Sad to see Paper Route only having sold 10,400 of their album. That record has some awesome songs on it, that should´ve gotten them som mainstream attention.

I don't think so. At the end of the day, having 50,000 that think you're cool enough to buy your album in the first week is pretty neat.

True, but no band at Coachella/Lolla headliner status should be satisfied with 50k. For this type of band, that's really, really low.

Not even sure what to say about Fantasia making that kind of comeback and/or still being in music.

how bout "My Songs..." moving into the top 10 in the digital songs chart?!? Knew that big dip for the album's sales was coming, but two weeks in the top 10 is still pretty great.
