Pop rapper Kreayshawn’s debut album was pushed back almost a year and a half after her YouTube breakthrough “Gucci Gucci” became a sensation. The long delay may have hurt the Oakland native’s commercial prospects, as Somethin’ ‘Bout Kreay reportedly sold than 4,000 copies in its first week.
Nonetheless, Kreay seemed to play off any notion of poor sales.
“If your lookin for physical copies of #SBK they are only @ Hot Topic and most have been sold out since the 2nd day it dropped so call ahead,” she tweeted. “Or just steal your dad’s credit card and buy off iTunes here.”
“Gucci Gucci” was released as a single in June of 2011. Kreayshawn’s debut album didn’t surface until September of 2012.
