Tyga’s The Gold Album is only 497,800 record sales short of becoming a certified gold album. The rapper and close friend of 17-year-old Kylie Jenner surprise dropped his fourth LP on Spotify last week, and tweeted out a link to the record’s page on iTunes the following day. It would appear that not many people clicked that link, as according to Complex, The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty sold just 2,200 copies in its first week. Better luck next time?
