POM is a #1 debut and just like all other #1 debuts in recent times, it may never see the top spot again
Ppl saying the grammy effect wore off...BS...every year the grammy effect last more than one week...the effect of any music award show last more than a week
Stop with the excuses
Besides "BTW", lead single from anticipated artist who hadn't released anything in nearly a year, there hasn't been a moment a single has been premiered at the Grammys and did well for you to suggest this. And you are wrong anyway. Grammy effect, and most other award shows, wear off soon. Most don't even have much of an impact, bar a few songs, and this year the ratings were at their highest. You can research the articles following Grammy weeks to see all the songs declines if you'd like. I won't do it since I know this stuff.
You were extremely pessimistic about it debuting at #1, and though we can't see the future, I halfway say you'll be wrong again.
(That number was enhanced by Amazon MP3's decision to sell the set for 99-cents for two days during its first week. Billboard has estimated that Amazon MP3's 99-cent version resulted in 440,000 copies sold.)
