The discography of Spooping Ray, an American singer-songwriter, consists of four studio albums, one live album, eleven singles, eleven music videos but only one available online, and appearance on one movie soundtrack called “Destiny’s Road”. She has sold 260,00 albums in the US and over 1.4 million worldwide, giving a total of just over 1.7 million albums sold.

Spooping was first discovered by her own father, who owns a music school in Los Angeles, CA. She received her first record deal in March 2009 when she was 15 years old.

Her debut album, “Around the World”, was released on April 28, 2010. The first single, “Postcard”, had a warm welcome, but not enough to leverage the album sales as expected. “Postcard” peaked at 57 on iTunes USA. “School” was the second single and peaked at 126. Spooping recorded the music video, but it was only available for a few weeks on Youtube. Because of the poor performance on viewers, the record company decided to remove it from online networks and Spooping faced a major problem on her music videos. The album debuted at number 89, and sold just over 95,000 copies in the U.S and just over 0.7 million worldwide.

On May 11, 2011, Spooping released her second album, “Running”. The lead single, “Leaving You”, had low impact. “Fight for You” had an even lower performance than the first single. Spooping released a third song on the radios, “You Make Me Lose Control”, even with the low impact is the most successful single from the album. “Running” has sold 62,000 copies in the U.S. and over 0.3 million worldwide.

On March 20, 2012, her third album, “Move On”, was released. This album was entirely produced after her time in rehab, but its reception wasn’t warm, like all the other ones. The lead single, “Everything to Me”, released in February, was the biggest failure of Spooping’s career. Because of the low sales, Spooping decided to release a second single a few days before the album’s official release. “I chose the music that made me dance the most listening to the album”. That’s how “Hypnotize Me” came to iTunes. Even with a bigger and better reception than “Everything to Me”, it wasn’t a success. After the album’s release, Spooping released three more singles: “Move On”, “Flesh and Blood” and “Just Beginning”. All singles got music videos, but they all were removed from Youtube by the record just like the other ones. “Move On” has sold 48,000 copies in the U.S. and over 0.1 million copies worldwide.

On April 16, 2013, Spooping released her fourth album, “DNA”. It was preceded by its lead single, “Sticky Dough”, the most successful song in her entire career. The song reached the Top 50 on U.S. radios, and the TOP 30 on Australian radios. After the album’s release, Spooping released another single, “Get Loud!” in June 2013, which is the second most successful song of her career. “DNA is my baby, it’s the album I’m most proud of, it’s a more mature and happy time of my life.” Once again, Spooping recorded videos for all the singles, but there was no agreement with the record company and they have never been released online. “DNA” has sold just over 55,000 copies in the U.S. and 0.3 million worldwide. It also marks the end of the contract with Free Sounds Records, and she decided not to renew it because she’ll be opening up her own label next year.
