Can you update SZA? since she just released an album that is smashing right now
this article is literally less than two weeks old
Yeah? what about it? they still didn’t update her sales!
Maybe it’s wright to do SZA now , but you may think about Sia , Camilla Cabello and Nicky Minaj . Many people wright about it there .
About they level , I think :
Sia – 25-30 Mln EAS .
Nicky Minaj – 40-45 Mln EAS .
Camilla Cabello – 15-20 Mln EAS .
The difference is that this is a light article and I doubt that it took them long. Nicki Minaj for reference would take them weeks and the digital sales would probably be sort of inaccurate since hers are hard to estimate.
