Based on streaming and certification it almost looks like the Chris Brown album is a success. :lol:

Overwhelmed over Taylor's certifications!

It's because the release is a double album. Only needed 250K SPS for Gold, and he released multiple singles prior.

Taylor's success is truly unprecedented for an artist debuting this century.

Yes Adele... given the long waits.

To consistently deliver after 6 albums, it's only on parallel with Eminem.
And in the post-2005 world, nonetheless.

So I'll try to break this down like a pro...

- Forever Your Girl was certified 7x-Platinum in late July of 1990
- There was a 9 month gap between her last cert, and the beginning of soundscan. Id give her 1 million copies there based on chart run
-Soundscan did not publish until May 1991
-The album scanned maybe 1,150,000
-Dont know how true this is but it looks like she scan around 1 million club sales https://classic.atrl.net/forums/showthr ... 8#15377738

7 million (RIAA) + 1,000,000 (Club Sales) + 1,000,000 (Estimated sales after last cert) + 1,150,000 (Soundscan)
= 10,150,000 (Diamond) +/-
Her 2nd album "Spellbound" should be at least 4x-Platinum. Her Remix album was certified platinum July 23rd of 1990. It still sold over 660k during the soundscan era, which began mid 1991. The album definitely shipped over 2 million. Here are my predictions for her US certs...

Forever Your Girl = 10x-Platinum
Shut Up and Dance: Mixes = 2x-Platinum
Spellbound - 4x-Platinum
Head Over Heels = Gold

Since Paula Abdul is pretty much retired for two decades now, I doubt that her former label will push for certifications!
