“You’re not a superstar if you can’t sell an album, what the f*ck are we talking about right now?” he said. “What stops her from being a superstar if we’re taking out sales? She ain’t sold shi*. Got every brand deal in the world, but also has all the backing from mad different people. She’s got a lot going on. That’s the game today.”

Y’all are just making rules up.  You all just saying sh*t.  You still got to know how to sell a fucking album,” he said. “When Adele come out, you gotta move. When n*ggs come out, you gotta move. No, when a superstar comes out, your mortal, mere minion n*ggas have to move. Nobody does that for Lil Nas X, nobody does that for the seven Meg Thee Stallion releases that dropped over the past two years. What are we saying?”

Meg's one album Good News had a decent first week.  Moving about 100K and opening number 2.  Not superstar numbers.

Since then, as Joe points out, she hasn't had a lot of chart success.
