Never in a week have we had two albums released that have been so ridiculed. Sure Shaq's had an album but he did not have the caliber of K-Fed releasing on the same week.
One artist from the sports world. One from the celebrity world. One you knew had a CD coming out. The other maybe not so. Both cannot rap. One had to sell more albums however.
Ron Artest sold a pathetic 343 albums in his first week according to Soundscan. That's just embarassing. I tried to find the lowest selling album in the first week of all time. Not a popular Google search but I did find one person that Ron Arest outsold recently. A chick from American Idol. She was the tall brunette who played basketball. She did not make the final 12 last season. I think only people in prison bought her CD.
Some artist that out sold Artest (#34,228) on Amazon are David Hasselhoff, William Shatner, Paris Hilton, Vanilla Ice, MC Hammer and William Hung's Christmas album (#8,734).
Kevin Federline, a celebrity by osmosis, had a better week than Artest but a huge pile of dung compared to legitimate artists. 6,500 sorry souls bought his album. His ex's CD "Oops I Did It Again" sold 6,500 in the first hour. In terms of working on his credibility as a rapper, it's buried about six feet under ground. He even had to give away free tickets for his concerts. They're now suing for attempted assault and battery. It's safe to call K-Fed the worst selling white rapper of all time. Vanilla Ice...word to your mother.
To make his week even worse, his golden ticket, Britney Spears, filed for divorce. Reportedly she did it by text message.
