Shania set to be 2nd Highest Selling Singer of the Year!

Shania’s Selling, and Plenty Are Buying, As Up!, Now 11, Ja Rule Follow

November 20, 2002

Wheeeeee-dogggggies!!!! As expected, country trumps rap this week, as Shania Twain’s eagerly awaited new album, Up! (Mercury Nashville) gallops onto the chart like so many stampeding prairie dogs.
That’s only if you’re listening to the country disc of Twain’s unprecedented two-disc country/pop album. Either way, however, that album appears to be headed for a first week of over 800k, with a shot at 900k before it’s all said and done, according to early reports from national accounts. And that’s a guaranteed #1, cowpoke.

The Twain onslaught will make Jay-Z’s stay at #1 a brief one, but with 600k-plus under his belt after one week, you can bet no tears will stain his Blueprint. Meanwhile, early anlaysis of this year’s Twain effect on retail indicates that an inordinately large share of her sales will be coming from rack accounts (Wal-Mart, etc.). Racks usually lead on big ol’ mainstream country/pop sensations such as Twain, but the early rack numbers are reportedly astounding nonetheless.

Also flying off store shelves is the eleventh installment of the venerable Now series, this one on UTV, featuring hits by Nelly, the Dixie Chicks, Norah Jones and many more. Eearly reports hint that the compilation will have a first week of approximately 300k.

Murder Inc./IDJ’s Ja Rule, meanwhile, looks like he’ll see a first week of more than 200k for his The Last Temptation.

In the latest installment in Epic’s hard-rocking Q4 attack, the much-anticipated debut from Rage/Soundgarden supergroup Audioslave is on track to move 200k for the week, putting it in solid Top 5 contention. Atlantic’s Matchbox Twenty, meanwhile, looks headed for sales of around 150k.

Below that, it's all about another Epic rocker, Mudvayne’s End of All Things to Come, as well as Toni Braxton’s More Than a Woman (Arista) and George Harrison’s Brainwashed (Capitol). Each of these titles should come in at around 100k.

So saddle on up, ride on down to the neighbor’s ranch and spread the news: Shania’s back, and it shore do feel good, even if she is a space-suit wearing, flying-motorcycle-riding science-fiction superhero now. We may not understand it (like most things), but we can still get behind it. Yeeeeeeeeeeeee-hawwwwwwww!!!!

Did you know that the name "Shania" means "I am on my way"? I read it in a magazine.

Of 900K I think that means only 450K people actually bought it. I think each CD in the two CD pack count as a CD towards the count, even though its the same price. I remember this from Garth Brooks's double live album, and there was some controversy over whether the discs should really count towards his record in album sales. So did Shania make one "country" CD and one crap pop one and bundle them together? I like Shania, but I really wish she would go back to "The Woman in Me"
days....


Also, does anyone know what Dixie Chicks song is on the NOW cd???

I believe Shania's CD is a double CD cause it has more than 100mins of songs on it. Well, last week Jay-Z released a double CD too, not sure if they count it as 2 CDs sold. Quite ridiculous if you ask me cause it is the same price?

Ooo, I bought it too, and it is great! : D

I love her too!!!!

Madame Oracene Williams could certainly teach the French & Belgian crowds on how to upgrade their respective primitive behaviours during a tennis match.

If it's a double CD, every copy sold counts as two. And why shouldn't it?

Talking

Shania is great. By the way does anyone have Faith Hill's new album, "Cry"? Is it any good? Is it better than Breathe?






Continue to go upwards Shania!

It is nice, but not as good as Shania's.

It isn't very country.

I don't think one should count as two when the price is the same as for a single CD.

I like "Cry" from Faith, but I hear the new album isn't very country also.
