Chart Check [Billboard 200]: Ne-Yo Misses Top 10 For First Time Ever With ‘Good Man’

Published: Friday 22nd Jun 2018 by Rashad

As a songwriter and performer, R&B crooner Ne-Yo‘s run of back-to-back hits in the noughties almost knew no equal.  Debuting atop the Billboard 200 with his debut LP, ‘In My Own Words’ (2006), his presence on the album charts in the decade that followed – despite varying degrees of success – still saw each of the 5 projects that succeeded ‘Words’ premiere in the tally’s top 10.

His latest effort, ‘Good Man’ (released June 8th), is unfortunately unable to boast the same.

Kicked off by a number of teaser tunes before seeing its title track and the Bebe Rexha/Stefflon Don-assisted ‘Push Back’ named its official launching singles, the effort admittedly went to chart battle with little fanfare – especially compared to antecedent albums.

That absent buzz, coupled in a week dominated by news surrounding the releases of Dave Matthews Band and Kid Cudi & Kanye West‘s first joint album respectively, saw ‘Good Man’ pushed back to a much lower entry point on the Billboard 200.  Its debut not only comes as Ne-yo’s first project to miss the top 10 upon its release, but the entire top 30!

        Exactly! The little respect I had for Sam as a journalist/blogger is officially gone! He worships people he doesn’t even know. I would’ve loved to haveseen his reaction when he saw the numbers. ?????. Do better girl!

    So TGJ is gonna ignore the fact that’s the so called First Lady of Music has an album that failed to hit #1

    • JCP June 23, 2018

      The album is her worse album to date. It doesn’t deserve that #1 spot. Very subpar. Can’t wait to see how TGJ spins this.

      • dee June 23, 2018

        I agree. It was definitely his worse album followed by Libra Scale and Non-Fiction.

  4. DIABETES UNBOTHERED June 23, 2018

    So we just gonna ignore how XXX been shitting on Neyo BEFORE AND AFTER DEATH With an old album released months ago?

  5. eric June 23, 2018

    It reached #17 on the r&b chart. It might have come in at the top if everyone who fussed about him doing edm had gone and picked up the album since it’s mostly r&b with some hip-hop and caribbean elements. I constantly have it on repeat. I won’t be surprised though if he goes back to edm where he found more success.

    Artists don’t make big money from album/record sales; they make big money from touring. Artist learn that top 10 music gets them noticed but once they’re music your followers will be ok with & tour for your $. Also B & J’s music & videos are on Tidal & other music platforms so subscribers don’t have to buy their album, we get to hear/see videos as part of our subscription. And they get paid every time we play their music…and fill stadium seats….Economics 101 people.

    Ne yo is the greatest R&B singer of the are.. His lyrics are profound. I love his new album, but he really needs to kick it up a notch. Like many famous singers with unforgettable voices, from Sinatra to Ray Charles, every song begins to sound alike. He is playing it to o safe.
