CelebNMusic247.com reports that DJ Khaled is now pointing fingers at everyone for his album NOT making no 1.
A source said when projections showed his new record looking likely to come in second DJ Khaled was IRATE!
The source says:
He stormed into Epic with an entourage. He [Khaled] was angry and yelling. He threw a temper tantrum.
It is being said that DJ Khaled was blaming the also-ran album placing on his label chiefs’ not understanding streaming services and bundle deals.
A second source said that Khaled did not hold back his displeasure.
No. 2 won’t do for Khaled. He was not happy when the album didn’t debut at No. 1 .?.?. Not happy at all.
Too late, it has to do because the debut week is OVER!
An industry insider chimed in saying:
He was furious. There was some nasty stuff said. Publicly, he’s all about ‘positivity,’ but there is a mean side to him that people don’t see .?.?. He overhyped the record and blew it up as his biggest album ever.
Turns out it wasn’t.
The biggest album debut that put Khaled’s “Father of Asahd” in second place was Tyler, the Creator’s fifth studio album, “Igor.”
Yup, “Igor” Killed Khaled and it’s just pissing him off.
Even with Khaled’s “Saturday Night Live” Finale appearance, the album didn’t cut it, but that might have to do with the terrible sound of the songs live. The only performance that was on point was SZA.
The song is using Outkast son “Mrs. Jackson” and the main beat of the song for his hit “Just Us” featuring SZA. Check it:
The source also said:
Khaled was upset that his label wasn’t fighting for him and fighting for those numbers to count, which could have propelled him to No. 1. They don’t get it.
Meanwhile, Sony, which owns Epic and also reps Tyler, “is happy regardless. Their artists were No. 1 and No. 2.”
A source close to Khaled insisted he’s staying sanguine.
His album is almost gold and it’s not even a month old.
Khaled is sticking to his positive mantra on social, writing:
Still celebrating the album that was the most streamed and digital sales .?.?. to the world.
He continues to post lyrics to promote the album:
