Austin Mahone’s record label Republic Records are disappointed over sales of his new EP The Secret. Republic exec Avery Lipman said, ‘The kid can close down any mall in America, but we are struggling to sell a meaningful amount of records.
It sounds good, looks good; goes right in the weeds.’ The Secret sold 46,000 copies in its first week to debut at No. 5 on the Billboard 200, before dropping to No. 34 in its second week with just over 8,000 copies sold.
