Idol Sales News – Week Ending 07/13/14

UPDATE: BB reports: The week’s 4.1 million haul is the smallest weekly sum for album sales since SoundScan began tracking data in 1991.

Shiver. If it wasn’t so hot outside, I’d think it was middle of January. Sia tops the chart with an estimated 52K in sales. “Frozen” rubs it in by being second.

Next week isn’t going to be much better with HDD predicting a three way race between Jason Mraz, Kidz Bop and Weird Al in the 55K range.
