And The Predictions Are In! Tamar Braxton’s ‘Love & War’ To Sell…

tamar braxton that grape juice And The Predictions Are In! Tamar Braxtons Love & War To Sell...

R&B doesn’t sell.

Thanks to the likes of Tamar Braxton and Robin Thicke, the above has recently been proved to be nothing short of a lie. For, when armed with enough financial and creative backing, R&B albums have no reason not to fare just as well as their Pop counterparts.

Now, in what will hopefully encourage more Urban acts to push for more when releasing LPs, Tamar‘s ‘Love & War’ is on course to bring in sales that will see her elevated to the higher ranks of her genre.

Fed up of being teased by us?

Her numbers below…

Predicted chart position: #2

Predicted first week figure: 105-110k

Winning much?

Benefitting from the audience she continues to reach with all of her television ventures, Tamar’s sales will see her lose out on the #1 spot to Ariana Grande‘s ‘Yours Truly’ which will sell anywhere between 110,000 to 115,000 units- earning it the #1 spot!



With these figures, Tamar can now boast of being the only R&B diva to debut with sales of over 100,000 units in the last year, outperforming critically acclaimed releases by Ciara, Kelly Rowland, Keyshia Cole, Fantasia and Brandy, whose  sales now surpass  30 million units worldwide and 8.62 million in her domestic market, helped in part by her Quadruple Platinum self-titled debut.

Well done Tamar!

    I’m thinking the same. You know no one is really checking or this album. I didn’t even know it was out until TGJ put 472929 banners for it all over.

    FutureCIARA Replied:

    But Lana is still a flop/your still pressed over Ciara, and nobody knows your favs name or who/what she is, Nor the songs from either 2 albums the b**** has released…..

    The girls in Hollywood bash her for her late fashion attire, Thus she refuses to be photographed in public because she cant afford a stylist.

    TV ridicules her for her FLOP SNL performance over a year ago, in 2012

    Venues around the world shade her because of many cancelled dates and cancelled appearances,

    Urban and Suburban America continue to confuse her name with a mexican fast food restaurant, where their tacos aren’t even made with REAL meat.

    And America(The country where it matters) STILL pays her #DUST when it comes to musical ventures.

    Ciara may not be pulling impressive numbers, But her entire 10+ year career is like a dark shady cloud over Lana’s 5- year existence…

    Ciara’s CAREER>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Lana Del Taco – “The girl that wants to go where everybody knows her name”

    Rosie Replied:

    The most delusional and false essay I have ever read on TGJ.
    Lana has had less than 3 cancelled appearances to date.
    Lana has a top 10 hit.
    Lana’s album has outsold Cedric’s discography.

    Anyway congrats to Tamar, I bought the album and I give it a B-, it’s very messy.

    Tamar is a damn good vocalist, I’m happy for her. Oh and congrats to Ariana, I see she’s been reading the Hood of Derion manual, I like her album but it still makes me feel uncomfortable to listen to.

    Good for Tamar and for R&B coming back strong.

    It seemed to me the only person that kept R&B surviving strong was Usher & Beyonce (Unlike Usher; Beyonce never switched lanes and did EDM music but always utilized her true core on every album and that is R&B).

    Also, my girl KESHIA CHANTE is FINALLY coming back!!!!

    It’s a cute little album from what I’ve heard but I doubt 100k people were really checking for it when it had no promo except for a little-watched reality show. Love And War the song fell off a few months ago. I’m betting Vince bought at least 30k. It’ll plummet out of the top 20 next week.
    But anyways, congrats.

    Reply

    T976 Replied:

    You guys just fail to realize that the reality shows she’s been on is what really helped her revive her career. The reality shows were #1 and had more than a million views and followers. So for her to sell 100k in the first week isn’t as shocking as you want to think.

    She promoted her ass off as well, i’ll give her that. I was tired of seeing her everywhere on YouTube.

    To the people saying Vince bought her albums, grow up…
    I just hate to see how other humans want to see their people fail.

    It’s cute how thatgrapejuice is so supportive of Tamar. I think they should have Tamar’s album cover on the right, and Ariana Grande’s on the left.

    To end, I wish both Ariana Grande and Tamar Braxton luck at the top spot next week! Two very good talents.

    There are some things you should know.

    1. TGJ is biased towards Tamar because she pays them to be. David literally works for her, check his twitter.

    2. Vince bought at least 40,000 of those sales the same way he bought copies of the single on itunes but forgot to buy them everywhere else which is why it didn’t chart in the top 50 AFTER it got to number one.

    Fantasia = 2 platinum & 1 gold album.
    Keyshia Cole = 3 platinum & 1 gold album.

    Tamar = a reality show.

    She is a great singer, and I gave her props earlier in this post but I am not here for Tamar stans dragging artists who are way more successful than her. Not here at all.

    A lot of good RNB albums dropped this wk….Tamar,Ariana,John legend,and Jahiem. Its sad that John and Jahiem or only gonna sell 50k -55k when they usually pull in way over a 100k first wk. Besides Jt and robin thicke I’m looking for Chris brown and my baby Trey songz to save RNB for the males.

    Chris Brown is gonna flop. I don’t know why he keeps postponing the inevitable. Trey will flop also unless revamps his image and drops a HUGE single. I have my eyes on August Alsina. He may be a little too hood/ratchet for mainstream though…

    I notice real R&B albums doing much better than urban contemporary R&B albums

    Tamar: over 100k
    Ariana: over 100k
    Keyshia Cole: almost 100k

    compared to
    Ciara: 57k
    Brandy: less than 80k
    Kelly Rowland: less than 80k

    Congrats to Ariana on her feature #1 album, very well deserved. I stan for the artist she can become and she’s not letting me down. Tattooed Heart, Honeymoon Avenue, Daydreamin, You’ll Never Know were my favorites off the album. Tamar Braxton’s album was solid too! She needs to work on her live vocals but she’s a breathe of fresh air to R&B. Shame K.Michelle’s album did do as well, it was solid too. With John Legend and Mariah coming soon, this is turning out to be a good year in R&B

    I’ve been a fan of Tamar since her self-titled debut (which is really good). No bandwagon here. I’m buying “Love And War” tomorrow. However, please don’t use Tamar’s CURRENT sales to shade Brandy.

    “Two Eleven” remains an impeccable album. I’m still bumpin’ it.

    And Ariana doesn’t have a R&B bone in her body. Her contemporaries are Katy Perry, Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, and Demi. Not the people you mentioned. She just has a better voice than theirs…she’s still pop though.

    Rihanna ain’t no damn queen of pop. She’s the queen of puppet mastered studio singing non talent blow up dolls who only exist to make a cheap buck for the songwriter who submitted a demo to Def Jam or Roc Nation. Clearly they don’t have any faith that she’s good to last, which is why they keep Rita in the wings, waiting for the first sign of rigor mortis to set in with Rihanna so that she can be quickly replaced.

    And real talk, RIta is better. She’s younger, prettier and has a much, much better voice than Rihanna.

    I’ve been waiting for Rihanna to be replaced since 2005. Hasn’t & WON’T happen. And Rita most certainly won’t be her replacement. Americans (and every other country outside of UK-who BARELY cares) could care less about her.

    rihanna is getting bigger and beyonce is decreasing. Replied:

    Keeping Rita in the wings? Yet the public remain unbothered and she cannot sell records outside the uk

    Younger – Rita looks about 26 and prolly really 30

    Prettier – Short, fat and manly does not equate American standard beauty. At least Rih is tall and slim

    Better voice – Ok, well she can be a back up singer on teh next leg of Rih’ s sell out diamond tour.

    b**** sit down. Rita Whora is not better than Rihanna. Rita’s voice is basic,she’s not cute and a Rihanna wannabe. Where is her damn impact in the USA first??

    AdamMonster Replied:

    How is RIta supposed to sell albums outside of the UK when it’s the only region her album has been released thus far? And she SLAYED it! In the meantime, Rita (without a US release) has also SLAYED the US with high end endorsements and magazine covers that pretty much overshadow Rihanna in that area, so much so that Rita came in at the No. 1 spot on People With Money’s top 10 highest-paid singers for 2013 with an estimated $46 million in combined earnings. No. 1, so that would mean ahead of Rihanna. Don’t take my word for it, tho. Google it!

    I don’t care about your silly and exaggerated claims of how old Rita looks to you. The reality is that she’s 22, and younger than Rihanna. But I guess anyone would look 30 compared to a 25 year old woman who goes out of her way to resemble an overgrown 7th grader. I’d rather look like an adult than a kid.

    Yes, prettier. Rita is nowhere near fat. LMAO! What’s the matter with you, do you need lasik surgery or something? And at 5’5, she’s nowhere near “short” either. At least not for a woman. Yeah, we gonna take up a collection to get you some bifocals at least, because the comments you’ve made here make you look either blind or just stupid. Rihanna may be tall and thin, but she also has a pudgy nose, fat lips, a big head and isn’t a natural beauty. She better hope she keeps that figure, because other than thinness she doesn’t have much else to fall back on in the looks department. Without makeup she tends to favor Skeletor.

    I’m glad you can concede to the obvious truth that Rita can literally sing circles around Rihanna (like that’s hard), but she has better things to do than to follow studio singer Rihanna to try and save her tragic vocals on her train wreck of a tour that at least check wasn’t even in the years top 10 grossing. Why would Rita wanna be a back up singer on a mediocre selling tour, when she’s #1 in the UK, is busy owing the US in terms of endorsements and covers and is the years top earner? No.

    Thank you. “Tumblr artist/flop/unknown/joke” my ass. If so then why did she outsell literally every b**** in the game’s last album except for Tranny (who sold 1/3 of her total first week) and Adele?
    The real tumblr artists are Marina and Borde. Marina has a huge tumblr base but her album has only sold 66k in the US. Borde and her hit “Locals” are the Anglophone Gotye, one huge faux-indie single, album barely goes gold/sells 2-3 million than falls of the face of the Earth. Ghetto difference is that Somebody That I Used To Know went #1 literally everywhere whereas Locals is exactly that.

    But Lana is still a flop, and nobody knows her name or who she is, Nor the songs from either 2 albums the b**** has released…..

    The girls in Hollywood bash her for her late fashion attire, Thus she refuses to be photographed in public because she cant afford a stylist.

    TV ridicules her for her FLOP SNL performance over a year ago, in 2012

    Venues around the world shade her because of many cancelled dates and cancelled appearances,

    Urban and Suburban America continue to confuse her name with a mexican fast food restaurant, where their tacos aren’t even made with REAL meat.

    And America(The country where it matters) STILL pays her #DUST when it comes to musical ventures.

    Ciara may not be pulling impressive numbers, But her entire 10+ year career is like a dark shady cloud over Lana’s 5- year existence…

    All of that can apply to Cedric though too.

    No one outside of 106 & Park is checking for Cedric. Born To Die has officially outsold his discography worldwide. Deal.

    Can’t help but cackle at all of these Vince purchasing the album allegations.

    You all do realize that quality music eventually speaks for itself right? The album doesn’t have a big budget of production but still f****** works well. It’s a very solid R&B release and Tamar deserves the success..

    Gives her much more bragging right to shade the girls she’s outselling. This success will surely usher in a new album since people will pay her more attention.

    How is this evidence R&B can sell? We’ve had a few R&B artists hit up toward 100k before in the past few years.

    It’s usually hovering around 70k, does that 30k really make that much of a difference? I personally don’t think it does. Not like people care when it’s 70k instead of 40k. “winning”… no.

    If R&B can maintain legs, that’s how we know R&B can sell. Pop has legs. People check for pop. They don’t check for R&B like they do pop.

    Anyhoo, I need to pick her album up, never heard of the other chick but her potentially being #1 makes me want to check her out.

    Don’t like Tamar as a person, but she’s talented.

    b**** I Can't Even Spell Welfare Replied:

    I agree with you 100%. A 30K difference in sales says absolutely NOTHING about the overall sales of R & B album sales.

    Mainstream R&B is still in the very same positions its been in. Period. I say this as a die hard R&B fan.

    The fact that people are trying to make distinctions between albums that sale 70-80 thousand vs. 100,000+ is laughable. Guess what? Those are the SAME numbers in the end.
