The Predictions Are In! H.E.R.’s ‘Back of My Mind’ Set To Sell…

Published: Tuesday 22nd Jun 2021 by Sam

After a unique ascend, H.E.R. finally unwrapped her debut album ‘Back of My Mind’ this week.

The 21-track LP was preceded by the singer’s years on the live circuit and steady building an audience by way of critically acclaimed EPs and single releases.

The unorthodox approach has been proven fruitful for the songbird – who has nabbed multiple GRAMMYs, a Golden Globe, and an Oscar.

With her first full-length body of work here, many are anticipating how/if her preceding success will help the album fare.

Well, wonder no more because the first-week forecast is here.

Join us after the jump…

According to Hits Daily Double, the set is on course to launch with first-week sales of:

[Sales Plus Streaming]
[Pure Sales]


With that, what are…

      Me 2 My Queen 🤣😂 wig off & head off💅🏿 R.I.P to H.E.R🤳🏿

    Smh I’m not surprised HER has released more singles that absolutely had nothing to do with the album and was overexposed. I mean she was deadass on songs I felt weren’t too genuine or authentic other than her collaborations on Skip Marleys Slow Down and Jasmine Girl Like Me. Top of that this debut lacks what caught many of our attention to begin with. Her first two EPS should’ve been the debut album. As I said before too, she’s hailed as the savior of R&B yet – Summer, Ari, Tinashe, Snoh, and Jhene all had better debuts than this musically including Victoria Monet too.

    I was expecting her sales to be low, but yikes…

    she’s good live though. saw her at a festival a couple years back. so maybe touring is where she makes her bag.

    the album could’ve been a lot better, also, tbh. It felt like a compilation of songs and not a cohesive album to me. it would’ve benefitted from an editing eye/ear to trim a lot of the fat.

    Was there promotion? I forgot it was coming out. But goes to show u that NUMBERS DO NOT MATTER. She’s well accomplished further than some of her more “popular” competitors who sell more.

    • Shayla Queen™ 👑 June 22, 2021

      She is no Taylor Swift, you better come correct 💯

      • Holliewuudd June 22, 2021

        Correct, she’s wildly more talented. As evidenced by her work. Where’s Taylor’s Oscar? The folks that matter know her worth, obviously.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 June 22, 2021

        That Oscar was bought. Like all her awards. This non-selling flop album is proof of that.

      • UHoesFunny June 22, 2021

        LOL you just be talking out your dirty ass. What proof do you have to back that statement? That her awards are bought. You don’t, your bum ass just like to troll per usual. The broke dirties always have the most to say. *rolls eyes*

  5. TamarHer June 22, 2021

    Industry plant

  6. jam June 22, 2021

    I am about to buy her album. She is so talented.

    • Shayla Queen™ 👑 June 22, 2021

      You’ll be the only one this week

      • Pat June 22, 2021


  7. Billy Resin June 22, 2021

    Such a boring album.

    • Shayla Queen™ 👑 June 22, 2021

      Such a boring “artist.”

  8. Alex June 22, 2021

    She’s talented but the album is really not it. There are some experimental sounds like “we made it” but the rest of it is simply not good.

  9. 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) June 22, 2021

    😂🤣😂🤣 guess this world ain’t crazy yet💅🏿 numbers proved everything. What a BIG FLOP ASS H O E🤣😂🤣

  11. Farrahs Luggage June 22, 2021

    She literally just said last week that R&B isn’t dead…. 💀 gurrrrrl. Jinxed yourself

  12. Dc June 22, 2021

    Them low sales told y’all she was overrated

  13. Fancy BISH (FCK Maristench, Danzou The Fool & Clarksdump 🤣) 👊🏽💎💋 June 22, 2021

    CHILE, H.E.R. is nothing special lmaaaooooo 🤣 Let’s listen to the REAL, shall we?
    And no one EVERRR WILL lol ❤️🎶🤳🏽💋

  14. Jake June 22, 2021

    Wow I’m not surprised. I was predicting and expecting her to do at least 50k in sales with streaming. These numbers are extremely low and is a clear indication that no one is checking for H.E.R. or it could be that no one knew of her album release, who knows🤔. This is not a good sign for the future of this album. She would need to do some serious promotion. @thatgrapejuice. H.E.R. does not have a Golden Globe. She was nominated for Best Original Song but lost to Diane Warren.

  15. Luther Vandross June 22, 2021

    Those are HORRIBLE sales for someone whose been everywhere. Flop….

  16. Clayne June 22, 2021

    Yikes… well whatever, she has Grammys and an Oscar already lol

    But yikes.

    I was expecting at least 50K…

  17. Aries_heart June 22, 2021

    Absolutely abysmal numbers!!!

    This girl is an industry plant. All of her accolades are purchased. Her music is boring. Her voice is monotone. She’s just not the girl they’re trying to make her out to be. She’s no genius, no prodigy. Just a flop with aggressive management team.

    All the cheating and backhanded tactics didn’t pay off. I wouldn’t be surprised if her label dropped her. They invested A LOT into her career.


    • UHoesFunny June 22, 2021

      Show us the Carfax plz 💀

    • Clarks0o0ñ June 22, 2021

      She’s on the same label with normani, RCA records.

      I knew she was gonna tank the moment she collaborated with chris brown. Infact once I saw the track list of this album, I knew she was gonna tank.

      Anytime an rnb girl does the honorable chris brown collab, their career dies. Perfect examples are

      Ella mai
      Sevy streeter

      Normani is next.
      She gonna do a chris brown collab and that will be the end of her

      • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) June 23, 2021

        Yesssssss, also ciara, Lil’ mama, rita Ora, Jhené Aiko, Ester Dean…. 💅🏿

      • UHoesFunny June 23, 2021

        @marilyn Jhene definitely does well every album drop. So don’t even put her in that category you dumb btch. You just like to talk trash about Black women. You’re scum of the earth 🌎 truly. This blog site is all you’ve got. Enjoy

  18. James June 22, 2021

    Jazmine Sullivan sold more first week with 43k overall and 7k pure sales. These numbers are shocking you would think H.E.R. would at least pull in 50k – 70k.

    • Aries_heart June 22, 2021

      Without half the promo and visibility at that. This just goes to show No ones checking for HER’s dry ass music.

    • Clarks0o00ñ June 22, 2021

      I was expecting her to do 100k
      This girl has won an oscar and Grammy this year alone.

      They marketed her as this ground breaking rnb artist who plays guitar but her music is very generic kehlani ella mai.

      This album had Chris brown and ty dollar sign features. That’s how u know an album is trash

  19. Clarks0o00ñ June 22, 2021

    And yall keep laughing at Camila’s romance album. 🤣🤣.
    Atleast Camila’s debut album hit number 1.

    Those pure sales are so tragic. 5700, this is what indie artists sell.

    Even dua sold more in pure sales, 18k to be exact.

    H.e.r is on the same label with doja, sza and normani.

    Imagine how much normani gonna sell when she drops her album

    • UHoesFunny June 22, 2021

      OH GOD…Here you go, can we not mention that P** of a fcking btch for just one night? I know for certain NOBODY is checking for Cumilla. That’s on bro nem 😹😹😹 but forreal stop bringing her up, we tired of seeing her name. U talk about her more than the press, her Google history is from like 4 weeks ago 💀 LOST CAUSE and btw, PAYOLA and her debut album dropped before streaming was BIG. Tell Camicky to drop an album now. Lawd 😭 we all know it’s gonna FLOP HARD just like that Christmas song did back in 2020 🎅🏽🐎🐎🐎

      • Clarks0o00ñ June 22, 2021

        Gurl, h.e.r is on RCA records just like normani and look at her numbers with all that promo and accolades, now imagine what normani gonna sell with no promo or accolades.

        I cant wait to see them tragic numbers.

  20. UHoesFunny June 22, 2021

    Love H.E.R. but these numbers are indeed shocking to say the least, however I support ppl doing what they love, once you get so bent on the numbers, the fun is gone. Just enjoy living your passions, and getting paid for it. PERIOD. 💕

    • Mother Divine June 22, 2021

      Shocking how? She has no hits. No fanbase. There was no hype surrounding this trash album. I predicted 35k and she didn’t even do that lol.

      • UHoesFunny June 23, 2021

        Exactly! I predicted just as much as you but sheeesh. I didn’t expect numbers to be that low LOL

  21. True Tea June 23, 2021

    Honestly I feel kinda bad because she has made some good songs. No one can argue ‘Best Part’ was a bad & is better than a lot of songs currently on the Hot 100.

    • Elsa June 23, 2021

      Best Part was Daniel Caesar’s song and it came out 5 years ago

  22. 2Dah June 23, 2021

    She sold less than the other rnb girls Ella Mai, Summer Walker, SZA, Jhene and Kehlani. Barely sold more than Brandy, Teyana Taylor, Chloe and Halle. With all her awards and hype, I expected no less than 60k. She’s a fraud and a flop. I tried to tell y’all.

    • UHoesFunny June 23, 2021

      Jhene minds her own fcking business. That’s why she always does so well, and she knows her fan base and they support her whole heartedly. When you mind your business and do what works, you sell. Jhene always does well with her albums. Ppl just gotta know their audience and have an aesthetic

      • 2Dah June 23, 2021

        HER’s issue is the music ain’t consistent. She seems pretentious too and the public doesn’t like that. She’s lauded as this musical prodigy but like someone said her music is generic. Her first EP was wonderful. That’s where she peaked. Everything after that was hit or Miss. How does she play all of these instruments but choose to sing over watered down beats. Where’s the piano, guitar and other instruments she supposedly plays? THEN she has no female collaborations on her album. She worked with Jazmine, Brandy, Ella Mai and Alicia Keys. Where are those songs? She chose Chris Brown and Ty Dollar Sign instead. Make that make sense. She’s one of those girls who believes their own hype. Overrated!!!

    • IUTKH June 23, 2021

      You sound like a hater. H.E.R. Don’t need the sales when she has everything else. Y’all hate real talent!!!

  23. Your Name June 23, 2021

    I’m shocked!!!! As an industry darling she should be pushing bigger numbers. Not Moneybag Yo selling almost the same amount and his album been out for months!

  24. XYZ June 23, 2021

    All this hype…

    The album’s quite boring though…

  25. I Can Have It All June 23, 2021

    I don’t really care about the sales.. but I’ll admit I was not impressed with the album. It’s entirely way too long. She has alot of hidden gems, but for the most part 8-9 songs sound exactly the same. It’s going to be a slow burn of an album, I’m not writing it off as a flop, there’s potential in about 3-4 tracks.

  26. Wayne June 24, 2021

    I’m the biggest H.E.R fan great album must not had ZERO promotion sad as f***.Shr had accomplish alot she deserves more and hopefully she drops another album next year!!!
