Solange encounters dramatic spike in sales after Jay Z fight...

This week, Solange saw a 300% increase in her sales after she served Jay Z with an elevator smackdown. It was also a golden opportunity for her to drop an album because it's highly unlikely she will encounter this much publicity for a second time, at least not in this lifetime.

According to Nielsen SoundScan data obtained by HipHopDX, her digital sales were up to 2,000 in the week following the highly publicised fight. She snagged 600 digital sales in the week prior to the argument inside a hotel elevator. It's safe to say we can't judge sales by artistic merit, although Solange's music is pretty good. It's just a shame she had to act buck-wild for her music to get some recognition.
