Super Bowl Bump: Halftime Stars Rock 8 of Top 10 iTunes Singles, 6 of Top 10 Albums


The Super Bowl paid off handsomely for all participants.

Not only did the Rams win, but do did all the musical guests.

Currently, Mary J Blige has the number 1 album, “Good Morning Gorgeous.” She also has the number 4 single with her classic hit, “Family Affair.”

Indeed, 8 of the top 10 singles on iTunes are by Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg, Eminem, and 50 Cent. On the album chart, 6 of the top 10 are by the Avengers of Hip Hop who performed on Sunday night.

After that, both charts are littered with releases from Mary J, Eminem, Dr. Dre, Snoop, 50 Cent, and Kendrick Lamar.

So the appearances didn’t just help, they made the records skyrocket.

For Mary J, this was the best possible album launch of her career.

Of course, this also knocked Adele’s “30” album out of the top 10 and sent other current hits scurrying to the bottom of the charts. They’ll be back, I’m sure, but there’s nothing like a Super Bowl sales bump!
