Tough week on the charts for the season 2 soundtrack of Empire!
The very popular show didn’t seem to connect with music fans this week, flopping pretty hard in the US with just 25,000 albums sold in its first week.
To put that into perspective: the season 1 soundtrack sold 130,000 first-week albums, even going so far as to do better on the charts than Madonna‘s Rebel Heart!
Plus, the season 2 album didn’t just lose badly to Adele‘s Hello — which set a few records, no big deal — the Empire soundtrack also lost this week to Adele’s 21 AND 19 albums!
But… 19 has been out for SIX YEARS!!!
Did U get the Empire soundtrack?! What’d U think of it??
