Top 5 Floppiest Albums of 2014... So Far

By  August 11, 2014

With releases from big name artists from Adele to One Direction, Kanye West to U2 and even Coldplay (another one already!?) anticipated to be released before the year ends, let's relieve the... biggest flops of 2014 thus far!
 


 

1)      Paula – Robin Thicke

Fresh off one of the biggest songs of the year Blurred Lines, one would expect Robin Thicke to reign supreme with the follow-up to Blurred Lines, right? Wrong. It ended up being in the Top 40 for only 1 week, selling only 24,000 copies in the US in its first week. And it didn’t help him get his wife back either, a lose-lose situation for poor Mr Thicke.


2)      A.K.A. – Jennifer Lopez

The multi-platinum recording artist failed to meet all expectations with her eight studio album, A.K.A. After a string of wildly successful singles including On The Floor, which went on to sell 8.4 million copies worldwide, A.K.A. fell flat. Despite her performance on Good Morning America, it failed to generate interest in the album. Selling only 33,000 copies in the US in its first week, it’s Jenny’s lowest selling album to date.


3)      Supermodel – Foster the People

The sophomore album of indie pop band Foster the People was heavily promoted by Columbia Records, a huge mural was painted of the album’s cover and a free concert was held in Los Angeles, California. None of its three singles charted on Billboard Hot 100, and the album sold 54,000 copies in its first week.


4)      Me, I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse – Mariah Carey

The album’s initial first single Triumphant (Get’em) failed to generate any interest whatsoever. Fast forward 1 year later, we got the highly successful #Beautiful. Mariah’s label failed to release her album then, only releasing it another year later. Interest was lost, promotion wasn’t there and we got Mariah’s weakest album sales since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking sales in 1991, selling only 58,000 copies in its first week before falling off the Top 40 in its third week. However sales do not necessarily equate to talent, as Mariah remains one of the best female powerhouses of all time.


5)      Louder – Lea Michele

Glee star Lea Michele could have had a hit album in her hands should she released the album when Glee was at it’s peak. Despite the talented Sia Furler writing her lead single, Cannonball flopped hard, peaking at #75 on Billboard Hot 100. It failed to generate interest for the album, selling only 62,000 copies in its first week. Perhaps Lea should stick with covering songs on Glee and acting… for now.
