CSPC: Taylor Swift Popularity Analysis
"Only five weeks to go before the release of the massively anticipated album Reputation, the new effort from the American country star turned global pop phenomenon, Taylor Swift. During her last 1989 era, she was the flagship of Spotify’s bashing campaigns. By that time, none of her albums were available on the Swedish company’s platform. Her official speech was that art has a value and can’t be accessed for free. On our article about her last year I explicitly questioned this argument would held for long. Now that streaming is big enough to challenge sales-profits even in short terms schedules, the artist’s new tunes are available everywhere.
During the 1989 era, her extraordinary success has been looking even bigger since it was heavily focused on pure sales of both albums and singles rather than spread on more ways of consumption. Thanks to the CSPC approach we will be analyzing precisely how popular the singer has been since her debut and compare it to her challengers, including Rihanna, Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Britney Spears. She is especially similar to Rihanna, born in 1988, one year before Taylor. Both artists dropped their debut album at the age of 17 and both have been heavily successful since one full decade. Both are among the very top selling digital singles artists ever. The huge difference is the way Taylor is widely regarded as a strong album seller, the opposite of Rihanna, mostly thanks to her multi-platinum albums in the US. We will be checking how accurate this perception is within’ the new few pages."
