‘Heaux Tales’ – the latest entry in the discographic story of prized R&B songstress Jazmine Sullivan – arrived January 8, coming as her first body of work released since 2015’s ‘Reality Show.’
Housing the critically acclaimed cuts ‘Pick Up Your Feelings,’ ‘Lost One,’ ‘Girl Like Me’ (featuring GRAMMY-winning singer H.E.R.), and more, the 14-track conceptual project pounced to the top of multiple real-time sales tallies despite minimal promotion (as we reported here).
Now at the midway point of its inaugural sales week, industry analysts have lifted the lid on their official prediction of how those sales (alongside streaming figures) will tally by the end of that tracking period. And, if the data is to be believed, fans apparently couldn’t wait to get their hands on new music from the diva!
