CSPC: Avicii Popularity Analysis
To pass away at 28 is something that shouldn’t happen. Fan or not, we can only moan such events. The DJ Avicii lost his fight against his demons on April 20, 2018.
From 2012 to 2015, his songs were everywhere. Levels, Wake Me Up and Hey Brother, among others, smashed various charts. The last icon of the long tradition of catchy tunes kings coming from Sweden got his share of success. He led the singles chart for 40 weeks in his homeland over a span of 6 years.
At Chartmasters.org, we haven’t study a DJ’s discography so far. Well known for selling very low amounts of albums, we will see if EDM specialists can build a valuable catalog still.
As usual, I’ll be using the Commensurate Sales to Popularity Concept in order to relevantly gauge his results. This concept will not only bring you sales information for all Avicii‘s albums, physical and download singles, as well as audio and video streaming, but it will also determine their true popularity. If you are not yet familiar with the CSPC method, the next page explains it with a short video. I fully recommend watching the video before getting into the sales figures. Of course, if you are a regular visitor feel free to skip the video and get into the figures.
As a Leona fan，Can I know how much digital sales does “Collide”got ？
Collide sold 175,000 units in the UK but it was much weaker elsewhere, it doesn’t manage to double its sales Worldwide!
Shouldn’t Avīci (01) be divided by 2 since it’s an 18 minute long EP? 😉
Another thing to add is that “Wake Me Up” was at one point the most streamed song on the Spotify platform which I think is worthy of the last page.
I consider the ‘new’ EPs as albums. I apply the EP logic for EPs as in the old days, meaning extended plays / 4 songs. Avici (01) is short in time but it has 6 songs and 2 singles extracted from it that’s why I weighted it as a proper album!
Great job! I love it! I can’t wait to see the next! Sorry for my bad english
Rest in peace Avicii. 🙁
That’s a great way to pay him a tribute!
Instead of Wake Me Up and the “True” era, his data are a little bit low I think, but for a 10 years career, that’s honourable!
