You can be a legendary POP-icon or an aspiring hip hop artist, but the way things are right now, your new album will get leaked online before the official release date. All the previous albums released in 2015 and 2014 got leaked days or weeks before they officially hit the shelves. This has been a common occurrence for all music albums from Taylor Swift’s ‘1989’ to Ed Sheeran’s ‘X’ to the latest Madonna’s ‘Rebel Heart’.
Two albums got leaked just days apart.
Kid Ink & Madonna Albums Leak Before Release Date
Kid Ink released his second studio album on February 03, 2015 and the full albums leaked online two days before the above date. We don’t know how worse this will impact the album sales, but the reviews for the ‘Full Speed’ album on leaked sources are very positive. So we can optimistically think that these reviews will up the already down album sales somewhat.
The latest music albums leak happened just hours ago. The highly anticipated ‘Rebel Heart’ album by Madonna leaked online few hours ago and is making free rounds on the Internet as I type this. The Super Deluxe edition of ‘Rebel Heart’ which contains a staggering 25 tracks, is available for download free of charge on the Internet. This is saddening to see. ‘Rebel Heart’ album release date is set to March 10, 2015, so this album leak specifically is very early.
Towards the latter part of 2014, hints of ‘Rebel Heart’ album leak online surfaced and Madonna was furious about it. We can imagine her frustration, after making 25 brand new tracks and letting it be stolen. She denied the tracklist and previews of clips leaked. Looks like she pi**ed off the wrong crowd, now the album has leaked a month early to it’s release date.
We, at JustRandomThings, strongly believe that artists should be properly compensated towards their effort in bringing new music to this world. So DON’T rush in and download the leaks, even if you do, don’t let that stop you from buying an album copy once it releases officially. Help the artists do what they have been doing for so long, and brought joy to our lives in the process.
