Fantasia Eyes Winning First Week Numbers With ‘Side Effects Of You’

Published: Tuesday 30th Apr 2013 by David

Hits Daily Double have very good news for ‘Without Me’ songbird Fantasia.

For, by way of their daily sales update, they have revealed that the singer’s new album ‘Side Effects Of You’ is well on its way to meeting commercial predictions set last week…selling enough units each day to possibly surpass these predictions.

Details below!

With only 46.22% of this week’s sales in, ‘Side Effects’ already boasts sales of 60,118- securing it the number 1 spot on the Billboard 200’s Urban tally and 11,817 units above Justin Timberlake‘s ‘The 20/20 Experience’.

Sure to shift even more units thanks to her glowing appearance on Barbara Walters‘ ‘The View’ yesterday, which saw her perform a reworked version of her budding hit ‘Lose To Win’.

As it stands, the project already stands as one of the fastest selling R&B releases to drop in the last two years. This, a period in time which has seen most LPs from the genre debut with 60-7ok.

    Congratulations Fantasia… 🙂

    However, it’s not just her whose sales have fallen; Michael Buble is going to debut at #1 with only 40-50k more copies than her, which is pretty bad on his terms considering that he is an album seller. Either way, Fantasia is winning.

    I bought the album two days and I love it. It has such a timeless, classicist, old- Soul sound. I wish her the best.

      Don’t know where y’all at but 60k first week sales isn’t impressive. I know a lot of the gays abandoned her over her recent comments on marriage so who knows.

    Maybe u didn’t read it correctly its at 60k with 46% reported. When the final numbers come in she will be over 100k

  3. Dee April 30, 2013

    It’s not the sales they are saying the album is going to sell more than the first predictions they posted which was 90-95k read people that’s not even the album sales people

  8. Bey Fan April 30, 2013

    I went to target, and they were sold out. Now I dont know if thats because they didn’t ship many copies, but everyone seems to love the album. Me, not as much as others… anyway, thats good for ole Fanny

  10. HOWYOULIKEIT April 30, 2013

    Lose to Win

  11. Mark111 April 30, 2013

    Good for her. I love her look she has this era, it fits her. I knew it would be #1, fallout boy was last week with 125k, so it was an ease. When will J-Hud? lol. Fanny is the only Urban AI singer that’s holding it down. I see this going gold easy.

    • Navy Sailor!!! April 30, 2013

      Right. J Hud may be a media darling, but when it comes to this music s***…FANTASIA HAS IT ON LOCK!

      • jrsells April 30, 2013

        J Hud got a lot of sympathy love…..that in turn made her a media darling, however as stated ^ JHud does not possess Half the RAW talent and emotion as Fantasia Does! Fantasia has even always outsold JHud in her endeavors! Love them both but Fantasia Monique Barrino is the truth and i’m so glad she has finally gotten her credit due

      • Cameron April 30, 2013

        LOL…I don’t know what planet you all are living on but J Hud has been outselling Fantasia consistently since she came out…didn’t her last album sell close to 200,000 1st week?…thought so…And don’t ever come for her talent..She has an Oscar and Grammys to prove it

  12. JOHNVIDAL April 30, 2013

    I knew she was going to do over 100,000 despite the predictions. I´m glad she´s going to. And I wish it could be more. It´s unfair only a couple of albums per year are able to do huge numbers nowadays (especially when on of them is Taylor Swift´s album lol)

  13. Anne April 30, 2013

    I think TGJ did this premature post just to get her fans hopes up for 100K or more and to distort the potential results. They could have just waited for the final numbers which will not reach or exceed 100K afterall. And Buble double her tally. Anyway her sales are not the worse in R&B but I don’t know if I would describe it as winning.

  14. TeamBreezy April 30, 2013

    TGJ youre a flop! She sold 88k, underperforming expectations . Congrats Tasia

  15. Susie April 30, 2013

    Aint no stopping Fantasia she is selling more than any other artists in R&B other than keyshia Cole which is still hard to believe cause keyshia has no talent but Fantasia is still relevant u cant take what god has given her which is a gift that most artists dont have So kudos to tasia we still love u so keep blessing us

  16. LoyalT May 1, 2013

    And, how many albums could you sale boo? When the final sales are in, you will be eating your negative comments….Ijs
