CSPC: Bob Marley Popularity Analysis
Streaming Part 2
Rastaman Vibration looks weak at a strong 89,000 EAS only because of the amazing results of all Marley‘s albums in streams. It still has 3 songs over 10 million on Spotify and its entire track list which tops easily 1 million.
Exodus continues to impress. On Spotify, Three Little Birds is getting closer to 200 million every day while both Jamming and One Love are over 100 million. Don’t get it wrong, those figures aren’t only good for a reggae artist. After checking hundreds and hundreds of albums from the top selling acts of all-time, this is only the 5th pre-2000 album which registers 3 songs over 100 million on Spotify. The remaining four albums are Michael Jackson‘s Thriller, Fleetwood Mac‘s Rumours, Guns N’ Roses‘ Appetite For Destruction and Nirvana‘s Nevermind. This list of utterly iconic albums which accompanies Exodus says it all about its immense popularity. It also has 4 more tracks that destroy the 20 million plateau. The overall total is a groundbreaking 695,000 EAS.
Is This Love enjoyed several recent successful remixes to boost its already amazing streams up to 283 million on Spotify and 302 million on YouTube. It is quite simply the second highest streaming hit from the 70s behind Queen‘s Bohemian Rhapsody. Four more songs are very healthy streaming songs too with more than 15 million plays on both Spotify and YouTube. Every album track is solid as well. These superb numbers add for 512,000 EAS.
