    if you bring out shitty albums your going to get shitty first week sales...

    385 is just because its r. kelly he didnt get the other 115,000 because he didnt have 2nd single before the album came out (which is surprising) and because sales of CD's are kinda bad anyway...

    if he would of had a single released as soon as "i'm a Flirt" showed signs of falling off the charts he would have done a lot more

    i hope he knows that he needs to release good music no matter what the genre...

    if the Jive does their job write then "Double Up" can still sell...but judging by other albums it won't happen.



    385,000 is still good considering the allegations he has against him and all the hate he receives everytime he releases an album

    i said he would do 300,000 to 400,000. BTW

    thats a good question.

    i have heard stories of this "still un-confirmed by soundscan" number as being TOTAL but some think that it DOES NOT have the digital stuff...................

    The Soundscan numbers do include digital downloads of the entire album in the US from officially recognised digital retailers such as iTunes, Napster etc.

    The 395k was from Hits Daily Double's album chart which is usually fairly comparable give or take a bit to the Soundscan figures used to compile the Billboard charts. The Soundscan numbers came up with 386k which will pretty much now stand as the official opening week figure

    I think they (Jive/Kelly) already knew the Same Girl was going to be the next single.....I kinda think that maybe Kells didn't want the single/video to jump off until after the cd came out because he probably didn't want anyone saying the jump in sales were because of Usher's influence...IMO...funny that once the cd was released now things are on and poppin with the video.

    That's an interesting angle. Hadn't thought of that. There could be something to it.

    good point, probably true aswell...but they messed up cus unless they do something different with the single i doubt it will sell like it would have done immediately, like the whitney and mariah song

    As much as I'm not impressed by these numbers, I'm still optimistic about the second week and so on. Who knows what will happen after this week, but we do KNOW that the first weeks, if we put it in perspective to his previous albums, especially given the promotion, this opening week isn't anything we should be candy happy about.
