The 20/20 Experience is the worst-selling top-selling album in a year since SoundScan began recording data, while 2012's top-selling album (Adele's 21) moved 4.41 million units (not to mention a year-high 5.82 million in 2011 as well).

A group of hackers have announced that a new Kanye West-themed cryptocurrency called Coinye West will launch on January 11th.
The effort may be nothing more than an elaborate joke, but launching a cryptocurrency is actually relatively easy since the Bitcoin source code is public. Many serious and half-serious clones have launched, but Coinye and the meme-cenric Dogecoin are getting a lot more attention than Litecoin, Namecoin, and other virtual currencies that attempt to improve upon Bitcoin.

Hope everyone had a great holiday and is starting off 2014 on the right foot. Pretty sure I've already broken most of my resolutions. The "holiday theme" has been retired for another year, I know, sad day. Anyway, we will be releasing a whole bunch of staff and band/label "best of 2013" lists early next week when everyone's champagne and egg-nog hangovers are subsiding and the rest of the music industry starts coming out of hibernation as well.

Travie McCoy will release a new solo album this year.
"Anyone knows from the past, from Gym Class Heroes or (2010ís) ĎLazarus,í that Iíve always given zero F about catering to one genre or one particular audience," McCoy tells Billboard. "Iím influenced by so many different types of music, and this record is no different. Itís kind of me still putting my foot in different waters and trying different things. Itís never really been, like, a conscious decision to be different or, like, color outside the lines. Itís just what I do."

Lorde has opened up about a variety of topics in a new New York Times interview.
People like to paint me in a certain way, but Iím a hugely sex-positive person and I have nothing against anyone getting naked. For me personally, I just donít think it really would complement my music in any way or help me tell a story any better. Itís not like I have a problem with dancing around in undies ó I think you can use that stuff in a hugely powerful way. It just hasnít felt necessary for me.

The Format's repressing of Dog Problems will be delayed a couple weeks.
Unfortunately, there were some etching issues on the Dog Problems vinyl that have caused a bit of a delay in production. Weíre being told they should hopefully be in our hands by the middle of January. Sorry for the last second information, we only just received it yesterday. Weíll pass along more updates as they come along. On the bright side, if youíve placed a vinyl order that does not contain Dog Problems, it should have already shipped earlier this week, or will be shipping on schedule tomorrow.

Former Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison says he did not quit the band. Frontman Corey Taylor, meanwhile, dispelled rumors of the band breaking up.
I would like to start the New Year by addressing the recent rumors and speculation regarding my departure from Slipknot. I want to make it very clear that I DID NOT QUIT SLIPKNOT. This band has been my life for the last 18 years, and I would never abandon it, or my fans. This news has shocked and blindsided me as much as it has all of you. While there is much I would like to say, I must remain silent to further details at this time. I would like to thank you all for your unwavering love and support, and wish everyone a very happy and healthy New...
