If last week’s early album sales projections and Chris Brown’s anti-retail Twitter rant were any indication, it hasn’t been too hard to assess that Brown’s third album Graffiti is set to pretty much stiff on this week’s upcoming Billboard Top 200 Albums chart (officially published Thursday).
Last week Billboard initially reported that Graffiti was on track to sell 95,000 to 110,000 copies. Today Hits Daily Double offered up its tally on the seven-day period’s album sales, and has Chris debuting at #6, with a ho-hum 102,489 copies moved.
Scottish song-vixen Susan Boyle, on the other hand, appears to have easily retained the #1 spot with I Dreamed A Dream for a third week, with another 582,000 in sales.
In fact, Chris Brown even got sucker-punched by the second Glee soundtrack, which HDD shows coming in at #3 with 171,000 units sold. It’s probably a good thing, then, that the embattled pop singer had his Twitter account yanked offline yesterday—otherwise, who knows what type of expletive-riddled tirades and conspiracy theories he’d be pushing off on the virgin-eared masses.
