Prince’s Death Skyrockets His Albums To Number 1 and 2 On The Billboard Charts
So this past week Prince has dominated the television screen and our conversations as we mourn the death of one of our Entertainment greats and try and figure out what exactly led to
Meanwhile his music (which most of it you had to purchase) is firing up the charts! This usually happens when really popular musicians die though, remember when Michael Jackson died? His music was selling out the wazoo lol.
“The Very Best of Prince” has claimed the number one spot, while previous chart-topper “Purple Rain” settles for number two this time around. By controlling the number one and two positions on the Billboard 200 at the same time, Prince joins an exclusive group of musicians who have dominated the charts with more than one work. The first artist to own both spots was singer-songwriter Jim Croce back in 1974, per MSN.com.
On the day Prince died, “239,000 of his albums were bought by grieving fans, according to Nielsen Music. During the weekend, another 399,000 albums were sold,” per CNN Music. Those weekend sales were up more than 16,000% from the previous weekend.
Since its release in 1984, “Purple Rain” has sold over thirteen million copies in the decades since.
