'Idol' track sales: Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Lopez, Frenchie Davis - Idol Chatter: American Idol News, Rumors, & Information
Amazing sales for Remind me considering there's no video or TV performance yet and not even top 10 on radio!
Thank you! Nice percentage increase for PO. Do we know why it's sales increased while the other albums listed saw decreases? I wonder where CC is now in total sales. Obviously great sales for RM. I hope it keeps up like this for a long, long time. lol
Remind Me has passed DYWS way over now
glad to see Kellie pushing up on the chart as well! didn't know "The Best Days of Your Life" has gone platinum! Come to think of it, this is her most successful single commercially and also highest peaked single, I believe!
good numbers BHC is a single that just won't die though it'll never be nea as huge as Candle In The Wind 1997 was as that's the only single in US History to go Diamond 11x Platinum and that was within 2 1/2 weeks of it's September 22nd 1997 release.
side note the RIAA may soon be decreasing it's certification Thresholds due to dwindling music sales by as much as 50% so technically meaning diamond would become 5 million instead of 10 for both singles and albums so hypothetically old albums would be grandfathered in so SH would be diamond+ as would be Mariah Carey Merry Christmas Butterfly #1's & The Emancipation of Mimi amongst others and Mariah is going back to Sony next year
^that would be so cool if some hearts got certified diamond, it's still does so well, and so does Bhc! That song is never gonna die! And remind me is doing great too
BHC continues to sell about 5k per week. In two weeks, BHC could pass "No Air" as the best selling single by an Idol alum.
