Those sales figures are fine for today’s market, so as long as they keep releasing physical i’m Happy

Yeah that. Consider the fact hardly anyone buys albums anymore.

If the estate gets 100000 per album release I am sure they are going to be happy with that.



If Originals sold 59.000 in the US alone, then you can easily multiply that number by 2 worldwide.
So it sold like 120 k copies in 18 weeks, maybe 140.000 at the en end of the year.
Not so bad considering the lack of promotion.

Think they did some promotion, but mostly online on social media. Prince is there very visible and

the estate can reach his core audience very easy. Think we won`t see many billboards in public places or big tv ads like in the past. It is not that necessary anymore, i guess.

Will be interesting how 1999 will perform... biggrin Think even better...

Yes. The Estate will use his music catalog/vault and album sales as home base for the Prince Brand, but they will make way more $ on movies, Netflix, commercials etc.

Rod, you are great at doing these chart updates so am hoping you do similar for The Beautiful Ones on the global book charts?

not to worry. Will keep checking the best sellers lists on Amazon etc. Suspect it will be a huge seller!
