Singers Michelle Williams and Ciara are both facing hard times on music charts this week. Hits Daily Double have come out with their official numbers for Michelle’s first week album sales and they are not very good. HDD estimates Michelle’s Unexpected album moved about 14,000 copies in it’s first seven days and should debut way outside the top 10 but inside the top 40. Clearly not the news the singer was expecting and very sad because her album is actually quite good and worth a listen to for those of you who haven’t checked it out yet.
Other singers having a tough time these days include Ciara. Her newest single, Go Girl, is outside of the top 100 on iTunes and her bullet on urban radio is -25. The song is also losing spins on both Urban and Rhythmic radio stations and has fallen about 2 million impressions- down to about 13 million. For those of you who don’t understand chart talk- simply put, radio stations are playing her song less and less and thus fewer and fewer people are hearing it, which more than likely is leading to her poor sales on iTunes.
