Jordin Sparks sold 119,000 units in its first week, landing her at #10 on the charts and solidifying her as the lowest in both album sales and chart position for an ‘American Idol‘ winner. That’s cool it doesn’t matter because 30,740,000 viewers voted her our American Idol.

And in this worn down music industry that has taken a huge hit from internet downloading and constant bootlegging 119,000 isn’t that bad for a new artist. I watch TV all of the time and I didn’t see any major promotion for her project anyway. My bad I wasn’t even aware that she had an album out lol. She outsold Jennifer Lopez in her first week lol. That is something to be proud of because J-Lo is a superstar and received adequate support and backing from her major label EMI.

Lopez’s album “Brave” didn’t even hit the top 10 Billboard’s charts and it sold a measly 53,000 copies the first week it was released in October. You expect big numbers from Britney Spears and she isn’t selling well. The music industry as a whole is really suffering from this digital age we are in. That’s why Alicia Keys is the truth!  

So Ms. Sparks it’s cool keep doing your thing because the purpose should be to have longevity.
