    I think last time out we got 156k, so Im lookin' for an improvement - 175K would reflect that but a real great figure would be 200K, but that's being pretty optimistic.

    Im gonna punt for a rather conservative 160K.

    i'll go with 150k as well. even though LL didnt have as much promotion as we would like, it seems it has gotten more than WMB if thats possible. did he do Fallon before or after the LL release? I still dont have confidence enough ppl know the album is coming out. needless to say I would be pleasantly suprised if it did go for 175k the first week. lets see (& hope) they learned from the marketing mistakes of '10.

    I don't think its been promoted as well as Love Letter (so far), plus LL came out during the christmas period, so I think it'll do a little less.... Around 130/140k

    Maybe they should step up on the radio advertisements for the album. I guess that's really the only way that he can reach his mature fan base that don't get online and try to find out whats the release date to his albums. Notice how when his quality of music went down a bit his sales went down also From TP3 490k to Double Up 386k (which we all expected to do huge numbers because of the hype for it) to Untitled 115k I believe to a better quality album LL 156k. Now out of all those people who purchased LL I don't think any of them was disappointed with what they bought. So I expect this one to increase in first week sales. I'm not gonna do a prediction because I don't wanna be disappointed. I'm just posting this to give you guys a little of what we all should expect. Anything lower than 150k would be the labels fault. Another thing they actually have to ship albums this time. They always under shipping his albums. Debut would be top 3 atleast though thats my chart prediction and number 1 R&B album

    Promotion is a mess (as usual) but he will do fine first week! 150k, hopefully it's way more that that though! We got R. Kelly weekend on centric coming, Fallon, and Today show after the album drops plus the video for "Feelin' Single" so the first month will be covered! Plus hopefully retailers don't mess things up this time!

    I love the optimism. But i hate this game with a passion. Back in the day, when he had the huge sales, I used it as a bragging point when talking up the boy Kels to others, besides the fact that his music was amazing.
    Sales are down across the board, whether its the pop sensation of the moment or whatever.
    I hope he sells half a million first week :-). I just hate speculating, cause ultimately all i know for sure is I will put my hard earned money down for it. I hope a whole lot of other fans do too.
