    Post Weekly Album Sales - "Blown Away": Week 31 (Alicia Keys #1)

    November 28, 2012

    If we're reading the tea leaves correctly, Alicia Keys' newRCA set, Girl on Fire, should land at #1 next week, shifting somewhere between 150k and 175k units.If, on the other hand, these aren't tea leaves at all but the unspeakable remains of Trakin's lunch from last Tuesday, we could be looking at a post-Black Friday surge that lands Rod Stewart's Merry Christmas, Baby (Verve) at the top of the tree.
    As you may have guessed, the impact of Black Friday and Cyber Monday on sales is still being reckoned with; this lends a giddy, cinnamon-scented air of unpredictability to the whole enterprise. Or maybe we're feeilng this way because we started drinking eggnog at about 9:30am. Didn't you? Bottoms up, buddy!
    Other key debuts of the week are electro-popsters Timeflies, whose self-released One Night EP (now spreading its wings at #2 on the iTunes chart, trailing only Keys) should buzz up 25-30k, and Columbia's Season 4 Glee set, which is expected to move 18-22k.
    HITS Daily Double: News

    So...ALL R&B stars underperformed this year. Chris Brown, Usher & Alicia Keys all won't be able to pass 200k copies even though they got hits. That is, of course, not counting Rihanna, whose lead single "Diamonds" is sitting at #1 on the new R&b chart a la Taylor Swift's "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together", for an eighth week.

    I wonder what will happen to Beyonce next year? "4" opened with 303k copies without a hit, but Keys opened with 401k copies without a hit.

    Anyhow, when Rihanna was projecting way above 200k copies last week, HDD was saying there's a possibility for her to get a #1. And Swift ends up at ~180k at #2. So this probably means everybody else is significantly selling fewer copies than 150k copies this coming week...

    Hopefully BA is going to be restocked well enough to keep numbers up.
    In a world where only a few CD's get a massive stocking advantage, it makes it really difficult to judge the popularity of a Cd.
    I would love to be able to keep seeing 70,000 but I know that is too much to ask santa for.
    But 50,000?
    Yes Please!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm expecting a big drop this week for Carrie. I would be pleasantly surprised if she comes anywhere close to 30K.

    Wow at the drop for Alicia.

    I am expecting a big drop too. But if she can sell 20k or 30k, I will be thrilled.

    It will all depend on how well stocked the stores are. Christmas shopping has begun, so that may help.

    ^ Notice that Rihanna and Taylor both benefited so unfairly by the new crappy Billboard chart? The R&B Fans complaining about it were right too- just as we were right about the country chart being destroyed, only benefiting Taylor.

    So unfair.

    This week is traditionally the calm in between storms. Sales will pick up next week. Ke$ha might be going for a #1.

    I'm hoping for a 20-25k week. Last week was just a huge bonus.

    If the product is there I still don't see why we can't get 30.

    It's possible but not wise to set a high expectation just to have ourselves disappointed.

    Yes, it is very probable that BA will pass Tuskegee in sales by the end of 2012. Last week, Tuskegee had a huge sales gain (like many albums) to raise its grand total to 1,049,272. Now, the prior week, it sold 2,090, which is probably its nominal weekly sales figure since the album has been out for so long.

    With only a 40,000 lead over BA and selling 2k per week, it is extremely probable for BA to Tuskegee within the next 2-3 weeks.
