Streaming Has Made Artists Release More Music Than Ever


While I was browsing thru The Wall Street Journal, I found this article by Journalist Neil Shah reported that the music industry is pumping out more music than ever. Due to the industry's ever-changing landscape, the amount of music released globally is roughly seven times more now than it did in the 1960s. Well Dang, that's quite a jump. He also said this that made brain wheels turn:
"Unlike CDs or Downloads, which generate revenue once, streaming a song generates royalties everytime, "Shah says. "That has major labels bidding on catalogs of music and reissuing old music as they battle for market share."

Now, this makes sense and now I understand why artists are releasing music faster than ever. He also focused on hip-hop, noting that tracks from that genre uploaded to SoundCloud rose 30% in January alone compared to 2017. Neilsen recorded that 150,000 albums were sold compared to just 36,000 in 2000 in 2017 which means peoples appetite for music is growing.

Meanwhile, Apple's Music Director Jimmy Lovine recently said these music streaming services are too similar, and something has to change.
"The Streaming services are all charging $9.99 and everyone has the same music"



What separates iTunes, Tidal, Spotify, and Apple Music? Ok so some might have exclusives that you can only listen on one platform, but eventually, it flows to the other platforms because you can't really force people to pay for a service just to get exclusive, I know I wouldn't, I would just wait till it comes out. Sooner or later somethings got to give.

Oh Lord, I'm so happy, I don't even know where to start! Ok... I am a victim of the 90's eyebrow trend, I had pencil thin eyebrows and I have thin hair so growing them back was out of the question. For years I've been trying different things to help grow my brows back, but I just got stuck drawing my brows for the next 19 years and I can never get them close enough. As years went by, my brows just kept getting thinner and thinner til I literally had just about a line of hair growing...that's it!  My Story I never had really thick brows growing up but they fit me for what I was born within the trend in the 80's. It wasn't til 2006 I started to learn to apply makeup and use brow pencils to fill in my eyebrows and I got better as the years went by but I was nervous giving myself the full ombre eyebrows that are trending right now. As you can see, I always played it safe drawing on my eyebrows and even tho I used good products to make them stay all day
