YTD Sales : Please read these guidelines before you request sales estimates, it makes my task a lot easier.



1. Be specific - please name the artist and title for each entry you'd like an estimate for.

2. I log sales for all albums that have charted this year, but only update those that have sold enough to reach my 200 position tracking range

3. If an album isn't in the current Top 100, I won't be able to update its sales until Tues. Also, please don't ask about ex-T100 albums too often - once a month at most)

4. Remember to check the thread before requesting estimates - they may already have been answered. Also, no more than half-a-dozen requests at a time, thanks.

5. Please note my figures are combined sales & streams, and since I have no way of separating them, I cannot provide a split.

6. While I am no longer estimating singles sales, I can provide YTD singles positions from C+, and I am still maintaining my sales archive based on published figures (PM me if you want to see it)

7. Total sales are post-1994 only, so sales of albums relased before then will be understated.



Thank you.

Not a single album released this year will sell enough to reach platinum certification sad.gif That's very sad. And only one album selling over 300k this year...

Piracy dealt the first blow and then streaming ended once and for all with the music industry. While it's good for "singles sales", it's really bad for album sales.

It's also the matter of how the streams are counted.

For me, singles sales have been extremely inflated since 2013. Proof of this is that on the OCC's 2017 list of the 50 biggest singles in UK history, of these 50, 20 are from 2013 to 2017 and today, singles released from 2013 onwards are the majority on the list, which doesn't reflect reality at all. The streams of the songs released in the streaming era should be divided by something like 250-300 instead of 150 to reflect, in fact, the actual size of these songs and how big they were/are, while the streams of the songs released before the streaming era should be divided by 125-150.

Basically, that:

Songs released until 2004 (physical sales era): 100 streams : 1 sale

Songs released from 2005 to 2012 (digital sales era): 150 streams : 1 sale

Songs released from 2013 onwards (streaming era): 300 streams : 1 sale

I agree about inflated sales and it takes away from how big having a million selling was.

Yeh you have to take into account the era when thinking of sales.

I mean in 50 years the biggest sellers will all be high selling Xmas singles

If these songs are popular enough to return to the charts every year at this time of year, it's not my fault. wink.gif

For saying Gaga had the biggest opening sales of the year for most of it her total of 128k and 18th is surprising and pretty poor.

Right? That's why almost 750 songs sold 1 million units in the UK (adding pure copies + streaming), but of those, only 25% sold 1 million pure copies (aka real copies). Streaming is the way the music industry has discovered to mask its evident decline.
