Final Numbers Are In: ‘Birds of Prey’ Soundtrack Sold…

Published: Wednesday 19th Feb 2020 by Rashad

Much like its parent film released on February 7, the ‘Birds of Prey’ soundtrack fell prey to an underwhelming commercial response despite receiving praise aplenty from critics.

While the movie opened to $33 million (nearly half of the original $55 million sum expected to accompany its debut), its companion album – preceded by singles from hitmakers Megan Thee Stallion & Normani (‘Diamonds’), Saweetie (‘Sway with Me’), and Doja Cat (‘Boss B*tch’) – was projected to sell less than 20,000 copies its first week (as we originally reported here). The lack of buzz for the effort was undoubtedly underscored by the poor sales performance of its fore-running singles as none of them impacted the Hot 100.

Now, with its inaugural sales tracking week in its rear view, the ‘Prey’ soundtrack’s first 7 day figures have been unveiled.  Look inside to see where it landed on the refreshed Billboard 200 (published today):


‘Birds of Prey’ Soundtrack

First Week Sales (SPS):  20,000

First Week Sales (Pure):  8,000

First Week Chart Placement:  #23

Barely exceeding industry analyst prediction, ‘Birds’ premiere outside of the top 20 still comes as a loss for the soundtrack given the quantity of star power it packed.

The bomb comes just three months after the rebooted ‘Charlie’s Angels’ all-girl film and soundtrack suffered a similar fate (click here to read more).

        Hey b*tch. Camila Cabello appeared on Mark Ronson’s “Late Night Feelings” album and that album and her collab with him flopped. Camila also appeared on Cashmere Cats “9” album and that flopped, along with the collab with her. Let’s also not forget Camila’s other list of singles that have flopped (more than anyone else from 5H). Camilas flips include:

        -Real Friends (Remix with Swae Lee, didn’t chart)
        -Consequences (didn’t crack top 50 after high budget performance at AMA’s)
        -Mi Persona Favorita
        -Sangria Wine (didn’t chart after high budget performance at billboard awards)
        -Liar (High budget video, didn’t crack top 40)
        -Shameless(High budget video, didn’t crack top 50)
        -Easy (SNL performance, didn’t chart)
        -Living Proof (5 high budget performances, didn’t chart)
        -OMG (didn’t chart)

        Oh and let’s not forget Camila’s inaugural flop “Crying In The Club” which never cracked the top 40 after a high budget video and billboard awards performance. I could go on and on.

        Clarkson I almost fell in the chair 😂🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😜

        Wow she’s doing K. Michelle numbers lol

        @only còck sucker

        Every Camila song u mentioned has sold more than normani’s diamonds and bad to u feat nicki minaj and Arianna Grande

        Can u imagine, a song with nicki and ari on it, didnt chart. Normani curse. 🤮

        Find u with mark Ronson has almost 200 million streams. Lol
        Charted in several countries overseas.

        Crying in the club has sold more than motivation, has more views than motivation, has more streams than motivation.

        The last time normani appeared on the charts was in November 2019.

        It’s been almost 3 months and normani hasnt appeared on the billboard hot 100.

        They are ripping normani to shreds on Twitter thanks to her horrendous NBA performance
        🤭🤭🤭🤭

        She’s done.
        It’s what she deserves.

        Now I see why you’re always trying to convince yourself that Camila is a star…it’s because she has more flops than anyone else from Fifth Harmony 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂🤡

    Nobody cares about this toxic femininity crap but blue checkmark (alleged) feminists on Twitter.

  7. Johny5 February 19, 2020

    FLOPmila is a truly wack artist. She will never fully recover from her blatant racism. People will boycott the corporations that back her upcoming project.

  8. ummmm… yeah, no. February 20, 2020

    but there was no big stars on the album. i hate that they get the flack but ppl just were not interested. what i will say is they put money in the videos which is refreshing.
