Not a good look Breezy. Looks like the F.A.M.E that Chris Brown experienced with his last album won’t be reciprocated with this one, as early sales for Fortune don’t appear to be that hot. Last month, Usher experienced the same misfortune when his album failed to pull in massive numbers like he’s used to, and this month we see a similar trend with Breezy.
According to Billboard.biz, the R&B singer’s fifth studio release is expected to sell between 125K-140K by the end of the tracking week on July 8th, which isn’t a good look at all considering F.A.M.E. kicked off with a strong 270K. But one can’t be totally surprised. When you look at the numbers, only one of his singles featured any kind of success and it was the first one “Turn Up The Music” – which quickly fizzled out after his remix collaboration with Rihanna surfaced. The other three singles, “Sweet Love”, “Till I Die”, and “Don’t Wake Up” have failed to make any real impact on any chart.
Also you consider that after listening to the mostly R&B album, there aren’t as many single opportunities as there were with F.A.M.E – this one’s gonna be a tough road for Breezy. The singer however still plans on working on a joint mixtape with Tyga later this year, that may turn into a joint album if they get enough buzz behind it.
Team Breezy has been repping Chris Brown hard, so one has to ask – where were they this time around?
