The Voice, Australia’s Music Chart Road Kill Revealed

The Voice gave this week’s Australian chart a number of firsts and they were all bad. Never before have so many songs debuted one week and disappeared the next.

So what happened? Two weeks ago, the finale of The Voice drove sales. Last week, with no TV show and no viewers, no-one cared. The results – a disaster.

Last week, The Voice winner Karise Eden debuted at number one with Stay With Me Baby. It sold 54,000 units. This week it sold 2,800.

Her one song that remained in the Top 10 was ‘You Don’t Want Me’. It stayed in the Top 5 with 14,400 sales after selling 27,100 last week.

Earlier today, Gavin Ryan from Australian-Charts.com reported the disaster as it was about to unfold. 22 songs departing the Top 100 this week were songs from The Voice.

Karise Eden ‘Stay With Me Baby’ registered the biggest drop ever in Australian chart history, dropping from no. 1 to no. 54. ‘I Was Your Girl’, her no.3 debut last week, dropped right out of the Top 100. That had happened only once before in ARIA history for someone called Francesca (I haven’t heard of her either).

The Voice runner-up Darren Percival went from a no. 8 debut with ‘Damage Down’ to oblivion outside the Top 100.

The Karise Eden album ‘My Journey’ did debut at no. 1 with sales of 35,000. That was after 3 days of sales and it does make it the fastest selling album of the year. That equals the first week debut by Casey Donovan but it is still a long way behind first week Australian Idol contestant figures for Guy Sebastian (160,000) and Shannon Noll (131,000).

So what happened to songs from The Voice? Well, the show went off the air … and so did the interest.
