This is very interesting, especially since Rihanna's new album sold 238,000 copies in it's first week of release.
Maybe people are tired of Alicia going around like she's the best thing to hit music since Michael Jackson.
Maybe they've realized that Alicia has a few good songs on her albums, but overall, they aren't all that since the first one.
Maybe they're pissed that she stole that woman's husband, married him and had a baby with him.
Either way, there's a reason Alicia Key's isn't gettin' bigger and better - forget about deafer!

Naturally, then, all eyes are on how the LP fares in the singer’s biggest market – the US. And now, with the help of Hits Daily Double, we’re able to provide a clearer picture of how the album is selling on home soil.

150,000 – 175,000
While commendable given the current sales climate, the numbers are a marked decrease from the 417,000 copies Keys’ last album ‘The Element Of Freedom’ opened with in 2009. In fact, should the project open with sales in the said region, it would serve as the 31 year old’s lowest selling debut (for a traditional release) – ever. For, even her first effort ‘Songs In A Minor’ premiered with sales of 236,000 in 2001.
