  2. christinastherealtalent November 21, 2012

    It sucks all the talented artists are struggling to make a comeback much less gain a hit.

  3. JAKE November 21, 2012


    At least she is selling, resasonably, more than ‘XXXXXXXXXXXXXLtina WARTHOGria BURGERKINGuilera”. KIIIIIIII. 😉

    GO KEYSHIA. But then again, its still a FAR cry from ‘Just Like You’ and ‘A Different Me’ sales > YOUR BEST ALBUMS.

  6. Wacky O November 21, 2012

    Does anyone know the how many first week sales her last 4 albums had?

    I do love me some Kesha but I’m not really feeling this new era!

    • Dee November 27, 2012

      Around 250,000 to 300,000

  7. Simply me November 21, 2012

    I agree I’m disappointed in how these talented artist old school to new school are struggling so much when comes to sells but we have the average artists dominating the charts smh! This generation of music is….is yeah pretty much is all I got smh. I do wish keyshia the best and much success.

  8. Christina Aguilera November 21, 2012

    Even the ghetto muskrats are selling more than me!

    LOTUS-73k and you f*** will deal!!!!

  9. Ugh November 21, 2012

    Did she really say she was biracial and that she was apprehensive of doing Black Girls Rock because of that LMAO she tried it……………………………………she should be tryna perform anywhere she can LMAO

    • Anne November 21, 2012

      Can’t believe she said that. It’s obvious that she lives as a black woman and when people look at her that’s all they see. No one would know she was biracial by looking at her. Would a ridiculous comment about the show. The fact that she thought that was relevant says a lot about her.

  10. Alex November 21, 2012

    The album is pure trash. Wasted my money.

    • Truth November 25, 2012

      LOL haha. I’m glad you wasted it.

      • Dee November 27, 2012

        You know well and good that’s a lie! Woman to woman is fire.

    • Hool November 28, 2012

      To each his own. It’s been on repeat in my car and iPOD! Love every song.

  11. mkigz November 21, 2012

    It’s a shame that the numbers are lower than her previous albums, but R&B music just isnt selling as well as it used it. What I wonder though is whether she would be selling more if the album hadn’t leaked early….

    • Mely B November 21, 2012

      Let me preface my comment by stating that I am a Black woman: It is a shame that pure r&b isn’t being supported by music audiences and maybe my thinking is too old school but I can’t imagine it helps any artists’ sales to have an entire album leak.

      I think an 85k first week is good for her considering she is not a mainstream artist. It would’ve been nice to see her or Brandy on the AMAs but of course, I forgot r&b isn’t considered american anymore.

      Yts never supported Keyshia Cole nor consistently support any other soulful r&b Black female singers. Young yts tend to follow whoever is trendy or “cool”.

      Black people these days prefer to illegally download music moreso than supporting artists. There is a really negative “crabs in a barrel” mentality that I cannot fathom. I’ve heard comments to the extent that people feel they can end someone’s career by NOT paying for albums or going to their shows or rejoicing when someone’s album “flops” (how I hate that word).

      I’m fortunate to still have a job and have discretionary money for entertainment so I tend to buy a lot of cds & downloads each year while I know others are struggling financially and consider buying music a luxury.

      • Anne November 21, 2012

        Well I grew up lisening to R&B/Soul, Pop, and Soft Rock in the 70’s and 80’s and the truth is the new R&B music is not up to par. I’d rather keep digging for oldies and building my collection of back in the day jams from the ’70’s, 80’s, and a bit of the 90’s up to a few exceptions post millinium b/c most of the new R&B (and pretty much new music in general) is just not worth buying these days, in my opinion.

  12. kcity28@yahoo.cmo November 21, 2012

    Keyshia, first of all you look really good. I didn’t know you were biracial, but it’s okay to do BGR. You’re black my love!

    The sales for these artists with strong followings are not be desired. I didn’t expect much higher, but it’s so disappointing to see talented stars falling short of 100K. I’m not a KC fan, but I do respect her. She deserves better (Chrissy, Cici, Bran, etc do as well). Good music is failing to chart the way it should and that’s really sad. This decade is really going to be a piece of work.

  13. Crizzy November 21, 2012

    Keyshias dad is a random Italian named Sal that she never even met…she was raised by black people in the hood, and her mom is a black dope feign so of course shes black! She is so dumb!

  14. LittleJohnny November 21, 2012

    Those are actually great numbers in this day for someone like Keyshia who caters specifically to the urban R&B audience. Very very impressive. And I did purchase the album myself and it’s good!!

    • Anne November 21, 2012

      To describe the sales as “great” or “impressive” is a stress. Its ‘okay’ for sales of R&B these days but folks like Trey Songs and Jill Scott were able to sell more even though they cater specifically to an R&B/soul audience. But you are right, sales are most limited in that genre so I would describe her numbers as okay for the genre.

      • Anne November 21, 2012

        Meant to say your description is a stretch (not stress)

    • Truth November 25, 2012

      No they’re not. I hate when people sugarcoat and downplay. The truth is nothing under 450-500k is “impressive”. Good, maybe. Satisfactory, maybe. “Impressive,” no. And anything under 150k (especially if you’re an established act with an established fan base) is bad.

      Keyshia has never really been a mainstream/pop-accessible act. She never especially appealed to white folks and pop fans, so no one expected her to this time. However, seeing as how these are her poorest #’s, that means that she didn’t engage those same Black/R&B music fans who bought her music just a handful of years ago.

      I like Keyshia and R&B as much as anyone but watering down the truth doesn’t help anyone or anything. All it does is lower expectations and that’s not good. Her management and her label so far are doing a poor job of promoting her and her music and the #’s show it.

  15. JER November 21, 2012

    I’ll wait for the final numbers, but it looks like she turned people off with the last record and can’t seem to get them back

  16. Monstarebel (F*** ON THATFLOPJUICE FOLLOW MY EVERY MOVE) November 21, 2012

    Omg this is her lowest album sells Smh she should definitely sell over 100k WTF. 🙁 those numbers are for people like ciara n Kelly Rowland

    • Alex November 21, 2012

      Kelly Rowland deserves higher sales

  17. d November 21, 2012

    no those #s should be for nontalent like rihanna. ciara should do at least 100 this go round as a build up to where she was before.

  18. PrettigurlrockD Bitchess November 21, 2012

    Shame everybody talented is flopping. Bey and Gaga are our last hopes.

  19. truth( im known to DRAAAAAAGGG a b**** chile) November 21, 2012

    Chile who cares!!! #waiting for Tasia chile

  20. OMG (Celine Dion) November 21, 2012

    …………………………………………………………………………….. FLOPS COMPETING WITH OTHER FLOPS. SOO NOT COOL

  21. DUNEQUAISIA November 21, 2012

    Since when was Keisha Coles talented? That ardvark can’t even sing.

  22. bash November 21, 2012

    Wow rnb is Just not a major genre anymore im a huge kc fan and I wanted her to do really well I mean missing 100k isn’t good but not too bad I guess since bran only did66k n Monica did about that usher n Chri s brown barely got over 100 k first week so It’s not too bad considering her genre n peers

    • mobwife: operation kill that b*tch November 21, 2012

      R&B is the genre that all the so called great artists have STOLEN from (see ADELE, JUSTINE TIMBERFAKE, AMY WINEHOUSE etc) so to say it’ s not a major genre is not exactly true. What you are seeing is what happens when ppl DEVALUE THEMSELVES & THEIR PPL! All I read on Uriban sites are hateful, evil comments about R&B artists. The music stations are no longer owned by those who traditionally catered to the R&B community. When VH1 Soul was sold to RYAN SEACREST I knew it was the END OF R&B! Those who controll it al…l THE POWERS THAT BE, are only interested in promoting & supporting POP, COUNTRY & HIP HOP! It’s really sad that actual talent is no being encouraged in the industry.

      • boopboop November 21, 2012

        i believe rnb will make a comeback but it will have a white face attached to it. i know there have been white rnb singers but i think tptb will come up with somebody who will be commercially successful enough to dominate the genre and overshadow all of the black singers who came before him/her(tho i think it will be a her for some reason).

  23. MUSICHEAD November 21, 2012

    The answer to this is simple: The labels don’t market r&b artists to pop radio anymore. They’re not even trying. If you didnt watch BET or listened to urban radio you wouldn’t even know this album was out. Most consumers don’t read blogs either so I’m trying to figure out who they expect to buy these albums if the general public doesn’t even know they’re out.

  24. BCinKS November 21, 2012

    The album is garbarge. THAT’S why her sales are 100k+. She hasn’t been the same since Just Like You. She’s a good lyricist, but I think her musicality is sometimes off and her melodies are awful. She needs Ron Fair back immediately.

    • BCinKS November 21, 2012

      *AREN’T 100k+

    • MUSICHEAD November 21, 2012

      Ron Fair can’t even help Christina what is he gonna do for KC?

      I think the album is pretty good. Just lacked real promo.

  25. MUSICHEAD November 21, 2012

    On another note, I hope the Keyshia Cole & Brandy tour happens. That would be hot!!!

    And where is Brandy? She hasn’t promoted her album in weeks and Wildest Dreams is stalling at urban radio. It’s time for a new single IMMEDIATELY!

    • Kandice November 21, 2012

      She is releasing “Do You Know” next.

  26. HOTSTUFF November 21, 2012





  27. the voice November 21, 2012

    @mely b

    not about being black……..

    her new team at interscope and mgt did not promote this project well… period

    She could have gone on Kelly & Michael, Kimmel, Leno, Fallon, GMA, Ellen, etc…. well before the CD was released like with her other CDS but she didnt……..

    She could have performed a song from her album each week after her reality show like Monica but she didnt

    She could have released I CHOOSE YOU as her 1st single but she didnt …..

    I want Keyshia to win but she only promted her CD on BET… that is not gonna work….

    I hope she releases I CHOOSE YOU …. that is a hit

    • MelyB November 22, 2012

      I referenced race in regards to who overwhelmingly supports her career and why her first week sales are where they are. Yes, her promo team could have done all that you suggested but do you dispute my statement regarding a lack of yt support for her during her entire career?

      Her promo team didn’t do any of this to promote her during the JUST LIKE YOU era and she sold well despite this because people supported her music. I stand by my comment that even if she HAD appeared on all of the shows you listed, yts would NOT have supported her because Keyshia is not a CROSSOVER/MAINSTREAM ARTIST she is a Blace female r&b artist! Young yts do not support r&b unless it is more pop/dance influenced and they sure don’t listen to artists in Keyshia’s lane.

  28. Simply me November 21, 2012

    Umm to the people who are saying that brandy hasn’t been promoting her album that s not accurate because Sam is not post any information on her check twitter and Facebook page and you will have your answer and brandy just attended the amas awards check necole bitchie on that one two she had mini concerts at Howard theater and Baltimore so she promoting her album it may not be big as Rihanna promo but all you can do is blame the label for that

    • MUSICHEAD November 21, 2012

      That’s not promo. Promotion is when you perform your music at an award show so that ppl have a reason to buy your music. not being a presenter.

      Also, I am a huge Brandy fan so please believe we follow each other on twitter. Those concerts were great but that is not promotion. The ppl who come to her shows already have the intention to buy her music if they haven’t already.

      I’m just surprised she didn’t perform at the Soul Train awards, AMA’s, no late night show performances since the album dropped. No magazine covers. Hell…she hasnt even been on Chelsea Lately.

      She needs to push another single ASAP cuz Wildest Dreams is dead in the water and I’m very surprised it was ever released as a single.

      I say add a rapper to Do You Know and push that as the next single since radio has already jumped on it.

  29. Simply me November 21, 2012

    ^ stillI consider that some what of promotion cause I’m fan as well but I agree with you tho sigh…

  30. B2B November 21, 2012

    That is crazy I thought she would push like 200K+. I think she needed more promo or something because the album is actually good. It’s not a Just Like You buy its better than most of the stuff being put out today. If she continues to promote it and tour for 2013 and then release a new album early 2014 she will do better.
    But besides all of that I believe that the industry is now all politics. Record labels buy a lot of CDs so that their artist will get a number one which is promo itself.

  31. Saphistocation November 21, 2012

    That bi-racial comment was totally out of place and irrelevant to the discussion. I guess now she wants to be addressed as such. Keyshia show us your dad then we’ll tell you what you are…OAN the $4000 shoe comment to a bunch of teeny boppers that can’t relate was tacky and ghetto.

  32. Guest November 22, 2012

    The fact that Keyshia is set to sell the same amount of albums Xtina sold first week is just sad…

  33. honeychildplease November 22, 2012

    Wow that bi racial comment though smh…ummm

  34. shawnta November 22, 2012

    keyshia ain’t going that high they got them estimates from a old intern that got promoting to better position in the industry n dem bi–hes need dem f4our hundred dollar a wk jobs now that’s d tea n d scoop

  35. shawnta November 22, 2012

    keyshia ain’t going that high they got them estimates from a old intern that got promoted to a better position in the industry n dem bi–hes need dem f4our hundred dollar a wk jobs now that’s d tea n d scoop heard the intern manage a white rappa that wuz #1 on the blk charts ju-heard mea

  36. Free2beme November 26, 2012

    The number is what I expected. Yesterday R&B sales of 200k to 500k the first wee are dead in the water and will never return. If any R&B artist (true R&B) can sales 65k to 100k opening week that is success in today’s market, if they finish with a gold certification, it’s considered a smash. The album is actually one of her better albums. Hope her label continue to support it throughout next year because it’s a very solid album.

  37. rob November 27, 2012

    Keyshia Cole is great but her popularity is dying out as we speak, plus it’s never a good idea to release an album the same week as Rihanna!! R&B is out and electronic pop music is in, the sooner she realizes that, the sooner her pockets will be filled
