Weekly Album Sales & Chart Update (06/06/12)

Posted by: Thomas Nassiff (06/06/12)
John Mayer coasts at the top of the charts again this week, moving almost 68,000 additional copies of Born and Raised - a 71 percent decline from his meteoric sales last week. Adele and One Direction come in after Mayer, while Regina Spektor and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros see the two highest debuts at No. 4 (38,000) and No. 6 (29,000), respectively. Sigur Ros also saw an excellent debut week, cracking the top 10 and No. 9 with 24,000 copies of Valtari. Equally as awesome, fun. saw a huge rise in sales, increasing 57 percent and selling another 17,000 copies of Some Nights - perhaps partially in thanks to the awesome music video they came out with.

Congrats to Fun! Bought Some Nights on vinyl last weekend and it's been amazing to me. I'm sure the music video and all of the appearances last week helped out with sales.

I'm always intrigued by how much record sales are helped by media appearances and, in Fun's case, new music video releases.

Fun.'s sales are almost certainly due to their recent television appearances and not the aforementioned music video.

Agreed, and they'll probably stay strong this week thanks to the MTV awards performance.

Also, great to see those numbers for Regina Spektor's new album. Love that girl.

Yea, I don't think the video had anything to do with the sales rise on the charts. Next week, we shall see.
