    I hope around 160k. But I really have a GUT feeling thats getting me a bit worried that he MIGHT just get under 100k. I really hope not, I predicted that the Black Eyed Peas would get under 100k for there new album and they didn't so hopefully I'm wrong and he gets around 160-200k, but if Maxwell could go platinum with an album that was all for adults, then surely Kells can.

    Aiight y'all, time for some Math 101. Hidden Content

    'Untitled' got 115K 1st week sales. That was with 2 singles ('Supaman High' - promotional) and 'Number One'. Opinions were mixed to negative regarding 'SH', and good for 'No.1'. However, if y'all recall for a period there we didnt think that the album was going to be released so that messed up quite alot of things, especially for folk who dont really follow R. Kelly.

    This time around, we've had a very successful lead single. Great video, great performances, so already the 'word of mouth effect' mentioned by Maxxx has got alot of positive momentum. Based on that intangible variable, we can say:

    1st Week Sales 'Love Letter' > 1st Week Sales 'Untitled'

    Overall, this project has been steady, strong and consistent - so this has definitely got the potential to do very good numbers. Quite a few people out there are considering this 'The Comeback of R. Kelly' (not that he's been anywhere) so that in itself will cause a stir, and generate excitement.

    So based on that brief analysis, Id say that 175K will be a realistic and more than achievable figure - that equates to a 65% increase on 'Untitled' which is very good. However, this album is capable of doing more.

    200K, would be great and again is achievable, and not only that, that is a solid foundation to eventually go Platinum. Cuz if you start with 200K that is like the green light for further push on the project.

    250K would be huge success - no doubt.

    300K would be phenomenal, cuz that's like the equivalent to 500/600K for any other artist considering the residual animosity some (including the media) still feel towards Rob.

    So, Im going for (a slightly conservative) 175K - anything above that, we're onto a numbers winner cuz we've already got a winner in terms of album musical quality.

    Good eye on this one. And with the Soul Train, the heels of Epic, the amazing video, the Christmas remix, the homage to MJ, and the other little internet presences he's been doing, and not to mention it's ability to reach across the age gap... I'm gonna say around 200,000. But I think this is gonna be the kind of long growth album, as some older RnB fans get word of it and go get their copy.

    And the Christmas song is gonna be popular.

    And I believe your absolutely correct. I think when the older r&b fans really hear other songs off this album besides when a woman loves, then the more of them will buy it. Everybody hasn't heard this CD yet but when they do, they will be amazed.

    I"ll say 143,000 in it's first week. And thats good.

    So is that only from stores and not including online sales?

    It should be in the same line as that 225k if it's #1 on iTunes for 2 days. How could that MJ disc sell more copies?? smh Or this is excluded for digital sales??
