Update: The voting deadline for this week’s “The Voice” has arrived, and it brings with it news that Matt McAndrew has secured an iTunes multiplier bonus.
McAndrew scores the boost due to the fact that his cover of “Take Me to Church” held a top ten iTunes single sales chart position at the close of voting. It is currently listed at #5 on the all-genre chart.
At the close of voting, the approximate positions were as follows:
5) Matt McAndrew – Team Adam – Take Me to Church
11) Craig Wayne Boyd – Team Blake – You Look So Good in Love
12) Damien – Team Adam – He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother
24) Chris Jamison – Team Adam – Jealous
34) Taylor John Williams – Team Gwen – If
37) Luke Wade – Team Pharrell – Thinking Out Loud
42) Anita Antoinette – Team Gwen – Redemption Song
60) DaNica Shirey – Team Pharrell – Creep
92) Jessie Pitts – Team Blake – Don’t You Worry Child
112) Reagan James – Team Blake – It Ain’t Over ‘Til It’s Over
121) Ryan Sill – Team Gwen – Ordinary World
348) Sugar Joans – Take Me to the River
Matt McAndrew continues to resonate with iTunes buyers, and that commercial appeal will very likely land the Team Adam member an iTunes multiplier bonus this week.
By 1:15AM ET, which came just fifteen minutes after Monday’s top twelve edition of “The Voice” aired on the west coast, McAndrew’s cover of “Take Me to Church” was already in the top ten on the iTunes all-genre single sales chart.
As long as it can retain that position through the close of voting–and there is no reason to believe it will not–it will secure the contestant the season’s first such multiplier bonus.
Closest behind McAndrew is fellow Team Adam member Damien. His “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother” is up to #20 on the single sales chart.
Team Blake standout Craig Wayne Boyd follows at #23 with “You Look So Good in Love,” while Taylor John Williams’ “If” gives Team Gwen representation at #46.
49) Chris Jamison – Team Adam – Jealous
