August Alsina blindsided fans with the announcement his long-awaited third album, ‘The Product III: StateofEmergency,’ would arrive on digital shelves June 26.
Packed with a whopping 27 tracks, awareness raised for the effort (which included 5 of its tracks released in the week preceding its release) was overshadowed by reports of his one-time affair with Jada Pinkett-Smith. As such, the minimally-promoted project peaked at #48 on the Billboard 200 with his lowest first-week sales to date.
A state of emergency indeed, peruse of the updated edition of the chart sees the LP nowhere in sight.
After debuting at #48 on the Billboard 200 just two weeks ago, ‘Product III’ made a whopping 142-spot drop to #190 the next week.
This week, in what would’ve been its third on the tally, the effort has vanished from the chart. The two-week tenancy would mark his shortest stay on the chart to date.
