Eminem's Anti-Trump album bombs

Postby The Green Barbarian » Dec 19th, 2017, 12:24 pm

Eminem's much anticipated new album Revival was released yesterday. It's currently projected to open with just 190-210k in sales. These numbers are incredibly poor considering a number of things: a lead single featuring Beyoncé, a highly publicized Trump diss, and his previous album's opening week of 792k copies.


Of course it bombed. Trump is cool. Eminem isn't cool.

Eminem hits clunker after clunker on “Revival,” his clumsiest record to date. It’s not just the corny jokes and goofy puns, either, although those are plenty bad. The production — by Rick Rubin, Alex Da Kid and others, including Eminem himself — is just as ungainly, with turgid rock guitars and dreary mid-tempo grooves that make this 19-track set feel even longer and more punishing than it is.

When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

Not sure if this was directed at me, but I was actually proven right, in the article you just posted! Do you actually read anything that you post? From your article:

The set is expected to debut with 280-300,000 album equivalent units, 190-210,000 of those coming from traditional album sales, according to Hits magazine’s Hits Daily Double blog.

Those figures are down significantly from Em’s last album, “The Marshall Mathers LP 2,” which sold 792,000 copies its first week in 2013. But album sales have leveled off across the board in recent years, and Billboard has implemented a different system to measure album sales on its chart since 2014.


SOOOOOO DUMBBBBBBB!!!

Washed-up rappers, incompetent reporters, an assortment of celebrity airheads, etc. I wonder whether Trump ever loses sleep over his inability to foster intelligent enemies.:138:

“You have enemies? Why, it is the story of every man who has done a great deed or created a new idea. It is the cloud which thunders around everything that shines. Fame must have enemies, as light must have gnats. Do not bother yourself about it; disdain. Keep your mind serene as you keep your life clear.” — Victor Hugo
“The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of the Conservatives is to prevent the mistakes from being corrected.” ― G.K. Chesterton April 19, 1924

I guess that reaching No1 among the people, being the most popular, isn't something that Trump supporters value.
I wonder what chart position would be seen as a success by such people.

I expect the last thing Trump ever worries about is intelligent people. He has no use for them.

coming close to what he did on his last album would be a start. Sorry, but trying to spin this latest Eminem album as a win is just dishonest and disingenuous. He's sold out to the establishment and is no longer "cool". He's trying to milk the liberal media echo chamber dwellers and finding the field already crowded with fellow non-cool has-been losers.



I was told by the liberal media alt-left fake newsers here that Eminem's album was going to be a huge success, and all it has done is sucked. But of course it sucked. Eminem isn't cool anymore.

You know the partisans are becoming desperate when they use some rappers declining album sales
as their new deflection strategy to detract from their candidate’s multiple failures.

Eminem? The white rapper who was famous for a few years and then everyone forgot about him? I didn't even know he was alive. What do washed-up rapper album sales in their mid 40s have to do with Trump?

He rapped against Trump, and someone really uncool tried to make the argument that Trump was cooler than Eminem.

In the end though, it looks like ze was proven wrong as predicted. Trump is the least popular president ever, with a popularity rating around 30% and a supermajority of Americans disliking him. Whereas Eminem’s anti-trump album was number 1 on the billboard.

It's almost as if being against Trump automatically makes someone cooler and more popular. I guess that makes Trump the antithesis of cool.
