This month, Kreayshawn released her oft-delayed debut album, Somethin 'Bout Kreay. Despite no new hit singles, it seemed like the “Gucci, Gucci” rapper might put up surprisingly decent numbers. Kreay still had 500,000-plus Twitter followers and rabid fanbase on her side. Surely, the fact that the project boasts collaborations with Diplo, Kid Cudi, and 2 Chainz would help.
That was not the case when the official first-week sales figures came back. Somethin 'Bout Kreay moved a total of 3,900 units, landing her at the No. 104 spot on the Billboard 200. The numbers were among the worst first-week sales for a major label artist in history. However, she took it in stride on Twitter: "Aware & Don't care."
Kreay doesn’t stand alone. We decided to take a look at other artists who suffered a similar fate. Read on to find out which musicians had albums that didn’t do so well in their first week of release, either.
