Album Sales Predictions: Kanye West, J. Cole, Mac Miller, & Kelly Rowland

June 18 Releases

All eyes are on the charts as Kanye West, J. Cole, Mac Miller, and Kelly Rowland battle it out this week. After a full day in stores, early estimates are in.

The biggest showdown is between Kanye and Cole. According to HITS Daily Double, Kanye’s Yeezus is on track to outsell Cole’s Born Sinner with 375-400k, while Cole’s sophomore set is predicted to move 290-315k units based on one-day estimates.

That would give Kanye the second biggest debut of the year behind Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience (968k) and Cole the fourth largest debut after Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories (339k).

Mac Miller’s second album Watching Movies With the Sound Off is approaching the 95-105k range. His 2011 debut Blue Slide Park opened at No. 1 with 145,000.

Kelly Rowland is facing off with her male counterparts with her fourth album Talk a Good Game, which is expected to sell 60-65k copies in its first week. Her previous set, 2011’s Here I Am, entered at No. 3 with 77,000.

Final sales will be released next Wednesday, June 26.

    Reviewers are up Kanye’s ass but word of mouth isn’t doing him any favors. I think he’ll come in under these expectations and Cole will be higher. Kanye will still probably be #1 though. Sad to say it, but BS deserves it over Yeezus.

    I’ve never really given Mac a try. I may Spotify his record later. I’ll buy Cole’s by the end of the week.

    Kelly— I LOOOVE the album cover. It’s an ok album. I like a good chunk of songs.

    @DRB, That is exactly what i said regarding the reviews that were being made on J.Cole && Kanye West album
    *He is really overrated and Now i see why he is taking himself as the big thing …
    *J.Cole && Kelly Rowland are the ones i really want to prove everyone wrong with their sales

    @iL0vee__, Kanye West is a great music artist, I don’t think he is overrated at all. Every album that Kanye West has made has always sold over 300,000 copies in its first week out. Every album Kanye West has made has gotten great critical reviews, everybody already knew that Kanye West was going to outsell J. Cole. At the end of the day, it’s not always about record sales, its about great music artists putting out great music. In my unbiased opinion, I think both Kanye West and J. Cole put out great albums this year.

    I’m a little suspect on Kelly Rowland’s numbers mainly due to the amount of press she’s garnered this year and plus the album is dope. Though she didn’t have a smash like Motivation her campaign was solid. I think she’ll actually crack close to 100K, 60K sounds extremely too low. Also, there is no way Kanye is pulling in those numbers. I went to two Targets trying to get J. Cole’s album and there was nothing by Kanye’s album on the shelves plus word of mouth is destroying that album’s changes. I honestly think J. Cole could edge out Yeezy.

    I’m a fan of all these artists, but I was most impressed with Born Sinner. The increased production, growth and messages are a drastic bump up from Sideline Story. Simpletons look at chart positions and album sells as if that defines or is somehow indicative of the quality of material. Born Sinner is genuine hip-hop and people with a brain larger than that of a gnat understand that. To level-headed consumers and not stans, it’s not about who comes in at #1 but rather which artists released material that connects with the public and will be cherished for years to come.

    @Adrian, You’re completely right! A classic album is not an album which sells million of copies, go #1 on twenty countries, neither critical acclaim, neither public loves. It is an album that can relate to ourselves, the humans, that shows our feelings, thoughts, and actions.

    [Reply]

  14. Raj

    I think Cole’s album sales will be higher. His buzz for Born Sinner has been nuts and Power Trip has generated a whole new group of fans and his Dollar & A Dream tour is packed. Hell of a promo idea. As far as outselling Yeezus goes …. eh. It really shouldn’t be about that. Lackluster shit sells well — look at pop acts like Swift, Bieber & 1D. Yeezus was different but even so I didn’t like it. But Kanye’s got some dickriders and bandwagons … they’ll purchase any and everything his name is attached to.

  17. It'sjustdifferent

    I’ve bought Yeezus, Born Sinner and Talk a Good Game yesterday. Yeezus is a different sound, not completely sold on it to be quiet honest, it’s definitely not his best work and although will probably be #1 it isn’t a classic. Now Born Sinner is quiet special, a solid collection of songs with great production and lyrics from cole that paint real experiences and stories. Cole has a handful of top charting singles and I think should do well depending on the push with promo in the coming weeks. Great album! Talk a good game is most definitely Kelly’s best work till date, you can hear the growth from Here I am which was a collection of songs with various feels. This album is consistent, it’s RnB today, she has IMO 5 really good songs on the album, This album could easily do better if the right singles are chosen, having heard the album, ‘Dirty Laundry’ is a poor choice for the next single. With songs like ‘Sky walker’, put your name on it, down on love and #1 etc, Talk a good game could easily be a chart topping album. I like the album. Impressed with both Cole and Kelly, not so much with Kanye, I guess because his earlier albums are so epic. I’m gonna give Mac a try this week… Sorry for the long review lol

  19. coleminersmusic

    Kelly will flop cuz she had little promotion and the album is ok.

    Mac will sell moderately to white kids in the burbs. His sales really come from his live shows.

    J.Cole’s album is very good and Kanye’s is very experimental with a deeper concept. Yeezus will win first week sales but Cole will win the overall because his is more marketable and there are more commercial-friendly/radio hits

    Poor Kelly. I don’t even think her projected sales are a result of being released on the same day as 2 heavy hitters …. it’s just that most folks didn’t fall for her Dirty Laundry marketing ploy. Sad to say, but she will never be allowed to be great in America. Might as well go back over to the UK, because people absolutely love & respect her there.

    @Kalin, I do agree with you to a point. Don’t get me wrong, I do like Kelly and her music for the most part, but people in America are more focused on Beyonce. In other countries they worship Kelly and they’re quick to buy her stuff. I don’t know why, but for some reason she’s never had as much support as her other female competitors.

Most kids cant afford to buy both or all 4 albums so they will choose whats more popular RAP! It sukks that you have to have a rapper on your song in order to even get Air Time! featerait pf 3 o as bur on since r and B is in shambles witha she will be releasing the video this week.

    @notahater, Cole sold less than these predicted numbers his first week and his debut album still went gold, I’m sure he’ll go gold this time as well. Especially when that “Crooked Smile” single with TLC takes off. Born Sinner and Trouble would make good singles too, Ain’t That Some Sh*t would be a good street single, and there’s a song with Jhene Aiko on the deluxe that has single potential to. Combine that with a tour, promo, and performances, I think Cole can get that platinum plaque this time, or closer to it at least

    The reason why Kelly Rowland didn’t do good is because in every interview she always talked about beyonce…instead of what she has on her album. This is why she will never be a SOLO superstar because she can’t get out of beyonce shadow even if she tried, she’ll still go back to mentioning her.

    “Projections fucking up hip hop. First week tally’s fuckin up hip hop. Your 1st listen reviews are fucking up hip hop. To keep it real, your whole publication is fuckin up hip hop. You niggas are Critics. Not fans. Fuck critics. The people decide.” – J. Cole speaks the truth.

  49. King Rose

    The best album that came out was the Mac Miller – Watching Movies with The Sound Off. Maybe because I had extremely low expectations. But once I listen I found myself not skipping a track. Quality music on the album. As far as the J. Cole CD it’s decent he played it safe. Not to exciting. It seem like he did his best with his label controlling his content. He will find his lane soon. Now the Kanye CD, hated it the first listen because I was expecting the CD to have a New Slaves vibe. The second listen I knew to hear with an abstract ear…..still disappointed in the CD. The track with Chief Keef is GOD aweful… Hell the tracks with the heavy I AM A GOD references are terrible as well. He made these songs for shock value versus good overall music. The album that he tried to create has already been done, i.e. Kid Cudi – Indicud. The problem that lies is that you make a certain type of music, and have people expecting something and then turn around and put out a country CD and expect everything to still be cool. I don’t mind him switching up the style but at least make what you are doing good.

    J. Cole’s album sounds inspired by The College Dropout, anda everything in th 2004-05 hip hop era… its a very good album, easy listen, but thats also the reason it will be quickly forgotten.

    Yeezus is a great album, but VERY difficult album. It’s hard to say what it will accomplish. I kind of miss the old Kanye, but Yeezus does make everything else in music sound kind of safe and boring

    The only reason Kelly’s flopping is because once again SHE RELEASES HER ALBUM ON A DAY WHEN MULTIPLE BIG ACTS ARE BEING RELEASED. For right now, she needs to release her album on a slow week. As for Yeezus sucking, I love it, but he didn’t make the album for hip hop fans. He clearly said he is a new wave artist. Most of his fans aren’t hip hop heads, well not now back in the day definitely, but after graduation he went completely different. This album is for white people and hipsters that eat that shit up. Obviously if you are a hip hop head, J. Cole’s album is the one for you, and if you’re a 13 – 17 year old white teen living in the suburbs Mac Miller’s album is going to be your favorite. Idk, just my opinion on all this.

    J. Cole deserves to have number 1 album kanye west’s album was shit compared to J. Cole’s album. J. Cole’s songs actually tells a story in most of the songs except like 2 of them. You could tell Tupac had an influence on Cole.

    Had to go to 2 different stores to find J.Cole’s. There was plenty of Kayne Kardashian’s album; didn’t buy it. Kelly and Mac…I’ll pass on too.

    Nothing to impressive right now. Although, Justin’s I did like.

    Kanye – Have been a fan for a while, but seriously, ‘Yeezus’ sucks. It’s an album for… him I guess.

    J.Cole – I’m not really on the J.Cole train like most. I haven’t yet listened to ‘Born Sinner’.

    Kelly Rowland – I enjoyed Kelly’s last 2 albums for sure, so I decided to check out ‘Talk a Good Game’ despite the fact that I wasn’t too impressed with “K.D.L” or “Dirty Laundry”. It’s a decent album tho. Not het best.

    Mac Miller – “Watching Movies with the Sound Off’ is my shit. I love it far more than ‘Blue Slide Park’, and I liked that quite a bit too. No sophomore slump here @ all. Favorite track, “Claymation” (ft. Vinny Radio).
