Albums that are more successful than its singles (2013-2014)

During 2013 to 2014, here are the multi-million selling albums with underperforming singles worldwide:

Justin Timberlake – The 20/20 Experience
The album became one of the biggest selling albums of 2013 and served as a huge comeback of Justin Timberlake. Despite its huge sales, it only scored two major and official hit singles “Suit and Tie” and “Mirrors”. The reason may be, the volume two was released at the same year.

Daft Punk – Random Access Memories
The album is one of the biggest albums of 2013 either critically or commercially. It scored the big selling single “Get Lucky”, but no other singles were released after that.

One Direction – Midnight Memories
One Direction scored their thord worldwide number one album through “Midnight Memories”. It scored the sleeper hit “Story of My Life”. “Best Song Ever” peaked high chart positions but had short chart life. Two other singles were released but peaked lower in charts.

Michael Bublé – To Be Loved
Michael Buble again scored another hit album through this record. However, as usual, he never scored a genuine hit single again. Still, he was considered an albums artist

Soundtrack – Frozen
The soundtrack album used to be the biggest selling album worldwide of 2014. It had scored chart positions like the song “Do You Wanna Build a Snowman” and the hit “Let it Go”. Despite its successful songs, it did not match the soundtrack album’s success.

Beyoncé – Beyoncé
The album was known for surprise release and sold a lot of copies. It waa successful worldwide and was one of the biggest sellers of 2013 and 2014. Several singles was released but only “Drunk in Love” peaked at a high position.

Lorde did very well with her single “Royals” which helped the album’s success. The album achieved long term success but did not score another big hit except “Team”. Other singles released failed to reach the top 40.
