As revealed in a new interview with Complex, Chance the Rapper is contemplating selling his new album whenever he decides to start working on it. In a recent interview with Complex, Chance voiced his frustrations with the current stream and chart systems in place.
“I think I might actually sell this album. That’s, like, a big step in itself. I kind of hate the fact that I can’t chart, really. I can chart, but the way they have the streaming sh*t set up is weak as f*ck, It’s unfair. 1,500 streams is the equivalent to one [album sale], and that’s just unfair. Nobody listens to their songs [1,500] times when they buy it — f*ck outta here! So, it makes it hard. I can’t really compete with other people.”
Nonetheless we know that Chance’s next major release are nowhere near complete when he stated. “Also, this is all hypothetical. There is no album. I can feel fans squirming in their chair, like, ‘Oh sh*t, he’s changing!’ This is an idea,” Chance assures.
