Coachella hologram spurs Tupac sales
Sales of late rapper Tupac Shakur's music jumped significantly in the wake of his virtual appearance at the Coachella Festival.
Billboard reports that his 1998 Greatest Hits album saw an 571% increase in sales with 4,000 copies sold after footage of a hologram of the MC performing during Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg's headlining sets went viral.
His albums All Eyez On Me and Me Against the World also saw gains, as did the two songs performed by the hologram: "Hail Mary" and "2 Of Amerikaz Most Wanted" (with Snoop) and his Billboard Hot 100 number one hit "California Love."
There have been reports that Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg are in talks to take the hologram on tour, but Dre sought to dispell the rumours during Coachella's second weekend. “It was strictly for Coachella. Get it right,” he said in a video statement. “If a tour happens, we’ll see.”
