Redfoo Sales Get Ridiculous, Delta Laughs All The Way To The Bank

If you thought Redfoo’s disastrous 144 sales debut was ridiculous last week well then this week it gets even worse. The man who handed out the critiques on Australia’s The X Factor sold just 51 copies of his ‘Party Rock Mansion’ in week two.

Redfoo ‘Party Rock Mansion’ sold just 51 copies nationally across Australia in its second week with 23 digital sales meaning the majority of those pathetic sales (the other 28 copies) went to fans who demanded the higher quality tones of Redfoo on high definition CD.

Last week the dulcet tones of the “superstar” reality TV show judge’s debut album generated a grand total of 144 sales with 81 digital sales and a grand total of 63 fans taking the effort to buy the CD in stores.

After two weeks on sales Redfoo’s ‘Party Rock Mansion’ has sold a grand total 91 CDs, something contestants on this ‘The X Factor’ season can now take great pleasure in savouring.

The reality music show is dead but don’t feel sorry for Redfoo. He was paid well. He won’t starve. His performance fee will take care of that. But anyone contemplating entering a reality TV music show should be very aware of the same warning we gave when Australian Idol started all those years ago … these shows are TV shows. They are designed to deliver TV ratings, not music sales. Win or lose it does not matter. You are irrelevant. The contestant is the puppet in the show. Next time you bump into Delta Goodrem ask her what she was paid … then shudder.

Redfoo’s sales reflect Redfoo’s talent. Delta’s pay packet reflects Delta’s ratings power. Never think these shows are about you. They never are.
