Ouch: Jay Sean Sells Less Than 4000 Copies Of New Album ‘Neon’

Published: Thursday 8th Aug 2013 by Sam

As chart disasters go, few are as colossal as Jay Sean and his latest album ‘Neon’.

Indeed, the four year gap between the said project and 2009’s breakout set ‘All Or Nothing’ has proven fatal for Sean’s once promising career.

See what we mean after the jump…

According to Chart News, the LP (released via Cash Money Records) shifted a paltry 3608 copies in its first week on sale. Clearly, embarrassment begets embarrassment, as the numbers saw the album limp in at number #116 on the Billboard 200. Needless to say, this is one brand of ‘Neon’ that isn’t shining at all.

************

Given the string of smash hit singles Sean has achieved on both sides of the Atlantic, this fall from grace is uber unfortunate. Because, while there’s been clear mishandling of his career in the years following ‘Down’ (so much so that most didn’t even know he had a new album out), selling so few copies indicates there’s essentially no core fan-base to build on.

Nelly Furtado can breath easy.

      • harris boy August 8, 2013

        @ the one

      • FAF August 8, 2013

        @Harris Boy proof that Ciara stay on everybody mind on this blog

        and in order for Tamar to do better than Ciara, she will have to have a #1 album, sell over 375k (since Ciara did 338k with “Evolution” and go 4x platinum, since Ci did 3xplat with “goodies”)

        so if u comin, come on @TheNone 😆 😆 😆 😆

        Muppet Lucky if she can come for K Michelle 😆 😆

  10. The one August 8, 2013

    Those sales are pathetic.

  11. Beyawnce August 8, 2013

    How you gon do worser than Kreayshawn even though you had a few hits

  12. Rihking August 8, 2013

    And how can people really say he’s attractive. Ew n**** looks like Aladdin tbh.

    • dustin August 8, 2013

      you’ve got to be just about the dullest bulb in the chandelier, not to mention racist (intentional or not). you’re essentially saying he is ugly because he looks like someone from the middle east… first of all, he is punjabi of pakistani/indian descent, whereas aladdin (a fictional character mind you) originated in a SAUDI ARABIAN folk tale. not the same boo thang.

      not to mention he is classy and well educated unlike “rih rih”. just sayin.

      • Rihking August 8, 2013

        You f****** sensitive little b**** I find some Indian men hella attractive and exotic looking and I called him Aladdin because I was f****** around I call Kelly Rowland princess tiana all the time.Get a life

      • POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) August 8, 2013

        Aladdin Was from Iraq.

    • dustin August 8, 2013

      i’m not sensitive. just don’t think you can make ignorant/ uneducated statements and expect people to look them over.

      oh and i’m not a b**** but you are still dumb as hell. when you go to bed tonight bow down and pray for brains.

      • Rihking August 8, 2013

        Well I apologize if your,feelings were hurt. I don’t have anything against Arab Indian any race. And I don’t have to proof it to you.if you want to be a dumb b**** and think I’m racist I don’t give a f*** .i know who I am boo.i don’t need anyone to tell me otherwise.

    • Rihking August 8, 2013

      Or nationality or ethnicty

      • dustin August 8, 2013

        fair enough boo. i didn’t have to come at you that hard. clearly i run off at the mouth too. not that i’m the karma police but we all have to be accountable for the words that come out of our mouths.

        back to jay sean… i don’t really know what to think about this. i know he has been a pretty large presence in the uk but really only popped off here in the states with down. i’m assuming that he isn’t with young money anymore? cause surely they would have thrown down some more cash to ensure some better numbers.

    • Rihking August 8, 2013

      And thank you for being understanding I wasn’t trying to hurt anyone glad we got that mess out the way. I get way to free sometimes anyway what you said about jay was that’s so true. I mean clearly he must be signed to another label.clearly a label that doesn’t give a rats ass about him seeing that there was no promo.

      • Ciara stan August 10, 2013

        First off he was never with young money he was with cash money, second this just proves that people don’t read the posts but rather s roll down and immediately start running off at the mouth, it clearly says in the article he is still on cash money, READ PEOPLE!!

    • Huh August 8, 2013

      Um… Aladdin was cute, you ghetto trash lmao.

      And Jay Sean is South Asian, you uneducated trash

  13. August 8, 2013

  22. LOOOL August 8, 2013

    Of course, No one knew.

    His album is one of the best RnB album out though.

    Thats the truth. its better than miguels, trey songz and the rest of them.

    Cash money just don’t promote artists other than wayne drake and niki and tyga (well…). Such a shame

  23. #Hive August 8, 2013

    Omg someone whos a bigger flop than Ciara.

  24. August 8, 2013

    FaF is CIARA4EVER, how f****** pathetic of you! You have no life and have been exposed on a jay sean post. Get a life u section A low income biaaatch!

    • #Hive August 8, 2013

      Lmao yaaas reeeead haaa!!!

    • ENOUGH ONIKA (KMART QUEEN) August 8, 2013

      What a surprise –__–

  25. POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) August 8, 2013

    Loved ” all on your body” and the last part of his album though.

  26. stella August 8, 2013

    lmaooo at everyone dragging FAF aka F** Ci-Error and Dicki Flopage stan… Yessss!!!!!!!! That h** deserves it 🙂

  27. Daniel Teflon August 8, 2013

    Jay Sean has a nice voice like many have said “PROMOTION IS KEY”

  28. GrandGrande August 8, 2013

    I’ve never heard of him…..

  29. EveRyder August 8, 2013

    Smdh @nico for u to call EVE a flop u sure do keep tha pit bull in a skirt on ur mind. U need to worry about that wack flopi hoenaj bcuz EVE ain’t worried about nuttin. All her cash comes to her pocket why hoenaj has to give hers away.now back to jay sean he didn’t promote his album so nobody knew he had one to drop. I blame ymcmb bcuz they stuff drake,hoenaj,and wayne down our throats so we can’t enjoy the other artists like jay sean and tyga.

  30. Lovebird (Roar – PRISM – 10.22.13)) August 8, 2013

    Well….in his defense at least he has music out. I don’t know why the hive are laughing when their fav recorded 100,000 songs according to Jay-Z and the best she could do is Grown Woman, a redundant repetitive mess.

    At least Jay Sean has an album, where’s Beyonce’s??? Is she still in hiding??

    • channel_ROMAN August 8, 2013

      I’ve seen you write about Beyonce more than you write about Katy Perry. Don’t your fingers hurt?

    • Fierce & all August 8, 2013

      Does it matter b****? Beyonce will at least sell 300-400k her first week when the album is out and ur dumbass will be purchasing it!

      • Hush August 8, 2013

        “Beyonce will at least sell 300-400k”

        Yep. A figure that RIhanna will NEVER do.

  31. Lil Mo Stan and trey burkes husband (Kendricks d*** game wasnt on point) August 8, 2013

    Gagging at the fact that faf revealed his own damn self as Ciara4ever! The ultimate tgj kii of the night, tbh!

  32. Ms.Campbell August 8, 2013

    Sits back and watches how Ciara is brought up in almost every single comment/post on this dam blog. The b**** must be doing something right, No matter how much her latest flopped. The girls are still comparing her, and bringing up her accolades, and failures…….

    Anyway,

    WHO THE F*** IS THIS JAY SEAN GWORL?!?!

    Now those are some horrible numbers!

    The similarity in numbers reminds me of how much Rihanna was bringing in prior to GGGB.

  33. Fierce & all August 8, 2013

    Didn’t he have a hit a few years ago? He’s not popular here in the US. Never knew his album was out. But most of his music is pretty lame. He’s worse than Jason Derulo.

  34. JER August 8, 2013

    Nelly Furtado ha influence

  35. Hush August 8, 2013

    His fault for signing with a hack label like Cash Money. They’re saving all their resources to secretly buy back Drake’s album from stores the week its released, they don’t have the extra dollars to do that for no Jay Sean too.

  36. Timago August 9, 2013

    This is worse than SMELLY FLOPLAND!!!!!!!

  37. Brazilian Beyonce!!! August 9, 2013

    stop hating ugh

  38. Todd August 9, 2013

    Just sue the effin label….

  39. Love on top August 9, 2013

    Lol ciara quickly became the topic signs you know you snatching 60k first week only a top 30 carrying the album pls the bish came 4rm 34k? Nobody does that btw Body party on its way cold and it just missed the top 20 at #22 c** on a R&b song snatched wigs and its on its way gold its sales is near 400k yeah a flop *twerks*

  40. B. Hill August 9, 2013

    Wow. That’s almost as bad as Rihanna’s first week sales. Jay Sean better pay Chris Brown to slap him to earn 15 more minutes of fame, like she did. LOL

  41. Shady365 August 9, 2013

    this just goes to show. Promotion is everything if you not out promoting wtf you think was going to happen you was gone sell 300k in the first week.

  42. artPOOP August 9, 2013

    that Nelly shade was unecessary. Thats really sad for Jay though. I mean, its not like he’s the best looking artist, or the best singer or dancer for that matter; so I guess he can be thankful for whatever fame he was able to collect from the masses and thrown in the towel. Hell, with that many sales his towel will be thrown in before he even gets to do it himself. btw, 3608 is not 4000 and the difference is practically 10%+… don’t round up 10% tgj; thats just blowing things outta porportion! lolol

  43. cocobutta August 9, 2013

    Who knew???

    This is why you must create a buzz be4 going gun h** with a project

    (Cues my sideeye)

  44. moka July 31, 2014

    lol y’all are all funny. I’ve been a diehard fan since day 1. I was one of those “few buyers” of this album…unless you wanna count all the downloads he got for every song and every upload for free….he is one amazing guy! I have been his serious fan since the 5th grade and still follow all of his music. I will agree with you on one thing, his music was definitely not promoted as much as it deserved to be. It was promoted for one week (or at least it seemed) and then released and then scrapped (despite me playing the cd in my car every time i want to listen to my favorite hits on it). it is only embarrassing of cash money to not have been fully supportive of the music and to not promote it as much as the other equals that it claims to be equals. Regardless, his music will always be amazing to me even if he flip flops around the different types of genres he likes to experiment with. And also, racists are out there. A’int no way to get about that. Be it black, white, or brown. All races are gonna be racist. Just tells you how culturally different and unopen we all are.

  45. George August 11, 2014

    This was a disaster for Jay sean . Such a talented artist but , poor promotion and management.
