Javier Colon’s Album Tanks On The Billboard Charts

Perhaps The Voice isn’t as powerful of an entity as we thought. Season 1 champ Javier Colon built up a lot a hype after crooning on stage for Xtina, Adam Levine, and Cee-Lo Green, but has he been able to connect with the music buying public? According to the Billboard charts, the answer is no.

Colon’s Come Through For You ranked #134 when it hit the album charts this week, selling less than 10,000 copies. That’s a far cry from the numbers pulled by the year’s other reality TV crooner, Scotty McCreery. The newest American Idol champ hit #1 with his debut, Clear As Day.

And it’s not like Javier hasn’t been trying to build buzz. The Dominican-American singer has been making appearances on shows like Showbiz Tonight and The Playboy Club to help get the word out.

But with mediocre reviews and a lack of momentum, it looks like Come Through For You may be out of luck. Let’s hope the winner of The Voice Season 2 doesn’t suffer the same fate.
