Rapper Lil Wayne’s new album will be digitally released right after he performs at the MTV Video Music Awards this Sunday, where is has been nominated for two awards.
At midnight, Tha Carter IV will be made available on Amazon.com, iTunes and other digital outlets. And 24 hours later, the physical album will hit the shelves.
Wayne stated that he was excited to be the first artist to utilise such a novel idea, and that he hoped it would open the door for others.
His 2008 album, Tha Carter III, was the bestselling album of that year and also won a Grammy.
