Official: Adele’s ’25’ Certified Diamond

adele-thatgrapejuice-diamond-25

For many record labels and artists alike, the status of the music industry – in terms of sales –  is disheartening to say the least.  In fact, numbers are so abysmal, just last week we proposed the idea of reintroducing (and redefining) “silver” certifications just to acknowledge the sales achievements of those struggling to cross the “gold” threshold.

Throughout all of suggestions, guess who remains unbothered?  Adele.

It’s already well known that her latest album, ’25,’ not only set the record for highest first week sales of any album in history, but is also sitting as the best selling album of 2015 and 2016 (to date).  Since then, those mega-sales have combined and gifted the songstress with her latest diamond album.

According to the RIAA, ’25’ has been certified diamond in recognition of 10 million units shifted since its November 2015 debut.

The Final Numbers Are In!: Usher’s ‘Hard II Love’ Sold…

R&B Vet Bombs On Billboard 200

usher-hard-to-love-thatgrapejuice

Usher‘s 8th opus, ‘Hard II Love,’ may have lived up to its title after all.

Indeed, after gaining mixed review from industry insiders and fans alike (see:  thumbs down for “trend-hopping,” “lack of overall theme,” etc.), ‘Hard’ – released September 16th – was predicted to make little impact on the Billboard 200 after a full tracking week.

In fact, analysts projected the project would not only bomb – much like Ush’s ‘Hands of Stone’ movie that preceded it by two weeks – but it would give the Grammy-winning R&B vet the lowest first week sum of his 20 year+ career.

Needless to say, they were right.  Tuck in below to find out the official figures Billboard is reporting:

Fantasia Defends Headlining Slot At ‘All Lives Matter’ Concert

fantasia-definition-thatgrapejuice

Fantasia has found herself on the receiving end of a firestorm after it was announced that she’d be headlining an ‘All Lives Matter’ concert.

Initially set to be staged in her hometown of Charlotte yesterday, the gig has been postponed until next week for reasons unknown.

But the furore surrounding her involvement remains a very present problem.

Particularly in the current climate, with the advent of the ‘Black Lives Matter’ initiative; which itself was born out the continued injustices against Black people in the US and across the world.

Feeling the heat, Fantasia took to Facebook to defend herself. View the her video statement below…
