Year of Gratitude - Day 69 - Kendrick Lamar

Admittedly, I'm really late to the Kendrick Lamar party, but I'm grateful to have been late than to have never made it all! I was reading through the daily news bits from The National for Business Journalism and was happy to see this on Lamar's latest record:
Kendrick Lamar sets a record. Billboard reports Kendrick Lamar’s surprise album drop late Sunday led to a record first day for album streams. A total of 9.6 million people listened to at least one of the songs on To Pimp a Butterfly on Spotify on the album’s first day. That’s a lot of people. Billboard estimates the royalties from all those plays will add up to a little over $44,000.
It should also be noted that the Kendrick Lamar channel on Pandora is great.
