AceShowbiz - Hitmaka thinks someone is to blame for Saweetie's alleged low album sales. After the first-week sales projections for the raptress' newest EP "The Single Life" came in, the megaproducer weighed in on it, saying that "someone gotta get fired."
"Saweetie selling 2k is bad A&R vibes. Someone's supposed to tell u this ain't it!" Hitmaka tweeted on Friday, November 25. "I also have issues with her having multiple platinum singles & not sticking with same formula that got her here. Someone gotta get fired."
Knowing well how the industry works and having become the vice president of A&R at Atlantic Records in 2020, he added, "That's why I can't stand analytics! People couldn't wait to not have to stand on gut feelings & goosebumps!" He continued, "If it's trending u sign them & it doesn't work it takes away being accountable for what u signed. Now u can lean on 'oh the numbers said' …… MANNNN F*K ALL DAT."
Hitmaka isn't the only one giving his two cents on Saweetie's album sales. Sonny Digital thinks "the math" didn't add up considering her massive Instagram followers. "13 million followers , hundreds of thousands likes on all pictures but album sold less than 2000 copies. That's crazy. The math ain't adding up," he tweeted.
The record producer added, "If I had millions of followers and my album sold 2k I probably would just delete all my social media cause y'all lying to me. Before I came here to give my opinion I did listen to the album. I actually listened to everything that dropped that day. Just out of curiosity to see what the competition was on."
Meanwhile, DJ Vlad blamed the rumored low album sales on Saweetie for turning down an interview on his platform. "If Saweetie did a VladTV interview she would have easily done 10x her first week sales, which was 2000 copies. We actually reached out through one of our people and were told 'she won't do Vlad.' Her Loss," so he claimed.
DJ Akademiks brought the report of the first-week sales projections for Saweetie's album. The blogger said that "The Single Life" only sold 2,000 units in its first week, though he cannot verify the report.
