Of course, the artists decided to take this step not from one of his love for Apple and get something in return. Recently it became clear that they receive.

the Rap artist Chance the Rapper recently spoke on Twitter about his new album, Coloring Book, which was released in may last year. In the first week it was available only in Apple Music, but this did not prevent him to get to the top ten of Billboard magazine based on the number of auditions.

Some fans criticized the decision of the rapper on how to provide the subscribers of the music service Apple exclusive opportunity to listen to the album. In one of his tweets the musician admitted that Apple paid him $ 500,000.

Is this amount the same for all artists, who also participated in such actions, we hardly know if anyone from the team Chance the Rapper doesn't say anything on Twitter. Also still unclear what exactly the share of revenue from streaming Apple Music goes directly to the musician.
