Young Thug May Have Been Forced To Change Album Title By CoverGirl Makeup
The project, which dropped last Friday, still hasn’t appeared on HITS Daily Double’s top 50 albums of the week.
Which either means that almost nobody is streaming or buying it, or it’s not registering on the charts for some reason.
We guess we’ll know tomorrow when the official numbers come out.
As for why the album’s title went from being Easy Breezy Beautiful Thugger Girls to just Beautiful Thugger Girls we may have an answer.
The title was a riff on CoverGirl makeup’s “Easy, breezy, beautiful, CoverGirl” slogan.
But Thugger never contacted the cosmetic company directly. If he had, they would have told him they opposed him using their words.
CoverGirl was not contacted by Young Thug or any parties regarding his original album title,” CoverGirl told Complex. “The album is not aligned with our values at CoverGirl . Violence and abuse are unacceptable behaviors. We do not support the use or association of our iconic slogan, ‘Easy, Breezy, Beautiful, CoverGirl ‘ with Young Thug’s video, album or promotional materials.”
By violence and abuse, CoverGirl is almost certainly referring to a trailer for the album which showed a young woman getting jumped and beaten by a group of other women dressed in black and wearing masks.
Check it out below. And buy Thugger’s album. He really, really needs you to.
