It looks like this is going to be a year full of new music from Kanye West.
‘Entertainment Weekly‘ reports:
In a statement to EW, Billboard says it “has been informed that Tidal is not currently reporting streams for tracks on Kanye’s album to Nielsen Music. Therefore streams from Tidal for this title will not contribute to Billboard’s chart rankings at this time.”
An industry source also tells EW that Tidal reports numbers to Nielsen and Billboard unless “the artist does not give permission” and that “Kanye West didn’t give permission to release any of the numbers.”
A release date for his new set is yet to be announced.
