So this past week has been an amazing week for new music, as were blessed with two boastful bodies of work from Singer, Tamar Braxton, and the Iconic Janet Jackson, who held out on us for almost a decade.
Although there have been many stan war debates on who would have the better project, and who would snag the top spot on the charts, both albums are completely different, and are amazing in their own lane. Starting off her album pre-sales months before the release of any single, and even igniting a world tour prior to the release of her album, there was no doubt that Janet’s team meant serious business when it came executing a well devised promo campaign. With 3 single releases under her roster, 3 music videos, and an unexpected pushback, Tamar may have had a hiccup, but her promotion also stood firm in building anticipation for her project. Well with all the work put into both albums, we are now to see who is expected to snag the top spot on the Billboard charts.
According to Hits Daily Double, Miss Jackson has already taken flight to the top of the charts, and is expected to open up at #1 with at least 90k – 105k (physical sales), and 93k – 108k (including streaming). As for, Mrs Braxton-Herbert, who’s album we currently have on repeat, she is set to open with 38k -43k (physical sales) 42-47k (including streaming), which may leave the baby Braxton with the #3 spot on Billboard’s Top 200.
This is a little disappointing considering all that Tamar has going on, and we sure hope to see an increase in sales with ‘Dancing With the Stars’, ‘The Real’, and ‘Tamar and Vince’, assisting in her promo, as well as her upcoming tour with Mary J Blige. but then again maybe she’s become overexposed, as Janet has remained mysterious which naturally builds an extreme case of anticipation. These are just predictions, So make sure you follow us for the update with final results!
