The Estimates Are In: Nick Jonas Set To Sell…

Published: Wednesday 12th Nov 2014 by Sam

Since the Summer, Nick Jonas has been pushing a sizzling promo campaign designed to rebrand him as a solo star.

Indeed, the former Jonas Brothers member has styled and profiled in a number of racy shoots which haven’t just sent pulses racing, but also helped his current single ‘Jealous’ rocket its way up the charts.

The real test, though, comes this week now that the 22-year-old’s self-titled debut album is finally in stores.

How are its sales shaping up? Find out below…

According to Hits Daily Double, ‘Nick Jonas’ is on course to debut within the top ten of the Billboard 200 with first week sales of…

35,000 – 40,000


Given the current sales climate, the numbers are commendable – especially when considering that it’s Jonas’ first swing of the bat solo.

Having given it several spins here at TGJ, we concur that it’s a solid set. As such, it’ll be interesting to see how it’s worked moving forward.

      • Erik November 12, 2014

        Mariah couldn’t reach 60k. Be real!

      • RCi November 12, 2014

        Maybe because MooMoo is one of the best selling artists ever and she couldn’t even sell 60K.

    • Oh, so we doing this today!? November 12, 2014

      • Big Boy November 12, 2014

        LOL Ok.

  2. DanYiel Teflon November 12, 2014

    I actually like his sound & I’m check’n for a few singles!!

  3. Slay_Hive November 12, 2014

    I Love his song Jealous. His numbers are better than what I would have predicted. I mean, just look a TinFLOPshe. She had a semi-hit and debuted with 19k but she’s suppose to be the new Beyonce??…anyways congrats…i guess lmao

    • Mark111 November 12, 2014

      Leave it to the pest to bring up the Queen. Queen roach that is.

      • Slay_Hive November 12, 2014

        Leave it to you to be pressed about it 😉 and that’s Queen Bey to you hun

      • FAF November 12, 2014

        When u bring up Ciara in every post like she didn’t s*** on Aaliyah in dancing getting a Grammy am writing her own music.. And now about to have her tea spilled in a lifetime documentary to her. Didn’t want released for that fact

      • FAF November 12, 2014

        When u bring up Ciara in every post like she didn’t s*** on Aaliyah in dancing getting a Grammy am writing her own music.. And now about to have her tea spilled in a lifetime documentary that her parents Didn’t want released for that fact

      • BeyRihLiyah November 12, 2014

        @FAF your so PRESSED!!!!!!!!!!
        1.ciara doesn’t even s*** on nobody especially Aaliyah flopara has been the game for 10 years and she still hasn’t outsold Aaliyah flopara worldwide sales is 7 mil while Aaliyah’s u.s. album sales are 8.1 mil a remind you that is just her u.s sales

        2.what grammy does Ciara have? last time I checked that was Missy’s Grammy Ciara pathetic ass doesn’t even have a grammy on her own brag about Ciara writing her own music is a self drag maybe ci-t***** should pay other people to write her music maybe it finally would top the charts

        4.what tea is about to be spilled about Aaliyah? she only has one scandal and that happened 20 years ago so people already know about that and also how is her business going to be exposed when no one who was close with her is involved in the biopic lol and atleast she has a movie ci-flop want even get a e true Hollywood story…

      • Brian310 November 13, 2014

        Ciara ain’t slaying Aaliyah in anything because her album sales are lacking, she doesn’t have a future in acting like Aaliyah did, she doesn’t have a versatile voice like Aaliyah and her music isn’t acclaimed like her.

    • BeyRihLiyah November 12, 2014

      right that was an insult tunafish isn’t even on FLOP-Ara’s level let alone Slayonce’

      • FAF November 12, 2014

        Nobody in your avatar or username for sure fagggg 😆

  4. Britney Stan November 12, 2014

    Death the music industry is such a flop.

  5. BeyRihLiyah November 12, 2014

    who? another FLOP for 2014

  6. Beysus November 12, 2014

    Ugh these album sales man…

  7. LB November 12, 2014

    I’m sorry but how does Beyonce factor into this wannabe thug failed Justin BieberFlake experiment flop?

    Leave it to the hive to bring that thing that photoshops its instagram pics in stories that have nothing to do with it.

  8. LB November 12, 2014

    Is it really pressed about Tinashe though when Tinashe has got a far superior body of work that its fav?

    Let’s not forget Tinashe didn’t need Kelly, Lesania, and the other one to front load her career

    • Mark111 November 12, 2014

      They’re bitter cause Tin can actually write and that she’s everything Beyonce tries SO hard to be. Ya know, light skin, long hair, slim nose and all that jazz. lol

      • LB November 12, 2014

        SCREAMING!!!! They are so pressed Tinashe is getting rav reviews for doing something Beyonce can’t do, release amazing music.

        Screaming at them threatened by Tinashe that they have to bring her up in posts that have nothing to do with her.

    • Big Boy November 12, 2014

      Oh you mean the way RihDome needs the Carter’s.

      • LB November 12, 2014

        Remember those other flops the Carter’s signed? Yep they are proof The Carters need Rihanna more than she needs them.

        Now about Check on it? Remember when that mess of a ratchet ghetto construction noise pollution weapon of mass destruction flopped off the billboard charts faster than Pretty Hurts, that Beyonce couldn’t live the titties of Destiny’s Child?

        Ya, she needed Kelly and Lesania to launch her what would have been a miserable excuse of a career.

      • Mark111 November 12, 2014

        The Cheaters did nothing for Rihanna. JAY Z signed her and LA Riad made her a breakout star and RIHANNA having a era for hits did the rest.

  9. Slay_Hive November 12, 2014

    Why are the navy so pressed about me mentioning Beyonce? The same Beyonce who doesn’t have to show her flat ass and tits on instagram and garners 20 Million followers. 😉

    • Mark111 November 12, 2014

      But she had to photoshop her huge ass thunder thighs to gain a gap.

      • LB November 12, 2014


      • Slay_Hive November 12, 2014

        Rihanna should take notes and photoshop that forehead, nose, and bubble lips. Maybe then she’ll attract seven million more followers and close that gap 😉

      • LB November 12, 2014

        Maybe if she stopped photoshopping, people might watch her concerts on HBO

      • Slay_Hive November 12, 2014

        What does photoshop have to do with HBO dear? People would rather pay to see Bey’s beauty and talent LIVE. Check those tour receipts 😉

  10. LB November 12, 2014

    No but she has to photoshop her instagram pics for what, a thigh gap LMAO HAHAHAHAHAHA THE SHADE WRITES ITSELF

  11. LB November 12, 2014

    And are we bragging about instagram followers now when you pest were saying they don’t matter? The hypocrisy LMAO

  12. Slay_Hive November 12, 2014

    Hun nobody is worried about TinFLOPshe. Has she even reached 20k albums sold yet?? kiii So much hype for her album yet no one wants to purchase. 🙁 and DEATH @ Beyonce “trying” so hard to be what she was naturally born with “light skin”. Rihanna is the one that should want a slim nose.

  13. Slay_Hive November 12, 2014

    “Tinashe is getting rav reviews for doing something Beyonce can’t do, release amazing music.”

    But Beyonce is the one with an 85 on metacritic.. kii

  14. LB November 12, 2014

    Honey, you’re pressed to the gods about Tinashe who writers her own music that you had to mention her in a post that has got nothing to do with her so you can prop up your fav who crops up her thighs for a gap

  15. Slay_Hive November 12, 2014

    Pressed to the gods by Tinashese? kii No hun. I just read an article that said she was the new Beyonce and I didn’t agree with it. I think it’s cute that she writes her own music tho. Hopefully she can get a few hits, have longevity, sold out tours and sale more than 19k 😉

  16. LB November 12, 2014

    Keep telling yourself that babe, we can see through the Mount Fuji volcanic ash steam beaming out of your forehead.

    Just like Beyonce’s photoshop instagram pics, you’re not fooling anybody.

  17. Slay_Hive November 12, 2014

    Death @ me being the one “steamed” but you and your sidekick are pressed and ranting because I mentioned Beyonce. the irony.. chile BYE 😀

  18. Realest November 12, 2014

    It’s the same tired Rihanna and Beyonce gays going back and forth on every post. I hope yall have real lives outside of hour obsession over strangers.

  19. TheElusiveLamb November 12, 2014

    That’s better than what I expected, so good for him. 🙂

  20. CherylSoldierr November 12, 2014

    Why does lovebottom always appear out of nowhere to mention beyonce? Lol.
    His album is really good. Much better than any trash that usher released this year. These numbers were expected so I don’t see why ppl are dragging.

  21. Skyfall November 12, 2014

    These #s are good for him.

    • CherylSoldierr November 12, 2014

      He did more than jlo w half the promo and career length.

      • Skyfall November 12, 2014

        Yasss, I wonder why no one is checking for her even though she’s everywhere all the time

  22. #TeamTinashe Stan “Aquarius” In Stores Now November 12, 2014

    I like the song “Jealous” but he’s overdoing the push for the single with the remakes and all. The music industry is in a punishing, terrible state right now in terms of sales.

    And why the HELL is my QUEEN, Tinashe being brought up? Do y’all want me to DRAG you today or nah? …… Actually, quite frankly, I LOVE it when y’all are pressed, hey atleast she’s on your minds…… let’s keep it that way.

    NowPlaying: “Do Not Disturb” by Teyana Taylor. SHE KILLED this! Addicted.

    • Slay_Hive November 12, 2014

      Oh I’m not pressed at all. I was just mentioning how she had a huger hit that Nick Jonas and only debuted with 19k. Which also made me think of that article that compared her to Beyonce. Didn’t agree with it and stated my opinion. tis all 🙂

      • #TeamTinashe Stan “Aquarius” In Stores Now November 12, 2014

        Ok that’s cool but how come I had a HONEST but TRUE opinion about Beyonce you and the other stans were quick to get mad?

        And do you really think Nick Jonas is a fresh new comer? He still has a supportive Jonas Brothers fans that will support everything he does. He has the most upper leverage than Tinashe.

      • Slay_Hive November 12, 2014

        What” honest but true” opinion are you referring to? I don’t recall. and yes Nick has a fan base from Jonas brothers, but I would have thought , with all the bragging you did about 2 on, that Tinashe would have debuted with more albums sold than Ciara.

    • BeyRihLiyah November 12, 2014

      shut the fuccck up this Jonas kid did tinaflop a favor because no one is checking for that bitttch he’s making her relevant and DEATH at him outselling her

      • #TeamTinashe Stan “Aquarius” In Stores Now November 12, 2014

        You clearly are! 🙂

      • FAF November 12, 2014

        What will make you possibly think that when body party after 10 years in the game charted at higher than 2on

  23. DTG November 12, 2014

    Rihanna is a funny looking talentless, tone deaf mutant w**** who needed a combination of Chris Brown beating her within an inch of her life, cheap and petty marketing stunts and giving head to every rapper/producer she works with in order to even half that stale rotten piece of career that she does. It’s hysterical that this extraterrial can only barely go platinum and that it takes her damn year a year to do it.

    • Skyfall November 12, 2014

      You’re not funny and you look really pathetic.

      Ps. Rihanna was already slaying during GGGB era so your ignorant rant is null and void.

  24. MisdamenorFan November 12, 2014

    Anyone checking for Broke with Hood Rat Tastes sales?

  25. Skyfall November 12, 2014

    Aquarius >>> Souled Out >>> Beyoncé

    This is just the truth, Tinahse released the better body of music, as well as Jhené Aiko. Beyonces album was a little underwhelming as I felt “4” was a better album.

    • #TeamTinashe Stan “Aquarius” In Stores Now November 12, 2014


      • BeyRihLiyah November 12, 2014

        FLOPQUARIUS IS GOOD but its also forgettable considering no one bought them except for tinashe and her family hahahahah

    • CherylSoldierr November 12, 2014

      Girl then unapologetic MUST be wayyyy below

      • Skyfall November 12, 2014

        I’m talking about albums released by females in late 2013-2014

  26. Theman November 12, 2014

    A pointy nose does not make u attractive.. Rihanna is beautiful.. Where are u going with that. A certain someone had something or another tweaked.. Rih’s nose is fine. U sound like a hater..

  27. Slay_Hive November 12, 2014


    BEYONCE 85>>> Aquarius 79>>>> Sould Out 75 😉

    I won’t even mention sales 🙂

    • CherylSoldierr November 12, 2014

      Gurl stopppppppppp lol

    • Skyfall November 12, 2014

      Lies, the hive loves to deflate other artist.

      Beyonce – 85
      Souled Out – 81
      Aquarius – 81

      • Yeah I said It November 12, 2014

        Um no babe. He is correct. They have been updated since more reviews have came in.

      • Skyfall November 12, 2014


      • Slay_Hive November 12, 2014

        NO you are a lie. I just got those numbers off of metacritic. More critics must have reviewed their albums and decreased their score. 😉

      • Yeah I said It November 12, 2014

        @Skyfall. Try

        *Rolls eyes*

  28. Yeah I said It November 12, 2014

    So you’re telling all slay_hive has to do is mention Beyonce briefly and he has the two old pressed Rihanna queens rallying around him as usual. *Rolls eyes*

  29. Skyfall November 12, 2014

    Who cares about sales, it’s about MUSIC and but if course your whir ship and revolve your life around Beyonce so of course you’d think her music is better than everybody’s. 21 scored a 74 or 76 or something like that and she has the best selling album of the 21st century does that make her album bad or worse because “Critics” gave it a lower score. Besides Critcs have know to be bias towards Beyonce.

    • Yeah I said It November 12, 2014

      Bye Felicia. If critics were so biased towards Beyonce, she would have had universal acclaim before now. You people and your excuses.

      And 21 is not great. Beyonce is better. Its not surprising it only got generally positive reviews. 19 slays it.

      • Skyfall November 12, 2014

        You missed the entire point regardless of what the “critics” score the GP opinion is what truly matters. 21 got lower scores than Bey one album has barley sold 3.4/.5 million and the other sold more than in the UK alone. So are you telling me 21 is trash even though it outsold everyone’s fav.

      • Yeah I said It November 12, 2014

        @Skyfall. Lmao I got the point and you contradicted yourself. How can you come to a conclusion about quality based on sales. Yet say its about the music. ‘bestSELLING album’. Yet sales don’t matter? Sales =\= quality. Make up your mind what you’re arguing. There some flop albums out there that are much better than majority if albums to sell over 1 million, let alone better than 21.

      • Yeah I said It November 12, 2014

        And no I didnt say 21 was trash.

    • Slay_Hive November 12, 2014

      LOL of course it’s about the music. I was just showing whose album is rated higher. Since you want to state your opinion on who’s album is better. Critics>>> Your opinion.
      I’ve also told you once before I don’t worship Beyonce sweetheart. I am only a fan and listen to several different artists and genres. I’m guessing since you have a pic of Rihanna and turn into a lunatic whenever someone shades her, that means you worship Rihanna? Funny how you say critics are bias towards Beyonce, how so? What are they to gain by kissing her ass?

      • Skyfall November 12, 2014


  30. Skyfall November 12, 2014

    And death at you clinging to critics, remember when you tried to shade Rihanna when I said critics have already praised her voice proven her vocal abilities and you dismissed it… But NOW critics are important if it’s benifitial to Beyonce

    • Slay_Hive November 12, 2014

      The reason I shaded Rihanna is because not many critics are praising those pitchy struggle vocals. I’ve read plenty.. BYE

  31. Sherry November 12, 2014

    His album will probably be a slow burner. He has to reintroduce himself to the public and shake off that tween Jonas Bros image! I love his voice, music and PENISSS!!!

    • BeyRihLiyah November 12, 2014

      bittttch shut the f*** up

  32. Sherry November 12, 2014

    Oh my God Jesus of Nazareth you all will turn anything into a Beyoncé v Rihanna post! 😆

    • BeyRihLiyah November 12, 2014

      why is your old ugly ass here? biiiitch go collect your retirement check to take care of yours kids whorrrrre

    • Sherry November 12, 2014

      Is that all you’ve got? You must be a 12 year old queen. Don’t get dragged all up and down this post, puta. 😉

      • BeyRihLiyah November 12, 2014

        bitttch you don’t want to rumble with me

  33. Skyfall November 12, 2014

    The GP (including myself) mostly agrees the 19 is better than 21.

    But 21 had a 76 score
    And 19 had a 68 score.

    Critics opinion DONT matter the gp does

  34. Yeah I said It November 12, 2014

    But if you’re going to read, you have to come with firm receipts. Not your personal opinion. Because music taste is SUBJECTIVE. How can you talk about the ‘GP’ when you have not spoken to the GP in its entirety. The only way you can back up an argument is with stats, but you just said its not about sales LOL. You’re contradicting yourself.

    • Skyfall November 12, 2014

      Most people on this site, twitter, people at my school and from other post online people seem to generally care for 19 more than 21. Even though 19 had a lower score it is liked more.

      • Yeah I said It November 12, 2014

        Thats fine I agree but still people use critics because it is a way of backing up your argument. You cant just sit there and say ‘X is a better album than Y’. Well you can but why the f**** should someone care about your opinion when they disagree?

  35. Navy Nick November 12, 2014

    Honestly, people don’t know much about his music….. Let me tell u tho, this cd is FIRE!!!! I’m def a Nick Jonas fan!

    • ForThe2015 November 12, 2014

      Yeah because you’re a f******.

  36. Stephy Tha Lambily November 12, 2014

    He so handsome.

  37. cocobutta November 13, 2014

    Sips my glass of southern comfort and lemonade next to Timberlake and giggles.

    “Bish Not even a Jo Bro with a hot body can execute your blueprint”. “Now watch a b1tch run back to pop”.

    The true test for me is to find out if he was telling the truth about R&B being “his true self” when album no.2 comes.

  38. MISHKA November 13, 2014

    Congrats to Nick!

    I’m glad the only talented Jonas is finally trying to make it on his own.

    Nowadays, embracing urban (read black) culture is the only way to make it to the scene for dem white people. I commend him for doing just what the doctor ordered to Justin Timberlake, Robin Thicke and Justin Bieber before him.

  39. Biting Truth November 13, 2014

    LOL@”commendable.” This clown has been everywhere for the past few months, appropriating black music…trying to reinvent himself as a wannabe “s** symbol” taking ridiculous body shots…pandering to girls and gays…etc., etc.

    But he only does 30-40k? LMAO! What kind of nonsense is THAT? He may as well put back on the purity ring, sweaters made by grandma and take back up with his brothers to reform that cheesy group he came from. Solo Nick ain’t happening.

  40. JOHNVIDAL November 13, 2014

    Why is it that Sam reports about first week sales in some cases and he doesn´t in some others? I don´t know how many cpies one of his faves, Luke James, did for example. Or Jessie J? How many? How many copies did JLo sell after the first week? You know, the way he reported about Mariah´s sales day after day and week after week?
    Guys admit it: music industry is dead and the normal thing now is not even reaching at least 100,000 (which was a big flop 2 or 3 years ago). Now the normal thing is doing less than 50,000 copies. Mariah´s numbers this year don´t even look that bad now (not that she needs anything anymore), without promo and after 4 years missing and no hit, she did ok for 2014 standards 🙂

  41. Lesania May 20, 2020

    Sorry, but my name is Lesania and I didn’t know there was someone else with that name. Who is “Lesania”?
