Xtina and others helped Sony BMG to increase sales!
According to Sony Music, there has been a sales increase of 1.3% in the first quarter of the year. So far this year has been registering an increase of 3.8%. Releases from Usher, Christina Aguilera and the Glee Cast have largely contributed to the increase.
Sony’s statement says: “The increase reflects the strong sales of a number of key releases which more than offset the continued contraction of the physical music market. Best-selling titles during the current quarter included AC/DC’s soundtrack to Iron Man 2, music from the hit U.S. television show Glee, Kana Nishino’s 'To LOVE', Usher’s 'Raymond v Raymond' and Christina Aguilera’s 'Bionic'”.
Christina’s ‘Bionic’ has sold approximately 500,000 copies worldwide, more than two months after its release. It is estimated that the project could reach over one million copies at the end of the year with the holiday season and the release of her film ‘Burlesque’.
Yay! Nobody thought that this album will see the light of success! Go Aguilera!
