$ 500 000, or just over 4.4 million Swedish kronor. So much did the artist Chance The Rapper to release his album Coloring Book exclusively at the Apple Music for two weeks, before then released to other streaming services. It writes, among other Macrumors.
Except that Apple should have paid him that sum, he was also a prominent position in the app. It is not the first time Apple releases the album exclusively on its music service. Earlier, including Frank Ocean, Taylor Swift and Drake released music first in the Apple Music, before it then come to other services.
Rumor: Apple is considering streaming service – "something big is happening "
however, it is the first time we get an insight into what happens behind the scenes for exclusive service releases – and what it could cost Apple to" buy artists. " Drake should have received the full $ 19 million, but then he appeared also to Apple's radio station Beats 1 and became the full service public face of the launch in 2015.
Data coming from a bunch of tweets Chance The Rapper himself, who said he would be transparent in how he works. "If you come across an opportunity to work with good people, earn a hack and maintain its integrity, then I say, go ahead," he wrote on Twitter on Friday afternoon.
It is unclear what Apple likes to Chance The Rapper leaking details of the agreement.
