A few days ago we went through the 101 albums by Elvis Presley that have been certified by the RIAA in the US. While it was already an enormous task, that was only one part of the picture. In fact, less than a third of his official US releases achieved a Gold award or better.
A lot has been said about Elvis Presley‘s sales awards. Fact is, even when they are 100% official like the RIAA certifications, they are often largely misunderstood. Various parameters like the price, the number of discs, the running time, the year of release and the content of reissues are unknown or wrongly interpreted. It is about time to get a true in-depth receipt about this information!
All artists are the subject of many fake claims. Nevertheless, no one is surrounded by as many false information as Elvis Presley. It is quite an irony that the most you sell, the most your results are exaggerated. With the King, we meet people who do everything to maintain the myth, willingly lying to the general public.
As soon as sales of Elvis Presley are mentioned, we hear about the insane number of albums he issued. Considering that a single album can sell 10 million units or more, an artist who released thousands of records must have sold billions. This approach is a bit simplistic, too simplistic. Actually, the whole thing around the number of albums he released is a huge lie.
It’s time to activate the Elvis Presley mode. I feel sorry about those for who his music is not their cup of tea, but the next weeks will be all about him! It has been two years since we applied our Commensurate Sales to Popularity Concept for the first time and we went on to treat 99 artists since then. To celebrate the 100th article, the King was the obvious choice.
Let’s get loud! It has been 20 years since Jennifer Lopez recorded her debut hit single If You Had My Love. During that time frame, she went through various ups and downs. While no new album came out for 4 years, the Latin star remains busy releasing singles, movies and side projects.
The football World Cup is currently flooding media from everywhere. No artist is more linked to this competition than Shakira. During each of the last 4 World Cups, she got a huge hit. Whenever, Wherever in 2002, Hips Don’t Lie in 2006, Waka Waka in 2010 and Dare (La La La) in 2014, we are left wondering if her new song Clandestino will take over the same one as these previous summer anthems.
You’rree heere, there’s nooothing I feaarr
And I knoooow that my heart will.. go oonnn
We’llll staay foreeeever this way
With these lyrics in our mind and the song will go on and on
