Produce producers in the Atlanta-area are on the ropes amid a slowdown in the production of hip hop albums.
The industry was up 0.1 percent in February, according to a survey by the Associated Press.
The median sales price for albums in February was $3.04, down 3.5 percent from the same month last year, according the AP.
In the past year, sales have been up slightly, but the gap has narrowed slightly to 2.3 percent from a year ago.
In a typical year, the industry makes $60 million a month, according a report by the Recording Industry Association of America.
The number of albums sold fell 8.5 million from a decade ago to 1.4 million albums sold.
In January, the Recording Academy named Drake the 2014 Recording Artist of the Year, while Taylor Swift earned her first Grammy Award for Best Pop Album.
Drake was a member of the Grammy Academy and has had a busy year for music.
His album Views earned five Grammy Awards, including two for best song, and he also won a Grammy for Best Rap Album.
But this year’s album sales have taken a hit as the industry struggles with record labels and digital distribution.
In February, Drake’s Views was the top selling album of the year.
On Monday, his album 3:44 was also the top seller in the country.
In 2015, Drake and Rihanna were named to the Recording Artists Association of Canada’s Country Music Hall of Fame.
This year, Drake was not among the honorees, but he still has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Champions in 2016.
He won a 2017 Grammy for his work on “The Life of Pablo.”
Drake’s album Views, which came out in January, was the second-best selling album in the U.S. and the second best-selling album in Canada in the month of February, the Associated Statesman-Reid reported.
The album also ranked No. 1 in the album chart for the month, and it was No. 2 in the singles chart for a month in both Canada and the U, according with Nielsen Music.
Drake has been nominated for five Grammy awards, including best rap album and best R&b/hip hop album.
In 2016, he was nominated for two.
In 2017, Drake won for Best R&op Album and Best Rap Song.
Drake is also a member on the Rock Hall of Famer’s Hall of Shame.
He has a new album out called Good Kid, mixtape on the rocks.
He is currently on tour, performing at concerts and performing with his son Drake Jr. on the first leg of his “We Are the World” tour.
