hope-for-haiti-nowAt its current rate of sale, the “Hope For Haiti” benefit album from last week’s television telethon is predicted to be at the top of the Billboard 200 album sales chart tomorrow. Once there, it will mark the first time in the 54-years of the chart’s existence that a digital-only album is king of the hill.

The album includes the performances of Justin Timberlake, Beyoncé, Bruce Springsteen, Jay-Z, Rihanna, Bono and the Edge, and many others who participated musically. According to Reuters, an average of 24 million people watched the entire two-hour special, while an incredible 83 million total U.S. viewers tuned in at various points of the telecast and an additional 5.8 million streamed the special online.

So far, over $62 million has been raised from the event.

By far, the most popular single from the album has been Justin Timberlake and Matt Morris’ haunting duet on Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.” Rolling Stone points out that it “continues to top U.S. iTunes Top Singles chart, beating out Taylor Swift’s “Today Was a Fairytale”; it’s also the lone “Hope For Haiti Now” performance on the iTunes Top 10 songs chart.”
