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