Crystal sees a 12% drop in sales, but manages to move up the BB200 chart 10 spots (Rock, up 5 or 10. Last week, David tweeted she was at 33 (and BB agrees), this week, he says that she was at 28 last week. Or maybe she is 28 this week IDK).

118 Crystal Bowersox “Farmer’s Daughter” 5,161 (-12%; lw 5,889) Total: 160,759 (128) 23 Rock (lw 28)
152 Fantasia “Back to Me” 4K (-31%) Total: 420K
179 Carrie Underwood “Play On” 4K (-36%) Total: 1.962M
Daughtry “Daughtry” 2K (-11%)

    I would have expected a little more kick from Crystal’s Opry debut. It was amazing. Maybe it will take some time to see the effects of that. A steady 5k-6k a week is still nice to see. It seems to me a lot of folk still don’t know about this album.

  • Indigobunting

    I would have expected a little more kick from Crystal’s Opry debut.

    How long has her album been out, 10 weeks? I think it is inevitable for Idols to decrease sales unless something drives them like playing with a big name or radio play; 12% decrease doesn’t seem too bad. Her sales will keep decreasing unless one of the above occurs, or until her Idol bump happens.
    But she has had excellent PR and things like getting her on the Opry and some of her other appearances will help to slow the decrease.

  • meyers77

    Crystal just keeps cranking out 5k+ every week. It’ll probably keep there as she keeps performing at these various venues. Won’t take off cause it’s not getting that much radio play.

    AI Historical Data Table 3: Chart Dynamics

    I have prepared a new table on chart dynamics of AI albums. This table shows how the BB chart position changes over the album life cycle. The first three columns in table below display the position of AI albums in the BB current chart in weeks 5, 10, and 20 (week 1 is reported here). The fourth and fifth columns show the rate of change in chart position over 10 and 52 weeks, respectively. The “10-week rate of change” indicates how many spots in the BB chart an album loses (-)/gains (+) each week, on average, during the first 10 weeks of album life. Correspondingly, the “52-week rate” shows an average weekly change in chart position for the entire year until an album drops off the chart (re-entry weeks during the first year are included in calculations). Data refer to the current (not comprehensive) BB chart.

    On average, an AI album loses about 11 positions per week until it falls off the chart; however, the variance is high from -0.1 (Kelly’s “Breakaway”) to -42.1 (Clay’s “On My Way Here”). Crystal’s numbers imply that, on average, her chart position drops by about 8 spots every week, which is slightly above the average. Fantasia’s third album loses about 5.4 spots per week, and Carrie’s “Play On” loses only 1.1 spot, on average.

    Artist-title(year): wk 5; wk 10; wk 20; 10-wk rate of change; 52-wk rate of change (sorted by 10-wk rate)

    Average: -11.1 -> -10.6

    Technical notes:

    1.If an album falls off the chart during the first 10 weeks and never re-enters, then the fourth and the fifth columns will be the same.

    2.If an album stays more or less stable during the first 10 weeks and then falls fast subsequently, a 52-week rate will be larger in absolute values than a 10-week rate (e.g., Kelly’s “My December” and Ruben’s “Soulful”).

    3.If an album drops fast during the first few weeks and then stabilizes its chart position later, a 52-week rate is going to be smaller than a 10-week rate in absolute values (e.g., Kellie Pickler’s both albums). A 52-week rate is also going to be relatively small for albums that made sudden appearance on the chart after the long period of absence (see Allison and Blake after their AI performances)

    4.Generally, two rates are highly correlated with each other (=0.93).

    5.A positive 10-week rate of change implies that albums slightly improved their position over this period, on average. No AI album had a positive rate of change over the 52-week period.

    6.The rate of change for each album is obtained as the slope coefficient from the OLS regression of chart position in a given week on a corresponding week number since album release over 10 or 52 data points. The first week off the chart is imputed as 201 to account for the last week drop (this imputation actually matters only for holiday albums that take a huge drop in one week).

  • car3278sweet

    Yah! for Crystal. She just keeps chugging along. Does anyone know how many albums Lee is selling per week? Not as a comparison to Crystal, but just of interest to me.

  • Kirsten

    Songs from last night:

    Thanks for that. Did anybody catch the numbers before the performance? The change would be interesting to see.

    While JTWYA was probably already doing well, I suspect that “Letters From Home” and “Maggy May” may have seen more significant up-ticks. I’m kind of surprised at how well “I’ll Be” is doing based on the general meh about that performance and song. Interesting that there was not much traction on Casey’s or Brett’s song.

    We can’t get Lee’s numbers because he’s off the BB200. Brian Mansfield can get the numbers for country singers who are off the BB200, but not the others, except for Daughtry, for some reason.
    I think Crystal’s Grand Ol’ Opry appearance did give her quite a sales boost-it is broadcast and a ton of people listen. The song she sang would be very appealing to old time country fans. Her numbers went up both on ITunes and Amazon. I’m sure she would have had a bigger sales drop without it, as her single has had very little radio play.

  • Kirsten

    Here is a check-point for the girls’ songs so we can compare 24 hours later:

    65. Only Girl (In The World) – Rihanna
    228. Fallin’ – Alicia Keys
    885. Turn On the Radio – Reba McEntire

    Everything else is currently below 1023.

  • Landmd

    The Grand Magnolias (Paul McDonald’s band) currently sitting at # 63 overall, and # 5 in rock on Itunes.

  • tripp_ncwy

    We can’t get Lee’s numbers because he’s off the BB200. Brian Mansfield can get the numbers for country singers who are off the BB200, but not the others.

    Based on past weeks and looking at the album at #200 on the BB200, Lee was selling less than 2k units.

  • Eriko

    Does anyone know how many albums Lee is selling per week?

    Last time Brian Mansfield reported numbers for Lee, sales were about 2k per week, after falling off the BB200. His numbers are now much worse on both itunes and Amazon. So my guess would be around 1K, and total sales about 120K. Lee´s appearance on AI can´t come soon enough IMO

  • windmills

    WOW. According to Billboard, Adele sold 217k digital out of the 352k albums she sold in the US last week!

    Notably, “21″ also bows atop the Digital Albums chart with 217,000 downloads — 62% of the set’s overall first week. Again, it’s the fattest week for a digital set since West’s “My Beautiful” moved 224,000 downloads in its premiere.

    Would Crystals Opry bump be on this or next weeks numbers?

  • Eriko

    Would Crystals Opry bump be on this or next weeks numbers?

    This week. And I don´t think that bump counts for more than 2-3 hundred in sales

  • 1952

    Eriko

    That seems like a small amount considering how far she moved up on Amazon and itunes for a couple days

  • Eriko

    That seems like a small amount considering how far she moved up on Amazon and itunes for a couple days

    Of course I could be dead wrong. But considering when her CD was in a similar place (top 20), week after week on Amazon, her sales weren´t that much higher. So this short spike IMO, can´t count for much, unless it happened everywhere her CD is sold..The good news to me is, she´s selling consistently regardless of very little radio presence. Hopefully if and when she appears on AI, she´ll perform Speak Now with a full band, guitar solo and all :)

    wow, go Adele!

  • Elliegrll

    WOW. According to Billboard, Adele sold 217k digital out of the 352k albums she sold in the US last week!

    This is incredible. I don’t remember hearing about the album being on sale, so this could be a result of all of the new fans she attracted with all of the promo that she did over the past few weeks. Maybe a lot of impulse buys.

  • blkeener

    WOW. According to Billboard, Adele sold 217k digital out of the 352k albums she sold in the US last week!

    A number of people I know couldn’t find it in stores. Someone said a Target store had only 25 copies.

  • Trina

    Adele’s album is AMAZING. Her huge sales make me happy. Its nice to see a real quality album from a fantastic singer do so well.

    If Lee pulls off a great AI performance maybe he can at least bounce back in the BB200. Less than 2k a week is not good. While an AI performance is good it won’t save the album, he needs some good airplay.

    Wow on Adele,s numbers. She is playing a concert here at THe Orange Peel in Asheville in June. The concert is sold out in the 942 person venue. Someone is going to witness a good show.

    I do have tickets to see Cage the Elephant and Toad and The Wet Sprocket at the Orange Peel in April.
