Idol Sales News – Week Ending 07/31/11

Numbers never arrive early enough for me on Wednesdays. Sigh. I used to love the days when we would get download leaks before the sun was even up. So, we wait. While we wait, here is an article from Music Week on downloads being up 15% in Europe (169.95m). So far this year, Jennifer’s “On The Floor” dominates the pan-European download charts with 1.4M in sales. She was one of 8 artists that moved more than 1 million copies of a song. There are 384 retailers reporting to SS across the 30 countries it monitors. The UK is responsible for 47% of one-track sales in Europe. Woah!

Please post numbers as you find them. Thanks!
