Billboard hops in on the GD USB album debate

Article: American Billboard questions why G-Dragon's USB album needs to be categorized

Source: Sports Donga via Naver

1. [+11,981, -1,138] Why does everyone keep distracting from the point of the issue? It's not the fact that the album's a USB that's the problem, it's that it only contains one link.

2. [+9,546, -878] This is not a debate over whether it's a CD or a USB. This whole thing's a problem because the USB contains a link and not digital files. It cannot be considered an album because there are no songs in it.

3. [+8,286, -775] I don't care that it's a USB, I care that there's only a link in it;;; might as well just sell the URL at that point

4. [+7,087, -764] They're seriously asking us to consider a poorly constructed 4 GB USB containing one single link as an album? I'm sick of Billboard being used for media play all the time, it's pathetic.

5. [+5,642, -738] The idea itself was revolutionary but it's not an album, it's just a website ㅎㅎ it doesn't have any song files

6. [+900, -73] So can you plug this into your car and listen to music?

7. [+311, -76] YG's media play is sickening. They keep their mouth shut when their statements are needed but respond to other issues like this ㅋ goosebumps

1. [+778, -111] You're seriously trying to tell us that a USB containing only a link is an album?? Did YG beg you to write this article?

2. [+721, -74] I'm pretty sure Billboard wrote this article thinking the USB contains music files. No way they'd say this if they knew it was only a link.

3. [+570, -114] GD, TOP, Kangin, Jung Yoora jail!!!!

4. [+64, -3] Yes, a USB can be considered an album, but in order to be considered so, it needs to contain music files

5. [+58, -1] Nothing plays when you plug it into your car so how is it an album;;

6. [+58, -3] F*ck off, it's not an album. If you're calling this USB an album, then my hard drive is an album too.

7. [+55, -3] So did Billboard even look at what's inside the USB before writing this?

8. [+39, -1] So if I ripped off a piece of paper and wrote down a link, is that piece of paper considered an album too?

9. [+35, -1] So let's say the USB with a link is an album then... then what happens when your internet is out. It's no longer an album, it's just a USB...

10. [+25, -0] How many times do we have to say that there's no music in the USB, just a link. Korea's already done with this issue, it's not an album, so you Americans decide what you want to consider it.
