    Congrats to her. The critics really hated on the song and album something vicious however her true fans supported and she continues her chart topping success. Now if we can just get the cornrowed Wu-TANG loving Ms. Keys back into the lab to drop some more music the hood can feel and relate to she just might win hearts back. Til then tho…

  • Devante

  • oby

    thats great but Alicia is known for pushin at least 400k+ first week…..so does this mean shes a flop???

  • truetrue

    ^^^ this is true but your talkin about a day and age where people have kinda figured why purchse the music if we can have it for free, if you do 250 today your ballin if you woulda done 250 back in the beggining of 2000 it was a flop

  • Romo

    Why the fuck can’t our artist do a mill in a week … This shit crazy I think they shaving our numbers all the way cross the board.

  • IamRealTalk *MKW* – Position: CEO/Five-☆-General of MKW – MAYBACH MUSIC KEYBOARD WARRIORS – Best Hip Hop Album of 2012 – Skyzoo – A Dream Defferred !!!

  • Black Shady

    She aint no queen of music fuck outta here

    My girl RIRI is running this shit! owwwwwwwwwwwwwww haters get mad

  • casper21

    imo she has the best voice and is the best female artist of our generation, some whitney houston type shit. a few good songs on here that i gladly throw on the ipod. but this is a major flop for her. she has an incredibly extensive fan base, but they must not be feelin this or something. she’s an artist that kills the charts with every release, so the numbers will be disappointing, but hell, she can always hit the studio and release another one in a year or two.

  • Your Life Is A Lie

    Sorry but this is a flop for her

  • Prophet

    Doesn’t mean it was a good album. Most people would say its terrible and it is as evidenced by the lead single. Saying that she has the best voice of this generation is purely asinine. What are you listening to? Her voice, especially live, is awful.

  • R

    Boricuas stand up!!!

  • NYC Finest

    Would you look at that a REAL artist selling albums when sales are at a all time low. She is the queen of music. All she needs is a piano and she will put together a great piece of work. Fuck Beyonce and Rihanna played out pop shit.

  • RCA Records

    Congrats Alicia! Album of The Year!!!

  • dgm

    thats week 2 sales alone….the description say since last teusday Nov. 27th..the album dropped the 22nd ….that would put the album around the 400k so far

  • MONEY TEAM WEED CARRIER

    flop

  • floridaboy

    she still fine

  • Devante

    Far from a flop.. I bet her first week sales were 60k in Canada, 50k in the UK , 20K in Japan and 25k in Austrillia and so on… She’s an International superstar!!! She isn’t losing sleep over 100k in the US

  • OssO

    She needs to wax her arms! look at her hand for fuck sake!

  • HB

    yeah i would say this is a flop for her. the last album she came out with (which was only 3 years ago) did major figures. like 600-700k . just watch how much Em’s next album sells, or Drake, or Jay z , or Wayne, or Beyonce bet they still do big numbers, she suppose to be an A-lister, so this was kinda a fall off. But her single did real good though.

  • Har-magedon

    See that’s a problem with y’all bunch of mindless fucks-Alicia is hands-down the best fucking singer, better yet artist out there. Chick can belt out songs better than the rest, can write and produce her own joints, and definitely murders the black and white keys . She ‘s on that Donny Hathaway/Stevie Wonder path -who the fuck else can compare?

    Clock is ticking……………………………………………………………..yeah I thought so.

  • WTF!

    Sad sad sad day in music when a album this good only does 159K but artist like Rihanna and Nicki do at least 200K smh… BLACK people NEED to start supporting there artist. Look at Taylor Swift every white person went out and bought T. Swift album and milli twice. Eminem never has to worry bout his album flopping cuz white people having no problem supporting there artist. BLACK people spend $10 a day to buy honey buns, beef patties, and weed but can’t support there artist. BLACK people killed the music industry.

  • Marquee

    look at those nasty hairy arms SMH

  • The God Honest Truth

    At least her numbers aint fix. Lil’ Wayne, Drake, Taylor Swift are all distributed by Universal. Its a little fishy that they had impressive numbers.

  • JAGUAR

    @ black shady- nicki aint sell no 200k in her last album. the bitch sold 35,000 lol. now thats a flop. alicia is a true artist and will survive all this hate she getting from you morons. nicki and riri are present day weak entertainers. alicia keys is a legend………..bow down you worms…

  • Nigga Stop It

    @JAGUAR Sorry to break to you cuz I hate the bitch but Nicki album did over 200K. Her re-release of that album that was sold limted ONLY at Best Buy did 35K. Anyway congrats to Alicia!

  • dave

    I hate when people say in this day and age people can’t sell records.taylor swift just did way over a million in her first week so thats crap.its just hip hop and rnb fans aka black people who not buying the music and just illegally downloading

  • Your Life Is A Lie

    She flopped get over it

  • WestCoast

    100k flop haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaard

  • AK47

    shes been done and only misinformed fans will say she isnt. her 2nd album was her last and best one.. her music and performances are growing worst. for example, her butchering of that song @ whitney’s funeral..

  • shoot’em up bang bang
