Coi Leray continues to have a torrid time in the music industry. According to Chart data, the “Self Love” singer’s sophomore album “Coi” sold a disappointing 10k equivalent album units in its first week.
The album also failed to gain a slot in the top 100, debuting at number 102 on the Billboard 200.
Her 2022 debut album, Trendsetter featuring songs like “No More Parties,” “Big Purr,” and “Blick Blick” debuted at No. 89 on the Billboard 200, with 11,500 album-equivalent units sold in its first week.
Despite lower-than-anticipated album sales, the New Jersey native can still take pride in her numbers, especially when compared to artists like Saweetie and Soulja Boy, whose albums sold only 2000 and 500 copies respectively. It’s worth noting that both Saweetie and Soulja Boy enjoy a higher level of popularity compared to Coi.
In reaction, social media users wrote:
“The music was actually good and innovative very different from the other rap girls. I just don’t think she is a captivating person. She’s had multiple hits and has yet to build a fan base but I’m rooting for her,” commented one person.
Another added: “This album deserved so much more it was so good.”
Coi Leray responded to the mixed commentary surrounding her latest album’s performance with a message of gratitude to her fans. She was euphoric that she had 3 hits on the Hot 100, and said that she was “super proud” of herself.
“Grateful to have an album on the top 200 for my first week of my album release, again,” wrote Leray. “This time with 3 hits on the Hot 100 … woah 🤯. I’m super proud of myself. Bigger and better year every time. Keep streaming #COI … It’s an AMAZING project!”
Leray’s reaction to her album’s first week sales drew support from fans and industry friends including Boosie Badazz and Trinidad James.
