Chris Brown’s “Breezy” First Week Sales Forecasts Out
Chris Brown’s fans are pleased to see the father of three make a bold return with his 23-track, feature-heavy Breezy album after a protracted absence from music release.
The album’s lead songs included “Iffy,” “WE (Warm Embrace),” for which the R&B artist enlisted Normani to sensually dance with him in the music video, and “Call Me Every Day,” which also featured WizKid. The project was out at midnight on Friday.
The recently released first week sales projections from Brown’s tenth studio album show that it’s unlikely to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 200 despite the praise it has received thus far (especially from Tory Lanez, who sings on “Bad Then A Beach” and claims that Breezy is about to “f*ck the whole summer up”).
A surge in Bad Bunny streams, new releases from Lil Durk (the Chicago native dropped off the deluxe cut of his 7220 project this weekend), and country singer Luke Combs will likely place the Virginia native, who is expected to sell 60K–70K copies in the coming days, in the top 10, but we won’t know for sure until next week.
The estimates for Drake’s Honestly, Nevermind (210K-230K), Kevin Gates’ much awaited Khaza album, and Logic’s comeback with Vinyl Days were all interesting last weekend.
The latter two were closely contested, but many have remarked that even for well-known musicians like these, sales have steadily declined in recent years. For instance, Breezy’s previous release, Indigo, sold 108K units in its first week of release back in 2019; this is significantly more than what he’s doing now.
