The finale of the hit drama series, Power may have been leaked. However it certainly didn’t stop viewers from tuning in Sunday night, as the show reached record numbers.
While the fourth season of Power’s last three episodes was leaked and shared all over the internet, some were afraid it may ruin the show’s viewership. However, the Courtney Kemp hit series drama certainly didn’t take an “L.” In fact, the season finale topped the previous season 4 record of 1.9 million.

Lack of Promotion And Support? 50 Cent Is Not Pleased With Starz
While the show’s season 4 finale earned record despite being leaked, 50 Cent went from praising the finale by saying, “I just woke up feeling like I’m #1 POWER lives up to the hype,” to slamming the show’s broadcasting network via Instagram.
In a post which has since been deleted, 50 Cent said:
“I don’t think the STARZ network realize your watching POWER because it’s my show. So take STARZ out of your cable package after you see POWER tonight. Then they will understand I bet.”
Moreover, in another post, he stated that he doesn’t get “paid for ratings.”He also noted that he has never seen anything that says, “for your consideration.” And while the post was also deleted by the rapper, he later revealed his conversation with the head of Starz, Chris Albrecht.
“New Deal More POWER coming your way, next season there will be less of a Wait. Thanks for supporting me, ????♂️I can’t believe how much money they just gave me. That shit just fucked with my nerves my hand is shaking. LOL TURN THAT SHIT BACK ON NOW????”
