  • Aaliyah :: Charts & Sales History

    I decided to make a thread about Aaliyah's worldwide sales, since there is so much talk about it. I would just like to make a thread to end all sales.

    U.S. sales:

    Age Aint Nuthin But A Number- 2x Platinum
    One In A Million- 2x Platinum
    Aaliyah- 2x Platinum
    I Care 4U- Platinum
    Romeo Must Die soundtrack- Platinum

    I really believe that there is another Aaliyah thread, but I guess that it's too old!

    Anyway, you could post WW sales for a start!

      I don't know them, so that's why I started this thread. Hopefully, someone like seattleboy or MJ Dangerous will help me out cause I doubt she sold 24 million records. Maybe 10-15 million, not 24.

        Age Ain't Nothing But a Number (1994)
        USA: 2.500.000 (2x Platinum) | soundscan +club sales
        Canada: 50.000-60.000 (Gold)
        Europe: 100.000 (#23 UK, #44 Dutch charts)
        Japan:???
        Australia: ???
        Worldwide: Around 3.000.000-3.500.000 shipped (sales/shipemts increased after her death)

        One in a Million (1996)
        USA: 2.500.000-3.000.000 (2xPlatinum) | soundscan + very strong club sales, sold well after her death.
        Canada: 50.000-60.000 (Gold)
        Europe: 500.000 (shipped), boost in sales after her death
        Japan: ???
        Australia: ???
        Worldwide: 4.000.000 (shipped)

        Aaliyah (2001)
        USA: about 3.000.000++ (2x Platinum) | Soundscan and club sales
        Canada: 100.000 (about 150.000-200.000 according to a source)
        Europe: 1.500.000-1.800.000 (about 2.000.000 shipped IMO)
        Japan: ???
        Australia: 70.000
        Worldwide: 5.500.000 (shipped)

        I Care 4 U (2002)
        USA: over 2.000.000 (even more shipped)
        Canada: 70.000
        Europe: 1.000.000 (certifications), 1.500.000 (shipped)
        Japan, Australia: ???
        Worldwide: 4.000.000 (shipped)


        Total: 17.000.000 (shipped)

        These estimations are based on Soundscan, club sales, CRIA, about 15 European countries (certification, peaks or sales)

        Lack of info from ARIA, Oricon, Mexico, Brazil and Argentina, so sales might be deflated.

        Anyway, her albums have sold around there I suppose!

              No problem!

              Let's wait for any MJD estimations, he is way more accurate than me.

                But I think her sales are not important in Mexico and Argentina, they don't know about her so they're not deflated

                  Aaliyah scanned 8m albums upto January 2006 according to Soundscan. She has for sure shipped over 10m albums in the USA alone

                  She also had a #1 album after her death:

The album spawned three top 30 hits, including "Rock The Boat" and "I Care 4 U." Aaliyah was just 22 (younger than any other artist on this list) when she died in a plane crash in the Bahamas.
                  UK Sales:

                  I Care 4 U - 180,000
                  More Than A Woman - 117,000
                  Try Again - 143,000

                  Aaliyah (album) - 160,000

                    I've heard she sold 32 Million worldwide but it seems inflated. I'm also very interested to know her total sales.

                      My estimations have a total of 10.5 million in the US, so guess that they are ok.

                      Also, have you got any info about her sales in Japan?

                          So she's sold at least 17 million albums worldwide and over 20 million records (singles and albums) worldwide.

                          Question: How come she doesn't have any Platinum certified albums by IFPI in Europe?

                              I'm not really sure where sales numbers on that list is coming from. The correct total number has been 32 million for as long as I can remember. Here's video proof as well.

                                She has not sold 32m albums. Do the digesting of her figures, and you'll see that

                                  I'm afraid JPGUY is right ...at least in my country she's virtually unknown like most of R&B artists... only few R&B / hip hop lovers like me knew about her :( so her sales here might be between nothing and insignificant.

                                      i was or still i am a fan, i think (if i remember correctly) AALIYAH sold over 150.000 in Germany and I CARE FOR YOU around 75.000.

                                      TRY AGAIN was something like 170.000 in Germany.

                                      Thats all i know.
                                      YOU cant blame nobody but YOU

                                        Since it's hard to get real sales from Germany.

                                          Worldwide: 4.000.000 (shipped)


                                          Total: 17.000.000 (shipped)

                                          These estimations are based on Soundscan, club sales, CRIA, about 15 European countries (certification, peaks or sales)

                                          Lack of info from ARIA, Oricon, Mexico, Brazil and Argentina, so sales might be deflated.

                                          Anyway, her albums have sold around there I suppose!

                                          Do u have actual links to these?
                                          They are his own estimations based on Soundscan, club sales and certifiations... What link do you want?

                                              Sorry, didn't mean to be rude...
                                              you can find USA certifications on RIAA website, Canadian certifications on CRIA website. BPI website (UK) has the database offline atm so you can't check them. Soundscan database doesn't exist cause you must pay to get exact USA sales, but some figures are leaked...
                                              Rest are AyuM personal estimations got adding certifications and making a shipmenst basing on known figures.

                                                  These estimations are based on Soundscan, club sales, CRIA, about 15 European countries (certification, peaks or sales)

                                                  Lack of info from ARIA, Oricon, Mexico, Brazil and Argentina, so sales might be deflated.

                                                  Anyway, her albums have sold around there I suppose!

                                                  Do u have actual links to these?
                                                  They are his own estimations based on Soundscan, club sales and certifiations... What link do you want?
                                                  No need for attitude.. I was just askin for the link to these sales. Cuz they look off.
                                                  Sorry, didn't mean to be rude...
                                                  you can find USA certifications on RIAA website, Canadian certifications on CRIA website. BPI website (UK) has the database offline atm so you can't check them. Soundscan database doesn't exist cause you must pay to get exact USA sales, but some figures are leaked...
                                                  Rest are AyuM personal estimations got adding certifications and making a shipmenst basing on known figures.
                                                  thanx!
