Two hit songs =/= popularity. It depends on fanbase, and Usher has the larger fanbase!Timmy94 wrote:That wouldn't be MUCH more than what Hands All Over debuted with (140k)... Don't you think their popularity majorly increased?
I read many expectations for Usher's album to debut with 300k+ and I think Maroon 5's current popularity is bigger than Usher's in the US atm...
Considering Hands all Over debuted with 140k in 2010, I think saying the new album might do 200k is a good prediction.
Yes, Payphone is a hit. But it's also rather poppy and we all know that a pop hit definitely need not translate into an overabundance of extra sales.
