Predictions Are In: August Alsina’s ‘State of EMERGEncy’ Set to Sell…

Published: Wednesday 1st Jul 2020 by Rashad

After a lengthy spell on the bench, August Alsina sent fans into a state of shock when he unexpectedly announced ‘StateofEmergency’ – his official third album.

Released June 26 (just a week after being announced), the LP came as his first studio effort in nearly 5 years and first off the Def Jam imprint (after a highly publicized fall out with the label).  Packed with a whopping 27 songs, ‘StateofEmergency’ was preceded by the release of housed cuts ‘Rounds,’ ‘NOLA,’ and ‘Sincerely’ and boasts names like Yo Gotti, Tink, Lil Wayne, and Juicy J on its list of features.

Yet, despite immediately shooting to #1 on iTunes R&B charts (where it sits at writing), the minimal warning ahead of the set’s unveiling has arguably worked to its detriment if industry analyst predictions are to be believed.

Look inside to see just how many units they anticipate the album will shift by the end of its inaugural tracking week.

August Alsina’s ‘The Product III: StateofEmergency’

First Week Sales Prediction (SPS):  <19,000

First Week Predicted Billboard 200 Placement:  <20

 

If the prediction rings true, ‘The Product III: StateofEmergency’ will not only bring Alsina’s lowest first week sales to date but will also be his first official album to miss the top 20.

Over halfway through the tracking week (at writing), history has repeatedly proven ‘it ain’t over til it’s over.’  With a jam-packed week of promo, including heightened attention sent his way in light of a recent admission to a romantic affair with married mentor Jada Pinkett Smith (click here to read more), there is a chance he’ll see a sales surge.

      Tea doesn’t guarantee sales. No ones checking for new music from August Alsina. He’s a has been.

    • C**-ila July 1, 2020

      It’s better than I expected I liked his music back in 2015 but haven’t heard of him for a few years.
      he used to make good music i’ll listen to this album and check if he still got it.-

    Jay z and beyonce should have an open marriage

    Beyonce has never been with any man apart from camel-z .
    I feel sorry for her.

    Beyonce needs to be with a new younger man.

      That’s your perverted fantasy for a married woman because you don’t understand real love. You may never experience marriage but don’t put your promiscuous filthy lifestyle on other respectable people.

      • High Price July 1, 2020

        Lmao his whole damn fantasy.

      • C**-ila July 1, 2020

        “promiscuous filthy lifestyle” is Jay’s middle name…unfortunately her fans may try to deny it but it’s obvious Becky wasn’t the first and all her family knows it. She only “talked” about Becky ’cause the Elevator scandal made it impossible for them to deny there were problems inside their marriage.
        She is a beautiful and intelligent woman i don’t see why don’t she get a divorce..

    Why didn’t y’all include the pure sales numbers? lol. This is why he revealed the stuff with Jada..and it still didn’t work

  4. Misty Knight July 1, 2020

    He’s a flop. I hope Jada drops her wallet on him. He’ll be CRUSHED.

  5. Jj July 1, 2020

    Now we all know who he wanted kissing all over his tattoos

    This album is straight fire. If people don’t like it they are straight haters and followers. Congratulation on your first independent project. I pray for much success for you and ignore the haters and celebrate your success.

    August Alsina’s Album is better than any album I have heard thus far. Y’all haters are jealous cause you wish you were him. Jada f***** him because she knows who he is. Meanwhile, she would never give any of y’all a second look. He looks better tha you. Is a better person than you and he voice is amazing. That is why Jada wanted a piece of him. And he is still in a good place.
