Lil Yatchy Responds To Album Sales Fiasco

Published: Tuesday 6th Jun 2017 by David

Is Hip-Hop’s aversion for Lil Yatchy‘s pro-gay ‘Teenage Emotions’ album to blame for the modest first week sales it drew in?

Execs at Capitol will undoubtedly search high and low for the answer to that question as they find themselves faced with after watching the project welcome only 46,000 units in its opening week.

The set opened at #5 and was outsold by Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Damn’ which spent this week at #2, almost three months after its unveiling.

How Yatchy feels about it all?

Message to all my fans. I just want to thank you for giving me your all. Supporting me and backing me up when I'm not around but am always in spirit. I didn't make this 21 project for the old reviews and bloggers. I made it for real Lil yachty fans who have been dying for new music from me… that's why I put so many songs.. that's why it's mostly just me. Because it's from me to you. I understand first week numbers didn't do what most people expected but that's only because they don't understand me. They don't understand us. I don't expect anybody to. I make it for those who listen. I feel like my brand is so big and blew up so big, it blew up bigger than my actual music. Which isn't the worst situation it could be worse all I have to is make it to where my brand hype and music hype equal out.. I am back in the studio. Working on my next ep. I know what you guys (my fans) liked about the project and didn't like.. I'm putting that into consideration. It is now time to focus on my tour. Teenage Tour. Which is going to be fucking lit. A fucking experience to the young youth ready to lose there minds!!!!!!!! With this being my last few months of being a teenager I am just living with no regrets having fun and enjoying life. And that's what I did with this album. I'm glad I made it and I personally love it. Think it's awesome. I need to see everybody at the local date on the teenage tour singing there heart out. I need to meet y'all at the meeting greets and I need to know y'all' favorite song and why. Videos coming soon. To my fans. I appreciate you for riding this journey with me. I love you guys always and forever. Fuck the outsiders.. do you. See you on tour. ⛵️

    I certainly wouldn’t buy an album with that cover…

    His album was actually good

  3. NT June 6, 2017

    as long as he can tour and sell tickets that’s all that matters

      Yeah to his record label. He is under a 360 deal.

    Never heard of him, but his name…his hair…and his bizarre album cover is all too weird for my taste. Even if he does have talent (which I doubt) and his music is good (which I doubt), I wouldn’t be interested in him, based on how he chooses to present himself. Someone needs to tell him that presentation matters.

    Joe Budden made him famous…at least to me. And what brand???

    This is the same dude who said 2pac and Biggie were overrated. He also didn’t know whether or not he was signed to a 360 deal. He’s a typical naive kid who doesn’t realize his time in the spotlight is almost up.

    sorry, who?

    Flop is a flop *Kanye shrug* ?‍♀️

    Are these numbers even bad for someone who isn’t even a household name yet? I’d say a top 5 debut is much higher than expected.
