Some of the big winners from Sunday night’s Grammy Awards are seeing a sizable sales bump today, as many of their albums return to the top of the charts. As of press time, “Album of the Year” winner Kacey Musgraves was sitting at Number One on the iTunes chart with Golden Hour (originally released in March), followed by pop vocal album winner, Ariana Grande at Number Two (though Grande is represented on the chart by her latest album, Thank U, Next, rather than her winning album, Sweetener). Best Americana album winner, Brandi Carlile, follows on the chart at Number Three, while the A Star Is Born soundtrack and H.E.R.’s self-titled EP round out the top five.
This year’s ceremony featured performances by Cardi B, Post Malone, Lady Gaga, Musgraves, Shawn Mendes, H.E.R. and Camila Cabello, among others. All of the artists saw their singles return to the iTunes top 100 songs chart following the show, with Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s “Shallow” leading the way.
Over on the Amazon charts, Carlile’s By The Way, I Forgive You and Musgraves’ Golden Hour occupy the top two slots on the Amazon best-sellers list. Musgraves’ vinyl version of Golden Hour, also makes the list at Number Six, thanks to a special promotional offer that has it currently marked down to just $20 (get it here).
