“Grease” was the word last night — and this morning it’s already the No. 5 album on iTunes.
It didn’t take the Fox ensemble cast long to crack the Top 10 on Apple’s music sales platform. As it sits now, “Grease Live! (Music From the Television Event)” trails just Rihanna, Kevin Gates, Adele, and Sia, respectively.
That’s pretty good company, as are the acts that “Grease” is actually ahead of: Justin Bieber, Charlie Puth, Coldplay, twenty one pilots, and Chris Stapleton. Heard of those guys?
Drilling a bit deeper into iTunes stats, the most popular single track from “Grease: Live” may surprise you: It’s “Those Magic Changes” by Jordan Fisher. That’s the ditty the singer/actor’s Doody performs with his acoustic guitar in the diner scene. It brought on some swooning for sure.
Up second as a standalone is “Grease (Is the Word)” by Jessie J, which opened the impressive musical event last night.
“Summer Nights,” “Hopelessly Devoted to You,” “There Are Worse Things I Could Do,” and “You’re the One That I Want” are battling it out for the close third position.
