Kanye West Fan Goes Wild During ‘Vultures 1’ Italian Event Leave a comment


A Kanye West fan stole the spotlight after he stormed the stage in a wild display of enthusiasm during a recent event in Italy.

During a Vultures 1 listening event in Milan, Italy on Thursday (February 22), Mr. West and Ty Dolla $ign were interrupted when an enthusiastic fan rushed the stage to greet Ye.

Though successful momentarily, security swiftly intervened, escorting the fan offstage.

Watch the incident unfold in the video below.

The concert chaos comes on the heels of news that Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign saw seven figures in revenue from Vultures 1 in just its first week.

In a breakdown by Billboard on Wednesday (February 21), it was revealed that Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign’s album, independently released via Label Engine, likely earned them a significant share of revenue, around 95%.

Vultures 1 amassed 169 million on-demand streams during its debut week, translating to roughly $892,000, supplemented by approximately $145,000 from sales. Considering global streams and publishing, the magazine estimates the collaborators have easily crossed the million-dollar mark.

What’s more impressive is that the album didn’t even have a full week to do these numbers, as it arrived on a Saturday instead of the traditional Friday. In addition, it was met with multiple hiccups on streaming services because of a discrepancy with its initial distributor, FUGA.

The album was temporarily removed from streaming services five days after its release due to a complaint from FUGA.

“On Friday, February 9, 2024, a long-standing FUGA client delivered the album Vultures 1 through the platform’s automated processes, violating our service agreement,” the company said. “Therefore, FUGA is actively working with its DSP partners and the client to remove Vultures 1 from our systems.”

The album was quickly reinstated on streaming platforms after Kanye and Ty  found another distributor, Label Engine, who had previously released the singles “Vultures” and “Talking/Once Again.”

No matter the issues, Vultures 1 debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 148,000 album-equivalent units.

Kanye is now level with Bruce Springsteen and Barbra Streisand with 11 No. 1 albums to his name, with only Drake and Taylor Swift (13), JAY-Z (14) and The Beatles (19) ahead of him.

The album is Ty Dolla $ign’s first No. 1 and second top 10 following 2020’s Featuring Ty Dolla $ign.

Reflecting on the monumental occasion Ye issued a brief statement to Complex saying: “It’s a beautiful time.”
