In the middle of Kanye's political escapades, he also released two singles, "Lift Yourself" and "Ye vs. The People" and now the first week's US sales are in, and it's pretty terrible.
"Ye vs. The People" had only 12,000 US digital sales the first week and "Lift Yourself" had an even sadder 4,000 US digital sales. Yikes.
Maybe getting people to "think more freely" wasn't in your best interest, Kanye.
Do you think Kanye's latest controversy is the reason his singles flopped? Or is it just bad music?
