Earlier today Kendrick Lamar shared a few words with his twitter followers after many people were not able to pick up a physical copy of the album. To Pimp A Butterfly has been selling fast in stores but Lamar is promising all stores have restocked the album.
“@kendricklamar: Apologies 2 my folks scramblin 4 physical copies of TPAB. No more delays. Officially in stock everywhere today. All is well.”
This comes days after learning that the album is also doing well online. It’s broken the record for most streams in one day bringing in 9.6 million streams on Spotify. Which is great news for TDE since the album appears to have been accidentally released by Interscope Records about a week earlier than expected. The album was available on iTunes then got pulled down then was made available again. TDE CEO, Anthony Tiffith did also express his opinion on the matter via twitter “I WOULD LIKE 2 PERSONALLY THANK @InterscopeFOR FUCKING UP OUR RELEASE … SOMEBODY GOTS 2 PAY 4 THIS MISTAKE !!!!”
