Topping the charts is getting easier

Rihanna: Dismal sales take her to the top of the charts.
Quite a few stories this week about how few copies Rihanna shifted of her new album. Yes it got to number 1. The problem is that it sold the fewest copies any number 1 has sold in a single week since accurate records were kept. It sold fewer than 10,000 copies. I’m including a few links to news articles about this.
Interesting from an Irish point of view is that before Rihanna the lowest sales for a number one album were the Cranberries.
According to reports Rihanna plunged to number 8 this week.
This article goes into a deeper analysis of the current state of the industry. Very interesting reading.
