Bon Jovi’s Latest Album Breaks Unwanted Chart Record

Bon Jovi’s new album Forever seems to have failed to make a lasting impact on the charts.

According to Forbes, after debuting at No. 5 in its first week of release, the album dropped out of the Billboard 200 album sales chart the following week. If it does not return to the chart, Forever will become the first Bon Jovi studio album to remain in the Top 200 for just one week.

The band’s previous album, 2020’s 2020, which was delayed due to the pandemic, managed to stay on the chart for only two weeks. It debuted at No. 19, then plunged 126 spots before leaving the chart for good.

With singer Jon Bon Jovi’s medical issues casting doubt on their future tours, the band tried to promote Forever through a comprehensive media campaign. This included the release of the documentary series Thank You, Goodnight: The Bon Jovi Story. The series highlighted how Jon was diagnosed with loose vocal cords after struggling to perform during their most recent tour. The documentary also covered his surgery and intensive recovery process.

Last month, Jon Bon Jovi confirmed he remains unable to embark on a full-scale tour to support the new album. “It’s a work in progress,” he shared with The Guardian. “There’s no miracle. I just wish there was a light switch. I’m more than capable of singing again. The bar is now: can I do two and half hours a night, four nights a week? The answer is no.”

To celebrate the opening of his new Nashville bar and restaurant JBJs on June 7, the band played a surprise five-song set. They performed Forever‘s debut single “Legendary” along with classics such as “You Give Love a Bad Name” and “Born to Be My Baby.”
