Kanye West’s new album, ‘The Life of Pablo’, formerly known as waves, swish and so help me God was released last week exclusively through Tidal, which he pleaded for fans to subscribe to. However, not all the fans are willing to subscribe to Tidal, because the alum has over 500,000 illegal downloads!
According to the BBC, Kanye’s latest album has already been illegally downloaded more than half a million times, estimates Torrent Freak. Ernesto from Torrent Freak told the BBC, the level of piracy of The Life of Pablo is unusual.
“Generally we don’t track music releases closely, so I’m not calling any records,” he said.
“However, I haven’t seen numbers this high before for a music release – not with Adele either.”
What does this mean for Kanye?
