New Daughtry Song Debuts on Song Chart

at . Comments

The American Idol presence on the digital songs chart increased by one this week, as Daughtry's Over You joins the group. That gives him three songs on the chart, more than any other Idol at present...

  • Over You makes a pretty low-key debut, entering the chart at No. 121 with about 8,000 downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It's further down than either Home, which drops 47-61 after selling 17,000 downloads, a 13.1% drop from the previous week, for a total of 959,000; or It's Not Over, which falls 93-104, selling 9,000 (-14.2%) for a total of 1.43 million.
  • Elliott Yamin's Wait for You remains the top Idol download as measured by this week's sales, although it slips 24-32 on the chart and falls 21% in sales to 27,000. Total is 526,000.
  • Carrie's Before He Cheats falls as well, 39-51, selling 20,0000 (-12.3%) for a total of 1.72 million.
  • Kelly's still got two tracks on the chart. Never Again drops 69-81, selling 13,000 (-15.2%) and hitting the 800,000 total mark. Because of You, with Reba McEntire, falls 86-109, selling a rounded 9,000 (-25.1%) and hitting 100,000.
  • Bucky's A Different World is also down, 127-133, selling 7,000 (-4.4%) to total 146,000. It stays just ahead of Kellie Pickler and I Wonder in total sales; Wonder now has 144,000 after selling 7,000 this past week (-11.3%). It completes a rather downward-oriented chart week for the Idols by dropping from 130 to 148.
