Super Bowl: Missy Elliot Record Sales Jump 1,000 Percent

Project Casting

Missy Elliott’s critically acclaimed guest appearance during Katy Perry’s Super Bowl halftime show is translating into MONEY.

According to sources, sales for Missy Elliott’s music collection has increased by 1,000 percent. In less than one week more than 70,000 downloads for Missy Elliot records have been sold.

Elliott performed a medley of three tunes during Perry’s halftime spectacular: “Get Ur Freak On,” “Work It” and “Lose Control.” They are each aiming to sell around 15,000 to 20,000 downloads for the week. In the previous week, each sold around 1,000 downloads, according to Nielsen. “Work It” looks to be the halftime show’s biggest seller, as it may shift around 20,000 downloads.

Meanwhile, Katy Perry’s biggest-selling song of the week could be “Roar,” which opened the show, as it may sell around 17,000.

Perry’s collected songs could sell over 100,000 — gaining perhaps 75 percent compared to the previous week (57,000).
