I Know Everything - Chapter 418
Chapter 418: Hello, does your face hurt?
Some things were just very stunning.
It was like a turning point or escaping from the jaws of death.
That feeling of unexpected results was really indescribable.
Everyone was stunned when they heard Shui Qianyu.
Including Chen Huan.
He thought it may be actually not that good this time.
The songs he wrote for Comeback were those that fit the older people and it was the same for the other songs he bought as the style didn’t change much.
Perhaps the young crowd would be less inclined to listen to the album.
As some comments said, the young people preferred Meteor Girls.
Young people also had the most presence online.
Chen Huan already thought why ‘Comeback’ sales weren’t as good.
But then why ‘Life’s Only Love’ sold so well when it was also aimed at the older populace? After all, the album hadn’t fallout of the top 5 album sales of the three major music platforms even after ten months passed.
The reason was simple.
Zhao Changshou’s personality attracted people.
And the love story between him and his wife moved a lot of people.
It wasn’t only middle aged people or seniors as many young girls were also moved.
So most who bought the album online were them.
Moreover, the Gala also boosted it.
It wasn’t certain that participating in the Gala would boost the sales but there were often examples of that happening.
So Chen Huan understood that ‘Comeback’ was different from ‘Life’s Only Love’.
Shui Qianyu said that 102,563 hard copies were sold!
What was going on?!
Everyone was stunned.
Everyone knew that before today that the best single day selling for hard copies in the past ten years was the 83,300 sold by ‘Life’s Only Love’.
Prior to ‘Life’s Only Love’ and in the past ten years, the best that Tang Yuan, Su Mo, Xu Pingdeng etc… hadn’t sold more than 20k in a day.
Everyone thought that although the industry was recovering, that terrifying sales record would still not be broken for the next two or three years.
But then a year hadn’t passed yet before it was broken and it was even more than 100k!
Then this first day sales record could probably be there for the next 15 years!
The best first day sales record!
Lei Daxuan trembling hands took hold of Shui Qianyu’s phone and it was the date released by the Album Association and the number 102,563 copies was bright red at the first place.
Lei Daxuan reread five times before confirming he didn’t read it wrong.
The title also wrote ‘Record-breaking sales wins to first spot!’, which also showed there was no input error.
“We did it!”
Shui Qingshan slammed the table and laughed loudly.
What the other didn’t notice was there was a hint of relief in his laugh.
Many things were easy to overlook when happy.
Such a record-breaking result alone was enough for ‘Comeback’ to make a sizable contribution to the history of music no matter what the sales tomorrow were.
No one would mention that this album was a failure by Lu Xiaofeng.
If more than 100k hard copies sold for the album on the first day was a failure, then all the other albums were trash in the past ten years!
Who would dare to say that?
Wasn’t it akin to offending everyone who did an album or singers? It was like the entire music industry.
Chen Huan and co wasn’t the only one who saw that data.
Almost all people who cared about the music industry and ‘Comeback’ were waiting for the results of the first day hard copies sales.
If they also flunked at hard copies sales, they could officially announce that ‘Comeback’ was just a good album at best.
It would be something to be bragged about by others but a stain for someone like Lu Xiaofeng.
If the first day sales were great, ‘Comeback’ would be able to wash away their infamy.
But even the most optimistic person about ‘Comeback’ didn’t expect it to actually sell 102,563 hard copies on the first day.
The internet erupted.
“Yo, that Trash Can who just ranted, there’s also that Truth on Top, come out! Bow to Sister Xiaofeng’s greatness!”
“Tremble, you trashes! Did you just say ‘Comeback’ wasn’t good? Look at the sales! Who can do it?!”
“Online sales have never been the most important and a big album like ‘Comeback’ can only push to holiness by hard copies sales!”
“Hahaha, those bastards that were talking shit, come out! Keep talking shit! Are you embarrassed yet?”
“I knew the people had discerning eyes, they finally did their move! Every song in ‘Comeback’ is good, it would be weird if it wasn’t liked!”
“No matter how it was said, those people who insulted and slandered Sister Xiaofeng finally got a slap to the face!”
“Exactly! Moreover, this faceslape came not even after 24 hours has passed, just a few hours! So satisfying!”
“If I was them, I would be too ashamed to go out today!”
This was how things went.
Those trolls on the internet were just going crazy a few hours ago and got face slapped just a few hours later, it was so humiliating that they should just go hide to their grandma’s house.
Ordinary people were still alright as they could pretend to not be there and nobody would remember after the matter had passed and they could continue their mischief later.
But those celebrities on the internet couldn’t do that.
Those little celebrities could also delete their comments and also pretend to not be there.
But those who were very famous like Trash Can and Truth on Top with millions and millions of followers couldn’t escape from it.
Just before, they were still enthusiastically responding to those people who were gloating with them.
Then when the Album Association’s stats came out, they immediately couldn’t be found anymore and wouldn’t come out no matter how much the netizens were calling them out.
The most pitiful thing was that they didn’t dare to delete their posts as it would be akin admitting their loss and would receive even more ridicule.
They felt really aggrieved in their hearts.
It should be online sales doing better than hard copies but why was it the other way around this time?
Who could have thought that ‘Comeback’ would be sold more than 100k hard copies?
Would Lu Xiaofeng never drop down?
Where was the reason for that!?
