Internet piracy received an open handed slap to the face hours ago, when ‘Snapshot‘ performer RuPaul shocked the world with the release of a ‘decoy’ album!
How the ‘Drag‘ diva pulled a fast one on illegal downloaders?
Full story below…
Hours ago, music lovers around the world may have believed they’d hit a goldmine of sorts, when they discovered Ru’s new LP ‘Born Naked‘ on numerous ‘bootleg music’ sharing Torrent sites, simply waiting to be downloaded.
Little did they know, that the LP that now sat in their desktop was nothing more than a decoy planted by the star himself, uploaded to protect the real album from piracy.
Indeed, upon downloading what they believed to be ‘Naked’, fans would have heard this…
Hilarious to say the least, each decoy song would begin as it does on the real LP, but soon fades to make way for Paul, who takes to the mic to scold those who didn’t purchase the project.
Upon learning of this, one Tumblr user shared:
“We work so hard on this music,” RuPaul said of his plan. “So we thought, why not flood the torrents with a decoy album that educates consumers on why it’s important to buy music.”
