Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings

Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings have come a long way since their humble beginnings nearly a decade ago. On April 6, 2010, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings marked history with the release of their fourth album, I Learned the Hard Way. After selling a mere 100,000 copies of their previous album, 100 Days, 100 Nights, since its release in 2007, the band went on to move 23,000 copies of I Learned the Hard Way in the first week putting the album at #15 on the Billboard 200. And, after a few weeks on the shelves of record stores around the world, the album continued to climb the Billboard charts hitting at #2 for Independent albums and #6 for R&B/Hip-Hop albums. However, sales didn't stop there.
