DJ Khaled is said to be enraged that his new album didn’t outsell Tyler the Creator‘s new album in the United States and, according to Page Six, is planning to teach Billboard a lesson it will never forget!
Full story below…
Tyler’s new album ‘IGOR’ received a wave of stellar reviews and higher sales than Khaled’s fun-filled set ‘Father of Asahd’ which is said to have rubbed the DJ the wrong way.
Now, a new report claims that he is sharpening his legal tools to carve out a lawsuit he hopes will punish Billboard for discounting more than 100,000 sales of the set. Sales, which were generated as part of a bundle deal with an energy drink.
Page Six says…
We’re told Billboard had agreed it would count downloads from Khaled’s energy drink package, which sources in the artist’s camp say amounted to more than 100,000. Billboard later backtracked, disqualifying Khaled’s entire sales from the promotion, arguing there were “anomalies” in his figures. Page Six has exclusively learned that lawyers for Khaled have fired off a letter to Silvio Pietroluongo, SVP of charts and data development at Billboard.
