Idol Sales News – Week Ending 04/12/15

All Time Low crushes on the sales chart for number one only to be crushed back in turn on the download chart and lose the top of the BB200 to Fast and Furious. Fast and Furious are fueled by a tribute song to Paul Walker, so we’ll see how long that lasts. There are other tracks resonating the album too.

Taylor, Maroon 5, Ed, Meghan and Drake all see movement up on the SPS chart compared to the sales chart (Drake makes a massive move). Meanwhile, Kenrick, Empire, Wale, Same and Darius slide backwards.

From our reality shows, Kelly holds steady on the sales chart and moves up to spots on the SPS (although backwards 7 steps from the previous week). Fifth Harmony and One Direction are off the sales charts, but their singles put them mon the SPS chart with Fifth Harmony moving up a notch and One Direction moving back several. One Direction also appears on Now 53 which gets no help from singles sales.

This is the daily numbers thread. Please post numbers as you find them. Thanks!
