Has the album went platinum in US yet or any time soon?
US sales are now close to 780,000 and they have been selling at the rate of close to 40,000 per week. If they can keep this up they should go platinum by the end of July or early August at the latest.
Wish I knew what they were doing over the next week to promote their material. Last concert in southern California is today and next one in Dallas is not until Saturday so wish they would make some TV appearances (Leno for example which is what Olly Murs was on Friday night)
HDD results for 6-27-12: 42,000 copies of Up All Night sold this week in the US of A for a total of about 862,000 to date. Chart position on Billboard Top 200 albums is now 9th so still holding in the top 10.
What Makes You Beautiful dropped to #8 on Billboard Hot 100 but One Thing is up from #47 to #39 and appears to be gaining about 8 chart positions each week over the last month. I'm starting to hear it more and more on the Sirius Radio Channel 2 Top 40 rankings.

ďIím becoming a little more comfortable in front of the camera. I wasnít used to it before. I was thrown into a new lifestyle and everything I do is kind of filmed or photographed. Iím a private guy. I like to keep to myself. Iím shy, maybe. It gets kind of tricky for me but, Iím beginning to find the fun in it. I donít take myself too seriously so if Iím front of the camera, thatís what youíre going to get, me clowning around."(Bruno Mars)
