Only ROD will point that out, as usual...

Do you all remember his thread back in 2014, go search it under his user profile. He wrote that no new Prince album will ever make the Billboard 200 again... Yet every single released album so far did... lol lol

By the Way I was right. In his lifetime, Prince never reached the Billboard 200 again with à new album. That was the deal and you know it. . I could have never predicted his death two years After. Him alive, he would have never allowed his music on Spotify. . Since his death, Prince only ranked in the charts his already released albums and greatest Hits. Nothing new. . This is not going to change, since neither Sony nor Warner wants to release à studio album with new material. . So my prédiction is still correct, and Will stay that Way à long, long time I m afraid. . By the Way, what do you think that I was the first here to deduce the Sony deal was about dematerialised-only music? When everybody was talking about physical re-release, expanded éditions and unreleased tracks? [Edited 6/29/18 15:51pm]

PLECTRUM ELECTRUM, AOA, HITnRUN PHASE 1,2 all charted before his death ROD... We already went over this discussion in that imfamous thread of yours. lol

AOA and PLEC charted before I made this statement...You really out of your mind.
.
Hnr2 charted After his death.
.
You re right for Hnr1 though : it charted at #48...What à great achievement. How could I ever forgot this ? It just shows you how great his potentiel sales for a new studio album are.
.
So I should have told Prince would never crack the top 40 again. Not very glorious too.

Good new for some I suppose. I'm unsure that some albums that weren't exactly massive sellers on original release will sell well second time around. They need to box set some of these with extras. Repackage some too. I hate that fat bastard jewel case on Emancipation, Crystal Ball too for that matter. I might double-dip on some if there's a reason to, otherwise I'm good.

Yeah, we'll, we'll try to imagine what silence looks like.

I might buy Lovesexy again if it's tracked, but then, how many here would complain because "that's not how Prince wanted it".



Maybe he just wanted that in Europe. My CD was always tracked. Our record stores were also not frightened by a naked black man on the cover either. No hiding it, but i digress.

Trolls are out in full force it seems.

While we're rewriting history, can we say Prince played to a string of near empty theaters during P&M? Or that the SNL he played in support of AoA/PE was the lowest rated episode in the history of television and Lorne Michaels saved the show from cancellation by pledging to NBC that Prince was banned from ever making another apperance. :lol:

Both are about as realistic as Purple Rain Deluxe tanking or Prince never making the Billboard 200 (AoA/PE/HNR1/HNR2 all charted and PRD caused it to rechart #5)

Sometimes correcting a fake news isn't so much for the person posting it than for the other people reading it. When I argue with a flat earth believer, a creationist or an anti-vaccine, I know I will never convince them. But I may convince the other people reading our conversation.

Yes, exactly this. From the point of view of the Estate, this is not as much about making money, as it is about love for his music and legacy. Making everything available to streaming services, and via other online resources (website, YouTube channel), and making it available under one roof, to me, is a necessary step to make sure his music lives on.

Now, of course, Sony hopes to cash in on the deal, with as minimal effort as possible. I'm sure hardcore fans will start buying again, and new fans will follow, if only for singles and newly discovered rarities.

As a completist, and fan of his life and legacy, I am happy with this deal.

No, the first week of sales was about 35.000 of the deluxe 2cd+3 cd version.
You really don t know what you re talking about. You have a selected memory : I postes the source from HDD and Billboard à few weeks ago. The others sales was the regular album, feeluup...I already explained you ten Times..You are in à processus of overestimating salesxand denyibg soundscan and HDD sales.
.
That is you Who lives in your strange World : you claimed that Batman sold 11 millions worldwide.
.
When I Saïd that Prince Will never chart à new studio album again in the top 200, alive of course, I was only wrong for Hnr1, which chartes at an unglorious #70 during his lifetime.
.
Do you really think this is something to brag about? Lol
.
You were even saying last year that Wb was going to release more reissues, while I was trying to make you understand this was impossible considering the low sales.
.
While everybody didn t understand the Sony music announcement, I was the first here to clarify there won t be any physical release, no deluxe reissues, only streaming services. Pure Logic based on sales.
.
Say what you Will my analyses is much more relevant than yours, considering you don t accepté actual sales.

1. No the first week sales were not about 35,000, they were in fact

It debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 with 52,000 copies sold.

2. I never claimed Batman sold 11 million, in fact if you look at my thread here: http://prince.org/msg/7/455114

I state that I don't believe Batman ever sold 11 million and was asking why the Prince estate stated that it sold that high when it didn't.

3. The world is round Rod, not flat.

Just to prove my point about ROD, here are some of his recent posts just this week always saying Prince doesn't sell well:

1. "1. What become of the greatest Hits albums? Are they part of the deal? Or were they simply forgotten? They are the only Prince albums that are selling, with Purple Rain of course."

2. "But they won t reissue his albums at all! An album such as Lovesexy sells maybe 5000 ex a year in the USa...what would be the point?"

3. "I highly doubt it. Look at the sales of Purple deluxe : very low. And it contains not only the b sides, but 75 minutes of unreleased music.
Many orgers didn t buy and Will never buy it"

4. "What I m speculating from the sales of the PR deluxe édition, and the lack of réaction from both the estate and Warner"

5. "By the Way I was right. In his lifetime, Prince never reached the Billboard 200 again with à new album. That was the deal and you know it. Since his death, Prince only ranked in the charts his already released albums and greatest Hits. Nothing new."

6. "Hnr1 though : it charted at #48...What à great achievement. How could I ever forgot this ? It just shows you how great his potentiel sales for a new studio album are. So I should have told Prince would never crack the top 40 again. Not very glorious too."

I could go on an on about ROD and how he only posts about how Prince doesn't sell well....

ROD you always predict and make up facts and then in the end everything you say is 100% wrong. Here is your post and your prediction about PR DELUXE SALES:

ROD: "I predict 55/60.000 sales woldwide for the first week, below U2's Joshua Tree (not even talking about Sgt Peppers). Shame on WB."

FACT: First week world wide sales: 94,000.
