According to SoundScan, the Sacramento Kings’ Ron Artest sold one–that’s right, one*–copy of his album, My World, in its first week on the shelves. The XXL columnist who pointed out this statistic is calling for a SoundScan recount, but we’d like to launch a search for this person. So, consider this a call for the biggest Artest fan in America to step forward. We have a lot of questions, and many of them start with the word “why.”
*UPDATE: SoundScan glitched, and Artest actually sold 343 albums–which may sound better on first blush, until you remember that he moved about 5% of Kevin Federline’s first-week total. Now, we’re wondering if there’s anyone out there who bought both those albums.
