Mysteriously outranked by Travis Scott’sAstroworld album that rose an inexplicable 816% in hard copy sales (60% digital) from the previous week, DUMMY BOY moved 66,000 units while racking up millions of plays on the popular songs “TIC TOC,”“MAMA,”“KIKA,” and others.
The video for the triple platinum single “FEFE” with Nicki Minaj currently sits at nearly half a billion views, but none of that was impressive enough for Pitchfork to rate the versatile project higher than a laughable 3.4 while their staff tweets about how great the new Earl Sweatshirt and KAYTRANADA releases are at a fraction of the popularity or listenability.
Pitchfork gave the new Earl Sweatshirt project an 8.8 and Dummy Boy a 3.4. Keep up the great work lmfao.
6ix9ine still has a chance to take the top spot in his second week despite the hurdles of ongoing legal issues. He will have to outsell Meek Mill’s latest album Championships, which has received a ton of industry support including a co-sign and guest appearance from on-and-off conditional friend and collaborator Drake. He also recently made an appearance on The Ellen Show……
It seems that everything (or everyone) has been working against the success of 6ix9ine. DUMMY BOY was leaked ahead of schedule on his own website by an incompetent team forcing him to release it at an awkward time midway through a sales week, his lawyers were unable to help him post bail resulting in a lack of promotion, both Jay Z and Rick Ross took their corporate shots at him on Meek Mill’s new Championships song “What’s Free,” and he’s been sued and threatened by a variety of booking companies for missed performances.
When Billboard reported that 6ix9ine wasn’t able to secure the top spot this week, they shamefully used a branded short link with a hidden “Fuck 69” message.
they literally made the title “fuck 69” for the link and these journalists and media outlets love to act like they are unbiased when confronted about bias….whole industry shady man play it safe everyone weirdos and opportunists pic.twitter.com/G4g8rCNZSX
friends supporting friends is cool but these outlets suck eachother dick just like they did in the prime of the blog era they just speak like its in the past cause they stopped making money off old tactics they don’t know how to adapt they aint shit but glorified groupies now 🥵
