His devoted fans tossed down enormous cash despite the fact that the LP neglect to drop on Feb. 22.
Fans were stunned and amazed after they dropped a significant coin to listen to Kanye West's Donda 2 - exclusive to his platform, Stem Player - and it presently can't seem to be delivered.
As reported through his social media channels last week, Ye said that his sequel album wouldn't be featured on any of the major DSPs (Apple Music, Amazon, Spotify, YouTube). He said that today artists get only 12% of the cash the business makes. It's an ideal opportunity to liberate music from this oppressive system. He also said that it's an ideal opportunity to take control and assemble our own.
Fans immediately delved into their digital wallets to fork over around $230 total for a Stem Player, which is being charged as "the first Yeezy tech product," as indicated by West, and get an advanced copy of Donda 2. The move demonstrated extremely lucrative for West, who alarmed his supporters that he had gotten $2.2 million in a solitary day from the devices.
"To earn the $2.2 million we made on the first day on the stem player the album would have had to stream 500 million times," he shared on Instagram. "We did more revenue on stemplayer, without the album even being out than we would have done with the album being out on streaming."
While his fans stay confident that the album will in any case come out today or soon, West had a listening party planned for Donda 2 on Feb. 22 in Miami, Florida.
