What The Music Industry is Thinking

Distribution is in free fall today. Artists are releasing singles daily, weekly, and monthly. Over-saturation and noise are real issues today. It’s more challenging to get the word out with everyone fighting for attention. We are living in an attention economy. Other advise such as Jimmy Iovine that quality, not quantity should be barometers. The breakout artist of the year was Billie Eilish (Interscope). But she didn’t oversaturate with content. Everything she put out was good followed by spe...

Jimmy Iovine: The Music Business’s Looming Problem

“Margin. It doesn’t scale. At Netflix, the more subscribers you have, the less your costs are. In streaming music, the costs follow you. And the streaming music services are utilities — they’re all the same. Look at what’s working in video. Disney has nothing but original stuff. Netflix has tons of original stuff. But the music streaming services are all the same, and that’s a problem.” – The New York Times

Unfortunately, hip-hop is a genre where nearly 90% of the talent and material consists of nothing more than stunting on your peers, your enemies and hell, even your own family.But Dr. Dre is a whole-ass 54-year-old billionaire who, for the most part, keeps his mouth shut, head down and minds his business.So when Dre posted a mocking post on his Instagram account that highlighted the fact that his daughter, Truly Young...
