Well that s ur opinionspiritboy wrote:I don't think MX will reach 7 million copies, 5 million is attainable i guess. And i really hope i'm wrong but PoC won't be a huge hit as some of you think it will be.
Certifications are basically granted on two criteria;kpilkington86 wrote:I'm unfamiliar with when certifications are released.
For them to get UK 4X Platinum, I believe it is based on shipments.
So, would the certification come when they are close approaching 1.2 mill in the UK or do artists/bands usually get certified after they reach the certification selling point?
Thanks to whomever responds.
Cant believe how well Paradise has held up in the UK, MX has had an impressive chart run so far aswel.arab wrote:UK

It needs a successful single to push it back to the top 20.stevyy wrote:I think MX is quiter over in the US now. Maybe it can hang on in the lower regions for some time now.
POC could be a successfull single, but it won't affect on album sales IMO. Can't see Riri fans buying Mylo Xyloto tbh.Nackar wrote: I don't know... I've never really believed in the pushing power of POC, but that might be because I think it's a bit bland myself. It could be an OK hit but if it could really offer the push they need? Not sure...
I'm really surprised that USA doesn't support them this era. Few discounts(including $0.25 deal), Grammys performance, Good Morning America...damn, I don't get it.Nackar wrote:But yeah, the drops in the US are disappointing. It's quite funny to see how, this era, the UK seems to be the most supportive of the two whereas during VLV the US was more supportive. Although considering the album is now slightly above 1 million in both nations and the UK has a fifth of the inhabitants... doing those little calculations always remind me how much healthier the UK market is
