His most recent release, “Awaken, My Love!” jumps back on at No. 45 with 12,000 equivalent album units earned (up 156 percent), with traditional album sales comprising 5,000 of that sum (up 268 percent). Because the Internet returns to the list at No. 61 (10,000 units; up 178 percent, with 3,000 in sales; up 681 percent) while Camp comes back on at No. 197 (5,000 units; up 174 percent, with 2,000 in sales; up 497 percent).
