Akon’s ‘So Blue’ Makes Digital Splash / Eminem ‘Chart Blocks’ Lady GaGa’s ‘ARTPOP’

Published: Thursday 14th Nov 2013 by David


Nine years after his debut album ‘Trouble’ saw him become one of the world’s most celebrated performers, Akon has welcomed a brand new hit in the jam that is ‘So Blue‘, penned by seasoned chart topper Claude Kelly.

Why the ‘Lonely’ lyricist is on course to rocking the ‘Hot 100’?

Full story below…

After delivering its music video the world two days ago, Akon‘s ‘Blue’ now finds itself winning over the wallets of the general public, who took to iTunes to show their support of the single in the hours that followed.

It was this support, that has now placed the cut in several Top ten positions in numerous markets, seeing it perched at #4 on iTunes USA R&B, #6 on iTunes’ UK’s Urban tally and #2 in Canada, months before the 2014 unveiling of his new studio album ‘Stadium.’

Elsewhere, before its pre-order sales help it avoid selling any less than 200,000 units in its opening week, Lady GaGa‘s ‘ARTPOP’ continues to dominate many a digital Top Ten across the globe, but finds itself ‘chart blocked’ by Eminem’s Marshall Mathers LP 2.’

For, in what may strike concern into the hearts of her more loyal supporters, ‘POP’ is now being outperformed by ‘Mathers’ on iTunes UK and iTunes USA, despite the latter being in its second week of release. As it stands, the Hip Hop has a healthy chance of topping the Billboard 200 for a second consecutive week if its sales continue to soar- threatening to stop ‘POP’ from spending its opening week at the top spot.

    We all knew Eminem was gonna block flopga. I love how he just came at the last minute, barely any promo in comparison, on top of her release and BAM! Slayed. It just gets worse and worse for the monsters.

    Eminem’s second week drops aren’t usually that steep which will allow him to be able to block Gaga next week

    • Artbarf November 14, 2013

      Lady Gaga is a pathetic self-absorbed overrated singer of this decade.

      She think she’s using reverse psychology but is actually proving what everyone says about her to be true.

      She’s desperate for attention. She has to use Twitter to tell the world how relevant she is. That’s Gaga. Cheap and phony with no class. Would Rihanna? Would Madonna? Would Mariah? Would Beyonce? Would Katy? Would Miley?

      She thought she could get away with this Fartpoop and trying to sabotage by Roar by pushing Applause out on the same day but it backfired and Katy outsold her. Now she doesn’t know how to react and she’s going to get even more pressed if her sales aren’t what she wanted either.

      Lady Gaga is the best example of cheap and vile pop star in the world. And Monsters are the most universally despised fans in the world.

  3. trainwreck November 14, 2013

    Porcelain Black is somewhere laughing at fartpop floping like this! What a shame Gaga is somewhere with a bottle of whiskey drowning her sorrows!

  4. Super Cisus November 14, 2013

    How The mighty have fallen. Night night GaGross

  5. JamesDean November 14, 2013

    Mr Mathers with barely any promo used that MONSTER hit song with Rihanna to block the monsters. Navy’s brought his stuff plus his fanbase is as loyal and so big as they come. Talk about a scalping and the best thing is all the noise the monsters made they didn’t even hear him coming!

    • Abel November 15, 2013

      Ok, Claudia. Sit there!
      You talk about the Navy, on how they are helping buying Eminen’s album, when they should care buying Rih’s albums, what clearly they don’t. So please, have a sit.

  6. Mark111 November 14, 2013

    Told you!!!!! Feels go good being right.

  7. Grimreaper November 14, 2013

    Flopga’s stans dragged Katy’s album sales, yet their phave will do Miley numbers. At least Katy improved with 100K in comparison with

    (A)
    (R)eally
    (T)errible
    (P)iece
    (O)f
    (P)huckery

    Which drops 900k compared to BTW. Gaga is a flop, yall shouldve listened to Ne-Yo when he said she won’t be an icon/legend.

  8. Anne November 14, 2013

    What does one story have to do with the other? More attempts to downplay Gaga’s saga.

  9. LaDiva November 14, 2013

    Laday Gaga- #TheStruggleIsReal

    It’s all become too much now GaGa.. Sometimes less is more.

  10. BeyIsKing November 14, 2013

    Deserves it after trying to do the same to Katy

  11. beyawnce November 14, 2013

    Ultimate kiiiii if he blockes her to number 1 stop

    • beyawnce November 14, 2013

  12. Lovebird (Britney Jean – 03.12.13) November 14, 2013

    Yes, more meltdowns from the t***** who mixed “art” and pop and made a flop.

    I knew Eminem was going to block her, and I’m happy he did.

    The monsters were going in on Katy who’s opening week sales have increased from her last album, only for their fav’s opening week sales to drop over 50%.

    They were coming for Katy’s metacritic score when the so called album of the millenium is only 2 points ahead.

    How the mighty have fallen.

  13. Sisqo is a Legend November 14, 2013

    BLAHHHH HAHAHAHA T***** DADDY IS NOT ONLY SELLING 275K BUT WILL ALSO BE BLOCKED BY EMINEM,STILL NO #1 HIT FROM FARTFLOP.I THOUGHT FLOPGA WAS QUEEN OF POP!! FLOPAUSE GOT SLAYED BY “ROAR”,”WRECKING BALL” AND “DIAMONDS”. AND DON’T YOU DARE SAY SHE SELLS ALBUMS AND SINGLES ARE CHEAP WHEN FARTFLOP WILL DO 275K!!

  14. Sisqo is a Legend November 14, 2013

    FLOPGA IS NO QUEEN OF POP!! MORE LIKE THE ROYAL FOOL/JESTER

  15. EveRyder November 14, 2013

    First of all, congratz to akon. I’m kind of disappointed in gaga sells compared to what she normally does, but we all know she got hits on that album and it will go platinum status. Since when the hell first week sales determined u r a flop? Itunes, shazam,and rhapsody can be a big disadvantage for an artist bcuz this generation only buys a hand full of singles instead of full albums.

  16. Yuckssss November 14, 2013

    Arpop from the Haus of RuPaul ???? Yeah, let it flop.

  17. JohnVidal November 14, 2013

    oh my. my, my, my

  20. Rosie November 14, 2013

    Kii. I bet Flopga will be blocked by Eminem once again. His album is selling better and has more acclaim than Recovery and Chartflop.
    The real kii is that she likely won’t outsell Born To Die at this rate with her poor longevity, not even in the US where BTD is almost platinum and still charting after nearly two years.

    • Common Sense November 14, 2013

      Why are you even comparing them? At least Born to Die is an original creation in a sea of basic garbage music. Artflop is just more electronic crap with overblown, meaningless lyrics.

  21. GAGATHETRUTH November 14, 2013

    I STILL LOVE YOU GODGA

    LORD OF POP!

    YASSSSS SIPS HENNESSY!
