With week-over-week sales falling a mere 14 percent, Adam Lambert easily eclipses the million mark for Whataya Want From Me downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan. And, with more than 86,000 downloads, it’s still the week’s best-selling Idol track.
Carrie Underwood also had a good week, her downloads boosted by appearances on the Academy of Country Music Awards and Idol Gives Back. Temporary Home, Cowboy Casanova, Before He Cheats, All-American Girl, Undo It and Jesus, Take the Wheel all saw double-digit percentage increases, and the studio version of Change, her Idol Gives Back song — rocketed a jaw-dropping 2,001 percent.
