Makes sense with everything going on. :katie: Crazy that several of our faves have sold more than that amount with one album in the same time frame, really puts it into perspective just how low this is.

Not surprising since no one is shopping for music in stores right now.

 

I wonder how digital albums are doing

Who is getting a Dua physical album? Her audience is 15 year old girls and 25 year old gay men. They buy stuff on iTunes or stream it.

I hope they go lower and get phased out. It's obnoxious how much retail space is wasted by albums in this day and age.

Clearly no one is forcing anyone to buy them. But it would be nice to have a 20ft long shelf used for something else in the entertainment department of Walmart/Target. They could put those $5 movies on there so people wouldn't have to spend 30 minutes hoping to find a movie I like.

Are the shelves really that big for CDs? Supermarkets here only have a tiny shelf by the cash register. Instead we have stores with all sorts of electronics, from washing machines to video games and CDs/DVDs, laptops, phones etc.

It's a fairly decent chunk of the department. As a kid, there were multiple shelves for albums but now they're down to one, but they are 2 sided. The albums are never in order because nobody cares to reorganize them. The "Hot New Music" cardboard display thing is months out of date. It's just a lot of retail space that could go towards more relevant items or even just removing a big ass piece of metal so there's more room for people.

It may not ever get any better anyways. People may realise they don't need to buy physical album and just buy digital or stream. They have to do it now so may just keep on continuing. Fans always bought albums, ordered them online in X versions anyways, and non collectors will continue to stream and buy digital. This may be the ens of mass physical production of CDs.
