Alicia Keys is set to encounter the biggest flop of her entire career.
According to HDD, Alicia's new album ‘Here’ is set to debut in the top ten of the Billboard 200 with just 38-43K (SPS). In pure sales only she is set to do just 33-38K. Bon Jovi and The Chainsmokers are surpassing her in the sales department. In 2007, she debuted with 742K. In 2009, the debuting numbers were still respectable at 419K, but in 2012, it took quite a drop at 159K. Even if she did 159K with this album sans a hit single, it would not have been such a low blow. But 33K in pure sales? This truly is an abomination for a once strong first week album seller. At least Usher is not alone.
