    Last year's Album of the Year winner, Mumford & Sons, returned to #1 after winning. Can it happen to Daft Punk? ( I doubt it.)

    Mumford & Sons Make Grammy-Fueled Return to No. 1 on Billboard 200
    By Keith Caulfield, L.A. | February 20, 2013

    As forecasted a week ago, Mumford & Sons' "Babel" jumps back to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart in the wake of its Grammy Award win for album of the year on Feb. 10. The set -- which rises 4-1 on the tally -- sold 185,000 copies in the week ending Feb. 17, according to Nielsen SoundScan, posting a weekly gain of 242%.

    The figure is a bit larger than initially projected by label sources. A week ago, "Babel" was looking to maybe sell 150,000 to 170,000 in the week after the Grammy Awards. Sale pricing by the iTunes Store -- for Valentine's Day -- helped push "Babel's" sales even bigger. "Babel" was marked down to $6.99 for a limited time by iTunes and was featured in an email blast sent to its customers.

    In turn, the album scores a 260% gain in download sales -- moving from 28,000 to 101,000 for the week. (The largest digital week for a non-debuting album since the week after Christmas, when Taylor Swift's "Red" sold 131,000 downloads.)

    Physical sales for "Babel" last week were still robust, however -- amounting to 55% of "Babel's" sales for the frame.

    "Babel" is also benefitting from two new deluxe editions of the album that were released on Feb. 5. The first, available exclusively at Target, includes three bonus live tracks. A second version, dubbed the "Gentlemen of the Road" edition, was widely-released and boasts a 12 extra live cuts.

              Grammys Spur Early Sales Gains for Daft Punk, Kacey Musgraves, P!nk
              By Keith Caulfield, Los Angeles | January 27, 2014

              The official sales figures aren't in yet, but industry sources suggest that some of the Grammy Awards' biggest winners could be Kacey Musgraves, P!nk and Daft Punk -- all of which might see sales gains of more than 100% for the week ending January 26.

              All of those artists -- plus a cavalcade more -- were on hand for the annual Grammy Awards ceremony, broadcast on CBS on Sunday, January 26. Daft Punk took home multiple awards, including two of the biggest trophies: for album of the year ("Random Access Memories") and record of the year ("Get Lucky," featuring Pharrell and Nile Rodgers).

              Music sales for the week ending January 26, as tracked by Nielsen SoundScan, will not be released until Wednesday morning (January 29). However, label sources have indicated that a number of albums and songs are due for big gains once those figures come out.

              Among the albums aiming for significant gains: P!nk's "The Truth About Love," which may grow by more than 125% (to 8,500 or so for the week) and Sara Bareilles' "The Blessed Unrest" (up by more than 250% to around 8,500 as well).

              Both artists performed on the show, and were nominated in major categories. P!nk's song, "Just Give Me a Reason," was performed by the artist -- in one of her trademark high-flying routines -- and was up for song of the year. While it didn't win that category, the performance and exposure yielded a big sales surge for the song. It may sell around 40,000 for the week -- a gain of more than 130% compared to last week (19,000 in the week ending January 19, according to SoundScan).

              Kacey Musgraves' "Same Trailer Different Park," which won the televised award for best country album (beating out the likes of Taylor Swift and Blake Shelton), could gain by more than 100% for the week. It might sell around 9,000 -- up greatly from last week's tally of 4,000.

              Daft Punk's album of the year winner, "Random Access Memories," may see a 75% jump in sales as well. A week ago, it sold 4,000.

              The new "2014 Grammy Nominess" compilation album is also set for a big debut on the chart. Released last Tuesday (January 21), the album may have sold around 60,000 or so in the week ending January 26. That's up from the 40,000 that was initially forecast a week ago. The album is off to a faster start than normal, as it was unusually released in the same week as the broadcast of the awards itself. Traditionally, the album -- which boasts an array of nominated artists and songs -- arrives to market weeks before the Awards.
              Related

              Sources say the "Grammy Nominees" album may enter at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The top 10 of that chart will be unveiled on Wednesday, January 29.

              All of these albums will likely have an even bigger gain next week (ending February 2), when a full week's worth of post-Grammys impact will be felt. This week's charts will only reflect sales generated in the hours during and after the show, through midnight on Sunday night (January 26).

              In terms of digital songs, the largest seller of the songs performed on the show is Katy Perry's "Dark Horse," which was already the biggest selling song of last week. It's hard to compare her song to anything else that was performed on the show, simply because it was already the top selling song in the country -- and gaining in sales -- before it was performed on the broadcast. A week ago, it sold 261,000 downloads.

              Among the songs performed on the show that are aiming for 100% or more increases this week: P!nk's "Just Give Me a Reason," John Legend's "All Of Me," Musgraves' "Follow Your Arrow" (up by more than 200%) and Taylor Swift's "All Too Well" (which may grow by more than 3,000% to around 18,000 downloads).

              Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "Same Love," featuring Mary Lambert -- which was the centerpiece of an elaborate mass wedding ceremony during the show -- may grow by more than 100% as well. It might have sold around 25,000 for the week ending January 26 -- up from 11,000 a week ago.

                          A year ago I wouldn't have guessed that Lorde and Katy Perry's albums would outlast Eminem (pending final SS #s) and One Direction's in T10 weeks.
                          I suppose future singles could change that...

                            Hey, some debut higher... some sell in the long term. Eminem works more off of a fanbase, hence his high debut and great follow up weeks... but he has no single to sell it. TM certainly didn't do much. Katy and Lorde are working moreso with casuals every week... especially Lorde who is knew.

                            He's still not doing anywhere near shabby. He's doing quite well!
                            I was waiting for Bey to drop so she could show that T&A arent the only ones smashing album SALES!!!

                              I didn't say he's not doing well, but their fans like to brag about how Eminem and 1D are strong album artists, while Katy's haters kept calling her a singles artist and saying that TD should have sold way more cuz of its # of smash singles.

                              Lorde and Eminem both had one smash hit, plus one moderate hit for Lorde and a smattering of moderate hits for Eminem who has a built-in brand from over a decade of success. It's esp impressive for Lorde as It's harder for new artists to do so well b/c they don't have a built-in fanbase.

                                Well. Eminem is an album artist. But without doing anything doesn't help either.

                                @danbarj. Look at the receipts please... Recovery still sells and is still inside the Billboard 200 Album chart. It's not like Recovery sold it's sales just in the first weeks. It had a great long run. He sold also in the long run... I mean those 4,6m copies weren't sold just in 2 months. (If you directed your post towards his album sales in general).

                                In comparison to Recovery, MMLP2 is doing disappointing. I agree. But there is no promo since SNL. There's still no new single (Headlights still wasn't sent to radios... And nothings happening so far). He didn't appear at the Grammy's to perform. He had the opportunity, as he was nominated. But he didn't appear. His usual tactic, being visible for a month and disappear again won't longer work. Although he was more visible during Recovery... VMA's, SNL, Grammy's...

                                Katy appeared at the Grammy's. She promoted on every single big show. Her second single is currently at number 1 on Itunes. Obviously she would sell good.

There's still no new single (Headlights still wasn't sent to radios... And nothings happening so far). He didn't appear at the Grammy's to perform. He had the opportunity, as he was nominated. But he didn't appear. His usual tactic, being visible for a month and disappear again won't longer work. Although he was more visible during Recovery... VMA's, SNL, Grammy's...

                                  Katy appeared at the Grammy's. She promoted on every single big show. Her second single is currently at number 1 on Itunes. Obviously she would sell good.
                                  Truthless - I knew the receipts before commenting. I was speaking ONLY about THIS album. I specifically mentioned TM. Recovery had NA and LTWYL supporting it... sales aside, airplay aside, they were arguably bigger in impact and selling the album than TM and Berzerk. Atleast that's my perception.

                                  That's the difference between this album and his last -- not saying EVERY Eminem album sells its bulk in 2 months. I'm saying THIS album sold mostly from his fanbase and some help from singles, moreso than the last - which drew a larger part of his fanbase and a lot more weekly casual buyers AROUND the world and in the US.

                                  I already addressed Katy and Lorde's sales consistency down to their hits and promotion. So, I don't see why you needed to restate that.
                                  I was waiting for Bey to drop so she could show that T&A arent the only ones smashing album SALES!!!

                                    Hence why I wrote that too. You should write it out then. I wasn't sure if you were on about his sales in general or just the current album.

                                    Yeah alright. I get your point and I agree with you.

                                    I just wanted to point out why she sells so good right now. That was more directed to fridayteenage and not to you.

                                          I don't think it's totally obvious that Katy would still be T10.
                                          Her album which is *about to* get its 2nd #1 (plus a single that missed T10) has already spent more weeks in the T10 than her last album which scored 6 #1s (plus 2 songs that peaked in the T3).

                                              Well she's obviously way bigger now than she was in 2010.

                                                  YOUR ONE-DAYS: The pertinent new releases this week are few, as the focus remains heavily on Grammy winners and performers. Speaking of which, the 2014 Grammy Nominees compilation appears to be giving Disney's Frozen soundtrack some strong competition for #1 next week. Here are this week's key debuts:

                                                  Casting Crowns (Provident) 65-75k
                                                  Of Mice & Men (Rise) 45-55k

                                                  Speaking of Grammy sales bumps, Beyonce, Lorde, Daft Punk and Kacey Musgraves occupy the iTunes Top 10 albums chart, while the broadcast version of "Radioactive" by Imagine Dragons f/Kendrick Lamar has charged up to #3 on the singles side. "Drunk in Love" from Beyonce f/Jay Z, John Legend's "All of Me," Lorde's "Royals" and Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" are not far behind. All in all, seven of the Top 10 singles at iTunes were performed on the Grammys. (1/29p)

                                                    'Grammy Nominees' Album Aiming for First No. 1 on Billboard 200
                                                    By Keith Caulfield, L.A. | January 29, 2014

                                                    Soundtrack to GRAMMY Awards could sell 85,000 copies to top the chart

                                                    The long-running "Grammy Nominees" compilation series may nab its first No. 1 next week on the Billboard 200 chart.

                                                    Industry sources suggest that the new "2014 Grammy Nominees" compilation -- which boasts an array of artists and songs honored at this past Sunday's GRAMMY Awards -- may sell upwards of 85,000 by the end of the tracking week on Sunday, Feb. 2.

                                                    The collection is basking in the glow of the Jan. 26 GRAMMY Awards, which will no doubt push a great many titles up the list next week.

                                                    This past week, it debuted at No. 2 on the chart -- the long-running series' highest debut ever -- with 59,000 sold. The "Nominees" series has twice reached No. 2 -- with this year's edition and the 2013 effort.

                                                    The new Billboard 200's top 10 will be revealed on Wednesday, Feb. 5.

                                                    Also in contention for the No. 1 slot next week is the soundtrack to Disney's "Frozen." The set is currently sitting atop the Billboard 200 -- its third non-consecutive week at No. 1. It sold 93,000 in the week ending January 26, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

                                                    "Frozen" could benefit from the reissue of its parent film as a sing-a-long movie on Friday, Jan. 31. The new print (complete with a bouncing snowflake to help audiences sing along) will bow in more than 2,000 movie theaters, and will be accompanied by a major TV advertising campaign.

                                                    In terms of debuts on the Billboard 200 next week, look for the group Casting Crowns to score possibly the highest new entry, with its new album "Thrive."

                                                    Industry sources suggest the album could sell upwards of 75,000 copies by the end of the tracking week on Sunday, Feb. 2. That sum should secure it a spot somewhere in the top five.

                                                    The group's last studio set, 2011's "Come to the Well," debuted and peaked at No. 2 -- marking the act's second album to peak in the runner-up slot. "Come to the Well" sold 99,000 in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. In total, the act has charted four top 10 sets, stretching back to 2005's "Lifesong," which debuted and peaked at No. 9.

                                                      YOUR TOP 15: As expected, Grammy winners and performers are plentiful in next week’s Top 15; in fact, nine of the 15 below either won, performed or both on the telecast. The 2014 Grammy Nominees compilation get the slight edge today for #1. Disney’s Frozen soundtrack, however, is a very close second and could be the spoiler for Atlantic’s first #1 album since June of last year, one of only three weeks in which the label sat on top in 2013. Here’s how it looks headed into the weekend:

                                                      2014 Grammy Nominees (Atlantic) 90-95k

                                                      Beyonc? (Columbia) 40-45k
                                                      Imagine Dragons (KidinaKorner/Interscope) 30-35k
                                                      Kacey Musgraves (Mercury Nashville) 30-35k

                                                      Katy Perry (Capitol) 21-23k
                                                      Eminem (Shady/Aftermath/Interscope) 18-20k

                                                      Bastille (Virgin) 15-17k

                                                      *Debuts

                                                      Meanwhile, the Grammy noms comp features tracks by key Republic, Columbia, Interscope, RCA, Capitol, Epic, Mercury Nashville, Capitol Nashville, Warner Nashville, Big Machine and indie artists, but only two by acts actually signed to Atlantic. Just sayin’. (1/30p)

                                                        I expected somewhat bigger Grammy effect on Daft Punk and Macklemore, even Lorde

                                                            Katy and Beyoncé possibly decreasing this week after MONSTER performances - probably the two most mainstream appealing... :-? Says little about them (when we look at everyone) and says A LOT about the horrible market and industry!

                                                            Plus a lot of snow attacking the North and Southeast coast of the US!

                                                            Gold takes on new meaning... it is definitely the benchmark for US album success now. Going platinum is a special achievement!
                                                            I was waiting for Bey to drop so she could show that T&A arent the only ones smashing album SALES!!!

                                                              ^ Gold should be 250K and platinum 500K.
