Kanye West released his seventh solo album, "The Life of Pablo," for one day and then admitted he is $53 million in personal debt.

On Saturday night and after much delay, Kanye West finally released his new album, “The Life of Pablo,” exclusively to Tidal, a music streaming service similar to Spotify. However, he took the album off-sale just one day later, saying he needs to fix the song “Wolves.” He then finished his bizarre album release and un-release by stating he’s $53 million in debt.

West did not explain how he incurred so much debt, but undoubtedly some of it must come from his fashion line. In a 2015 interview with T Magazine, West admitted that he went into debt to start his fashion line, “Yeezy.”

After admitting his debt, West went on to tell Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to “invest $1bn into Kanye West ideas … after realizing he is the greatest living artist and greatest artist of all time.” He also begged fans to subscribe to Tidal, which seems to have worked. Thanks to West’s exclusive release on the service, the app is now No. 1 on the Apple App Store.

Tidal, owned by Jay-Z, has struggled to gain popularity since its re-launch by the rapper. Three different CEOs were named in the first nine months, and Tidal fell to No. 872 in the App Store just weeks after the re-launch. It is unclear whether Tidal will maintain its current popularity after the hoopla of West’s new album dies down.
