Recap 2012: Nelly Furtado and Tulisa’s sales BOMBS

December 18, 2012

Some artists made a breakthrough and some took a step back in solidifying their music careers. Unfortunately for Nelly Furtado and Tulisa, they had a disappointing, let alone embarrassing numbers for their albums.

Nelly’s “The Spirit Indestructible” opened with just a mere 6 000 copies, debuting at #79 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart. That’s just horrible. To think how I was surprised when Ciara’s “Basic Instinct” opened with 32 000, this is surreal. On the other hand, N-Dubz songtress, Tulisa’s “The Female Boss” opened with 15 000 copies, landing her at #35 in her native country’s chart, the UK Album Chart and #55 in Ireland.

What is astonishing about Tulisa is the fact that she had the X Factor UK to use as a platform for promotion, but unfortunately, the public payed dust to her efforts. What worked against Nelly is the opposite of Tulisa’s situation, lack of promotion. She had inconsistent promo for the album. I, for one did not know when the album was going to be released. Tulisa had all the promo, just people were not buying to it and again, the fact that the album was slammed with some awful reviews made people wary.

None of these albums are as bad as people make them out to be. They are quite enjoyable and fresh, but an opinion is an opinion. Anyway, here’s hoping that these two artists will find some success during their next era.
