God Over Money’s Bizzle just released his album Crowns and Crosses on October 21, and the rapper had some words to share to his fanbase concerning streaming, buying, and stealing his music.
Bizzle sent out a newsletter to his fanbase to address what it actually means to stream his record, versus, purchasing or downloading a copy.
He explained that it takes 1,500 streams to equal one album sale. If 100,000 people download his 18-song-project, that will equal to 1,800,000 streams but only 1,200 album sales. The numbers are widely disheartening for an artist.
