Tupac Hologram Prompts Spike In Sales
Tupac's albums and singles see a sales bump in the weeks following his hologram appearance at Coachella.
Following Tupac’s appearance as a hologram at the Coachella 2012 festival, sales have spiked for the late rapper.
According to Billboard.biz, his performance during Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg’s headlining set prompted a re-entry for his Greatest Hits album on the Billboard 200 where his album returns at No. 129 with 4,000 copies sold, a 571 percent increase over the prior week. It’s the first time the LP has made it onto the chart since 2000.
Additionally, his albums All Eyez on Me and Me Against the World also saw a sales bump, moving 2,000 and 1,000 units, respectively.
His tracks “Hail Mary” and “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted,” both of which were performed at Coachella, had increased sales as well. The former cut moved 13,000 downloads last week for a 1,530 percent sales increase, while the latter sold 9,000 units.
