But Apple Music couldn’t keep the duo down.

Ty Dolla $ign and Kanye West are speaking out against streaming platforms despite the widespread success of their collaborative Vultures 1 album.

On Saturday (March 2), West shared a video to his Instagram Story during which Ty Dolla $ign was scrolling through Apple Music’s discovery pages. In the short clip, Ty points out that the fan-favorite album cut, “Carnival,” managed to go No. 1 even as the algorithm promoted other releases while allegedly suppressing theirs.

“We never had anything in the new music,” Ty Dolla $ign said before adding. “And we never had best new songs.”

Vultures 1 debuted at No. 1 after selling more than 165,000 total album-equivalent units and spent a second week at the top after moving around 75,000 more. The project is expected to revert to the No. 3 slot in its third week. Meanwhile, the listening events for the project alone reportedly have already grossed more than $12 million—considering Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign’s Chicago and New York listening events each grossed around $2.4 million and the figures for the three European events are projected to be the same.
