Jermaine Dupri Slams Sexyy Red’s Album Sales

Lyndon Abioye |

Sexyy Red is one of the biggest rap artists out but her album is still on track to do lukewarm numbers and Jermaine Dupri wants people to wake up.

“People gotta stop lying,” he said. “That’s the beginning of the answer…The industry still tries to make you believe that if you a hot artist and you got a single, that selling albums don’t matter. Akademiks posted today about Sexyy Red album only doing 28,000 copies,” Dupri said at the United Masters’ SelectCon conference in Atlanta.

Sexyy Red’s album, In Sexyy We Trust, has features from Drake and Lil Baby but is getting poor reviews from the fans.

He continued, “In the era that I came in the music industry, if you sold 28,000 copies, you didn’t get no other chance to walk in the building again. N-ggas was not talking to you if you sold 28,000 records. It’s such a disconnect between people understanding the streaming situation and actually what you looking at. I came from an era where the numbers were 80,000 100, 200, 800, 900. This feels like it’s going backwards to me.”

Is Jermaine Dupri right?
