UMG recorded music revenues up 2.4% as streaming offsets physical decline | Soundtrack | Scoop.it
Universal Music Group’s recorded music revenues were up 2.4% in 2015 thanks to growth in streaming, which “more than offset” the decline in physical and download revenues.

Total UMG revenues were up 2.7% at constant currency, up by €5.11 billion (£3.98 billion).

Streaming accounting for 52% of digital recorded music revenues in H2 2015 and streaming revenue was up 47% across the year, while downloads declined 13%, according to yesterday's earnings release by parent company Vivendi.

Along with all the musical icons who died in 2016, so did the last hope of digital music as any sort of sales savior.

This article is more informative rather than opinionated. It sources it's information with links that support the statements.
David Ford's curator insight, December 9, 2018 10:31 PM
This is very alarming. Especially for any aspiring artist! The benefit of the internet age, is the accessibility it gives artist to create and connect with their fans. The downside, is the over saturation, and inability to make money from music sales.

I'm honestly not real sure about the credibility of this website. It is a secured site, and most of the information given was backed with credible links and sources, but I've never heard of them before, and the domain is a .ly which is new to me. I also feel like the writer tried to be very humorous with regards to a serious topic.
Jonathan Fondren's curator insight, October 20, 2019 3:20 PM
Opinion: I believe some of the findings in this article are pretty crazy to see. With times changing, stats change, and one stat that was cited in this article is that nearly 38% of ALL music consumption is from stream streaming. Another stat that was insane to me, is that 1500 streams is equal to 1 sale. In prospective, someone would have to generate almost a million streams just to earn almost $1300. That to me, is just a shocking change that needs focus. 

Evaluation: This article is reliable because the Author was in plain site, as well as the contact information. The findings that were referenced, were cited, and the article had a date that wasn’t too long ago. 

Major Source: I believe this to be a major source for audio industry professionals because there’s a huge impact on the industry that needs attention.
