The heirs of Prince may be fighting among themselves, but they should happy about all their recent publicity.
Thanks to a big promotional segment on Sunday’s “60 Minutes,” sales took off big time.
Prince’s never released 2010 album, “Welcome 2 America,” set for July, has soared to number 2 on amazon’s album chart. And that’s just the single CD. The deluxe album package, priced at ninety nine dollars, is number 5!
At the same time, Prince’s “Purple Rain” album jumped to number 36 on iTunes.
So the Prince estate should be feeling very royal right now. And what if “Welcome 2 America” is a little disappointing? Well, what isn’t these days?
Here’s Jon Wertheim’s excellent piece.
