Idol Sales News – Week Ending 04/13/14

“Frozen” easily tops the album charts and should cross 2M in sales. It completes its 10th week at number one allowing it to join the top 10 longest running number one albums in the SoundScan era. One Direction is estimated to be in the top 50, but things can be a bit fluid down near the bottom of the chart – they will be 50-ish.

Pharrel’s “Happy” seems to have a stranglehold on the top of the Download charts and Ed’s “Sing” that was featured last week should debut in the top 10.
