About 70.000 worldwide I would say in 3 weeks.
That s already almost the total sales of 1999 deluxe in one year.

Really strange that SOTT didn t make the top 200 last week in France. It was #2 in Belgium, #3 in Germany, #7 in UK, so I m sure it should have made the top 10 ( sales+streaming). The first ordered copies sold fast in stores (7 copies sold the first day) where I live and they ordered abd received new copies. It was #5 on Amazon.fr... . So my interprétation of this is that only simple copies of SOTT (2+3 cds and vinyles) were counted in that charts. Not the 9 and 14 discs version. This must be a barcode problem. Really not cool at all, and a top ten position for Prince has just been stolen. [Edited 10/10/20 5:26am]
Last week SOTT entered the Italian Top 100 Album Chart at n.38, this week evaporated... From the other side, one should consider that this list is full of Italian trash trap phenomena...

-

Italy and France (and some other latin Mediterranean countries) are mono cultures and far more focused on their own culture. Always have been.

And most youngsters in theses countries basically have no idea about Prince.

Once saw a girl (18 yo?) in Lyon (city in east of France) wearing a cool Prince t-shirt, and asked her if she knew who he was. She had no idea, but found the t-shirt cool because it was a 'vintage-thing'.

i think they pressed up a LOT of these.

so i doubt it will go up in price any time soon, for those of you hoping to sell it on.

I thought mistakenly SOTT deluxe was already out of the UK SALES charts (physical + digital) after only two weeks. In fact it is now spending its fourth ( and probably last) week in this chart.
.
Chartrun : 4-47-89-97.
.
For the physical sales charts, thisis even slightly better:
.
Chartrun : 2-44-87-94

Prince is no Michael Jackson. Its interesting to see why Michael Jackson is known by younger people and Prince is not.

SOTT deluxe sold about the same amount in France than in UK or Germany.
It s just that box sets are ineligible to chart.

Prince's music challenged the listner more so than MJ's music. Not to mention the Prince "sound" changed from album to album. Inconjuction to Prince music and videos not readily being available on the web for many years. And Prince wasn't a label artist getting the full backing of a label (like in the 80's.)

More than likely MJ is a phenomenon that had to do with more than just the music. He was also an incredible investor and had the full backing of a media empire. Two things found even in impoverished countries: cigarettes and MJ records.

Prince was like any other artist in that regard. Plenty people have no idea who Madonna or Whitney or Van Halen are etc.

In the US in the 80's, 90's and even until 2007, Prince and MJ sold around the same amount of albums and singles,
Outside the US, this is of course another story...

True... Purple Rain outsold all of MJ's abums in the U.S. besides Thriller ofcourse.

What happened in the UK this week?
Was there a documentary on TV about Prince, or the broadcasting of the SOTT movie?
Because in its 5th week of re release, SOTT gained 69 positions in the sales charts! It is now #28, its second best week.
.
Chartrun : 4-47-89-97-28(!)
.
The physical charts is as always slightly better :
Chartrun : 2-44-87-94-26.
.
In fact this could be explained by its vinyl sales this week (#11 in the vinyl charts). Record store Day?

In Belgium, it s the downfall for its 5th week
Chartrun : 2-20-21-26-129
.
In Netherlands, it stays, steady and has legs
Chartrun : 2-70-out-68-51.
.
SOTT is now the 524th best selling album of all time in this country ( based on charts figures and not on sales). It was the 541th last week.

Prince still rules the US sales charts. Record Store Day was really profitable to SOTT (#18 in the vinyl chart) , since it gains 30(!) Positions.
Karma : Purple Rain loses 30 places.
Now this charts is equally balanced by the ying and the yang. This is so wonderful :
.
#33 SOTT
#95 Purple Rain
.
Look at that incredible chartrun of the US sales chart. Then close your eyes and try to imagine this is the official Billboard charts like it used to be when it was all about sales :

7-21-38-63-33
.
If Trump is reelected, maybe there will be Big Tall Wall all over the place, and everybody will dance to it, and propells SOTT into the top ten again.

The Billboard top album sales charts, yes.
Not the Billboard 200, which is polluted by streaming.

That's certainly the first time I've heard the sales of an expensive, boxset of a 30 year old album compared with votes for a sitting President in one of the most consequential elections in one of the most populous countries in the world.

Did you know that more people voted in the 2019 General Election than bought Sgt. Pepper in 1967? What a flop!
