Idol Sales News – Week Ending 10/12/14

Jason Aldean easily tops the album chart this week with 281K in sales. That’s both impressive and a disappointment. It’s impressive because it is one of the bigger debut sales we’ve had this year. It’s disappointing because when the industry expects you to sell 450-500K in your first week and you sell just over half that, you have failed. Especially when your previous album sold 409K in it’s first week and you’ve led off with a smash single. Still, it’s profitable and Jason won’t be having to eat cat food anytime soon (unless he wants to).

Alex and Sierra is the big debut we’ve been watching this week. They appeared on the last and lowest rated season of the US version of X-Factor. The show was headed towards cancellation and created a whiff of flopitude around the entire season. Alex and Sierra never stopped working and their fans have eagerly purchased the singles they released. Would they continue to buy the album? Sales looked grim yesterday morning with a mere 2,131 for 42nd reported. But, one must always wait until the final HDD reports before knowing the entire story. A&S ended the week with 27,459 for 7th. Very respectable considering the circumstances.

How do Alex and Sierra rack up compared to other X-Factorers? Obviously, we’ll ignore the UK people because that show is actually itself a success and there are some big success stories off that franchise. Let’s compare them to the winners first (let’s see how many we remember):

Season 1 Winner: Melanie Amaro – Hopes were high for this first winner of the franchise. Simon Cowell was believed to be a skilled scout of talent and Fox had wasted no effort in advertising their next hit music program. Simon bragged of 20M viewers and you knew he thought he would bury Idol. He guaranteed a $5M prize because he assured the world he would be finding a star. Even Pepsi committed to featuring the winner in a Superbowl ad that was sure to be a talking point. Well, ratings weren’t as big as Simon had hoped, Melanie didn’t quite have the star power and Pepsi featured Elton John in the ad in order to give it more heft. The label did try several singles for Melanie, but nothing really took. The album release date kept being pushed out and has yet to be released. It likely never will be.

Season 2 Winner: Tate Stevens – Here is a guy who could have success if Idol was any indication. He was the traditional WGWG and Country music is somewhat welcoming to reality singing show competitors. Ratings had sagged for X-Factor and Britney had flopped as a judge, but surely Simon could turn this boat around? This time, they didn’t waste any time in getting out an album for their second winner (they had to release something or nobody would take the show seriously – or so they thought. The Voice demonstrates clearly that nobody is paying attention). Tate released a self-titled album in April of 2013 to finish 18th on the BB200 with 17K in sales.

Clearly, Alex and Sierra are the most successful winners of the X-Factor US.

But, sometimes, it is not the winners who do the best.
Season 1:
Josh Krajcik (2): Burrito dude. He actually released an independent EP before his label album. I can’t easily find any numbers
Chris Rene (3): Recovering addict. “I’m Right Here” debuted at 55 with 9K in sales. Total around 22K
Marcus Canty (4): Released an EP. Sold 4K for 114th on the chart. Fair number of singles released.
Rachel Crow (5): Cute kid. Released an EP. Did not chart on the BB200 (but managed to on one of the Heatseakers). No numbers
Astro (7): Cute kid who raps. Released a bunch of mixed tapes. No numbers

Season 2:
Carly Rose Sinclair (2): Cute kid. Picked up by Syco and working on album. No release date yet.
Fifth Harmony (3): Made up Girl Band. First album due out in December
Emblem3 (4): Not a Boy Band. Released “Nothing to Lose” which sold 46,000 for 7th on the BB200 album. They have since lost their recording contract

So, it would appear that Alex and Sierra are the second biggest success of the X-Factor US franchise so far. If we compare them to winners of the Voice, two of the six Voice winners have outsold them. Season 3’s Cassadee Pope opened with 43K and Season 4’s Danielle Bradbery opened with 41K. Javier Colon (Season 1) opened with 9,974 and Tessanne Chin (Season 5) opened with 7K. Season 2’s Jermaine Paul and Season 6’s Josh Kaufman have yet to release albums. Alex and Sierra also sold out the most recent Idol Winner Caleb Johnson who opened with 11K. Candice Glover the year before sold in the same range at 27K.

On the digital front, Taylor Swift will likely have the best selling single and will go on to top the Hot 100. She’s passed Meghan in AI.

  1. I thought maybe HDD accidentally left out The Swon Brothers, but then I was advised that they are probably looking at selling around 10K in their 1st week, so I guess not.. :(

    YOUR EARLY READS: Next week’s retail picture is still a bit hazy, but we have a few early numbers for y’all to chaw on.

    Florida Georgia Line (Republic Nashville) 180-200k

    Bob Seger (Capitol) 50-60k

    You+Me (RCA) 40-50k

    Hoodie Allen (Hoodie Allen) 35-45k

    U2 (Interscope) 25-30k

    Jessie J (Lava/Republic) 20-25k

    Nico & Vinz (Warner Bros.) 10-15k

    We’ll have a clearer picture tomorrow morning; please take these figures with the requisite grain of salt.

  2. Fifth Harmony released an EP that sold 28K in its first week.

    Bea Miller has also released an EP. I haven’t seen any sales for it, but her single is actually getting a bunch of Top 40 adds. So keep an eye on her

  3. A lot of Fifth Harmony information was left out. They released an EP, Better Together, which hit #6 on the Billboard 200.
    Also they released 3 singles: Miss Movin’ On #76, Me & My Girls #104, and the current single Bo$$ #43. I am not sure how reliable Wikipedia is for this, but it says that Miss Movin’ On went gold.

  4. Emblem3: NOT a boyband!

    Best part of your write-up, Kirstin.

    Eagerly awaiting the Melanie Amaro tell-all book.

  7. The Swon Brothers’ label and/or management are confusing me. Their single has peaked and is descending the radio play charts exactly the same time as their album’s street week. Not to mention, the single is finally selling decently. I’m surprised they didn’t sustain the radio push just a week or two longer.

  8. The X Factor may get a big star in Bea Miller, shes getting tons of Pop adds and the iHeartRadio stations love her

  9. I mentioned her in one of my posts, but it’s way too soon to say that she may become a big star. Her EP hasn’t sold much and I’ve yet to hear her single on the radio. If stations add her but don’t play the song, that doesn’t really help her. Her label does seem to be promoting her at the moment, though, which is a good sign.

    I wish we still had access to Medabase so we could see what kind of spins she is getting.

  10. I heard her on Q102 which is the big Clear Channel Philly radio station, and I was only home for one weekend. She’s opening for Demi now and idk she seems to be catching on (better than Fifth Harmony or Emblem 3)

  11. Before Eric became popular he had a hardcore fanbase (some people call it a grassroots fanbase). He was an artist that was selling a good amount of music & concerts before he was receiving consistent Top 10 hits.

  12. girlygirl are these numbers expected for U2, Jessie J and Nico &Vinz who just had a #1 song?

    Good numbers for Florida Georgia Line following the good numbers of Aldean.

  13. It’s possible that she is, but she’s really just starting to get plays. She is on the Mediabase “Taking off” chart for Top 40 over on All Access. So we can access some of the spin info for her single “Young Blood”

    No one is listed under “leaders” but there are 7 stations listed under “starters” (I think a station needs to give a song 2 spins in a week to be listed as a “starter”). There are 42 spins listed here (Q102 isn’t listed, so that spin you heard may have been the 1st one she got from them; or, if you heard it on the stream, it may not have actually been on the radio, but an online spin)

  14. Fifth Harmony did release an EP in 2013, Better Together 28k first week & #6 BB200.

  15. I’m a little surprised, too. I think with a little more of a push it would’ve reached Top 10. In the last few weeks, I was starting to hear the song more. I’m assuming the reasoning for the new single is to push a new song to coincide with the album promo.

  16. She’s the YT girl competing on DWTS this season. She’s not famous as a singer, but she but out a single and it’s selling.

  17. Later On had been treading water for weeks and if anything, there was a push to keep it alive so that LO had a decent level of airplay when the album streeted. I’ve been saying for weeks that it was clear the song wasn’t going to make the t10 – there just isn’t a window with the high profile singles/big hits around it. There lalso wasn’t enough time to get a new single up the charts with enough airplay when the album came out, so the label just kept LO alive. A week or 2 more with LO on the charts would’ve made no difference in LO’s peak (which was #13 on both charts), especially with the Brad Paisley/Tim McGraw/Carrie trifecta apporaching.

    LO had 33 weeks to catch on as a single seller and it didn’t. To the extent that it’s selling this week, it’s probably thanks to TV and other album promo. This is a case of Arista Nashville doing what it could for LO. Hopefully the Swon Brothers will be able to back up LO with another hit, one that actually sells while getting airplay.

  18. That’s all true but Jason Aldean is still the bigger star, which is why it seems like a bit of a surprise to me

  19. yup. Jessie J has never sold a bunch of albums in the US, U2’s #s were hurt by the album being a free download and Nico & Vinz is just another example of how having one hit single doesn’t necessarily translate into big album sales

    FGL’s prediction is also well down from what they were predicting for them earlier this year (similar to how Aldean’s prediction kept slipping). But it’s still nothing to be ashamed of :)

  20. I wouldn’t differentiate them on “star” power tbh. Eric’s previous album (his breakthrough, Chief), outsold Jason’s previous album (Night Train) by a tiny amount so from that POV this isn’t a crazy result. Jason’s been selling big longer than Eric has and is more of a downloads powerhouse though, so from that POV Eric having a bigger 1st week is definitely an upset. Too, Eric’s lead single for his current album was a metal mess that peaked outside the t25 before he released a more radio-friendly tune (that didn’t peak until well after his current album came out).

  21. Thanks. I hear so much about Jessie J that I thought she was bigger I guess. Though for some reason, I have never cared much for her.

  22. YOUR NEW RELEASES: Country continues its streak at #1 as the sophomore effort from Florida Georgia Line is set to debut on top. This will be the third week in a row that a country title has debuted at #1. And rock legend Bob Seger will return to familiar territory in the upper region of the album chart with a likely #2 finish. Here are this week’s key debuts:

    Florida Georgia Line (Republic Nashville) 185-195k
    Bob Seger (Capitol) 55-60k
    You+Me (RCA) 45-50k
    Hoodie Allen (Hoodie Allen) 30-35k
    The Game (eOne) 27-30k
    U2 (Interscope) 24-27k
    Jessie J (Lava/Republic) 21-24k
    Idina Menzel (Warner Bros.) 18-21k
    Milky Chance (Republic) 16-18k
    Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness (Vanguard) 15-17k
    Swon Brothers (Arista Nashville) 10-12k
    Mary Lambert (Capitol) 8-10k
    Nico & Vinz (Warner Bros.) 6-8k

    As for U2, that was so rude to give people an album for free. What’s WRONG with them? (10/15a)

  23. You + Me is that P!nk side project, right?

    Wow, Nico & Vinz’s prediction really dropped even just from last night.

    I thought The Swon Brothers would sell better, given the promo they’ve gotten, but evidently a Top 15 song on country radio doesn’t translate into album sales, esp if the song itself hasn’t sold all that well. But maybe the 2nd single can help the album have some sort of legs, anyway. From what I’ve heard of it, it’s a good album.

  24. It could have scanned over 500k and not been certified. As we’ve seen with lots of other artists, including idol alums, not all albums and singkes get certified even when they easily could. It’s up to the label and artist whether to do so.

  25. Jessie J’s one of those artists that never fully catches on in the US despite every effort taken by her label and team over many years trying to make it happen. I’d put post Pussycat Dolls Nicole Scherzinger in that same category.

  26. That’s true, but the label was very fast to get MMO certified, so I would think they would want to get Bo$$ certified as well, if it has indeed sold 500+K. It’s been awhile since we’ve seen any total sales for the single, so we don’t really have a clue if it has gone gold or not

  27. why? Aside from the week it was released has it ever been really high on iTunes? And it hasn’t gotten a ton of radio play.

  28. She’s very successful in the UK and parts of Europe. Just never really caught on in the States.

  29. She is way more successful than Scherzinger. She had two hits in the US before “Bang Bang”, but wasn’t a huge albums seller in the US. However, she was huge in the UK and elsewhere. Then she had a sophomore slump with her second album that wasn’t released in the US and this third album is obviously an attempt to get her back on track.

    Anyway, it looks like her album will debut at #2 in the UK, behind Ella Henderson’s debut.

  30. A little late, but here’s the tweets for the week from @idolsnow.

  35. well if it means anyting Fifth Harmony have gotten a lot of high profile gigs: AMA redcarpet, ellen,kelly and michael, today show, arsenio hall, vma red carpet , toured brazil and also won both VMA artist to watch and a Teen Choice Award

  36. You’ve left out a lot of Fifth Harmony info:
    Top 10 debut for EP: Number 6 28k sales(First week)
    Gold Single : Miss Movin On
    Top 50 Single : Boss
    Performances: Ellen, Kelly and Michael, Today Show, Arsenio Hall, 106 and park, VMA RedCarpet , AMA Red Carpet
    Winners of : VMA Artist to Watch ..beating Sam Smith , School Boy Q , Charlie XCX, 5 Seconds of Summer .Also winner of Teen Choice Award single of the year for Boss

  37. She received a lot of attention at the listening party that Sony had with Clear Channel a few months ago, so it’s not surprising that she’s getting spins, but it’s too soon to heap the word start on her. She’s young, and she isn’t going the usual track that most female teens do, so she’s facing the obstacle of trying to get attention on a smaller format.

  38. All I meant by that is that they are two people that, for whatever reasons, haven’t ever really caught on in the US and it’s not for lack of trying by their labels or teams. I do agree Jessie J has been more successful than Nicole, who they’ve been trying to break for nearly 8 years.

  39. ok, I can’t tell you where I got it, but someone got me the current SoundScan total sales for Bo$$ — and it is not close to having gold. Current total sales: 320,110

  40. If Fifth Harmony aren’t really stars , at least they have one certified Gold by the RIAA in June 2014 with their single Miss Movin’ On. Is there any post X Factor USA that has that certified single or album yet?

  41. I doubt Unpack Your Heart has sold much at all. It hasn’t been in the top 1500 on iTunes in weeks.
