|FOF Trending Report: iTunes Sales Finally Outstrip Retail!
By FOF Staff
Our First Cheque From Sam The Record Man!
Internet Sales have finally pushed by our best retail figures and clear the path to this new age of digital downloads on a global basis. July figures have increased more than three hundred percent over June and actually are of amounts that now warrant a monthly payout.
Leading the pack is RAP with sales about 80 times the rest. Infact most of our income is from RAP! Of our two rap artists, Grits is the King with album and songs sold and more samples than all the others put together and multiplied by four hundred percent!
After RAP is Don Brasseur ahead of the others by a country mile with songs sold and samples.
In the traditional genres are Dave Getchell and Sean Kelly followed by AAVRY KNAPP and TWENTY6HUNDRED.
US sales top the list followed by Great Britian/EU and then Austrailia/New Zealand.
We have only been at this a couple of months and we really have not been pushig the talent out there yet, so thing are still very volitile. But our hat is off to Jon Chuck - Gritz - and his album "Flow With Me" as he is clearly our most commerical artist to date!
