Today’s thread is brought to you by the numbers 27, 63 and 82.
Billboard reports that One Direction’s “Drag Me Down” got dragged down in its second week. It tumbles from 3rd to w7th on the chart largely driven by sales of 63K (down 82% from the 350K it sold last week). That’s hardly surprising. The ardent fans rushed out to buy during the first week and now we must wait for airplay to generate purchases.
Billboard had an interesting article about Russian royalty collection changes. One record exec complained and found himself on the business end of a beating. One is always left wondering who the rule changes are favouring in Russia.
