10 blockbuster soundtracks that reached Number 1 on the Official UK Albums Chart

Evita - Madonna (1996)
Helmed by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Alan Parker, Evita and its music was a big change both visually and vocally for its leading lady Madonna.

The collection reached Number 1 in the UK 13 weeks after its release and earned Madonna another three Top 10 singles: You Must Love Me, Another Suitcase in Another Hall and, of course, Don’t Cry For Me Argentina. At the time of writing the soundtrack has sold 505,000.

Best selling artists (pure album sales)

http://chartmasters.org/2018/04/data-collector-best-selling-artists-pure-album-sales/

April 2, 2018

 

Until a few years ago, chart lovers followed their fave artists and compared their success to others thanks to pure album sales. Nowadays, physical sales are going down but it doesn’t change the fact that some artists achieved gigantic figures through this format. So, who have been the most sucessful in this area? Have some recent acts been able to do well despite the fall of this market? You will find the answer in the list below!

Please notice that music videos, EPs and singles are not considered here. Records included are studio albums, compilations, live albums and box sets.

Please keep in mind that some artists haven’t been studied so far, e.g. legends like Elvis Presley (who should have similar results to Michael Jackson) or Frank Sinatra (probably in the top 15). All figures reflect the value as collected at the time of the artist’s respective articles.

 

ARTISTS RANKING – RAW SALES – ALL ALBUMS

1. The Beatles  333,145,000 (as of Mar 2017)
2. Michael Jackson  235,440,000 (as of Sep 2017)
3. Pink Floyd  203,010,000 (as of Jun 2017)
4. Madonna – 201,900,000 (as of Aug 2017)
5. The Rolling Stones  201,100,000 (as of Dec 2016)
6. Led Zeppelin  182,500,000 (as of Aug 2016)
7. Queen  179,295,000 (as of Oct 2017)

Extreme CSPC: Introducing the ASR, Artist Success Rating

# Artist Records Sold CSPC Units EDS Records EDS CSPC/EDS

#3 Madonna 342,040,000 241,134,000 39,414,000 8,68 6,12

*EDS: Equivalent Discography Sales

If we do the math for remaining artists, you can see that it requires only 3,04 EAS to get Bob Marley‘s catalog strength, mostly because of the super-strength of Legend. It means that every time a consumer bought an album of the artist, he got 32,9% of the appeal of his complete recordings. What about Metallica? Consumers bought 100% of their catalog’s value every 5,23 EAS. We ended to prove that while both sold the same, Marleyhas been the most successful since he managed the same cumulative sales in spite of a discography structure which requires his fans less purchases to be satisfied!

Lovers of the Beatles had to buy 6,31 EAS to own 100% of their catalog’s value while the fanbase of Madonna committed on 6,12 purchases. It was expected since her fans have been buying her records through the years as they came out. As for the Beatles, EMI had the brilliant idea to release singles and albums which weren’t contained in each other, creating two discographies living in parallel. When you buy the 30-songs compilation One, you still get 0 tune from their classic albums Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and the White Album. This forces their regular buyers to invest into multiple purchases.
