“American Idol” season 6 winner Jordin Sparks was expected to fly out of the gate with her new album, but it looks like her album sales for the first week are the lowest of any “Idol” winner. Granted, it’s the first week, but Billboard is reporting Jordin Sparks’ album is “the lowest start and smallest sales debut for any of the show’s winners.” Ouch.
Look on the bright side, though. Jordin Sparks’ debut is sitting at number 10 on the Billboard 200. However, it’s only sold 119,000 copies. Look at it this way: Kelly Clarkson, who won the first season of “American Idol,” sold 297,400 albums and was number one on the charts the first week. Ruben Studdard sold 416,000 and was #1; Fantasia Barrino sold more than 239,00 and was #8; Carrie Underwood sold 315,000 and landed at #2; Taylor Hicks sold 298,000 and was #2.
Has the “American Idol” machine run out of steam?
