TMZ has obtained the latest numbers for Janet’s 20 Y.O., and it is tanking big time. The CD debuted three weeks ago, selling 296,873 copies. The second week, sales plunged 74% to 77,240 units. The typical second week drop is 40%. TMZ also obtained figures for third week sales, and it’s not too early to declare Janet’s latest effort a disaster. Sales dropped to 42,240 units, a 45% plunge from the second week. Janet’s CD debuted at number two on the charts, dropped to number nine the second week, and then went down to number 19 the third week. So far, Janet’s CD has sold 416,353 units. Virgin Records reportedly stocked the stores with 1.2 million copies.
Poor Janet. This proves you can’t have a successful album without the support of MTV. Not to mention she should put out a better lead single next time.
