And The Final Sales Are In: Kanye West, Kelly Rowland & J.Cole Sold…

Published: Tuesday 25th Jun 2013 by David

…and this week’s chart figures are in!

That’s right, if you’ve been dying to see how new releases from Kelly Rowland, J.Cole and Kanye West would fare today, look no further!

We’ve got all their numbers waiting for you below!


1. Kanye West- ‘Yeezus’

First Week Sales Figure: 328,000 units.

2.  J.Cole – ‘Born Sinner’

First Week Sales Figure: 297,922 units.

4. Kelly Rowland – ‘Talk A Good Game’

First Week Sales Figure: 65,913 units.

Well done to all!

Of course, while it was Kanye who came in at #1, the real success story here lies in Cole’s ‘Born Sinner‘- only 30,078 units away from snatching the #1 spot from West and reigning supreme as this week’s highest selling album.

When one considers the power that lies in West’s brand and in his hold over the buying public, ‘Sinner’s feat is nothing short of impressive, scoring mass commercial and critical acclaim while West could only nab the former.

With the world now tuned into his cause, here’s hoping a real effort is made to push the album to Platinum status before its first birthday and- if his fans have their way- nab him multiple Grammy noms for the well received project.

Side note: In occupying the #1 and 2 spots, ‘Yeezus’ and ‘Sinner’ are the first Hip Hop albums to dominate the Billboard 200 in the same week since November 2010. Back then, Kanye’s ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ (#1) and Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Pink Friday’ (#2) set the aforementioned record with their releases, fighting off competition from every genre on the chart that week.

Later that month, Minaj scored a new peak position of #1 when the album sold a further 660,000 units- bringing its first month sales to 1 million units in the US.

Congratulations!!

    DAMNNN, Cole was close. Not bad fellas. Born Sinner is better than Yeezus in my opinion any way.

    • xzvzxvrteryery June 25, 2013

      … Unbelievable…… My friend Maggie has just married to a handsome wealthy black man. They met through ~ ~ BlàckŴhiteHub.Çoм~~ They told me it is a Specialist black white dating for black & white single s seeking interracial relationships, friendships, dating ,love and more.. So, if you want to look for people with which you can date, you are at the right place.You can meet(lawyers,busy professionals, benefactors. models, celebrities, etc….)If you are single, perhaps you can have a try.

  2. Joy June 25, 2013

    J cole should have been number one,, I really want Kelly to win,, she has amazing songs on her album

    • OhhLaaLaaLaaaaa June 25, 2013

      I agree.

  3. ColeSummer June 25, 2013

    Put Them Numbers Up J ! I See You.

  4. OhhLaaLaaLaaaaa June 25, 2013

    Why ppl not buying Kelly Album? Its a good body of work ?

    • TONIO HIZZO June 25, 2013

      Because there is no video, and/or standout single to push “SALES” … Honestly I dont think that her team was looking for that, because the time-table is very weird in the Classic sense of promoting… but They are doing so… TOO

      I was hoping Kelly wouldve released The Dirty Laundry Video and New Single in the same day and if the stars aligned SO would WITHOUT ME ft. FANTASIA…. She will see peaks when that happen….

      • TruthSpeaker June 25, 2013

        i cosign this post. kelly’s album is great. hopefully the single selection doesn’t take her down the wrong path and she gets a bigger push after Dirty Laundry & Without Me vid releases.

    • JoJo June 25, 2013

      Her last album was better

    • HerNameIsSasha June 25, 2013

      Because Kelly is so used to being second best she doesn’t put herself on top.
      Ice was slaying but she left that off the album and ONLY started doing television promo when the album came out. Like wtf. From when you see Rihanna and Gaga promoting their SINGLES weeks before they come out why do Kelly and Brandy think it’s ok to wait until their album comes out before they start doing tv interviews and performances.

      • kc36 June 25, 2013

        I agree with this. She is just nowdoing the promo which should’ve started weeks ago. There are singles on this album
        That are better than what she put out. She talks more about bey than herself. She keeps this up she will always be second fiddle.

  5. TONIO HIZZO June 25, 2013

    It was a pretty good week for urban Music….

    Congrats to all

    All these albums will grow…
    I dug All three, Kelly keep hustling boo, youre worth it

    • HausMuthaAdele June 25, 2013

      Yaaasss b****, Mutha is living and dying for your avi. Slaylise?

  6. JJFan1814 June 25, 2013

    Lmao well chile…..I’m just curious to see Ciara’s sales now.

    CONGRATS J.COLE….BORN SINNER IS F****** AMAZING! Good to know people support rap!!! It’s a very strong market alongside country, unlike R&B///POP.

    He survived the ‘sophomore curse’ by not flopping or doing worse numbers. 🙂

  7. Alex June 25, 2013

    So happy Kelly kept steady! She just needs to PUSH to go Gold now!Big congrats goes out to J. Cole, he didn’t make it easy at all for Kanye! And Born Sinner is currently outselling Yeezus on itunes…

    It’ll be interesting to see how these second week sales play out.

  8. TheTRUTH June 25, 2013

    YASSSSSSSS @ Born Sinner. CONGRATS J Cole. Your Album Was WAYYYYYYYY Better Than Kanye’s.

  9. EdwardPonton June 25, 2013

    Poor R&B hopefully a huge star will run the charts with R&B music to get people supporting it again. Cole surprised me, but his sales should honestly be better for the master piece he created. I wish Kanye cocky ass only sold 2 copies. Talk a good game is great and if Kelly keep promoting it can pick up speed like Miguel did.

    • Bey Fan June 25, 2013

      Really? I think Kanye’s album is great. Despite his attitude sometimes, he makes great music

    • Tremangel June 25, 2013

      Don’t say poor R&B please. Fantasia and Mary are doing just fine.

      • FAF June 25, 2013

        In what world? Fantasia album hasnt even sold 350 k and its been out over 3mos

      • Team Tasia June 25, 2013

        Bad math. April 23, 2013. 2 months. 210k, and still selling. She is selling better than her female R&B counterparts, and will continue to do so. 🙂

      • truth(icki’s B**** ASS STANS can EAT ME honey!! Yall b**** is a STANK P**** FLOP chile! (puckers lips like Drake)) June 26, 2013

        @faf h** how many copyies of REFLOP did YO b**** sell??? i’ll wait

  10. Bey Fan June 25, 2013

    Keeellllyyyyyy…… 3 really good albums in my opinion.

  11. JARED (WHITE DUDE) June 25, 2013

    Congratulations Kanye and J but oh my goodness…

    Why are the sales of Kelly Rowland’s album so low?

    I bought it three days ago and have, practically, played it non stop, ever since.

    But… ‘Brandy, Keyshia Cole, Fantasia’, and every other Urban artist (non hip hop) are all seeing first week sales near, and around, a similar sales bracket. Something isnt right? It can’t be all down to the fact that “R&B Is Dead” either.

    Can someone explain? 🙁

    • truth(icki’s B**** ASS STANS can EAT ME honey!! Yall b**** is a STANK P**** FLOP chile! (puckers lips like Drake)) June 25, 2013

      H** Tasia out did them all with first week numbers so shut yo extra ass up

      • Diva June 25, 2013

        @Truth

        1st week sales really means nothing in the end it matters your total sales… Fantasia had better 1st week sales but her album is still saleing slowly. Kelly did decent numbers being that she was going up against Kanye & J Cole! Whos gonna buy all 3 albums at once??? She will get a boost when she release Dirtly Laundry video as well as when Fantasia drops her new video! I really hope Kelly gets to perform @ the BET Award bcuz tht would spike her sales as well… but I think she will be doing Xfactor which kinda sucks!

      • Team Tasia June 25, 2013

        Tasia has sold well over 200k in two months, which is more than Kelly sold in two years. Sorry!!!! The key is consistency, and her album sales are showing it…

      • truth(icki’s B**** ASS STANS can EAT ME honey!! Yall b**** is a STANK P**** FLOP chile! (puckers lips like Drake)) June 26, 2013

        @ diva h** hush!! kelly, IF TRUTH be told, shouldve dodnt better and you tell me where Kellys numbers are in 3mths.

  12. Rosie June 25, 2013

    I see Urban music is coming back, even though Yeezus is superior, critics and the general public agree.
    Good for J. Cole, but LOL @ Born Sinner having a lower Metacritic score than both Cole World and Mac Miller’s album.
    jffjdnsk; @ Kelly. Flop.

  13. PRINCE CARTER FENTY June 25, 2013

    All I want to see is Ciara’s, I predict 10k.

    • POP ROYALTY [RUDE BOY] June 25, 2013

      I knew this post will be Funny.

      😆 😆 😆

    • Too Pretty For You June 25, 2013

      Nooootttt 10k!!! 😆

    • TurntUp4Cici June 25, 2013

      You want to laugh at sales when Rihanna hasn’t even sold 10 million with 7 albums.

      • earthtone June 25, 2013

        those #s are incorrect. dumb ASS

        what we do know is beyonce has never went platinum in a week and last album was a flop. adele 20 million beyonce 2.

    • MOI June 25, 2013

      hit me up you look s*** on that avi!!!

      • justme June 26, 2013

  14. The real June 25, 2013

    Yess Kelly has been working hard and has a really good album so all she needs now is to keep that good promo going to push to gold.. Let’s see them second week sales.. Leggo ps congrats to everyone..

  15. Ur Mama June 25, 2013

    Kanye West-Yeezus Sucked J. Cole- Born Sinner Is A Great Album Kelly Rowland- Talk A Good Game was a solid R&B Release not to get off topic But it seems to me Out of all the destiny’s children LeToya Luckett Is The Only Real R&B Chick who’s first two Albums Were R&B Classic Gems….I know her third album bout to be something serious…..

  16. Free yourself June 25, 2013

    Yess let’s get it Kelly.. That’s was good numbers for first weekend going up aghast cole and west.. Now all you need is to push to gold..

  17. Aaron June 25, 2013

    Kelly get them second week sales boo.. People sleeping on you and you have the best r&b album this year.. To many good songs to no what’s the next single going to be… Keep the promo going..

    • BeyWhoUWanna June 25, 2013

      Excuse me, if she couldn’t scan 100k in her first week what makes you think she’s doing to do any more than 60 in the second week. She promotes hard in the week of and then stops after a few weeks. Here i Am hasn’t even sold 300k yet and it’s been out two years.

      • Ggttvghui June 25, 2013

        Here I Am has sold 178k and sold 77k first week LOL!!

    • Ggttvghui June 25, 2013

      Fantasia has the best rnb cd this year….sorry!

  18. BeyWhoUWanna June 25, 2013

    Kelly Rowland flopped, I’m sorry. There’s no way of walking around it. She’s been in the game for almost twenty years and has never sold any more than 100k and that is a problem.
    I literally believe she doesn’t care about sales so I doubt she’ll be bothered but her fans need to stop lying to themselves about Gold and what not, because the only album of hers she bothered to make Gold was SD.

  19. Ggttvghui June 25, 2013

    LOL Kelly couldn’t even outsell Keyshia and fantasia

  20. Lana Del Slay June 25, 2013

    Let this be a warning to Ciara. Release Overdose now or flop.

    • Too Pretty For You June 25, 2013

      Ciara may do a LITTLE better. She may sell 66k lol…

  21. Music June 25, 2013

    Don’t care how u slice it, 65k is not good!

  22. Aaron June 25, 2013

    You don’t flop just because of first week sales boo.. Her album came out the same day as 2 big rappers so people are not going to get all 3 in the same week.. If she keep pushing like she is now.. Then she will be good in the coming weeks.. Her sales wasn’t that bad..

    • BeyWhoUWanna June 25, 2013

      That is the dumbest argument I’ve heard in life, so please just stop.
      There are enough people in America to buy enough albums to make every album slay, but if you don’t bother to reach those people you will flop.

      Kanye and Jcole have the exact same audience and both slayed because people probably bought both. Don’t make stupid excuses for Kelly because you’re only making it worse. She flopped because she doesn’t put in the effort until its too late.

      Fantasia slayed because she was everywhere well before her album came out so she got those preorders in. Why was anybody going to buy kellys album when the song we thought was her first single didn’t even make the album.

    • Too Pretty For You June 25, 2013

      Excuses!!! Her sales are HORRIBLE! They get lower with each album. She couldn’t even crack 100k with a smash hit (Motivation). The public just isn’t interested in her. There’s nothing about her that makes people want her album. If Keyshia can sell almost 100k with no hit single, and Fantasia 93k, there’s NO EXCUSE for Kelly! TAGG will sell around the same as Brandys album (190k) at the end.

      • POP ROYALTY [RUDE BOY] June 25, 2013

        not Brandy’s man …… it is depressing already.

        😆

        😥 😥

    • Anne June 25, 2013

      Kelly is already falling hard down Itunes chart. Doubt if it gets any better. This one will probably struggle harder than Here I Am.

  23. POP ROYALTY [RUDE BOY] June 25, 2013

    Kelly’s numbers are awful+ horrible for a first week sales , I’m sorry, how can a rap album by a new artist outsell you with less promo ? ” born sinner” ?!

    depressing Tbh.

    Kelly just don’t want it bad enough, her internet fanbase don’t buy her albums, decent album tho.

    and kanye’s album was selling only off his name on it clearly, no way this mess of an album is that good as everyone make it out to be.

    Congrats to all i guess.

    • Too Pretty For You June 25, 2013

      This. The blogs love Kelly. Oh she’s so pretty, repping for the brown girls, I love it, it’s her time. Oh but when it’s time to purchase her album & music, they go GHOST!! The Hive doesn’t support her, Michelle’s little fanbase doesn’t support her, where’s her support? I own one album (HIA) which disappointed me, so I didn’t purchase TAGG! Kelly promotion is always either sloppy or nonexistent. And her live vocals are hit or miss. The public isn’t here for her.

      • POP ROYALTY [RUDE BOY] June 25, 2013

        You SAID It !!!!

        I bought “HIA” and it is great with tracks like ” down for whatever” , “commander” , “forever and a day” , et.. , but She didn’t even remember she had an album out back then and it took four months or so for a video to come out ……………. 🙄

        her eras are a hot mess.

        i believe she has no real buying fanbase , her internet stanbase are basically People who don’t buy albums, just like Ciara.

        60K first week ?! man, this is sad and i’m not here for excuses.

  24. JER June 25, 2013

    Kelly sis… dem sales. And wasnt Kanye suppoed to sell over 500k? ….

  25. BeyWhoUWanna June 25, 2013

    I’m mad as f*** right now so can we stop loling at Kelly. Everyone wants her to win but she spends more time talking about how much she loves Beyonce than getting her s*** together.
    Do you know how bad this look in twenty years time when people notice she doesn’t have one hit album to her name?

    • Too Pretty For You June 25, 2013

      The people who want her to win don’t buy her music!

      • Angela Wesley June 25, 2013

        That a dam lie when I tried to but it the next day.
        I couldn’t but it because it was on back order. So
        I had to wait until the weekend to order it. J. Cole
        had friends like Drake to buy up his album
        and Kayne had J-zay and Roc Nation backing
        him. Kelly album will pick -up . If she went to
        number four in the first week that is still good.
        She won a Grammy for When Loves Takes
        and back then I didn’t even know she had
        a song out because it was not played on
        the radio. They said the same thin about
        HIA and it went platinum. If Kelly is such
        a flop why does she have four Grammys
        to her name.
        day it

  26. BeyWhoUWanna June 25, 2013

    I want to say that I say everything I say as a Kelly fan so don’t take it the wrong way, but i’m tired of every album failing like this.

    • Matthew Charlery-Smith June 25, 2013

      But everything you’re saying is correct. Kellys promo game is a mess. She sits on beaches on her BlackBerry communicating with her bunch of yes men, doing no promo and decides to promote fashion houses on the red carpet. She records music that alienates her Worldwide fanbase and scores minor success on RnB formats. UK and Australian top tens are new website a thing of the past.

      Can anyone tell me, if Janet Jackson refused to have questions about Michael asked in her interviews and Solange doesn’t like to talk about Her sister why does Kelly feel the need to discuss Beyonce in nearly EVERY single interview when she’s not even related to her?

      I’m surprised it did so well, I actually predicted 50k. This will probably do worse than Here I Am…and Mathew Knowles is saying somewhere in an empty Music World Music office, “I told you!”.

      • Matthew Charlery-Smith June 25, 2013

        New website? Meant to say “are now a thing of the past”.

  27. Aaron June 25, 2013

    You can’t flop of first week sales when you went up with 2 top rappers.. A flop is longeraty sales boo.. These other fan fav kills me when they say flop for first week sales like that’s all that matters. Second I don’t really give a dame what you sales for real but I do no that the album is one of the best r&b albums I heard this year.. If she did do another 60.000 next week that still would be good.. Call it a flop after about 5 months after the date..

    • Too Pretty For You June 25, 2013

      60k in the 2nd week?? Lmao most albums fall 70-80% in the second week. 20-23k sounds more realistic….

    • BeyWhoUWanna June 25, 2013

      You are such a fool.
      Even if what you’re saying is true, what do you call Here I Am when it’s only sold 178k after two years?
      And you say it’s one of the best R&B albums of the year. I’ll have to take your word for it since you’re only of the only people who bought it.
      A first week flop is a flop because the artist has spent weeks and months promoting it and has spent money to do that. When was the last time an album flopped first week but slayed after. That never happens. If you really care for Kelly you’d speak the truth.

  28. Sterling Infinity #SexDrone June 25, 2013

    They all did great! No room to hate on any of these numbers❗❕

  29. EnoughIsEnough June 25, 2013

    Something is wrong with the managers of Brandy and Kelly 2bh and I have to call them out. Fine, if you know that their songs aren’t going to be played on radio as much as you need them to, why the f*** do you wait so long to perform the live and release the damn video. And why the f*** do you put the album up for preorders but wait until the album is ALREADY OUT before you decide it’s time to go on Wendy and the rest.

    Why not learn a thing or two about Fantasia or Keyshia?

  30. Anita June 25, 2013

    Congrats to both, but I would have to say Kanye is the achiever here. No single, No Radio, No interviews, No Television shows other than SNL and 66 Projections and you still sell like that? imagine if he had a single and did real promotions, that is a big deal, Record companies are going to need to start stepping up their game, because basically Kanye just showed that you can go straight to the people and leave out the middle man and still do very well. Congrats to all.

    • Diva June 25, 2013

      To be honest Kanye isn’t the achiever! Kanye is a mainstream Rap artist arguably known as one of the best rappers in the game! He’s one of those artist that can sell just off his name… everything Kanye has done b4 his album dropped have been nuthin but a promotional campaign… infact it back fired bcuz him doing 328k is not a good look for him! Go on youtube and watch Charlamagne tha God spill the tea on Kanye promotional strategy!

      • Lisa June 25, 2013

        Trick you are blinded by tabloids and blogs, have a seat, it may have been promotion but is was not conventional promotion, Charlamagne and all those other idiots are pissed that Kanye don’t NEED to come on their stupid shows and talk sh*t knowing they don’t like them, it is a dog and pony show because you have to go smille up in the face of people who talk sh*t about you and slander your name every single day, so they are pissed so they will say anything, Kanye proved that you DON”T have to do that, let your music speak for itself and take it straight to the people. I don’t need to go on youtube. Charlamagne is an idiot hater who wishes he had an ounce of the talent of the people he talks sh*t about. How it backfired I don’t know, his album is #1 in the US, UK(for the first time since his second album) and he didn’t have to kiss no a**. I would say he won and not a thing backfired, he hasn’t even been seen since the album dropped, and it’s still selling. Stop listening to haters and start using your heads.

      • Mary Mary Why You Buggin’ June 26, 2013

        @Lisa, PREACH!!!!

  31. rih rox June 25, 2013

    I was staring at that picture of J.Cole for a while.

    WOW! He is FREAKING HOT!!!!!!!…those eyes………

  32. etone June 25, 2013

    that means beyonce next album will flop really hard.

  33. Chile Please!! June 25, 2013

    The reason why albums aren’t really selling like how they use to is because music gets leaked left & right like a week or 2 before the album comes out….look at Ci-errors album already leaked last week & it is wack…..anyway…I’m all for J.Cole & Kelly….Kenyana West…..No sir!

    • TurntUp4Cici June 25, 2013

      Oh stop it! Asap leaked and did a hundred thousand so have a seat with the rest of the flops.

      • etone June 25, 2013

        it leaked one hundred thousand FREE copies LYING s*** (what a lie) if it did it was leaked for free nobody paid for that s***. $0.00

        …..

        beythief still cant go platinum in a week and her last record….only_ sold a pathetic 2 million WW. with each record she releases her album sales drop.

        ……….
        so can I sit and s*** in your face?

  34. grab June 25, 2013

    I like the album and I rank it 3rd of my favorite Kelly albums.
    Simply Deep>Miss Kelly>Talk A Good Game….Here I Am(Worst,absolute)
    Kelly’s album is solid REAL R&B. Kelly just needs a team that takes her serious.
    I mean out of all the strong songs on the album, you release Dirty Laundry and Kisses Down Low?
    Dirty Laundry should’ve been the promo.. To get everybody talking again and then there should’ve been a lead single.
    J.Cole’s album is garbage and I don’t like Kanye as a Person, but as an artist Kanye>J.Cole
    All these people hyping J.Cole becausr they don’t like Kanye.
    Unlike alot of people who pay lip services online I brought all three albums. Kelly stans I wouldn’t be sad. At least she released quality music this time

    • Mary Mary Why You Buggin’ June 25, 2013

      “All these people hyping J.Cole because they don’t like Kanye.”

      Truth.

      Kanye is a divisive figure (something I appreciate about him) who just made a very divisive album. J. Cole’s album, which I also bought, is SO safe. There no adventure in site. It’s just a “nice” album. Guess what, making “nice” music will never put you into the elite. He’s extremely talented so, hopefully, one day he’ll make an album that will ruffle some feathers rather than music that simply confirms people.

      He’s still young. Only album # 2. There’s time. When he gets to album #6 like Kanye, hopefully his music will be at another level.

    • Matthew Charlery-Smith June 25, 2013

      I love Simply Deep too! Kelly was onto something great. It’s a shame she never followed through.

  35. Mother Monster June 25, 2013

    Kelly such a s***** album & single seller

    • HausMuthaAdele June 25, 2013

      You’re a fine one to talk about flops honey. Has Marry The Flop gone Platinum yet?

  36. Mother Monster June 25, 2013

    Ciara will be lucky to do those numbers tbh

  37. Real June 25, 2013

    These Kelly hater sounds stupid

  38. KELLYS BIGGEST HIT WAS CRAZY IN LOVE June 25, 2013

    When she wrote UH-oh AND BEYONCE STOLE THE HOOK and slowed it down and gave her no credit or money then dressed in a white tshirt and jean shorts just like Kelly did for the Cant nobody video.

      Oh no, oh no, …..can’t nobody do it like me
      Uh uh, oh no, ….can’t nobody do it like me
      Oh no, oh no,……… can’t nobody do it like me

      Uh uh …..
      Oh no, oh no,……
      Uh uh, oh no, ….
      Uh uh, na na na, na na na, na na

      beyonce stole Kellys hook and video just slowed it down and flipped the words.
      ………..

      you people can f*** off, ..

      KELLY that b**** beyonce owes you millions including awards credits grammys, etc

      Kelly couldn’t even remix the song bcuz thief beyonce was famous for the UH-OH she ripped from her the year before.

  39. Rosie June 25, 2013

    Kelly stans there are no excuses. Your fave’s sales get lower and lower with each album, of course all the urban blogs love to Stan for her but where are they when the album drops? They are GHOST. Kisses Down Low did well for an urban single with barely any promo and a very s***** video, and the hype on the internet has been pretty big. She is a veteran. She should’ve sold at LEAST 85-90k, but instead she got her ass whooped on the charts by Mac Miller. My fave can get at least 70k with no hits, Kelly should do better with one.

    • Ming June 25, 2013

      ROSIE,

      beyonce album sales decline with each record and she is only at #4 which was a WW flop especially when thick adele 20xs platinum 2nd album.

      • Rosie June 25, 2013

        Who the f*** are you even responding to? I was talking about LANA, who is able to debut with at least 70k with NO HIT US SINGLES whatsoever and still go at least gold.
        But go ahead. 4, Beyonce’s “flop” still sold over 4 times more than Talk A Good Game first week.

  40. B****** ARE A MESS June 25, 2013

    Damn kells…*SMH* How Keyshia, and Fantasia make you look basic though? You been in the game for how many years, and you still can’t push higher numbers???? Hang it up boo! No offense but i heard beyonce needs another back up dancer girl! Get them coins by any means!

  41. B****** ARE A MESS June 25, 2013

    Oh don’t worry kelly….Michelle album will be dropping soon so you will have someone in the game make you look like a blockbuster seller soon….

      • FAF June 25, 2013

        Oop! I stand corrected.. I couldve swore “Heart To Yours” was platinum 😯

      • Matthew Charlery-Smith June 25, 2013

        At least you can admit it. Michelle’s albums have done nothing nowhere! Kelly had great success with her first and singles success with Here I Am. This new era of hers is a mess!

  42. Woman To Woman June 25, 2013

    She cant even outsell Keyshia Cole tho she did 96k i thought Kelly was the r&b it gurl? Lmao. Why Beyonce couldn’t promote Kelly like she promoted Rita ora?

  43. B****** ARE A MESS June 25, 2013

  46. Lovebird June 25, 2013

    LMAO I cannot at Kelly NowhereLand, TOTAL FLOP. This is not even better than Brandy or Fantasia, hell even Xtina’s Lotus did better lmao.

    Kelly NowhereLand should add the initial ABC at the end of her name, Kelly Rowland, ABC; for A B**** Can’t, as Dion would say it.

    A B**** Can’t get a number one album
    A B**** Can’t get a hit
    A B**** Can’t go on a world Tour
    A B**** Can’t win a Grammy
    A B**** Can’t open with sales of over 100K
    A B**** just can’t

    3. Kanye West “Yeezus”

  48. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN!!! June 25, 2013

    Thought Kanye west was suppose to sell 500k…

    • Mary Mary Why You Buggin’ June 25, 2013

      You just worry about why Taylor Swift, four albums in, STILL doesn’t have a classic album.

      News flash: she’ll NEVER have one b/c she’s simply not that good.

      Sorry.

      • TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN!!! June 25, 2013

        Kanye doesn’t have a classic album either… and if you think he does.. you’re just deluded.

        sorry.

      • Mary Mary Why You Buggin’ June 25, 2013

        “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” begs to differ but stay delusional. Some people refuse to be helped.

        Oh, and tell Taylor that there’s NOTHING revolutionary about adding dup step to quasi country music.

      • TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN!!! June 26, 2013

        My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” you say is a classic album?
        ARE YOU SERIOUS?
        I couldnt even name a song of that album. That Album had NO top 10 singles on the billboard 100!

        Gosh I have to laugh at you!

      • Mary Mary Why You Buggin’ June 26, 2013

        Because YOU, a Taylor Swift fan (bad taste in music alert), can’t name a song on the album, that’s the reason it’s not a classic??? LOL.

        Wow.

        Wait. It gets better. AND because it didn’t have any Top Ten’s it’s not a classic??!!!

        I.cannot.

        Check the metacritic score/ read it/ and weep.

    • TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN!!! June 26, 2013

      Well obviously if it hasn’t got a top 10 single, the songs on the album couldn’t have had much of an impact on people could they? The album itself didn’t sell that well.

      A classic album should have songs on it that are known by almost everyone, but maybe your just someone who calls every album, they happen to like a classic album.

  49. shemon June 25, 2013

    The reason why Kelly cd will not sale as much is because of lames as* people who like to download the album off Viperal.com I like seriously this really is a good album like can we seriously start buying albums and help real artists win with there music.

  50. Tisha June 25, 2013

    Well damn! Props to J.Cole, and to think…he did so well withouta having to hook up with an attention w****, throw fits or name his baby after a map location.

    Lol, his sales may be lower but he’s a winner for that alone.

  51. Tisha June 25, 2013

    At this point it’s not hating to say Kelly wasn’t built for a solo career, I always wondered what kind of chicks would be cool being in a group where they were just glorified back-up singers and let one girl get the shine…now I know.

    Kelly Rowland is beautiful, talented, a good singer with some amazing songs…but she just proves success comes to those who WORK for it. You think if Beyonce only did promo AFTER her albums dropped and released 1-2 music videos per album she’d have made it to this point and still be considered a big name in music? No.

    Kelly…Kelly does JUST enough to get by. Enough music. Enough promo. Enough success.

    It’s like she never reaches for that #1 spot but just says “Hey if I come in 2nd or 3rd at least I still get mentioned.” shrugging. I dunno…it’s a shame to see someone who could easily SLAY always take the easy route.

    • Diva June 25, 2013

      You do realize that pretty much every r&b female in the game are saleing around the same amount. I’m not talking about Rhianna & Beyonce! They are considered pop artists! I’m talking about Ciara, Monica, Brandy, Chrisette Michelle, Kelly Rowland to name a few… Keyshia Cole sales has went down as well as Fantasia!. Fantasia also appeals to an older fan base ages 30 up besides the youngins. She also has great promotional backin every album! As for Keyshia Cole she still holds on to a few of those fans who brought her albums when albums actualy sold very well… for you to say Kelly does just enough to get by is absolutely ridiculous! She put out her best record thus far; she also has grown as a performer vocally as well as stage presence! I’m very satisfied with what Kelly is doing! The only problem I had this era was the date of the release of the album and her not tweeting and promoting over twitter enough!

  52. Team Tasia June 25, 2013

    Kelly is my girl, but it’s so disheartening to see her selling so poorly again. I looooove the album, but there is a major disconnect between her and the general public. Dirty Laundry was supposed to bridge the gap, but it hasn’t quite done so yet. I just want Kelly to WIN!!!

    Congrats to Cole and Ye! I must be in the minority because I loved Kanyes album. 6 albums in, and hes as innovative as ever. People need to realize that the old Kanye is gone….

    • BitchICan’tEvenSpellWelfare June 25, 2013

      I’m with you, I love Kanye’s album!

      It’s a very polarizing album; it’s not for everybody.

      • Team Tasia June 25, 2013

        Yay! Lol. I sooooo agree. Everything isn’t for everybody. Kanye wanted to make a point, and he did so.

  53. oh! June 25, 2013

    So Keyshia Cole sold 96,000 copies her first week yet Kelly was no where near…now Kelly who really matters more?

    • Team Tasia June 25, 2013

      Keyshia has a solid fanbase. I think that’s what Kelly lacks.

  54. DIGGER BEY June 25, 2013

    ^^^^^ Both of u b****** STFU! Queen Kelly has an loyal fanbase. Out of all her albums she always sell between 70k – 80k. This album just went down a little percent. Hoodrat Coles doesn’t have an loyal fanbase, cause if she did, Flop to Flop would of sold 250k – 300k like her other albums. So Hoodrat doesn’t have an loyal fanbase. And @Oh….U are such an stupid b****. Queen Kelly said “WE” as n DC3. And darlin, DC3 does matter more than Hoodrat Coles. Ok. #DISMISSED BITCHESSS

    I see digger Bey is still buzzing around and spreading his disgusting germs. Honey, accept the fact that Kelly NowhereLand has FLOPPED, she has so far scored the LOWEST RnB album of the year thus far. She also had no hit this era, Flop a good game won’t even pass the 100k mark.

    Now where is my fly swatter so I can SWAT this c***.

    • Suicide Blonde June 25, 2013

  57. DIGGER BEY June 25, 2013

    And if ur an R&B lover! U are missing out on TAGG! Queen Kelly went N! One of the best albums I’ve bought n 5 years and I’ve bought albums from THE QUEEN to old school R&B! I’m so proud of Queen Kelly! She really have some Slayage! Lmaoooooo If c*nts think she’s gonna flop like Citranny’s Basic S*** or A Fantasy of Flops. Queen Kelly have those sleeper #1 R&B Hits on TAGG! Singles that will b bigger than Motivation, if released. So chop that s*** up. We will see who flops out of Queen Kelly or Citranny. #WANT B THAT DIVA

  58. Lovebird June 25, 2013

    You’re still buzzing? I see I’m going to have to gas your ass. What sleeper RnB hits, Kelly released 383947827 singles prior to Flop a good game and non of them even touched the bubbling under charts, the highest she hit on the Hot 100 was number 100, so STFU with that BS fly, Ciara will slay Kelly NowhereLand land on and off the stage.

  59. DIGGER BEY June 25, 2013

    Swat DIGGER BEY???? Bwahahahahahhahahahahahahaha U wish Pathetic Ass Rihc*nt. And the lowest selling R&B album of the year, hasn’t come out yet. But its coming n 3 or 4 more weeks. C*nt u accept that Citranny will debut Basic S*** Part 2 n a couple of weeks. And u Hoeianna stans are full of delusions. Citranny is the one that hasn’t had a major hit this decade. Queen Kelly did have Motivation. So goodbye and go wash those fat rolls c*nt.

    • Lovebird June 25, 2013

      Ciara has a top 40 hit you no speaking ass, Kelly NowhereLand has got no Top 40 hit. Ciara will debut with numbers higher than FLOP a good game.

      There’s the first swat.

  60. DIGGER BEY June 25, 2013

    Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhaha C*nt gas only makes me stronger, u Fat Sloppy B****. Motivation peaked at #17 on the Billboard Hot 100 bac n 2011. Citranny has yet to land anything n the top 20, so b**** stop it. U Hoeianna/Citranny. And b**** lmao. Slay Queen Kelly off what stage??? Bwahahahahahahhahahahahahah. Stanning for them h*** has ate ur brain up c*nt. Citranny has just started bac booking stages, because of Future. Why don’t u go buy a copy of Basic S*** and make 37,000,001 bwahahahahahahahahhahahaha

    • Lovebird June 25, 2013

      Motivation was 1,000 years ago, where’s Kelly FLOPLand’s hit today? She didn’t even hit the Billboard bubbling under charts, her highest entry was at number 100, that is a FLOP.

  61. Mark111 June 25, 2013

    Like I said, R&B is better going independent. I bought Kelly album tho and it’s a good album, but her last one is still her best. But Kelly is gonna have to work, so far she is building. But summer isn’t a good time for r&b albums, last year Usher, CB and Trey did a lil over 100k each and Usher had a top 10. I see Ciara doing the same numbers.

  62. DIGGER BEY June 25, 2013

    Bwaahahaahahahaahah Citranny will see about 50k. Basic S*** + A Fantasy of Flops and this new flop all combined, will not see over 200k sold n a month. Good album sales are over for the t*****. She should of married a B Ball player like Wendel said, or stay with Future and hope he becomes the next Young Jeezy.

    lets be honest here…I think kelly is talented, she’s not a great entertainer but she can sing better than the majority of so call singers out there….

    the issue i have with kelly is that she doesnt promote herself..she has all these great songwriters, music producers on her record company payroll, and yet she doesnt use them they way she should…

    album sales doesnt really dictate how great an album is…but the fact that her album sales keeps getting lower and lower every time she release an album, tells me her stans/fans are all talk

    you would know ciara’s has more hits than kelly….i’m talking about on the billboard 100 charts, not the dance/r&b charts…

    we all know kelly is the bigger star..she has alot of fans…she even has other fan base supporting her..well i wouldnt call bashing other artists and praying for their failures, and not buying her albums, support…

    its one thing if her new album was crap, i would understand not buying it..but all her fans claim its the best r&b album,

    i did give my album away to a friend that stan’s hard for her, she claimed its one of the r&b album she ever heard..so………………….

  71. Absolved June 25, 2013

    Kelly and company did this to themselves. It’s not like Kisses Down Low was a massive hit, or is still gaining at radio. A new single, video and promotional trek should have been in circulation a good 6 weeks before the album was released. And if “Dirty Laundry” was gonna be it, then they should have pressed full steam ahead with it, instead of dragging their heels. Her album was released with virtually nothing being heavily pushed. Her management is second rate and her A&R is atrocious.

    Meh @ Kanye. Those numbers are considerably lower than originally projected. I’m not at all impressed by anything about this project. It’s like he put this album out out of boredom.

    Good for J. Cole. No one expected him to come out with such a strong piece of work that was met with such good will. This is obviously gonna be his time. Although it’s slightly annoying that he missed 300k by 3k.

  72. Lovebird June 25, 2013

    Anyway you Kelly STANS better just bow out and accept Kelly Rowland was just a poor Beyonce back-up singer/dancer. She has now been reduced to Blue Ivy’s baby sitter.

    Damn sales are so low!
    60,000-70,000 copies first week for these R&B artists is not a flop anymore, it´s the normal thing.
    Some of the best album sellers of the last years haven´t been able to do more than 180,000 copies or so with their last albums (Michael Buble or Alicia Keys). Britney or Beyonce suffered a sales decline with their lat albums, and that was two years ago. We´ll see when they release their new albums. I mean, this is a sinking ship. Even Kanye “only” sold 328,000 (with no promo, I know, it´s still great). It seems the only way is a la Justin Timberlake, crazy hype about the first week sales with all the media supporting you as if you were a new Jesus or something. If not, it´s impossible. They will do it with Eminem too. I´m sure. Only with 2 or 3 albums per year. They are their precious white boys (and don´t ask me why cos Eminem could have been bashed to death by the media a la Chris Brown, knowing what a problematic, controversial or even disgusting person he is, but oh wait, it doesn´t matter, they won´t focus on that, he is the cool white rapper, it´s ok even if he bashes women, etc, normally reason enough to be blacklisted, as it should be)

      What bs are you saying? Em was hated by media a lot more then chris brown. He was protested on constantly. But I see your a Mariah fan so why should I be surprised.
