Meek Mill and Rick Ross‘s joint album Too Good to Be True is projected to sell between 30-35K copies in its first week, according to HitsDailyDouble. This is significantly lower than Meek Mill’s last album, Expensive Pain, which sold 95K copies in its first week, while Rick Ross’s “Richer Than I’ve Been” recorded a 30K debut in 2021.
The pairs new album, which arrived Friday (November 10) featured appearances from Fabolous, DJ Khaled, Vory, Teyana Taylor, Jeremih, The-Dream, French Montana and more.
In an effort to stir up excitement for the album, Rick Ross and Meek Mill launched a promotional campaign incentivizing fans to save the tracklist in exchange for the opportunity to win a $50,000 cash prize. Turns out a cash prize motivation still wasn’t enough for fans to want to stream the LP.
Timbaland has hyped the album, calling it a “classic” in a radio interview last month.
“Like I’ma tell you right now, the Meek and [Rick] Ross album,” he said. “That’s what we been missing. Ross giving you that Big Meech Ross. And that’s all we want, we don’t want Ross to sound like Uzi Vert. We don’t hear him on those tracks. We want to hear Ross today. We want to hear that.
“When I hear their album and it’s a masterpiece, just be good at what you good at. Be great at what you great at. Don’t change for nobody. That album says a lot to me because Meek is being Meek whether you like it or not.
“It’s not dated, it sounds current, it sounds fresh and it sounds like a classic,” Timbo testified. “And you could tell the space they’re in. I don’t even have to talk to them or ask what space they’re in, you could hear it through the music.”
Do you believe “Too Good To Be True” has the makings of a classic?
