Kanye West Makes $1.3 Million in One Night


Kanye West announced that his new album ‘Donda 2’ will only be available on his very own platform, the Stem player!




Many fans were confused that their favorite artist’s next album will not be available on familiar streaming platforms like  Apple, Amazon, Spotify or Youtube and Ye says its all because ‘today’s artist only gets 12% of the money the industry makes.’




While the stem player move might’ve initially sounded a bit crazy, it obviously didn’t bother real Yeezy fans because the ‘Jesus Walks’ rapper has already sold 6,217 units making him about 1.3 Million dollars already!




Now this is a pretty innovative idea for artist. What if all artist start developing their own platforms for their music. It is quite mind boggling to hear artists like Kanye, Meek Mill, and NBA Youngboy express their frustrations about the industry and their labels not paying them what they feel they deserve.


Kanye’s Stem player cost about $200. Are you down to pay $200 just to hear DONDA 2? Even if there’s a chance you’re not a fan of the album?
