Travis Scott’s concert at Astroworld this year will remain a blemish on music forever. 9 people have lost their lives as a result of poor crowd control and judgement. That controversy created cash for Travis Scott.
Scott’s album was at the #50 spot on Billboard’s Hot 200 last week. This week it moved up 6 slots. This boost of interest came amid over 100 lawsuits being filed against Scott and Live Nation, the company responsible for the Astroworld event.
The Astroworld album is slated to break into the top 40 of Billboard 200 chart as Hits Daily Double reports hat the album will go to #38, an increase of 12 slots. He sold around 15,000 albums, 617 of those are “pure album sales.”
It is very possible that this sudden surge of interest for Scott created this boost in sales. He is still reportedly devestated over the tragedy and pulled out of Day N in Vegas. He also reportedly hasn’t left his home since returning after the tragedy.
We will continue monitoring this ongoing story here at Thirsty. There will likely be even more to unpack as we continue.
