Kanye West’s The Life Of Pablo Album Didn’t Make The Billboard Charts AT ALL!

no title

The greatest artist of all time sure isn’t doing so great…

While we assumed that Kanye West‘s recent The Life of Pablo was going to go down as one of 2016’s most anticipated album releases, it seems as though being fickle with the title really cost him.

In addition to being $53 million in debt, Billboard reported on Tuesday that Yeezus’ seventh studio album failed to make the charts entirely!

Apparently, TIDAL refused to share Kanye’s sales figures with the music ranker at all! Not a good sign…

The chart’s Vice President Silvio Pietroluongo issued a statement, saying:

“Streams from TIDAL for this title will not contribute to Billboard’s chart rankings at this time. Billboard has been informed that TIDAL is not currently reporting streams for tracks on Kanye’s album to Nielsen Music.”

With that said, we have heard reports that Pablo has been illegally downloaded at least 500,000 times since it dropped on February 14, so it’s not like people aren’t listening to it… this will just be Kanye’s least successful album commercially.

What’s strange about all this news is that TIDAL shared the numbers for Rihanna‘s ANTI literally this past week, so clearly they’re not always secretive with all of their artists’ material.

Maybe releasing your music exclusively on an unpopular streaming service isn’t the best marketing technique… who would have thought?!

Have U purchased/streamed/pirated TLOP yet??
