Cher Has Already Sold A Whopping 90,000 Copies of Her ABBA Album and it’s Only Wednesday


Cher, that’s right, Cher, is dancing her way to number 2 this week on all charts.

Since Friday Cher has sold 90,000 copies of her ABBA album, “Dancing Queen.” By the end of Thursday she could be up to around 140,000.

Of course, the “Dancing Queen” sales are aided by ticket bundles. Everyone who buys a ticket to see Cher in concert gets a copy of the album. But this has become common procedure in the modern age. Paul McCartney recently reached number 1 the same way with his “Egypt Station” album. The RIAA counts those albums.

Something tells me “Dancing Queen” will have legs. Cher is always on tour, for one thing. And you know she, like McCartney, should be featured on the Grammys this year. She’s 72, he’s 76, and we need them both to keep on rocking!
