Dr Dre’s Public Apology Killed Compton Sales

Dr. Dre
Andre Romelle Young, known by his stage name Dr. Dre, is an American record producer, rapper and entrepreneur. He is the founder and current CEO of Aftermath Entertainment and Beats Electronics which means he understands business, knowing what plugs to pull off and on to make sure business works better. He made a lot of money with Beats headphone when it was sold to Apple. His recent album ‘Compton’ had high sales as expected (at least for a first album in 15 years). He apologised to all women he had treated badly in the past and expected sales to skyrocket! Wow! It went the opposite direction!

According to Hits Daily Double ‘Compton’ only sold 42,732 copies this week down from 286,000 copies in its first week. Compton is Dre’s first album in 15 years.
