‘Talk a Good Game’ Makes Top 5 Debut

KELLY ROWLAND FIRST WEEK SALES TALK A GOOD GAME

Kelly Rowland’s ‘Talk a Good Game’ album has sold 65,913 copies in its first full week of release, a number good enough to secure the singer the number four spot on this week’s Billboard 200.

Kelly came in right behind Mac Miller’s ‘Watching Movies with the Sound’ (101,795), J. Cole’s ‘Born Sinner’ (297,922) and Kanye West’s ‘Yeezus’ (328,800).

Though warmly received by fans and critics alike, ‘Talk a Good Game’ is actually Kelly’s lowest debut album to date. 2002’s ‘Simply Deep’ moved 77,000 copies in its first week- as did 2011’s ‘Here I Am.’ To date Kelly’s highest debut has been 2007’s ‘Ms Kelly’ album, which debuted with first week sales of just over 86,000.

Sales aside, ‘Talk a Good Game’ is Kelly’s most honest album to date and one you should all pick up if you haven’t already.
