Deviant Noise's curator insight, April 15, 4:06 PM
This is very true. You can't find everything on any one of the 3 major streaming services (Spotify, AppleMusic, Tidal). I hear a lot of dope ass songs on things like SiriusXM or on blogs online and I can't find it anywhere on Spotify - which makes me want to hit up a torrent or music share site and download it. Which is f***n tedious and annoying - and doesn't really work well either! Ain't nobody got time for that, so I can't wait for the day the streaming guys get it right.

The access model is undoubtedly the future of music, and its services are finally showing a glimpse of their potential. There shouldn’t be any expectations of reaching anything like 100 million subscriptions in the U.S. any time soon. Or ever. But, between strong subscription growth and increased brand awareness, streaming is now an opportunity, not (just) a problem.
