If You Record It, People Will Buy It

February 21, 2010

We mentioned that Sade’s new record, “Soldier of Love,” the group’s first studio album since 2000’s Grammy-winning release “Lovers Rock” came out earlier this month. As it turned out, there were more than a few people who couldn’t wait to get their paws on it.

According to this Associated Press story, “Soldier of Love” sold more than 500,000 copies in its first week.

To quote:

“Soldier of Love” sold 501,665 units in its first week, debuting on top of the Billboard 200 album charts, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

That’s enough to go gold and to give the group their first No. 1 in two decades.
