Carrie's Streaming Numbers

^ oh no I wasn’t trying to be a know it all or anything I just wanted to see how others calculate it. Lol. Appreciate the weekly streaming updates btw.
 
My bad! I hadn't updated the Youtube views in a little while and apparently the my sales column had DA at 22k (at 35k) so I was off by a little bit. I updated it to what I have now, but I don't inlcude the other two tracks on her page. So I have it at 197k now


I love that there are some number keeper as well :). I am not an expert but I think we should consider that there are other streaming provider as well. My estimate is this:

TC - 1.56M
CP - 867K
LW - 475K
SB - 587K
DA - 269K
 
Ok so I just realized that Apple Music definitely has less overall users after looking up how many people use each service, but Amazon Music has a much bigger chunk that I realized after checking out this article. So maybe Drinking Alone is more equal to Spotify on Apple in the number of streams it has when considering less people use it but it was on playlists quickly. I don’t think paid vs unpaid makes a difference here though.

The best way to put it is with most of Carrie’s singles she’ll be gold eligible with she’s at 300,000 SPS and platinum when she’s around 800,000 SPS. Unless it is one of her better streaming songs (Church Bells, The Champion, etc.) then it could be certified sooner due to it probably having more streams on Apple Music and other platforms.

I did some research the other day and think her next round of certifications (within the next 3-5 years) will be for these songs. Some that appear farther away from their next threshold (church bells, the champion, southbound) should make up their ground rather quick since they continue to stream very well. These are ballpark estimates. I used each song’s last known sales #’s as apart of the SPS so each song has at least the SPS I listed if not higher since the songs continue to sell even after their last sales update. I put question marks for the two I’m not 100% sure about.

Gold
Drinking Alone 225,000 SPS (Last sales update March 2020)

Platinum
-Little Toy Guns 810,000 SPS (last update 2015)
-Don’t Forget To Remember Me 634,000 SPS ??? (Last sales update 2013)
-Inside Your Heaven ???
-Cry pretty 665,000 SPS (Last sales update 2018)
-Southbound 430,000 SPS (Last sales update 2019)

2x platinum
-The champion 1,243,000 SPS (Last sales update 2019)
-Church Bells 1,410,000 SPS (Last sales update 2016)
-Two Black Cadillacs 1,680,000 SPS (Last sales update 2015)
-Something in the water 1,720,000 SPS (Last sales update 2016)

3x platinum
-Good girl 2,611,000 SPS (Last sales update 2015)

Thanks for compiling this! Wish sales were more updated like they used to be, but I enjoy looking at the Digital Sales Date website from time to time for an approximation of daily sales.

^ I do some. There's another user on here that typically does the majority of the updating though, so I don't want to take credit for all of it lol. I mainly just do small stuff that needs updating if it isn't already (sales updates, certifications, new chart peaks, etc.)

We might have to wait a while for that. The SPS numbers I have currently for the CP singles are:

Cry Pretty - 582k
Soutbound - 399k
Love Wins - 332k
Drinking Alone - 197k

Although these are just estimates, I would say a single needs to be at least at about 300k SPS to be certified Gold and DA's streaming numbers are already starting to fall. But here's to hoping!

Spotify represents only a small part from streaming users.

Here are my estimations for her SPS totals:
Cry Pretty - 1.020.000 *already certified Platinum*
Love Wins - 590.000 *already certified Gold*
Southbound - 730.000 *already certified Gold*
Drinking Alone - 370.000 *will be Gold this year*
 
^the Cry Pretty single certification hasn't been updated since November 7, 2018. As of now it is still at gold I believe, but that one has a shot at going platinum I am assuming.

How are you getting her streaming #'s from the other streaming platforms other than Spotify and Youtube? Is there a website that displays them or something?

No, the only info we have is the total users (premium and free) from streaming services. Based on that you can create a formula to estimate the numbers.
There's a very good website that make this, Chart Masters.
