Kehlani fans apparently couldn’t wait to get their hands on her sophomore album, ‘It Was Good Until It Wasn’t.’
The follow-up to 2017’s ‘SweetSexySavage,’ the May 8 released set – preceded by critically acclaimed singles ‘Everybody Business,’ ‘Toxic,’ and ‘FM&U’ – is a 15-track LP that boasts an impressive list of guest stars including Tory Lanez, Jhené Aiko, James Blake, Lucky Daye, and more.
After zooming to #1 on real-time iTunes sales tallies just hours after its unveiling (as we reported here), industry analysts predicted the project would shift 60,000-65,000 units by the end of its inaugural tracking week. Now, reports indicate they were under count by a considerable sum.
Look inside to see ‘It Was Good Until It Wasn’t’s final first week figures.
“…It Was Good Until It Wasn’t debuts with 83,000 equivalent album units. Of that sum, 56,000 are in SEA units (equating to 74.68 million on-demand streams of the album’s songs), 25,000 are in album sales (aided by more than 20 merchandise/album bundles) and 1,000 in TEA units.”
Opening at #2 on the refreshed Billboard 200, Kehlani’s latest is not only the highest charting album of her career to date, but also her biggest sales week ever. The numbers best the singer-songwriter’s previous high – 2017’s ‘SweetSexySavage’ (which debuted and peaked at No. 3 with 58,000 units).
