played instruments, they sang, blah blah blah…
What I meant is that here, that music is everywhere that it becomes background music even if you don’t like it. It’s massive.

Martin

Yes, I think the streaming numbers for some of those Latin artists demonstrates just how outstandingly popular it is. Music wise, it’s not so much a generational thing for me (although that does slightly factor into it) and I have no issues with artists who don’t play “proper instruments”, as I love a lot of techno, rave, ambient, trance, EDM etc. Also, maybe the generational thing swings both ways, as it doesn’t seem as though those artists, given their lyrics, visual imagery etc says much about or to older generations, whereas artists like say Adele or Coldplay are more fluid… Read more »

MJD I’ve listened to some of his songs but it just goes through me, I don’t get it.

Not even “I LIKE IT”? by Cardi B, Bad Bunny and J Balvin?????

Martin

I really like the music in “I LIke It” but again the vocals just annoy me, especially Cardi B, I really do not like how she delivers her lyrics. I find her really, really annoying and grating on the whole, not just this track.

ojd

guessing you didn’t love wap aha

NO, I think it’s bloody awful but not as bad or annoying as that Bodak Yellow shit. WTF is that all about, woman sounds like she has some kind of illness, that affects her speech.

I find the lyrics quite funny and fair play to them for saying whatever they want, but I just can’t get with that annoying delivery of hers and how she sounds.

Dan

I have no idea who Bad Bunny is. Patiently waiting for Deep Purple.

Fanofpop

Thank you for this update
Expected bigger numbers bc of Spotify, but I didn’t realise how streaming centric he was.
Still insanely huge (biggest artist to debut in the past 5 years?)

When is deep purple coming out?

Molly

If I’m not wrong that distinction goes to Post Malone actually

Eminemfan

I never understood why didn’t he make ipfi artist list, when he is monster on streaming. I guess that list is revenue based.

Rodolfo Queiroz Laterza

Is Deep Purple’s study finishing? Just asking but I and various are waiting…

Martin

Various parts have been completed but unfortunately the article is not quite ready for publication as yet.

Rodolfo Queiroz Laterza

Thank you for sharing these update. I wonder the complexity and huge amount of data because Deep Purple hás 21 studio albums and dozens of compilation and live albums. Is there a prediction? Greetings and have a nice day!

Martin

Im not too sure, I’ve completed quite a bit of research towards it but the other guys still need to finish it off and I’m not too sure how much they still have to do, as they’ve been concentrating on those short CSPCs and updating acts like Taylor, Drake, Rihanna etc.

Yes they have a ridiculous amount of compilations, live albums, box sets, videos etc. I was shocked just how many, in total I compiled track lists from 254 such products and that’s not including their studio albums!!!

Rodolfo Queiroz Laterza

Wow, that is unbelievable amount…really impressive! 254 only considering compilations, lives, box sets…

And the main sales are placed around 21 studio albums…

They are a legend and highly loved band in all world with a huge fan base.

Martin

Yes, everything from those 254 products, gets apportioned into the relevant studio album or their orphan album.

What struck me most, was the amount of cheap and nasty comps/live albums they have. They clearly do not exert the same kind of stringent control over their catalogue that say Led Zeppelin do and as such have licensed their music out to various territories and various labels,

Those labels in turn have released some pretty substandard products, some of them are complete copies of previous comps, with pretty much the same track lists, titles and artwork!

Must be a nightmare to go trough, just like the discography of Pearl Jam and Grateful Dead to name a few.

Martin

It definitely is, their catalogue is just so cluttered up by pointlessly regurgitated compilations, live albums etc

Mind you, I’d imagine Purples catalogue, as difficult and annoying as it is to compile, will be a walk in the park compared to someone like Sinatra!

ojd

i must admit i’m not very familiar with deep purple- i only know smoke on the water- are they an act that has lots of consistency or do they have one main album that most people associate with them and how big are they as a whole are we looking at a total around 60m or more like 80m

Martin

I’ll not give too much away but IMO their popularity hasnt aged as well as say Sabbaths or Zeppelins, two bands they are often mentioned alongside, as the originators of hard rock/heavy metal. It’s strange that time has been kinder to Sabbath than Purple, who in the 70s were easily the more successful of the two. While neither act was ever on the same level as Zep on a worldwide scale, Purple were probbly more popular in mainland Europe, this was especially true in Germany, where their albums spent a huge number of weeks at No1. They were also Billboards… Read more »

To humbly contribute and deeply know the band’s history, a few points explain this perception: 1. Deep Purple lost its stability and consequently projected popularity with the departure of Ritchie Blackmore in 1975 after the Stormbringer album. 2. The band’s collapse in 1976 and their 8-year hiatus caused them to suffer the loss of a generation of fans and the maintenance of sales capacity. 3. They worked little on the mystique of the image and hated the press, unlike Led and Black Sabbath. In fact, in the 70s and even in the 80s, sales were higher than Sabbath, I believe… Read more »

Jake

Actually Zeppelin was very US centric, most of their albums were sold there.

Rodolfo Queiroz Laterza

Deep Purple was focused in USA market just 70’s and Perfect Strangers period. They didn’t adapt to show business during MTV era. Therefore in Europe and Japan they mantained a huge fan base.

Martin

And the 60s, where the MKI line up had far more success, than they did in the UK or Europe.

Rodolfo Queiroz Laterza

Excellent remark. Hush, Kentucky Woman were singles with good performance at Billboard charts. At canadian charts as well.

Shades of Deep Purple charted reasonably well too.

I am anxious for the final results.

It’s one of the most mysteries within fonographic outlets: how many records Deep Purple really sold in all career. Neither Ian Gillan or Roger Glover know it according some interviews! It’s a enigma next to being revealed due the glorious work of Chartmasters.

Analord

“It’s strange that time has been kinder to Sabbath than Purple, who in the 70s were easily the more successful of the two.”

Different kind of band though, Sabbath invented metal while Deep Purple is just hard rock (like Zeppelin).

Martin

Don’t really get the correlation between what I said and your statement. Especially since Zeppelin are so much more successful and popular than Sabbath. IMO all three acts were instrumental in the formation of Metal, with both Purple and Sabbath initially being influenced enough by the sound and style of Zeppelin, to change and alter their sound and style. While I would not class Purple as a Metal band, they certainly introduced musical elements that became staples in metal and were certainly regarded as an influence by many metal musicians and bands that followed, such as Maiden, Metallica, Priest, Rammstein,… Read more »

“Don’t really get the correlation between what I said and your statement.”

Well, if your band is considered to be the first metal band a lot of (young) metal fans are gonna be interested in your music.

You seemed to imply that they’re very similar bands, and my point is that they’re not.

Rodolfo Queiroz Laterza

Under this perspective I understand your commentary. But It’s important to point out that Deep Purple was most influential to NWOBHM, speed metal and thrash metal scenes than Black Sabbath, because Deep Purple used much more velocity and rapid rythym sections than Sabbath at various songs originally. Songs like Hard Lovin Man; Speed King; Fireball; Space Trunkin, Flight of the Rat were quintessential to heavy metal genres, for instance. Cream, Hendrix, Blue Cheer, Uriah Heep, Gun, Spirit were essentials to shape heavy metal later. But they were forgot by mainstream media about them influence on heavy metal. But since 80’s… Read more »

Martin

They are in a way, they along with Zep, are regarded as the kind of holy triumvirate of metal and the pioneers of the genre. They were all certainly lumped into the same category by many critics etc of the day such as Lester Bangs etc It is also the case that many metal musicians from the late 70s and 80s, state Purple as a huge influence on their music, It’s just that time, the press and critics have been far kinder to Sabbath than Purple IMO, as well as being far better marketed since the late 90s, As I… Read more »

“As I said in the 80s and 90s Sabbaths star had fallen considerably”

Ozzy sold 30 million albums in the US during the 80s and 90s… By comparison, Deep Purple’s career total in the US is, what, 15 million ? Also, Sabbath were a major influence on 90s and 00s bands (grunge, nu-metal…etc.).

It’s definitely not as simple as “marketing” and “reunion tours”.

Martin

“As I said in the 80s and 90s Sabbaths star had fallen considerably”. I fully stand by that statement because it is not my opinion, it is the truth. Yes, Ozzy done well in the 80s and 90s but not Sabbath and even then I put a lot of that done to the shrewd marketing and management of Sharon Osbourne. Just look at Sabbaths performance even with Ozzy in the band in the late 70s, it was going downhill fast, with albums not even charting in some territories and performing very poorly in their once strong heartlands of the UK… Read more »

“in the 80s and 90s Sabbaths star had fallen considerably”

“sure people still listened to and enjoyed their early albums”

… a little contradictory, isn’t it? 😉

“nobody was really buying or that interested in stuff like 7th Star, Born Again, Headless Cross, The Eternal Idol, TYR etc.”

No one cares about the post-Ozzy and Dio albums, why are you even mentioning them?

Martin

Which is exactly what I am saying, nobody cared about their music in the 80s and 90s or even the later Ozzy albums, hence why I said their star fell, as nobody gave a shit about them anymore. Also, let’s not pretend that their early stuff was still on everybodys lips and selling well on catalogue because it wasn’t. On the other hand Deep Purples stuff in the 80s done reasonably well, going Top 10 and getting to #1 in quite a few countries. That’s not strictly true about the Dio albums, well Heaven & Hell at least, some folk… Read more »

Their early stuff “wasn’t selling well on catalogue” ? I’d really like to know what evidence you’re basing this on…

And remember that the original question was why does Sabbath’s music has more longevity than Deep Purple’s, i.e. why are their classic albums (70-75 + 80) more popular, these obscure post-Ozzy albums that no one has ever cared about are totally irrelevant.

Martin

It wasn’t exactly that, it was “It’s strange that time has been kinder to Sabbath than Purple, who in the 70s were easily the more successful of the two” The fact that their albums spent minimal weeks on the Midline chart in the US and only in 82 and early 83. The fact that their early albums in the US didn’t receive significant increases in certification in 1986 when they were all reappraised, with only Paranoid achieving a Multi Platinum award and Vol 4, SBS and BS never being re-certified after that 86 cert. Again in the US, Sabotage only… Read more »

“Disparaging comment” ? Relax dude, I literally just asked for evidence… Soundscan numbers for Deep Purple (2006) : Machine Head – 325k Made In Japan – 125k In Rock – 45k So about 5-6 times less than Sabbath, in the UK it’s close when it comes to studio albums but Purple’s compilations sold less. If “Sabbaths star had fallen considerably” I guess Purple’s star was buried deep into the ground 😉 Anyway, I totally disagree with this idea that Sabbath had somehow become irrelevant in the 80s and 90s, especially with Ozzy freaking Osborne being highly successful at the time… Read more »

I’ve got no agenda with this, I’m just stating what I believe to be true and for the most part what is true, you seem be coming at this as a fan of Sabbath and trying to defend them.

For gods sake, you’re just being ridiculous now. In the 80s, certainly after Dio left, who’d injected a bit of life into them again, after the debacle of the later years with Ozzy, they died a death, nobody cared about them as an ongoing concern, they became a bit of a joke with different musicians on each album, even different musicians on the same album. They were not irrelevant per se, as people did still value their early work to some extent but they were irrelevant as a current, ongoing entity, which clearly did have some effect on their overall… Read more »

I agree with your position. Several bands were essentials for shaping heavy metal genre, as Uriah Heep, UFO, GUN, Blue Cheer, Hendrix, Cream and others.

Deep Purple is remembered like an idol for so many metal acts , mainly originated from thrash metal, NWOBHM, speed metal scenes.

If we make a strict analysis, even Sabbath was not “heavy metal” in a pure concept, several songs of them show off folk, blues approaches, well far from heavy metal traditional.

Fortunately for them the great media “created” this mystique like being Sabbath as the major pioneer of heavy metal.

It was to do with those acts reaching 100m and because they were very easily compiled and completed.

can’t wait for Deep Purple! I would suggest riding artists like The Kid Laroi, Lil Nas X and Doja Cat for the CSPC Light

I only no a few Juice Wrld songs and I do quite like them so I’m excited for that article, although I imagine a large % of his sales will be Spotify streams anyway I actually have a question, now that you’re doing light CSPC’s does that mean updates of big artists in between legacy act CSPC’s will be less frequent such as Ariana Grande (as she’s about to hit 50m) or others who have released this year or are releasing like Justin, Ed and Bruno, or even artists who could potentially… Read more »
