Sales Predictions for Michael Jackson, Ciara, R. Kelly, & Diddy-Dirty Money

R. Kelly, Diddy, and Ciara

After one day in stores, preliminary figures are in for some of urban music’s biggest acts. Find out what Michael Jackson, R. Kelly, Ciara, and Diddy-Dirty Money are expected to sell in their opening week.

The King of Pop’s posthumous release, Michael, is gearing up for a strong debut, with an estimated 225-250,000 copies in its first week, according to HITS Daily Double. On the R&B tip, R. Kelly is slated to make a jolly entry onto the charts with his well-received album Love Letter, which should sell an estimated 150-160,000.

But the rest of the first-week sales aren’t looking so hot. Despite a heavy promotional campaign, Diddy-Dirty Money’s oft-delayed album Last Train to Paris is only shaping up to move 60-65,000 copies. R&B singer-songwriter Tank is on track to sell 40-45,000 units of his fourth LP Now or Never, while Ciara’s Basic Instinct figures are projected at 35-40,000.

These numbers are based on one-day sales reports from retailers and are subject to change. Final figures will be released next Wednesday.

    Ciara is going to get dropped by her record label I just know it. She should sign to Murder Inc.

    I think Ciara will do much better than that. People said the same thing about Rihanna. They predicted she wouldnt sell and she hit 250,000+. its all good Ci, we all knw Basic Instinct is fire!

    [Reply]

  15. 123

    Honestly… Jive dies NOT care about Ciara. It is clear. She needs a new team and management.

    And Rihanna did NOT hit 250,000 her 1st week

  21. Nic

    These numbers do not surprise me at all. Ciara’s latest singles have not charted high on the billboard charts and do not receive much radio play. I feel bad for her bc “Speechless” is a good song. Oh well maybe she needs to get dropped and start in a new direction. She needs to go back to her roots,like her first two cds. Diddy is a hot ass mess. He should have kept Danity Kane together. They were more popular and successful than his Dirty Money group. The album is gonna flop bc its been pushed back so much and bc he just sucks period! Congrats to R.Kelly and long live MJ

    I expect Dirty Money to sell way more than that i mean Diddy literally looked desperate promoting this album yesterday lol. I guess people got sick of it and just downloaded it. Its just an ok album to me. As for ciara, damn girl i feel bad cause wasnt that album pushed back 4 months from August. Oh and R-kellys Love Letter album is amazing.

    [Reply]

  27. jhuntdaprodigy

    I seen Ciara & Diddy-Dirty Money on 106&Park yesterday. I looked at Diddy, the way he had the crowd that day, and thought he could at least pull 100,000, damn son. As for Ciara, I saw her yesterday and thought “Where the fuck she been the past few months” this album was promoted horribly, the only somewhat popular single came out 4 months ago. I’m really glad to see Kells is pushing some decent units though, King of R&B right there

    [Reply]

  28. Its 2 easy

    To the people that said ciara would sell more than Keri Hilson kill yourselves now. We all know Keri Hilson is gonna do way better numbers than that. “No Boys Allowed” in stores next tuesday. Cant Wait!

    [Reply]

  30. meme

    I feel so bad for Ciara. Ive beeen saying this for 2 years now…ciara needs to stop caterin to the ghetto trashin urban market and try to cross over. This album should have filled with pop dance tracks but instead she went 2 steps backwards from fantasy ride (which is by far her best work). If Jive gives her another chance they need to market her the way they do britney. Im tellin u ciara can be a huge pop artist but she insist on doin these ghetto things. smt

    [Reply]

  31. I dont get it

    Lmaooooo people are going in on ciara smfh. Why does jive continue to waste money on her if she doesnt sell thats 2 albums with major budget down the drain. Yeah shes getting dropped for sure.

    hahaha serious @Realist … Ciara has the most ridiculous stans out there and she flops!! hahaha

    [Reply]

  34. Kick Roxx

    I think the reason people don’t like her much is because she isn’t really putting out “new” sounding material; she isn’t breaking any ground. Most of her songs sound like something you’d probably hear at a roller rink. Meme is right, a lot of her songs sound ghetto, like the first album was. Evolution was a step up, but the last 2 were a step down, and no one really knows what she’s talking about. Maybe if she had a different songwriter/producers working on her stuff then she’d probably sale. In other words, her sound is stuck in 2005.

    [Reply]

  35. How does it feel?

    Like i said so many times i knew Basic Instinct was going to fail none of her singles have done shit on the charts except Ride. Speechless flopped, Gimme That flopped. And for ciara stans to have the audacity to come at Keri hilson all the time yall r simply mad mad and mad. I bet yall are in major denial right now that your fav has failed for a second time. You hoodrats get no love smfh.

    [Reply]

  42. tones

    i don’t believe Ciara well sell that low because the Best Buy I went to in Cleveland was sold out and I am not lying at all, the customer service man said they had like 65 pre-orders and they had about another 250 copies shipped and those were sold out so I had to go to Walmart(which I hate) and there were like 7 copies left. I think Ciara will do around 75k – 100k, because don’t forget the pre-orders she got on iTunes and Amazon, her album was like #4 on iTunes R&B just based on pre-orders, like now one really knows about Tank’s and Kandi’s album, more ppl generally know about the other 4, so I think MJ will sell around 240k, Ciara 75k-100k, DDM 75k-100k and R. Kelly around 100k-125. Ciara and R. Kelly have great albums and I really want both of them to make comebacks because they are both talented, as for DDM, I could care less, like who would really listen to a Diddy album, but I hope Tank and Kandi sell well because they both can SANGGGGGG.

    [Reply]

  43. joey

    the thing about ciara, is that she is so talented, and her record is actually pretty good. its just her team sucks. and it sucks for her cause she puts all that work into the album but her label fails to do what they are supposed to do. ill buy it

    [Reply]

  44. J TRIPLE DASH

    the album will sell 80-120k and its not all about the U.S her albums do okay worldwide not massive numbers but good enough to not depart from jive (leave them coz its clear they left you after evo regarding promo) the leaks and the lack of album tracks made it not worth buying the last 2 albums for some. its not the content thats the problem. basic instinct is a really good album and I am sure she will stay positive and continue following her dream.

    [Reply]

  45. Whos Cedric?

    @Tones ciara is not doing 75-100k your in denial. Her album isnt even in the top 10 on itunes its at #14 and going up. Shes going to flop!

    [Reply]

  46. chelsea

    @J TRIPLE DASH, 80-120k??? you’re delusional. stop blaming everyone and everything for the failure. did you ever think that people are just not interested in her music?

    [Reply]

  47. Jodys From Paris

    i’ll always support ciara. she might sell 2000 or 100 000 ill always be there. i ddnt expect much anyway, there was no promo. the big performance was today. no need to mention the fact that people love to hate on her (but i dont care about that part). so it’s simple, they ddnt put out a lot of money for the project (almost 0 investment), it’s normal to get such returns. i think it’s good enough for her. Jive dont care about her, they better drop her n we gonna do somethin else. i disagree with people sayin she’s too ghetto. she’s bein who she is n thats fine. her album is a mix of pop and rnb. i can see u ddnt even take time to listen to it. heavy rotation, girls get ur money, turn it up, gimmmie dat sound more pop than rnb. thats not even a big deal. rnb or pop or hiphop she’s talented enough to be relevant. it’s just that there’s no promo. n there’s NOTHING SHE CAN DO ABOUT IT. they r the ones who delay her albums’ releases, then they make her say on tv that she aint ready yet(b*llsh*t)…
    i ddnt even expect her to be charted internationally. i dont like doin comparisons, but rihanna performed in Paris twice or thrice before she dropped her album…only girl was played on radio like 17hrs a day to make people like n buy it…they invested in her project but what did ciara get “NADA”…
    but that aint important, let’s be positive n keep supportin her. there’re some performances comin in the next few days…#LetsGo TeamCiara

    Ciara has the best album out. Calm down it’s only been a day. These sale predictions are wrong.I’m hearing her ablum is sold out. So all you haters need to shut the fuck up.Stop comparing her to other people.She’s better hands down.

    [Reply]

  49. candee

    These predictions are wrong. Ciara will sell more than that. It’s only been one day. I have the album and it’s the best album out.I love Ciara because she back at doing what she does best. Ride, Gimmie Dat, You Can Get It, and Turn It Up my favorite songs. If i had to rate the album it would get a 5 out of 5 stars. So go and get you a copy.

    [Reply]

  50. Kyle

    PART ONE: You think Ciara and her label would’ve learned after “Fantasy Ride.” They should keep their mouths shut until they know FOR SURE when they want to drop an album. Remember the momentum this album had back in late April when “Ride” first dropped? Then Ciara started releasing mixtape songs and had people really talking. When she said August 17th was the release date people were really hyped. Fast forward 4 months later and this project has gone to s*** on the promotional side. This has happened now with 2 albums in a row.

    [Reply]

  51. Kyle

    PART TWO: But on the bright side, I think it’s good that US FANS finally got what we have been waiting for. Bad promotion and pushbacks doesn’t take away from the fact that it’s a good album. I’m actually surprised this album didn’t get pushed back until next year or even shelved. With no hit single or songs in the top 40 right now, I’m glad I can say I got it in my hands. At the end of the day, who gives a s*** what an album sells? As long as I have it in my hands.

    [Reply]

  52. tell'em

    I still think Ciara and Keri had a better chance at selling more if they went up against each other. Of course there would be a “loser” in the battle but they both would’ve sold more than they’re going to. Also, what happened to “Get It Girl” and “Blauw”?? That’s the Ciara I like. Flop or not she has some gems on this album like “Ride” and can come back harder next time. She seems nice.. I wish her well.

    And people need to stop looking for someone to blame and stop mentioning other artists. They’re not even pushing Rihanna’s album right now and she sold over 70k this past week and went Gold already. She doesn’t get some next level special treatment. Keri and Keyshia Cole are all over the place now as well. There are many things that go into sales and name dropping ain’t gonna help this situation.

    Oh and LOL @ Diddy flopping. /rant

    people are so in denial. stop blaimin promo….r kelly got no promo and ALOT of critizism, so dnt go there. Ciara problem is plain and simply….she is going after the ghetto market who dont go out and buy albums. Her and Keri has the same problem….they are tooooo urban to sell in this day and age when everyone is pop. Even rappers are pop now. Ciara is soooo behind the 8 ball. Just listen to the content of her album, all shes talkin about is peace up A down, georgia peach this and that….smt, no one want to hear that shit. im sorry

    [Reply]

  57. meme

    yeah the dream and tricky gave ciara all the shitty music. ride is the ONLY hit on the album…ONLY. I dnt get it, rihanna have a album with 10 hits, basically any single rihanna drop from loud will chart high becuz they are HITS. Why Jive cudnt put ciara in the studio with fresh talent and give her atleast 3 or 4 hits on this tired album. they may is well drop this project and dnt waste no more money on videos. im so upset, i just cant believe this is happenin to her again.

  65. Face Reality

    The projections are correct and ciaras album is #15 on itunes top album charts shes going to flop. The itunes chart ALWAYS reflects what the artist will sell and if ciaras album is #15 and didnt even make the top 10 its offically a flop. You stans are in denial u need to wake up and face the reality of the situation. And do not blame her bad promotion because R-kelly got very little to no promo and his album is #1 on itunes due to how well recieved the album is and word of mouth which is amazing. Ciaras music has no growth what so ever, shes not talking about anything people want to hear. That Basic Instinct album is complete and utter trash, no hit singles, Nothing!

R kelly can afford droppin an album without promoting…Ciara cant just afford that. her 2 last singles werent promoted n ddnt appear on the Hot100 n lets not 4get the fact that FR ddnt do well, the fact that her album leaked…how can u compare Rkelly who has like at least 18 #1s with Ciara??? how old r u??? Ciara only needed a promo. she dont need a pop-ish album…BTW ciara fans R OKAY+kOOL with that, we’ll keep supportin her… u should really consider facing the reality of ur own imaginary life cuz u aint got none. u sayin she’s a flop, still u makin investigations about her. (Do u work 4 FBI or CIA?) plus she WAS #10 on itunesUS, u r simply pathetic!!

    DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH MONEY THEY HAVE TO PAY FOR A SONG???? THEY’RE NOT GONNA THROW THE TRACK AWAY AND WASTE MONEY MANAGEMENT CHOOSES WHAT SONGS TO PUT ON THE ALBUM

    I THINK THE NUMBERS ARE WAAAAAAY OFF LIKE PEOPLE SAID ‘BASIC INSTINCT’ SOLD OUT IN MANY STORES

  82. Just accept it

    Enough with the excuses its really getting pathetic. Ciara flopped because nobody is checkin for her not because the promotion. She didnt learn her lesson with Fantasy Ride and she acted like Basic Instinct was gonna be her comeback but Dream and Tricky couldnt even save her career. Shes done and thats just the way it is. Its not hating its the truth. She needs to hang it up……FLATSCREEN!

  90. Accept defeat

    You stans sound bitter and are searching for answers when the answer is right in front of your face, her music sucks ass otherwise she would have sold. Her album is clearly disapointing it is now #28 on Itunes top albums chart. It went from #12 all the way to #28 in one day lmao. Her album isnt selling it couldnt even make it into the top 10 shes over.

    Too many haters commenting on here. Her music is certainly no worse than any other female pop artists whose selling records these days. It’s most definitely her promo. She needs to leave that damn label ASAP!

    I honestly cannot think of one R&B artist who was expected to sell high this year except Trey Songz and PPP has only sold like 540k, Monica has only sold like 520k, Fantasia – 310k, The-Dream flopped, NeYo won’t do over 300k, Jazmine might sell around 250k, I doubt Kandi sells 100k, Tank may do like 175k, Keri may go Gold and so may Keyshia and I doubt Ciara does more than 200k unless she releases some great singles. But what’s sad about Ciara’s case is that, ppl were saying she needed to diversify her music and she did that on Fantasy Ride and ppl said she lost her urban roots so she went back to her urban roots on Basic Instinct and now ppl are saying that needs a Pop hit to be huge again. Ummmm, correct me if I’m wrong but din’t she try the Pop route with FR and didn’t ppl hate her for it. I just don’t believe that R&B artist should have to go all David Guetta/electro/syntho-pop to be huge. Ciara, Monica, Fantasia, Trey, Kandi, NeYo, Keyshia and Tank say true to R&B, u don’t need to sell out just to be big.

    not to be racist or anything its just sad how the black community dis and dont support their own people its reallly sad of course i am talking about the haterz where in other communities there are not so much negativity towards artists and much more support. if u dont like the artist then dont say nothing and keep moving on no need to put them below the bus. anywayz i love ciara and to me her album is the beest and i will always support her. so what even if she sells 50,000 minimum if i was her i would be happpy cause i already had a #1 albumm its all good lov u cici

    MJ will sell around 340K first week, probably another much (much) larger amount worldwide first week.

    The rest can bow down underneath.

  100. Whatever

    Why does everyone get all worked up over Ciara/Keri/Rihanna when these artists do not care whether you live or die in the next 5 minutes? Seriously people need to calm down. So what if ciara isn’t strong in the charts for the first week of sales? Will that change anything personally in your own life? Be constructive. Get a job, pay your child support, get on with your own life. Ciara has money, the question is do you?

  108. Basic Instincts FTW!!!

    This is a real shame.
    Ciara has more talent in her left FOOT than many of these other artist that are placed on this high pedestal. What ever happend to real entertainers selling records? What ever happened to people actually going out and BUYING albums? WE are the technical managers of our favorite artists careers ladies and gents. If Ciara, Rihanna, or anyone flops, its cause we didn’t buy the album. However, I do hate when people state that her career is OVER cause the cd didn’t sell that much on the 1st week. Its a known fact that the face of the music industry is no longer based on sales. Its centers around endorsments and tours. Ciara makes her money from live shows. NOT cd sales. Every artist has their field for money. And honestly, if the cd DOES do worse than Fantasy Ride, its also due to the fact that the music industry sucks HORRIBLY, and has only gotten WORSE! And her management sucks ASS! Everyone knows Ciara is a visual artist. Her songs BANG, but the bang more when you see what she’s doing to them on a stage. It gives you a visual to referrence mentally everytime the song comes on. So idk WHY she didn’t start performing and promoting earlier but hell. If Jive DOES drop her, I pray Roc Nation picks her up. Cause I’ve had it up to HERE with Mr. Johnny Write! Everyone thought she was gonna SLAY cause he managed Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson, but he fuckin sux tOO! She’d have been better off stayin with Jazze Pha, or Philana Williams…GOD…
    Prayin for you CiCi…
    God doesn’t let hard work go unrewarded…….(-_-)

    Rihanna album sold 207k in the first week so it didn’t flop. Rihanna album always goes plantinum so stop comparing her to flops. She is a WW artist not an american artist.
