After months of weak sales, this week will be the higher-sales week, at least untill pre&Xmas season.
Two are the artist that help this momentary re-birth : Coldplay and Lil Wayne
Coldplay with their new album "Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends" enter at n.1 in UK chart with over 300.000 copies sold..impressive because the album is a "thursday release", if they released the album on Monday probably sold a lot more, maybe near at the first week of "X&Y" that sold more than 450.000 in first week. For USA we should wait the next week.
Lil Wayne instead is making a miracle with his album "Carter III", infact the site HitsDailyDouble
say that could sell around 1 million copies in USA. We will wait untill thursday for the real data.
