While this may not be considered a blockbuster number, it’s important to remember that album sales have shifted significantly in recent years with the rise of streaming platforms.
Many artists now rely heavily on streaming numbers to gauge the success of their albums.
According to HNHH Social users have had plenty to say about In Pieces. “Who cares where it charted? It was an amazing project,” one person insisted. In response, someone else chimed in, “It seemed rushed, I didn’t like it.”
Elsewhere, some blamed Beyoncé’s lack of support as a reason for Chlöe’s flop, while others accused her fans of not showing out for her in the way that they should.
“If her fanbase wouldn’t compare her to artists 30x bigger than her and actually bought her music this wouldn’t have happened,” they wrote alongside a GIF of an exasperated Bad Bunny pouring himself a drink.
Further down in the replies, another fan reminded us that Doja Cat’s Hot Pink project sold just 7.9K units following its debut, ultimately landing at #93 on Billboard‘s ranking.
Even with such low initial numbers, the Planet Her hitmaker has still gone on to have a successful career, in the same way, that the “Surprise” songstress is bound to as well.
It seemed rushed I didn’t like it

Beyoncé nasty for not promoting Chloe’s album ? a simple IG repost would’ve probably gave Chloe a top 50 debut.
mind you if this was Nicki’s artist, they would’ve dragged her to hell and back

People predict album sales for every artists that drops. Chloe Bailey is set to sell EVEN LESS than she was originally predicted to sell ? so clearly what she’s doing isn’t working for her! But fans are so delusional they will say anything to deflect away from that

I like @ChloeBailey album it’s definitely solid. I would say add some length to the songs these lil shorts ain’t it .. But these expected sales make me sad for her, I hope this doesn’t break her spirit. –
