Yeah sorry man I got another question x) Digital sales aren't makin up the declining cd sales, but are the singles makin that up a bit ? I mean when I look back to singles sales of worldwide hits like Lose yourself or Yeah etc and I see back then they were only platinum in usa and didn't do much more in the rest, and now I see like lolipop going 5x platinum or watcha say 3times etc I think single sales are going a lot higher then before. Guys like jason derulo are rich because of their singles while their album doing nothing on the charts. And then Co-sign when you say B.O.B sales are high in this time period, and I even think that in 2009-2010 being a starting hip hop artist helps you more then in another genre, Hip hop is like the only style of music where you see this big community that follow the game talk about how they spit etc, in pop,jazz,electro etc you will never see a debate about vocal techniques etc Kid cudi went fourth even if his day and nite buzz was dead did 110k,B.O.B number 1,Drake number one for sure, etc While the new pop rnb singers of the year Jay sean and Jason derulo with their smash hits, combine their albums sales you don't even get to what cudi has sold now... Ok for sure you can be a new commercial artist an sell like bieber,kesha and owl city but they're cases apart.. BTW thanks man for answers

There's one thing I don't get, I mean singles get gold etc by downloads, but can album digital sales help him get certified ? Like in the case of B.O.B the guy does great sales on itunes he's like number one, he gets more royalties out of his downloads, were in a digital time period, Nothin on you got platinum mostly by digital sales so I don't get why the digital album sales come over like not important. By the way for all those B.O.B hattaz saying that with his buzz he should do lot betta airplanes 7 on billboard, without even being in the radio chart and the clip doesn't come for least two weeks while mr big buzz drake does 14 with high radio chart,song out like ages ago so does the clip. Oh by the way Phrozenone I don't get how UK music sales were up in 2009 ? It's like one of the only country I assume Uk isn't really your market but what the heck maybe you got and idea ?

Yeah Phrozenone you said last week that B.O.B did like 200k on usa itunes, when bilboard publish sales isn't that supposed to be said ? I sometimes read like for kesha '(90 percent album sales were digital)' , Does the guy get less royalties by selling on itunes actually ? Kinda fucked up that they're is some much money waisted while you could just invest it in this war against downloading, Cuz when all the big sellers of the past like eminem, jay-z etc will stop they're won't be anymore 400k first weeks, 2 years from now they're might enter the bilboard top ten with 10k --'

Omg Airplanes is 9 on billboard 100 and he only impacted radio 2 days ago,itunes one week, and doesn't even have a videoclip, I'm sure when that will be released it will be a number one hit :)

I think that the only rap albums capable of having a certification in 2010-2011 are weezy probably platinum or two times platinum,drake gold for sure but maybe platinum by shipping not by albums sold, B.O.B gold with a little help of airplanes and a third single, I Hope kid cudi will do gold with his next album but the man still at 320k something like that and even if his now better known by people when he drops his second album the music industry will have regressed so..

And justin bieber appeal to girls of 10-14 year old that don't really download and would do anything to get his album in stores so you can't compare.. and also saying day and night is superior to nothin on you or airplanes isn't true they are all good songs but airplanes got more positive critic then day and night and nothin on you charted highe. Kid cudi had a bigger buzz by the the media, and he came up with drake they were like the messiah for the rap mouvement at the time. Kid cudi had a great album but read pro critics B.O.B done better ! 80k is still good for the times, all new artist don't do great numbers, if you compare do other genres like pop, jason derulo got a smash number one hit with watcha say and got a uk and a number one on the billboard pop chart with in my head and he did 60k first week so ... The only artist doing great numbers are those who in the past sold alot (when albums still sold), but compare to their previous number it's nothing, .. makes me kinda scary bout to the time where those great sellers of the past like eminem,jay-z etc stop music and leave place fort the new ones, they're won't be alot of gold records and platinum that's for sure

Phrozenone I have read your comments and I agree. But are you sure he did 200k with Itunes because he don't even appear on the top 100 itunes album sales. And it's really rare an artist would sell that much on itunes kesha is like in the top 10 albums of itunes and 70 percent from her last week sales were digital and that was like 30 thousand so I can't believe he sold like 200k, if you said like 200k individual songs of the album sold it sound more realistic (I'm not saying you're a liar you work in the business man it's just that 85k is understandable but 200k) but if it really is 200k will they say next week when the neww bilboard 200 is published that he sold 200k or 85 ? Anyways I think it going to be 100k phydical sales due to the weekend and the mouth to mouth buzz. They predicted justin bieber to sell 250k but he did 290k so you never know.
