1st, Paul post Mid-Year soundscan sales. SFTTR has sold 2x as much as WFL this year.
2nd, SFTTR is a monster radio hit too. It'll probably will end up being bigger than WFL.
It'll be harder on BB year, but not at all on soundscan
I confused it, excuse me.
But no, SFTTR won't have the hold "WFL" has had. Adele's songs peak and radio moves on to the next (Rumour Has It is coming), while Rih has suffered with follow-up singles. "WFL" is already beyond 2 billion impressions, while "SFTTR" is a bit beyond 1b.
(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.)
