Unfortunately, physical singles only account for approximately 5% of total sales, nowadays; over 90% are downloads.

After a dip in the U.S. charts last week, it looks like her album Rockferry will rebound this week to 5 from 8. Her single Mercy is also expected to recover from 33 to a top 20 slot.

Go megastar!

The UK album chart is interesting, it seems that every week we get a new number one, based largely on pre-sales, which then quiclky disappears from the top .... whereas Duffy just stays strong.
