‘The X Factor’ USA notes: Emblem3’s ‘Nothing to Lose’; Fifth Harmony’s Disney gig

The latest -Emblem3 First-week sales – It really is not that often that we have an opportunity to really start off an “X Factor” notes article by talking about album sales, mostly because there are so few artists out there with full-length albums (especially if you go back and look at the first go-around for the show).

So how did Emblem3 do with the launch of their “Nothing to Lose”? In an age where many music fans simply buy individual singles online (especially young people), it did pretty well. The album debuted at #7 this week on the Billboard 200 chart, and with 46,000 albums sold. This is the biggest sales figure for any artist who has come on the show to date, and it is more than double the 17,000 sold by season 2 champ Tate Stevens.

The group has found some radio success with their first single “Chloe (You’re the One I Want),” and we imagine that there will be another one hitting the airwaves soon enough. Continuing to build up their radio base and touring will really be the one to get these sales figures up in the weeks ahead, as most of the people who purchased this album so far are likely the diehard fans.

Fifth Harmony’s Disney gig – You may have known about this already, but given that it is one of the group’s bigger performances on the schedule, it’s worth noting again that on Sunday at 10:30 a.m. Pacific time in Anaheim, you can see the group give a brief performance at the D23 Expo.

This whole event is basically Comic-Con for Disney fans, and there are some big reveals at the event if you are a fan of anything else from the House of Mouse. Definitely worth looking into.
