Meek Mill surprised his fans with a new EP on February 29. The five-track project, titled Heathenism, features guest appearances from Future and Fivio Foreign, and production from OthelloBeats, Gabe Lucas, and more. The EP was released via Meek’s own label, Dream Chasers Records, with distribution from Jay-Z’s Roc Nation.

However, despite the star power and the hype, Heathenism failed to make a significant impact on the charts. According to DJ Akademiks, the EP only sold 6,000 album-equivalent units in its first week, making it one of Meek’s lowest-selling projects to date.

For comparison, Meek’s previous solo album, Expensive Pain, which came out in 2021, sold 83,000 units in its first week, debuting at number three on the Billboard 200 chart.

So, what went wrong for Meek? Some critics have pointed out the lack of promotion and marketing for the EP, which was announced only a day before its release. Others have suggested that Meek’s recent controversies, such as his alleged affair with Diddy have overshadowed his music and damaged his reputation. 

However, Meek does not seem to be bothered by the low sales or the negative feedback. On his official X account, he tweeted that he “doesn’t really care for numbers,” adding “I love impact.”
