The Numbers Game: Deck the halls…

If the charts, department stores, and commercials had their way, we’d skip turkey day and dive full on into Christmas right after Halloween. Mariah jumps in the countdown getting us ready for the season…albeit a month and some change early…and enters the countdown at #4 selling 55,500 in the first week. Get used to seeing her name on this list at least until Feb, her last Christmas album sold 12 million copies world wide. Weezy gets out and his cd drops one spot to #5 on his quest for gold. Mr. 305, Pitbull, drops his first all Spanish album and sells 7,200 copies. I live in Texas, 35% Hispanic or Latino (reporting) and I haven’t seen or heard anything about this album. Anyway, here are the rest of the numbers.
