The musician on the album does not have her own Wiki page and no other pages link to this album. LongLiveMusic (talk) 06:28, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

...neither of which are deletion criteria. The question is whether peaking at 32 on a national album chart or 7 on the New Zealand artist chart is sufficiently notable. Caveat: I'll fix the #2 reference link next, so that it actually does go to the week in question. Dru of Id (talk) 06:53, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Keep but rename Delete or merge as Annah Mac (the artist); then edit this article into a section there. The artist has a charted album; per WP:MUSICBIO, "A musician or...singer...may be notable if it meets at least one of the following criteria:...2. Has had a single or album on any country's national music chart." By contrast, per WP:NALBUMS, "An album requires its own notability, and that notability is not inherited and requires independent evidence. That an album is an officially released recording by a notable musician or ensemble is not by itself reason for a standalone article." So the album cannot currently survive on its own but can be a section at the notable artist's article. --→gab 24dot grab← 20:20, 14 June 2012 (UTC)
    Uh. Actually, albums can exist without articles on the corresponding artist. Ironholds (talk) 20:47, 14 June 2012 (UTC)
    Of course, but an album must be notable independent of the artist to survive PRODding, and merely charting does not in itself constitute an album's notability. Notability for the artist actually is constituted by charting. --→gab 24dot grab← 13:47, 15 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Delete. "That an album is an officially released recording by a notable musician or ensemble is not by itself reason for a standalone article." The artist would seem to have no notability except for this album, and the album does not satisfy the criteria of being recorded by a notable artist. Seems like a weak case of circular-referencing where no independent notability exists. DerbyCountyinNZ (Talk Contribs) 23:27, 14 June 2012 (UTC)
I think you're misreading the guidelines. There's no circularity. The artist is presumed notable for having a hit album. That rule doesn't mention that the album has to be notable. Notability guidelines commonly use achievements to quantify if someone is likely to be famous, well-known, or important, and hence notable, but that doesn't necessarily mean that their every achievement deserves an article. --Colapeninsula (talk) 13:21, 15 June 2012 (UTC)

Relisted to generate a more thorough discussion so a clearer consensus may be reached.

  • Speediest. Possible. Keep. Obviously. It charted and there's coverage. [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] The saddest thing about this nomination is that the nominator did not provide a valid reason for deleting the article. Till I Go Home talk stalk 14:08, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
