      • Good jobs again, Benny and Nameless!

        ABBA's total streams on Spotify have surpassed 5,309 billions (according to chartmaster.org - this number is from 17 days ago, they should have added another 70 - 80 million since then).

        160 songs are credited to ABBA, of which 141 have more than one million, 55 more than 10 million, 30 more than 30 million, 16 more than 100 million and 9 more than 200 million streams. Dancing Queen is very likely to become ABBA's first billionaire next year.

            A slight up-tick for ABBA. Not too optimistic/hopeful to say this will carry until Christmas.

            • At least there still seems to be a little demand. Like in Sweden, where Voyage did this in the last three weeks in the physical charts: 18 - 13 - 6.

                • That's a very good result for Voyage in Germany. It's likely to be ABBA's best result for 2022.

                  • Even if you consider that Voyage wasn't among the Top 3 at the mid-year-charts and spent only another two weeks in the Top 100 after the mid-year-charts were compiled.

                        I'd say that the mid-year charts covered the 6 months from January 1 to June 30 and did not include the last 3 weeks of 2021 (like the year-end charts for 2022 does). That's why Voyage is so high in the year-end chart.

                        I don't know why the German chart compiles can't wait until early January to reveal the 'real' year-end chart.

                              VV was number 11 in 1979 and The Visitors number 20 in 1982.

                              • In the 70s, 80s & early 90s, the year-end charts in Germany did not rank the singles & albums with the highest sales of the year, but the ones with the best chart performance. In addition, the cut-off date was probably something like early December.

                                The 'Super Trouper' album spent 2 weeks at number one in December 1980 (Dec 8-14 & 22-28), yet does not appear in the year-end top 75 of 1980 at all.

                                'Gold' was at number one for the entire 2 months of November & December 1992, during which it sold one million copies, yet it was only the number 27 album for 1992.

                                  • It's still hard to calculate Voyage's weekly sales, but I'd tend to say, that it's now in the upper hundreds again. The re-issue of The Cure's Wish is #52 in the sales and #50 in the physical charts and that makes a #174 in the main album charts with sales of 1,051. Both albums do not appear in the download or streaming charts.

                                    • Despite losing three places GOLD may have higher sales than the week before. The #18 has sales of just shy over 5k. I dare to say that GOLD is well over 4k this week.

                                      • 45 years ago The Album was released in Scandinavia - a January 1978 release elsewhere.. It sold over a million in the UK (where it was #1 for 7 weeks) and US. It only got to #2 in Germany and #4 in Australia.

                                        I just realised the UK Certification levels for ABBA songs are based on a formula for older songs and if the formula for current songs was used would be double.

                                        Example, Dancing Queen on 1.2m sales (downloads/streaming) should be 2.4 million.

                                          Are you referring to the SCR rule? If so, there is confusion. This halving of sales rule only applies for the purposes of weekly rankings, but not for total sales.
                                          Example with "All I want for christmas" by Mariah Carey which is number one in the titles ranking this week with weekly consumption reduced to 44,797 with the SCR rule, but whose figure taken into account for total sales is 88,686. [total: 4,003,196, including 933,516 downloads, 171,278 CDs, 155,261 cassettes, 263 7-inch singles, 2,742,878 streaming].

                                          • Wolfmother thanks for clearing that up.

                                            I saw the Mariah Carey stats in the Chart Anyalysis forum and assumed because weekly sales are halved then total sales would be - a fair assumption I think.


                                            I looked up her certifocation for All I Want For Christmas is You and it is platinum x6 ie 3.6 million.


                                            So ABBA's certifications aren't halved either.

                                            • For "Dancing Queen", like any other song, pre-1994 sales aren't included in the automatic certification system of the BPI.
                                              So its UK consumption number is now over 2,1 millions when combining physical and digital sales with streamings sales equivalents.

                                              Comment


                                              • Yes, I did know that. The double platinum certification for Dancing Queen is for downloads/streams since 1994 only.


                                                It's a quirk of the system that pre 1994 sales count for album certifications but not for single ones.. So Golds 20x platinum incluses sales from 1992/93 and not just when the OCC took over in 1994.

                                                Another quirk physical and download sales aren't added together for certifications but are for All Time Sales.

                                                • Has anyone seen certifications for ABBA "digital" songs apart from the UK, Sweden, Denmark and Italy? Those countries are the only ones I have seen that have certified for downloads/streaming songs


                                                  The US, Germany, Netherlands haven't any.

                                                  • No results for countries like Poland, Switzerland (who wonders?), Belgium and Austria, who all have searchable databases too and certify digital songs.
