The October 7, 2008 release of WOW Hits 2009 became RIAA certified gold for sales in excess of 250,000 units of the double-disc CD just weeks after its release. Well on its way to platinum status, WOW Hits 2009 continues to see a significant sales increase over the WOW Hits 2008 release, despite a declining market and all-time low in recorded music sales, further proving the strength and staying power of the WOW brand. The strong artist and song list, premium retail positioning, standout online presence and aggressive price-point have helped contribute to the success of WOW Hits 2009.

In addition, WOW Gospel 2009 recently released on January 27, along with several other new WOW projects slated for release this year including WOW Essentials and WOW Gospel Essentials.

Created through a partnership between EMI CMG, Provident Music Group, and Word Entertainment, the WOW Hits 2009 compilation is part of the multi-platinum WOW brand series. The marketing and distribution of WOW projects is shared among the companies, with Word leading efforts for WOW Hits 2009.
