Second week show that boy numbers ain’t high
I hate to break it to you, numbers always lie
At the time Joe Budden put out his first album he a lot of momentum and Def Jam was betting on big sales because of the success of Pump It Up but after less than optimal sales come the 2nd week Def Jam backed off supporting Joe.
Numbers lie because they are not a real representation of what is actually being listened to. Album sales numbers are affected more by the way and amount of money the record label spends promoting the album and not quality of the music.
