DJ Khaled planning monster lawsuit against Billboard Chart

DJ Khaled planning monster lawsuit against Billboard Chart”

In the end, the Times reports that Billboard decided that most of DJ Khaled's bundled album sales wouldn't count towards the charts, "suspecting that some of the marketing by Shop.com and its corporate parent, Market America, had crossed a line by encouraging unauthorized bulk sales".

Khaled maintains Billboard discounted downloads sold by the DJ and producer as part of a bundle deal with an energy drink.

Bundling has become a standard but controversial industry practice to boost sales.

Page Six is reporting that Khaled's legal team have issued a letter to Silvio Pietroluongo, Billboard's Senior Vice President of charts and data development, threatening to sue.

A DJ Khaled source said, "When Khaled's team tried to appeal, Billboard refused to budge". But despite earlier agreeing to include the numbers, Billboard later disqualified Khaled's entire sales from the promotion, saying there were "strange anomalies in the data". The source said the situation was all the more unjust because Tyler, the Creator's bundle deal figures were included in his total sales.

In the video, Khaled spoke about how many people were playing his album everywhere as opposed to "mysterious s**t" which is allegedly in reference to Tyler the Creator's "IGOR" album, which went number one over his album. According to the article, the sales race between Khaled and Tyler came down the validity of their album packages with other items-or bundles. Billboard claims its decision was based on chart rules.

News of an impending lawsuit comes soon after Page Six reported that Khaled threw a "furious" tantrum at his record label Epic, over the album's failure to reach the top spot.
