DJ KHALED IS NOT HAPPY WITH BILLBOARD AFTER HIS LATEST ALBUM DOESN’T HIT #1…READ MORE
DJ Khaled is allegedly planning to sue Billboard Chart because of the results, claiming that he was cheated out of the No. 1 spot.
Khaled’s lawyers have sent a letter to Silvio Pietroluongo, SVP of charts and data development at Billboard. The sales were discounted because Khaled teamed his sales with an energy drink as part of a “bundle deal” which normally offers album downloads to go with a product. Billboard allegedly agreed to count the bundle deals in the beginning but backtracked later on.
A source told the outlet, “When Khaled’s team tried to appeal, Billboard refused to budge.” His team saw the situation as more unfair after the figures from Tyler, the Creator’s bundle deal counted in his sales total.
