‘Pilot Talk III’ To Take Your Curren$y

Earlier this month Curren$y dropped Pilot Talk III which was not released on iTunes and is selling for $100. Pilot Talk III comes in a purchased bundle of a jet USB preloaded with the entire album, exclusive photos and videos as well as exclusive apparel and Pilot Talk look-book.

The idea of selling an album for a high price is becoming a trend to follow after. Fellow artist, Nipsey Hussle, sold his album Mailbox Money for $1,000 a piece and sold 60 albums by doing so.

Paying for music is important in the success of the music industry, but with high priced albums from rappers whose listeners don’t always have the “Curren$y” to pay for them, it sets some fans up for a let down.

Spitta 2

Not only does the model put the listeners at a bit of a loss, Spitta could have also missed the take off in a big way by not selling albums in stores or on iTunes. He may lose out on the money that would have been spent from a majority of people who would be able to afford it at a lower price. After waiting for so long, the only saving grace is that the album can be streamed online for free for those who don’t mind not having the extras.

I’m not the biggest fan of this business model, but it has a positive aspect too, and that’s the amount of fan loyalty it exposes. Bundles like the one Curren$y has put together give the real fans more of a personal experience, one that others might not necessarily get from streaming the album online for free. The Pilot Talk III bundle gives you a deeper look into the making of the music and sets the casual fans apart from the devoted fans—the ones who are willing to pay the price for the awaited album and those who aren’t.
