CSPC: Amy Winehouse Popularity Analysis


Digital Singles Sales

Unlike the likes of Adele, Coldplay or Lady Gaga that enjoyed some of the biggest selling albums of the last 10 years, Amy Winehouse‘s singles failed to become major sellers. As incredible as may seem, Valerie apart, she never had a Top 5 single in the UK, in the US, in Germany, in France etc. In Australia, she never managed to get a Top 25 hit.

Still, the digital market was booming in 2007/2008 and her singles, just like her albums, lived much longer than their chart runs suggest. All songs from Back To Black end up with fairly decent sales totals in the downloads format. It brings the singer a comprehensive total of 19,8 million digital singles sold.

As a reminder, the weighting is done with a 10 to 1,5 ratio between one album and one digital single.
