CSPC: Norah Jones Popularity Analysis


Digital Singles Sales

In the past we used to talk about album sellers and singles sellers, Norah Jones clearly fitting into the former category. Cherry picking download singles with the availability of all tracks all the time fully changed the game. For many music consumers, download tracks haven’t replaced former physical singles but yes previous catalog album sales.

Thus, although she had very little appeal in physical singles format, Norah Jones sold her share of download singles. As catalog items, hits from her first couple of albums are her easy leaders while most recent songs failed to attract many buyers.

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