Kanye West’s New Singles Record Underwhelming U.S. Digital Sales Figures

Kanye West's New Singles Record Underwhelming U.S. Digital Sales Figures

Kanye West’s re-entry into the cultural zeitgeist hasn’t been without incident, be it endorsing far-right Candace Owens or taking pictures in Donald Trump’s MAGA hat. But, in-between that, he also released two singles in “Lift Yourself” and “Ye vs. the People,” and now the first week sales figures are in.

“Lift Yourself,” a song widely considering a troll aimed at Hot 97 DJ Ebro Darden had 4,000 US digital sales while “Ye vs. the People” had 12,000. It was only recently that Kanye showcased the making of “Ye vs. the People,” which showed T.I. and Kanye talking and eventually making the song in what appears to be a very short space of time. Kanye will likely release an official comeback single in the coming weeks.

In related news, Daz Dillinger recently made a diss track about West.
