Janet Jackson's New CD Bombs

10/18/2006 3:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Janet JacksonJanet Jackson has just suffered a record malfunction. TMZ has obtained the latest numbers for her new album, and it is tanking big time.

The CD debuted three weeks ago, selling 296,873 copies. The second week, sales plunged 74% to 77,240 units. The typical second week drop is 40%.

TMZ has just obtained figures for third week sales, and it's not too early to declare Janet's latest effort a disaster. Sales dropped to 42,240 units, a 45% plunge from the second week.

Janet's CD debuted at number two on the charts, dropped to number nine the second week and then went down to number 19 the third week.

So far, Janet's CD has sold 416,353 units. We're told Virgin Records stocked the stores with 1.2 million copies. We're guessing the 99¢ Only store is about to get a big shipment.

TMZ called a rep for Virgin, so far we have not received a response.

I just bought the new CD of Janets called Design of a Decade. She has a beautiful voice. I love the nostalgic older songs, and I love her newer songs. Plus she is a talented singer. I love her just the way she is. I like Janet, because like many celebrities, especially people in music, they want to stand out, crazy like Gaga or Bieber. Janet doesn't want that craziness. I think she is happy with the simple quiet life. Make a little music, do a couple movies, She does have many devoted fans that buy her stuff.
I think she has had good sales, the media is just trying to stir up trouble. That's how they make their money. She is doing just fine. If you want to see the coolest Janet Jackson watch her on youtube @ the 2009 American Music Awards. I bet you will go out and buy one of her cd's after watching that, She like her brother is a music legend! Talented and a very beautiful woman.

It's cuz she ain't Madonna and never will be. I alway*****ed this bitch! If it weren't for her brother she'd be nothing. She basically rode his coattails. Her voice sucks and she looks like a black Miss Piggy. Next stop...VEGAS REVUE!
