Janet Jackson 20 Y.O "Worldwide FLOP"

OK boys and girls its official... Janets album is a worldwide FLOP!! She failed to sell in major worldwide markets the UK, Germany, Australia and Ireland - 2 of which are the biggest markets in the world.(2/3 of the worlds music sales are from outside of the US!) Here are the chart positons for those countires in the first week as of October 1st 2006....

UK - # 63 (3K SOLD ) Ironically this is just one place higher than Justin Timberlakes reentry at #64 with his 2002 album Justified!!!!
AUSTRALIA - failed to chart in top 50 albums (no chart position given as sales less than 1000 copies)

IRELAND - failed to chart in top 100 no position given(sales of less than 750 copies)
Netherlands - #34 (roughly sales of 5000 copies)

Her furious promo blitz of the US and the Oprah effect have yet to prove their effectiveness...Will the US sales save her?? Currently she is set to be at number 2 behind ludacris with sales in the low 300k.... not the million her fans had predicted! POOR JANET!!
