    Cher announces release date for new album
    By Ray Rahman on Dec 4, 2012 at 11:09AM / Entertainment Weekly

    Warner Brothers has confirmed that Chers first album in over a decade is due out early next year, with a tentative March release date. The pop vets most recent studio album, Living Proof, came out back in 2001 and debuted in the top 10, going on to sell more than a million copies worldwide.

    So, what will Chers 26th effort sound like? Eclectic! the woman herself tweeted, adding that itll be in line with her massively successful 1998 album Believe. Lots of dance, but none [are] SAME KIND OF DANCE ! Have Big ass Choruses, Some HEART RIPPERS!

    Well, well see about all that. One thing is all but certain, though well be seeing a lot of Cher on TV singing competitions next year. In the meantime, scroll down to listen to Womans World, the new Cher single that you probably didnt even know came out a couple of weeks ago.

    Billboard Issue September 25th, 1965
    Atlantic distributors ordered 285,000 Sonny & Cher "Look at Us" albums, increasing the sales of the record to 800,000 since it was released six weeks ago.

    Billboard Issue June 17th, 1972
    Even though the "Live" album album by Sonny & Cher has been out since last August and has sold beyond 360,000 copies, it's still selling at the rate of 1,000 copies a day, "so you really can't consider it catalog material. At least, not in the sence of a Roger Williams, who has about 15 albums wich are still selling consistently and well for us. But Sonny & Cher product seem to be in a superstar category.
    He pointed out that Sonny & Cher's album "Gypsys, Tramps and Thieves" album came out last september and has sold 475,000 copies and is still selling around 2,000 copies a day, while their "All I Ever Need Is You" album has already received a Gold Disk award from the Recording Industry Association of America for a million dollars in sales and it's selling between 4-5,000 copies a day.

    Look at this:
    One night Bogart appeared on a late-night television talk show with Cher and presented her with a gold record for her new single, "Take Me Home". You must sell a million copies of a single for it to be certified gold (twice the number that it takes to have a gold album), but "Take Me Home" had only sold 700,000. Rick Bleiweiss, then vice-president of marketing at PolyGram, Casablanca's distributor, got a frantic call from Borgart's subordinates the next day. Rick, he recalled them saying, we can't make Neil a liar! At their insistence, PolyGram pressed and shipped another 300,000 copies of "Take Me Home", though there were no orders of them. Most of them were returned for full credit, and PolyGram took a sizable loss.
    (Source: http://books.google.co.ve/books?id=aJTu ... es&f=false)

    Obviously the single passed the million mark in the US thank to the few copies sold in that shipment and the digital downloads, but it is interesting to read that we wouldn't count with a Gold certification for "Take Me Home" if Casablanca had not had that loss
    It is very common to certify records based on the shipments alone so I don't know why the didn't just ship one million right away and avoid the calling out...

    Anyway, Cher has so many un-certified singles (and several albums) in the US - All I Really Wanna Do, Bang Bang, Baby Don't Go, The Beat Goes On, The Way of Love, Cowboys Work is Never Done, All I Ever Need is You, We All Sleep Alone, I Found Someone, Just Like Jesse James, etc - all sold between 500k-1 million - so it's a shame they didn't get the RIAA award!

    I was very happy when I saw this a year ago, because there are stimations of 1m sales, but other ones with 400-500k copies. 700k units sold seem good to me, considering the little data we have about my favorite Cher album

    Other thing I founded was that IAMW was the 76th best selling album of 1996 in Italy, its peak position was No. 16 on the weekly charts >> http://www.hitparadeitalia.it/hp_yenda/lpe1996.htm

    And the "Gold" collection had sold 88,000 copies in the US as for 2010, it was written as an answer by Paul Grein to a Cher's fan >> https://web.archive.org/web/20121001171 ... ouple.html (It's on the comments 'box')
    new or not you've come up with some great finds and info!

    I'm also happy IAMW sold 700k (but as that info is from 1997 it probably sold more by now) though a masterpiece like that should have definitely sold much more!

    and wow at 88k for Gold - it's really great considering it was not an ''official'' compilation, and also it came out only two years after The Very Best of Cher (which should be 3x Platinum soon). Hmm, the only place where Gold actually charted is Sweden, it peaked at #34 and spent 6 weeks on the chart, so with those and with the copies it sold elsewhere worldwide, I guess it's safe to say it sold 100, 000!

    anyway, speaking of Billboard, here's the page from the Jan. 2000 issue, stating that "Believe" the album sold more than 10 million while the single sold over 6 million worldwide!
    Also it states that "The Greatest Hits'' sold more than 3 million (after only several months)!

    First-week sales/Biggest sales week
    DEBUT/BIGGEST FOR IICTBT:GT & IAMW
    Scanning The Globe / Billboard, March 27 1999
    With a third week atop the Billboard Hot 100 and an album entrenched in the top 10 for Cher, could the timing ever be better for a comprehensive hits collection by the singer? "If I Could Turn Back Time", wich includes material from each of the labels she has recorded for in her solo career, plus Sonny & Cher's "I Got You Babe", starts at No. 67 with 23,500 units, her largest first-week total in the SoundScan Era. "It's a Man's World" debuted with a higher rank, No. 64, in 1996, but with a sum of 18,000.
    (Source: http://books.google.co.ve/books?id=XQ0E ... 00&f=false)

    DEBUT/BIGGEST FOR LIVING PROOF & DEBUT FOR BELIEVE
    Alanis 'Sweeps' Away Chart Competition / Billboard
    Cher scores the highest debut of her 37-year career with her Warner Bros. set "Living Proof," selling a healthy 82,000 units to arrive at No. 9 on The Billboard 200. Her 1998 album "Believe" entered at No. 139 in 1998 with sales of just 12,000 units, but the similarly titled blockbuster single spurred the set to a No. 4 peak and eventual U.S. sales of 3.4 million units.
    (Source: http://www.billboard.com/articles/news/ ... ompetition)

    DEBUT/BIGGEST FOR TVBOC & BIGGEST FOR BELIEVE
    Do You Believe? / Billboard, April 19 2003
    While the White Stripes fan rock's flame, the seemingly ageless Cher throws a log on the fire for the 50-plus crowd. Her news comprehensive 'best-of' set rolls in at No. 7 with 122,000, her biggest weekly total since Nielsen SoundScan began counting sales in 1991. That's more than the 113,000 that her 1998 comeback album, Believe-wich peaked at No. 4-sold in its biggest week.
    (Source: http://books.google.co.ve/books?id=gg0E ... 00&f=false)

    PEAKS FOR TVBOC
    ** In each of the two weeks that "The Very Best" spent at No. 4, it sold less copies than its debut-week sales.

    50 Cent Reclaims Throne, Madonna Takes Spill / MTV.com, May 7 2003
    The Very Best of Cher climbs a notch to #4 (98,000), Norah Jones' Grammy-nabbing Come Away With Me inches up one slot to #5 (94,000), Evanescence's Fallen ascends one position to #6 (93,000) and Linkin Park's Meteora dips three to #7 (92,000).
    (Source: http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/147174 ... rone.jhtml)
    50 Cent Makes Way For The Isley Brothers / MTV.com, May 14 2003
    Former professional surfer turned bluesy acoustic songwriter Jack Johnson rides the #3 slot with On and On, which sold in excess of 132,000 records its first week out. Cher remains at #4 with The Very Best of Cher, which, after six weeks on the chart, has sold more than 120,000.
    (Source: http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/147186 ... hers.jhtml)

    PEAK FOR IICTBT:GT
    **The same happened here. This collection got a higher peak, in a lower sales week.

    Dueling Divas / Billboard May 8 1999
    Cher's "Believe", which this issue sifts its way up one rung despite a 12% decline, had the largest unit increase on last issue's chart, which boosted it 12-5. The 36,500-unit gain represented a 48% improvement over prior-week sales. Her hits collection, "If I Could Turn Back Time", simultaneosly scored the Billboard 200's largest percentage gain; the 11,000-unit boost (up 87%) spurred a 114-57 leap. This issue, it drops to No. 75 with a 25% decline.

    Nope, it had sold 890,000 up until the end of the '90s, so i'd say it's at 900,000.

    Really? Wow. I didn't know it. I just knew about the 155,243 copies it had sold as for 2004 hehe. For your question, we need Billboard to share the top 25 selling albums by Cher since 1991, in an article celebrating her 50 years in the industry.
    Yes, I hope they do it too - I'll certainly send them an email about it !
