Music Industry Data Resources


  • BuzzAngle Music.  While coverage is primarily for the USA and Canada (physical & digital sales; on demand audio and video streaming; terrestial airplay), there is also data on video sales for Brazil, France, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom. Data begins in 2015.  Searching is mediated only.  For access, please contact Bobray Bordelon.
  • Wikipedia is often a good source listing actual total sales (as opposed to just rankings) for a specific album.
