John Legend’s ‘Love In The Future’ Welcomes 77% Sales Increase / ‘Beyonce’ Returns To Top Four

Published: Wednesday 19th Feb 2014 by David

Better late than never.

The above may be a sentiment adopted by R&B staple John Legend, whose latest album ‘Love in the Future‘ is enjoying an epic chart revival of sorts this year…seven months after its August 2013 release.

Full story below…

Despite launching with modest opening-week sales of 68,000 units, Legend’s continued push of the album on the venue-filling ‘Made To Love’ tour and the 56th annual Grammy awards have shed fresh light on the release, forcing the general public to pay attention to all its material had to offer.

…and pay they did. For, in news that’s set to silence any who’d written the project off, this week saw it score a sales increase of 77% in the US, shifting 20,133 units since last week’s charts were published!

Peaking at #4 on the Billboard 200, the album is now on course to spend this week at #15, doing so after its Toby Gad-penned piece ‘All of Me’ was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America, for shipments of over 500,000 units.

Elsewhere, as Pink‘s ‘The Truth About Love‘ returns to the Top 50 with 7,837 units, Beyonce’s self-titled new album returns to the Top 5, thanks 50,132 copies sold in the last week. As it stands, the project now holds the #4 spot, five places above Katy Perry’s ‘Prism’ which sits pretty 32,395 copies shifted within the same space of time.

    Prism was predicted to sell 24-27k and it ended up selling 32k. Impressive. I don’t think Prism has left the top 10 on BB200 since it’s release. Meanwhile, Dark Horse has reached 3x platinum with no video out. I predicted it’s reign would be long.

    But I thought the “hype” for Beyoncé’s album was supposed to die quick? Wasn’t “Can’t Remember to Forget You” supposed to take all the attention away from it?

    Hmmm. Funny how all this works, isn’t it?

    Where’s ArtPoop? Katy, Bey and Miley are killing Gags. Where’s the monsters? I thought she was an album seller? I won’t get at Britney cause she put 15 years in and has a show. I haven’t seen a Gaga stans in months! lol

    Congrats to John Legend!!!So unexpected at this point.
    I wish it could happen with Janelle Monae´s album too. Both were released last September and I spent like an entire month saying they deserved to sell more copies. Both were two of the only 5 albums I purchased in 2013.

    PS: In what planet is any album by Pink a masterpiece??? Seriously people use the words masterpiece, flop, diva and slay so easily. I don´t think they know what they mean anymore.
