Idol Sales News – Week Ending 01/30/11

The good news for Amos Lee is that he had the highest selling album this week. The bad news is that he’s set a record for the lowest selling number 1 album on the BB200. Cake set the previous record just a few weeks ago with 44K.

In Idol news, almost all the Idols saw an increase in sales. Many in the double digits. Is this because S10 is doing a good job of reminding people that they love Idol? The top selling Idol only album is Crystal with almost 7, 780 in sales, while the top selling Idol related album is the Grammy Nomination CD featuring Adam’s “Whattaya Want From Me” selling 38K (good enough for position number 4 on the chart).

Lee DeWyze’s “Live it Up” has fallen out of the BB200. We may see numbers for him later today.

Now 36 featuring songs by Daughtry and Adam sold Gold this week (503K)
