CSPC: Shania Twain Popularity Analysis


Physical Singles Sales

If you get to be an NBA all-star, we will forget you used to be a very good football player at college. Outstanding sales of Shania Twain’s album Come On Over overshadowed very much everything else that we missed how well her singles sold at the same time.

Not that far from 10 million physical units have been sold of singles issued from that album. Out of all the artist’s albums studied so far, none registered more than 12 million sales of its related singles and this considers the biggest eras from the likes of the Rolling Stones, Madonna or ABBA. This highlights how much the Come On Over era was huge in that field too. Maybe even more impressive is the way distinct singles broke the main audience for her in different countries. In the US, You’re Still The One sold a mind-blowing 2 million units. In the UK, the beast was That Don’t Impress Me Much at 800,000 copies. In France, the main album traction was Man! I Feel Like A Woman with close to half a million sales.

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