Album sales: Janet Jackson thrives & Tamar Braxton flops...

According to Hits Daily Double, Janet Jackson has topped the Billboard 200 with new album 'Unbreakable.' The project sold 106,000 copies (without streaming) and 112,000 copies (with streaming). 

Tamar Braxton's ‘Calling All Lovers’ nabbed second place selling just 37,000 copies. Tamar should have sold a lot more than that. I am shocked she sold so low, which is a shame because her record was really solid. 

She had all the exposure and promo at her beck and call and couldn't even hit 50K. I am so happy for Janet though. It was a really good album and it's really unfortunate that she missed the Grammy deadline. The album would be eligible in February, so let's hope she continues to release videos and singles to keep the momentum going. 'Unbreakable' has been getting really great reviews and went up one notch to 77 on Metacritic this week.
