    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 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 just wanted to point out why she sells so good right now. That was more directed to fridayteenage and not to you.
    Okay buddy! LOL, we were on the same page from jump it seems...
    Oh true .

    No probs anyway.

      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
              Frozen (Walt Disney) 85-90k
              *Casting Crowns (Provident) 70-75k
              Lorde (Lava/Republic) 65-70k
              *Of Mice & Men (Rise) 50-55k
              Beyonc? (Columbia) 40-45k
              Imagine Dragons (KidinaKorner/Interscope) 30-35k
              Kacey Musgraves (Mercury Nashville) 30-35k
              Daft Punk (Columbia) 30-35k
              Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (Macklemore) 24-27k
              Andy Mineo (Reach) 24-27k
              Kidz Bop Kids (Razor & Tie) 21-23k
              Katy Perry (Capitol) 21-23k
              Eminem (Shady/Aftermath/Interscope) 18-20k
              Bruno Mars (Atlantic) 18-20k
              Kendrick Lamar (Aftermath/Interscope) 15-17k
              Jennifer Nettles (Mercury Nashville) 15-17k
              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)

                  The Grammy effect for everyone is disastrous! Welcome to 2014!

                  Hey, atleast Lorde and DP will be at 1 million in a few weeks.
                  I was waiting for Bey to drop so she could show that T&A arent the only ones smashing album SALES!!!

                    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!

                      ^ Gold should be 250K and platinum 500K.

                          Quite low for Macklemore, Eminem keeps dropping week to week - at this point he will need at least 5-7 weeks to cross 2,000,000 - sometime in March, most probably. Glad to see Kendrick double his sales from last week

                            Crap sales considering the Grammy-effect. Seems like danbarj is right...

                            I mean Beyoncé decreasing after having the opening performance? Macklemore & Ryan only up like 5k after a major award win (Best New Artist) as well as probably the performance highlight of the show? An album making the top 20 with sales below 20k in what's usually considered a busy week? Don't know what to think of that...

                                  If some artists can still go platinum in one week, it should still the standard for success for whole-run sales.

                                      Obviously I didn't mean to imply he isn't selling well, I just expected a bit better from him, maybe reaching 2,000,000 a bit faster than he probably will

                                        ...yeah it should be...but...why even Grammy can't boost sales greatly?

                                          An easy indicator for successful albums is the chart run. Stromae's Racine Carrée has been spending 21 weeks at No. 1 in France, look at what it would've sold doing equally in the US and it surely would've reached Diamond by now. Though I of course know that that's a rare exception and not the rule, danbarj .

                                          fridayteenage, just image a chart run you'd consider successful, neither blockbuster nor just modest, and look at what an album XYZ would've sold with it (you can use the forum search or if you don't know how to use it, send the chart run to me so I could do it for you).

                                          @alicia11: The Grammys used to have lots of sales power but I assume that it has cooled down as well considering acts like Casting Crowns or Of Mice & Men are able to reach the top 5 in what used to be such a busy week. The effect is there but it's not as impressive as it used to be.

                                            Exceptions have NEVER made the market. Go through the anals of history for receipts.

                                            If Adele sells 30 million albums, and the other 99 A listers sell BELOW 6 million in the end, then Adele would prove to be the exception and NOT the standard.

                                            Nope, not at all.

                                                Maybe the non-impact of Grammy's has to do with the extreme weather conditions in the US?

                                                  It makes absolutely no sense to base the market standards around the humongous successes of a few outsiders, as danbarj has said. I'm actually starting to turn around on my strong dislike of Timmy proposing lower standards for certifications... I'm shocked myself!

                                                  Terrible after-Grammy week, definitely not what I had been hoping for. Seems I'll have to adjust my expectations even further : /

                                                    we haven't really had an unstoppable album since Adele's 21 in 2012 after that Grammy's nor a major artist die during the run up to the awards or just after. besides extreme weather does affect sales. personally I kind of Hope The RIAA do revise their standard certification thresholds as most major markets have done at least once if not multiple times in recent years to account for dwindling album sales and maybe make the new thresholds retro active across time
