Lisa Marie Presley Finally Gets Music Bestsellers with All 3 Albums in iTunes Top 20


Lisa Marie Presley wanted to have a music career but it never really happened in a big way.

Sadly, with her death this week, Lisa Marie is finally getting recognition and sales.

Her three solo albums are in the top 21 of iTunes, rising there from literally nowhere. The order is “Storm and Grace” at number 16, “Now What” at 20, and “To Whom it May Concern” at 21. If only she could have seen that when she was alive.

Lisa Marie’s death combined with the “Elvis” movie has put three of her father’s greatest hits collections on the top 100 also. Ironically, Elvis’s family will receive less in sales moneyfor his records than Lisa’s Marie’s will for hers.

Meanwhile, there are two existing official Elvis Presley foundations. Their total assets come only to less than $200,000. The Presley fortune of $100 million was whittled down by bad management, mismanagement and bad advice over the years. Their only successful entity is Graceland, which has not closed for a minute since Lisa Marie died.
