“We normally have to go through the album in each country,” said Lena Midtveit, head of BMG Norway to Absolutt Underholdning. “Sometimes they want a new music video, another selection or a new music video, but the Germans wanted it as it was.”
Nilsen’s popularity is increasing and at amazon.de his debut album is the most sold for the time being.
Germany has the third largest record market in the world.
Nilsen’s album is also sold at other sites such as the British Play.com, but the album is so far not one of the best selling. The debut album is currently not being sold at the American and the British amazon.com.
