    Less than his collabs album which he kept insisting wasnt a real album, when it had like 10 music videos, multiple radio singles and playlist pushing with the most high profile collabs in ages 😂

    He shouldve called that “-“ and that would conclude his 4 albums quadrilogy then put this out as a throw away album to be an excuse for an underperformance.

    Sidenote: im not an ed hater, i just dont like that he has a hyper focus on chart success and numbers in literally every interview and in his last era kept calling the collabs album “not a real album” to compensate for its expected underperforming compared to his last albums. Truth is divide was his peak and he knew it, and he went super commercial with the collabs as that led to “=“. Will be interesting to see if he goes back to basics with the next one and continues a downtrend (numbers wise).

      Yaaaaaaaaas we love Summer because she shows Normani how it’s done 💯🤳🏽💋

        Chile, Summer can’t even perform without a panic attack. Maybe she showed Zayn.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 November 7, 2021

        Normani can’t release an album or perform without lip-syncing.
