Rapper Sells 3,900 Copies of Her Album
After generating a significant buzz last year, Oakland, Calif., rapper Kreayshawn, 23, has just debuted reportedly with the worst first week album sales in music history. Kreayshawn released her There’s Something About Kreay project on Sept. 14 and has thus far has only sold 3,900 copies. According to Billboard the poor sales put her at number 104 out of the ‘Hot 200’ leaving her easily bested by G.O.O.D. Music’s Cruel Summer (216,106) and Pink’s Truth About Love that moved 280,900 units. HitsDailyDouble also reports that the numbers mark the worst first week sales for an artist — ever.
The rapper who inked a million-dollar deal with Sony Records has remained coy about the situation on Twitter. “All I can do is pursue my dreams,” she said. “Aware & Don’t care.”
By contrast, however, her over 500,000 followers and others have cascaded into the rapper’s mentions with a series of gibes about her low sales. “Damn @KREAYSHAWN since you’re album sales aren’t doing too good, you might as well drop a sextape,” wrote one critic.
“@KREAYSHAWN dropped an album and it bounced back into her hand,” added another.
Those tweets while funny, are mild compared to some of the harsh cracks others have sent the rapper’s way.
