Unauthorized Apple Music Web Player Attracts More Than 200,000 Users
Students from the University of Kent in the UK have created an Apple Music web player. Since it launched five months ago, it has attracted tons of users.
Hate to break it to you, but the music industry has changed.
The sheer output of songs is scary.
Over 40,000 songs are being released daily. That's over 300,000 songs a week.
Years ago, I predicted that streaming would save the music business and save us from the Napster era.
I was right...thankfully.
Today, everything is all you can eat for a monthly price, and people are willing to pay for music because the streaming experience is just that great.
Back in the day, when Spotify launched, I was user #11.
I saw it coming. I felt it coming. I knew it would work.
So many people in my circle didn't believe it could happen.
It was becoming normal for people to get music for free through Torrents, Napster, etc.
It seemed not even iTunes could save us.
But, sure enough, Spotify figured it out.
Now we're riding a major wave of profitability. Music companies are making an excessive $20 to $25 million a day from streaming alone.
Before streaming took off, everyone had to compete with “free.”
A whole generation of kids grew up with the idea that music had no value.
Today, music not only has value. It is once again one of the most profitable entertainment industries in the world.
Despite music being more profitable than ever...
...why are so many artists struggling?
They’re struggling because with 40,000 new songs being released per day, it's hard to cut through the noise and truly make it.
Hard, but not impossible.
Hi...I'm Charlie Walk, and insiders refer to me as “The Artist Behind the Artist." Throughout my career, I've driven the promotion and marketing campaigns of over 300 number one songs on the Billboard Top 40 Charts.
More importantly, I've seen exactly what an artist needs to do to not only survive...but thrive in this new streaming era.
I put together a short video where I explain exactly what's going on in the music industry and how I can help.
