Megan Thee Stallion's album appears to not be doing well, and has people at her record label going crazy. MTO News spoke with a music industry insider who tells us that there is "panic" in Megan's camp after the early numbers from her album sales began circulating internally.
The insider explained to MTO News, "Meg may only move 60K units, that's a flop of epic proportions." If those numbers hold, Meg's album will be seen as the second biggest album flop of 2020, only behind Tekashi 6ix9ine.
There were extremely high hopes for Megan Thee Stallion, especially since her collaboration with Cardi B, entitled WAP, became such a huge hit.

The insider explained, "Meg had the song of the summer in 2019 [with Hot Girl Summer] and the song of Summer 2020 [with WAP]. They expected that she'd be next in line for the Queen of Hip Hop."
And Megan may be the next Queen of Hip Hop. But she may have to wait a while to take the crown, if her album sales truly end up being as poor as MTO News is hearing they are.
So what could be causing Megan to flop so badly? At least one person in her camp believes that her handling of the Tory Lanez shooting situation may have torpedoed her popularity - especially with men.
The insider told MTO News, "The Tory [Lanez] situation was bad, and Megan handled it badly. To a lot of people it looked like she was lying and throwing [Tory] under the bus for some feminist clout. She handled it all wrong."
