                    • I found some numbers:

                      L.A. Times (Jan. 1999):
                      ...
                      2. Celine Dion, $152.3 million. Her numbers are all the more impressive because they don't count her contribution to the sales of the year's best-selling album, the "Titanic" soundtrack (see No. 3 below) but, even without it, Dion was the only performer with two albums in the year's Top 20 sellers. "Let's Talk About Love" was the No. 2 album of the year with 5.8 million sold, and her Christmas collection, "These Are Special Times," came in at No. 17 with 2.6 million copies. Throw in the ongoing sales of her catalog album "Falling Into You" and she sold more than 9 million albums last year. She also grossed $38.1 million on a 43-date tour that tapped into the "Titanic" fervor. 1997 ranking: No. 6.

                      That means that Falling Into You sold 600.000 copies in this decade in the USA.

                      In this week's chart and sales analysis, we welcome our favorite French-Canadian chanteuse, Celine Dion, back into the fold as she manages to break one of her own records. We'll also climb into the ring and size up the rise (and sometimes the fall) of the World Wrestling Federation music series.

                      Dion's New Day Dawning

                      Another Day, another #1 album for Celine Dion.

                      After putting her career on hold for the last two years to attend to family matters (see "It's A Boy For Celine Dion"), Dion has made a resplendent return to the Billboard 200 albums chart with A New Day Has Come. Issued a few days before Dion turned 34 (on March 30), fans celebrated both the singer's birthday and the end of her self-imposed "hiatus" with her first all-new studio LP since 1997's Let's Talk About Love.

                      The time off between the two records — during which Dion cut a French-language album (1998's S'Il Suffisait D'Aimer), a Christmas album (1998's These Are Special Times), and released a pair of compilation discs (1999's All the Way: A Decade of Song and 2000's The Collector's Series, Vol. 1) — certainly didn't hamper Dion's comeback. If anything, Dion's musical absence appears to have made her fans' hearts (and ears) grow even fonder.

                      Dion's A New Day Has Come sold more than 527,000 copies last week to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200 (see "Celine Dion Tops Albums Chart; WWF, Avant Make Strong Debuts"). And while sitting atop the albums chart is nothing new for Dion — who previously earned #1s with All the Way, Let's Talk About Love and 1996's Falling Into You — the mammoth debut week numbers certainly were.

                      By selling more than a half-million copies out of the gates, A New Day has become Dion's first record to enter the chart at #1, and it also beat out her previous best debut week — posted by 1997's Let's Talk About Love — by almost 200,000 copies. The singer's last #1 album, All the Way, landed at #3 on the Billboard 200 in November 1999 after selling 302,000 copies. The best-of record climbed to #1 the following week and eventually logged three weeks atop the albums chart on its way to selling some 6.08 million copies.

                      Let's Talk About Love, Dion's second chart-topping album, debuted at #2 in November 1997 (with 333,000 in sales). Even though the record was #1 for only one week in early January, Let's Talk About Love spent much of that winter and spring near the top of the charts, registering 17 weeks at #2. The album that kept Dion at bay for more than four months? Why, none other than the "Titanic" soundtrack, which also featured Dion's "My Heart Will Go On." The two records remain very close, SoundScan-wise, as the "Titanic" soundtrack has sold 9.97 million copies to date, while Dion's Let's Talk About Love has tallied 9.15 million in sales.

                      Dion got her first taste of a #1 album with Falling Into You, which debuted at #2 (with 192,000 copies sold) in March 1996. It would take the LP six months to climb to the top of the Billboard 200, where Falling Into You would spend three weeks in September and October. Despite the worldwide acclaim the love theme from the "Titanic" would bring her, it was this record that undoubtedly made her a star in the U.S. During Falling Into You's two-year chart run, the album never slipped lower than #93 on the Billboard chart. With more than 10.45 million copies sold to date, the record remains the best-selling of Dion's career.

                      Another Dion album, the Yuletide-flavored These Are Special Times, also got very close to #1 upon its release in November 1998. After making its chart debut at #4 (with 125,000 copies sold), the album climbed to #2 for two weeks in December before falling completely off the Billboard 200 by Valentine's Day. Despite the precipitous chart rise and fall, the album has sold 4.07 million copies to date, trailing only Kenny G's Miracles (6.98 million copies sold) and Mariah Carey's Merry Christmas (4.15 million) in terms of seasonal album sales.

                      Of the two other English-language albums Dion has released during the SoundScan era (which began May 1991), neither debuted very strongly, as 1993's The Colour of My Love entered the Billboard 200 at #88 while 1992's Celine Dion landed at #11. Both albums would make respectable chart climbs, with Colour peaking at #4 in March 1994 and Dion's eponymous LP topping out at #34 in June 1992. Both became Dion's first multi-platinum albums, with The Colour of My Love selling 4.23 million copies and Celine Dion totaling 2.24 million. (Dion's first English-language LP, Unison, which was released in September 1990, has sold 1.18 million during the SoundScan era.)

                      But that doesn't mean that every project has turned out roses for Dion. Her three French-language releases in the U.S., S'Il Suffisait D'Aimer, 1995's The French Album and 1994's Dion Chante Plamondon, all failed to crack the Billboard 200. The French Album was the robust seller of the bunch, tallying 221,000 copies — more than that of Dion Chante Plamondon (106,000) and S'Il Suffisait D'Aimer (95,000) combined.

                      Those missteps have been more compensated for by Dion's successes, though. The singer is responsible for five of the 200 top-selling albums of the SoundScan era, with Falling Into You currently at #9, followed by Let's Talk About Love at #15, All the Way at #57, The Colour of My Love at #139 and These Are Special Times at #160. For female artists, only Mariah Carey can match that feat — although Carey's best-selling LP, 1995's Daydream (7.50 million copies sold), is only #33 on the SoundScan era list.

                      Perhaps the best gauge of Dion's career impact (as well as the importance of her return) can be found in her total career numbers. According to SoundScan's release-to-date figures, Celine Dion is the fifth best-selling artist of the last 10 years with more than 39.17 million copies sold of all her albums. But with A New Day Has Come just out and in stores, look for Dion to leapfrog past the current #3 (Mariah Carey with 40.49 million) and #4 (Metallica with 40.21 million) in the next few months.

                      With enough of a push — and perhaps a masterful movie tie-in — A New Day Has Come may even help boost Dion past the venerable Beatles, who have SoundScanned 42.6 million in sales (since 1991) to stand at #2. Just don't expect her to bump country crooner Garth Brooks and his stable of LPs from the top of the SoundScan release-to-date figures, as Brooks is credited with some 64.35 million albums sold.

                      It should also be quite some time before any artist or group challenges Dion, Brooks, the Beatles, Carey or Metallica for the top five SoundScan spots, as there is a huge career gap of some 10 million albums between the current #5, Dion, and the current #6, the Backstreet Boys, who have 29.07 million in total album sales. For all those reasons and more, it's good to have ya back, Celine.


                      That means that since the end of March 2002 (in 5 years and 9 months):

                      All the Way sold 1,47 million copies
                      Let's Talk About Love sold 0,29 million copies
                      Falling Into You sold 0,32 million copies
                      These Are Special Times sold 0,93 million copies
                      The Colour Of My Love sold 0,27 million copies
                      Celine Dion sold 0,1 million copies
                      Unison sold 40.000 copies
                      D'eux sold 17.000 copies
                      Dion Chante Plamondon sold 4.000 copies
                      S'Il Suffisait D'Aimer sold 15.000 copies
                      Total: 3,456 million copies

                      And her total during this time is:
                      49,7-39,17 = 10,5 million albums sold

                      • Celine Dion sold 1.297m copies in 2007 in the USA.
                        Taking Chances sold 800.000 copies and her old albums 500.000.

                        She will be the first woman to surpass the 50 million mark and she will also surpass Mariah Carey. The 2 thinks will happen in February 2008.

                                    here2
                                    It's the second release from the collector's edition. First one was These Are Special Times from October 2007.
                                    Nobody should buy this ridiculous re-issue. Why re-issue this album after 6 years? "Falling Into You" and "Let’s Talk About Love" are her best selling albums and one of the best selling albums in history and deserved a 10th anniversary re-issue which wasn’t released. The contents are nothing but making money and laughing at fans: it’s just the same as the DVD single released in 2002 and other contents not included on the pathetic special edition from November 2002. They should add "I’m Alive" (second version) and "Goodbye’s (The Saddest Word)" on the video section. There are no bonus songs/rarities, something that is usually included on re-issues. What about the CBS special? It would have been a perfect bonus because most of the songs she sang are included on the special. They should have done something to make the current album ("Taking Chances") sell more than it did during the Holidays. It seems all their hopes are on the special, but it won’t have a good impact if they don’t release a new single soon.

                                    By the way, this edition won’t sell thousands of copies. Just look at "These Are Special Times" weekly sales this season. It was the same as in 2002-2004 when Celine was on the media. It barely sold a few hundred copies a week before the season began in November.

                                    "D’elles" has obviously sold less than 195,000 units.

                                        What's inside the DVD? I hope for "one heart". And "all the way" (with CBS Special too).

                                              • Bruno, your numbers are right (except for the DVD single, Platinum = 4,000 units) but there’s a problem with the database. Platinum is probably Gold. That way, figures seem reasonable. I’ve never heard of "n x Gold" certifications in Argentina. It’s Gold and then "n x Platinum".

                                                I realise there’s a mistake when I check certifications for current albums. For example, "High School Musical" is 10 x Platinum (400,000 units). It should be Diamond (250,000 units) but it isn't! It could be 10 x Gold (200,000 units)

                                                  I think it's 40.000 because it's a AUDIO. They wrote DVD when it is a DVD.

                                                  • The CD+DVD edition wasn't released in Argentina. Check Sony BMG Argentina's website.

                                                    According to this link, "Ne partez pas sans moi" (Eurovision 1988 winning song) sold 200,000 units in two days. I don't know if it is a reliable source or not.

                                                    At 18, weary of her good-girl image, she disappeared for a year and a half, and reappeared sporting short hair and tight sequinned dresses. Dion began to sing music with very upbeat rhythms for young audiences, winning in 1987 the Eurovision prize for 'Ne partez pas sans moi,' and selling 200 000 copies of that single in Europe in two days. Incognito, an LP recorded that year, sold over 200,000 copies in Quebec.
