Billboard reports that the LP saw a sales decrease of 73% – selling through 65,722 copies; bringing the album’s total tally to 305,000.
Not a bad total given it’s only the 2nd week. However, should the raunchy singer experience a similar dip or even a 40%-50% drop next week, it may very well render his and his label’s hope of that ever-elusive Platinum certification fruitless. I guess time will tell.
Although, with word of mouth remaining one of the strongest avenues for consistent sales, things aren’t looking too good Songz. Slammed by critics and generally considered inferior to his previous efforts, ‘Passion’s solid first week showing is increasingly looking rather fluky.
