In the entertainment world, there is no such thing as bad press.
According to reports, Solange’s digital music sales have majorly increased after the infamous elevator incident at the Met Gala. Nielsen SoundScan Data, ending the week of May 18, showed that the singer’s sales were at 2,000 for the week…up from the prior week’s total track sales of 600.
Making headlines has made the violent songstress a popular figure according to the public. Ironically, the bad press didn’t have the same effect for Jay and Bey, who are co-headlining a tour this Summer. Since the video was leaked, the price of their concert tickets dropped 13.5 percent. Before the video was released, the average price was $306.22. Now the price is down to $264.73.
Hopefully, ticket sales will pick up for them.
What do you think? Did the elevator controversy turn you off from Jay Z and Beyonce and make you more interested in Solange?
