Glee cast set to overtake Elvis

Who would have guessed when Glee debuted to audiences in the US in May 2009 that by Christmas 2010, they’d already have topped The Beatles 71 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and only be 6 away from Elvis record with 108. 

To date, their cover of Journey’s Don’t Stop Believin’ has amassed more than a million sales while this seasons hit has been Teenage Dream, topping close to 300,000 copies already and beating the first week sales of DSB by 214,000 to 177,000

With another guaranteed season and a half, one would expect that the Glee cast are going to firmly place themselves firmly out of reach of anyone else wanting to breach the record.

And with the constant talk of the demise of the record business, Sony Music must be very happy with this result.
