According to reports, RAW (which stands for Real Ass Whores) is looking at around 6k to 8k equivalent units sold for its first week.

Talking to Variety about the effort in an interview published on Friday (October 20), JT expressed her desire to have RAW bring fun and happiness back to the music game – as well as silence their haters.

“I feel like it’s going to shut a lot of people up too. I feel like a lot of people are going to tune in just to have something to say, and when they finally listen to it, they’re going to like it,” she said.

She continued: “Right now, it feels like there’s a lot of people doubting us. It’s just a bitter time for a lot of people coming out of the lockdown and people feel so entitled and opinionated and it’s just popular to be hateful right now. I won’t say that people are just hating on us, I just see a lot of hate in the world. I hope that this album puts fun back into music from our direction. I hope it makes them fall back in love with us.”

RAW is the third studio album from the Miami duo, and features appearances from the likes of Usher (on the previously-released “Good Love”), Lil Durk, Muni Long, Juicy J and Kim Petras. It follows 2020’s City On Lock album – which suffered a leak before it was even announced, leading to the girls dropping it earlier than planned. The album debuted at No. 29 on the Billboard 200.

On Monday (Oct. 23), Yung Miami took to X (formerly Twitter) to address haters who drew attention to the LP’s expected first-week sales.

“6-9k first week,” one person commented under a selfie of Miami, who replied, “That’s good for a bi**h who voice y’all hate and can’t rap.” The 29-year-old was referring to those who have critiqued the way she sounds in her music.
