Bizzle released his most recent album on October 21, 2016. The album charted well on on digital stores, but about the streaming , buying and stealing. Bizzle has the following to say.
A lot of you have asked whether you should stream “Crowns & Crosses” or buy it, and what’s the difference? So I’ll try to explain here:
STREAMING vs. BUYING
1,500 Streams = 1 Album Sale
If 100,000 people stream the full 18 song album, that’s 1,800,000 Streams.
But when you divide that by the 1,500 streams it takes to equal an album sale, you get 1,200 albums.
So on paper 100,000 supporters ends up looking like 1200 albums sold.
So If you can, please buy it….then listen to the stream, OR simply bless someone else with it, and just listen to the stream yourself.
Either way, thank you for supporting Truth Music!!!=)
As for the STEALING…..
I decided to add this after seeing a site that was bootlegging my music. I saw comments from some who would call themselves fans, saying “thanks for the leak”, etc. as they proceeded to download it for free.
I can’t front, because of how much I put into my music; sharing my own pain, struggles, tears with you guys….it messed with me a bit. I thought about how many people will go to a restaurant and spend $10 for food it took 10 minutes to prepare, but then steal an album that it took a whole year to create; as if it’s not worth that same $10. Now as always, I expect the world to do what the world does.
But if you are a Christian, I expect you to support the movement and our efforts to bring change through music. And I’m not saying this just for me, I’m speaking for EVERY CHRISTIAN ARTIST who invests time, money, & resources into what they do; please support the artists you would like to see stick around.
GOD bless you all!!!
