Jill Scott Aiming For No. 1 Album On Billboard 200 Chart/ Projections Continue Rising For 'Woman'
Quickly following the release of 'Woman,' the singer was predicted to sell 40-45K. Since then, projections have rose for Jill Scott, as she's now predicted to sell 55-65K copies. Along with this, Jill Scott is currently aiming for her second no. 1 album on the 'Billboard 200.'
Of course, considering that 'Woman' wasn't heavily promoted, I still consider this great numbers for Jill Scott, as she's an R&B act. Recently, R&B has been in a difficult state in terms of sales, so I congratulate Jill Scott. As I've said before, I stopped basing sales by quality, only because it depends more on how much of a popular act you're. Musically, many are aware that Jill Scott is deseriving of any success she's received, as she's a talented artist.
I discussed a few of my favorite songs from 'Woman' earlier, which were Fools Good, Can't Wait, and Lighthouse.
Though 'Woman' is released, I'm hoping Jill Scott continues to promote the album. They're many slept-on numbers from the album, that deserve recognition. The major reason, 'Woman' seems like such a quick era, is only due to promo being received for the album, quickly following the release. Much promo has been received for the album, during the week of the album release and the following week, when promo should've been received following the release of each single as well. Not saying each single should've been heavily promoted, but for example.. 'You Don't Know' was the leading single of 'Woman.' Jill released a video for the single the same day as the single release, and performed it at the 'Black Girls Rock' event. The following single releases, 'Fools Gold' and 'Closure' didn't receive the fair amount of promo it deserved. Considering both singles are released, and haven't received a video release, I'm curious on if she'll do a video release for 'Fools Gold,' considering it's doing well on the R&B charts, or for 'Closure' as it's her latest single release. Overall, congratulations are still in order for Jilly From Philly. (Oh, happy day!)
