Good news and bad news I’m afraid. We will start with the good news, their debut single ‘Wings’ has now officially gone Gold as recognised by the RIAA.
The single has been recorded as Gold for 500,000+ digital copies sold of the single, which was awarded the certification on the 12th August this year, just under a year after being released.
However, this comes after the estimated sales for DNA has come in; although these are only estimates, the actual number will not be far off so these give a very good indication of how well the girls are doing in the States.
187) 114,000 – WOMAN TO WOMAN by Keyshia Cole
188) 113,000 – HALL OF FAME by Big Sean
189) 113,000 – AMOK by Atoms For Peace
190) 113,000 – THE BEST OF-20TH CENTURY MASTERS… by Lynyrd Skynyrd
191) 113,000 – JOYAS PRESTADAS: POP by Jenni Rivera
192) 113,000 – DNA by Little Mix
193) 113,000 – SONGS FROM ST SOMEWHERE by Jimmy Buffett
194) 113,000 – SOMETHING ELSE by Tech N9ne
However what should be said is 113,000+ sales & a #4 album without a top 40 hit is a commendable effort. Let’s hope Salute tops that.
Other notable albums are Take Me Home at #32 (463,000) with the top seller being JT’s 20/20 Experience selling in excess of around 2.3 million copies
