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.
