The Numbers Are In: Big Sean & Jhene Aiko’s ‘Twenty88’ Sold…

Hip Hop Duo's Self-Titled Debut Album Greeted With Lukewarm Numbers

Jhene-and-Big-Sean-900x600-thatgrapejuice-twenty88 first week sales

Comprised of two of Urban music’s brighest gems, rapper Big Sean and songstress Jhene Aiko, hip hop group Twenty88 dropped a bombshell on April Fools day when they released their debut project (with very little warning).

Sending fans into swift frenzy, news of the project was greeted with high anticipation.  However, some of that excitement may have cooled once word got out it was only available via Tidal for the first three days of its availability.  Leading into a first week sales projection of 35,000-40,000 units moved, fans of the duo were sure those numbers would rise once it was granted “wide-release status” on April 4th.

Fortunately, rise they did.  Unfortunately, not by much:

The Predictions Are In: Big Sean & Jhene Aiko’s ‘Twenty88’ Is Set To Sell…

twenty88_2016-Mar-27-thatgrapejuice-jhene-big sean

Big Sean and Jhene Aiko had jaws dropping just this time last week when they dropped the surprise announcement of their joint EP ‘Twenty88.’

Conveniently due on digital shelves April 1st, many fans originally perceived the announcement as an April Fool’s joke.  Indeed, while a Flaunt magazine spread and live performance on ‘Kimmel’ later disproved such, the effort’s minimal promotional push almost looked poise to see the real joke fall on Sean and Aiko.  Add to this a Tidal-only streaming availability (until April 4th), the project had an unquestionable uphill battle from day 1.

Yet, as the two have proven with their solo efforts, the absence of hit singles and promo is by no means indicative of failure.  And, if their predicted first week sales are anything to go by, they’re set to prove that point yet again…

Stream: Big Sean & Jhene Aiko – ‘Twenty88’

twenty88_2016-Mar-27-thatgrapejuice-jhene-big sean

Eight tracks make up the body of work that is Jhene Aiko and Big Sean‘s joint album ‘Twenty 88‘….and they’re now available to stream right here on TGJ!

Packaged with a ‘Parental Advisory’ sticker , the release soars in and out of 90s R&B and experimental Rock and offers Hip-Hop fans a romantic alternative to what Aiko says she is tired of listening to.

Music now doesn’t really cater to the feelings of a real relationship.It’s all about trapping and bragging. I feel like this project is something that’s needed right now…Especially a whole project, is just good for people to see. That duality is a perfect combination.

Ready to give it a listen before it reaches Apple Music next week?
