Grammys Boost Sales of Albums That Don't Need the Help


On Sunday night, the Grammy Awards saw a shift in philosophy for the Grammy voting bloc. Unlike the two previous years, none of this year's Album Of The Year nominees had cumulative sales below the sales threshold of 1 million copies. The Black Eyed Peas' The E.N.D., Beyoncé's I Am... Sasha Fierce, the Dave Matthews Band's Big Whisky And The GrooGrux King, Lady Gaga's The Fame, and the winner, Fearless by Taylor Swift (pictured), were all top-selling albums by big brand-name artists.
