    Okay, so that brings his overall SEVEN MONTHS tootal to “469, 788” copies.

    I don’t see the news here.

    As for Adele, when she experienced her SALES BOOST last year, ’21’ practically sold 3/4 of a million copies that week.

    Then again, as Frank has said, “It’s not all about sales with me. It’s the music that sells”!

    I wish kreayshawn perform so she could have got sales.. But they to focus on gay people

  3. JJFan1814 February 13, 2013

    Sales are counted for by Sunday night. I’m sure the Grammy’s performances’ didn’t cause this but maybe the fact that they’re nominated. Duh. I doubt people rushed out to buy each respective album after each artist performed, da f***?

    Anyways, they should have stable sales next week too.

  4. CBE February 13, 2013

    Definitely not because of the performance, he generated buzz after the Grammys and I think thats the reason he is getting strong numbers the following week…I must admit I never thought he was overrated until his recent publicity stunts and then THAT GRAMMY PERFORMANCE??? I dont like the guy but I cringed watching him sing…guy wasnt even dancing so whats the excuse, New York Power 105 replayed audio and I LOL’d so hard!

    Finally Adele has set the record straight for the brain dead sheep who believe anything the Media say…she never had a problem with CB not standing and whoever has a sensible working brain could tell Adele wasnt even yelling at that pic smh…+100 respect points for Laurie.

  5. QueenCeline February 13, 2013

    How nice. A singer that sells on the basis of their talent and talent alone. I know the haters will come in here talking about that gay s*** but tell me something, did he have ‘I AM GAY’ tattooed on his forehead when he performed. No he didn’t. People support Frank because he takes his craft seriously and dedicates himself to it. He doesn’t spend every night at the club or posing his day away on instagram like some of the talentless fools some of you b****** stan for.

  6. White girl mob 2.0 February 13, 2013

    Hey whoever runs the Grammys office, make sure ya get in touch with kreayshawn! She is a white female rapper from Oakland who has a gold record which is Gucci Gucci she is one of the hardest working females in this music industry! Rihanna, beyonce, nicki minaj ain’t got s*** on her.. Kreayshawn has millions of youtub views MORE than Rihanna & beyonce put together. Kreayshawn needs to be next year Grammys host not some irrelevant rapper like LL cool j f*** that

  7. MIGUEL STAN!!!! February 13, 2013

    How? He sounded terrible!!! My baby on the other hand showed up and showed out!!! He even made kelly wet lol!!

  8. FentySoSnatched February 13, 2013

    Now hold on a f****** moment. Is a Chris Brown gworl really on here talking about vocals? i cannot. I just cannot.

  9. QUEEN MADONNA (I Have 330+ Million Records Sold WW to my name. And You? February 13, 2013

    A “120% Increase with only 10k Copies sold”?

    A F****** MESS.

  10. BeyWhoUWanna February 13, 2013

    The things me and Frank would do if we ever got down. He’d never be the same again tbh.

  11. ARTPOPPINIT February 13, 2013

    @CBE You are hella stupid. Don’t talk about things you don’t know about. It WAS because of the Grammys, you think people rushed to buy his album because Chris beat him up. Besides, everyone who performed had a sales jump so hush and stop hating that he had the biggest one. Worry about your crackhead fav and his non existent Gold plaque.

  12. QueenOnika/HeadBarbInFuckinCharge February 13, 2013

    Ooooh chile the haters are seething today. Wai? Mud that nobody knows who your fave is (side eyes Miguel)

  13. Lana Del Slay February 13, 2013

    Miguel = Anonymous egotistical flop.
    Chris =drug addicted flop.
    Drake = s*** winner.
    Frank = the motherfucking King 2bh.

  14. BeyFRAUD Armstrong (Beyonce’s Weave) February 13, 2013

    Yass Francine Ocean is winning, Plus he looks hot in the above pic. Love it….love it.

  15. CHUDDS February 13, 2013

  17. tits mcgee February 13, 2013

    just shows how powerful of a platform is the grammy’s, cause no sales spike could be basedjust on the terrible performance he gave. #yeesh

  18. MarinaWantsTheD February 13, 2013

    B****** be mad girl. B****** be so f***** mad.

  19. Nay nay February 13, 2013

    Sales r tracked from monday to sunday these r not the full effect of the grammys just the anticipation sales and a few hours of sales pos performances if u want to see real effects wait til next week

  20. Fresh navi February 13, 2013

  21. cake like lady gaga February 13, 2013

    Gimmick Ocean, gworl you know I HATE you, but that topless pic makes me WET….

  22. JER February 13, 2013

    I’d like to take a moment and congratulate Frank Ocean on his Platinum album. I would like to, but it aint happening

  23. OVOForever February 13, 2013

    Why are people so stupid. The Grammys are the reason he sold much. You really believe he just randomly shot up by 100 percent?

  24. Lana Del Slay February 13, 2013

    @FreshNavi Where is Lana’s grammy? The same place Rihanna’s six number one albums are hiding sis.

  25. White girl mob 2.0 February 13, 2013

    The only reason he is sooo popular is because he came out in that open letter he said he like to have unprotected s** with men! If frank would not have came out he would be a nobody sitting at home watching 90201 that’s real talk. Frank would have been a nobody there is No way this guy would have sold them record if he didnt say he like c***.

    That’s like suicide blonde coming out the closet saying he had s** with his little brother which he probably did but that another story for another day.

    That’s like pop royal saying I’m a fake b**** cause I flip flop on artist.

  26. CBE February 13, 2013


    So I’m stupid? LOL

    read your comment again…you and the rest of the posters here believing this is because of Grammy night, u r ignorant and clearly dont know what you on about how can the grammys make him generate those sales before the tracking week is over? if these arent predicted sales then it means the BUZZ generated before the grammys is the reason dummy! again he was terrible LMAO! I was hoping Miguel would win the grammy though…frankie is too arrogant already and by the way Chris sings better then him and he is not even a strong live singer.

  27. White girl mob 2.0 February 13, 2013

    So the only way you can be more respected as a black artist is to come out the closet?! WHAT!!! NO!!! The only way to get record sales, commercial success, tv time, radio play, if you was to come out and say you like to suck c***.. WOW!!!!!!! White artist don’t have to come out the closet to sale something:/ frank is a weak black guy

  28. ENOUGH ONIKA (0 GRAMMY NOMS…) February 13, 2013

    @Beyfraud I don’r know what you see in Frank physically, he is so ugly. Anyway, this could’t be due to that awful performance, must be the nom. So 80,000 copies have now sold??

  29. BAD BAD February 13, 2013

    Tbh, Frank wouldn’t have all these great opportunities like perform at the VMA (Which they barely ever have an R&B Star perform an straight up R&B Song) or The Grammys. It’s because the media is hyping this guy so much because he said that he’s gay now.

  30. White girl mob 2.0 February 13, 2013

    @artpoo you don’t know what you’re taking bout ok little boy. Frank is a GAY man he won because he is a GAY man.. He perform because he is a GAY man.. He sales records because he a GAY man. A white person don’t have to come out the closet to sell record a black man feels a white artist as a threat:/ so the black man has to over power the white artist by coming out the closet to sale records.

  31. White girl mob 2.0 February 13, 2013

    If he came out with a song called ” I love c****” the media blogs will call it on of the most beautiful song titles of all time. Just to make him feel better about him self because he is a happy gay man (smh) and it will shoot right up the iTunes Charts cause he is a happy gay man who loves to suck c** out other men c***

  32. Monsta☈ebel February 13, 2013

    Frank isnt all that at all his off key flat ass grammy performance proved that…. But that dude Miguel tho omg his voice is amazing he made me a fan on grammy night

  33. cake like lady gaga February 13, 2013

    @Mob we all know you are a basic troll, but your last comment, I see no lies…. You are spot on!!!

  34. OMG Just Google Kelsnetwork and see what happens! February 13, 2013

    is frank the guy who became popular after he said he was bisexual?

  35. LA LA February 13, 2013

    Real Talent

  36. James227 February 13, 2013

    One day Frank Ocean will get jumped just for telling that lie for fame & pitty Frank Karma is still alive and kicking.

  37. boopboop February 13, 2013

    i guess i have to be a gay man to get his appeal cuz i don’t find his mopey, depressed looking ass hot at all! even if he was straight i still wouldn’t get it.

  38. ℙᏫℙ ℝᏫᎩAℒᎿᎩ February 13, 2013

    good for Her ass.

    but she sounded horrible at the grammys , home girl needed a tampon on that mouth!

  39. Xocio February 13, 2013

    Go Frank Baby you are THE STAR of the SHOW,

  40. NYC February 13, 2013

    America is GAY OBSESSED. that is all.

  41. DIGGER BEY February 13, 2013

    Lmaooooo Yessssssss Frank SLAY the pressed onez favs lmaoooo. I see the Breezy stans are mad. U all are just mad that Breezy won the battle but Frank won the WAR LMMFAOOOO. And lmao @ Chris singing better than Frank. On what Planet?????? Chris has never put on a great vocal performance but Frank has. I guess since Rihoeanna and Breezy are bac togather. The delusional lies are shared between both stan bases. Chris lip syncs his ass off, definitely when he dances. I think the reason why Frank didn’t put on a great performance at The Grammys, is because he was nervous. Many stars, especially when its their debut performance at The Grammys become nervous. I bet Channel Orange does better than Fame. Lmao Stay Pressed cause Frank is WINNINGGGG!

  42. DIGGER BEY February 13, 2013

    And even if those sales aren’t from the Grammys, he still will see a surge later on lmao. U haters just sold ur selves short.

  43. . : : W A T E R S P O R T S : : . February 13, 2013

    I am very, very happy for him!

    “channel ORANGE” was, like, one of the most creative and artistic albums I’ve ever heard!

  44. lexi February 13, 2013

    to be honest i don’t get the hyppe on him, he is a talented writer, but their are other r&b guys who are better vocalist then he is. Try miguel and the weekend.

  45. MRKAREEMRUIZ February 13, 2013

    Adele is white you morons when will you understand thats why she sells

  46. brandon February 14, 2013

    All these singers depend on s** to sell their music just look at their videos and lyrics it is full of s**. Real artists like Bob Marley, Michael Jackson whose music are still loved by all till now didn’t rely on cheap methods to sell their music but instead let their music speak for itself. These true artists sing about real issues like helping the world, peace and respecting eachother and the message is still present these days now asked Chris Brown to sing about these themes, I don’t think he can even do it because if there is no s** in his songs nobody will listen to him, he has to rely on gimmick to even get heard on radio, so sad. A true artist is the one who doesn’t care about hits he will make and how much albums he/she is going to sell but instead he/she sings about what matters to him/her or the society, something that help the society, because there are always an audience for everything.

    I like the manual sort feature. Thanks to that. As it looks, at the moment the initial sort in there is accidentialy. It would be cool, to sort for example by due date and the change to manual without changing. So it would be possible to sort be date and with a few clicks to sort the day manually.
