Posted on

Winehousegrammys_dl The glitz of the 50th annual Grammy Awards has faded, but the buzz from the stage continues to echo. Today, Nielsen SoundScan released its post-show sales tally, and several of the night’s winners scored big on the retail front. Among the chart leaders: Amy Winehouse, with a whopping 368 percent bump in album sales, bringing her to-date total to 1,649,010. Also impressive were her digital sales, which spiked 196 percent to 283,303. “Rehab,” as a singular download, saw a similar boost, up 234 percent to 1,175,513. Vince Gill wasn’t far behind. His latest, These Days, shot up 618 percent with total sales just shy of 350,000. But outshining them both was Album of the Year winner, Herbie Hancock, whose tribute to Joni Mitchell saw a 966 percent rise in sales, totaling just over 53,000 copies, and bringing his tally to 114,390. Overall, album sales were up 16 percent from last week, which, in today’s music climate, is cause for celebration, albeit tempered by 2007’s double-digit overall decline. See how other Grammy-featured acts fared at retail after the jump.
