joao, what do you mean that the leaked material is "horrible."
Sounds more like a personal opinion to me...
I said "leaked" because I haven´t heard the entire album, just the tracks that leaked days before.
It´s a personal opinion, but it seems to be shared with a lot of people (since her singles have failed miserably this time around despite colossal promo). The vocals are awful, the lyrics would fit for a teenager not a 53 year old woman, and the lead single is completely tuneless.
No wonder even with a Superbowl performance watched by +100 million, young superstar collabs, and a Clear Channel payola deal, the song couldn even become moderately sucessful. It might not even go gold, which is pathetic for today´s market.
Of course the album was going to be #1... she has a solid fanbase that will blind buy the album, in different versions (deluxe, regular edition, etc) but after that it´s over... 60k on the 2nd week and out of the top 10 in no-time! I could be wrong but I don´t see this album outselling Hard Candy at all.
