As we’ve all learned, ALBUM STREAMING on sites such as SPOTIFY, was the DOWNFALL for the MUSICIANS, whom received MUCH LESS IN ROYALTIES, ( Which was equivalent to the price of a candy bar, ) than expected, therefore that $2 BILLION DOLLARS, that SPOTIFY had generated, over the past 6 years, was MOSTLY PAID to the RECORD EXECUTIVES, whom POSTED THE MUSIC on this site, WITHOUT THE MUSICIAN’S or SONGWRITER’S CONSENT.
Although the MAJOR RECORDING COMPANIES have INVESTED IN & DEPENDED ON SUCH SITES AS iTUNES & PANDORA, it’s still a BACKFIRE, for the MUSICIANS, who would rather receive ROYALTIES from CD SALES.
JUST BECAUSE SPOTIFY WAS ENDORSED BY A MAJOR CELEBRITY, IT DOESN’T NECESSARY MEAN THAT ALL MUSICIANS SHOULD USE THIS SERVICE!!!!!!!!
FACT: Many MUSICIANS, who were signed by MAJOR LABELS, had their songs and MP3 albums REMOVED FROM SPOTIFY and OTHER STREAMING SITES, all because they’ve just wanted to MARKET THEIR PHYSICAL CDs, not only to INCREASE SALES & ROYALTIES, but to offer the INCENTIVES that the CONSUMERS will receive EXTRA TRACKS, ADDITIONAL ARTWORK, PHOTOGRAPHS, & LINER NOTES, which listed those individuals, whom WORKED ON THOSE CDs.
FACT: Another reason why for this initiative, is because it’s time that the YOUNGER GENERATIONS should STOP USING STREAMING SITES, and START PURCHASING CDs.
