How many millions of dollars did they spend building the buzz to sell < 500k albums?

This is not necessarily a flop.when was the last time a rapper did 400k? Those are great numbers but I think for the buzz he had he failed. I don't know why Wayne said he would sell a milli. He should have done 500k plus with he promotion and hype but hey...he didnt... Maybe people are starting to realize that this dude isn't a very good artist.

It isn't a flop let's call it a dissapointment.

And btw quit saying good look for hip hop....this isn't hip hop this is POP RNB

Platinum in Canada is 100,000..barely even worth mentioning.

Yeah, its kind of a flop considering all the hype. But then again the album was only 14 tracks including 2 old songs and one real skip track (Cece's Interlude) leaving it to just 11 new songs really. Honestly, the average person would find it useless to buy it just for 11 songs. This is why artist need to go back to 16-20 songs an album.

Album was about 6 months too late. Still 462K is by no means a "flop"

When was the last time you or any of your friends have bought an album? I havent bought one in over 9 years since I was in jr High. I'm pretty sure most people aree like me and get s**t for free. So 462,000 is not a flop when you consider who is buying the album. Miley Cirus goes plat cuz her audience actually buys albums. Get a Clue man
9 years?, do you even have a car?. Anyways last two I got was OB4CL2, Wu Massacre, but see unlike them this 23 year old guy is expected to dominate the market. Consider who is buying what?, this guy flopped considering he has the Rnb Realm that actually buys albums and where probably most of these sales came from.

Clearly most they didn't come from the hip hop realm, his twink fans here didn't buy his album I know that's for sure, yet now want to brag about his "good sales" get the f**k out of here!

those are really good numbers, its even hard for veteran artists to break 200K in their first week

People think almost going gold your first week is a flop?

Drake wins.

I like how people are saying "for his debut"


Debuts usually sell the most...
Uhhh...no they don't. An artist's following/fanbase usually grows the most after their debut album. Did we already forget who 50 Cent is?

The N..already 9 posts in this thread all negative, you trying to set a record?

I am just making fun of these twinks that most likely didn't even buy the album, yet want to
brag about these being "good sales", this is all fun here my dude get off these nuts, you're the one probably mad over this.

That isnt including his sales in Canada though right?
I know he sold alot there aswell. Wonder what he sold in UK.

This isnt my type of music but i gotta give him some props for hustling and selling nearly 500k at a tough time for music sales.
