Kanye West’s Vultures 1: A Streaming Odyssey of Controversy

Kanye West’s latest collaborative album with Ty Dolla $ign, Vultures 1, may soon disappear from streaming platforms, courtesy of its distributor, FUGA. The album’s release on platforms like Spotify and Apple Music over the weekend occurred without FUGA’s approval, leading to the distributor’s active efforts to remove it from their systems.

FUGA's Statement and Decision

Late last year, FUGA had the chance to release Vultures 1 but declined, exercising ordinary business judgment. However, a longstanding FUGA client bypassed this decision by delivering the album through automated processes, violating their service agreement. As a result, FUGA is collaborating with DSP partners to rectify the unauthorized release.

Major Distributors’ Resistance

Billboard reports that other major distributors refrained from working with Kanye West on Vulture 1. This reluctance stems from West’s history of antisemitic comments and insufficient promotional support from streaming platforms.

Vultures 1’s Uncertain Return

The timeline for Vultures 1’s return to streaming platforms remains uncertain after its removal by FUGA. Legal threats from artists like Ozzy Osbourne and Donna Summer’s estate further complicate West’s album saga.

Prior to FUGA’s intention to remove Vultures 1, Donna Summer’s estate successfully took down the song “GOOD (DON’T DIE)” due to unauthorized interpolation of “I Feel Love.” Osbourne, angered by West’s use of a 1983 Black Sabbath live performance sample, denounced West on social media.
