Drake fans are clowning him on twitter right now. It's no wonder Interscope had Eminem tweet that random promo tweet after the 1st day. They were trying to boost Kendrick's streams.

J. Cole’s 12 song project outselling Kendrick’s highly anticipated return to music is the most shocking sh*t about any of this honestly



I always thought Cole was third in the big 3 but that may have changed in the past few years

Kendrick dropped a double weedplate album and the only quotable line off it is about his trans auntie

Of course he fell off

In argumentation theory, an argumentum ad populum (Latin for "appeal to the people")[1][a] is a fallacious argument which is based on claiming a truth or affirming something is good because the majority thinks so




literally illogical to think that one album is better than another one just based on sales numbers

Damn had that T shirt bundle which played a part in total sales as every shirt that included a digital download was included as a copy sold


I dont think Cole ever really took advantage of the bundle era like that. I could be wrong tho

It's pretty simple. He's leaving TDE, and got no push from them for this album. And still cleared 250k.

If he can keep that level once he starts releasing on pglang, he won. but ever since 50 started the numbers game, these kids chase numbers instead of ownership

Nah thats definitely not it. Theyve been promoting it over a month. Even announced sales predictions a month ago trying to drum up hype. Only time an album has had sales predictions before it was even on pre-order. Then they put out those fake predictions earlier this week trying to make it look like the album was doing better than it really was.

with no marketing, promo from his label and no bots, server farms, purchased streams?

its doing amazing numbers. i wish this trend would stop though. u can manufacture a hit single. u can buy streams. u can buy youtube views. so why are fans chasing these numbers? if u aren't in the industry or an aspiring a&r or something, this sh*t should be irrelevant.

Promoting it where? He put out a text document on his website that said it's coming on this date. He did the Heart pt. 5 a week in advance, and dropped. TDE didn't even clear out for the drop, they were putting out loosies during his sh*t And you can't be serious, believing a record label puts out or funds the sales predictions

A record label ain't gonna promote an artist that is leaving. They're already in the green on Kendrick, why would they boost his stock before he leaves the door

After a 5 year hiatus, these are bad numbers.

Especially when people compare his level of popularity to Drake and Drake moves 600K like it’s light work in a first week

Kendrick would’ve been better off dropping after the Drake and Kanye drops. Because his album is better. Just a shame his numbers are poor

that's promo in 2022

what you expect a commercial on tv like its 2003?

this album had plenty of promo

when you don't drop enough music, fans move on, a lot of people who listened to kendrick obviously moved on
