With the look, the sound, and the moves in abundance, if ever there was a pop perusal for today’s “total package,” Jessie J would be that with a bow on top.
Now, with three years separating U.S. fans from a new album from the powerhouse vocalist, it seems that anticipation to unwrap unheard music from said “package” has reached feverish pitch. Evidence of such not only lies with the high performance of lead single ‘Bang Bang’ (featuring Ariana Grande & Nicki Minaj) on the Billboard Hot 100, but also the acclaim that followed with ‘Burning Up’ (ft. 2 Chainz) and the album’s title track.
Her introductory set, ‘Who You Are,’ narrowly missed the Billboard 200 back in 2011 with a modest 34,000 sold its first week. Now that fans across the pond know who she is, will we see ‘Sweet Talker’ burning up the charts next week?
Your answer lies below:
Jessie J’s ‘Sweet Talker’
First week sales: 20-25,000
With the numbers above, ‘Sweet Talker’ is set for a sweet top 20 placement on next week’s Billboard 200. Because the predictions are unveiled after one day of sales, they do stand the chance of revision.
But, as always, we won’t know the official numbers until they are posted on Billboard next week.
