Don’t Blame The-Dream For Mariah’s Sales

Sunday evening, The-Dream let off some steam via his Twitter account. The singer/songwriter fired back at Mariah Carey fans who accused him for her low album sales. Since it’s September release, Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel has sold 354,619 copies.

Heads Up: NB

    Damn recently I’m noticin how sensetive the dream is..he sound like a kid throwin a fit..I’m glad he said he ain’t the best singer..dude knows he has weak vocals..and after seein him as the opening “performer” at the heart of the city I can tell u he is whack (maybe he would have got a Grammy nod if he could sing)…secondly he is s decent songwriter..nothin earth shattertin…he seems to write better songs for other pple then for himself..he is no neyo..mariah’s issue is that she trying to make music for the 106 n park crowd..rather than the amazing music that had made her a legend..stop walkn around in tube tops Mimi..only sayin it cause I grew up on Mariah and love her but let’s keep progressin..don’t be like r Kelly and wait till u 40 to b all “r&b thugged out

    Just another example of how twitter is the worst thing to happen to artists . I’ve never seen so many stupid comments, or rants, or apologies afterwards . This constant and immediate access to the artists every thought (most are too immature to take some time to cool off before they tweet) just so happens to be accompanied by the lowest sales in recent music history . Coincidence ? I think not .

    Keep this in mind . For the most part , the artists that are still moving the most units, are artists who don’t tweet . There’s something to be said for a little mystery, and mystique . Airing your every thought and feeling may be making these artists TOO accessible . ESPECIALLY when it’s usually whining, berating fans, or saying something stupid enough to be apologized for the next day SMH .

    I have a pretty quick temper , so I don’t keep a gun in the house . That’s just smart. By the time I could get to something to do anything REALLY stupid , cooler heads will have prevailed . Maybe some of these artists need to use that same logic when it comes to twitter accounts and blogs .

    HAHAHAHAHA Mariah…you shouldn’t have dissed Em you stupid bitch!! That prob has nothing to do with your low numbers but fuck you anyway!!!

  • pepe le pew

    gossip is for bitches… let’s get back to the hip-hop.

  • Will

    how is a real fan going to concentrate on numbers anyway I mean you cant blame somebody becuz nobody but you wanna listen to that shit why should it matter that at least 1 million other people have the cd as long as you got yo copy whoever this is and all them Chris Brown Fans yall not fans yall just fuccing wit what you feel is hot and when shit you support aint hot you feel played Mariah Carey nor Chris Brown music is hot and aint nobody to blame for it shit and it might be good music but you cant get mad becuz nobody else wanted to buy it just worry about yo copy

    at the end of the day you want your favorite artist to suceed more than the other artist but that is the last thing you should worry about just worry about finding pleasure in the fucci music stop worrying about who bought and who didnt buy the fuccin CD as Long as you bought the motherfucca

    I blame 50 cent for this shit becuz before him nobody was caring about them fuccing numbers at all nobody really cared about 1st week sells like after he did that million in 3 days people have the tendency to base on whether they buy the disc on the 1st week numbers sad and to tell the truth its mostly blacc people clowning on the numbers and shit you think Hanna Montana and them disney chiccs cares about only selling 80 k her 1st week

    smartest thing ive read in a long time

    ive felt like reality tv and twitter n youtube gives u all this access of stars lives n ruined the mystique of being a star. hence: the shitty state of the industry . also i have this love/hate thing with the internet for killing the music business.

  • DARKAQUA

    OH YEAH…DREAM MUST BE BLEEDING AND PUT HIS TAMPON IN THE WRONG WAY…ALL THESE DAMN EXTRA RANTS!!

    Co sign pepe le pew

    I agree with Ty. I personally knew this was going to happen with Twitter and i think its a joke.
    The reason the record industry is going the way it is. cause theyre waisting money on bullshit artist. Most of all the music that is getting mainstream play is terrible terrible music.

  • Will

    cosign ty I have noticed that the artist without a twitter is moving all the units

    Em Jay Wayne

    I think twitter is bullshit you go around living life and letting people know what you doing

    twitter updates and Facebook status is nothin but a way for to snitch on yoself you could be like im at the movies and yo girl see it and she pop up and you there with another girl like the facebook status of my friends be so hilarious they be something of this nature

    “Im on that Kush and you can find me at 123 Seasame St telphone number 1-xxx-xxx-xxxx if you tryin to hit it ill be the dude with the red chuccs PS my Name is Devin” or somethin real stupid like “At home alone watchin tv on the 62 in wit a stacc of money in my poccet anybody trying to join im at 123 seasame st” LOL

    I be like wtf wtf puts that as a status updates knowing you got friends on there you really dont kno that can rob yo ass and you got old ass family members on there talking about smoking Kush with Moms as yo top follower and shit LOL

    i never got the smokin weed in public thing and letting everybody i know i smoke weed who would want to share they blunt if they can have it all to themselves LOL

  • Roy

    Em has a twitter. He rarely get son it though. Well, I doubt it’s even him that goes on it. Lol. Maybe he does every now and then.

  • Will

    @ Roy

    yea thats not him somebody that works at interscope or maybe its just somebody that made it up like Jay got 1 too like if you look on the side Rapradar has all the twitter accounts and I remember they had a ? mark by Jay-Z s

    if they do have them they more focused on making music instead of updating people about them making music there actually in the studio recording instead of taking pics of them in the studio LOL

  • GUEGZ

    This nigga comparing himself to Jordan….CMON MAN!! Watch ur mouth dream, ur spittin 2 much crack publicly!

  • willie mcfly22

    this dude beeen doin a lot of bitchin lately…jus stick to writing the musc homie and you’ll be fine…he and we kno he cant sing…

  • Roy

    @Will

    Yea I know it’s someone at interscope that runs his website, myspace, and facebook. I was unsure about the twitter. A lot of celebrities use it but Em is illiterate when it comes to recent technology. Em don’t give a shit about no computer. Just his “two turn tables and a microphone.” Ha ha.

  • John

    mariah carey doesn’t speak about her life on twitter, she uses it for promo. but u’re right if the artist are too accessible, people won’t mind about them.
    btw it was a bad idea to choose dream & tricky stewart to produce all the album entirely.
    And Def Jam has to be blamed too

  • QUEENZ

    gotta take the good with the bad Dream. If the record sold 20 Million you’d love to take credit for the win, if it flops you gotta take that on the chin too. Its all part of the game right?
