It's like people started re-buying 21. Crazy.

Still, Adele did the best pop record in years so glad for her.

That figure doesn't seem that high for Usher, but congrats to him.

the official number for Rush is 103,172. Pretty slick. Usher did 128,099.

Nice to see all those old Rush fans still buy stuff.

Metric was pretty damn low, and Motion City didn't even make the top 50 -- sad.

Just realized Motion City didn't break the Top 50. That's crazy. That means they sold what? Less than a few thousand?
