Glen Campbell's death last week sparked an increase in his music sales and Twitter followers, according to news reports.

Nielsen Music reported that Campbell's digital album sales rose 4,286 percent, while his digital track sales increased 2,640 percent, The New York Post reports.

Campbell, 81, died Aug. 8 from Alzheimer's disease.

During his career, he sold 45 million records worldwide — accumulating 12 gold albums, four platinum albums, and one double-platinum disc. He also won four Grammy Awards.

In addition, Campbell's number of airplay spins rose 450 percent over the week, Nielsen reported, including 8.8 million video and audio streams of "Rhinestone Cowboy."

The figure represented 12 percent of that overall growth, the Post reports.

Campbell received two Grammy nominations for "Rhinestone Cowboy" in 1975.

On Twitter, Campbell picked up 4,701 new followers, the Post reports, up 9,300 percent from the prior week.
