As many of you know, Kelly Rowland released her sophomore album, Miss Kelly, earlier this week and her competition for the top spot on next week’s chart is pretty stiff. Kelly is going head to head with Atlanta rapper T.I. and according to one day sales from Hits Daily Double, T.I. is winning- by a landslide. According to the sometimes right and sometimes wrong source, T.I. is on his way to selling over 500,000 copies of his CD, while Kelly is due to sell just over 100,000 copies of her new opus. Now even though Kelly will obviously not come in at #1, the #2 slot isn’t so bad and with a great follow up single to Bump Like This, we are sure the Miss Kelly album will have what it takes to at least go platinum.
Kelly also stopped by MTV’s TRL on Tuesday and judging from the pics below, she was willing to go the extra mile to get fans to go out and buy her album.
Hits Daily Double’s final numbers are in and they have Kelly Roland at #6 with first week sales of 86,746. As we all know the official Soundscan numbers will be available tommorow evening but they aren’t going to change much. I am truly sorry to see Kelly’s album have such a poor showing. I cannot believe that after 10 years as a member of the biggest selling female group in history, so few people would care about what Kelly has to say as a solo artist. This is truly a shame.
