Support is something that’s hard to quantify & we have been blessed to have a fan base that follows us consistently. Luckily, when we return we have qualitative content to deliver. We’ve been out the loop too long GoJu nation. There have been a lot of adjustments. We updated the website. Taking on a couple of new responsibilities. And have decided to step up our game as we grow into the year 2013. What does this mean for GoJu Nation? That answer will be arriving in the upcoming months GoJu nation. But for now we have a blog to get done and that means this week on da charts has returned. It’s been approximately 4 months since we posted and that’s way too long for GoJu nation to wait. With that being said, let’s see what the charts have to offer this week.
We end the work week off right GoJu Nation by providing you with the Digi-Singles chart. Let me start by giving a HUGE GothamJungle apology for being lax in supplying you with this listing. It’s the industry standard and deserves more respect. I’ll personally take a more involved effort to get you this chart more efficiently. Now lets see what we’re really looking at here.
NCAA tournament has the blog compass off a bit. But you do get your album charts before the end of the week. Noticeably, I see the 1st four ( almost five ) albums breaking the 100k download mark. Very encouraging. Also of note, afterwards the drop off in sales is drastic (#20 not moving at least 15k?!?!, pathetic). Just when these charts get my juices flowing, they let me down. GothamJungle did speak in its infancy that the paradigm has shifted from albums to singles, I’m just nostalgic for the album genre to still dictate the landscape. I’ll have to let that go. On to the actual charts GoJu Nation….
Here we go GoJu Nation. Another week, another chart listing for the people. Its been an interesting couple of weeks since the Grammy’s. With the passing of Whitney Houston creating a purchase frenzy, with new artists getting their say so along with the established ones making sure they aren’t forgotten in today’s landscape, it has created an interesting mix of albums making their mark. The most important thing that I take from this weeks listing is that demographic pockets of fans exist that seemingly follow artists in a way that mainstream has yet to quantify. What that creates is projects like WZRD audibly popping out of nowhere to make a serious dent on da charts. Well that’s the beginning, lets see what else da charts have to offer…
Wondering what effect The Grammy’s have on sales GoJu Nation? The year of Adele is a wonderful case study. The UK superstar had an over 200% bump in sales last week as a result of her Grammy sweep. Record companies already invest a significant part of their marketing budget for the award season. But now they will re-double their efforts after seeing results like this (fyi.com.. I’m still tight that Katy Perry didn’t win anything that night). Especially if you can win one of the big 3 (song, record or album of the year). And before we get into da actual chart, lets remember GoJu Nation, The Grammy’s is an awards ceremony celebrating all genre’s of music. This isn’t a Summer Jam or Jingle Ball where you’re looking for a 3 hour concert. So to all the Soc-Net beasts who are emotionally throwing their immediate opinions around.. think before you press post.
It’s been an eventful week GoJu Nation but you have not been forgotten. I’ve brought da album charts with me to kick off your weekend. Hopefully we’ll be back on schedule next Wednesday etc… And that chart will be of definite interest with the sad loss of Whitney Houston along with the Grammy’s (winners here) happening this period. It will be especially fascinating to see the effect that will have on sales. So keep that on your radar for next week GoJu Nation… and let us not forget we have a current chart to dissect.
Here we are GoJu Nation… I was on the road this time last week so I wasn’t able to get to da charts. I have remedied that this week. And with the Grammy’s this weekend I want GoJu Nation to pay close attention the next couple of weeks. Because this is one of those periods where the charts can spike sales wise. So take a strong look at the numbers and see if your favorite album gets a major boost based on this Sunday’s award show…. FYI.com for the record if Adele doesn’t win song & record of the year, I’ll believe the awards are officially rigged. Now let’s delve into this week’s listings…
2012 is here and with that is the return of This Week on Da Charts. We bring you da albums this blog and if you take a look at our previous posts, you can see how many units some of these major artists have moved. It’s been a bit of a renaissance over the holidays. Albums made a bit of a rebound which is expected at that time of year. But you can see that a potential recovery in the album arena is possible… Now that would be a surprise seeing as how the digi-singles chart has dominated the industry the past few years. Let’s see what da album charts have to offer.
GoJu Nation here’s the only way to end your week off correctly. Da Digi-Singles chart. And as has been the case for the past couple years, this is the industry barometer. Over half of the singles have broken the 100K mark this week. And 2011 is repeating the trend of 2010 with pop being the dominant genre. Literally every single except Drake feat. Nicki Minaj (which can be debatable as a pop single) is in that lane. And pop music has consistently delivered. I wish I had something detrimental to say but I can’t “front”. Quality is all we’ve been getting. Lets see what else da charts have to offer.
I called it into existence GoJo Nation. In the midst of Adele having the year that every artists dreams of I’ve mentioned a few times that Joss Stone must be crying in a corner somewhere. “Rolling in the Deep” is the record she’s been trying to make since she debuted in 2001. Now its important to note: she’s only 24. This may explain the erratic music patterns of her previous 4 studio albums. Let’s see if she’s found her lane with “LP1″
