Une petite confirmation que le R&B va très mal car l’opus strictement R&B le plus vendu de l’année est plutôt Trey Songz et il ne dépasse les 300.000. Frank Ocean, Usher, Chris Brown ont un peu plus 350-420 mais la fourchette reste bien mince pour le R&B. Les rappeurs s’en sortent mieux avec Drake, Kendrick Lamar, J.Cole mais ça reste assez moyen comme année pour la musique urbaine.

De l’autre coté,Adèle a continué de terroriser les charts avec Taylor Swift en seconde dauphine. Une équipe de choc, Pink frôle déjà le million en seulement 3 mois, tout ça est fort intéressant. Elle finira très certainement avec un  peu plus du 1.5 millions de ventes et même si je n’ai pas totalement adhéré à cet album, si ce n’est pas du tout. Je suis content pour elle, le travail visuel effectué est assez extraordinaire et les lives sont mémorables. En plus, elle n’a pas cédé à l’electro comme beaucoup d’autres ont fait. D’ailleurs on observe qu’aucun opus avec des singles electro n’a cartonné, c’est peut être de bonne augure pour la suite. Avec un peu de chances, la musique urbaine remontera un peu en 2013, c’est en tout cas, tout le mal qu’on peut lui souhaiter.
