Kelis has been known to drop a hot single every now and then, but as of July 14, her album “Fleshtone” is experiencing dismal sales. Her career has seen its highs, and its dead spots, and never really seemed to take off. For those that don’t know,Â Kelis finally found mainstream success in the U.S. in 2003 with her Billboard Hot 100 top five single, “Milkshake”; this helped to propel her third album, Tasty, to sell over 400,000 copies in the U.S in only two months. But sales for Kelis album Fleshtone are awful to say the least, and NO WHERE near Tasty’s numbers.
According to Hits Daily Double, Kelis only sold 7833 copies, and came in at #46 on the US Chart this week. With all the national and international promoting she did, it didn’t seem to pay off. I guess Ms. Nas will never have his type of star power.
