NZ Musician – Fat Freddys Drop

NZ Musician

Comment on the success of Fat Freddy's drop, especially given they are independantly released. 60000 albums without releasing a single or video! 

3. FFD's album is now 6X platinum – that means they've sold 90,000 albums (platinum = 15,000 copies sold). By the end of last year they had sold 60,000 with no single or video. Since releasing Wandering Eye as a radio-edit/CD single/video, they've sold another 30,000 albums. Bic Runga's latest is 3x platinum, and the latest discs from Eminem, Coldplay and Black Eyed Peas are 4x platinum.
