Everyone knows that CD sales have been steadily in decline for the past decade, however another milestone occurred this week: Taylor Swift managed to claim the Number One spot on the Billboard charts by selling just 53,000 copies of her now-triple-platinum 2010 album Speak Now. Never before in the history of the SoundScan era (which began in 1991) has an album sold so few copies and still managed to land at the top spot on the charts.
Speak Now beat out—if you can even put it that way—the previous record holder, the Dreamgirls soundtrack, which hit the top of the charts back in January of 2007 by selling about sixty thousand copies in one week.
A Day To Remember must be on their peers’ good side, as they reeled in some high-profile acts, such as Andrew W.K., Bring Me The Horizon and pretty much the rest of the 2010 Warped Tour, to lip-synch the lyrics in their new video for “All I Want.” Check it.
Check out other new single and video premieres at MySpace Music.
A Day To Remember have announced they will embark on a spring tour kicking off in March. “The Game Changers Tour” will commence on March 10 in Philadelphia and conclude April 18 in St. Petersburg, Florida. A Day To Remember is also confirmed for a mainstage slot at Bamboozle 2011 on May 1.
Bring Me The Horizon, We Came As Romans and Pierce The Veil will open all dates except the New York show. The New York show will be a special concert billed as “An Evening With A Day To Remember” and the band will play songs from their entire catalog. Tickets for all dates of the tour will go on sale later this week. Additional tour dates will be announced in the near future. For more info on tickets, head to the band’s website here.
Decades from now, when we look back on 2010, we will all remember that light bulb moment when into the cultural lexicon came one of life’s great questions: Fuckin’ Magnets, how do they work? (Also worth considering: Fuckin’ Giraffes, why are their necks so long?) At times, it was easy to wonder how this incredibly ridiculous song and video by Insane Clown Posse ever got the green light. But in the end, we were just incredibly grateful that it did.—Trevor Kelley
This Bungles-sampling track, replete with will.i.am’s signature visual tricks, may not have wound up on the Black Eyed Peas latest—landing instead on Nicki’s debut—but the video had the Peas’ frontman’s style written all over it. From pulsating dancers to an MC Escher pencil-sketch of the BEP leader himself, it’s obvious that these two happily went overboard. But then Nicki re-appears in pink latex and we all smile, because you realize that it’s a sight no pricey visual trickery could ever outshine.—Dan Hyman
If you didn’t fall in love with Bruno Mars after watching this heartstring-tugging clip for what was arguably the year’s biggest pop song, then you may not have a heart. Or are lying. Or work security at the Hard Rock Hotel. Whatever the case, the video was magical: Using nothing more that the angelic voice that cuts through “Just The Way You Are” as his weapon, Mars manages to transform a cassette tape into a full-fledged animation studio. Oh, and he also presumably gets the girl.—Jonah Bayer
Sure, this may be essentially the diva equivalent to that far too ubiquitous Red Hot Chili Peppers clip that surfaced a couple years back, but as Ms. Keri gives us her inspired (and surprisingly faithful) takes on Diana, T-Boz and Hova’s lady, you realize that this is one homage that is all heart. It also speaks to one of this medium’s greater truths: That being, that sometimes the best videos are made by those who have spent their entire lives positively obsessing over them.—Trevor Kelley
Oh “Single Ladies,” look at what you have wrought. In 2010, high-energy, single camera video shoots were all the rage, but perhaps no one did this in as arresting of a way as Ciara. Throughout the video for “Ride” the ridiculously-toned Southern pop starlet slowly pops, locks, tweaks and gyrates for us all, but this is no mere spank clip. It’s a bizarrely consuming work of art. If she didn’t make this video, the dude from Aphex Twin probably would have.—Trevor Kelley
