Adam Lambert’s upcoming album now sits at #2 on the Amazon Bestsellers list–this, after the album was discovered available for pre-order by fans yesterday afternoon. Word of mouth spread the news quickly via fanboards and twitter, and as the day wore on, Adam’s yet-to-be named album rose quickly up the chart.
Adam’s rise at Amazon was truly a word of mouth phenomenon. There were no announcements from Amazon or Adam’s label RCA, in fact, as of this morning, the album could not be found through a search of “Adam Lambert” on Amazon!
It hit #2 yesterday evening, and seems to have settled there for now. Barbara Streisand currently holds the #1 spot.
Adam is beating out: Madonna, The Beatles, Susan Boyle and Michael Jackson. Not too shabby.
One thing is for sure–Adam’s Idol fanbase is strong and mighty. All he needs now is a leak of his latest single. With a push from the media, who clearly seems to adore him (I’m looking at you Rolling Stone!), Adam’s post-Idol debut, could do very well indeed.
