Last week, Chance The Rapper, Donnie Trumpet, & The Social Experiment released their long awaited album SURF with no notice as the first free album released via iTunes. Chance revealed that the album was downloaded 618,000 times, and the total tracks downloaded were 10,198,708. That’s pretty impressive, and considering that this wasn’t even a Chance The Rapper solo album, it’d be interesting to see what Chance will move once that drops. Although it doesn’t seem like Chance or his crew will ever sell music, it’d be even more interesting to see how these numbers would translate to actual sales.
Anyhow, congrats to the the SOX crew for this fantastic roll-out.
