Why are Cardi’s pure sales so bad?

Recommended Posts


 (album debuted with 103k pure) 


and I can’t find the tweet but her biggest hit (Bodak Yellow) hasn’t even sold 1M pure. 


I get we’re in the streaming era but you’d think someone with such measurable popularity and broad appeal would sell better than this. Bebe Rexha and Julia Michaels literally outsold...

Cuz why would you ever buy an album for 13 when you can pay 10 and have every album? Stans don’t count  :gemma:

this is honestly it.. :nickiwat: i only purchase albums if i absolutely LOVE the artist or if they're big enough to ban streaming entirely (Lana, Taylor- Bey); why would i pay $17 for a record that'll have some filler when i can jus pay 9.99 and get literally...most..every album.. in existence..


esp w/ Urban/rap artists it's just easier to put stuff for streaming instantly- also helps w singles and overall play with playlists n whatnot :nickiwat:

Maybe because she didn't release a physical copy of IOP and nobody buys off iTunes anymore....?

It's really not hard to do the math.
