Travis Scott's Aiming For The No. 1 Spot, First-Week Sales Projections Revealed
Texas rapper Travis Scott is going for that number one spot. The hip-hop newcomer's new Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight's first-week sales projections have surfaced.
Based on early estimates, the project is expected to sell at least 60,000 copies.
Apple Music exclusively premiered the new album heading into the weekend.
Recently, Spotify's global head of creator services Troy Carter talked about his disinterest in entertaining streaming exclusives.
But on a recent afternoon at the company's New York office in Chelsea, Carter, 43, declares that "exclusives are bad for artists, bad for consumers and bad for the whole industry." Since most users will never subscribe to more than one streaming service, he believes that limiting access to music only incentivizes fans to seek it out on pirate sites or YouTube, where it generates less revenue. "I was brought onboard to strengthen the bridge between Spotify and the music community," he says. (Billboard)
