Jack Johnson keeps record sales afloat for one more week

By Roger Friedman

HollywoodNews.com: Is wimpy Jack Johnson the last rock star? Or is it Leif Garrett-wannabe Justin Bieber, the marketing sensation of 2010?

Sales for the top 50 CDs, according to hitsdailydouble.com, are so minimal that they’re barely registering a number. Johnson sold 250,000 albums last week and finished at number 1. Pathetic. Long gone are the days of a new album selling a million copies.

Without Johnson, the total sales for the week would be far less than a million copies. Albums now hit the top 50 with sales of 9,000 or less. Such a situation would have been unimaginable ten years ago.
