Kreayshawn created quite the buzz for herself with her internet hit “Gucci Gucci.” She was living on the high momentarily, got a record deal and released her debut album but her endeavors weren’t very lucrative…at all.
The Oakland rapper recently shared her royalties check and guess how much she racked up? A whooping one cent.
Now, that’s Kreay.
According to Vibe magazine, Somethin’ ‘Bout Kreay was released in September 2012 and only moved 3,900 copies.
The album holds the title for one of the worst first week sales ever considering it was released by major label Columbia. The album debuted at No. 112 on the Billboard 200 in its first week of release.
This probably came as a shock to both Kreayshawn and her label. The video for “Gucci Gucci” received over 30 million hits upon its release.
Kreayshawn recently tweeted out a photo of her royalties check totaling one cent. She didn’t not state how long it took to accumulate the underwhelming amount. Vibe says that It could be for only the last week, the entire year 2013 or since the LP’s release in 2012.
Since releasing Somethin’ ‘Bout Kreay she has been pretty ghost from the music scene with no follow-up album or mixtape to speak of.
She dropped a track last February called “Baby Cakes” and has been M.I.A. ever since.
Maybe she’s decided to give up on her raps and focus on raising her son. Best of luck to her in whatever she’s doing.
