    I finally got my copy yesterday from HMV. Surprisingly they actually had Write Me Back out on the new releases section (they didn't when Untitled and Love Letter were released), and there were only a couple of copies left, whether that's because it got undershipped or because it had sold more than the others on the shelf I don't know.

    75k is embarrassing/flop. Let's just admit it. He even sold 110k first week with Untitled and he had no promotion or exposure. WMB will be lucky to reach 200k in total sales. Very sad considering this is already his most critically acclaimed album in his entire career.

    i don't think its embarrassing. Usher, who is more geared to pop (aka a larger audience) - and whether ur a fan or not remains popular, climax was a number one song....LOOKING 4 MYSELF sold like 125K out the gate.
    Justin Bieber who is the current act filling that Timberlake/nsync/backstreet/britney/pop space sold like 340k? sales are down in general...
    I hope this record will have legs, it deserves to shine. it has great songs that deserve to be singles and get a lot of airplay. we'll see, what reviews confirm tho, is that he's delivered another timeless record, and good music endures.
    when R Kelly decides he wants to make a record he knows everybody and their momma wants to buy, he will.

    Does the 75k include pre-orders from itunes? Because they've been showing charts and sales stats for this album for weeks; are they now only including this weeks' sales? Just wondering. I don't really get how it works.

    It doesn't matter to me what Kellz sells. He'll be making music regardless, and after all this time I'd like to see what he can do independent of a label.

    forget about downloads, etc.. bottom line tastes change and people's interest change, however its about the music and even if he doesn't chart i'll always buy and support his work period.

    i don't need the charts or the buying public to tell he is the best.

    i know that 20 year careers in that industry don't grow on trees

    He doesnt have a lot of loyalist (I despise fans), just look at the drop off from Chocolate Factory or Happy People/You Saved Me albums. those are "fans" which are fickled consumers that come & go w/the weather. those who are only on the bandwagon when everyone else is or when it suits them. I refuse to call myself a fan because i'm not. I am a shareholder or a loyal supporter. that simple to me. disgusting to even utter or type out only 75k in a week. its a slap in the face to true artistry & talent. but Kelly is like me. has bad luck yet blessed at the same time. not being able to appear on those shows or the book signings is an enormous blow to promoting this album. I just feel bad all around when I should be happy about a great, ambitious project(s).
