Liam Payne believes in the power of positive thinking.
Despite a massive social media following, Liam Payne’s new album, at least by the numbers, tanked.
LP1 debuted at No. 111 on the Billboard 200. That’s not a typo for 1 or 11. One hundred and eleven.
According to Chart Data on Twitter, Payne’s release sold just under 10k copies, making it the lowest charting solo effort by an ex-One Direction member to-date. It’s worth mentioning Payne’s former bandmate, Harry Styles, debuted at No. 1 with nearly 500,000 in sales.
However, if you ask Liam, the album sold 2.5 million globally.
“I’m extremely happy we hit 2.5 million album sales globally really quickly, so it is something I dreamt of as a young man and I am happy that the dream came true,” he told Gulf News.
Sure, Jan. He likely confused sales with streams – and is including some of the singles he released before the record ever saw the light of day.
