    buying digital music in 2018 is dumb af, imo

    If I like an artist enough to support them, I'll always buy a shirt or merch of some kind...just needs to be tangible

    I dunno how this surprises anyone. Counting first week "sales" is antiquated. The seven song album had 100 million streams in three days.

    There were no singles to count for first week streams (which is also ridiculous). Artists can go platinum before they even release their album thanks to streaming rules for singles.

    I'd have to stream the entirety of Ye 214 times to count for one "sale".

    I'd like to think they could find a fair way to make it "equivalent" to sales but I feel like that's not really possible. Cuz you could buy and album and listen to it zero times or buy an album and listen to it thousands of times. Idk how you could account for that with streaming.

    That's the issue for someone like Kanye imo. People weren't really feeling the album so they didn't listen to it much. If their only option was to buy it outright they probably would based on his name and pedigree.
