Per still rules the charts

Written by tevensso on August 31, 2003 to .

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


Congrats, King of The Charts.

You keep saying the same thing about the sales all over again...Haven’t they improved one bit?!
Both the album and the single have held the #1 slots forever but the sale figures remain the same...(?)

Congrats Per... let’s hope single 2 and the DVD do just as well for you.....

Well, I guess we could give you fake numbers... Or report the official ones. I dunno?
