Destiny's Child super album surge

Destiny's Child saw a spike in sales after their Super Bowl performance

Destiny's Child album sales have rocketed by 600 per cent following their explosive reunion at the Super Bowl.

Beyonce, who performed eight songs and reunited with the band during the half time show at the Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans at the weekend, saw her own digital album sales jump 230 per cent, industry sources told The Hollywood Reporter.

Destiny's Child's massive increase is also due to sales of the trio's brand new Love Songs compilation, which was released last Tuesday, and their new track Nuclear.

The album sales increases are also aided by discount prices offered by both the iTunes and Amazon MP3 stores.

In terms of digital song sales, Beyonce's grew by an estimated 85 percent while Destiny Child's rose by over 300 per cent.

Beyonce's biggest selling song of the week was Halo, which was the finale of her Super Bowl set.

But the biggest Destiny's Child song of the week is apparently Say My Name which was not part of the medley they performed.

Trust your intuition about a career matter. If you're not happy in your current field, it's time to change direction. To get a foothold in another industry, you will have to get training. Enrol in a course that will give you a license or certificate. It may take months or even years to reach your goal, but there is no time like the present. Any goal worth attaining involves personal sacrifice. Stop waiting for a miracle to occur. Take charge of your destiny.More
