Sales Numbers – Week Ending 05/05/2017

HDD reports that X-Factor’s Niall Horan dropped a new single this morning and “Slow Hands” is not taking it slowly…it is already number 1 on iTunes in 33 countries. Groovy beat. Why is sweat dripping down their dirty laundry? Are they doing it in the laundry basket?

On the sales charts, the members of Gorillaz must be popping champagne corks because they have the best selling album of the week. Oh, wait, they are a virtual band. This animated British band is the creation of Daman Albarn. Simon is taking notes. The band was created in 1998 and even has former members. It will have to move a few more units to hold off Kendrick Lamar in combined sales. R&B legend Mary J. Blige is second in sales while Country Icon Willie Nelson is 4th. Rapper Wale is debuting in 6th and Lea Michele from Glee is 7th. Indie Pop artist Sylvan Esso is debuting 9th.

Pentatonix is 26th in sales while Carrie Underwood appears on a duet with Keith Urban on his “Ripcord” at 25th in sales and 32nd combined. Tori Kelly is on the “Sing” soundtrack is 37th on combined.
