This is the weekly sales thread. Please post numbers as you find them. Thanks!

    2 1 PHILLIP PHILLIPS Home 1929 1895 34 12.59

    We have already found out that Home have captures #1 in AC Billboard yesterday (Billboard’s tracking week for radio spins ends on Tuesday).
    And today it has moved up to #1 on Mediabase as well. We will have to wait for Sunday evening update for it to become official, but with Gotye seeing small loses and Home getting small gains and no one else even remotely close to dethrone it that official update should not be a problem.

    So while we are waiting on the new numbers to come in I decided to gather most noticeable Home’s peaks.

    Home:

    Billboard & Mediabase
    #1 Triple A (AAA)
    #1 Adult Pop (HAC)
    #1 Adult Contemporary (AC)
    #8 Pop (CHR)
    #35 Alternative (Mediabase), #39 Alternative (Billboard)

    Billboard

    Hot 100: #6
    Hot 100 Airplay: #6
    Hot Digital Songs/Tracks: #1/#1
    Rock Digital Songs: #1
    Rock Songs: #2
    Rock Airplay :#26
    MySpace Songs: #3
    On-Demand Songs: #11
    Ringtones: #24
    Streaming Songs: #17
    (new chart, was added in 2013 when Home had already peaked)

    Billboard Canadian Hot 100: #6
    Japan Hot 100: #70
    Iceland (Tonlist): #9
    Australia (ARIA): #99

    Mediabase
    Radio Songs: #6
    AI peak: PHILLIP PHILLIPS – Home: 115.053 (+ 0.521)

    Oh, and as a bonus:
    Smooth Jazz: #17

    As an avid chart watcher I’d like to say a big thank you to everybody involved, from authors, to Phillip, to Jimmy Iovine, to promo department end every other entity that help to make it happen.

    That was FUN!)))

    Hello, could anyone tell me what the numbers mean in this comment? 

    What does this mean: 2 1 PHILLIP PHILLIPS Home 1929 1895 34 12.59

    Also, what does this mean?: AI peak: PHILLIP PHILLIPS – Home: 115.053 (+ 0.521)

    Lastly, could anyone tell me exactly what spins are? 

    Thanks  a lot! Just trying to become educated with this stuff.. lol.

  • jpfan2

    From Billboard:
    “American Idol” winner Phillip Phillips’ “The World From the Side of the Moon” jumps back into the top 10, moving 14-8 (25,000; up 10%).

    “Home.” Phillip Phillips’ “Home” slips 7-8 (122,000; down less than 1%)”

  • Valentin432

    It’s been some time since I’ve followed this stuff so this may not be 100% accurate.

    What does this mean: 2 1 PHILLIP PHILLIPS Home 1929 1895 34 12.59

     
    In order:
    Precedent rank / current rank / artist name / single name / current week number of spins / past week number of spins / bullet (difference of spins between past and current week) / audience impression.

    Also, what does this mean?: AI peak: PHILLIP PHILLIPS – Home: 115.053 (+ 0.521)

    This is the audience impression that the song received at its peak.
    It means that Home was listened by (approximately) 115.053 million people (521 tousand more compared to the week before) that week.

  • girlygirltoo

    well that’s god for Melanie. Must have been just some sort of glitch

  • http://twitter.com/eilonwya10 Eilonwy

    Mmmmm Melanie Amaro is back on the Epic Records artists page

    Interesting. Well, if her disappearance was a coding glitch and she’s going to get a proper album release, I’m happy for her. This is the first time I can recall that such a disappearance has been a coding glitch, but it had to be the case someday.

    (Meanwhile Jermaine Paul’s official site has been “404 not found” for ages, and nobody seems to have missed it. So presence or absence of a web site is apparently less important than I would have thought.)

  • girlygirltoo

    sure!

    2 1  means that the song was #2 on the chart 7 days ago but is at #1 currently

    1929 are the # of monitored radio spins “Home” has received in that format over the past 7 days; 1895 are the # of monitored spins it received in that format over the previous 7 days; 34 is the increase in spins from the previous 7 days (1895) to the current 7-day span (1929)

    12.59 is the audience impression, listed in millions. That means that the song had the potential of being heard by 12.59 million people over the past 7 days; the AI is based on each radio station’s ratings

    AI peak is the again, the number of people that potentially heard “Home” across ALL GENRES (rather than just one specific genre); the +0.521 means that that peak # is up 0.521 million from the previous 7 days.

    Lastly, a spin is when a song gets played on a radio station; in terms of charting purposes, that radio station must be monitored (by Mediabase or Billboard) in order to be counted. There are many radio stations that are not monitored, and those spins will be counted in some of the total spins you see but not for the official Mediabase or BB chart.

    Hope this helps! :)

    Melanie’s official website still has nothing on it about her album coming out soon.  Marcus Canty does along with pre-orders being available for his debut ep.  His ep comes out around the same time.

  • Anny_nanny

    “Phillip Phillips’ The World From The Side Of The Moon rebounds from #14 to #8. This is its seventh week in the top 10. It’s the first debut album by an American Idol winner to log seven or more weeks in the top 10 since Carrie Underwood’s Some Nights spent 30 weeks in the top 10 from 2005 to 2007.
    Phillips’ smash single “Home” this week surpasses Underwood’s “Before
    He Cheats” in total digital sales. “Home” is now second only to Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger (Before He Kills You)” as the best-selling song by any American Idol contestant. “Stronger” has sold 4,068,000 copies. “Home” is up to 3,728,000. “Before He Cheats” has sold 3,687,000.”

    ‘Idol’ sales: Season premiere boosts Phillips’ numbers

    Last week’s American Idol premiere certainly didn’t hurt Phillip Phillips’ sales. The show featured last season’s winner and his hit single Home in its opening segment, and this week Phillips’ The World From the Side of the Moon is back in the top 10 of The Billboard 200.
    Plus, Home sold another 121,000 downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and new single Gone, Gone, Gone saw a 76% increase in sales.
    Season Four winner Carrie Underwood saw a sales boost last week, too, with all three of her catalog albums up more than 10% over the previous week’s numbers.
    Jason Castro’s Only a Mountain made its debut on the contemporary Christian sales chart, but its 2,000 units weren’t enough to make The Billboard 200.
    Sales information for several Idol-related albums and tracks follows.

    It’s a start. Very cool info in Yahoo article about P2′s run in the top 10 being second to only Carrie.

  • LongKissGoodnight

    Macklemore & Ryan Lewis continue their out-of-the-box success story, as “Thrift Shop,” featuring Wanz, tops the Billboard Hot 100 with a 2-1 rise in its 16th week.

    Justin Timberlake, meanwhile, vaults 84-4 following the first full week of airplay and sales for his comeback track “Suit & Tie.” The lead single from his forthcoming album “The 20/20 Experience” storms onto Digital Songs at No. 2 with 315,000 first-week downloads sold.

    After the pair’s independently-released album “The Heist” blasted onto the Billboard 200 at No. 2 the week of Oct. 27, “Thrift” thrives with the Hot 100′s top Digital Gainer award for a second consecutive week. The atypical rap ode to bargain-hunting tops the Digital Songs chart for a second frame with 341,000 downloads sold (up 22%), according to Nielsen SoundScan.

    Justin Bieber’s No. 5-peaking “Beauty and a Beat,” featuring Nicki Minaj, backtracks 8-9; and Phillip Phillips’ “Home,” which takes over atop Adult Contemporary, retreats 9-10.

    That Yahoo article also got the title of Carrie’s debut album wrong :p It’s Some Hearts not Some Nights. 

    Reporting from Billboard Country Update and Country Aircheck:

    There were 2 Billboard recurrents this week: Kip Moore and Justin Moore out of the t10. Next week, there could be a bunch more, but there is 1 guaranteed recurrent: Kenny Chesney’s El Cerrito Place as we get rid of the last song that peaked around the time of the holiday freeze. There was 1 recurrent at Aircheck/Mediabase: Kenny Chesney’s song, and there will be no Mediabase recurrents this coming week.

    Carrie’s Two Black Cadillacs (whose video finally premieres tonight on Entertainment Tonight and VEVO) had a good week gaining 1.816 million AIs and moving up 2 spots to #11. 2BC extended its lead on Hunter Hayes’s Somebody’s Heartbreak to 611k by outgaining it by 465k. 2BC outgained Little Big Town’s Tornado at #10 by 290k but still trails by 1.268 million AIs. Whether 2BC has a big week this week will depend mostly on whether radio drops Zac Brown Band’s Goodbye In Her Eyes out of t10 rotation. If it does then a spot opens up for 2BC. Looking at the numbers there’s a decent chance 2BC will end the week with more spins than ZBB even if it doesn’t end up with more AIs. That would be enough to send ZBB recurrent and enable 2BC to move up a spot to #10. If not then we’re probably looking at a slowish week for 2BC. Nothing to worry about but Blake Shelton’s lame new single Sure Be Cool If You Did is moving up pretty fast on hype and trials 2BC by 6.634 million after outgaining it by just a touch under 3 million AIs this week. I lean to thinking Blake’s single will slow down before it hits t10 and as its mediocrity settles in but, you never know.

    At Aircheck/Mediabase 2BC gained 1021 points, slightly extending its lead on Somebody’s Heartbreak to 609 points and slightly closing the gap on Little Big Town’s Tornado to 606 points after outgaining it by 227 points. Once again, LBT is passable but I don’t see country radio bumping LBT from the t10, so I don’t see 2BC passing Tornado until 2BC has already made t10. 

    CaseyJ’s Crying On A Suitcase had an OK week gaining 541k and reaching a new peak of #15 Billboard in its 32nd week on the chart. Lee Brice’s I Drive Your Truck is going to pass this coming week. If Zac Brown Band’s Goodbye In Her Eyes drops enough spins and/or AIs to fall out of the t10 then it will go recurrent and that will offset Lee passing. There isn’t another immediate threat to pass. Whether COAS is going to be able to move up any more is going to depend on whether any of the songs ahead of him give up in the next few weeks. The primary candidates for that continue to be Brad Paisley’s Southern Comfort Zone at #4 and Taylor Swift’s Begin Again at #8. But, neither seems likely to start dropping this week. I’d look for COAS to hold at #15 this week.

    At Aircheck/Mediabase COAS gained 504 points and held at #14. Blake Shelton will definitely pass this week and it’ll be a tight race with Lee Brice for the #15 spot (Lee will definitely pass next week). With no recurrents in front of COAS this coming week or next week, it’s a good thing there aren’t any other immediate threats to pass COAS. 

    Kelly’s Don’t Rush had a solid week gaining 631k and moving up 3 spots to #33 by passing Hayden Panettiere’s Telescope. Don’t Rush is just 60k behind Jana Kramer’s Whiskey, which lost 292k this past week and 304k behind Gloriana which lost 351k this past week. Between that and the fact there’s a chance of Eli Young Band’s Say Goodnight and/or Thomas Rhett’s Beer With Jesus will go recurrent and there’s actually a very good chance of DR making Billboard t30 this week! That won’t help with countdown spins and it’d be more a sign of the weakness in that area of the chart right now but hey, t30 is t30. There’s no question DR picked up some steam last week and its momentum continues this week if Mediabase is any indication. Rascal Flatts is 391k behind (and lost 19k to Kelly this past week). They’re making a little bit of a move so far this week but I’m going to guess Kelly’ll stay ahead of them. There aren’t any immediate threats to pass from behind but Lady Antebellum, Jake Owen, and maybe Eric Church may become issues in the next few weeks. But, they could be offset by more recurrents with the weakness in the twenties on the chart right now.

    At Aircheck/Mediabase DR gained 375 points and moved up 3 spots to #32 by passing Jerrod Niemann, Hayden Panettiere, and Jana Kramer but getting passed by Rascal Flatts. Airplay on Dial Global made a difference for DR this week but it seems to be continuing its momentum into the new week, plus it picked up another 6 adds from regular stations. Florida-Georgia Line’s Get Your Shine On has passed since Sunday (it was 135 points behind then) but there are no other immediate threats to pass. Meanwhile DR was only 59 points behind Rascal Flatts as of last Sunday so they are passable. Jana Kramer was only 80 points behind Kelly as of last Sunday so a repass is possible there too but Kelly has had the better updates so far this week. I expect Kelly to end the week at #33 Mediabase or maybe #32 if it is able to catch Rascal Flatts.

    Idol-related ads: None

    Recommended reading: The big country radio story this week is Cumulus launching a national country brand called Nash through a new country station in New York City, Nash 94.7. According to Aircheck, Cumulus has filed a bunch of trademark applications:

    In addition to registering Nash-related domains for every FM frequency, trademark applications have recently been filed 
    for the words Nash, Nash Country, Nash FM, Nash TV, Nash Awards, Nash Magazine, Nash Interactive and more. Goods and services are cited as “Radio and television broadcasting services; conducting award ceremonies; printed publications, namely, entertainment magazines; providing online publications in the nature of entertainment magazines; providing a website featuring online radio broadcasting, online television 
    broadcasting, and entertainment news, events and information.”

    Billboard reports the station doesn’t have any on air live talent or a PD/MD yet but Cumulus is definitely looking. Cumulus is notorious for not adding songs until they’re already t20, a sentiment expressed in a much nicer way by a UMG Nashville promo rep to Billboard:

    “They’re pretty conservative as chains go, so I wouldn’t expect them to be super-aggressive, but if something seemed to make sense for them, they may pop on something earlier,” Universal Music Group Nashville executive VP of promotion Royce Risser says. “I think they’re 
    going to research the heck out of that market.”

    Cumulus is the same group that recently centralized label promo visits to Atlanta during a designated window of time each month. I don’t think the labels were that happy about that but, developing a national brand that may extend beyond radio and whose flagship station is country music’s only station in New York City is likely to get labels back on board.

    I’m really happy to see that Kelly’s albums and her songs are still selling well. I was surprised to see Catch my breath in the 700k range already. I think eventually, the Greatest Hit album will be certified gold. It’s selling at a steady pace. I have a question. Why are the the singles that Kelly released after Never Again not certified by RIAA??  I mean the song Stronger is in the 4 million range and it’s not certified 4x Platinum by RIAA? The same goes for the All I Ever Wanted album which has sold nearly a million copies but yet remain uncertified. Can someone explain to me why they haven’t been certified? Thanks!

    Troublemaker is climbing!

  • Ping Pong

    Her album release date on Walmart has been changed to 31st of December 2013. What is happening?! Will she ever have a final release date and an album cover art?

    Brian accidentally skipped Blown Away’s track sales. Here they are from Roughstock:

    Carrie Underwood, Blown Away (song) 30,000 (1,761,000)

    Her album release date on Walmart has been changed to 31st of December 2013. What is happening?! 

    Well, it’s not a Walmart computer glitch in which all pre-order albums were set to 12/31/13. I did a spot check to make sure. #learnsfromexperience

    Walmart has also turned off the ability to actually pre-order the album.

    This looks like Walmart has been told that the album won’t come out in March, but hasn’t been given a new date. So WMT just changed the listing to a far-off date as a placeholder.

    Amazing how a cd can be “Out Of Stock Online” before it is ever released.

  • rihannsu

    Because they sell pre-orders based on what they are told will be shipped to them.  Also if the album got pushed back and they aren’t sure of release they might put that up temporarily so as not to sell any more until they get confirmation.

     “I have a question. Why are the the singles that Kelly released after Never Again not certified by RIAA??  I mean the song Stronger is in the 4 million range and it’s not certified 4x Platinum by RIAA? The same goes for the All I Ever Wanted album which has sold nearly a million copies but yet remain uncertified. Can someone explain to me why they haven’t been certified?”

    I asked this question earlier. Summary of the replies received: 1.??? do not always want to get certified; 2. Kelly does not want to spend money on certification; 3. my personal impression: RCA are idiots who think that they have a lot of great singers like Kelly.
    A small clarification: 4x Platinum by the RIAA ????????????. There is a Multi-platinum, it gives for 2M. And a Diamond – 10M. May be RCA is waiting for a Diamond?

    In the era of Soudnscan there are 2 main reasons to certify a record.

    1. For promotional purposes.

    2. Feel good for the artist.

    That is why we often see old records that are no longer actively promoted stay uncertified for a long time (sometimes forever) even after they are eligible.

    Artist does not care enough to press the issue, label does not care because there is no profit in doing so.

    Generally speaking I can’t think of an example when not having a certification for an old record have hurt the artist in the slightest. There are always soundscan numbers available for reporters to use, if they need a complimentary talking point.

    A small clarification: 4x Platinum by the RIAA does not exist. There is a Multi-platinum, it gives for 2M. And a Diamond – 10M. May be RCA is waiting for a Diamond?

    I think you might be confused. The world that is usually used to describe records that have sold more then 3 million is multiplatinum, yes.
    But 3x, 4x, 5x, ect. Platinum certifications RIAA certifications do exist, absolutely. It’s just is your single for example have sold 4 millions it can be certified 4X Platinum, but when you are called to sing it at the awards show the host is going to call it multi- instead of quadruple-platinum.
    And if you sell 11 million downloads for example you are eligible for 11x Platinum certification.

    I think you can query Gold for every 500k, but it does not affect their status.
    And “Stronger” is not an old song, this explanation does not fit.

    I get the points. I just don’t like the inconsistencies between My December and Stronger. All I Ever Wanted should have been certified Gold, My Life Would Suck Without You should’ve been certified 2x Platinum and Stronger as 4x Platinum. Other countries give certification to those songs and the album so why can’t RIAA do the same?
