The Numbers Are In: Maxwell’s ‘blackSUMMERS’night’ Sold…

final numbers thatgrapejuice maxwell

Much to the delight of his diehard fans, Maxwell kicked off the month of July with the release of his long-awaited sixth album, ‘blackSUMMERS’night’ (his first in nearly 7 years).

The second in a trilogy of projects of the same name (different emphases), part 2 of ‘BSN’ was launched on the back of the #1 Adult R&B single ‘Lake by the Ocean’ and a number of other critically acclaimed cuts to support it.  However, while critics have sung the album’s praises, the commercial response hasn’t exactly been singing a similar tune.

Initial reports indicated the first week sales of part 2 of the trio of albums was on track to land somewhere in the 58,000-68,000 range.  If true, that would barely be a fifth of its predecessor’s first week figures.  Now, with the Nielsen tracking week officially over, tuck in below to see how close (or far) industry analysts’ predictions were to the final figure:

Maxwell-blackSUMMERSnight-640x641-thatgrapejuice

Fans of Grammy winning crooner Maxwell weren’t exactly pleased when reports surfaced his new album, ‘blackSUMMERS’night,’ was expected to see first week sales that were 75% less than the inaugural numbers of its predecessor.

However, revised reports may give M’s biggest supporters a reason to smile as industry analysts are lending refreshed stats that will give the singer a leg up on the competition.

Curious to see where he’ll land among next week’s expected top sellers Drake, Beyonce, and Blink 182?  Tuck in below to find out:

The Predictions Are In: Maxwell’s ‘blackSUMMERS’night’ Set To Sell…

Singer/Songwriter Misses The Mark With Part 2 of Album Trilogy

Maxwell-blackSUMMERSnight-640x641-thatgrapejuice

7 years.

That’s how long fans of Maxwell were forced to wait for his newest release ‘blackSUMMERS’night’ – part 2 of his album trilogy.  Released to hungry fans on July 1, the project – kicked off by the #1 R&B single ‘Lake By the Ocean’ – comes as the long-awaited follow-up to 2009’s Grammy winning set ‘BLACKsummers’night’ (featuring the hit ‘Pretty Wings’).

Originally set for release in 2010, the new album’s 6 year pushback – once thought to only increase the intensity of anticipation for its premiere – has seemed to do the opposite (if preliminary figures are judged).  According to industry analysts, the lack of buzz surrounding the project, in conjunction with spotty promo, will see it fall far from the 300k first week sales of its predecessor.

Keen to see how Max fared this time around?  The first prediction awaits below:
