The First Lady of 300 Entertainment is aiming for a Top 10 debut.

(AllHipHop News) For many Hip Hop fans, Megan Thee Stallion is the chosen successor to southern rhymers such as Pimp C, Trina, Juicy J, and Gangsta Boo. Last Friday, the Hot Girl gave her loyal followers a new collection of music to carry them through the summer.

Meg's Fever arrived with a lot of fanfare on social media. HitsDailyDouble reports the mixtape is on pace to likely debut in the Top 10 on the album chart. At the moment, Fever is expected to open with 24,000 - 27,000 units. There about six other projects that are currently in the 23,000 - 28,000 range as well.

Yesterday, Megan Thee Stallion dropped the music video for "Realer." The clip collected nearly half-a-million views in the first 17 hours. In addition, her breakout hit "Big Ole Freak" has peaked at #65 on the Hot 100 chart and #23 on the Hot Rap Songs chart.

If sales didn’t matter these blogs wouldn’t do press and hype up these debuts top 10 but didn’t even sale 30k? If sales didn’t matter the industry wouldn’t merge IG streaming singles YouTube Merch and etc all into a record sale the talent so poor labels don’t wanna work fr they trying to make social media stars musicians and rockstars goin off the hype and numbers so why don’t the music numbers matter? That’s the trick to make us believe million fans on IG are supporters til the sales come back and this shit flop. How do we determine how hot artist is now then radio play? Which is bought or maybe rappin same shit online to people who didn’t even buy the music obviously y’all people ruin hip hop making excuse for all these industry plants millions of dollars go behind these artist to do 25k sales show its all fluff

No. 1-3

Sales matter but not in the way people think, especially these days. With the advent of streaming services, YouTube and Satellite radio, and as long as an artists has there publishings in order, they'll be in a good place.



Sales ain't what they used to be. Do they even matter?
