Album Sales Predictions: Jill Scott - 'Woman'
The predictions are officially in for Jill Scott's 'Woman.' The singer's first week predictions are 40-45K.
In all honesty, I can't say I expected such well numbers from Jill Scott, as I expected lower. Not due to the purpose of quality, but due to lack of promotion. I had just recently finished listening to 'Woman' and it has many good quality tracks on the record. A few of my favorites from 'Woman' were Lighthouse, Can't Wait, and Fools Good.
With each single release, wasn't a fair amount of promotion, which is why I didn't expect such high numbers for the singer, but I'm happy to see that R&B is still in a decent state, and that many did support the singer with her new release. Also, even better considering Jill Scott's listeners consist of an older audience. Only saying this to explain, that it's different for an artist singing to a mature audience to sell well, because music isn't the first priority for an older audience, especially with the focusing of bills and things of that nature. As for a younger audience, they are quickly alert with music releases, so that's definitely a perspective to look from.
