Blonde has been in steady rotation for almost a week now & despite the album being on pace for the No. 1 spot on the charts, new reports say the numbers still could have been much higher. Earlier today Music Business Worldwide revealed that Frank Ocean’s new album has been illegally downloaded over 750,000 times worldwide since its release.  Many people believe streaming exclusivity is a big reason for those piracy numbers being so high, but with UMG taking steps to end exclusives that won’t be the case much longer.
