B.o.B "Strange Clouds" First Week Sales

UPDATE: The first-week numbers come in just under B.o.B's "B.o.B Presents... The Adventures of Bobby Ray."

The first week sales projections for B.o.B’s sophomore album Strange Clouds have been revealed.

According to Hits Daily Double, Bobby Ray’s latest release is projected to sell 70,000 to 80,000 copies in its first week. His debut album, B.o.B Presents… The Adventures of Bobby Ray, sold just above the projections, moving 84,000 copies in its first week. That album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, while Strange Clouds will most likely miss the top spot, as Carrie Underwood’s latest Blown Away is expected to bow atop the chart with 275,000 to 295,000 copies sold.

Strange Clouds has already spawned the platinum "Strange Clouds" featuring Lil Wayne as well as “So Good,” which is nearing platinum status.

[May 2nd]

UPDATE: According to Hits Daily Double, B.o.B.'s sophomore set 74,105 copies in its first week. Bobby Ray will also soon release the album's third single "Both of Us" featuring Taylor Swift.

  • FUck you bitch

    you guys do realize that his first album and this strange clouds album was leak right I blame low album sells on the leaks

  • Andre

    What's funny is people trying to clown Game for only selling around 100K with little to no radio play, while BOB gets pretty solid radio play and only sold 76K. S**T, even Yela's debut album with little airplay sold 50K the first week. I like the album, aside from a few songs of course, just like his first album. I'm surprised by the numbers though.

    74,000? In a recession? When even gangsta rappers can't sell? That's a pretty good week to me.

    if u heard his albulm b4 it came out and still went out to buy it, wow. His albulm was so hip-pop it's not even funny. Too many pop beats/songs...Dis albulm was a flop tho cuz he sold more first week on his debut plus he had 2 singles dat got radio play from this albulm.(Strange clouds, So good)

    The albums garbage. I wish best buy gave refunds for wackness. I would be surprised if this joint went gold. I think bob fans (and former fans like myself) brought it the first week thinking it would be as good as his last album. If Lil B was given a taylor swift budget he could make a better album then what bob has presented us with.

    • Dice Man Dan

      This album is not garbage! This, coming from a 56-yo man who is "not supposed" to be listening to this stuff! I bought this album not the first week but the very day it was released! I do not want a refund! I am gonna keep this album (why?), 'cuz they got Nothin' On You B.o.B (n-n-n-nothin' on you B.o.B, n-nothin' on you)! I don't exactly see you doing a better job than B.o.B, YHN! I went and bought the album even after getting to listen to all the tracks on YouTube for free! There must be a very good reason why this 56-yo man has both B.o.B albums in his collection! YHN, you can really use a wish right now wish right now wish right now!

    hahahah, this is exactly what i expected. "Strange Clouds" --> reached Plat coz of Lil Wayne "So Good" --> #11 on billboard; not that good as "Airplanes"(#2) & "Nothin on You"(#1) as a single-selling artist, he did very wack job compared to his debut thing. this record sales was predictable. I assume next week sales will drop to 20,000-30,000; still optimistic number, though. if he aint go #1-#2 hit on the next single, he will flop....hard.

    Honestly, record sales don't mean shit!! It doesn't determine the quality of the music. Every artist has their fanbase whether it's a million fans or a thousand. The fact is B.o.B is more talented than about 95% of the rap game...what other rapper (Andre 3000) can rap, sing, produce hip-hop tracks, play guitar. bass, and piano?? B.o.B will have a long career because talent trumps hype and popularity every time.

      @ Ricky The economy in 2008 wasnt much better then it is right now, FACT His popularity is dropping, deny it if you want I dont need YM fans to co sign that statement to know its the truth Plus, as you can see from Adele selling almost 9 million and Lady Gaga barely selling 2 Million even when offering them at .99 cents a piece, its bigger then hip hop The trends of the last few years have run their course and are going out of style, all this over-produced hip hop with there faux -"Epic" Pop music feel just arent registering with fans the way they did 2 years ago Pretty Soon Alex Da Kid beats & songs about Simping & being whipped will go the way of Crunk, Shiny Suits & Polka Dot outfits

    • Ricky

      what a stupid analogy. you could say the same thing about every artist in music. just compare eminem's eminem show first week sales to recovery. no shit there is a big difference, the economy changed, and we entered the age of the internet. NO SHIT the numbers are lower when you compare Carter III sales to Carter IV sales! carter 3 was released in 2008! That is the worst analogy! the fact that wayne did 2million in 2011 is even more impressive. But Bob's albums are only 2 years apart. same economy, same internet. and it still sold less! That's BAD

    • Anonymous

      stupid commment. drake sold 200k more than his debt. wayne is consisting in the milli range. when numbers are up there in the high hundred it is more acceptable and accepted for them to fluxuate within the approximation. but below 100k??? that is just alarming. and what i dont get is one minute you say they are buyign their own albums, the next you are saying they sold less than they should have. you keep conveniently switching your story just to put a negative spin on the rappers you dont like. stop contradicting yourself. stop making excuses for this poor performance. there is none. big sean sold more on his debut than bob on his 2nd album. THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG. @im enjoying my life? do you have any statisitic to verify that "funny" claim? could you even name me 10 rock bands/pop stars? off the top of your head without google? stfu then.every genre has it one hit wonders and legends. the term one hit wonder came from pop music in the first place. you are talking out of your ass.

    • hellno

      you may be right. you see sales from b.o.b. and lil wayne going down, with people like kendrick lamar and big krit getting bigger.it would be very refreshing to be able to turn on a top 40 radio station and hear some good hip hop

      Well, do the math The Carer 3 sold 3 million copies The Carter 4 sold 2 million copies Thats a decline of a million copies, plus the reviews were mostly negative, I expect the next one to do less Dont get me wrong I aint saying his "Career is over" or anything, he'll still be around but I think he's peaked commercially, he'll never again be as big as he was in 08-09 Summin new is around the corner

    • Riiight

      Drake and Nicki are WAY more popular than he is though. Most people still don't know he is...and some people only know him from "Nothin on you" and "Airplanes". Plus he was away from the mainstream for almost two years. These days fans just move on to the next hottest artist and forget the other guys. His mixtapes were for the underground...he's good and so is the album. You're probably one of those people that think an album sucks if it doesn't sell a lot...that's not the case.

    • Json

      Keep in mind a lot of labels BUY a ton of albums to boost sales. I wouldn't be surprised if Nicki, YCM, etc all just buy back 100-200K copies to boost the soundscan so they can make more money off the branding and licensing.

    • Roy

      you sound unreasonably optimistic. his debut dropped in 2010. 600k in 2 years? drake did that in one week. nicki did that in 2 weeks on her debut! and no, "that's good in 2012" will not work as a justification for poor numbers. Alot of big artists are doing waaaaaay more acceptable numbers than 76k! a guy of bob's stature should not be pushing 76k in the first week under any circumstances. there's is no spin you can put on this to make it sound worse. and when you factor in the fact that his debut sold MORE, or, as you put it, similar, something is seriously wrong. he's had a longer time to establish himself and build his fanbase, big publicity, and big features, and not only does he fall short of 100k, but also sells LESS than his debut album. there is NO WAY you can make this sound positive. next you'll be telling us the upsides of a brain tumor.

  • Intelligent Soulja Boy

    I dont understand this at all, He had hit singles, his music is kinda pop(so i assume the label gives it a huge push). Of course these are just projections but he should atleast do 200 000k a week. It jus goes to show you that he has alot of fake fans

    • gok

      You do realise that 200,000k is 200,000,000 which would make his album that best selling album of all time...

      these are the official numbers not projections. this is why its better to be an album artist than a singles artist. people value your art more and are more likely to support/purchase it as a collectors piece. when your fans value your ability to make a soundtrack they appreciate your work more. but youre right he clearly has alot of fake fans who only think he's good for a couple of singles. its a shame..

      those are good points, he got big stars on his album to do low numbers like that, but at the same time.. it's only his second album in. People know who he is, but they don't KNOW. after Airplanes/Magic/Nothin on You blew up, he went under the radar for a while. around the whole E.P.I.C. mixtape release, he was really in the public eye.

  • Dont Hate Articulate

    As a fan of B.o.B I have to say this past album pretty much was awful. I can listen to maybe 2/3 songs. His verses are half of the time worse than the chorus by a feature.

  • Riiiiight

    How can you idiots say an album is a flop based on FIRST week sales?? It he sold this much in over a year then THAT is a flop, but come on!! His last album first week sales were low and he went on to sell around 600k after he toured and released more singles...AND no the album doesn't suck because it's not strictly hip-hop. It is a great album from a talented dude!!

  • Goldie

    So much stupidity on here. B.o.B has been making this type of music since he came out, it's just not as much rap as before. He's always had all different genres on his mixtape and previous album. With that said, I'm surprised he didn't sell more because his last album went gold and he had three different platinum singles so I thought he'd have a bigger fan base. Strange Clouds the single is platinum and So Good is almost platinum. Album will pick up as he releases more singles and I don't know what the promotion for this album was like. I bought it and I'm happy with my purchase.

  • gok

    Gotta say I'm surprised by these numbers. BOB won't get dropped anytime soon with his singles doing the numbers they are but album sales are weak. You'd expect 2nd time round he's known and established a bigger fan base, and would sell 150k. Yet he'll struggle to get halfway to gold.

      I don't understand this opinion. Going back to B.o.b's unsigned EP's, everything he's done has been poppy. This isn't like, a new thing. His first album was pop oriented as well. Sell-out means you change your style for the sake of sales. Recovery was a sell-out album, this was not.

    I'm sorry that so many people are let down from this album, I feel sorry for their closed minded perception. If you like B.o.b's early mix-tapes and say he's gone mainstream is ridiculous. You believe that a rapper should stay a rapper and god forbid he has the versatility to intertwine rap with rock and soul. This album is being critiqued on its rap merit, which it has (Bombs Away, Play for Keeps, Out of My Mind, Strange Clouds). When however it should be judged as an overall music album, he has widespread talent that will not be embraced due to the fact that people don't like to have the rap games boat to get rocked.

      by your logic, everyone who has high first week sales only do so because of buzz. and everyone who has low first week sales are destined to sell hundreds and thousands of copies in the following weeks because of no buzz. i understand what you were saying but it just doesnt make sense. its almost like you're trying to make it seem like selling more in the first week is somehow worse than selling less. which is just an absurd statement.

      You missed my WHOLE point!! I'm saying people rush out the first week and buy those albums because of the buzz, but they don't sell that much after that...I didn't say he would sell as much...but he probably will once he drops more singles.

      most rappers sale 200-300k first week and barely go gold 8-9 months lol you made that up. a rapper who sells 300k first week has a much better chance of going gold than a rapper who sells 80k in the first week. let's get a grip here

    Not a flop, but below expectations nonetheless. It was a good album, about as good as his first imo. I expected him to sell 150k.

    for a rapper of his stature that's very alarming for a 2nd album.

    It is a flop. Deal with it.

    garbage, wack album from a corny rapper, no surprise this is a flop

  • Truth

    Who cares? The album sucks. B.o.B. thinks he's Andre 3000, and has Nelly's skill set.

    He's not a flop. The story tells you that he is on the same pace as last time. The difference is, he had hit records that kept his sales going before. They weren't huge in the first week but they sustained due to his cross over appeal, starting with "Nothing on you". He doesn't have that same record so far. But maybe he has it on his album. we'll see. Definitely not a flop though.
