The numbers are not favorable for Kanye West's 7-track album Ye. The album is expected to stream only 175,000 times by Thursday. Of those streams, only 70,000 are expected to be paid downloads.

Kanye angered his mostly liberal fanbase when he expressed his support for President Donald Trump. The backlash continues as evidenced by the low numbers for his album, despite all seven tracks landing in the top 7 on Apple Music.

Just two of the tracks are in the top 50 on iTunes. But Ye is number 1.

Kanye was ecstatic over the fan support on social media when he dropped Ye on Friday. He thanked his followers for embracing his follow-up to 2016's The Life of Pablo.

On his Twitter page, Kanye thanked "everybody that didn't turn they back" on him. He also created a website that allows his followers to create their own versions of the Ye album cover -- a picturesque view of the Teton Range which he snapped on his way to his album listening party in Wyoming on Thursday.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Not buying anything he releases is A CHOICE. Go ask kim for an allowance. She just got me for $200 worth of perfume she'll let you hold a dollar.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Kanye thanked “everybody that didn’t turn they back” on him

    Turn they back?
    With millions of dollars in the bank, you'd think the man could spend a few bucks for an English tutor.

  • samuel severino

    I hate when Sandra twists numbers to fit her agenda. Every single metric shows Kanye with a smashing success so far. Here are the facts.

    Over 100 million streams in the first 3 days.

    Top 7 songs on Spotify AND iTunes.

    #1 iTunes Album in 63 countries (!)

    8th No 1 album tying Eminem

    #1 Apple Music album in 83 countries

    These are just the stats from off the top of my head.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    He probably peaked in 2008 with "Heartless". It's been all downhill since then.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Good!!! *in my evil voice*

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Man that's him! LNBAO


    This my good good sis Japanese face doll!!!


    Hmm ?

  • Malcom Flex

    "F Kanye!" - Me
    Every dollar he gets the white whores win. That's a no for me dawg!

  • Malcom Flex

    Never paid a dime to Koonye Kardashian.

  • Malcom Flex

    The music is trash. My brain dead nephews fierce Ye stans,
    don't even like it.

  • Malcom Flex

    ITA brain dead zombies.

  • jazmine

    Compared to the other “big rappers” this almost a flop probably won’t even outsell Cardi

  • MoniquetheGeek

    Who memorizes stats about kanye except kanye? lol. Why would SR lie when she + kanye are both maga fans?

  • isaiit

    Me too!

  • BadAss Will

    Damn it only has 7 songs he couldn't do better.... Wonder if Trump and his other rascist friends supported him.

  • deadellamore

    Not interested! I guess is Trump fan base came to TRY to save himself #byeKoonye

  • Hummingbird_225

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    He is A disgrace to all African Americans alive.

  • imright

    all 7 songs was trash. straight cheeks !!!

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    What perfume is that?

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    Lyrics are poo. Must be his white fanbase and his Kardashian sisters still buying into this bullshi t. The same ones buying his concert tickets, etc.

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    He's educated but has to speak/type like he isn't. But when he has his Kardashian California accent on, best believe his English is perfect.

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    Eau de DooDoo

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    On the radio, I sometimes hear "All Falls Down", "Through the Wire", and a couple of his other songs from last decade, but I've never heard any song from that Life of Poo album on the radio.

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    He's exploiting the sh it out of that mental illness. First his wife goes around saying ppl shouldn't be throwing out the "mental illness" title, no he's the spokesman for it smh

  • Allihave2say

    People Kanye pissed off that cost him his numbers:
    1. Ancestors,
    2. Slaves,
    3. Black People around the world,
    4. People who have real mental illnesses,
    5. The families and caregivers of people who have real mental illnesses,
    6. Black women,
    7. People really addicted to opiates,
    8. Whitney Houston fans in and out of the music industry,
    who else can we add?

  • Allihave2say

    This is the best comment of the day!!!???

  • Allihave2say

    I've sure all the white people who are direct descendants of slave owners will purchase his album in appreciation of the voluntary slave labor our ancestors gave to help whites build wealth.
    I'm sure all opiate and heroine addicts the gobment is giving rehab instead of prison time will purchase his album.
    The boys down South with confederate flags, especially the families of the white men and women who held a 9 yr old boy, his family and friends hostage at his bday party, threatening to kill them will buy his album.

    Let THEM support him.

  • Allihave2say

    When he's in the zone he sounds like a high pitched white woman.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Crystal gardenia and Body

  • Look@m3

    I heard the single this morning on the radio by default and its crap!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Not anymore than they did Omarosa!

  • Ang

    His mother was chair of the English department at a university. He knows better. He's showing what he thinks of his fans by dumbing himself down.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Well, he didn't did the numbers of like a J. Cole did!

    He deliberately made it a short album and can add move tracks later!

    But, bottom line he is number one, even selling sub-par which isn't good for all the hype, listening party, and his musical super-star status!

    People can spin the numbers, if they like, but they were considerably low as other media outlets reported the same SR!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Well, I'm pleased that he didn't do J. Cole numbers in his first week sales!

    When it's about the music, all of his antics aren't necessary! I know him and Kim are on their to the White House as president and First Lady...


  • Jussjess25
