A Boogie wit da Hoodie‘s on a victory lap — celebrating his #1 album by buying houses and trucks for his family and pounds of jewelry for himself — and he says any artist who’s relying on selling albums anymore is just plain stupid.
The rapper’s riding high right now atop the Billboard charts — despite selling just 823 physical records — and when we got him leaving Rockefeller Center in NYC Wednesday night … he makes it pretty clear the low sales are now totally irrelevant.
A Boogie tells us streaming’s the new king of the music biz, and with his new album, “Hoodie SZN,” getting 83 MILLION streams last week … he’s got the crown.
There’s more, though … the hip-hop artist — whose real name is Artist, btw — says he’s got new music coming out with Tekashi 6ix9ine soon, along with a music vid for his track “Swervin'” featuring 69.
That’s sure to bring in a lot more streams … and a lot more bling.
“F**k sales,” indeed.
