“People are always shouting they want to create a better future. It’s not true. The future is an apathetic void of no interest to anyone. The past is full of life, eager to irritate us, provoke and insult us, tempt us to destroy or repaint it. The only reason people want to be masters of the future is to change the past.”—Milan Kundera
J. Cole's 'World' Album Headed for No. 1 on Billboard 200
Watch for J. Cole to debut atop the Billboard 200 next week with his first album “Cole World: the Sideline Story,” which could move as many as 240,000 - 250,000 copies by week’s end on Oct. 2, so say industry prognosticators.
If the 26-year old Roc Nation/Columbia rapper opens at No. 1, it will mark the first time a solo act’s debut album has bowed at No. 1 since May 14, 2010. That’s when B.o.B started in the penthouse with “The Adventures of Bobby Ray” with 84,000 sold according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Cole’s 200,000-plus start would be the biggest bow for any act’s debut chart effort since Nicki Minaj’s “Pink Friday” launched with 375,000 at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 dated Dec. 11, 2010.
Meanwhile, Blink-182’s new “Neighborhoods” is aiming to for No. 2 next week with around 140,000. The album is the rock trio’s first studio release since its 2003 self-titled set. It debuted and peaked at No. 3 with 313,000 sold in its first week.
Men are moved from attraction, to sex, to love. Male sexuality takes them along paths they would have never chosen for themselves. On the other hand, women move from attraction, to love, to sex. Making them more cautious.
Although women are also initially attracted by good looks, its their ears, not eyes that make them vulnerable. Instinctively, men know that their clever words motivate a woman. (Women, don’t believe everything you hear)
Following their nature, men will push for sex right away, while women tend to be guarded, up until the moment that they begin to feel that they are loved. With the inital sense of feeling true love, their guard comes down.
Deep down men know that they are only as good as the women in his life. Even if its not spoken outright, every man wants a honest woman, respectful, and someone to “bring home to mom”. At least most of them do.
