Beyonce’s New Album Has Already Been Pirated More Than 240,000 Times
According to a new report, Beyonce's latest album 'Beyonce' has already been pirated more than 240,000 times!MusicMetric says record labels can regularly check the BitTorrent data - a site known for being able to access pirated music and software - "to have an incredibly detailed insight into where their artists are popular - right down to the town." The report also says that had these copies been purchased versus pirated, the album would have made another $3.8 million.
Still, it may not hurt Beyonce. She has already sold almost 1 million copies in the first two weeks since she released the top secret album in the middle of the night.
