Grammy Bump Already In Full Effect

    The Grammys experienced big ratings this weekend, but the real benefit for the recording industry and the bands involved is the vaunted Grammy bump, the post-show increase in album sales. The Grammy bump was only able to work its magic on two days of sales, but it made it count: Mumford & Sons, who appeared on the show, lept all the way to number two on the charts this week, selling 52,000 copies of their Sigh No More album, which experienced a doubling in sales this week. The Arcade Fire’s Suburbs also experienced a huge jump, leaping by 95 percent, selling 12,000 copies. That’s not much, but a 95 percent increase is ridonkulous. Muse, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga and Eminem all scored huge increases as well. [AV Club]
