Beyoncé albums and songs sales

CSPC Beyonce albums and songs sales

Per Forbes, by the time Beyoncé released her last proper album Lemonade in 2016, she was worth $265 million. She is now up to $450 million.

It reveals how successful the superstar has been on several industries, to the surprise of nobody.

She now faces one of her strongest challenges yet. After smashing the physical era in her 20s with the Destiny’s Child and the download era in her 30s solo, now in her 40s, she returns with her first album to embrace the streaming world.

Undoubtedly, Beyoncé has been growing a lot since the days of No, No, No hit single way back in 1998.

The power women managed to become an icon for each community, females, blacks, and LGBT+.

She is also regarded as an accomplished women in her private life. She married rap legend Jay-Z, together, they are parents of 3 children.

As she sings on Formation, “I dream it, I work hard, I grind ’til I own it“. It’s difficult to contradict her, as it feels that she has the skills to turn everything into gold.

It all started in a very standard way with a string of successful eras with her group from 1998 to 2001.

It’s during this period that she met and started to date Jay-Z. Retrospectively, this meeting can be regarded as a tremendous event for the music industry as a whole.

The relationship obviously brought several key hits to Beyoncé but the pair’s combined strengths also enabled them to invest in various brands from the Brooklyn Nets to TIDAL, developing more and more their status as business powerhouses.

The music industry is harsh though. As the main consumers are from 12 to 25, the have little memory, and identify better with singers in their own age range.

While wonder how much of a Renaissance her upcoming album will be, we review her discography up to date.

As usual, I’ll be using the Commensurate Sales to Popularity Concept in order to relevantly gauge her results. This concept will not only bring you sales information for all Beyoncé‘s albums, physical and download singles, as well as audio and video streaming. In fact, it will also determine their true popularity.

If you are not yet familiar with the CSPC method, below is a nice and short video of explanations. I fully recommend watching it before getting into the sales figures. Of course, if you are a regular visitor feel free to skip the video and get into the numbers directly.

The Commensurate Sales to Popularity Concept (CSPC)

There are two ways to understand this revolutionary concept. In the first place, there is this Scribe video posted below. If you are unaware of the CSPC method, you will get the full idea within just a pair of minutes.

If you are a mathematical person, and want to know the full method as well as formulas, you can read the full introduction article.

Now let’s get into the artist’s sales figures in detail in order to apply this concept and define the act’s true popularity!

Beyoncé Album Sales

CSPC Beyonce album sales breakdowns

Original Album Sales – Comments

CSPC Beyonce album sales list

Now totaling 37.14 million copies sold, Beyonce‘s studio albums eventually topped sales of those from the Destiny’s Child in 2016.

As the solo star has now 9 albums, including 6 traditional ones, more than her past group, the fact that she topped them only now may sound surprising.

That only her debut LP reached the 10-million barrier is also quite intriguing considering how many 10-million sellers came out in the last 20 years, including sets from artists way less talked about these days like James Blunt or Dido.

The comparison with the Destiny’s Child isn’t completely fair through as 1999-2001 market was arguably much bigger than 2003+ years in terms of album sales.

Download sales took off during the Dangerously In Love era and slowed down only to be replaced by streaming. It means that music consumption got spread over more formats during the career of the diva.

How does the comparison stands after accounting for all those distinct formats?

Beyoncé songs sales

Below, we list down results from the artist through physical sales, digital sales and streaming.

Please be aware that when the artist is regarded as the lead act, he is rewarded with 100% of these units, while featured acts share among them a 50% piece of the totals.

Physical singles

Physical Singles

CSPC Beyoncé physical singles sales

As a reminder, the weighting is done with a 10 to 3 ratio between one album and one physical single.

Naturally, the physical single market is not favorable for Beyoncé as downloads replaced them very early in her career.

Results reveal it very clearly, as her top 3 sellers are all from the Dangerously In Love era.

With 677,500 sales, Crazy In Love remains the biggest, with both Baby Boy and ’03 Bonnie & Clyde over the 400,000 mark.

If we look at every song close to 200,000 sales and more, and there are 10, they are all from her first two albums.

She released few proper hit single in recent years too, so there are no collector items to take over sales from this avenue.

In fact, Best Thing I Never Had, which is now a decade old, is her latest CD single.

Her career total in this format adds for nearly 4 million copies, including 3.38 million from Dangerously In Love and B’Day‘s singles.

Download music iTunes Amazon Google Melon

Digital Songs

CSPC Beyonce digital singles sales

As a reminder, the weighting is done with a 10 to 1.5 ratio between one album and one digital single.

Downloads and ringtones were nearly non-existent in Dangerously In Love years, but the huge catalog appeal of its songs, created an impressive 17.6 million sales.

The prime example is modern day classic Crazy In Love, which is over 7 million sales.

It isn’t an isolated case as the album contains no less than 6 million sellers. Impressive.

Digital sales were starting to get relevant by the period of B’Day.

It benefited from this context to shift a huge 27.8 million singles, with more than 10.7 million coming from Irreplaceable alone.

This song sold about 3.7 million units in each downloads and ringtones in the US alone.

Listen, at 4.82 million, ended up as the biggest hit from the Dreamgirls soundtrack. Please note that the majority of the remaining 2.96 million sales for the soundtrack are from Jennifer Hudson songs.

We list all these numbers in order to get a complete overview of the soundtrack success, but these sales will be removed from Beyoncé‘s personal total in the final tables.

The format was reaching its peak when I Am… Sasha Fierce came out, generating an unbelievable 47.7 million units, including nearly 32 million from the massive trio of smashes Singles Ladies – Halo – If I Were A Boy.

The album produced no less than 9 million sellers, and it still leaves space for the remaining tracks to shift 2 million on their own!

You got it, Beyonce is a massive digital seller. She managed these figures thanks to over-par ringtones but also tremendous Asian success. Halo, Listen, Honesty, Best Thing I Never Had, Love on Top and Telephone combine for a whopping 10 million sales in South Korea alone.

From 4Beyonce failed to produce monster hits. It was in part due to the collapse of ringtones which made it more difficult. Her consistency remained impressive though. Songs from the 2011 album sold close to 20 million units combined.

With Beyonce, she lost a second strong avenue for her. Its songs sold a mere 10% of 4 hits in South Korea. They sold almost 11 million in total, a decent total but nothing close to the numbers she used to move.

Drunk in Love was easily the top track at 3.28 million, with 70% of its sales coming from the US.

Although it had no proper hit, Lemonade saw its downloads fueled by its absence on main streaming platforms, making up for the decrease of downloads market. That’s how it still shifted 7.7 million units.

All told, she is now up to 164 million digital units sold. This figure may surprise as much as impress. Most of the time we gauge these sales mostly thanks to the data from the US and the UK. 

Beyonce fully enjoyed the two factors that can bring notable additions in spite of staying pretty anonymous, the aforementioned ringtones and Asian sales.

Both are now mostly gone, but until the release of smartphones the former were selling at a pace almost as high as downloads. The latter refers mostly to Japan and South Korea where she sold past 25 million units. This catapults her total to such an incredible number.

Streaming platforms numbers

Streaming

Streaming is made up of audio and video streams. Our CSPC methodology includes both to better reflect the real popularity of each track. The main source of data for each avenue is respectively Spotify and YouTube. To factor in the growing impact of multiple Asian countries where these platforms aren’t always the go-to site for music streaming, more sources have been added.

In order to account for their real popularity in each relevant country, the below sources have been used along with the mentioned ratios that reflect the market share of each area.

Audio Streams
– South Korea: Genie streams * 2.20 (consistent with Gaon streaming numbers)
– Japan: AWA streams * 68 / 4 (AWA has 4% of the Japanese streaming market, and 32% are already considered through Spotify’s extrapolation)
– Arabic world: Anghami streams
– Sub-Saharan Africa: Boomplay + Audiomack streams
– Elsewhere: Spotify streams * 649 / 406 (649 million subscribers of global platforms like Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, YouTube Music, Deezer, etc. against 406 million from Spotify itself) + Genie streams * 2.20 (uses Genie rather than Spotify to extrapolate markets like Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam)

Video Streams
– China* : QQ video streams * 50 if the song is available for audio stream, QQ video streams * 5 elseway (scale built based on known figures for several major artists)
– Elsewhere : Youtube views increased by 10% to account for various local platforms

*since Chinese streaming platforms are mostly video streaming platforms, their streams are weighted on par with YouTube streams.

Audio Stream value – 1,500 plays equal 1 album unit
Video Stream value – 6,750 views equal 1 album unit

Equivalent Albums Sales (EAS) = ( Spotify * 649/406 + Genie * 2.20 * 2 + AWA * 68 / 4 + Anghami + Boomplay + Audiomack ) / 1500 + ( QQ views* 50(or 5) + YouTube * 1.1 ) / 6750

Top Hits

CSPC Beyonce top streaming hits

The most streamed songs from Beyoncé are pretty weird in a way. Several reasons lead to a top 5 that seems quite surprising at first.

Halo was nowhere near as big as Singles Ladies and If I Were a Boy upon release, but someway it went on to become far and away the 00s female song with the best lasting appeal. It topped a billion on Spotify and 2 billion on YouTube.

Crazy In Love, her 2003 solo hit, is a stunning runner up. The track just ended to crack a billion streams on Spotify, while it got there some time back on YouTube.

In 3rd position is the effective biggest streaming hit, Coldplay‘s Hymn For The Weekend, but Beyoncé is awarded 50% of its equivalent album sales due to her feature condition.

She shares credit with Ed Sheeran on Perfect Duet, but she is part of only one of the 3 major versions. Hers still adds for 850,000 EAS.

It’s only after these songs that we start to see the ones we would expect on top like Drunk in Love, Single Ladies, If I Were a Boy, and more, while we still waiting for tracks from her last album Lemonade, or even Everything Is Love.

Beyoncé, the 2013 album, came out just beffore the explosion of streaming. Her big 2006-2011 albums were released even before, so performance of their tracks entirely rely on their catalog appeal, which isn’t always reflective of the original chart peaks.

Lemonade was first issued on TIDAL only. This strongly limited its streaming impact, while boosting its pure sales. It explains why the highest ranked song from the album, Formation, is outside of her top 10.

As for Everything Is Love, the album failed to gain traction. Rather than appealing to everyone, it alienated fan bases of both Jay-Z and Beyoncé.

It’s worth noting the overall strenght of her catalog. Every song in her top 40 has over 100 million streams, which is incredible considering the average age of these songs.

Totals are also outstanding. The 2008 effort I Am… Sasha Fierce records 4.25 million equivalent album sales from streaming.

Career-wise, she is up to 18.79 billion streams on Spotify and 24.84 billion on YouTube.

Beyoncé compilations sales

It sounds fairly logical to add together weighted sales of one era – studio album, physical singles, downloads, streams – to get the full picture of an album’s popularity. For older releases though, they also generate sales of various live, music videos and compilation albums.

All those packaging-only records do not create value, they exploit the value originating from the parent studio album of each of its tracks instead. Inevitably, when such compilations are issued, this downgrades catalog sales of the original LP. Thus, to perfectly gauge the worth of these releases, we need to re-assign sales proportionally to its contribution of all the compilations which feature its songs. The following table explains this method.

The distribution process

CSPC Beyonce Experience Live distribution

How to understand this table? In the example of The Beyoncé Experience Live, these figures mean it sold 1,150,000 units worldwide. The second statistics column means all versions of all the songs included on this package add for 3,990,765 equivalent album sales from streams of all types.

The second part on the right of the table shows how many equivalent streams are coming from each original album, plus the share it represents on the overall package.

Thus, streaming figures tell us songs from the Dangerously In Love album are responsible for 54% of The Beyoncé Experience Live track list attractiveness. This means it generated 618,000 of its 1,150,000 album sales and so forth for the other records. We then apply this process to all compilations present on the table.

Compilations sales figures listing

CSPC Beyonce compilation list

While she has no compilation album to her name, Beyoncé‘s reputation of amazing performance enabled her to sell an awful lot of music videos.

She issued as many as 8 big ones which total 4.28 million sales. On top of that, she released two dozens of side records, from EP of bonus tracks to 2-CD boxes, while also participating strongly on soundtracks like The Fighting Temptations and Cadillac Records.

The large majority of these sales are powered by the trio Dangerously In Love – B’Day – I Am… Sasha Fierce.

Full Length related records Sales – Summary

Here is the most underestimated indicator of an album’s success – the amount of compilation sales of all kinds it generated.

Due to the dependency of sales of the original studio albums on these releases, they are a key piece of the jigsaw. 

These numbers are obtained by applying the method from the section The distribution process to all packages listed under Compilation sales figures listing category.

Beyoncé Career CSPC Results

CSPC Beyonce albums and songs sales

So, after checking all the figures, how many overall equivalent album sales has each album by Beyoncé achieved? Well, at this point we hardly need to add up all of the figures defined in this article!

Albums CSPC results

Beyonce perfectly switched from the Destiny’s Child to her solo career with the smash era Dangerously In Love. Shifting 10 million pure album sales, the record has been a force in every metrics.

Released several years before the digital period, it still moved an impressive 4.9 million equivalent album sales there. It’s up to 18 million in total.

B’Day comes as an impressive sophomore effort with a total closing in 14 million EAS. It generated plenty of downloads and ringtones upon release and continues to be successful on streaming.

I Am… Sasha Fierce completes a perfect trio. It is one of the rare albums with more than 7 million EAS from both pure album sales and downloads.

It also crushes the competition on streaming, its stunning climb has now brought it to the magical 20 million mark.

Among the 20 most successful 2000s albums, she is the only singer with 3 entries, and that doesn’t even consider the Destiny’s Child‘s Survivor!

4, Beyonce and Lemonade are all on a lower league but they maintain very healthy numbers.

The first two are on their way to hit 10 million, while they combine for nearly 25 million EAS. The most interesting part is obviously their huge streaming results which will grant them continuous sales in the future.

Among side projects, Dreamgirls did well as it tops 4 million sales, while the same can’t be said about both Everything Is Love and The Lion King: The Gif, which won’t be able to do much more than hitting a million.

Up to date, Beyonce stands at 89.75 million equivalent album sales. With the upcoming release of Renaissance, she will it 90 million instantly.

Singles CSPC results

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.

Omg I love your site so much. I often use it as a source for my college researchs. Anyways, is there a JLo analysis on the way? Pleaaaase!!! I need accurate information about her so-called-popularity.
Thank you for everything you’ve done and thanks in advance <3

Carre

Why in the Lady Gaga article did you put Telephone her third best selling song with 4,430,000 and in Beyonce it is the tenth most sold song with only 1,720,000?

KantClark

Because Telephone has different weight in Bey and Gaga’s EAS sales. For Gaga Telephone generated more EAS sales .

Carre

Ah, ok thanks!

Terrance

her sales in asia is really surprising, maybe bigger than rihanna

RLAAMJR.

If you’re talking about pure album sales, then you are right. In Asia, Beyonce has 2,550,00 while Rihanna has 1,910,000.

raimond

I have a question regarding Lemonade sales. Something feels a bit strange and I am glad you can clarify. At the end of the 2016 you said Lemonade sold 2,5M (on par with the IFPD report) and I assume sales=shipments at that point, 8 months later from the release. In the breakdown she sold a ratio less than 2:1 USA vs rest of the World (1,6 vs 0,9). Since then she add 300k in the USA, but only 70K in the rest of the world, a ratio more than 4:1. She constantly keeps good positions in the Itunes charts in… Read more »

RLAAMJR.

Sorry to say this but I’d put Britney and Rihanna over Beyonce as the bigger music artists. Yes Beyonce can sing and dance better than Britney and Rihanna but even Madonna outshone the Vocal Female Trinity by a huge mile. Pure album sales Bney: 76,380,000 Bey: 35,500,000 Rih: 33,100,000 EAS Bney: 100,827,000 Rih: 86,846,000 Bey: 74,052,000 Beyonce may have bigger networth and more successful tours but Britney is good at it too. Rihanna may not have impressive number but she has the highest number of platinum singles and 14 #1 singles in the US Billboard Hot 100. Beyonce gets more… Read more »

It’s funny when someone try to put down Beyonce’s impact in music just looking for album or single sales and ignoring all the other spheres involved in this haha. But keep trying, buddy. After Lemonade Era and Beychella there is not much to discuss about this. 🙂

IvyLeague

It’s really not that cut and dry. Britney has 9 albums Rihanna has 8. Bey 6. Britney benifited greatly from a peak in physical sales and tappered off. Rih has an iron fist in digital sales. Beyonce pulls from both sectors. U.S Chart wise: Britney has 5 #1s. One she shares with Rihanna. Beyonce-5, recentlty 6 Rihanna- 14 Top 10s Britney- 13 Beyonce- 18 Rihanna- 31 Top 40s Britney- 27 Beyonce- 39 Rihanna- 51 The results are almost similar worldwide. Again. I am not even sure why Britney continues to be interjected into the conversation. She has lagged behind other… Read more »

RLAAMJR.

Britney’s 100million eas is kind of unattainable (but maybe not on Rih’s case)because Rihanna would need to release 2-3 more albums (based on anti’s total cspc) to possibly surpass Britney’s numbers, which Britney may have release one more album.

Based on lemonade total eas, I dont think Beyonce can surpass Britney’s total eas. Bey would need to release prolly 4-5 more albums to outEAS Britney. Its just a long time to predict Bey can surpass Britney’s numbers so it’s safe to say Bey wont reach Britney’s eas numbers.

IvyLeague

We cant predict the future or what each lady will release. But data tells us that Beyonce has an average eas over her 6 eras that outpaces Britneys 9. Yes sales are falling but the growth in streaming shouldnt be underestimated and do add up over time. Again, Britneys catalog and newer singles have been moving slow vs Beyonces and Rihanna’s. At this point its futile for Britney to keep releasing albums that do half the total of the last. Brings her average and legacy down. Antis last update was at 5.2 million. Maybe we can say 5.5 now. Meanwhile… Read more »

RLAAMJR.

We shall see who among us predicted accurately. All I can say that seeing how low the eas of lemonade is, Beyonce is slowly going down. And i dont think she can stay relevant and strong on her next 3 future albums. Prolly an average of 1-2 pure album sales and estimated average of 3 million on others, so thats like 5 million eas on her every future album. As for Rihanna, I can still see her earning more #1 songs and still strong at streaming with her albums having an average of 5-8 million eas per album. And she’s… Read more »

KantClark

Beyoncé is healthy and take care a lot with her career. She probably will release albums for a long time. I don’t see she stopping working until the 60 at least. And she is strong in streaming. Britney pratically ended her selling force and is weak on catalog and streams. I see Beyoncé outselling Britney’s EAS with no difficulties in a long run.

Rashad

to add, she did those numbers without updating her first 5 albums after 1-2 years of its release. i can see her solidly passing her after a sales update. and as for rihanna she will continue to do well commercially but in sales, she underperforms considering she has been a mainstream artist her whole career.

FreakyDicky

Omg yes! I’m pretty sure DIL sold 12M + pure ww.

Bday should be at 10M pure by now.

IASF 11M+ pure.

Where can I find the pure & streaming sales combined for the singles page? Where does it show Halo selling 17 million streaming equivalent singles?

Stephon

Thank you MJD!

KantClark

MJD, Can you post the Listen’s sales breakdown? I know it is a huge catalog seller but i’m very surprised with this huge number.

Listen – 5,690,000

KantClark

MJD is far far away to be a bey stan haha. I already confronted him because of some negative coments about Beyoncé. How I had predicted Bey is very undercertified in a lot of countries. Columbia seems doesn’t care to update her catalog and makes she looks sell less than she does.

Teca

You’ve given her nearly 30 million singles since the last update of this article. Why not put 200 million singles at once? The clowning was already embarrassing.

I’m quitting this site.

isaiah

then leave already and quit arguing, your obsessive hatred of Beyoncé is showing (typical Navy/Brit Army/Little Monster)

I’m leaving because of all of these lies, it’s so much for me. If you want to stay here to being comfortable about all Beyoncé’s lies, you’re welcome, i’m not. =)

PS: Get ready Michael Jackson, Bey is coming for your head when she reach 300mi records sold by 2020 in this nonsense site despite being selling 5m records per era (and decreasing, even with using black people and other excluded niches for sell her bad stuff)

RLAAMJR.

Teca, please do leave and never post on this site. You are unwanted here. And you are wrong.

Ok i got it. The 3 million copies from this absurd article came from Venus, where Gaga performed in 2013, lol.

Did Jay Z also buy this site to lie and cheat in favor of his wife? Already enough Forbes, Pitchfork, and all the means of communication that he can manipulate in favor of his beloved…

Joking Jay z =), don’t send me yours private assassins for shut my mouth up.

You did not say anything to me, you did not answer me. It did not prove right and I was wrong, just like any Beyoncé fan is. And if the ATRL has the least notion and partiality that does not exist here, I’d rather stay right there. Bye beystan.

Drag her MJD!

It’s always a shame when some people feel the need to be insulting. I suggest if you have such information then create your own site and be open for the opinion of others.
