How You Can Listen To Kanye West’s Controversial New Albums Before Everyone Else For Free
Kanye has been in the news a lot recently, and many would argue for all the wrong reasons. Putting Kanye’s political views aside, the man has been quite busy since his last album, The Life of Pablo. According to Kanye’s Twitter, he is releasing not one, but two new albums this summer. The first new Kanye west album is 7 tracks long and is called Ye. Kanye’s new album has been rumored since at least the summer of 2017, and there has been a steady leak of artists collaborating on the album, from MIGOS, to Travis Scott, A$AP Rocky, and even Drake, and if social media is to be believed, we know that it’s going to be something special. Here is our list of everything Kanye is doing this summer, and how you can listen to it before everyone else!
1) Kanye West Album – Ye
Supposedly featuring the face of Kanye’s late mother’s plastic surgeon on the album cover, Ye drops on June 1st, 2018 exclusively on TIDAL for 30 days. TIDAL is Jay-Z’s online music service that Kanye also owns a stake in. TIDAL costs $9.99/month, and new subscribers get to try one month for free to see if they like the service. It’s the perfect opportunity to listen to Kanye’s new album and test out the service’s features. With over 3 million subscribers and a boatload of exclusive artists, TIDAL claims to pay artists the highest royalties, meaning they get rewarded more for your listens than they would on Spotify or Apple Music.
2) Kanye West & Kid Cudi Album – Kids See Ghosts
The second album that Kanye has been working on is a joint collaboration with Kid Cudi, and according to Kanye’s Twitter, is called Kids See Ghosts. Kids See Ghosts is also dropping on TIDAL on June 8th, and will be exclusively streamed via TIDAL for the next 30 days as well.
What do you think of these exclusive streams that TIDAL has? Good for the music industry? Unfair to the artists? Is it the death of traditional record labels? Let us know your thoughts below!
