Tekashi 6ix9ine's first-week sales have dropped from 150k to 50k.
The reason for the plummeting drop? The new bundling rule! This renders his streams ineligible. Big Sean's projections having been amended to 110k, soo he'll be rounding out the week with the number one album.
"This what happen when you go against the voice lol ima our sell him with my eyes closed," Lil Durk, said referencing his own album that's set to drop in October.
Blueface also chimed in.
"Dam he would still be alive rn if n***s ain’t gas him up," he remarked.
The new rule that is affecting Tekashi is that..
Billboard will no longer count album sales bundled with merchandise and concert tickets for its charts.
- Albums sold with merchandise or concert tickets must be promoted as an add-on for those purchases in order to be counted on its charts.
- Physical albums or singles sold as a bundle with digital downloads will no longer be counted as digital sales. This eliminates “spontaneous” non-manufactured items being used to influence first-week chart rankings,”
- Physical item will ONLY be counted in the official tally once it is shipped to the consumer.
This development is still unfolding, but expect 6ix9ine to weigh in.
Tekashi 6ix9ine dropped "Tattle Tales" with the music video, "TUTU," with Blac Chyna in the video, who makes her presence known with pink boots and sprinkles.
The album includes Nicki Minaj, Smilez and Akon.
