Internet, today, is a popular communication and feedback sharing platform. Digital content is also readily available over the internet. These two phenomena have propelled the electronic interaction among music consumers to new heights. Our study investigates the contribution of electronic word-of-mouth (eWOM) to the sales of music albums. We studied the American music market for 13 consecutive weeks. The Sales data for these weeks was correlated to the eWOM data for the period mentioned before.
