Drake’s Dad Dennis Graham Is Pissed No One Bought His Single
Earlier this month, Drake's dad, Dennis Graham released his first official single, an R&B jam called "Kinda Crazy" through Apple Music. The song was first previewed back in August, but it would appear that the tune didn't have the traction Graham was hoping for, as he turned to Instagram to air out some of his followers.
"I will be deleting all my so called friends on instagram who hasn't purchased my 1.29 Kinda Crazy single how cheap can friends be have a nice life!!!!!!!" he wrote beneath a photo of the song's cover art. "As of midnight tonight you will be a faded memory, you know who you are, and you can also see that all you a**holes that are making what you think are funny comments has been blocked." As of Thursday morning, Graham has 221,000 Instagram followers.
Single sales can be a tricky metric, and Graham certainly isn't the first to get bent out of shape over low figures. In May, TDE CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith took to Twitter to voice his frustrations with the lack of support ScHoolboy Q's "THat Part" was receiving, despite a high profile feature by Kanye West. “Who bought Q single?… we have over 11m followers and his single sold 26k the 1st week. y’all beg 4 it..explain that support 2 me…lmao," he wrote. "Y’all have 2 really support these records y’all keep asking for.”
While Q is an established artist and Graham is trying to break into the the industry, both examples nonetheless highlight the fact that consumers aren't buying singles like they used to.
