CSPC: Whitney Houston Popularity Analysis


Full Length related records Sales

For 15 years the career of Whitney Houston had no compilation and no live album, with only a few music videos released. This changed completely in 2000. All those non-studio full length records are studied below.

Remaining Long Format Part 1 – Compilations #1

How to understand this table? If you check for example Whitney: The Greatest Hits compilation line, those figures mean it sold 10,000,000 units worldwide. The second statistics column means all versions of all songs included on this package add for 754,000 equivalent album sales from streams of all types.

The second part on the right of the table shows how many streams equivalent sales are coming from each original album plus the share it represents on the overall package. Thus, streaming figures tell us The Bodyguard songs are responsible for 40% of the Whitney: The Greatest Hits tracklist attractiveness, which means it generated 3,972,000 of its 10,000,000 album sales and so on for the other records.

As expected, Whitney Houston, Whitney and The Bodyguard are the main forces selling those compilations. As Love, Whitney is love-themed, it ignores up-tempo songs, explaining why the distribution pattern is different.
