POSSIBLY THE MOST CONVOLUTED OPENING SENTENCE IN THE HISTORY OF WRITING: We had about six goes at this opening to a Reuters/Billboard report before we could feel confident trying to work out what they meant:

"For the first time in recent memory the Hot 100 Singles Sales chart is populated by more than a handful of CD singles from artists that are familiar to most music fans. "

So... that's "This week for the first time in ages, there's more than a couple of people you've actually heard of in the Hot 100", then?

Buried down the story is an interesting little stat: downloads of Beyonce's Naughty Girl and Jessica Simpson's Take My Breath Away were higher than actual, physical sales of CDs and vinyl.
