Alicia Keys ‘Girl on Fire’ Album First Week Sales Projections Are Weak

Melinda Tommy | November 28, 2012

While Rihanna is soaring on charts on two continents, Alicia Keys is set to have the biggest disappointment in her musical career.

Keys is set to sell between 150-175k units of her newly release album “Girl on Fire” – her lowest debut during the 15 years she has been in the music industry.

Despite the poor numbers the “If I Ain’t Got You” and “No One” singer will have the number one record in the country.

Gone are the days when R& artists used to sell half of a million during the first weeks.

The actress and activist has been on every show and has conducted interviews with countless magazines in order to promote the project – but as we can clearly see it was mostly in vain.
