The Predictions Are In! Bruno Mars & Anderson .Paak’s ‘An Evening with Silk Sonic’ Set to Sell…

Published: Wednesday 17th Nov 2021 by Sam

After much ado, Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak have unlocked their long-awaited album ‘An Evening with Silk Sonic.’

The collaborative project was preceded by Billboard Hot 100 #1 ‘Leave The Door Open’, as well as ‘Skate’ and current top 10 hit ‘Smokin Out The Window.’

Mars and Paak have also been working the promotional trail, making a number of high-profile stops along the way.

So, how are the first week numbers looking? The answer awaits below…

According to Hits Daily Double, the dynamic duo are on-track to debut with 102,000 units (sales plus streaming).

Typically, in the current climate, such a sum would have placed the pair in contention for the top spot on the Billboard 200.

However, with Taylor Swift dominating the charts with ‘Red (Taylor’s Version)’ (to the tune of over 500,000), the #1 position is accounted for.

Still, solid numbers.

        They’ll still sweep the rnb Grammy categories in 2023. Them an Summer will get the most rnb nominations but They’ll win because they also played instruments and produced on their album.

    They took too long to release. It shoulda dropped while LTDO was hot. This is an underperformance. They sold less than Summer Walker.

    The epitome of white privilege. How the hell you release the same album redone almost 10 years later and still pull these numbers? Goes to show you white artists will sell regardless of what they release and that’s because majority of the population in America is white.

      By your logic, all white artists would sell and sell like this. Don’t be stupid. Plus, thank the “white people” for the charts being filled with all the same generic Hip-Hop constantly as whites account for 90% of the record-buying public and 70% of all R&B and Hip-Hop sales.

      In her defense, Taylor never stripped, twerked, pole-danced, changed pronouns, sang in bikinis, overdosed, licked donuts, pulled up on somebody, or veered off the script Conservative Middle America wants: fall in love, swoon over it in song, eff, call it giving your heart away in song, breakup, lament it in 5 albums with Keane’s morose instrumentals, marry, gush about it on talk shows and tour and merch, have kids, reminisce youth on 5 more albums. 😂

    Wrong timing. The album should’ve arrived much earlier when Leave the Door Open was hot.

    Album was dope but too short. The musicality was top notch and it is needed whether people think its a flop or not. Because, the alternative aint good enough.. 8.5 out of 10

    • J November 17, 2021

      Still flopped. They waited 8 months to late

    Such a great album but this goes to show you what happens when you wait too long to release an album. This album should have released back in June/ July latest August when LTDO was hot. Bruno especially should have known better. If the album wasn’t done then they should have held the lead single until it was done. Artist and labels don’t understand full executions now in days. Sorry fellas this could have sold at least 100k/200k more had yall released it when the hype was at a fever pitch.

    • J November 17, 2021

      They always try to extend the impact by waiting longer and releasing during Thanksgiving season when in all actuality they should have released this short standard edition back in the summer and a deluxe for the holidays. They could have even added a holiday song on there. Missed opportunity.

  8. Champ November 17, 2021

    Numbers aren’t surprising. They let the momentum die. Leave The Door Open was hot for months but the album was nowhere to be found. Anyway, the album is great. I just wish it had a good 2 or 3 more songs. Bruno can come across as cheesy sometimes but he can sing, perform and make damn good music effortlessly.

  9. SNF November 17, 2021

    I cant wait for yall to report on Taylor’s made up sales in the future… Bc aint no fkn way 😆😆😆

        You really think streaming and sales are still completely real huh? In 2021 LMAO

        Dream on

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 November 17, 2021

        Then why doesn’t everyone have the same “sales?” That’s the paradox.

    • J November 17, 2021

      The Payola is real 💅💅💅

      But there are a lot of basic white b****** out there TBH

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 November 17, 2021
