K Michelle album sales projected for first week? After going through a rocky time with Jive Records, K. Michelle made it clear that she was bound and determined to find success with her music career. As one of the biggest stars of VH1’s hit reality TV show “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta,” K. Michelle was able to gain a number of fans, sell out shows across the country and nab a new record deal with Warner Bros. while being apart of the show. K. Michelle’s fiery personality has gotten her caught up in some drama with a few of her cast mates but it happens to be one of the things K.’s fans love about her. And it often carries over to her music as K. Michelle is not one to hold back her feelings in her songs either.

Although K. Michelle’s beef with Tamar Braxton recently started brewing again, K. Michelle is still on cloud 9 right now as her debut album “Rebellious Soul” hit stores earlier this week on Tuesday. Many people were wondering what kind of numbers K. Michelle would be able to pull in with her album, even though K. doesn’t seem to be too worried about sales at all. According to a report from Billboard, K.’s new album is on track to sell about 65,000 copies in its first week:

R&B singer K. Michelle (of VH1’s reality show “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta”) will likely debut in the top 10 with her first album, “Rebellious Soul.” The album might sell around 65,000.




  1. That’s good start in my opinion. I haven’t heard her album yet but I’m anxious to listen to it. Congrats K!!

    1. But K. Michelle didn’t have as big as a single and she’s a reality tv star and this is her first album. Ciara was a big star and could only bring in 57k. No comparison.

      1. Co-sign! Ciara had 2 platinum albums before and is a worldwide name. Kmichelle is really only known for LHH and this is her first album do the math.

  2. This is a shame that 65,000 is being considered good! What happen to the good old days like Destiny’s Child going platinum in their first week? Michael Jackson and Toni Braxton selling over 20 million copies. Is Beyoncé the only R&B artist out now that can sell multiplatinum R&B albums? No shade4 to K. Michelle this is really to address the whole genre of music and everybody in it.

    1. I agree. In this case tho I don’t think it’s so much that 65,000 is “good,” but rather it’s “good for her.” I’m thinking that because K. Michelle pretty much started off as a reality star (despite her career prior to the domestic fiasco), it’s good considering her beginnings. Someone earlier in the post quoted that Kelly did the same numbers. When you compare the two? To say that K. Michelle has the potential to sell equal if not more than an artist that has been part of a platinum selling group and a solo artist for years with multiple albums? I’d say that is good…. Artists don’t make music like they used to, and people don’t buy albums like they used to.

    2. But albums aren’t selling like they use to mainly because of illegal downloads and how the internet has evolved you can practically get albums for free. It’s only a couple of artist that can still sell real big. Then you have to look at r&b is not really selling nowadays the last r&b female albums that came out all were below 100,000 units. Brandy,Kelly Rowland,Ciara and these are known names.

      1. Agreed. And no disrespect, but all those female artists named (maybe with the exception of Brandy) are subpar in my opinion…… They’re “known” but their talent is questionable and inconsistent.

  3. I was hoping she would do better….on another note, what is up with all of that “extra” behind her? I wish women did not feel they had to overdo things….she should believe she is enough all by herself. Good luck to her either way…..

  4. Flop! Flop! Flop! Not good! No excuses! Just because you can sing doesn’t mean you will do numbers in the music industry.

    1. Tamar Braxton wasn’t a big star either. She’s known from reality show. She hit #1 on charts with love and war. ( in my Tamar voice) take several seats k.

  5. Decent numbers. But coming from someone whose been inside the biz for a couple decades, I say you must take any type of promotion (LHH) as an added advantage not an after thought.

    She is a lackluster artist and any investor (label) must ask the question will she stay relevant after she leaves the show? I personally don’t think she has the “it” factor. There are millions of girls with big a-ses that can sing. Her main appeal has been fans voyeuristic need for drama…and she delivered.

    Now she wants to be seen as level headed and respected for her art but that remains to be seen especially when she never really has anything to say other than how she is ducking from the very thing that has made her famous… Drama

    I believe at the end of it all fans will realize there is not much substance to this artist at all.
