The scrambled release of Kanye West‘s new album, ‘The Life of Pablo’ took a late turn over the weekend as a planned release on West’s website failed to materialize, prompting the rapper to hold off for a week and granting the streaming service Tidal a period of exclusivity in the process.
West pleaded with his fans and Twitter followers to subscribe to Tidal in the meantime:

And while it’s unclear how many people are actually going to take the rush and subscribe, West’s plea appears to have given Tidal a boost: the app now ranks #1 on the overall iOS App Store charts for the first time. It’s also currently #30 on ‘Top Grossing.’
Man thank you so so so much everyone for signing up to Tidal. Tidal is now the number one app in the world!!! pic.twitter.com/O3r9DkX03R
