“That was the extent of my deal, after 2 weeks it was on SoundCloud for free. I needed the money and they’re all good people over there,” he continued on Twitter. “I just wanna remain transparent, folks out there without a deal need to know they’re doing everything right just keep at it… I think (an) artist can gain a lot from the streaming wars as long as they remain in control of their own product.”
“I feel like if I didn’t clear it up people would keep trying to discredit all the work we did to make Coloring Book what it became” he added
In its first week on Apple Music, ” Coloring Book ” earned 38,000 equivalent album units from a total of 57.3 million streams. The album debuted at No. 8 on Billboard’s 200 chart – the first streaming-only album to ever chart there. Six months later, Apple Music passed 20 million paid subscribers a year and a half after launching.
