Congratulations to American Idol winner, Phillip Phillips! Although his Olympics fueled tune, “Home” dropped down to #2 on the Billboard Digital Songs Chart (behind Flo Rida’s “Whistle”) it still had a fantastic week, selling 212,000 copies–down only 7% from the previous week’s total of 228,000.
But the really fantastic news is that, added to last week’s 844,000 total sales, “Home” has surpassed 1 million downloads! The single has gone Platinum. Hooray.
As an FYI, Flo Rida’s Whistle took the #1 position with 217,000 downloads and Carly Rae Jepsen’s hit, “Call Me Maybe” was 3rd with 156,000.
