Back in September 2012 Kreyshawn was all over the place with her hit YouTube single “Gucci, Gucci”, which led to her getting signed with Columbia Records and dropping her debut album – Somethin’ ‘Bout Kreay… Well the sad part is, her album was the worst debut of all time, only moving 3,900 copies in it’s first week. This is what happens when people get clouded by that YouTube fame… Yes it worked for Justin Bieber, but again what worked for him may not do the same for you.
I wonder what her contract looked like?
This week, a year and some change since the debut’s release, Kreayshawn shared her royalties from Somethin’ ‘Bout Kreay and they’re pretty abysmal. The Oakland rapper only made $.01 — yes, one cent — off the LP. The time frame it took for the penny royalty to accumulate is unknown. It could be for only the last week, the entire year 2013 or since the LP’s release in 2012. (We’re hoping it’s the first.)
