Chance the Rapper Addresses Critics Of $500K Apple Music Payday

But, then it went back onto Chance The Rapper's Soundcloud page, following, subsequently, in suit of all of his previous works.

The 23-year-old has refused to tie himself to a major record label, instead preferring to release his music for free.

Coloring Book, his third project, was released on Apple Music exclusively for two weeks-prompting some to question whether or not he had inked a deal with the company, therefore altering his independent status.

The negative comments apparently arose after it was revealed that his latest album, titled Coloring Book, debuted exclusively on Apple Music for two weeks before enjoying a wider release.

Online ticket seller Fandango said the film is the best advance-selling family movie in the Los Angeles company's 17-year history. Other live action remakes in development at Disney: " Dumbo ", "The Lion King", " Aladdin ", " Mulan " and "Pinocchio".

The hip-hop artist's signature on Apple's dotted line, and the resulting appearance on an Apple commercial leaves listeners and advocates of independent artists with a sour taste in their mouth.

He added: "I think artist [s] can gain a lot from the streaming wars as long as they remain in control of their own product. Folks out there without a deal need to know they're doing everything right just keep at it", he said before imparting advice. Prior to now, both artists and Apple have kept deal terms tightly under wraps. "I needed the money and they're all good people over there", he continued on Twitter.

Chance the Rapper says he shared the info because he wants to "remain transparent".

Labels and other streaming services have expressed displeasure with Apple's push for exclusive content, and one music group, UMG, has even banned its artists from agreeing to Apple Music exclusives. He was also rumored to have picked up a multi-million cheque from Apple to secure his (controversially) self-released effort, Blonde - as well as "video album" Endless - as windowed streaming exclusives.
