Les Miserables Soundtrack Hits The Billboard Charts, Buy It Now For $5
Not only is the soundtrack for director Tom Hooper's adaptation of Les Miserables doing well on the charts, you can also now pick up a copy of your own for a very, very low price.
Billboard.com has announced their latest numbers and have found that the soundtrack for the musical is now number one on the Soundtracks chart and ranks all the way at number 33 on the overall Billboard Top 200. The album came out on December 21st, four days before the theatrical debut of the film, and while the Nielsen SoundScan tracking week ended on Sunday December 23rd, statistics show that 43,000 units were sold in just the first three days (and one can imagine that the number has gone way up since people have actually been able to see the feature). As for singles, the rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream" has been the biggest solo track seller, with over 20,000 copies downloaded.
60% of sales were digital, and it's easy to understand why. While buying all of the songs individually, at 99 cents per track, would run you about $19.80, Amazon is currently selling the Les Miserables soundtrack for only $5.00 (or just 25 cents per song). No promotion code is needed, but I'd recommend hitting it up soon before the deal disappears.
The Les Miserables soundtrack features recordings from all of the film's stars, including Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe, Sacha Baron Cohen, Helena Bonham Carter, Eddie Redmayne, Samantha Barks, and more.
