Idol Sales News – Week Ending 04/19/15

Shawn (not Shane) Mendes easily sails to the top of the sales and combined chart this week. Nobody is close. Furious 7 continues to crush on the singles chart which boosts their combined total significantly. Reba slides down a spot to open at third on the BB200 followed in the pattern by Tyler the Creator and Halestorm. Taylor Swift actually drops on the combined as well because Fifty Shades of Grey moves ahead of her due to single performance. Ed and Sam are separated by Drake on the final chart to round out the top of the 10.

Only reality singing competitor on the sales chart is Kelly Clarkson and she clings to the bottom of the combined chart. Fifth Harmony appear on the combined chart. Now 53 appears on both charts and features X-Factorers One Direction. Now ACM features Kelly and Carrie.
