The singer’s third solo album “Here I Am” was proceeded by the #1 smash R & B hit “Motivation” and should have performed relatively well in its first week. However, because Kelly has not done a stitch of promotion, the album will debut with sales of well under 100,000.
How much under? Keep reading…
According to Hits Daily Double, Kelly’s “Here I Am” will sell anywhere between 70-75,000 copies, which could secure it the #2 position if Adele’s “21” every decides to relinquish it.
I wrote about Kelly’s lack of promotion earlier this week and quite a few people thought I was being negative when in actuality I was stating the truth. Kelly cannot sell off of name alone, nor can she hope that the people who purchased “Motivation” will be moved to also purchase “Here I Am.”
So, where does Kelly go from here? Apparently out on tour with fellow R & B powerhouse Chris Brown. C Breezy announced last week that Miss Kelly would be tagging along on his upcoming fall tour.
