Per still rules the charts
STOCKHOLM – After 10 amazing weeks Per Gessle’s hit album, “Mazarin”, is still at the #1 spot in Sweden. It has to date sold triple platinum (more than 180,000 units), and is reportedly closing in on quadruple. The first single “Här kommer alla känslorna” has been a #1 hit for 8 weeks, and consequently they both have been #1 together during those 8 weeks. That too is a record in itself. “Känslorna” has now sold gold (15,000 units). Per’s hope is to stay #1 at least until Christmas, he said jokingly in Aftonbladet.
The only Swedish album that has sold this much during the last few years is Kent’s “Vapen & ammunition”, which has sold five times platinum, but that is since April 2002.
Editor’s Note: TDR has learned that tickets are still available (as of September 1st) for Per’s upcoming shows in Oslo and Helsinki. – LEO
