Taylor's folklore is nice, but Nelly's Folklore has the flavour.

I mean Try alone is better than Taylor's whole album

and we still have One Trick Pony, Explode and iconic Island of Wonder

and let's not forget cultural impact of Nelly sliding on the rainbows of her childhood dreams

Loving the respect that Nelly's "Folklore" has on ATRL, I didn't realize it was loved

week 48 - #82 - 1,500 (08/11)

week 49 - #88 - 1,300 (15/11) (338,310)

 

+ catalogue sales ... i would say the album has def. sold 400,000 units and therefore should be 2x Platinum. It's currently only 1xP (200,000). I mean it was 30 weeks in the top 20... lol. AND it was 2004 and not 2014. According to the IFPI, Germany moved 147 million albums in that year. (The UK moved 175 million albums in 2004).

Definitely - and "Loose" was HUGE in Germany so I'm sure "Folklore" got a lot of recurrent sales

Loose sold over 1,1 million copies, she was so huge. Whoa Nelly is also undercertified. I wish the BVMI (German music industry) would also automatically certify albums like the BPI does...

Taylor's album is excellent, but nothing can compare to the portuguese masterpiece which is Nelly's Folklore.

 

Try, Força, Explode and Powerless alone, uuugh her power :smitten:
