    To say the music industry is not declining is delusional. They are making less money than ever before, sales clearly show that in the album and singles chart.
    I think you should have a look at the chart because you clearly misread the data.

    Streaming is by far and large the largest source of revenue, in fact already responsible for more than 50% of the industry’s revenue, meaning more than physical sales, downloads and performance rights combined.

    And if charts are too complex, here is the IFPI's latest report on the music industry in 2020, "delusionally" titled Music Revenues Rise For Fifth Straight Year to $20 Billion:
    https://www.billboard.com/articles/b...navirus-impact

    "Total revenues climbed to $20.2 billion, a rise of 8.2% on the previous year. Driving the growth was a 23% jump in streaming revenues, which totaled $11.4 billion, accounting for 56% of all sales and offsetting a 5% fall in physical sales."

    So maybe the published weekly charts are wrong, maybe sales are actually huge and if that’s the case there is no read you why Kylie and other acts shouldn’t be getting budgets set in the millions as they seem to have billions of money at their fingertips to spend on videos.

    The weekly charts will tell you the same thing.

    In an average week during 2020, the weekly figure for the singles market in the UK was around 20 million sale-equivalent units. Back in the mid 00s it would be slightly above one million, occassionally dipping below that figure.

    For albums, the drop hasn't been too dramatic - last week in the UK 1.7 million albums were sold in spite of it being the middle of Janaury in lockdown. On a perfectly regular week in the mid 00s the number would be around 2.5 million.

    The main difference between then and now is that now the Top 100 accounts for a very small portion of overall sales whereas back then it accounted for a vast majority. To give you a precise figure, on an average week in 2020, the whole Top 100 combined accounted for just 8% of the overall music consumption.

    Sorry folks, Kylie is a mid 50s woman in the pop world. Theres not many of them around.
    She doesnt have a fan base like JLo or the other 50yos.
    Young folks arent going to jump to her music cause of a ft artist etc.
    Stop living in the 2000s.
    Kylie has had her time. 3 consecutive #1 albums is amazing.
    Who cares about singles anymore and where they going to chart etc.
    Just be happy that she is still making music for her existing fan base!!!!

    So this is overall music sales you’re talking about, not necessarily whether the record labels of the past are themselves declining. Streaming is contributing massive sales but so many artists are saying they make hardly any money from streaming.

    The biggest gig in the world (and the most credible) is actually Glastonbury. Oh that went to Kylie!!!!

    The reviews Kylie has received for Disco are stunning, across the globe. JLo is not revered or praised for her back catologue, her shows or her artistry. Kylie wins hands down on all counts and her legacy is there for all to applaud.

    via GIPHY




    Why are we still talking about the pop star thing?
    Jlo made over $400 million... do you think she cares what peple think of her?

    Her image is what keeps her relevant and gets her everything. in other words... It is Not all about image. It's her trojan horse

    Glastonburry is the biggest gig and the most credible for the UK - agreed.
    She broke records with it. 3.2 million views. and over 100k live viewers.

    3.2M is 4.8% of the UK

    The superbowl only has 65000 live viewers but was watched by 103 million people (31.4% of the USA)

    then... the Jlo/Shakira show was also watched on youtube... over 300 million times

    Are we really disputing what is the bigger gig?


    and can you please see this as something else than an attack on Kylie. cause these posts steer the people on here in the wrong direction and discussion and before we know it it's dumbed down to. Jlo Good, Kylie Bad

    Got that perfect body but she ain’t got the moves. Let’s get back to that Real Groove, baby...

    P.s. I wanna see Miss Summer pay homage to “Love don’t cost a thing” 20th, bring out those gold hoops 😍

    This is where I feel like a Kylie needs to step it up. Her image goes back and forth with forward thinking and then back peddling to safe “typical” Kylie.
    Very Buff Puff apricot sponge this picture. #vanilla
