Four t-pain singles in the top 20, it is a record for an act?

do you mean "act" as in solo artist or as in solo, duo, group etc? The Beatles have beaten this before. As for solo - wasn't this beaten by 50 Cent? Not sure about the latter though...

yes, it's sad but that's true. 50 Cent or Jay-Z flopped very badly (50 especially) and even Kanye isn't so strong as he used to be 2 years ago. But on the other hand R'n'B/Urban holds pretty well (thanks for Alicia and Mary) :wink:

well, things were changing earlier this year when Avril and Maroon 5 actually had #1 pop hits (because god forbid "pop" artists do well on the "pop" chart) and rappers complained that they weren't effortlessly climbing the chart as easily hitting #1 with songs nobody who doesn't listen to rap would know, and then it changed back.

Soulja Boy : biggest hit of the year (I guess)
Kanye West : 2x platinum
50 Cent, T.I., Jay Z : platinum

50 Cent is the only one of those acts that even remotely flopped. Jay-Z is at 850k and counting, he'll move a million. Just like his last album.

50 Cent, however, is dead in the water.

I don't like 50 Cent at all, but I don't believe he is at all flopping. His album passed the million mark already and is still on the chart in it's 15th week. He's not selling his normal numbers, but first week sales alone were better than most flops do in their entire run.

A true flop is J. Lo's Brave. Less than 150k sold in almost 3 months is downright embarassing. Curtis just felt the effect of a downturn in sales, just like everyone is feeling right now.

In 15 weeks including Christmas, he sold barely the same as his previous album sold the first week, to me it is an obvious flop.

true, but right now record sales are so down that anything that sells over a million is an unqualified success. Rihanna's been out for over six months and has one of the biggest hits of 2007 plus three other sizable hits and her album still won't pass 1 million by the end of the year. Curtis definately isn't a smash and it's a huge dropoff from his earlier albums, but 1.2 million isn't too bad at all considering the state of the industry we're in where 2 million is almost an impossible task if you're not The Eagles, Groban or Keys

I agree, also nobody was expecting "Curtis" to be a huge success. Actually the decline of his albums' sales is quite regular :

1st album : 8 millions (or close to)
2nd album : 5 millions
3rd album : maybe 2 millions (its sales could rebound after christmas, like Britney's album it's not really a christmas present)

basically, a career fading in the most classic way (+ music industry's crisis).

very true, plus consider that "Ayo Technology" was nowhere near the hit that Umbrella was (and don't forget Rihanna's album had Shut Up And Drive, Hate That I Love You and Don't Stop The Music), yet her album has been out double the amount of time and is still about 300,000 behind him even tho she had one of the defining songs of the year

I think it's very simple : contrary to Rihanna, he has a huge fanbase (700k in its first week !), which can prevent him from having a real flop. Actually I don't think Ayo Technology even help the sales of his album (it's not really a 50 Cent song, more like "Timberlake and Timbaland with some rapper").

Rihanna has sadly never been a major album seller in the US, I don't think she'd be a fair comparison to 50 cent.

50 cent himself did think it was going to a huge success, he had the balls to think he'd outsell Kanye West first week, which led to a lot of publicity and good first-week sales. However his overall sales are on the okay/flop side compared to his other albums. I don't see it selling 2 million at all. I don't know if I would call it a flop, maybe the better word would be disapppointment.

Yeah Rihanna has never sold well in the US. She does about a million an album and around 3-4 Million WW which isn't bad at all. But she is no where near her other female competitors like Beyonce, Fergie, and Nelly Furtado, or a change.

the importance of the "50 vs Kanye" thing has been a little exaggerated I think, I mean everybody realized that it was staged... (and it's not like there wasn't going to be publicity for his album anyway).

Embarassing for...? Jennifer Lopez? Her Fans? :roll:
I'd rather listen to some good non-selling music, than see her selling millions of crapy albums. Like she actually did.....

50 flopped becoz he released 6 pop Ass singles and ahrdly sold and before that in interviews he was saying that he can do 7 mils becoz he is on Justin Timberlake level...

No 50 cent is not On their level anymore, Fergie,Akon,NElly,JT are on another level, 50 cent went from most Popluar super star to a Rapper with 1x paltinum Palque...
