This week, for the second week in a row, the compilation album Faith Map (信心地圖) by a collective of singers calling themselves New Artist Family (新藝人家族), holds the top position in the G-Music album charts. (The chart for September 4 to 10 is here, but in Chinese).
The album returns to the top spot - it also held that position last month (see this earlier post). Clearly many people are buying the album as a gesture of support for the victims of the recent typhoon in Taiwan. Album sale proceeds will go to help reconstruction efforts in the affected areas. Various benefit concerts by singers connected with the New Family of Artists are also helping boost sales.
Also notable in this week's charts - Jolin and Butterfly are STILL in the top ten. The album has now being charting a phenomenal 24 weeks- that's almost 6 months. Clearly when the 2009 music awards circuit starts up Jolin is going to be very hard to beat.
