Up, Up, And Away! Janelle Monáe Skyrockets Into Top 10 Amazon Spot
The Glastonbury was good for Miss Janelle Monáe. Following her performance at the festival, her album Archandroid blasted into the Amazon.co.uk music top ten due to a 4928% increase in sales. The quirky Wondaland singer’s record showed much improvement, as did albums by Mumford & Sons (1400%), Primal Scream (920%) and U2 (747%).
‘Many people have enjoyed the coverage of Glastonbury over the weekend and when an artist really captures the imagination, music fans will go online and order the album immediately,’ said Roger Greensmith, music and MP3 manager at Amazon.co.uk Ltd. ‘We have seen that for both headline artists like U2 and Coldplay as well as artists that people may not have seen before like Janelle Monáe.’
