Indies See Grammy Sales Bump, Majors Stay Flat
While the awards show didn't hurt them either, artists like Arcade Fire, Lady Antebellum, and Eserpanza Spalding saw the largest gains. In other words, the already well-known hit makers of the last year mostly stayed flat, with the exception of Eminem, while indies saw a significant bump in iTunes. However, it's also important to note that Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" never moved from #1 for this period. The chart below comes courtesy of BigChampagne. Take a look:
