Lil Uzi Vert secretly surprised his fans with the release of his second studio album named Eternal Atake March 6, 2020 through record companies Atlantic Records and Generation Now. Due to the recent Covid-19 pandemic the reality of concerts have come to a halt, but that does not mean for musicians their experiencing a pay cut. With the countries state right now, the CDC has strongly recommended for the public to practice social distancing along with several other things( for more information check the link below) but with that a lot more people have a lot more time on their hands and the amount of streaming has rocketed.

According to Nielsen, The first half of the two- part album, sat at No.1 equaling up to 288,000 in album sales and about 400 million streams. The biggest stream count since legendary rapper Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter V” long awaited album. Besides Lil Uzi Vert artists such as Jhené Aiko, Bad Bunny, and Lil Baby are racking up some streams. All in All it seems for now that business for artists are not a bust. Lastly, I would like you all to remember in the midst of confusion there always is a solution. Stay safe and healthy Wolverines!
