Céline Dion’s Album Fell Drastically Off The Charts, And She’s Not Happy About It
Céline Dion is not happy after her new album made the “biggest fall off the charts after a No. 1 debut” in history, according to Page Six.
The star’s album, Courage, debuted at number one last week, selling around 100,000 copies. But this week, it only sold 3,000.
“She’s upset,” a source told Page Six. “All hell has broken loose. The only reason she sold 100,000 was because of the whole bundle thing that labels do, but she only sold around 3,000 the second week.”
Furthermore, some people are blaming the singer’s good friend, creative director and backup dancer Pepe Muñoz, who has apparently been a concern within Céline’s inner circle. Multiple sources told Page Six he helped oust some of her senior team and has isolated her.
“Without [late husband and manager] René around, no one knows what they’re doing,” the source said. “She is being controlled by a person who has told her that René was an old guy and she should live like she’s in her 20s. That’s her state of mind.”
However, another source told the outlet she’s proud of Courage‘s debut.
“She is having so much success, and it’s just mean to rehash these Pepe stories,” the second source said. “She is living her best life. She had a horrible thing happen to her in her life, and she is out here doing her best. Her tour is doing great. She’s looking great and she is doing great. All the rest is bulls–t.”
Meanwhile, Céline launched the North American leg of her world tour on September 18. and from the first 19 shows alone it grossed $33.2 million.
Say what you want about Céline, she’s a smart cookie. Her album will live forever, just like the rest of them!
