5. They have created a new blueprint for releasing music in order to avoid leaks from happening.
Aside from protecting their music, Jay and 'Ye also struck a deal with iTunes to release WTT digitally a few days before the physical copy of the album arrives in stores. Not only did this cater directly to the fans who want to purchase the digital copy of WTT, but it also prevented the album from leaking out weeks in advance. Look for record labels to take this approach more often in the near future with their bigger releases. Hopefully they watched The Throne and took notes, because this was definitely another way that WTT helped change the game.
