Idol Sales News – Week Ending 03/28/10

Daughtry goes platinum. Adam is the only Idol album that sees an increase in sales. Kris falls off the BB200 (take your time Jive, no need for a new single at all. Maybe in a couple of months? Or six. Whenever. It’s good. Think reverse psychology will work? Probably not. Whatever. Albums rarely recover from falling out of the BB200 like that).

Meanwhile, the latest K-Tel record (now known as Now!) includes songs from 3 idols (Daughtry, Adam and Kris) debuted with 135K in sales.

Billboard date 04/10/2010
