August Alsina’s ‘StateofEmergency’ Slips Out of Billboard 200 in Week 3

Published: Wednesday 22nd Jul 2020 by Rashad

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.

Details inside:

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.

Your thoughts?

    When spilling tea doesn’t translate to sales! SN TGJ, what is the purpose of these type of posts besides to bash the artists that you choose to talk about?

    it’s not bashing if it’s true news right?

    i mean if they can report the good news, i suppose they can report the bad too

    Who’s surprised? No one was checking for August Alsina anyway.

    Poor August. And to think 5-6 years ago he was being tapped as the next big r&b male. He’s talented and I hate that this scandal has turned his career into this. He should’ve just put all of this in a song instead of that interview

    I don’t think that is a shock to anyone. Sadly all of this talking he did about his entanglement did nothing to make people focus on the music.
