Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran, Beck & Sia Climb iTunes Charts Post-Grammys
The 2015 Grammy Awards was home to a long, long list of performers from all genres who, instead of the typical uptempo, opted for incredibly slow and somber numbers. But did the show viewers respond well to it? Well, the post-show sales boost will show us just that!
The artist who made an impact on today’s iTunes download chart include Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran, Beck and Sia! Beck, who now infamously won Album of the Year last night, finds his Morning Phase LP sitting comfortably at number one on the Top Albums chart. He can thank Kanye West for that! Following right behind on the chart are Smith’s In The Lonely Hour and Sheeran’s x, who performed “Stay With Me” alongside Mary J. Blige and “Thinking Out Loud” with John Mayer and Herbie Hancock, respectively. Smith also took home four awards last night including Song of the Year, which definitely helped to boost his rankings!
Sia‘s album, 1000 Forms Of Fear, is back in the top 10 on the iTunes chart following her stunning “Chandelier” performance (which unexpectedly featured actress Kristen Wiig). As for the Top Songs chart? Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud” rounds out the top five, and Rihanna‘s “FourFiveSeconds” collaboration with Kanye West and Paul McCartney follows at the number six spot after the trio’s powerful performance. Surprisingly enough, Madonna‘s “Living For Love” nor Katy Perry‘s “By The Grace Of God” (some of the most-talked about performances of the night) did not make the top 10 of either chart.
