Some of Sunday night’s big Grammy winners are still reaping the rewards less than 24 hours later. Winning artists and their albums typically see a sizable sales bump in the days immediately following the show, and as of press time, “Album of the Year” winner Kacey Musgraves was sitting at No. 1 on the iTunes chart with “Golden Hour,” followed by pop vocal album winner, Ariana Grande at No. 2 (though Grande is represented on the chart by her latest album, “thank u, next”).
Best Americana album winner, Brandi Carlile, follows on the chart at No. 3, while the “A Star Is Born” soundtrack, H.E.R.’s self-titled EP and Post Malone’s “beerbong & bentleys” also make a jump back into the iTunes top 10.
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 makes the list again at #6 with the vinyl version of “Golden Hour,” which has been marked down to $20 with a special promotional offer (get it here).
Fueled by her electrifying performance and her monumental rap album win, Cardi B also makes a return to the charts, with her album, “Invasion of Privacy,” which first came out last April. Cardi’s sales are helped by a recently released double vinyl version of the album, which is currently holding at No. 1 on the Amazon rap and hip-hop best-sellers list.
