Tyga Talks Album Recall, Brings Out Honey Cocaine on ’106 & Park’

Tyga

The ladies went wild when the man with the No. 4 album in the country, Tyga, paid a visit to “106 & Park” on Wednesday. The Young Money rapper explained why his album Careless World was unavailable at some retailers during its first week of release. An uncleared sample of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech forced it to be pulled from stores and re-shipped. It ended up selling 61,000 copies in its first week based mostly on digital sales.

Tyga revealed that he had the option of delaying the album by two weeks or keeping the February 21 release date. “I had over 200,000 CDs in stores—Best Buy, Walmart, Target—and then I got a call two days before the album was about to drop and they were like, ‘Yo, either we got to push your date back another two weeks or you ain’t gonna have no albums the first week,” he told Terrence and Rocsi.

Not wanting to let his fans down, he decided to release the album to iTunes regardless of the first-week figures.

The Cali native, who is currently playing shows across the country on his “Careless World” tour, also introduced his female rap signee Honey Cocaine, who can be heard on Teyana Taylor’s song “Bad Boy.”

    I dont blame him dropping the week as planned anyways. Amazon, Best Buy and Target didn’t have his album on the site so this was a real situation.

    If he did push it back 2 weeks, people would have ran for the leaks and sales would have been worse.

    I like Tyga. I hope that you do well! but MLK Estate was right for not letting you put his speech on your song…the “I have A Dream” speech is all ready well known and it doesnt need to be on a compilation with Rack City bittch

    I’m so proud of Tyga! He still had a top 5 debut despite not having any physical albums in stores. I love to see him in interviews because he’s just so humble and grateful for everything.

    It would have done way better if it would have been in stores TRUST ME.
    If these were JUST the digital sales like he said, and there were NO physical CD´s sold …..THEN THE SALES WOULD HAVE BEEN HIGHER!
