Record Sales: Week 49   11/29/11 – 12/05/11

Tuesday: Perhaps you look forward to getting over the Monday Blues, or maybe you’re juiced for New Release Day, for myself, the aforementioned are on my mind, not to mention last week’s record sales.

Adele’s 21 has been virtually unstoppable, seems like there’s 150,000 stocking stuffers on their way. The Young Money Toronto boy is nearing Platinum, Coldplay is showing an impressive 50k and Trey Songz’s EP comes in at #24. Tis the season full of Christmas records, pretty boy Buble’s incredibly successful original title, Bieber’s Mistletoe, Glee’s compilation, and approaching Gold status, She & Him’s indie Christmas music.

Stay tuned for next weeks numbers to see if The Black Keys can follow up the success of Brothers, or will T-Pain’s comeback album steal the show. Perhaps Robin Thicke’s Love After War will serenade it’s way to the top, and The Root’s concept album hopes not to be Undun.
