Lil Uzi Vert secretly surprised his fans with the release of his second studio album named “Eternal Atake” on 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 musicians are experiencing a pay cut. In spite of all this mayhem, 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.” 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.
