Report: DJ Khaled To Sue Billboard

Published: Monday 10th Jun 2019 by David

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.

 

News of Khaled’s fury inspired these tweets from members of the general public…

  2. truthtea June 10, 2019

    He’s bitching the same way Chris Brown and Kanye have when their egos are bruised!

  3. Tyty June 10, 2019

    He’s not as popular as he thinks he is. Frauds are no longer being tolerated in the culture. Go make Arab music and scam them. I hope Billboard blacklist him and future projects.

    • Oh Well June 10, 2019

      Wow “ Go make Arab music and scam them” you must be so full of hate you racist trash.

        What happened to her career? She’s taking a break from limelight, yet her name is still being mentioned.

      • Dear Black People June 10, 2019

        But not in a good way

    What a fu<k!n brat for real.
    Who gives a damn ? Whether those sales were counted or nope by BB, it is going to change anything to his career ?
    Nope.
    Nowadays you can be #1 yet still be a flop. It doesn’t mean anything anymore. You want to make it on the long run. Be smart.

    See, this is what happens when you have little kids who Stan numbers instead of talent. Artists start feeling insecure and unjustly angry when they’re not number one. Number ones are cool, but if that’s what you base success and your career on, you need to re-evaluate something. Worry about the music, Khaled.

    • Karter June 10, 2019

      “When you have little kids who stan numbers instead of talent” …preach! 👏🏽👏🏽

  7. Meme June 10, 2019

    I’m screaming. Lol. But billboard really needs to put clear rules up. How come some artist can sell hoodie bundles and it count? Just cut all the mess all together. Sales and streams only!

  8. Urg June 10, 2019

    Lmfao Khaled having a melt down🤣🤣🤣. Careful Khaled u might end up blackballed for life. Just ask Nicki!!🤣🤣🤣

    • Clarkson June 10, 2019

      Nicki wasnt black balled. She’s a flop and her time was up. Bye press about to debut at number 15

      • E. June 10, 2019

        Chun Li debuted at #10. Furthermore, Nicki has been black-balled. They play older songs featuring Nicki on the radio and cut her part from the songs.

      • E. June 10, 2019

        I stand corrected: Chun Li debuted at #92 and peaked at #10 the following week. That’s a big jump for someone who gets very minimal airplay. Nicki still winning. As much as the radio oversaturate everyone with Cardi B all her singles & features should debut at #1. However, that’s not the case. I’m sure Cardi will release the video for press this week or next week to try to get a #1 before that album drops. If she gets less than 3 #1s her album is considered a flop. You have to do better than your previous album to remain relevant.

  9. J June 10, 2019

    Random tweets as backing for an upset general public? Ridiculous lol. I am no way endorsing his madness but y’all need to do a little better at your smear campaign

  10. Selina June 10, 2019

    I think he is pretty cheeky to bundle his album with fitness drinks when it is clear that he is one pork pie away from my 600 pound life. It would have been better for him to bundle it with cheeseburgers or deep fried cheesecakes. That is more his lane.

    • Echo June 10, 2019

      I hate you!!! 😂😂😂😂😂

    Ciara should teach these birches a thing or two about flopping with dignity….

    • Caleb June 10, 2019

      You are so right. I never see Ciara be anything but humble no matter how low her chart placement. A real Queen.

  12. Steven gamble June 10, 2019

    DJ Kalheid has been garbage, especially in Miami… The most non-talented artist ever. Buying beats, hype media attention, story’s and all. We the people are sick of the fraud.. can’t sing, can’t dance, can’t Rap, can’t write, can’t produce…. Give us a break….🚫🚫🚫🚫🚷🚷

  13. Caleb June 10, 2019

    This is disgusting. What a sore loser. We thought it was bad when Nicki Minaj made such a big deal at being #2. This is 10x worse!

  14. Caleb June 10, 2019

    What’s with this new trend of artists bitching and whining if they don’t get #1 spot?! No one did that back in the day or even earlier this decade.

  15. Gee June 10, 2019

    The chart rules should be the same for all artists. Honestly billboard needs to make standard rules and stick to them not change them based on the artist. As for Khaled he needs to just accept that he is not always going to be #1. Also his album formula has become predictable and boring.
