    Default FWIW - Billboard Album Chart - VH Jumps from #73 to #44

    ADKOT is tied with several albums for greatest airplay and sales gainer of the week on the Top 200 - obviously, a 39 position leap is a fairly sizable gain for one week. I'm not sure what accounts for the leap - could be a number of things, I supposed.

    In addition, ADKOT jumped from #6 to #3 on the "hard rock" album chart, also the greatest gainer on that chart.

    I have not yet found any sales-figure data.

    It has to be because the "She's The Woman" is being played on rock radio big time!

    Hey Tattoo is still played in regular rotation on my local rock channel. More than STW. This album has some real staying power and summer's almost here. As well all know, summer is Van Halen.

    Now get ready to get made fun of for a)starting this thread and b)even giving a thought to sales.

    Could the She's The Woman video have anything to do with it or did those charts get compiled prior to the debut? I think the video debuted in the middle of the week if I'm correct.

    If not then look for sales to go up again cuz the video will get a lot of hits on YouTube.

    Great news. I suspect if they play their cards right, releasing other key songs for air play throught the year (You and Your Blues, Stay Frosty and Big River), we will see this type of jump a few more times. Those songs should also be incorportated into the tour, as they are classic vh.

    Good point - I had forgotten about the iTunes sale.

    Others have suggested continued airplay of STW - possibly, although STW has fallen from 36 to 40 on the rock songs chart (which I think is a mix of airplay and sales). I think the video was released after the chart data closed, so I doubt the video release had much (or any) impact.

    Nice!!

    Hopefully, they release some of the other tunes before the summer. Would love to hear 'Stay Frosty' on the radio with the windows rolled down.

    That's awesome!

    Quick question for someone "in the know." Billboard charts sales starting on Monday through Sunday at midnight. So, last weeks sales results (the ones we are talking about in this thread) were based on the previous week. So, didn't the $6.99 iTunes sale occur on Monday, Tue, and Wed (or something like that) last week? Would that not mean that the numbers from the $6.99 sale will count for this past week's sales... To be reported by Billboard this Wednesday?

    I know it doesn't matter too much... They'll be reported anyway. I was just curious. Thanks.
