    So it seems Rub, which is steady going but, contrary to the misguided figures of others from time-to-time who claimed this to have been a far bigger seller over the years, we have to consider it was/is a budget collection selling to crinklies (well, I'm one so I can say it!) whose music medium of choice are physical CDs - particularly if they're cheap and full of hits like this collection!

    While I'm here, I came across a claim by MJDangerous of the sales of some Motown artists to the blog site Hitsville a few years back. Being a fan of most of the acts, but in particular La Ross, I thought I'd reproduce it here:-


    "Motown sales were truly gigantic in the 60s and 70s. Single sales were huge at that time and to be honest they were definitely dominating that sector. Album sales of Motown acts are very often not that impressive: First because the market wasn’t big at the time, second because their acts are more remembered for their singles than their albums in general, third because Motown releases the same hits packages again and again, cannibalizing sales of original albums. Only Stevie Wonder, and later Lionel Richie, sold loads of albums while signed by Motown. It is hard to guess the entire sales of the label (especialy since I haven’t studied several of their key acts), but let’s check a few of them:
    – Jackson 5 – 70 million (not including sales of the Jacksons, who weren’t on Motown anymore)
    – Michael Jackson – 20 million
    – Stevie Wonder – 170 million
    – Lionel Richie – 85 million
    – Diana Ross/Supremes – 190 million
    – Commodores – 60 million
    – The Temptations – 110 million
    – Marvin Gaye – 110 million
    – Four Tops – 40 million
    – Miracles/Smokey Robinson – 55 million
    A total of 910 million – most of them were singles. With all their acts, it is safe to say the Motown label sold well over 1 billion records, which is an incredible total."


    No doubt the breakdown between the solo career and the Supremes is available somewhere, but it would be equally unrealistic however the two were carved up imho. Sadly, like so much that is sent out into the ether via the wonders of the internet, the recipient at Hitsville thought it all perfectly sensible...

    Still, there are more important misinformation matters out there at the moment, such as the curious propaganda during the current EU referendum campaign in the UK. Both sides are to be blamed, but the Brexit mob take the cake with the '£350m Sent to Brussels Every Week' emblazoned across their campaign 'battle bus'...

    Figures eh?!

    Apparently Budget albums now only have to sell 60k for a Silver Disc rather than 120k.


    And here's MJDangerous' estimates of Diana/Supremes' US single sales, Topicel:

    Looks like similar to US Motown in Canada only began claiming certifications in late 70s.

    Diana Ross Reigns Supreme on Dance Club Songs With 'Ain't No Mountain High Enough 2017'
    https://www.billboard.com/articles/colu ... nough-2017
    1/18/2018 by Gordon Murray

    Remixes of the classic take Ross to the summit for the first time in 22 years. Plus, moves for Marshmello & Clean Bandit.

    Icon Diana Ross rolls to her fifth No. 1 on Billboard's Dance Club Songs chart (dated Jan. 20) with "Ain't No Mountain High Enough 2017," which rises 2-1. The classic, updated for Ross' Diamond Diana: The Legacy Collection, was remixed by StoneBridge, Eric Kupper and Country Club Martini Crew, among others.

    "Mountain" is Ross' first Dance Club Songs No. 1 in over 22 years, since "Take Me Higher" in December 1995. Her other leaders: "The Boss" (all cuts, 1979); "Upside Down"/"I'm Coming Out" (1980); and "Swept Away" (1984). While the original "Mountain" pre-dated the chart's 1976 inception, it served as Ross' first solo Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 (of six) in 1970. Fronting The Supremes, she earned 12 Hot 100 No. 1s with the act in 1964-69, the most for an American group.

    1/21/2018 by Keith Caulfield

    With Cabello’s arrival at No. 1, she joins an exclusive club of female performers who initially reached the Billboard 200 as part of a group, and then later hit No. 1 with a solo album. Cabello was formerly a member of the all-female vocal group Fifth Harmony, which claimed three top 10s while Cabello was in the group. Cabello departed Fifth Harmony in December of 2016.

    Here’s a look at the ladies who hit No. 1 after previously scoring chart success with a group.

    Gwen Stefani
    Stefani notched her first solo No. 1 album in 2016 with her third solo studio effort, This Is What the Truth Feels Like (April 9, 2016-dated chart). Her first solo album, Love. Angel. Music. Baby., was released in 2004, years after her band No Doubt had made a name for itself on the chart. No Doubt first dented the chart on Jan. 20, 1996, when its Tragic Kingdom album arrived at No. 175. The set would eventually climb to No. 1 that December, and the band would follow with five more charting efforts — most recently 2012’s No. 3-peaking Push and Shove.

    LeToya
    LeToya’s self-titled album opened atop the list dated Aug. 12, 2006 — a little over five years after she departed the pop/R&B vocal group Destiny’s Child. While LeToya was a member of Destiny’s Child, the group scored a pair of charting albums: Destiny’s Child (No. 67 in 1998) and The Writing’s on the Wall (No. 5 in 2000).

    Beyoncé
    Another member of Destiny’s Child, Beyoncé, stormed out of the gate in 2003 with her debut solo studio set, Dangerously in Love. The album — led by the smash single "Crazy In Love," featuring JAY-Z — debuted at No. 1, and Beyoncé has since followed it with five more chart-topping efforts. (By the time Dangerously in Love was released, Beyoncé’s time with Destiny’s Child had yielded five charting albums for the group, including its first No. 1, 2001’s Survivor.)



    Lauryn Hill
    Before Hill debuted at No. 1 with her first solo album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill (Sept. 12, 1998), she was a member of Fugees, who claimed two entries on the list, including the No. 1 The Score (1996).

    Patti LaBelle
    The R&B diva notched her first (and so far only) solo No. 1 with The Winner in You on the July 19, 1986-dated list. Before she released her self-titled debut album in 1977, her trio Labelle scored three charting sets: Nightbirds (No. 7 in 1974), Phoenix (No. 44 in 1975) and Chameleon (No. 94 in 1976). (Labelle originally started as the Bluebelles, then morphed into Patti LaBelle and the Bluebelles.)

    Stevie Nicks
    Nicks started her solo career with a bang — reaching No. 1 with her first album, Bella Donna, on the Sept. 5, 1981-dated Billboard 200. Before that, Fleetwood Mac (which Nicks joined in 1974) notched three albums with Nicks in the group: a self-titled album (No. 1 in 1976), Rumours (No. 1 in 1977), and Tusk (No. 3 in 1979).

    Linda Ronstadt
    Before Linda Ronstadt hit No. 1 as a soloist (with Heart Like a Wheel in 1975), she had dented the chart as a member of the Stone Poneys. The trio reached No. 100 in 1968 with the album Evergreen, Vol. 2.

    Diana Ross
    Ross topped the list as a solo act for the first time with 1973's Lady Sings the Blues (the soundtrack to the film of the same name, starring Ross). Before that, as a member of the Supremes (and later Diana Ross & the Supremes), the group claimed a trio of chart-toppers between 1966 and 1969.


    Janis Joplin
    The rock band Big Brother and the Holding Company, with Joplin as its lead singer, hit the chart twice: with its 1967 self-titled set (reaching No. 60) and its hugely successful follow-up, Cheap Thrills (No. 1 for eight weeks in 1968). Joplin departed the group after Cheap Thrills, and released her solo debut in 1969: I Got Dem Ol’ Kozmic Blues Again Mama!, which reached No. 5 that same year. After Joplin died in 1970, her first posthumous album, Pearl, was released in 1971 and spent nine weeks at No. 1.

    Lastly, an honorary mention goes to Selena Gomez, who notched three albums first with Selena Gomez & the Scene, before going totally solo with the No. 1 album Stars Dance in 2013.

    Diana Ross’s Diamond Diana: The Legacy Collection debuts at No. 30. This gives Ross a more than 53-year span of top 30 albums. She first cracked the top 30 in the fall of 1964 with the Supremes’ Where Did Our Love Go.

    1970 – DIANA ROSS – DIANA ROSS
    http://chartmasters.org/2018/03/yearly- ... 0-1982/10/

    Although several previous releases by the Supremes credited Diana Ross explicitely, her eponymous LP from 1970 was her true solo debut. The lead single Reach Out and Touch peaked at #20 in the US and #33 in the UK, quite disappointing considering the standards of her former group. The second single was a cover of Ain’t No Mountain High Enough. It may seem surprising nowadays, but the original Marvin Gaye / Tammi Terrell duet wasn’t so big, peaking at #19 in the US and failing charts in the UK. Ross version popularized the track, hitting #1 for 3 weeks in the US and #6 in the UK.

    This million selling single boosted the album Diana Ross which made the Top 20 in both the US and the UK. The single was later surpassed by bigger hits like Endless Love, Upside Down and I’m Coming Out, but it always stood on track lists of the diva’s compilations, generating several millions of sales in the process. Considering the lack of serious competition from this year, it settles her spot at the top of 1970. Nice start!

    As of 16 March 2018 You Can't Hurry Love single has been certified Silver in the UK.

    This is based on sales since 2004 and is the Supremes' first single certification in the digital era in the UK.

    In 1966 it sold somewhere approaching 200k so total sales are now c400k - this makes it their third biggest selling single here after Baby Love and Where Did Our Love Go having surely now overtaken Stoned Love.

    You would expect Baby Love to also receive a Silver certification reasonably soon since although it was "awarded" a Silver Disc in 1964 this was before the BPI started official certifications and it is eligible.

    Interesting that YCHL outperforms everything else on Downloads and Streams.

    Diana's I'm Coming Out has been Certified Silver in the UK as of 07 September 2018. (Sales post 1994)

    Before the collapse of Downloading totals I knew it had been keeping pace with Chain Reaction and Endless Love but I would be surprised if it had reached 6 figures? - I can only assume Streams of the track are enormous.

    If any Diana single was to reach certification I would have expected it to be Endless Love (with Lionel Richie) which actually sold 250k+ back in 1981 but no certification was claimed by the record company

    Great news, I guess I'm coming out had been streamed a lot due to people (especially younger generations) having more chances to connect / hear about the song due to samples and being used on various shows/series/films...if I look at her top tracks on Deezer (I don't use Apple or Spotify) I'm coming out is top, followed by Upside Down & then Endless Love...
