Idol Sales News – Week Ending 09/11/11

Scotty and Lauren remain the only two solo Idols in the top 200. Scotty’s album saw a 40% decline? Waning stock, waning spins or waning interest? I think it’s safe to say that all the EPs probably exceeded sales expectations with Scotty’s exceeding them by the most. Sony is probably planning on X-Factor EPs and regretting they never thought of that idea before.
