  • ^Actually folklore more like 60-70k

      folklore (26,665 P + 9,159 D as of march 2021 = 35,824 pure sales)
      = (26,836 P + 8,133 D as of february 2022 = 34,969 pure sales) ~60k units as of february 2022
      An Evening with Silk Sonic (36,431 P + 9,783 D as of april 2022 = 46,214 pure sales) 66k units as of last week

      The big difference is that Chromatica had a huge hit in Japan.

      I think that that folklore and = are at 70-80k by now, but just a roughly estimation.
      It did extremely well in Japan, then.

      Reading this, with no western act except Gaga reaching 100k units -let alone 100k physicals- in the last three years, it’s insane Oricon has not downgraded their certification levels yet or established a new lower level for foreign acts certifications.
      Although what they should finally do is certify albums based on total activity, as not even local acts are selling physicals that well anymore.

          • How is it possible such a big difference this week between Oricon and Billboard physical albums charts positions?

              Billboard probably merges all versions together while Oricon keeps them separate.

                Last week on Oricon Physical Albums Chromatica Tour Edition sold 1,486 copies.
                On Billboard Physical Albums, Chromatica sold 1,420.

                So, basically the same, 66 copies more on Oricon.

                This week the difference between both charts is 756 copies... !!!

                Not only is that last week those copies, supposedly from the Chromatica regular edition, weren't there, as figures were pretty similar... But also, if the regular Chromatica was selling that much, it would be charting as well on Oricon physicals chart on its own. (In fact, much higher than the Tour Version which only sold 381)


                So, I don't think that's the reason. I think clearly one of the two is wrong.

                • Just checked for other albums and there are differences for all. Maybe some stores report only for oricon/billboard or maybe the tracking period is slightly different. I also believe the tour edition is very limited since it sold out in her store days ago..

                  • Yes, it happens all the time. Probably something about tracking period. Billboard charts are weird...

                        Great ! I'm sure that Joanne is also Gold eligible in Spain

                          With that chart-run, definitely. It left the chart with just like 2-3k copies left to Gold.
                          A shame we don't have a database so once out of chart we don't get to know albums and songs' certifications.

                          ASIB must be Platinum in here by now, and obviously TF/TFM would have an updated certification too.

                          • Chromatica certifications:

                            BRAZIL: PLATINUM
                            CANADA: GOLD
                            FRANCE: GOLD
                            ITALY: PLATINUM
                            NORWAY: GOLD
                            POLAND: GOLD
                            SPAIN: GOLD
                            SWITZERLAND: GOLD
                            UK : GOLD

                            Countries where it's not certified at all but it should have been certified long time ago:
                            Platinum eligible in US
                            Gold eligible in Australia

                            I think it must be Gold eligible in Belgium as well.

                            It's Gold in Canada, but it's Platinum eligible for quite some time.
                            Close to Platinum in France. Should get there in a few months/next year.

                            • I wonder why Gaga didn't come to Italy with the Chromatica Ball Tour. She could have easily sold out San Siro Meazza Stadium in Milan and the album could have climbed back on the Italian FIMI chart.
