Boosie Badazz recently took to Twitter to voice his concerns regarding Coi Leray’s underwhelming album sales. According to reports, her latest project, Coi LP, only managed to sell around 10,000 units in its first week.
Known for his outspoken nature, the Baton Rouge native defended Coi Leray, who proudly claims the title of Trendsetter. Boosie called out what he believes to be the hidden forces in the music industry, suggesting that they manipulate outcomes.
Boosie emphasized Coi Leray’s ability to create hits, citing her successful Billboard Hot 100 singles like “Players,” “Self Love,” and “Baby Don’t Hurt Me.” He argued that her album should have easily reached sales of at least 100,000 units, expressing his suspicion of foul play, particularly due to Coi Leray being the daughter of Benzino, the controversial former owner of The Source magazine.
“@coileray_SHOULD HAVE SOLD AT LEAST 100k the first week. ‘NOBODY RECENT GOT MORE HITS THAN HER’ either this sh** rigged r CELEBRITY KIDS JUST GET HATED ON WHEN ITS TIME TO SWIPE,” Boosie tweeted.
Despite Boosie Badazz’s passionate outrage, Coi Leray responded differently, considering her No. 102 debut on the Billboard 200 as another triumph in her rising career. Taking to Twitter, she expressed gratitude for having an album on the top 200 in its first week and celebrated her three hits on the hot 100 chart. Coi Leray remains proud of her accomplishments and encourages her fans to continue streaming her remarkable album, Coi.
Released on June 23, Coi features 16 tracks, including the viral single “Players,” the Technotronic-sampled “Make My Day” featuring David Guetta, “Spend It” with Saucy Santana, and “No Angels” featuring Lola Brooke.
