What's more, 20 out of the top 50 showed positive gains from the week before and 12 were new entries.
Could the rise of the current release digital single have anything to do with that? Is an album priced at $9.99 suddenly a better bargain than a single at $1.29. Maybe it's just a coincidence and an odd week, but it's something worth looking at the next few weeks to see if it signals a trend.
Either way, it was a great sales week. Not quite like the days of old when with sales in the millions and near millions, but better than it's been in a long, long time.
