  6. Very interesting article from HDD about Katy Perry v. Fantasia and the subject of whether single sales hurt album sales.

    http://www.hitsdailydouble.com/news/newsPage.cgi?news08199

    According to the article, for the first few days Fantasia’s album was outselling Katy Perry’s at Walmart. That is pretty mindblowing even if Katy Perry’s digital sales will give her the #1 album of the week.

  7. Billboard Country Songs Chart:

    Making Me Fall In Love Again #31
    I Will Not Say Goodbye #35

    Carrie’s “Mama’s Song” is also on the chart. It debuted at #55 from unsolicited airplay alone.

    From Billboard’s chart highlights:

    Country Songs
    *** No. 1 *** “All About Tonight” Blake Shelton
    Greatest Gainer No. 24 “Anything Like Me” Brad Paisley
    Hot Shot Debut No. 50 “Georgia Clay” Josh Kelley
    Debut No. 55 “Mama’s Song” Carrie Underwood
    Debut No. 57 “Playing The Part” Jamey Johnson
    Debut No. 58 “Cover Girl” Josh Gracin
    Debut No. 60 “Draw Me A Map” Dierks Bentley

    “Undo It” also debuted on Hot AC at #35. Again, from BB’s chart highlights:

    Adult Pop Songs
    *** No. 1 *** “California Gurls” Katy Perry
    Greatest Gainer No. 11 “Cooler Than Me” Mike Posner
    Debut No. 34 “Mine” Taylor Swift
    Debut No. 35 “Undo It” Carrie Underwood
    Debut No. 36 “Love The Way You Lie” Eminem Featuring Rihanna

  8. #573 – Kris Allen

    I think this Maroon 5 tour is a very good thing for Kris. I’ve noticed his album numbers bump up a lot after each M5 concert, plus the tweets from concertgoers are almost always extremely positive about his performance. KATA was #666 (lol) at about 6:30am Pacific, and is now #529. I hope the 26 Lifehouse dates in the fall do the same thing for the album, I expect they will. New fans are always a good thing.

    Nice!!

    Sony_Music @adamlambert ’s Album is #7 on the Top 100 Albums in Canada after 39 Weeks Go Canada! http://bit.ly/WXYGA

    The Canadian have been amazing in their support for Adam. His album has to be close to going double platinum there.

  12. I beg to differ on the opening for others is helping Kris Allen single/cd in a big way.Why is Keith Urban a chump or something or the other bands? I think not.I believe it has more to do with the music video or the repeat tv appearances.Maybe the Ai news helps out a bit also .

  13. poporange

    There have been tweets from people who went to Kris’s concerts with Keith Urban and Maroon 5 saying they are going to buy Kris’s album. So his opening for these more established acts does seem to have helped him gain some new fans (and sales). The release of the MV and the repeats of his t.v. appearances have likely helped as well.

    It’s likely some combination of all of the above. And the sales bump is probably not huge in terms of actual number of sales. But even a little increase is a good thing!

  14. It’s likely some combination of all of the above. And the sales bump is probably not huge in terms of actual number of sales. But even a little increase is a good thing!

    I’m assuming since this hasn’t been published we have not idea what the numbers actually are. Are the weekly sales or the ‘increase’ being extrapolated from published sales from other artists?

  15. koshka

    I think going mainly off the fact that KATA has been charting higher on iTunes the last several days. We haven’t gotten sales totals for his album for weeks now, except on the rare occasion Brian M has been able to get the info. But whenever we do get the info, it has been selling approx 1K/week. And that was with the album either not charting at all on iTunes or in the #800-#1000 range.

  16. WWFM is still on the Billboard charts….

    #9 Adult Contemporary
    #96 European Hot 100
    #37 Canadian Hot 100

  17. I’m assuming since this hasn’t been published we have not idea what the numbers actually are. Are the weekly sales or the ‘increase’ being extrapolated from published sales from other artists?

    My original comment relates to my own anecdotal observations of KATA’s iTunes position the day after a Maroon 5/Kris concert. I’ve been watching the numbers and have consistently seen an increase after the concerts. I saw no such bump after the BNL concerts. Maybe BNL fans were buying the album but not on iTunes. Who knows? It was a simple observation, nothing more.

  18. Are the weekly sales or the ‘increase’ being extrapolated from published sales from other artists

    Well obviously the difference between 600 and 500 on iTunes ain’t a ton of downloads but it is an increase. If that correlates with Kris opening for a big act, then you could say there may be a connection. It really has nothing to do with anybody else’s downloads. ;)

  19. well something is propelling KATA up the iTunes charts — it was #573 when I posted early this morning — it is now at #435

  20. Wal-mart is not a good place to use to guage cd sells, honestly. Katy’s cd has explicit lyrics, which means Wal-mart only has the edited “family friendly” version. People who really want Katy’s cd will more than likely go somewhere else to get it. Now if Best Buy, or FYE or similar says that Fantasia is selling faster in the first few days, I’ll be impressed.

  21. Back to Me was actually outselling Teenage Dream at Wal-Mart, Target and Best Buy immediately after Fantasia’s appearance on ABC’s Good Morning America, causing shockwaves to ripple around the music business

    From the HDD article.

  22. It really has nothing to do with anybody else’s downloads.

    No, I meant there was a report of say an artist that was rank x number of iTunes positions above (or below) relative to Kris’s position. Thats what I mean. I think this guesstimate was used for some country albums.

    Some other folks answer.. so thanks guys.

  23. CindyM

    That could be it.

    Interesting that TT had a positive report on today’s Mediabase chart after sinking in recent days

    ETA – Actually the bullet and AI have been going the right way for a few days now — huh…probably still nothing to get excited about, though

    probably a momentary blip rather than a sign it might head upwards again, but still something to maybe keep an eye on the next few days

    Actually Walmart is the #1 CD retailer in the US — may not be representative but being #1 there is a very good thing.

    US Music Market Share by retailer (all formats):
    iTunes 28%
    Walmart 12%
    Amazon 12%

    Digital Sales Share (40% of US market is digital)
    iTunes 70%
    AmazonMP3 12%

    CD Sales Share (60% of US market is CD albums)
    Walmart 17%
    Best Buy 14%
    Amazon 11%

  25. Q3, thanks for those Walmart figures. Very interesting, especially considering they only sell the clean versions.

  26. WTH!!!-One of my all-time favorites -Archuleta should absolutely be on the Hot 100 with his new single-I bought it and its been out for enough time.Those Jerks at 19,and Jive are giving him mediocre writers,and producers.They should be tarred and feathered!!!

  27. Saw Kris’s video was #15 on VH1 countdown this morning (Saturday) — up from #18 last week. Didn’t see where Adam or Daughtry ranked

  28. Mediabase update for Danny today

    38 36 DANNY GOKEY I Will Not Say Goodb… 726 656 70 3.655

  29. Here are Kellie Pickler’s numbers

    32 32 KELLIE PICKLER Makin’ Me Fall In Lo… 941 1044 -103 5.453

    This is probably her last week on the chart :(

  30. VH1 Top 20 Countdown: 08.28.10 Weekend |
