All the music sites report the first week numbers for a new album.

A good first week gets the artist good press.  A bad first week comes with clowning.

Meek Mill, whose last album Expensive Pain had a soft first week and got him clowned, isn't down with this system as it is.



"We don’t go off first week numbers," Meek typed, apparently speaking for everyone."Labels run that shit … and most of the numbers be fake … you can clearly see all the artist that’s killing sh*t!  Focus on your brand and impact!! They crashing the rap game out …. that everybody drop on Friday bs …. Wtf is that … why would you want to sell your product on the same day as the competition… for a billboard look?  lol what does that do for the artist?"

NLE Choppa is also against the tyranny of the first week numbers and offered encouragement to Coi Leray and Fivio Foreign, who both just first week flopped.

"First week numbers doesn’t determine if a album good or not. Literally says “FIRST WEEK” I’ve yet to have a album that just goes crazy first week but I’m sitting on 2 gold projects and another one working towards that.
@FivioForeign @coi_leray y’all craft is beyond perfect," he typed.
