Despite the amazing news that the girls could have a chance of securing a top 3 album in the States despite not having a top 40 single – the album sales has taken its toll on lead single Wings.
We were very surprised when the song failed to reach the top 40 – purely because it’s a brilliant song, but it looks like the girls will no longer have Wings within the top 100.
The Billboard Hot 100 was revealed today and Wings just managed to squeeze in the top 100 – bowing out at #98 (dropping 11 places).
As if that wasn’t enough bad news, the song sold 26,436 copies in the recent week which is a 13% decline from the week before. The sales of Wings has actually been declining in the last THREE weeks from 32k to 26k.
The song is also rapidly falling on the Billboard Digital Songs dropping from 64 to 80.
At this current rate the girls are set to drop out the top 100; although the song was bound to drop eventually, the girls are without a top 40 hit and Wings will probably be classified as a flop. Despite no promo compared to Wings, DNA (single) is at #59 on the US iTunes Charts.
Sales are currently at 304,268 for Wings, however DNA (album) has only dropped 1 place on iTunes to #3.
Lets up the upcoming interviews and appearances (mainly GMA) will give the song a boost it so badly needs.
If you haven’t already then go and buy DNA available digitally and in store!
