Dane Bertrand's curator insight, October 11, 10:20 AM
This is a great buy by apple music. Apple now has the ability to lead Shazam users straight to apple music. As users find new music apple can give them a link straight to that song on there platform. Apple can also take the data from Shazam and use it to see what people are listening too.    
Taylor Newsom's curator insight, October 12, 7:21 PM
Apple's acquisition of Shazam will allow them to integrate the super sophisticated music recognition software with Siri's equally sophisticated voice recognition AI technology to create a digital streaming juggernaut.

Dane Bertrand's curator insight, October 11, 10:06 AM
I believe this can be a game changer for upcoming artist. This will allow artist to save money on a third party service to get their music on a major platform. This source is a major information resource.    
Taylor Newsom's curator insight, October 13, 3:08 PM
Spotify has made a strong arm power play against Amazon, Google, Apple Music and major labels narrowing the gap between consumers and creators by allowing artists to upload their songs directly to their platform. This is huge. Right now this feature is by invite only meaning that Spotify, in a sense, is taking on the role of not only a tastemaker, but in some capacities as an A&R for up and coming talent.This as another power grab against major labels for the enterprise of streaming music giants. 

Once again, Music Business Worldwide is both an authoritative and objective source of what's happening in the music industry on several fronts from business, financial, to entertainment news. It provides unbiased information and has no monetary incentive to take sides. It is most certainly one of the preeminent gatekeepers of music industry related topics.
illy GOAT's curator insight, November 10, 12:18 PM
This seems very liberating for a artist who just wants to share there work and be heard. Spotify is such a huge platform with millions of consumers. I don't know what the future hold with this, but I find it very interesting.

$100M Magic: Why Bruno Mars And Other Stars Are Ditching Their Managers

$100M Magic: Why Bruno Mars And Other Stars Are Ditching Their Managers | New Music Industry | Scoop.it
In addition to being one of the biggest stars in the music firmament, Bruno Mars is among a handful of high-profile acts who no longer answer to a traditional artist manager, choosing instead to take control of his own career starting two years ago.
more...
Markeis Solomon's curator insight, July 20, 4:46 PM
Many of the industry’s top-paid acts still rely on high-powered managers, from U2 (who are managed by Guy Oseary and earned $118 million last year) to Katy Perry (Martin Kirkup, Bradford Cobb and Steve Jensen, $83 million) to Calvin Harris (Mark Gillespie, $48 million). Given those numbers, some argue that a well-connected guide can prove to be a bargain. Bruno Mars is among a handful of high-profile acts who no longer answer to a traditional artist manager, choosing instead to take control of his own career starting two years ago. Without a manager, Bruno Mars saved at least $10M this year alone.
Malea Weston's curator insight, September 16, 5:50 PM
I believe that an artists manager is a very important factor to an artist career depending on who the artist is because there are people in the industry like Bruno Mars and others named in this article have been in the industry long enough now that they know everything and they can handle everything themselves.

Frankie Brown's curator insight, August 19, 5:41 PM
I believe that it is an artist responsibility to have an social conscious and  a level of awareness when it comes to the fans of their music. Therfore; all the songs filled with the glorification of glamour and other materlistic views should be replaced with upliftment or relatable songs that can the fans can connect with because the people that purchase their music aren't as well off as the artist.

The source of the reliability of information could be in question because threw research i found out that it is an information and opinion website. Nevertheless; I found the information given to me to have some relevance because there aren't many artist making music with social content. I don't know if this source has a major informational resource that is used by the industry professionals but i found it to be useful to me at this present time.

When will musicians see the fruits of their labor? It's disappointing to have systems in place to keep you from benefiting from what you created.  
Destiny Acevedo's curator insight, November 11, 10:01 PM
I'm not to sure about the music industry reflecting on society's economic inequality. I've never heard of it. But, I do think that music about having money can influence and change a persons perspective on pursuing their dreams and career, motivating them to earn money.
