Billboard Update for Issue 01/12/08

This week’s Idol Billboard Update Chart, just for YOU.


  • All of the Idols on the Billboard 200 had decreased sales this week, except for Elliott Yamin’s “Sounds of the Season” (sold exclusively through Target). It had a last minute holiday surge that landed it back on the Billboard 200 at #123.
  • Singles that had been squeezed off the charts by holiday songs the past couple of weeks are making their way back. This is especially apparent on the recurrent charts, where songs by Carrie Underwood “Before He Cheats”, Daughtry, “Home” and Elliott Yamin, “Wait for You” are making a reappearance.
  • Carrie Underwood’s new single, “All American Girl” has just made the Hot Country Songs Top 20.
