Music sales are up!; Beyonce tops charts; More Wugazi


Thanks in part to Adele’s runaway smash “21,” album sales are up for the first time since 2004. (Kyle Gustafson/For The Washington Post)
- Album sales are up 1% in the first half of 2011. It’s not a big number, but it’s the first increase in overall sales since 2004. Maybe it’s because it costs more to by a Slurpee than the entire Lady Gaga album on Amazon. Maybe it’s because Adele is just that beloved.

- Speaking of sales, Beyonce predictably topped this week’s Billboard charts, moving 310,000 copies of her new album, “4.” It’s her worst sales debut, though. Fitting for her worst album.

- Hey, there’s more Wugazi .

- “This game 2 fake I quite (sic) rap after this year.” Say it ain’t so, Waka!

- Noel Gallagher announced details of two upcoming albums at a London press conference.
