While she won’t be able to hold off the unstoppable Adele, who is looking to top the Billboard 200 again next week with her stunning sophomore album, Marsha Ambrosius (former member of Floetry) is set to make quite a dent on the chart with her new release.
While some people may have written this album off, Marsha is making some impressive moves. Find out how much she’s set to sell & where she’ll end up chartwise.
According to Hits Daily Double, Marsha Ambrosius’ debut solo CD Late Nights & Early Mornings is set to debut at the #2 spot in next week’s album charts. The record is set to sell between 85,000-90,000 copies which is huge numbers for an R&B artist. Especially one who hasn’t shown any particularly impressive success in the genre either. Both her singles reached the Top 40 of the R&B charts (“Hope She Cheats On You (With A Basketball Player)” hit #33, and “Far Away” managed to hit #28) but nothing particularly huge.
While Marsha has definitely solidified herself as an artist by penning a track for Michael Jackson and has had features on tracks from R&B heavyweights like Nas and Jamie Foxx. But it’s not as if everyone was checking for her solo material or else she would have at least managed to get a Top 10 R&B single.
So basically, amazing job for Marsha! And R&B music as well! Artists with similar numbers would not have made their way to the #2 spot, and perhaps other R&B artists should take a similar notice of promotional strategies Marsha did. While I haven’t listened to the album, I’m also hearing very good things about it. If the numbers continue like this, she could see herself with a Gold certified album soon enough.
