Although it's slated to hit the Billboard album charts at #2, Brandy's latest effort didn't fair nearly as well as her previous efforts. I guess 70K is a respectable number considering the fact that so many people buy their music for free from download websites.
I think the fact that record execs purposely chose to release during a week that there would be no R&B competition was very smart, but saddening at the same time considering she didn't break 100,000.
Personally, I haven't dug Brandy since she quit Rodney Jerkins, but I also think it's karma and until she acknowledges her brother from another mother (Rapper, C-Dove), instead of saying, "I only have one brother!" I think the karma gods will kick her a$$ consistently.
Now, with a day’s sales under its belt, the first projections for the set have been released. And it looks like Ms. Norwood is on course for a high placing on the tally.
65,000 – 70,000
Country star James Aldean is presently in the lead with his LP ‘Broken Bow’. The LP is set to open with blockbuster sales of 385-410k.
